New MTA website – helping to steer motorists


With an estimated 3.4 million licensed motor vehicles in New Zealand, there’s no denying that we are a nation of motoring enthusiasts.

That is why the Motor Trade Association (MTA) has revamped and relaunched its website with a focus on providing motorists with hints and tips on everything related to motoring, including how to stay safe on the road. The ‘On the road' section has all sorts of tips for motorists, from a women's guide to checking cars, to how to lower fuel costs, and a comprehensive tyre checklist amongst others.

Communications Manager Ana Zandi said a key focus had been on improving usability, and refreshing the website to provide motorists with important motoring tips.

"The launch of our new website and new motorist information hub ‘On the Road' is an exciting step in helping motorists not only care for their car but to also keep them safe on our roads. We receive a lot of information and advice from our members on how motorists should care for their vehicles and we think it's important to pass this expert knowledge on to them."

"We have simplified the navigation to make it quicker and easier for users to find the information they are looking for, and we have also gone for a fresher cleaner look and redesigned the site to better reflect what MTA represents today."

The new look website is filled with automotive information and has easier navigation and an improved search function. Visitors to the site can purchase popular MTA products like MTA Gift Vouchers and MTA Gift Cards. Users can also find an MTA member (service station, dealer or repairer) in their local area to carry out repairs, warrant of fitness inspections, and a range of automotive services.

MTA also offers a free mediation service for the motoring public and its members. Experts in the fields of sales, servicing and repairs can give advice on any dispute or problem that arises. This service is accessible through the MTA website.
