John McGrath Auto Group

We are a trusted name in the motor industry

John McGrath Auto Group has been established for a long time in Canberra. We are reliable, well established, reputable, not “fly by night” and twice as better together. We aim to be more than just your motor vehicle dealer. With years of experience, we devote as much energy into giving you the best range of after sales services and facilities as we do to secure your business.

We build an ongoing rapport with our customers

We have long standing personal relationships with our customers. Many of our customers are repeat and referral customers. Many come to us through our customers and employees, who refer their friends, family, clients and colleagues to us because they know that the customers will be very satisfied with the purchasing process. Our relationship with our customers extends beyond the sales process and into the ownership process where we provide service, parts and advice as necessary.

We're a 'one stop' shop

We have sales, service, parts, finance and car care and accessories departments. There is no need for our customers to go outside our Dealerships as we can meet all their needs in the vehicle purchasing process in one place.

We are "low-pressure" salespeople, from wide and varied backgrounds

We know that our customers are making an important and expensive decision. We provide information, assistance and support in that purchasing decision without being overbearing or pushy. We aim to make everyone feel comfortable with their purchase experience.

We strive to make sure that our customers are 'very satisfied' customers

We want our customers to find the experiences of purchasing a vehicle, finance and accessories from us and servicing that vehicle with us to be easy, comfortable and satisfying. All our staff recognise their part in ensuring our customers’ satisfaction and work toward achieving that goal.


Specialty Vehicles – it’s in our name, our range of vehicles are special driving machines.

General Motors Specialty Vehicles – GMSV for short – is a newly launched General Motors venture operating within Australia and New Zealand. At GMSV, we hand-pick only the most iconic GM vehicles to bring to our customers who are looking to own something truly special.

A passion for compelling products

Our passion is more of an obsession. Our vehicles have icon status around the globe and are guaranteed to turn heads, and we will stop at nothing to bring them to our customers. In the case of Corvette, we are able to source it already built in right-hand drive, but we get just as excited about our GM factory-standard local right-hand drive conversion for vehicles like the Chevrolet Silverado.

How we make it possible

Our trusted partner Walkinshaw Group is synonymous with success both on and off the track. Not many people know, but they have been a long-term affiliate of GM for the past 30 years.

Walkinshaw’s victories in motorsports come from its disciplined approach to planning, preparation and industry excellence, cementing its reputation as one of the most respected aftermarket and conversion operators in Australia.
