I have been a client of John Edwards Motors for 19 years. I use them as I know I will get a honest & professional service of my vehicles.

I have always found their pricing very fair & being a single woman I can trust that I am not 'being taken for a ride' & being taken advantage of.

They are very pleasant to deal with & I have always found they complete the work in the time frame given.

The loan car is a big plus also.

I had the pleasure of meeting Roger and Caron Edwards in a professional capacity in 1999, when Roger was maintaining and enhancing my Ford Sierra RS Cosworth 3 door. Because of Roger’s absolute honesty, integrity and being a pleasure to deal with, any vehicle that I had to finance the repair for one of my clients, irrelevant of location in New Zealand, I would have it transported to John Edwards Motors. This was due to the amount of trust that I had in getting the job done properly first time and at the best possible price.

Our next adventure was turning a 1973 Ford Falcon XA Coupe (32000 original miles and paint) into a race car. Because of Roger’s outstanding knowledge, the car over the years has evolved to an exceptionally fast and reliable car. 1.07s around Pukekohe Park Raceway (with my son Jason behind the wheel). One thing that cracks me up is Roger is so well read and knows so much about cars and engines (performance and normal) I keep on thinking “how can he know all that?” but he does, it just shows that he is truly passionate about what he does.

Our relationship has now turned in to one of true friendship, with many a moment spent talking over the odd amber gold, I now have the pleasure in helping Roger at race meetings when he races in karting, returning the favour for all the times that he has helped Jason and I.

We go through life’s journey and rarely meet a person of Roger’s moral stature, honesty, integrity and his work ethics are second to none, plus being a good dude to boot.

I have used John Edwards Motors for all maintenance work on my vehicles and horse float for the last fifteen years. They have always completed all work required at a reasonable price and quick timeframe. I appreciate the fact they have always estimated costs before proceeding, gone through all options available and have completed the work to an excellent standard.

As a single woman, I have had “bad experiences” with less reputable businesses, and can totally recommend John Edwards Motors to anyone that wants trustworthy service, competitive rates and great follow up.

Kind regards

Kids in Cars would like to thank the staff and crew from John Edwards Motors Limited for the fantastic service and work carried out on our ride car.

When KIC purchased this car, the engine in her was not the best, so a good friend of mine, Robert Van Gisbergen, introduced me to Roger and Caron from John Edwards Motors.

Roger and Caron embraced this project of ours, and we told them what KIC was all about, and said to them that we don’t have very deep pockets!!!!!

The work that Roger and the team carried out on the KIC GTP was extensive, as the car had been abused by its last owners, and to make matters worse, she had been locked away in a shed somewhere for about 4 years, the motor was not the best and we thought the worst…

John Andrew Ford & Mazda also came to KIC’s aid, as they have supported KIC for many years now, with all the parts that we need to get her back up and running.

KIC has had the car now for around two years, and I can tell you that the motor is as strong as an OX!!! – What a job that the crew has done.

The KIC GTP is a very important part of our two charity events every year, to which we take some very special children for rides in her, as she is a one-of-a-kind four seater race car….and without the extensive works carried out by Roger and his staff, we would not be able to do what we do !!!!

KIC has no doubt in our minds that we can highly recommend any work done by John Edwards Motors Limited to be of the highest standards and professionally run company.

We wish them all the best and will continue our relationship with them now and in the future
