About Bret's Autoworks, Gardner

Total Commitment To Our Customers

Bret's Autoworks, Gardner location opened in 2008 by Shawn Fischer and Leo Murry. Shawn was serving as the general manager and owner of Bret's Autoworks in Olathe when he met Leo. Leo filled a technician position in 2001, and the two became fast friends.

 

Bret Tredway started the original location in Olathe over 30 years ago. Bret began working on cars from his home while attending MidAmerica Nazarene University. He enjoyed it so much he decided to open his repair shop after he graduated. He knew the importance of providing high quality, honest repairs. In 2001 Shawn joined Bret as partners, and eventually, Bret moved on to take on other adventures.

Friendly staff. Explained the problems with my car in a manner I could understand.... I'm dumb when it comes to cars. Didn't pressure me into repairs just to make money off me. I'll be taking my car back there for the repairs when time comes. Thanks Bret's employees!!!

100% satisfaction...as usual. Tracy is an angel and we are always treated like family. Quick, reliable, detailed service at a fair price (the video is awesome and backs up everything I’m told). Never feel like I’m being told to do more repairs than I need and advised on what to watch for and keep on my radar for future service.

I am working at the hospital during the covid 19 pandemic and needed an oil change badly! I wasn’t able to find a place open or that would work with my work schedule! Then I saw Brett’s was offering a few oil change for health care workers! What a blessing! They were very friendly and easy to work with! I dropped it off before work and was able to get it after! Thank you! I’ll be coming back in the future for oil changes!
