Auto Stop opened its first location in Northern VA in 1995, and our second shop in 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 needs where you can wait in our sunlit and inviting lobby—where we have free Wi-Fi. If we will 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 will 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 will never feel pressured to complete a repair and you can rest assured that are prices are both competitive and fair. Many of our customers choose the Auto Stop 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. This means that even if you to a new state your work is still covered!
Staying on top of your proactive and 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 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!
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!
