"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"
Thanks Milt! For the great service and honesty that's hard to find in this world today....
Long Island NY
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"
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.

Elizabeth Murphy of Saugerties New York
"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."
You really are one of the last of the Good Guys!

Gary Arold of Kingston NY
"With a large fleet of construction equipment and service vehicles we often find the need for transmission service and rebuilds. For over 25 years Sharp Transmissions has been our one and only call."

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."
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. "

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! "
