The timing was exactly as he predicted and the final price if the transmission matched the estimate.
Elizabeth Murphy of Saugerties NY
"My husband's 1999 Saturn needed a new transmission. Sharp Transmission was recommended to us by our mechanic, and we thought it couldn't hurt to see what they could do before searching for a new car. Milt was fantastic; calm and reassuring. The estimate for a rebuilt transmission, assuming he could find one, was about half what I thought I would have to pay. The timing was exactly as he predicted and the final price if the transmission matched the estimate. Other issues were discovered once work began, but his communication was excellent and the whole job was completed within the original time frame. I would definitely recommend Sharp Transmission to anyone who needs this type of work done and wants to know the cost will be low and the quality high."
In short, you will not find a more knowledgeable, trustworthy, auto repair / maintenance shop in the area. Highly recommendation.

"To the next Sharp Transmissions' customer: I'll cut to the chase. Milt and his crew know what they are doing. They're not parts replacers. They're diagnosticians. Here are some of the services they've performed on my vehicle: 1. Oil changes 2. Heater core service 3. A/C recharge 4. Battery terminal replacement After the vehicle was serviced, I didn't come back until the next service cycle. Once they fix it, it's fixed. Also, if you ask questions, Milt and his team speak Human. They'll patiently describe the problem and outline the solution in simple terms. That's an art in of itself. I moved here from the Midwest a few years ago. When I arrived, I immediately ran into car trouble. Didn't think I could find someone as good as my last guy. I was wrong. In short, you will not find a more knowledgeable, trustworthy, auto repair / maintenance shop in the area. Highly recommendation."
You really are one of the last of the Good Guys!

"My 2004 Chevy Impala was shifting hard, but only sporadically. I went to my usual mechanic and he highly recommended Sharp Transmissions. I am reluctant because I know men tend to think women know nothing of cars. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they never spoke to me condescendingly. They didn't try to push anything that wasn't necessary. When I asked if this was a smart decision to replace my tranny, I was assured it was. I was then shown how good of condition my car was and it made sense. I love my car and am very happy on the service they did. They even topped the air in my tires! I highly recommend these guys."
Very impressed by Sharp Transmission. Did great work on my old Honda Odyssey 1999. Offered followup testing and did a thorough and decent job. Communicated well. The mechanics were very knowledgeable and helpful

If you think you have a transmission issue?, TAKE IT TO SHARP!
GoodHorsekeeping GoodHorsekeeping of Kerhonkson NY
"Superior Transmission Service from Sharp Transmissions. I took my 2002 Ford Ranger into STS Tire and Auto because I had a terrible noise that turned out to be wheel bearings and chopped tires. I was also mistakenly told by a service tech (STS)not from Sharp) and (not a transmission specialist) that my transmission was not shifting properly. (tech's error). If transmission was not shifting properly, I would be doing 60 mph in 2nd gear @ 3500+ R.P.M.(after the fact) and I would know it. The manager from STS highly recommended that I take my truck to SHARP Transmissions in Kingston. I did. They found NOTHING wrong with the transmission other then to recommended a flush. So I had it flushed at 75K, end of story. Truck would have needed to be flushed anyway. Transmission had no issues. What does that say about Sharp Transmission's?? If you think you have a transmission issue?, TAKE IT TO SHARP! I did how ever wind up getting wheel bearings and tires at S.T.S.. I Knew it was coming. The noise was a combination of bearings and chopped tires. Had I rotated the tires every 5 to 7k miles, I would have just needed bearings. Thank you MIlton and your staff for taking good care of my Truck! So if your transmission dies and you can't drive your vehicle there then tow it there! Sharp has all the diagnostic equipment and professional service for your transmission! K.F. I will always recommend you!"
Thanks Milt! For the great service and honesty that's hard to find in this world today....

Thomas T. of Long Island NY
"Quality Excellent Thanks Milt! For the great service and honesty that's hard to find in this world today.... On 12/8/08 I broke down on the NYST south. I asked the tow truck driver to take me to the most reputable transmission place he knew, and that he did! When I walked into the shop, I first asked if I could use the bathroom, when I walked into the bathroom I was surprised to see how clean it was for a repair shop, too me the first good indicator.. After peaking in the shop and noticing a clean organized work environment I felt even better.... After leaving the vehicle and having them diagnose the problem they gave me two options, factory rebuilt or rebuild the existing.. I did wind up going with the factory rebuild with a great warranty and to this day almost four years later and no problems, I would highly recommend Milt and his crew! Also to this day Milt will answer any questions in regards to the vehicle I had repaired almost 4 years ago without any hesitation.... But let me remind you the questions I ask are regular service questions, not problems I'm having, because I have had no problems what so ever! THANKS again Sharp Transmissions"
Their prices are very reasonable and they always explain everything and tell me what options I have. I highly recommend them.
