What does an AA Preferred Dealer offer?

AA Odometer Verified

We check all available service records and make sure the condition of the vehicle is consistent with the reading. An AA Odometer Verified window sticker, provides assurance of an accurate odometer reading.

AA Entry Compliance

Our AA Entry Compliance inspectors carry out regulatory vehicle inspections at AA Inspection Centres and third party business partner sites on used imports. Our vehicle inspections are carried out to meet the quality standards of NZAA and regulatory requirements of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. 

These service providers may also provide the following products: Warrant of Fitness (WoF) and Certificate of Fitness (CoF), for light motor vehicles and motorcycles.

AA Appraised Used Cars

An AA Appraised used car has received a 43 point mechanical check by the AA, which focuses on mechanical and safety aspects of the car and gives an overall evaluation of the vehicle.

The AA Appraised sticker is presented on the inside of the vehicle windscreen, providing peace of mind for customers that they can have the confidence of driving a used car that has had an AA Appraisal. Valid for 3 months from the date of appraisal or 500km, whichever occurs first.
