Mark Hubble officially opened TSL Automotive Specialists in Tacoma in September of 2023. A graduate from the Toyota Professional Automotive Program, and professional Toyota technician since 2011, Mark spent more than a decade in Toyota dealerships, where he grew tired of “corporate structure and dealership politics.”

“I saw that Toyota owners intentionally purchase a Toyota because they want to own a Toyota and they want a specific lifestyle that involves a reliable vehicle that is fun to own, modify, and has the market’s best resale value. Toyota owners strive for the best,” Mark notes. “I had looked all over Pierce County (Tacoma and surrounding areas) and found the only way to have a Toyota or Lexus vehicle serviced was going to the dealership or one of those cut-rate big-box chain stores that work on all makes and models. Living in Tacoma, I knew there was a demand for an independent Toyota specialist.”


TSL Automotive Specialists proudly offers a dealership alternative when it comes to diagnosing, repairing and maintaining your Toyota or Lexus and offers OEM Toyota parts and parts sourced directly from OE suppliers like AISIN, Bando, Mitsuboshi and Denso. Mark prides himself as an ASE Master technician, former professional Toyota technician, and above all a Toyota enthusiast who will ensure his customers’ vehicles will be given the highest level of care.

“When it comes to Toyota specialists, there is no competition for TSL Automotive Specialists in Tacoma — other than the over-priced dealership,” Mark affirms. “We’re so proud to offer the highest standard of replacement parts, and we never use low-quality aftermarket replacement parts." Not only does Mark own TSL, but he is proud to work on-site daily and directly communicate with his customers, set appointments, order parts and repair his clients’ vehicles! He goes on to say, “Having your vehicle serviced at TSL allows the customer to build a strong, trustworthy relationship with me. I also allow customers to come into the shop and take a look at what goes on behind the scenes during the repair process.”

When asked what he finds most rewarding about the work he does serving his clients, Mark responds, “Without a doubt, the most rewarding thing about being a Toyota specialist is connecting with the customers who are looking for a technician / shop who loves their Toyota as much as they do.”Mark is grateful for this business he has built, the clients he serves, and getting to share life here in Tacoma with his partner Tracey and two children. For those Toyota, Lexus and Scion owners looking for someone who is as passionate as they are about caring for and maintaining their vehicles, look no further than Mark Hubble and TSL Automotive Specialists in Tacoma.
