Formula One Autocentres reviews

What people are saying about us...

Jul 1, 2016

The free summer health check and wheel alignment check were excellent options that I took up. A tyre warranty where any punctures are repaired or the tyre replaced during its normal working life would be something I would seriously consider. Chichester

I use Formula 1 for all my motoring needs. I find the staff to be courteous and helpful and the opening hours are very convenient. I have confidence that I am not being cheated. Crewe

Find out which service is right for you with our simple car servicing checklist.

Most car owners service their car every year or 12,000 miles - whichever comes sooner. Servicing proactively maintains your car, reducing the risk of a breakdown. Even if it is irregular, servicing can help maintain your car's value.

All Formula One Autocentres' servicing is carried out by fully trained technicians using only parts that match the quality of the manufacturer's original equipment. We'll Stamp your service logbook too, to ensure that your vehicle's service history is maintained.
