Buying a new car

I had searched from near to far
And why? To buy a new car
Then a friend got in touch with me by phone
Told me they had a Corolla at a place called CARZONE

I set off to see it before it started to get dark
After a detour... I was greeted by a car dealer called MARK
Mark said, “This car drives like a breeze”
Then handed over to Rita a set of car keys

So Sue and Rita went for a drive
Hoping they wouldn't be long as Mark usually went home by five
Mark was patient, helpful and explained the cars history to us
However he should realize that “girlie” buyers like to fuss

Rita said, “I like it but I want it checked out -
I have to know its A Okay without a shred of doubt”
So she arranged to take the car for a test
Then she told Mark out of those she’d seen his was the best

To please a female buyer is difficult enough
So Mark found Rita when bargaining was also pretty tough
The car check found there were some things Rita wanted fixed
Mark looked like a man of integrity who wouldn't pull any tricks

So finally a deal was done
The car even got approval from Rita’s son
So Rita drove her new car back to her home out West,
Finding Mark at CARZONE was definitely the best.

My wife Maree and I purchased two vehicles from Mark Manihera at CarZone. We are very pleased to write this, not only to say the service was above and beyond the usual expected from the Car Industry (which it certainly was!), but also to add a brief note to say thank you for making the process so easy for us.

It is always with a degree of hesitation that I walk onto a car yard, and to all who read this - relax, you’re in very, very capable hands...Mark & Co. are more concerned with YOUR needs and expectations than ‘the need to shift another car’ and they clearly place their client first.

I would encourage anyone seeking to purchase a motor vehicle to see Mark and the team FIRST and let them impress you to the same degree as I have been.

I am more than satisfied, and willing to discuss any item contained here in person or on the telephone.

Mark and the crew...Keep up the great work.

Thank you very much for your annual donation of $500.00 worth of MTA fuel vouchers to be used to assist with the running of the Hibiscus Coast Blue Light van.

Community support like yours is greatly appreciated as it increased the level of services that Hibiscus Coast Blue Light can provide to your youth. We believe that these services can increase the profile of youth in our community and can encourage positive ongoing relationships between young people, Police and the community.

Thank you also to your sister company Auto Tech Whangaparaoa for its support concerning the annual Warrant of Fitness and Oil & Filter change of the Blue Light van.

Once again, thank you for your support.

A few weeks ago I read a letter in your paper from a very satisfied customer of CarZone Wholesale. They had met the cost of some repair job which was outside the warranty on the car they had sold.
I, too, have had a similar experience. An unexpected failure of the computer-controlled airflow meter on my car after 12 months was not covered by the insurance policy I had taken out on the car when I bought it from them. But CarZone, on the spot, offered to pay half the cost of the replacement unit without even being asked to do so.
Isn’t it great that we have an honest, customer-concerned car dealer in our area?

This is an open letter to the general public and the team at CarZone Wholesale Whangaparaoa.
Thank you for going that extra mile and giving us 100% satisfaction in our recent purchase of a second hand vehicle. Long may you prosper.

Thank you for your after sales concern and the tokens of appreciation for our custom. We are delighted with the car and look forward to many hours of happy and trouble free motoring.

We found CarZone a very professional and efficient firm to deal with and had not appreciated how simple the purchase of a car can be when the transaction is completed by competent staff.

The expected chasing of paper work did not materialise and was taken out of our hands by our staff who promptly dealt with all matters from Registration, Insurance and Finance, with, what seem to us, a matter of a few hours.

Thank you for all your efforts in making certain that the purchase of a car did not involve the many problems we have come to expect at such times
