Pine View Auto Group: Roots Began in 1970
The Pine View Auto Group’s first automobile dealership began doing business in August of 1970 in the small town of Woodbridge, Ontario. Much has changed over the past 49 plus years. Today the Pine View Auto Group is represented by 3 dealerships, Pine View Hyundai (Woodbridge), Airport Nissan (Brampton) and Pine View West Hyundai (Brampton).
In 1970 Dom Romeo then owner and founder of Pine View Pontiac Buick Sales Ltd, established his General Motors Dealership on the corner of Highway 7 and Kipling Ave. Dom started in the automobile business in 1949 as an auto mechanic at West York Chevrolet-Oldsmobile in the west end of Toronto.
As the area of Woodbridge continued to grow, so did Pine View Pontiac Buick. In 1985 and in 1989 Pine View completed two separate additions to its building. The dealership complex is almost 40,000 square feet and has employed as many as 80 plus people.
Over the years the Pine View Auto Group has become a family business with all 3 of Dom’s sons joining him in the business. Dom’s eldest son, Frank began working in the family business in 1978. Today Frank is President of Pine View Hyundai and Pine View West Hyundai. In 2003 Dom opened Airport Nissan, located at Airport Road and Queen Street East in Brampton. Dom’s youngest son Mark is the President and General Manager. In 2008, Frank’s son Michael joined the family business and works with his father Frank as General Sales Manager at Pine View Hyundai.
In the spring of 2009 the General Motors Corporation went through a major restructuring and the Pontiac Motor Division was eliminated from their automotive platform. 240 Pontiac Dealers across the country were terminated including Pine View Pontiac Buick. Dom and Frank quickly transitioned to an independent auto dealer and rolled over the company name to Pine View Auto Sales & Leasing Ltd.
In 2010 Pine View Auto Group was proud and excited to acquire Pfaff Hyundai in Woodbridge and relocate it to Hwy 7 and Weston Road. The name changed to Pine View Hyundai at this time. In the last several years Hyundai has matured into tier one manufacture. A quick glance at any model in the lineup will make you look twice.
The Romeo family is very proud of its employees and their accomplishments over the years. We are particularly proud to have received the Mayor’s Vaughan Corporate Community Award and to be a 5 time recipient of the General Motors Triple Crown Award recognizing the top 100 dealers in Canada for outstanding customer satisfaction and total retail sales. In 2016 Pine View Hyundai received the President’s Award of Merit and is a 4 time recipient of the Hyundai Certified Signature Award.
