I truly appreciate the professional manner and service that you and your technicians exhibited.
Charles Miller of Exton Pennsylvania
"You and your service team did an automatic transmission repair on my 2005 Nissan Armada in February 2010 and I wanted to send you a personal email thanking you for a job well-done. I truly appreciate the professional manner and service that you and your technicians exhibited. I just arrived home today from a 1500 mile trip to the Carolinas and the car ran great. Thanks for the great service. If I ever find the need for transmission service I will give your shop a call. Thank you. "

I decided to get it checked out by an expert at Benchmark Transmission before I did any damage
Wilbur Rivera of Newark Delaware
"Mr. Dante Principe Jr.,Two weeks ago, I took my 98 VW Golf to the Smith VW dealer for a non-transmission related problem. Upon completion of that work, the dealer told me that my 2nd gear on my Automatic Transmission was sticking and that I needed a new transmission. I told them I did not want them to do that type of work on my car. I decided to get it checked out by an expert at Benchmark Transmission before I did any damage.I looked in the Yellow Pages and decided to call your office and get an estimate. You told me that I should bring the car in and allow you check it out at "no charge". You mentioned it could be something simple which would greatly reduce the repair cost. Last week I Brought my car in to your shop in Newark Delaware. You checked the car and found out the programming on the throttle body and the transmission where not responding. I think you relearned these components and you fixed my car. When you called me, you told me that there was no charge for the work you did to my car. As I drove my car home and felt how smoothly the transmission shifted from gear to gear: I immediately started to "thank god" for taking my car to your shop and dealing with you. As I write this note to you, I realized how rare it is to find people like you that are willing to help people in trouble without taking advantage of them and/or expecting anything in return.Sincerely yoursWilber Rivera"
Benchmark Transmission gives me the confidence that as long as I want to keep my vehicles, they will keep them running good condition.
Rod Pelkey of Newark Delaware
"I am the owner of 3 late model Ford Explorers (92, 93, 95) and a 99 Subaru Legacy. I have been dealing with Benchmark, Dante (Owner) for over 8 years. I have not alway taken the best care of my vehicles in terms of preventive maintenance, and checking into the little noises that give you that feeling that something is wrong, therefore I've experienced more problems than necessary. Despite my neglect, whenever I've taken my cars to Benchmark, I have always been treated to the best of service. Benchmark has both replaced and repaired transmissions in my vehicles, and has done wonderful work, and at a reasonable cost. I have never been dissatisfied, Dante is always willing to work with me. I have nearly 300,000 miles on one explorer, 200,000 on anther, and over 150,000 on the Legacy. Benchmark Transmission gives me the confidence that as long as I want to keep my vehicles, they will keep them running good condition. Thanks Benchmark!"
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. "
Our gas mileage improved, shifting was much better, and we couldn't be happier.
Charles Baynard of Henderson Maryland
"To the Principe boys: We brought our 33' RV to Newcastle for transmission repair and an engine tune-up in June. We then drove it to Maine, about 600 miles or so, from Maryland and back. We never had one problem!! Our gas mileage improved, shifting was much better, and we couldn't be happier. You guys are the greatest. We will recommend you to our friends and, if we need any work done, we'll be back!! Thanks so much for your friendly and professional service. Helen and Charles B."
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"
I was doubtful such an extensive repair, such as mine,could turn out as well as it did. After 5 months and over 4000 miles it still performs flawlessly.
Joseph Schiavi of Wilmington Delaware
"Dear Mr. Joe Principe,I wanted to thank you for the superb job you did rebuilding my 1997 Toyota 4 Runner at your Wilmington Transmission shop. I was doubtful such an extensive repair, such as mine,could turn out as well as it did. After 5 months and over 4000 miles it still performs flawlessly. It is quiet now as I remember it when new.Again,my thanks; I will refer your Benchmark Transmission Shop at every opportunity. Very Truly YoursJoseph R. Schiavi "
We will continue to bring our vehicles to Benchmark Transmission and recommend you to our friends and family.
Johnna Kriner of Hockessin Delaware
"Dante, thank you for the wonderful service you have provided throughout the years. The transmission work you and your crew completed on our Yukon and Blazer, and Jeep. have been efficient, honest and reliable. The price has always been fair. We will continue to bring our vehicles to Benchmark Transmission and recommend you to our friends and family."
I will be sure to make reference Benchmark transmission to my friends and family.
Russ Meredith of Newark Delaware
"I wanted to thank you for your excellent service regarding the transmission problem with my 1991 Dodge Caravan. I'm not an automotive expert, and it was refreshing to find an automotive shop with up front problem diagnosis and easy to understand terminology when discussing the problem with the customer. I really appreciated the patience of yourself and the mechanics at Benchmark Transmission when I returned the vehicle assuming that the transmission still had problems; and I respected your offer to refer the vehicle and your honesty in identifying the further problem of a clogged fuel filter. The van has run very well since its most recent repair. I will be sure to make reference Benchmark transmission to my friends and family. "
