What our customers say

As a family, we have been going to AA Lake Road for over 15 years and have always liked their service. Our children - now young adults - are now taking their own cars there as well as their partners' cars. Would highly recommend the team.

 — Tina, Hamilton

I have used the repair workshop over the last 2 years for Warrant of Fitness, service on my car and the odd mechanical repair. The service and expertise of the staff is excellent. The mechanics always explained clearly what the problem was, and what needed to be done to fix it. Great!

 — Chantal, New Plymouth

I always have confidence in AA Te Rapa because of the quality of the service received consistently, over many years.

 — William, Beerescourt

I have been to AA St Lukes quite a few times, and I keep taking the cars back there as I have received good service and a friendly atmosphere each time. To date anything that has been tended to on the cars has been a positive outcome, with no recurring issues once

 — Mrs P, Mount Albert

I have been using AA New Lynn for years to warrant, service and repair our vehicles. I have found them to be very professional, reliable, honest and friendly. If you need to wait in their waiting room, it is clean with the latest newspaper and mags and a great hot drinks machine! Thumbs up, New Lynn.
