Auto Stop opened its first location in Northern Virginia in 1995, and our second shop Auto Stop Falls Church shortly after. Our continued growth is due to our integrity-driven approach to automotive repairs. We are consistently one of the highest rated shops in the area for both the quality of our mechanics and our fair prices. Our shop founder, Tom Lapham, started out providing mobile maintenance and repairs out of a fully stocked van. This business model only lasted a few months, as the referrals started pouring in. Soon he was renting an individual bay out of a shop, and shortly after he opened his first shop in nearby Arlington. Walk-ins are welcome for quick service and you can wait in our sunlit and lobby that’s equipped with free Wi-Fi. If we need your vehicle for the day we minimize your inconvenience by providing a free loaner car, free shuttle, or afterhours drop-off and pick-up. While your car is in the shop, we keep you updated via email or text.
We are a family owned and operated shop who understands how nerve-wracking and inconvenient it can be to take your vehicle to the shop, which is why we make it as easy as possible. Our ASE Certified technicians take the time to listen to your maintenance and repair needs, then get to work performing a full diagnostic and visual inspection. You’ll never feel pressured to complete a repair and you can rest assured that our prices are both competitive and fair. Many of our customers choose Auto Stop Falls Church as their trusted dealership alternative. Our quality is equal or better than your dealer, our prices are lower, and you never have to wonder if you really needed the work that was performed. We have the advanced computers, diagnostics, databases, and tools to ensure we can complete work on absolutely any make or model, including hybrids. All of our work is backed by a 36 months/36,000 miles nationwide warranty. Even if you move to a new state we still have you covered!
Staying on top of your preventive maintenance is the best way to minimize your lifelong mechanic expenses, extend the lifecycle of your vehicle, and protect your investment so that you can get maximum trade in or sale value. The Auto Stop Falls Church provides all factory scheduled maintenance and can create a custom maintenance scheduled for those who commute or drive full-time. Walk-ins are always welcome!
The staff at Auto Stop Arlington, especially Lucas, have been so helpful every time that I have gone in. Lucas helped me immediately when I walked in and answered all of my questions. Everyone has been extremely professional and friendly every time I call. Both times I've been they were able to get me an appointment quickly and had a fast turnaround in fixing my issues. I will definitely be coming back again! My first time I needed a new battery. The team provided me with an overview of all ... Read More
Today I was blown away by the service I received from Lucas at Auto Stop. I've used this business before for my current and previous vehicles so I know they are honest, fair, and accommodating already, and its why I keep going back. Long story short, I found myself very low on gas this morning on my way to work and realized I had no way of opening my vehicle's car fuel door. Last time I fueled up, a tiny metal piece had flown off and I didn't realize it was critical for opening this door. I h... Read More
Take care of your car at a reasonable price with great service. I've been using them for several years on a few different cars and they do a great job. Continual great still in 2022!
I came to get my oil changed and they told me I needed to replace a belt in my car. They replaced it incorrectly which caused trouble while driving. I brought it in for them to fix twice but the belt was still not placed properly so I had to go to another mechanic to fix the issue they created. The misplaced belt caused the steering wheel to lock up sometimes and weird noises when I started my car. However, all of my prior visits (tire replacements, oil changes) were good but no longer return... Read More
I’ve gone to this shop twice now for services on my vehicles. Both times they’ve been very quick and friendly. I’d recommend them over any dealership service shop.
We are out of town visiting from Florida and unfortunately picked up a nail while touring around the city. We called the local dealer and they told us they could get us in in 2 weeks, for a tire repair. After a few more phone calls and no luck I called Toms Auto Stop shop and spoke to Brandy. They were extremely busy as well but she understood our urgency and was able to get us in for a 3pm and get the tire fixed while we waited near by. We had our 4 kids and 2 dogs with us so this was such ... Read More
As a woman, I have a hard time finding a shop that will address the issues I have at a fair price. I had been calling around to see if a shop in my area could repair my splash shield, and either the person who answered the phone was rude, or told me that I had to leave my car ALL DAY for a 5 minute service. I did a quick google search and found Auto Stop Arlington, and just decided to take my chances and visit. As soon as I pulled up, I could see that is was pretty busy, but Lucas approached ...

I was able to call first thing in the morning and spoke to Lucas. He was able to not only get my car in the same day car for service, but he also had it finished by that same day! Overall, the service was amazing and I will definitely be returning if I ever have anymore car trouble!
Auto Stop was extremely helpful when I needed to replace an A/C hose that had a leak. They were quick diagnosing the issue and once they had my part, the turn around time was perfect. Pricing was extremely transparent and on par with industry.
Excellent service and reasonable pricing considering how much work my car needed. Lucas Monaco was especially professional and helpful, working after hours to accommodate my schedule.
