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!"
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.

"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."
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."
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."

Dave Reuter of Hyde Park NY
"You want the best, you got the best!. I recently had an issue with my 2003 Ford Explorer. I took it to 3 different mechanics and no one could figure it out. Finally, a friend suggested I take it to sharp in Kingston. I got a call the next day that the car was ready and the issue was solved. Thanks guys for being so knowledgeable. Lets put it this way. If you had to have an operation, would you want to use the guy who has done 5 of them or the guy who has done 5000. Enough said..."
Trustworthy, Informative & Fair. I have taken my vehicles to Sharp Transmissions for years. Prices are reasonable and the crew is trustworthy and educated in their field.
Leah C. of Albany NY
"Trustworthy, Informative & Fair. I have taken my vehicles to Sharp Transmissions for years. Prices are reasonable and the crew is trustworthy and educated in their field. I always receive options and an informed explanation for what is being done, why it is being done and what the cost will be. The Sharp Transmissions guys are quick and reliable and take good care of their customers (just take a look at the many "thank you notes" up on the walls). They even do more than just transmissions, and are experts in all aspects of car repairs - which is a big help to me since I have had bad experiences at other repair shops in the past and like to stick with a place I can trust - plus it is just more convenient for me to take my care to one place as opposed to many various specialists. Anyway, its a good place - give them a shot. Thanks, Sharp Transmissions - I'll certainly be back! "
If you think you have a transmission issue?, TAKE IT TO SHARP!

"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!"
I got my truck back a few days later with the transmission rebuilt by Milt and his team and it runs perfectly.
Fred Rasmussen of Kingston NY
"Frederick Rasmussen reviewed in the last week Quality Excellent Incredible is all I have to say. My truck started slipping and immediately I brought the truck to Milt. He diagnosed the problem which was a known defect that the manufacturer knows about but was not covering. I had an extended warranty that the company was not going to cover either. Milt went above and beyond to work with the adjuster to prove this was a warranty issue. I got my truck back a few days later with the transmission rebuilt by Milt and his team and it runs perfectly. This is the second vehicle that I had work done at Sharp and if I ever need work on any of my other vehicles, I will definitely be getting them over to Milt's place. One more thing. It nice to walk into a place where they talk to you and explain things rather than just take your keys and say we'll call you when we know whats wrong. Thanks again Milt. You have a lifetime customer"
