To Our Plaza Automotive Customers,

On February 18, 2017 Plaza, Automotive Center joined forces with Hillside Automotive Repair and moved over to their site at 24467 Hawthorne Blvd. Torrance, 90505. (at Newton, just south of Pacific Coast Highway) Our technicians, Eric and Julio, who have worked on your cars over the years have joined the Hillside team.  All our technical training and specializations obviously will continue at Hillside.  Our location on Western could not facilitate the type of growth, both physically and technologically, we expected and needed.  Hillside is twice the size, has double the staffing, and enhanced capacity to allow us to grow and to better serve you.


Hillside is a full service automotive center that shares our value system; service to our customers, our community and our families.  Dave and Zoie Carney, owners of Hillside have committed the last 32 years to building a great company.  The Carneys and my family have supported many of the same community organizations.  Dave in many ways has been a mentor to me.  We have spoken on panels together and have shared best practices.  I know Dave, Zoie, and our teams will take great care of you.

It has been one of my life’s greatest privileges to meet and serve you as customers and to some developing friendships that have extended beyond Plaza Automotive.  All of you have added meaning to my life as well as the lives of my family.  I have seen your children grow into adults, experienced the ups and downs of life with you, and have learned much from you; hopefully in some small way, we have returned such favors.  Thank you for this honor.

Working with Dave and Zoie and their staff our technicians will continue to provide you with great service, cutting edge maintenance and repairs, and continue our Prius quest.

Again, Dave and his staff are committed to providing you with great service and to making you part of their family.  You will love the kind caring attention you will receive and better yet, you will love Zoie’s famous cookies and baked goods!!
