Some kind words from our customers

“Truly grateful”

This business by far is the best business I’ve ever come across I was so lucky when I googled Central Automotive Stratford the Thursday before Easter weekend mins before the business closed. The owner Kevan answered he said sure come in. Fortunately, Kevan diagnosed my car radiator problem and charged me a very fair price and I drove of a completely satisfied customer Before visiting Kevan and his crew I had problems with my car for almost a year. I really thought I’d be calling the wreckers to collect my car for auto salvage on this occasion. But thanks to the toughness and expertise of Kevan!! My car was saved and it’s running perfectly with no radiator leakage at all. Huge thank you to this business for going the extra mile to satisfy your customer. I am truly grateful. Thank you Central Taranaki Automotive.

“Highly recommend”

5 / 5

Fantastic service from start to finish, placed call to them and while they investigated the details, I had a reply within 15min about when they can do job and quoted price. Job was done as requested but the attention to detail and the extra things they did made it even more satisfying even washing my car and lollies waiting on the car seat at collection, those little things will make me continue to use them as they obviously care about me as a customer.

“Very professional”

5 / 5

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.

“Outstanding Work”

5 / 5

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.

“Really friendly”

Awesome service. I got there with a tyre problem, and they were really friendly, professional, quick and all good you just want to form your service. One of the best services I was in New Zealand. Definitely would go back.

“100% recommend”

5 / 5

Wow what service! 100% recommend and would make my regular if I didn’t live in Wellington! Kevan and the team went out of their way (including pulling one of their old auto electricians out of retirement!) to get us back on the road as we were travelling through. We had a scary moment in the middle of the forgotten highway with no phone service where the starter motor solenoid wouldn’t engage, we stayed up on the side of Taranaki that night and a similar thing happened so the next morning we zipped into town to see if we could get it sorted before moving on any further, Kevan and the team were super accommodating and got us back on the road in hours with great service and a great price too! We were able to head back up the mountain and still get all the hiking in we had planned for the day!
