Sharp Transmissions
Sharp Transmission is my trusted auto shop in New York hands down. My transmission blew out and my car was stuck in the Wendy's parking lot overnight. I called Sharp for an estimate, then called a lot of other places. They were nothing but kind even with my finicky calling around and being unsure. They made me feel comfortable. My uncle and my stepdad had always been my mechanics, and this was my first time going to a big auto place, but I felt just like family. They even sent a tow truck to come get my car for much less than a towing place. I never felt pressured into choosing Sharp, even though I eventually did. They told my it would take a week to fully rebuild the transmission and it was done right on schedule. When I got there to pick it up, they told me that my battery was very old and probably wouldn't last long and that I had another easily fixed problem that was causing the massive oil leak I had been having. They fixed both of those problems for me as well and my car, after around 5 months, is still running in great shape. The oil leak is gone and my 17 year old car runs almost like new! If you have any transmission problems, Sharp is the best and brightest!

Do not use their service department. They will continue to up the price and end up doubling the quote. What a bunch of rip offs

We purchased a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee from Begnal Motors on August 15th. Within 24 hours from picking up our car, we had issues. The car went into limp mode, it wouldn't go above 25 miles per hour. We dropped the car off to be repaired on Sunday, August 18th. It turned out to be 3 major fixes that needed to be done and it would be about 5 days to complete.The problem here is not just that we had issues with the car, but the customer service we received AFTER they got our money:1) Nobody called us once to apologize for the inconvenience of a car we purchased from them breaking down within 24 hours of us having it.2) Nobody returned our calls when we asked to speak with the management of the used car department (Kevin) about everything that had happened. (The fact that we had to call is a little twisted too, I feel they should have called us to just extend an apology...)3) We had to ASK for a loaner car after being told our car would be out of commission for about a week. Call me crazy but this is not how you treat customers who made a hefty investment with your company. Begnal has not only lost our future business, but lost our trust in them as a business. That all being said, we actually will miss working with Jim, a salesman in the used dealership. We have worked with him twice in the past 2 years, he got us into both of our vehicles and did everything he could do on his end to make us happy. Unfortunately the people above him who should have stepped up to do the right thing failed. The service department was also very helpful in explaining the problems with the car and getting the car back as fast as they could.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
