Check Engine Light
Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care understands that nothing can be more annoying than when driving around the roads of the greater Newark area, New Castle and Middletown only to look down and see the dreaded "check engine light" on the vehicle's dashboard. When light, the check engine signal is indicating that there may be something wrong with the tuning of the vehicle's engine, but it is still a long way from an accurate diagnosis. There are numerous triggers that could result in the check engine light turning on, and each trigger may be due to any number of different needed repairs. Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care tells our customers in the Newark area, New Castle and Middletown that after noticing the presence of the check engine light, it is best to have one of our highly trained ASE Certified technicians isolate what is causing the problem. The technicians at Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care in Newark are considered by many to be the most qualified in the industry and use only the most advanced diagnostic tools available to locate and correct the problem.
If you live in the Newark area and have a car or truck with an actively light check engine signal, Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care offers a inspection at our Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care area auto repair facility by team of automotive specialists. We invite you schedule an appointment as quickly as possible to avoid a potentially more serious maintenance issue.

You have earned our trust not only in your integrity but in your knowledge of transmissions

"In the 3 years since we bought our son's '99 Mustang it has had repeated transmission and clutch problems. The car is now in DE with our son who is a student there. When the Mustang recently began showing signs of yet more problems with the transmission/clutch we weren't sure where to turn. Should we have the car towed home to our mechanic in NJ or trust a total stranger in DE to diagnose and fix the problem? If we did the latter, would we get fleeced? Looking for advice we called AAA. They recommended Benchmark Transmission. My son immediately drove his car over to Benchmark. Dante and Rich checked the car over, spoke multiple times with me on the phone about their findings, and ultimately suggested that they try some simple and inexpensive adjustments to see if those might solve the problem. They did. My son picked the car up 24 hours after dropping it off and says it shifts perfectly now. Because the labor involved was not extensive Dante even refused to accept payment for his work/time. Thank you, Dante and Rich, for your honesty, for not suggesting that the only course of action was to pull the transmission and search for the root of the recurrent problem. You have earned our trust not only in your integrity but in your knowledge of transmissions as well. Rest assured that if we should need transmission work in the future, we will trust you to do it. "
Benchmark Transmission operates with integrity, takes pride in its work, and treats the customers with courtesy
Richard Broad of Fairfax Virginia
"While I was in Middletown Delaware on business, I experienced what I thought was a transmission problem and took my car to Benchmark Transmission Middletown Delaware. Craig and John made a FREE assessment of the problem that morning, advised me of the cost, and indicated they could fix it by the next morning. When I asked if they could do the job that afternoon, they said they would try. I received a call back by 3:30 that afternoon indicating the car was ready. When I picked it up at 4, I was greeted in a pleasant manner and the charge was exactly what they had indicated. They had replaced a broken Transmission cooler line and the car now runs fine. Most places, realizing that I am not an auto mechanic, would have likely tried to install a new transmission, taken a couple of days to so, and charged a small fortune. I could not have been any more satisfied with the service. Benchmark Transmission operates with integrity, takes pride in its work, and treats the customers with courtesy I have rarely experienced. This is the finest experience I can recall ever in the maintenance of my car. It was a pleasure doing business with such high quality people."
We can not thank you enough for your friendly courteous service.
Joseph Lange of Wilmington Delaware
"I am writing this letter to let you know how much we appreciate the way you helped us out last Wednesday. You responded to our call for assistance quickly and efficiently. We will always call Benchmark Transmission whenever we find that we are having a problem with any of our vehicles. You generously sent a mechanic to my job site and took care of the problem. We can not thank you enough for your friendly courteous service. "
Honest/Ethical Business!! I recently took my vehicle (Toyota Rav4) to Benchmark in Middletown, DE regarding a thumping I was experiencing in the auto transmission when changing gears. Not only did they check the vehicle free of charge, but they identified a recall on the year model I own (2003). The manager Mitch contacted me and told me the good news and said the service manager at Toyota was waiting for my call to schedule

arrived at Benchmark Transmission sure that I was going to get the same estimate that I had just received at Union Park Honda. I was so wrong!! When Mitch called me with the estimate and it was $3800.00 less, I was in shock. I was about to buy a new car instead of having this one repaired

morning, they took the bus in and fixed it before we needed it for that day.
Jeffrey Frank of Middletown Delaware
"We had an issue with one of our Diesel buses. We needed the work done right away. We called Benchmark Transmission in Midddletown early in the morning, they took the bus in and fixed it before we needed it for that day. We were very pleased with the results. Would definitely recommend them."
I took my vehicle here and I have received nothing but complete professionalism, promptness and they were so helpful. Made me understand what was going with my vehicle in layman's terms so that I could understand the process!
Kathy Mays of Seaford Delaware
"I took my vehicle here and I have received nothing but complete professionalism, promptness and they were so helpful. Made me understand what was going with my vehicle in layman's terms so that I could understand the process! Dontae has kept me informed every step of the way. The honesty of this place was unbelievable. At this point they don't think it is my transmission and possibly a reprogamming of a module and he even helped get my car to the dealer at no cost to them. If in the future I need transmission repair work, it will be here. This is an honest place to take your vehicle. I will refer them to anyone!! Thank you Benchmark Transmission of Newark, you guys rock! "
I will be sure to recommend Benchmark Transmission to anyone I know seeking transmission service in Delaware!
Sherri Meeks-Graham of Wilmington Delaware
"I wanted to follow-up to the reconditioning of my transmission you did in early April of this year at Benchmark Transmission Newark Delaware. it has been a month since I picked up my vehicle post the repair and things are running smoothly. It is a comfort to know that driving my Honda CRV, with the transmission work you have done and the excellent way you've taken care of me and my vehicle,it will continue to ride well for a long time to come. I appreciate your extending the initial warranty another year, since there was a problem with the bearing in the transmission last month. Though there was a problem with the transmission malfunctioning, your customer service has always been excellent! I will be sure to recommend Benchmark Transmission to anyone I know seeking transmission service in Delaware! "
We applaud your attention to detail, outstanding customer service, reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity and quality service!
James Schnatterer of Newark Delaware
"Integrity & Honesty is something that can be hard to find these days! Dante and his staff offer just that along with superb and quality service at Benchmark Transmission of Newark, DE. Having a daughter that just turned 16, we were faced not only putting her out on the roads, but finding a car that was safe and reliable for her to drive. Dante and staff were there to help us determine if our 1991 vehicle that needed a transmission was worth fixing and handing down to our daughter. Dante took the time to go over the vehicle to ensure safety and reliability. The transmission service they provided was OUTSTANDING quality and the car drives like new thanks to Benchmark. We can't thank Dante and his staff enough for being patient with us. His honesty in what needed to be done to make this car reliable enough to put our daughter in is something that we truly value. I applaud your attention to detail, outstanding customer service, reasonable pricing, honesty, integrity and quality service! We will continue to highly recommend your shop to anyone needed transmission work. James & Julie"
