As usual great service, price and value. It was pouring with rain all day so lots of people were getting punctures so extra busy but still the same level of courtesy from staff.

Having booked a service and MOT as a repeat customer I was shocked at the deterioration of service at this garage and will not be returning. I dealt with Alex (the manager?) who was extremely aggressive.

This garage determines which oil is required for your vehicle by using software provided by their oil provider, so don't be shocked if you a charged an additional £20 for premium oil.

To cut a long story short, the work was not completed satisfactorily and my vehicle was left on the far side of the forecourt unlocked.

The only saving grace was the assistant manager who managed to at least calm the situation.

I booked a service on the 13th of July at the Canterbury branch (broad oak). I was concerned because every time there was a sleeping policeman, I heard that there was something touching the bottom of the car. I told this to the guy but he clearly ignored my request since he was surprised when I asked if they checked (he said yes but not in a very convincing way). The problem persisted and the other day the exhaust fell down. He was more concerned in pushing me in changing the timing belt (he said that not changing the timing belt could result in a liability in the MOT). Finally, I decided to scrap the car but I have the feeling that after that service, The car started to work not in a proper way. The bill was quite high, and this was quite unsatisfactory. I will not use formula one anymore. I had also the impression that the management changed with respect the previous years since I didn't see the usual people (but maybe I'm wrong...).

They did my service and mot. It was easy to arrange and quality service. They rang me when it was done and gave me a detailed brake down the problems they found. They gave me a clear price brake down. Would 100% use again

My husband actually recommended that I go to Formula One. Called prior to ensure they had the tyre in stock, I had a patronising response asking me if I am sure I had the correct tyre number. YES I am a female and I do drive a van, hence I need a slightly larger tyre than the male member of staff thought a female would dare be able to drive. Having arrived at the premises was told it would be done straight away .....1 hour of sitting waiting and chasing up, 1 tyre replaced. 2 stars for being able to change a tyre WELL DONE!
IF YOU LIKE BEING TREATED AS IF YOU ARE INEPT THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!!

I had booked my car in for a MOT & master care service and had drop if off at opening time. At 11.40 I had a call to say that I need my bulbs changing for MOT I didn't see why as was all working when parked it up . I was told that my bulbs should be full white or yellow. I replied with im shore they are ok as have been in car for the last few years since 2014 and had passed with the main dealer and have never been a problem before. The respons was we can leave them for you to change and you then can bring it back for a retest and you should take this up with you main dealer as are not the right ones. Iv no time to mess around with all this changing bulbs and then taking it back so explained this and asked them to change them . I was ask only if your happy with this , well no I'm not happy to be charged for something that had never been a problem in the past but you can do if it means it passing. The guy wouldn't leave it and spent 20 / 30 going on about what was wrong with the bulbs. I got it the first time but what he had failed to notice was they was prisom led bulbs so at one angle it looked tint of blue and from another was white. Iv got prisom lights in my car as standed as do most modern cars and they do exactly the same . How can they not no this and wast my time and keep going on and to add insult he printed off a copy of the law/ vosa of mot standed and stapled it to my paper work .

Customers please be aware of these charges before agreeing to having this work done and seek advise from someone in the know before you go ahead with the work !!.

Awful! Completely ripped off. Didn't do what I paid for. Made sure there was more expense on my behalf to them. Did the mot before the service.. surprise surprise it failed the mot. said I needed new spark plugs when I had them replaced last year.
And they delightfully inform you that they have 0% finance package that they can happily set you up to pay your rip off bill.
Avoid at all costs!! Im Far from happy.

It doesn't deserve the 1 star either!!

Never going here again!! They have had my car since 0830 yesterday.. it's still not ready! They offer cheaper mot and service but then con you by saying you need stuff replaced that don't need replacing.
They do the mot and fail it before carrying out the service so you pay extra!
Pure con!! Never ever coming back! It doesn't even deserve 1 star!

Tyres were done efficiently. I agreed to the tracking check (who wouldn't?) but was pretty certain I would be told it needed doing, which is what happened. Price was £10 over what I could have got this for elsewhere, but overall it was still ok

Had two rear 255 30R19 Pirelli's fitted to my 335d coupe. Yet again got great service. Best price tyres I can find on the internet. Combined the tyre change with MOT and brake fluid change and got a good deal over the phone. I also took my wife's car a while ago because I was worried about strange steering, guys were very helpful and checked everything out for me. Would definitely recommend, I will be going back.
