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.
Great service! Honest and reliable care always! Using them for years and always get excellent work on my car. These guys really care and know their business. I would recommend them to everyone!
Overcharged for my work, took forever for him to even get to it. When I came to pick it up the guy just handed me a bill and didn't even say "good afternoon." Total ripoff.
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 recieve 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 oppossed to many various specialists. Anyway, its a good place - give them a shot.
Thanks, Sharp Transmissions - I'll certainly be back!
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 Transmission’s service.
great work – 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.
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!!
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.
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...
poor srvice, rip off – Went there for a diagnostic test. He said we could do that... got in the truck with me he drove it. Said it looks good but a bit noisie in firs gear. He suggested to pull the transmission appart to look in it. I knew that was a character of these 4l80e transmisson(not all of em). So i told him i didn`t have the money right now (i really didn`t) So we got back to the shop.......he sais that`d be a $100!! What??? $100 for a road test that took him 2 minutes the most. Didn`t hook it up to a scanner nothing. Be aware!! They want your money!
