What our clients say

What our clients say

Highly recommend Central Taranaki Automotive! Very professional and friendly. We were just travelling through when we had some engine problems. They sorted us out the next day with no problems at all and took us in to explain the issues in depth! Best mechanic I’ve been to! The lollies at the end were also appreciated.

Katie O’Reilly

Had an unfortunate incident with our Motorhome phoned Kevan and his team and they towed us back to the garage and undertook repairs and had us on the road again fully functional. Ever so grateful for the professionalism and willingness to drop everything else and help us out. Highly recommended business.

Fay Bint

I can highly recommend Central Taranaki Automotive. The service provided is exceptional. They go the extra mile and give honest and clear advice. Fast and reliable service and extremely reasonably priced. If you are in the area, don’t go anywhere else. You will not regret it.
