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.

Very impressed! I have never had a mechanic go through every detail with me and never on a video before. So glad I took my car to them because they found some issues that would have been a problem later on in the summer if not addressed now. So happy they are local and I can come to them when needed!
