It was a pleasure buying a car from Portage cars New Lynn. We were looked after by Sajan , a pleasant young man.He was polite and thoroughly professional. We never felt pressured to make a quick decision. I test drove 3 cars and finally bought one. I gladly recommend Portage cars New Lynn if you are looking for a vehicle. They have a wide range and while you are there ask for Sajan. He will look after you.
