Come see me, I run the place :)


This is what our customers say about us:


"We gave Carl our wish list and budget and were thrilled with the car he found us. Very tidy, he had a trailer ball fitted and it all came in on the lower side of the budget! We will definitely be seeing him again when it's time to upgrade our other car.
Going with Carl gave us reassurance we got a great car, he made it easy and is far more trustworthy and value for money than the car yards."

"Thanks Carl for our new Mitsubishi Outlander. We started our journey of looking for a new car by looking at the major car dealers. When we found Carl we were able to talk to him about our wish list and needs. It was great to be able to say what we wanted in features and colours. Carl was able to source the car and import it directly for us. The car is great and more than meets our needs. It is a great feeling to have our wish list granted, much better that buying a car off the lot and having to settle for something less. The car was in mint condition and is better than we could have imagined. In the short time that we have had it we have had a number of very positive comments on the car. If we need a second car in the future we would not hesitate to get Carl to import one for us again. It was stress free and an easy process for us. The communication during the process and after care was great. Carl was really easy to deal with and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Try the rest then try the best, (Carl at ultimate autos).
Thanks for everything Carl "

"After spending quite some time trudging around car yards searching for a new vehicle to replace my tired old one, I came across Carl MacLean at Ultimate Autos. I had met a large number of salespeople – some great, others not so. It was refreshing to meet with someone who genuinely seemed interested in helping to provide me with the car that I wanted and at a very competitive price. I have now purchased a top quality Japanese-import vehicle that has low-ish mileage and is in fabulous condition – and for a price that was even better than higher-mileage vehicles than I had previously considered. Carl’s communication and follow-up through-out has been very good. He helped make the process as simple as possible, provided key information that I needed, listened to me and sorted the changeover at a very reasonable price.

I would whole-heartedly recommend Carl and Ultimate Autos to anyone looking to purchase a very tidy and reliable new vehicle. Don’t do what I did (taking many hours to trawl through the other yards); go directly to Ultimate Autos. Carl is trustworthy, knowledgeable and wants to get you into the car that you are looking for. And his prices are better than you’ll find elsewhere. Thanks Carl for all your help – I love my new vehicle! "

"Carl, a belated thankyou for the Toyota Vitz transaction you organised, the other half can not keep out of it, she absolutely loves it and whilst the timing went a little astray with her birthday it was a very happy ending with yours truly scoring considerable brownie points, thanks again for your patience, we're delighted with the car and wouldn't hesitate recommending your services to others.

Thanks Again, Merry Xmas to you and yours"

   — Mike and Judith Kindon



"I bought the most incredible car within five minutes, Carl wasn't even there at the time but he made sure everything was going right, wanted and did deliver the car to my totally satisfaction!

So, thank you to Carl and his team, can only say I would buy again through your company!

Your service and aftercare is great, and I always like to come in for a coffee."

"We were looking for a car and started our search in Dunedin. By chance we came across Ultimate Autos Direct on line. Having chosen a model here in Dunedin we liked we were amazed to see the saving we could make buying from Ultimate Autos Direct. So we called Carl and despite being a bit wary that the deal was to good to be true were pleased to say that the car was exactly as described if not better. We were picked up from the airport, all paperwork was in order and the car was as clean as new. So take my advice. If you are looking for a late model car in Dunedin then by all means find one you like, test drive it then get in touch with Ultimate Autos, 'Grab a seat' up there to save in our case thousands on the price here in Dunedin. This is not an advert and we are genuine customers who until this weekend didn't even know they existed! Thank you Carl we will be buying again in the future and we now know where to come!"

"Buying a car is a major decision. You would hate to be stuck with a car you're not entirely happy with. Thanks to Carl I have no regrets and I just love my new car! My kids love it, too! Carl helped me decide and get the type of car I needed and wanted. I appreciate that he didn't push me into buying anything I didn't like but just asked me several questions which made me think really hard and not give in to my whims of an expensive dream car. The service I got was superb and I wouldn't think twice about recommending friends to talk to Carl first before buying a car."

"Our family relocated to Christchurch New Zealand at the end of last year. One of our concerns was to find reliable and affordable vehicles for my wife and I. We had our wish list of what we wanted, but where do we start looking? The name of Carl MacLean was given to us by friends who have done business with his company before. I met with Carl and gave him my wish list. He showed me a couple of options and eventually sourced the exact vehicle that I wanted. A Toyota Hilux Surf 4x4 Diesel. I couldn't believe my luck! The perfect vehicle, in mint condition and a lovely colour too. My wife's wish list was a bit more complicated but she too was surprised when Carl sourced the perfect vehicle for her. She copied me with the colour to make our choices the perfect his and hers.

I have bought many vehicles in different countries in my life time, but I can easily say that the service I got from Carl at Ultimate Autos was the best I have ever had in the motor car industry. I will also recommend him and refer anybody to him who wants excellent service and honesty in a business transaction."

"I am writing this letter to tell you how grateful I am for your help with the purchase of my new Mitsubishi Galant Sedan.
This is not the first car I have purchased from you over the years. I would not feel confident purchasing a vehicle unseen as I did from you with anyone else in the industry.
I viewed the car on-line and after speaking with you about it I had no hesitation in agreeing to purchase it. I had the confidence to forward you full payment prior to me flying down from Nelson to collect and drive it home.
Purchasing vehicles can be a daunting task for us girls with a sea of choices, confusing descriptions, makes and models and pushy sales people who see us coming.
Thankyou Carl for your help your professionalism and understanding, I absolutely love the car and will look after it for a very long time."

"Hi Carl,
They say good things are worth waiting for and my BMW is all that.
You said, trust me, we will get you a great car, you were wrong you got me the best car!
The 323i runs, rides and handles better than I could have imagined, the presentation is immaculate and your personal delivery shows the pride you have in your cars.
I downloaded a copy of the User Manual and have worked out a few of the features this car offers.
A very big thank-you to you and the team for the selection of cars you provided, advice you offered and total service you have given me."
