Auto Stop opened our doors in 1995 with the goal of providing honest auto repairs at a fair price to the residents of Arlington & Falls Church, VA. We provide our clients with dealership quality at a fraction of the price. Our goal is to enhance the reputation of our industry by delivering a superior quality of customer service and car care from a family owned and operated shop. It all started out organically with Tom Lapham providing mobile repairs right in the driveway of his valued customers. Word of his quality approach to car care spread and he soon began renting out a single repair bay. Work was soon overflowing, and the first Auto Stop opened its doors. Years later, we are still proud to provide the honest automotive repairs and services we became known for.
We are the shop of the future with the goal to transform the way you think about care care. From the moment you walk through our sunlit and inviting lobby you will see and feel the difference. Our team is ASE Certified, and it doesn’t stop there. We have invested in the latest automotive technology and have onsite computer diagnostics to complete advanced digital inspections for every vehicle make and model. To ensure we can resolve any automotive issue e have modern tools and access to countless repair archives and databases. We keep you updated by your preference of text or email, so you don’t have to sit waiting by the phone all day. We are a green automotive shop who recycles cardboard, tire, paper, metal parts, antifreeze, oil, and more. We are a proud member of our local and global community. We sponsor several local baseball teams and support a long list of non-profits—including a Mechanic-trade school in Haiti and the local homeless shelter Carpenter’s Shelter.
All of our repairs are backed by a 36 month warranty. We are a full-service shop providing you with absolutely any repair you require. If your repair requires a full day, you can arrange to use a free loaner car, our free shuttle, or to utilize afterhours drop-off or pick-up. We will keep you updated on your repairs via your preference of text or email. Stop by either Auto Stop any time you are in need of:

Excellent service. Great customer service. They don’t try to push you to buy/change extra things that aren’t needed. Alex was very helpful and kind. I highly recommend this place!
PS - I love how they always have hot coffee and snacks for their customers 🙂
Brought my car in for my state inspection last minute after work on the last day of the month. They serviced me right away and even stayed late to finish my car! Great customer service AND they were cool with me bringing my dog in the waiting room.
As a woman, I’ve had many experiences in auto shops where I feel objectified, taken advantage of financially, or talked down to. All the staff at autozone were fantastic, the prices are reasonable and upfront, and I feel super comfortable coming back. 10/10 would recommend 🙂
For anyone looking for honest and professional service, then this is the place to go. Got to meet Tom before he headed to the other shop (even gave me a ride to my job). David was exceptional from our initial conversation until I picked up my car.
Honesty is hard to find when it comes to getting work done on your car, but you can trust you'll find it here. Thanks much!!!
I am new to VA and typically take my car exclusively to the dealership, but in an effort to branch out I tried Auto Stop. I had the best costumer service. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable and answered my questions. The owner went above and beyond to show me things on my car I was curious about such as the condition on my brakes and rotors. If you are in need of servicing your vehicle, I highly recommend you check out Auto Stop. Oh yeah, the price here was much more affordable than the cost at the dealer!
