Is It Better To Drive In Overdrive Or Normal Drive?
Unless driving conditions in the Kingston area indicate otherwise, Sharp Transmissions tells our customers that transmission are controlled electronically by a computer and should be driven in overdrive.
Their prices are very reasonable and they always explain everything and tell me what options I have. I highly recommend them.

"Experience and Honesty. I've been taking my vehicles to Sharp Transmissions in Kingston for over 20 years. I can always count on them to be honest and fast. Their prices are very reasonable and they always explain everything and tell me what options I have. I highly recommend them. "
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"
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!"
Thanks Milt! For the great service and honesty that's hard to find in this world today....

"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"
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!

"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 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.

"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. ilt 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 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."
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."
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.
