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"
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."
When my local shop could not handle my car's transmission problem, I was advised to go to Sharp in Kingston.
Jean K of Kerhonkson
"When my local shop could not handle my car's transmission problem, I was advised to go to Sharp in Kingston. Milt had the car towed and called me with my options. After making an informed decision and giving Milt the OK, he began the work and called to give me bad news: the vehicle, 10 years old, had multiple additional problems. The cost to repair exceeded the value of the vehicle. Milt kept the car until I was able to get it hauled away, made a recommendation for a replacement vehicle and charged me a minimal charge for the work. How respectable. Six stars!"
When all was said and done, I got the oil change, a transmission flush, a new battery, and a new air filter for a price that I'm positive would have been about triple at the dealer.
Leslie G. of Kingston NY
"I recently moved to Kingston and needed to find a place to take my car (Toyota Matrix). I'm one of those people who has always taken my car to the dealer, but this time I wanted to take it elsewhere to hopefully avoid getting gouged. So, I took my car to Sharp for an oil change and an overall check. There were certain things that the dealer had told me needed to be fixed, so I wanted Sharp to check these things and tell me if they truly did need to be addressed. When all was said and done, I got the oil change, a transmission flush, a new battery, and a new air filter for a price that I'm positive would have been about triple at the dealer. Also, they informed me that one of the things the dealer said needed to be fixed is not in need of repair. Milt was extremely courteous when I dropped off my car in the morning and when I picked it up in the afternoon (they finished about 3 hours earlier than scheduled, which was great). He went over the entire vehicle maintenance checklist with me and explained what had been checked, what had been fixed, and what would need to be fixed down the road. He even gave me a free pen to boot. My experience here was really great, and I will definitely return. I never felt like I was being sold things I don't need, which was a frequent experience at the dealer. I can safely say that my days at the dealer are done."
Thanks again Sharp Transmission, you earned 5 stars from this customer.
Tina Gomo of Highland NY
"As I was getting ready for my daily morning commute to work I heard an off sound in my rear brakes. Without any appt or call I stopped into Sharp Transmissions to express my concerns. The owner Milt took my vehicle for an extensive road test and insured me that all is well, at no cost. It's so nice to have a car business that is all about customer service, as I left he reminded me about an upcoming oil change and transmission service to keep my vehicle in tip top shape for the climate changes. Thanks again Sharp Transmission, you earned 5 stars from this customer. "
I highly recommend Sharp Transmission and Milt to anyone wanting top quality service.

"Sharp Transmissions did a great job in two ways for me: First, my 28 Tudor Ford hot rod needed a transmission, shift kit and drive shaft. When I purchased the rod, much of the existing equipment in these areas was in bad shape, some with poorly made parts that compromised performance and safety. Milt installed everything right and carefully explained the sourcing, process and work itself. I have also had other repairs and fabrication work done at Sharp on the rod and am very well satisfied by all of it, including the workmanship and care that went into every step. Whether you need regular transmission type work done, or specialty work on a unique vehicle, I highly recommend Sharp Transmission and Milt to anyone wanting top quality service."
I'm glad that over the last few years Sharp Transmissions has expanded it's services to include ALL things automotive.
John Platania of Rhinebeck NY
"I'm glad that over the last few years Sharp Transmissions has expanded it's services to include ALL things automotive. They handle all my car care needs - most recently valve cover gasket replacement - expertly, reasonably & always in a timely manner. Highly recommended."
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.

"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."
