shopfrontWhether your vehicle is domestic or foreign, we want to be the shop that not only does your required repairs, but maintains your vehicle to the highest standards in the industry. We are an AAA award winning shop year after year. In 2005, we were awarded the Top Shop Award by AAA for Western Washington. We are also a NAPA AutoCare Facility. Our Technicians in partnership with NAPA, are constantly continuing to stay well educated with all types of vehicles (i.e. hybrids, foreign or domestic). We want to be your One Stop Auto Center.

Owners Mike and Barb Donahue have been in the automotive business since 1975 when they took over Westhill Shell In Kent, WA, then purchased Northshore Exxon in 1981 and Fife Exxon in 1990. In 1996, Mike decided to concentrate on the auto repair business and expanded into the RV repair business.

After purchasing property across the street from Northshore Exxon (presently Northshore 76), the current building was erected to accommodate cars, trucks and recreational vehicles. A lift was installed that will put a 37 foot motor home in the air for servicing. Mike Donahue, an ASE Master Technician, employs 3 technicians, all ASE certified.

Northshore Automotive & RV Repair has been a family owned and operated business serving the Federal Way and NE Tacoma area since 1981. From that year forward, our mission remains the same: to provide you and your family with only quality products, the needed work, done well, finished on time and at a fair price and with all work guaranteed.

Northshore Automotive and RV Repair is a state of the art auto repair facility for most domestic and foreign cars and trucks as well as most gas powered motor homes. We have a clean comfortable waiting area with a flat screen TV. Need to work while you wait? Enjoy our free high speed WIFI while you wait.

Barb and I would like to invite you to visit our facility. We have been helping our friends and neighbors in the Federal Way and NE Tacoma area since 1981. Give us a try!

Very impressed! Art was honest and did great work. No surprises. I felt that they were very concerned about their reputation and did all they could to show it.

I have been taking our vehicles to Northshore for decades. Customer service, caring, competence...And value in cost savings, as they've saved me a lot of money in not doing work that didn't need to be done. When you find these things, you don't go anywhere else.

Northshore Automotive is the only place we take our vehicles. Art and crew are always hard and honest workers. We've been customers for years. I also recommend them to all my friends and family.

I've taken all three of my '90s era vehicles into Art's shop on 21st Ave. SW just north of SW 356th in Federal Way and have always had good, honest, quick service from his professional crew of auto technicians. Their service convinced me to drop going to the dealership in Puyallup. I would highly recommend taking your older vehicle to Northshore Automotive & RV Repair any day.
