What's Included

We won’t carry out any extra work without your approval

Formula One Autocentres offer a Master Service and a Short Service to meet the various needs of motorists.

We recommend that the Master Service is completed every 12,000 miles or every 12 months and the Short Service is completed every 6,000 miles or every 6 months.

Most car owners service their car every 12 months 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.

What people are saying about us...

  • Colleague recommended F1 , as being best for pricing for tyres. Your staff are trustworthy and provide good advice , and Chris was extremely helpful in sourcing a tyre for me , delivered to site within a few hours. Will continue to use F1 in future - On my last visit it was evident there were many repeat customers who were known to staff and were friendly.

  • Dealing with F1 autocentres was a really good experience from a customer point of view. Initially dealt with Shannon from pricing/stock. She was more than helpul. On the day of fitment I dealt with the guys at the Leeds branch, no faffing about or trying to sell any extras. Was told an hour for 4 tyres, was done in 45 mins. I'll definitley back with my other car when needed.
