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.

Very professional and personable staff and service. They confirmed the problem with me; provided a video; and, gave me a price. The car was done when they promised and the problem was fixed as promised. They have worked on my car before and I was nothing but satisfied with the work and even happier about the price. A great shout out to Jeff and his team for running a clean, honest and dependable business.

Bret’s is probably the best automotive repair shop I’ve ever been to. They email you video reviews of what is going on with your car, and give you good options on repairs and recommended services that fit within your current budget. I would recommend Bret’s to anyone I know.

This is an honest & quality auto repair shop. I'm glad I was recommended by a friend to this place. They showed me exactly what the problem was by sending me a video through a link. They have competitive pricing as I shopped around after the inspection of my vehicle. In this case they ended up being lower than the competition. For future repairs I will be going to Bret's regardless if they're more expensive than competition or not (I value Integrity/Honesty). REPAIR: I had to get my AC Condenser replaced because a bolt hit my condenser while I was driving on the highway.
