I’ve used AAA a number of times in the past few years and they’ve always been fantastic. Great, friendly service and very reasonable prices. It’s kind of easy to miss their little shop right by the tram stop but they do have some eye catching signage that helps. I’ve even gotten same day service for small issues on more than one occasion and even once they were happy for me to come down 15 mins before closing time. Definitely recommend them.

Lovely staff, completed my roadworthy inspection the next day and for a reasonable price!

I was referred to AAA after another mechanic stuffed up a clutch replacement. Andrew was happy to help despite it being complex, and potentially risky to try to resolve an issue created by someone else. They even supplied a loan car. The car is back to feeling as good as new, and we've got a new mechanic to go to that we know cares and is excellent at what they do.

Good bloke, he did my RWC no problems. Would recommend to a friend.
00:08 18 Jul 22
Absolutely kind and friendly people, as a new driver who has no experience of fill the air into tyres, and fail to do that in the gas station. They not only help me fill all the air in free of charge, fast and efficient, but also teaches me how to do it next time in the gas station if I am far away. Thank you!!!If I need car service in the future I will definitely come here! 5/5 stars.

Andrew, you are so professional and friendly as you even answered my call on a public holiday Queen’s Birthday. You earned my respect for you!! Thank you!!

When my car broke down my usual mechanic rudely told me I had to wait a month for it to be seen! AAA automotive took a look at it within days and apologized for me even waiting that long! They then looked at it without charging me anything. Unfortunately the fix is too expensive for the car. But Andrew and co at AAA automotive were very professional and friendly
