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.

If you want to feel confident your vehicle is repaired correctly, this is the place. Not cheap, but I guess no car repair is these days. They also do diesel vehicles. Friendly staff. Use video communication to show you what they find. Make appt. Another appointment for a used car for my granddaughter. Changed oil and filter and went over entire car. Found a oil leak which they fixed. Still covid conditions, so they text or email you a video of what they find. Good folks and trustworthy.

Excellent as always. Brets is THE ONLY garage I trust with my cars, and I recommend them to anyone who needs honest, reliable, knowledgeable people to work on their vehicle. They will tell you what needs done now and what will need done but can wait. They do not try to pressure you into unnecessary “fixes”. As a woman alone, I learned that there are a lot of places that do that and Brets is not one of those places. I would NEVER hesitate to recommend them!

Was there for a oil change and ask them check battery as the truck was having trouble starting. Battery was weak and they changed it and the oil in one hour. Great job
