Established in 1974, Formula One Autocentres set out with a mission to deliver a completely new fast-fit experience to its customers. This would feature clean, modern premises, high-tech equipment and highly trained technicians; far removed from the kind of service normally associated with the industry.
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.
As a result, the company has gone from strength to strength, currently boasting over 85 state-of-the-art branches across England, with over 500 highly trained staff working seven days a week to provide a full range of services including tyres, exhausts, batteries, brakes, clutches, MOT's and servicing.
We remain resolutely independent, and as a family owned business, avoid being tied down to any single manufacturer or supplier. This gives us the freedom and flexibility to offer the biggest deals on the widest possible range of top branded products, making the company a viable, attractive and cost-effective alternative to both the big national chains and smaller local independent outlets. Quite simply, Formula One Autocentres provides cost-conscious motorists with the most reliable and affordable means of maintaining their vehicles.
We defend our position at the forefront of the fast-fit industry by constantly evolving and developing innovative new products and services to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers. With an ongoing expansion programme and by regular investment in technology, we continue to provide unbeatable fast-fit service along with the very best value prices. In fact, we can confidently claim that no other company is better equipped to face the motoring challenges of the future.

Brilliant friendly, efficient service. Happy to do a job some other garages had turned down as too complex. Highly recommended.
An excellent service at an excellent price. The above price included a cam-belt and water pump change, oil and air filter change and a C3 oil change. Polite and friendly staff who also loaned me a courtesy car whilst the job was done. If I could I would award them six stars. Well done.
Very pleased with cambelt replacement and water pump an extra bonus.Very helpful and alot cheaper than competitors.
Very happy with Whocanfixmycar......not used or known about them before. Chose the middle prices of 3 offered, partly because of offer to collect car from home and return it at no extra charge. Also had very good reviews. Also totally happy with Southcoast Auto. Communication was very good, always quick response. Job was a cam belt replacement as engine was at 90000m. Car was away for 24 hours by mutual consent, and Mike happily agreed to add an oil change to original job.. Would use both organisations again with no hesitation.

The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
