KAAR (Kelvin Armstrong Auto Repairs) was established in 1994 on the Rosebank Peninsula, our reputation for excellent car servicing and repairs spread throughout West Auckland creating a demand beyond the 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.

From the beginning, our vision has been to provide a complete repair and servicing facility for all makes of car and small commercial vehicle, utilising best available technology and highly capable staff to deliver a high quality service at a commensurate cost. This commitment remains today. We maintain a strong desire to provide both product quality and customer service, and believe in customer satisfaction as the ultimate key to sustainable success.

KAAR is owned and operated by Kelvin & Karyn Armstrong. The needs of our customers come 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. Kelvin and Karyn personally put themselves in the public forum by attending, sponsoring and participating on business association boards giving back to the community.

KAAR has won the West Auckland Westpac business awards twice proving KAAR has a good business model.
