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.

The whole staff at Bret’s is great! They are courteous, friendly, and extremely good at their jobs. I’ve been taking my cars to Bret’s for over 10 years for everything from an oil change to a couple of major repairs on a 14 year old SUV. They have always shown me exactly what needs to be done, and why it needs to be done, all at a very reasonable price. Bret’s team is scrupulously honest, and I trust them completely! It’s like having a close family friend or relative who happens to also be an expert on cars, and is anxious to help. I actually look forward to taking my cars there. I wouldn’t choose to go anywhere else.

Very professional! Very kind and patient. Very detailed in their managing work details regarding my vehicle repairs. I have never been to a mechanic to match their customer service and extra effort. They sent me an actual video from their Certified Mechanic going over every part they worked on to show me the issue. Wonderful experience at Brett’s Automotive
