A small, family-run business, it’s important to us that we always provide honest, quality customer service and technical expertise. We have a fun, close-knit team – which is why there is always plenty of laughing going on in the workshop!
“My daughter was told by her local workshop that her car would not pass WOF before work he estimated at hundreds of dollars was done – after Hillside Autos examined the vehicle, the real fault was quickly repaired for under $50 – the car is still humming over a year later. Peter is so honest – you can completely trust him. At some workshops the mechanics ogle young girls, my daughters and I find that at Hillside Autos they show respect. Our entire family are sold on Hillside – for me honesty and respect make the difference.”

“These guys are great! The best thing about them is they don’t tell you to do more work than necessary or fix a car that’s just not worth the money. They’re honest and you can trust them!”
“I have been using Pete & Glen at Hillside Automotive for many years now and every time am extremely happy with their professionalism and honesty when it comes to doing work on the cars. Rather than having an unnecessary surprise, if something looks like it is wearing down the guys will give you a warning so you can budget for the repairs. My new Honda FIT blew its gearbox just after Christmas 2010 and within days Pete had sourced and installed a new engine which has run smoothly ever since. I would not hesitate in recommending Hillside Automotive to my family and friends.”
“I just want to say a big thank you to all of you guys for the good and friendly service you deliver. I’ll definitely bring my car back to you for a service, WOF. I will highly recommend you to all my family and friends.”
“Automotive repair shops can be overwhelming places for women to deal with. Pete at Hillside Autos is honest, reliable and does a great job. Can’t ask for more than that!”
“Pete and his team have serviced all our cars (family and business) for the past 5 years and I have nothing but praise for the standard of workmanship, fair and reasonable pricing….and all round helpful attitude. He always goes out of his way to show ways we can save money (never compromising safety of course!) and I can highly recommend his company”.
“The best thing about these guys is that they will never tell you that you need something done unless you really do. You can absolutely trust them and they know what they‘re talking about. I wouldn‘t take my car anywhere else.”

“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that I have been VERY impressed with the level of service that I receive from Hillside Autos. I was using a local mechanic who was servicing our cars for about 6 years before you were recommended to me. My wife drives a reliable and trustworthy Toyota Camry, which we’ve had for nearly 10 years now and I’ve been driving a European car – the Saab 9-3 Aero. As you know, European cars can be temperamental and servicing them can be challenging as sourcing original parts can take time (and money!). In addition, diagnosing unusual faults can be frustrating and expensive. What has impressed me the most is the fact that you employ qualified mechanics who have extensive experience with this marque and even the most obscure issue has not become a road-block to a successful outcome! Your comprehensive network of contacts within the industry has meant that I can be handed off to the ‘expert’ when required, yet the quality of the workmanship is exemplary and the costs are always affordable. I never thought that I would leave my established mechanic, but I have to say that I am pleased to have made the switch. Now I have no hesitation to recommend you to all of my family and friends! Many thanks for the exceptional level of service that you offer me.”
“I have been taking my vehicle to Peter at Hillside Autos for approx. 8 years. He knows it better than I do. I’ve never had a breakdown, the car has given me no trouble, because he does preventive maintenance . His prices are good and he checks for brake shoes, windscreen wipers etc. and advises regarding future problems that could occur. He is thorough, quick and reliable. I sent everyone from Amstar Interiors, their utes, vans and all staff cars to Hillside Autos without any negative comeback from anyone. The staff have become like family.”
