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.

This is the first time I've used Bret's to get an oil change, they were very friendly and did the job in about 45 minutes. Was very happy with the service.

These guys know their business and they do it well. They also take care of their customers. A recent family emergency brought with it a car “emergency.” Bret’s went to bat for us and got our car repaired immediately so we could take care of our long-distant family emergency. Thanks, you guys. Much appreciated!!

Sent a video with all the problems they found, did the work they needed to, and didn't charge anything outlandish. Seems like a shop that won't screw you backwards

If you want to feel confident your vehicle is repaired correctly, this is the place. Not cheap, but I guess no car repair is these days. They also do diesel vehicles. Friendly staff. Use video communication to show you what they find. Make appt. Another appointment for a used car for my granddaughter. Changed oil and filter and went over entire car. Found a oil leak which they fixed. Still covid conditions, so they text or email you a video of what they find. Good folks and trustworthy.
