have had nothing but the best service from Joe at Benchmark. I heard about them from a friend (the best kind of referral) and I was not disappointed. I had my car fixed at Benchmark a few years ago and it has been going strong ever since
Jean O'Malley of Bear Delaware
"I have had nothing but the best service from Joe at Benchmark. I heard about them from a friend (the best kind of referral) and I was not disappointed. I had my car fixed at Benchmark a few years ago and it has been going strong ever since. When the transmission on my husband's truck started to go there was no question where we would take it. Joe is professional and knowledgeable. "
We will continue to bring our vehicles to Benchmark Transmission and recommend you to our friends and family.

I have dealt with Benchmark transmission in Newark Delaware for over ten years, and the crew has been no less than the best
Thomas DelGenio of Newark Delaware
"I have dealt with Benchmark transmission in Newark Delaware for over ten years, and the crew has been no less than the best. Don and crew put pro in professional. The work is done right the first time, the warranty honored each time! My 1989 Dodge van has over 200,000 miles and this crew has taken care of us for approximately half of that."
As a mechanic I am confident coming to your business.
Stan Kaminski of Newark Delaware
"I just wanted to say thanks for fixing all my transmission problems over the many years I have used your shop. Whether its was front wheel drive in my wife's 1999 Buick or my rear wheel drive 1968 Pontiac Le Mans, you always came through. You guys are always thorough and the work was done right. Tell your crew I appreciate their good work. As a mechanic I am confident coming to your business. I recommend it to my friends should their vehicles need servicing. Keep up the good work."
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 would like to extend my thanks to Rich and Don for quickly diagnosing my daughters Toyota problem. It was more severe than any of us expected. Your shop was right up front with me on my options since we are so far away. They kept our vehicle save and secure for over a week and never asked

"I would like to extend my thanks to Rich and Don for quickly diagnosing my daughters Toyota problem. It was more severe than any of us expected. Your shop was right up front with me on my options since we are so far away. They kept our vehicle save and secure for over a week and never asked for anything in return. To the entire staff in Middletown - THANK YOU."
It was a pleasure to deal with Dante and Benchmark Transmissions.

"It was a pleasure to deal with Dante and Benchmark Transmissions. I hope you commend him, as well as their mechanics, on my appreciation."
It was a very pleasant experience dealing with Benchmark Transmission.
Carlos Rodriguez of Newark Delaware
"I hope this letter is able to transmit to you and your staff at Benchmark Transmission, the complete satisfaction I have received from your outstanding and professional service, as well as my sincere gratitude for your honesty and your dedication to providing your customers with the best job you can possibly do... I had tried several times at several places to ask for just a few minutes to be able to "show" the car's problem, but nobody would give me such time, but you. When you said "sure no problem, we'll go for a test drive together", I knew you were the right person and felt immediate confidence in you and in that whatever you found to be the problem you would do the right and honest work. I was right. It was a very pleasant experience dealing with Benchmark Transmission. I wish there were more human beings like you; truly, the world would be a better place."
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"
I can recommend Benchmark Transmission without reservation. It's a pleasure dealing with you guys.
Robert Wickes of Landenberg Pennsylvania
"I am writing to offer my comments on the transmission service I have received from Benchmark Transmission. Benchmark has consistently stood behind their lifetime warranty which I purchased for my rebuilt transmission! When the small stainless steel bearing in the transmission failed at 270,000 miles, you diagnosed the problem and fixed it, all under the Benchmark warranty. You and the crew at Benchmark Transmission also correctly diagnosed the failure in the drivetrain center carrier bearing, which was causing annoying noise and vibration. Replacing the driveshaft assembly corrected the problem. Throughout my relationship with Benchmark Transmission I have been struck by your commitment to customer satisfaction, to staying with the problem and "getting it right" . To those of us who are committed to keeping a car running beyond 100,000 miles, I can recommend Benchmark Transmission without reservation. It's a pleasure dealing with you guys."
