Everything was perfect!
Great job! Would recommend!
Flexible, competent, and efficient. Definitely recommended!
Friendly staff and quick turn around
Very good service although pick up time of the car was delayed as they were particularly busy that day. I had requested additional work to be carried out during/ after the service and this was not charged due to the delay. Overall very impressed and would use them again.
Dean was great job done promptly and on price. Been back since for other job.
Excellent service and kept well informed all through the process. Brilliant price and was also offered the use of a courtesy car. I'll definitely be using them again in the future.
I feel reluctant to recommend Dean and his relatively new business because the next time I use small car services they will probably be overbooked lol In all seriousness though, this guy has heaps of experience, as well as being genuinely a bloody nice chap. Despite being busy, he still remembers the most important traits in any business, he is a people person well mannered and always in contact by message and phone....Thanks again Dean
Good price and great service
Excellent service and fixed another problem that I had for ages, that other garages could not find
Nice that they picked up my car and dropped it back and everyone I dealt with from the company was extremely nice and friendly. They performed a full service and MOT, no hassle.
Really happy with the service provided (MOT and Full Service), and to my surprise they valeted my car as a bonus. What's not to like about this? :)
Absolutely happy with the service
Excellent service that despite checking all feeds to the car radio couldn't find any fault. However, they are ordering a used radio to fit my car. Who could ask for more?
Quick reply and excellent customer service . would recommend
Good place to go if you need car repairs in the Millbrook area of Southampton. As it's a small business you can speak directly to the person doing the repairs :-).
we asked replace the clutch and service. It was fantastic job! we definitely come back.
Service went ok, however there was a fault light with the car and the diagnostics undertaken was wrong. I was told the injectors were at fault according to the code, it turned out to be the crankshaft sensor.

Forty years down the line, we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest independent autocentre chains. The business remains family owned and continues to uphold its original commitment to delivering the highest quality service at the most competitive prices.
That commitment has proved incredibly popular with motorists, creating many thousands of loyal customers who continue to put their trust in Formula One Autocentres.

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
We work with a network of over 10,000 mechanics and garages across the UK so we can find competitive air conditioning regas deals for you.
You can then compare the quotes and read reviews from previous customers to find the best deal in your area, before booking aircon regas online.
