John B
Hometune was originally established in 1968 as the first mobile car engine tuning company in the UK. Originally a franchise with over 150 vans nationwide, we have been owned and run by such companies as Mazda UK and Kwik-Fit.

The franchise was ceased in 2003 and since then many technicians have continued independently, such as myself, who has owned and run this business since 1991. In that time I have completed in excess of 10000 jobs on virtually every make and model of car and light van. In 2010 I worked with the AA for a year whilst also doing my own repairs with Hometune on the side in my spare time and kept the business going so it never ceased.
In 2011 I came back to Hometune full-time and accelerated the business. I work on all makes/models of cars & will tackle all repairs, so whatever the issue I can get you back on the road. Read more

Was a short notice job for a vehicle inspection and he arrived on time and carried out the work as intended. It shows in the report and through conversation he knows exactly what he’s talking about, finding even the smallest of potential issues and making me aware of them. I’d happily use John again without hesitation! Fantastic work!

He replaced starter motor quickly and efficiently.
The argument with the chap living next door when the mechanic told him, "I hope you get covid and die", I don't feel very appropriate however, just because he had to move his vehicle a little.

Reply from John:

Hi,
The neighbour next door was just as abusive to me and he actually blocked the back doors of my van by driving up behind it within 4 inches of the rear doors just to make a point even though I wasn't across his gate almost as if he owns the public road for his own personal use, I was probably a little over the top but seriously his was pressing my buttons !
