Take a moment to read what our customers have to say about us:


We have been going to Total Performance for five years now. What we have experienced with not only our vehicles but with the numerous customers that we refer them is that first and foremost they will immediately make time to assist you and they do so in a professional and honest way. John takes the overwhelming world of technical "mumbo jumbo" and cuts to the chase with an extremely articulate command of Automotive Language that he presents in a very clear and concise way. He makes his customers not only informed about the mechanical aspects of the vehicle but his customers genuinely walk away truly understanding where the "issue" originated, what may have caused it and what is recommended to fix the problem. The Tech's at TP have a wide spectrum of vehicles they can work on and Garrett must keep his profit margins slim because the service you are provided compared to what you pay will have you deeply in gratitude to them!! Trust this shop!!! --- They are a rare find!


My partners! I've been calling John and the guys at Total Performance for years now. We have three cars - two with 250k miles each, and "the baby" of the group with 160k. And they keep on going thanks to the expert care of Total Performance. No one wants to throw money away. I trust John when he helps me decide what has to be done on the cars, and what can wait. I feel as though he is looking out for my best interests, not just up selling. Trust these guys! Mary The best kept secret in Tacoma! Have been using this repair shop for about 18 years. A lot of repair shops treat women like they are idiots. Garret and John will explain things to me and offer viable solutions to repair my car. I was in the automotive industry for almost 15 years and the dealership I worked for took their cars to this shop. Their honesty and integrity have always been above reproach. It is nice to see that there are still some people that will stand behind their work
