“DISGUSTING AWFUL SERVICE ”

Written on: 13/07/2021 by Sydneyp187 (1 review written)

Absolutely disgusted with my service, i got charged a brand new driveshaft and the cv boot joint got split and botched up and the manager was informed about it and the staff member knew as they split it, so instead of telling me the problem i got charged 3 hours of service and it only took less than 1 hour and most of all not get informed about the boched up cv boot that is now not new as its been split, also i saw the same staff member getting handed a bag behind the store away from cameras in… Read Full Review

“Life’s put at risk @Harlow Centre”

Written on: 10/07/2021 by Keenanf279 (1 review written)

The Harlow centre replaced the wrong tyre and refused to rectify the situation. They clearly failed to check the other tyres on the vehicle what you would expect, which resulted in life’s being put at risk. There is training issues and or lack of qualified fitters, meaning important safety measures are not being adhered to. They claim to be a family run business and care about their customers, but it is evident they could not care less and do not put safety first… Read Full Review

“Cambridge Center Superb! ”

Written on: 08/06/2021 by Hallj11 (1 review written)

The guy I dealt with and the team on Histon Rd in Cambridge were absolutely brilliant. Got me, the girlfriend and kids out of a major pickle by sourcing and fitting a new tyre within 45 minutes - all after I turned up un-announced. And they were considerably cheaper than the alternatives too - all of whom would have needed 24 hours anyway. Use these guys! … Read Full Review

“Excellent service at Telford formula one ”

Written on: 13/02/2021 by Rob.davies (1 review written)

Excellent service at the Telford branch. My wife is a district nurse and had a puncher which put her off the road. These guys stayed over late on a Saturday until she could get there, so friendly and helpful. They literally got her back on the road again when no one else could. Thank's again, really appreciated… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/01/2021 by Absolutelyshockingservice (1 review written)

I place my order on the 14th for fitting the following day on the 15th. As stated I called beforehand on the 15th and was told there was only one of my tyres in stock and another delivery was due late that afternoon. I called in e afternoon and was then told should be by Saturday the following day. I then called Saturday and was told Monday and 2 more tyres would be ordered.

“If I could give zero stars I would ”

Written on: 08/10/2020

If I could do zero stars I would. If you want your car to come out with more problems than what it went in with (and spend a fortune in the process) by all means use the Chatham F1 garage. We spent about £1,100 at this garage (which was initially only suppose to be an MOT and service) for them to return the vehicle with a loose wheel bearing (something that was not an issue before). After paying another £400 to have that fixed, the vehicle was then returned to us with faulty breaks which was… Read Full Review

“Tyres issues”

Written on: 16/07/2020 by Barryre351 (1 review written)

Ordered tyres and waited 1,5 for fitting and delivery. After 8 months tyres started showing cracks, F1 Norwich was holding tyres for 3 months then decided to tell us that if we want warranty to start we have to buy new once first then they will send tyres for warranty. Absolutely horrible service, manager is saying one thing over the phone then changing version when you talk to him. Avoid… Read Full Review

“Fitted wrong tyres”

Written on: 25/06/2020 by JanaeCasey (1 review written)

Purchased x4 Michelin Pilot 4s tyres. After fitting did a walk around check of the car and noticed the front were not the tyres I had ordered. Tyres had to be removed and my originals refitted until the correct tyres could be delivered. Was given £20 compensation for my troubles which when considering I'd spent over £750 with them was very poor… Read Full Review

“NHS worker in desperate need!!!”

Written on: 06/05/2020

Whilst driving home I had a little issue with my vehicle,so I pulled into Formula one in Kidderminster. The person I dealt with was very professional, polite and courteous and a credit to the customer service profession. Winston the mechanic was also professional,polite and courteous. He checked my vehicle and made it safe for me to continue my journey home a very experienced mechanic. I experienced excellent service and can't thank them both enough… Read Full Review

“Took my car to local branch to have a front road...”

Written on: 21/02/2020 by MarkusNicholson483 (1 review written)

Took my car to local branch to have a front road spring changed £143 including labour. Just so you are aware they use Eurocarparts in bletchley as they are a mile up the road. So parts are cheap. They then said that the drop link was impossible to get off to complete the job so had to smash it off. Cost of this was £23.49 BEFORE discount. Cost to me was £41.00 + vat they then said your top mount has gone so that was a further £82.00 which was made up of a bearing @ £6.79 and the mount… Read Full Review

“Avoid at any cost”

Written on: 04/01/2020 by zbFry342 (1 review written)

Don't go here, they quote you for work that is not necessary and will also tell you that you cannot drive the car away as it would be illegal. If you get quoted for work at F1, don't trust them, always get a second opinion from another garage. Quotes for extra work will be large and unexpected... You thought you had a good car, well think again after you have been to F1, it will not be any good following their report. I like the cheap MoT and Service deals advertised by F1, but... They do the… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2019 by Sheridan72 (1 review written)

I thought the days when female car owner had to ask a male relative to take their car to the garage, to avoid being over-charged was over. I have used formula 1 autocentre on several occasions over the years without issues. There appear to be new/different staff at my last (and final ) visit. I took my car in for a MOT, (Lye branch) I was told that it failed on the brakes and was quoted a high price for the repair. I instead arranged to take the car in to the dealership to complete the repair… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS ”

Written on: 04/11/2019 by AndrewDutton1 (1 review written)

AVOID F1 AUTOCENTRES On October 13th, I took my new Volkswagen to F1 Autocentes in Leeds for 4 new tyres changing, and my alignment doing. My car is lowered, and they were fully aware that my car was too low to go on the ramp without removing my front splitter. They removed the front splitter, and the tyres were installed, and tracking done. The manager of the Leeds branch then said if you have any issues, bring it back. The alignment was completely out, so I called, and re booked for the… Read Full Review
