About Bret's Autoworks, Gardner

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 had Bret’s do a oil change on my car and it was done within the day! Super fast and friendly. Definitely will be returning for them to complete other services. Jeff is always is very descriptive when describing what problems my car has (when it has them) and explains the best solutions for fixing them.
