“AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE! (Days Road, Bristol)”

Written on: 13/06/2015

Very unhelpful & extremely rude staff. They lure you into a cheap MOT & then quote work that doesn't even need doing for extortionate prices. Seems like they are on commission. I was made to feel guilty when I told the mechanic I was going to take the car elsewhere for a second opinion. He even told me my car was unsafe which was not even true & if I had to bring the car back it might fail. Think he was expecting me to tell him to put the car back on the ramps & go ahead with the work. Got the… Read Full Review

“Worst Garage I've Ever Used”

Written on: 19/09/2013

When I moved to Bristol several years ago I was looking for a new car garage that I could trust and that was near to where I lived. It's a big shame that this was the garage I picked, as they're nothing more than *** artists . From the outside they look very professional and lure you in with promises of good service and low prices. This really isn't the case. I originally took my car to the council for the MOT, and F1 for repairs. When they called me back they alerted me that my whole… Read Full Review

“rubbish”

Written on: 03/08/2013 by bobbyball (1 review written)

I had twice MOT test in this "garage". That place should be re-named for rip off autocentre. First time My car fail on some brakes issues- they told me that I need to replace brake caliper. But the funniest is that staff member (that from MOT somar or sumar) said when he took apart brakes he cannot put back caliper bolt after removal(which is riddicolous because you could put it back) and charged me for a replace 220 pounds. I though ok done. Year after on MOT test again fail on the same thing… Read Full Review

“Best break centre in Bristol”

Written on: 10/04/2013

I have visited the  Bristol (Days Rd) branch of Formular One Autocentres a few times now and I can honestly say I can't fault them. I have had the breaks sorted on my VW Polo.  Both times I' ve been in the week they have managed to look at it straight away. The staff who I dealt with were really friendly and explained everything without being condescending. I feel extremely safe going there as a girl on my own and that they're not going to rip me off. They even carried out some small repairs… Read Full Review

“Avoid these cowboys!”

Written on: 06/09/2012 by ABeeJ (1 review written)

I booked my car in for a MOT Test recently at F1 Autocentres Bristol(Days Road) and the service was absolutely appalling. They lure you with cheap MOTs and then try to get you to pay for unnecessary repairs at inflated prices. The staff (Craig and Sorbas) have no idea of customer service and are con artists. Don't fall for their scare tactics and always get a second opinion from another garage. In my case, they became increasing rude and hostile when I told them that I would be getting my car… Read Full Review

“Your word against ours”

Written on: 23/03/2012 by cothamrocks (1 review written)

Terrible experience. Hours and hours of waiting. Incorrect parts ordering. Staff not knowing how to do the work. Incorrect information. Nightmare. Job incorrectly completed had to take car back. And again. Third time - broken plastic covers and parts falling off doors - 'its our word against yours'. Legal advices was that in fact it was theirs vs trading standards. Terrible. I would never ever spend a four figure sum with these people again. What did I like - promises when I handed the car… Read Full Review

“Formula One Autocentres - Good review about Bristol...”

Written on: 13/08/2010 by ChrisBBristol (1 review written)

Formula One Autocentres - Good review about Bristol Depot. Just wanted to pass on my thanks to the guys at your Bristol (Days Rd) branch. I had an MOT and rear shocks done on an 89 Escort RST and must say the job all round was very good including the price for the work.

I guess I could get an MOT and work done anywhere but they knew a lot about my 21 year old car which impressed me. The staff who I dealt with were friendly and answered all my question and even had the patience to answer and… Read Full Review
