I had a very tricky truck failure while out of town. I had my vehicle towed to Bret's and they stuck with it until the truck was fixed. Can't say enough about how nice and clean the shop is and how great all of the staff are. Jeff,Tracy, and Leo sent me videos and stayed in contact with me through all the repairs I needed to get my truck back on the road. Thanks again for everything and if someone is reading this you should pick Bret's for you auto repairs.

Jeff, We are so happy we could resolve your truck's issue Glad to hear you found the videos to be helpful! Thank you so much for the recommendation.
