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!
I am so appreciative of their service. They were extremely professional and communicative. Their system that shared pictures and progress were really great. They were texting me throughout the time they had my car. Thank you!
I have a Saab and it's hard to find places that will service them anymore. I called in an scheduled a diagnostic appointment. Shawn was very clear about what was involved, that they could check out everything and if I used them to perform the repairs the diagnostic fee would be subtracted from the total bill. Shawn called me back after they had some time to look around to explain that they fixed the misfire issue I took the car in for, but my 19 year old car was in pretty bad shape and needed... Read More
Easily the best auto shop in the DMV. Management was amazing and the technicians did a fantastic job. I knew I was getting a fair price. Car work made easy.
I am originally from out of State and moved to the DMV for work. I had not found any businesses to work on my vehicle and to my luck my vehicle broke down on the side of the highway. I was unsure what to do. I first found another business to look at my vehicle who wanted to charge me between $6,000-$10,000 to fix it. I looked around and found Auto Stop and I am sure glad that I did. They towed my vehicle for me from the old business to theirs. They kept me updated almost every day on what wa... Read More
Best place to get your car service. I had an amazing experience getting my oil changed. I didn’t know what’s type of oil I should get. Steve was very helpful in explaining all of the differences and making sure I made the best decision for the maintenance of my car. Great experience! Highly recommend going there for any services you need. Very professional, educated, and helpful. Will be returning!
Their report was solid, thorough and transparent. With detailed photos of everything and everyone performing the tests. Very good explanations of what was found, what needed to be done and how “urgent” or not each thing needed attention. Repair was on point and quick turnaround. Kind of pricey, though, but I guess that comes with the level of attention and work they did.

I had an issue but when I brought it to their attention, James handled it with a level of integrity and honesty not often seen. It is refreshing to experience such a high level of care. This is the only place I'll take my car.
I chose Auto Stop based on the positive reviews I found on Google. I am happy to add my own positive review. Even though my issue was nothing more than a minor tire leak, the team at Auto Stop took me seriously, was professional and treated me with courtesy. I appreciated that they explained what the repair entailed, how they fixed the problem, and answered my questions. Lastly, the price charged was very competitive. I felt my business was truly appreciated. I will gladly bring my car back t... Read More
Went back to Auto Stop after my car's warranty had expired and I'm so glad to be back with them. They literally just saved me ~$4,000 while fixing 3-4 problems the dealer had missed entirely. From taking me back into the bay to walk under my car and show me what was needed and what wasn't, to towing me when I needed it and providing a loaner before I even had to ask, Auto Stop goes all-out. It's probably not the cheapest shop in the area, but it's far from the most expensive, and I've never ... Read More
I used Auto Stop when living in Alexandria/South Arlington and have been ecstatic we have them available now in Falls Church. Simply put the Auto Stop team is my go to and whatever service i can do there, I do. They're honest, they're transparent and friendly. With the Pandemic they also have gone above/beyond with free of charge pickup/dropoff.
