Founded in 1910, the Motor Traders' Association of New South Wales (MTA NSW) is an employers Association and registered training organisation, dedicated to representing business owners and business principals in the NSW automotive industry.

Our aim is to help the motor industry. We achieve this by assisting our members in the daily running of their businesses, as well as lobbying governing bodies to ensure a long and viable automotive industry in NSW. We regularly offer advice on matters affecting the industry, and are proud to be the principal party and a leader in industrial relations issues affecting the retail motor industry.

The MTA NSW Code of Ethics is the foundation of our members' high level of public credibility. It is a public commitment that MTA members will go about their business professionally and fairly.

Vehicle owners should look for the MTA NSW logo before choosing a business from which they may purchase either a new or used motor vehicle, have a motor vehicle serviced, repaired or deal with automotive suppliers and businesses. 

For hints and tips regarding the purchase of buying a new or used car, visit Buying a New Car or Buying a Used Car.
