KAAR – Quality Car Repairs and Service for 20 Years

In April 1994, KAAR opened in Rosebank Road, Avondale. We quickly established ourselves as a company with a reputation for quality car repairs and serving. From the beginning, our aim has been to be customer-focussed offering the best advice and automotive service possible.

Our reputation for excellent car servicing and repairs spread throughout West Auckland creating a demand beyond the Avondale Peninsula and, in 2011, KAAR Henderson opened in Waipareira Ave, Henderson. A year later we were approached by Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand (MMNZ) and KAAR Mitsubishi was born. West Auckland’s only Mitsubishi servicing centre, KAAR Mitsubishi West Auckland operates from 14 Te Pai Place, Henderson.

West Auckland’s only Mitsubishi Authorised Parts and Service Centre

We are West Auckland’s only Mitsubishi authorised parts and service centre. We can supply and fit new Mitsubishi parts, second-hand Mitsubishi parts, and supply and fit genuine Mitsubishi accessories. Because we are West Auckland’s Mitsubishi specialists we can offer the best advice for your vehicle servicing needs including knowing when a second-hand or aftermarket part can be used, or when only a genuine new part will do.

Family Owned and Operated

KAAR is owned and operated by Kelvin & Karyn Armstrong. We operate our automotive business with a desire to put the needs of our customers first. We know maintaining a vehicle can be expensive and that many of our customers know very little about how a car motor works. That’s why we pride ourselves on giving good and honest advice, and taking our customer’s budget and car value into account.

The KAAR Team – Trained and Experienced Auto-technicians

At KAAR we have ten auto technicians. This mixture of Mitsubishi trained technicians, mechanics, auto electricians, and apprentices means we are able to exceed most your vehicle maintenance requirements. All KAAR team members are part of a five-year training programme where they are consistently evaluated and encouraged to be the very best they can.

When you bring your car, van, 4×4 or light truck for servicing at KAAR, the responsibility to repair your vehicle will be given to one of our team members who will oversee the job. That means you, the vehicle owner, have the opportunity to discuss your vehicle repair requirements directly with the technician working on your car. They will be happy to answer any questions you have about your car repair or general vehicle maintenance.

KAAR Vehicle Technology

Industry training partners, in-house training and committed suppliers ensure the KAAR Team is kept right up to date with the latest in vehicle maintenance new technology.

When it comes to equipment, KAAR has some of the latest vehicle diagnostic tools available, including: Mitsubishi Motors specialist diagnostic equipment, multiple scanners, multi-channel oscilloscopes, and much more.

In 2014, as the result of popular demand, KAAR Mitsubishi established, KAAR Mitsubishi Mobile; a fleet of mobile vehicle repair and servicing workshops.  That means, you can now recieve the same calibre service you’ve come to expect from our workshop technicians at your workplace or home.
