Autostation was founded in 2001 by Ken H Jung with the aim to provide the highest
quality low kilometer cars as possible and a friendly open customer service that
customers can trust and feel confident when purchasing a car.
Ken was born and raised in Korean and moved with his family to New Zealand in 1996
to start his new life as a Korean Kiwi.
In Korea Ken was in electronics and spent many years doing business in Japan fluently
speaking and reading Japanese. Ken’s ability to fluently speak and read Japanese
is key to the success of being able to constantly provide Autostation high quality
Ken has built up the company to now have over 250 quality cars all 100 percent owned
Ken also owns the yard and onsite workshops at 161 Target road, Glenfield on the
North Shore and employs 7 friendly and highly experienced staff.
WHAT MAKE AUTOSTATION CARS DIFFERENT ?
It’s common knowledge in Japanese society that purchasing cars over 70,000kms is
a risk. Due to the massive population in Japan cars will sit in congested traffic
in an idle stop. Modern engines can handle this up to around 70,000kms however history
has shown that beyond this point cars start to develop engine problems caused by
this type of driving. Therefore we stock low kilometer cars only. All Autostation
cars undergo an Odometer Check to verify the distant traveled is correct by AA.
Auction Grade 4 & above!
In Japan all cars selling at auction must state in clear writing on an Auction Check
Sheet all defects, problems and damage right down to the smallest scratches, dents
etc. Each car is given an Auction Grade.. Auction Grade 5 & above is equal to a
brand-new car and the condition quality lessens by point 5 down to 1. We only purchase
Auction Grade 4 cars and above and we are the only dealerships that offers an Open
Book Policy on Auction Check Sheets.
