I am so impressed with the service I received! Timely phone call when they received my keys in the drop box and told me the timeline to expect. Once they diagnosed my car trouble they sent a video and thoroughly explained the situation. You can tell they were sincere and truthful and not trying to sell you things. Very polite and courteous which I normally don’t get at auto shops. This was my first experience and I am definitely coming here for all my auto needs!

Brought a vehicle in for an oil change and to check out a leak. They sent me a video of what they did and saw under the hood and made recommendations on what to do. They were helpful, not pushy, and I definitely would feel comfortable using them in the future.

Bret's mechanic did a fantastic job of videoing the car and pinpointing the problems. And they did exactly what I asked them to do. Tracy is super thorough and nice to talk with. The car runs good now and I would use their services again.

10/10 would recommend Bret’s Autoworks for any work needing done on vehicles. They are always willing to look/work on my car without hesitation. Tracy, the lady at the desk, is always so caring, very knowledgeable on vehicles, and always explains what’s going on with my vehicle well. The technicians always do great work and I feel comfortable leaving my car with them. I trust the work they do! I would much rather use Bret’s than go to a dealership to have maintenance done.

They are honest and straight-forward. Our SUV is 22 years old with nearly 300,000 miles. They pay great attention to detail, but they don't push us to make costly repairs that aren't worthwhile with the age and wear on our vehicle. They take care of their customers like we're family.
