Great service. car definitely smells better now. Didn't realise the offending odour was from the air conditioning unit until it became particularly offensive, wet dog/socks odour. Thank you for fixing this for me ! , Mansfield

Nov 14, 2014

My first visit to F1 was for Tyres. The service was very good and the price was very competitive. I have since returned to have my car MOT'd and again was extremely satisfied with the service I received. I had used the same local garage for 7 or 8 years but had felt recently that their customer service was not as good as it had been and the service I received at F1 was much better. Which is why I would definitely return. Tracey , Basingstoke

As usual, excellent service, I have been using the Hedge End centre for a couple of years and they have always been very helpful. Prices are good and they are honest in their approach.

Oct 28, 2014

This was my second visit to F1, having had a couple of tyres replaced 3 months ago, at which time they gave me an advisory notice regarding my brake pads/discs. Therefore, as this visit was for an MOT, I fully expected to be told that the car had failed and needed work on the brakes but the car passed, with an advisory note that the brake pads will probably need changing soon. I had read previous comments saying that they always find something to add to the bill, so what looks cheap will end up costing you more BUT I now know different and I will certainly return to F1 for my brake pads to be replaced and indeed for any other work that I need doing on the 3 cars in my household. I need to say that the staff are very professional and polite, even smiling and joking with you on a Sunday, when most people are enjoying the weekend off - well done to all for giving a great service at great prices. Mark , Doncaster

Oct 31, 2014

I have to say I was most impressed with the whole F1 Autocentre experience, I have already recommended you to a college who needs new tyres. The staff in Shrewbury were very friendly and helpful, the waiting area was lovely, I'm used to dirty tiny waiting areas at your competitors - never again! I feel you redefine the expected standard when getting new tyres, not only were you cheapest but the experience was actually enjoyable rather than a chore. Many thanks , Shrewsbury

Why check your tyre pressure?

As a result of rubber's natural permeability, your tyres could be losing air pressure at a rate of up to two pounds each month (often more in warmer weather conditions).

For this reason, Formula One Autocentres recommend that you check your tyres as regularly as possible - ideally every couple of weeks.

Find your vehicle's correct tyre pressure here…

Correctly inflated tyres - the benefits:

1. Safety - Having the correct tyre pressure enhances the safety of your vehicle, improving not only its ability to hold the road, but also its braking efficiency. Under-inflated tyres are prone to overheat, whilst over-inflation can seriously affect the road handling of your vehicle.

2. Economy - Correct tyre pressure helps prolong the life of your tyres, which saves you money. Under-inflated tyres also have increased rolling resistance, raising the amount of fuel required to maintain a steady speed.

3. Environment - Maintaining the correct tyre pressure is helpful to the environment too. By reducing fuel consumption, you'll also be reducing your vehicle's CO2 emissions - and doing your bit to save our planet.
