Mechanics Pride Tire & Automotive has been serving the Spokane, WA community for the past 27 years. The shop was started by Michael Federico, who has 39 years of experience in the automotive industry. As a kid, Michael started working on cars with his father and found he was excited about the mechanics of automobiles. As he grew up, he realized fixing cars was what he wanted to do for a living. He worked his way up in the mechanical field, finding he had a talent with people and sales, and as time went on he realized he was better at working with people rather than on the cars themselves. Michael became a manager very quickly at every job.
After many years of working for someone else and not liking what he saw, he decided to open his own business so he could provide better customer service and build a good solid foundation for his family. And so Mechanics Pride Tire & Automotive was born.
Mechanics Pride Tire & Automotive is a full-service facility, offering everything from tune-ups to A/C repair, tire and custom wheels sales to fuel injections. For your convenience, we provide a complimentary shuttle service to your home or office and will even pick you up when your car is done. We want to make your experience with us one that is stress- free and memorable for the right reasons.
We ensure that our Spokane auto mechanics stay up to date with the latest technology on all automobiles, as the industry is ever changing.
