Welcome to Tvetens Auto Clinic – Your Lakewood Area Auto Repair Shop

IScott and Rachel Tvetenn the early 1940s, “Sandy” Otto Tveten bought a Texaco garage located on Gravelly Lake Drive in Tacoma, Washington. At the same time he homesteaded on Steilacoom Lake. In 1949 he and his two sons, Dick and Gene, built another shop on 100th & Bridgeport. Dick managed the Bridgeport store and Gene (Scott’s dad) helped Sandy run the Gravelly Lake store.

By 1962, Sandy was ready to retire, so they sold the Gravelly Lake store and the brothers combined forces at the Bridgeport location. Tveten’s Lakewood incorporated in 1965 and the brothers’ wives, Betty and Jane, became actively involved as bookkeeper and support staff.

Scott started working in 1969 (at age 12) and became a full time employee by 1976. During those years, he built his technical skills by learning from his uncle, his dad, and their lead tech, Norris Skimmerhorn.
In 1990, Dick and Betty retired, and Gene gradually turned management of the business over to Scott and his wife Rachael. Tveten’s Auto Clinic became a reality in 1997 when the brothers sold the Bridgeport property and Gene and Jane retired. We built a new, state-of-the-art facility on the portion of the land Scott and Rachael purchased.

Our general automotive business is third generation owned and operated. When designing our facility, every care was given to consider the local community and its environment. It is truly state-of-the-art and we take pride in treating our clients and employees like family.

We attribute our success to three basic values that have, and always will be, the backbone of our business: Personal Service; Pride in Craftsmanship; and Commitment to Quality. We will continue to combine these traditions with the finest facility, equipment and training available.

The rapid changes in technology create our company’s greatest challenge. Keeping our employees and equipment current with automotive manufacturers’ changes is costly and time consuming. We are fortunate to have a qualified staff that is eager and willing to accept the challenge. We are committed to being involved with our automotive associations and our community in order to be better prepared for the future.

Tveten’s Auto Clinic acquired the prestigious Five-Star rating with Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department’s EnviroStars in 2002 and continues to maintain that highest rating annually.

We employ Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Technicians, including Master Certified Technicians, and we participate in the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence program.

Our Facility started with AAA in the 1950s with the roadside assistance program and is honored to continue that long relationship of trust and integrity.

Nicole, the front desk operator, is very personable and always works hard on my behalf to make sure we're being taking care of. I've been coming here exclusively for almost two years, and I've never had to go back because something wasn't done right. Love these people. The shop is also conveniently located in the Lakewood Town Center so I can do some errands if all I'm doing is an oil change.

I called ten shops. Tveten was the most detailed and also they said they'd give me a three year warranty which no one else offered they weren't the cheapest but they were not the most expensive I highly recommend them 😉
