Upon returning to Spokane after serving in the military, John Hill, Sr. began his automotive career working for different shops. In 1984, he decided along with his wife, Marlene to go into business for himself and on March 14, 1984, Hill’s Automotive and Driveline opened its doors. The shop has been in the same location serving the Spokane community for the past 31 years.
Since their first day of business, they continue to be a family owned and run business with their focus being quality work where the customer is treated with honesty and respect.
Over the years, Hill’s Automotive has participated in community events such as Christmas Wish with KXLY, St. Paddy’s Day Parade and the Touch-A-Truck Event for Foster Children.
Whenever possible, Hill’s tries to support and purchase from other local and small businesses.
We look forward to continuing to serve the local community for many years to come.
John, at the age of 13, began at Hill’s Automotive helping his Dad on the weekends. When he turned 16, he was able to work part time there and then at 18 he began his full time career at the shop and became part owner. One of the best experiences of his working career was being able to work with his Dad at the shop and learn all that he could. Since 2004, he has had the responsibility of running all aspects of Hill’s Automotive and Driveline in the same manner that his Dad did when the shop opened in 1984.
John has over 25 years’ experience in the automotive field. In 1990, he obtained ASE certification and in 1995 obtained certification as an L1 and L2 Emissions Technician. One area that John is very experienced in is building, rebuilding and servicing drivelines.
He continues to expand his automotive knowledge with continuing education and keeping up with the latest technology in order to serve the customer better.
