About Bret's Autoworks, Gardner

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.

I have used Bret's for scheduled maintenance and unscheduled emergencies. They have always been professional and through. They always show you what is wrong with visual presentations and give a firm estimate for repairs. I would recommend Bret's to everyone.

I've taken my cars to Bret's several times and have consistantly had outstanding service. The last time I took my car in, they texted me a video of the technician explaining exactly what and where the issue with the liftgate was, which made it easier to understand & decide how to proceed. Communication and service are top notch, I would definitely recommend Brets!

I had a great experience with Brets Automotive. They sent me a video of what they found, so it was much easier to explain to my husband. They were very responsive and had me diagnosed and fixed within 24 hours. Friendly and professional. I hope to not have any more car problems, but if I do I would definitely go back.

So glad you like the video!
