About Us

Welcome to Cooper Cars

We are an Auckland-based dealership specialising in used European vehicles. We stock Volkswagen, Audi, BMW 1-series, 3-series, X1 and X3, Peugeot, Volvo and some Mercedes Benz.

We can trade any make and model of car or light commercial. 

Established in March 1980, on the corner of Cooper St, Grey Lynn, by brothers-in-law Mike Mapperson and Brian Sullivan, we are a family business. Our small stock level means that we are able to select each of our vehicles personally. 

After 34 years on Great North Road, Grey Lynn, in 2014 we moved to an under-cover site in Onehunga.

We offer New Zealand-new and cars imported from Japan. We focus on low-mileage, well-maintained cars which we believe provide the best value. All vehicles are fully serviced by specialist workshops prior to sale. We can provide comprehensive” AA” or “Mainstream” brands of mechanical breakdown warranties on most of our range – cars we have traded-in are sometimes excluded by age or kilometres. We are proud to have been appointed AA Warranty Accredited Dealers, recognising our commitment to providing good quality, well prepared cars. 

Our pre-sale preparation, in addition to the warranty cover available, means that you can buy with confidence. We value repeat customers, individuals and families who return several times to buy cars from us and some have been customers for over 20 years. Previous customers who now buy new cars for themselves, often bring their children for their first or early car purchases. 

We provide a friendly and relaxed environment, allowing our customers to select without pressure. However we are passionate about the cars we sell and we try to provide in-depth information to help you with your decision. 

We can assist with finance (HP or lease) usually through MARAC Finance Ltd. 

We look forward to serving you. 

Happy motoring. 
Mike and Brian
