Hermosa Automotive History

Established in 1997

I established Hermosa Automotive after a vigorous search for the perfect location. Pacific Coast Highway in Hermosa Beach needed a professional, one-stop repair facility that featured reasonable prices and superior customer service. We started out offering smog inspection and general auto repair.

Cars and auto repair have changed over the years. Our technicians regularly attend factory-training courses to keep us up-to-date with the newest methods of auto repair. I built the company on the principles of hard work, fast service and the most current methods of auto repair to ensure your vehicle receives the highest level of care.

In 2007 our business expanded to a second location in Torrance. Hermosa Automotive II enables us to reach a wider geographic area and service customers in a wider variety of neighborhoods. Customers can choose the location that’s more convenient and receive the same quality care at either facility.

The best way to avoid many break-downs is to keep up with your routine maintenance.


Some shops shy away from new technology. We learned how to fix hybrids before most people had ever seen one.


We make old cars new again.

foreign and domestic

If the DMV will let you put license plates on it, we can fix it.

smog station

20+ Years Experience

Our Team

My name is Ronald Martin. My career as an auto repair professional has been marked by a desire to continue perfecting my skills and stay one step ahead of automotive trends and technology. Every year I attend multiple training courses to ensure I’m up-to-date on the ever-changing world of automotive care.


I have more than 25 years of professional experience. My partner Robert Borrato and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to build Hermosa Automotive into the South Bay’s most prestigious diagnostic and repair facility. Our two locations in Hermosa Beach and Torrance serve a wide community in the South Bay and beyond.


I value hard work and focus on customer service. It’s important for customers of Hermosa Automotive to leave our facilities knowing their cars received expert repairs and they are satisfied with the entire experience.
