About Us

Family Owned & Operated Since 1985

Owners, Gary and Marie Pelletier

Gary and I met at six years old when my family moved next door to his. At the time, he was disappointed that I wasn't a boy. Sixteen years later we married and in 1985 we opened Hillside Automotive Center Inc. For 36 years we have proudly serviced and repaired the vehicles of our families, friends, neighbors, local businesses, commuters, and surrounding communities. We have dedicated ourselves to providing personal service and expert repairs. We know that your car is a big investment and our goal is to keep it running safe and dependable for as long as possible.

Hillside Automotive Center Inc serves Hartford and the Greater Hartford metro areas, including West Hartford, CT, Newington, CT, Wethersfield, CT, New Britain, CT, East Hartford, CT, and Bloomfield, CT. Our commitment to our clients is to give a high quality of service that builds long-standing relationships, to assure that your vehicle is dependable and in safe operating condition and to work with you to control vehicle costs.

Running our business with honesty and integrity is what has made us successful for so many years. We are a family owned business that takes pride in our work, customer satisfaction and commitment to excellence. We invite drivers in Hartford, CT and the surrounding areas to come experience the Hillside Difference!
