MEDFORD, OR--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2013) - Lithia Motors, Inc. (NYSE: LAD) announced that it acquired Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek, California. The store adds $50 million in estimated annual revenues.

Bryan DeBoer, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are excited to add another Subaru store to the Lithia family. This store has the potential to be one of the largest Subaru stores in the nation, and is one of the most desirable locations for a brand that is underserved in a familiar larger market area.
