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. "
The mechanic (Milt) test drove my minivan hooking the computer to locate the problem alongside me. After the test, he told me that it was not the transmission problem; it was a problem with Throttle Position Censor (TPS). He replaced the TPS while I waited. I paid $300 for this service. They were very professional and courteous.
Shafiul Choudhury of Saugerties NY
"Car Trouble and a good solution. I recently had a problem with my 2003 Mazda MPV (app.115k miles). The vehicle started shking while shifting gears. Shaking increased with increasing speed. I took my car to a local Monroe shop. They recommended to have it checked for transmission problem. I made an appointment with Sharp Transmission of Kingston, New York. The mechanic (Milt) test drove my minivan hooking the computer to locate the problem alongside me. After the test, he told me that it was not the transmission problem; it was a problem with Throttle Position Censor (TPS). He replaced the TPS while I waited. I paid $300 for this service. They were very professional and courteous. I am very satisfied with Sharp Transmissionâ€™s service."

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!"
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."
