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 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."
The service from every employee at Benchmark Transmission is unbelievable. They are very trustworthy and fair.
Rodney Pett of Philadelphia Pennsylvania
"The service from every employee at Benchmark Transmission is unbelievable. They are very trustworthy and fair. I noticed that they treat every car as if its their own. The quality of work is unbeatable. I own three trucks. They first fixed my van. They are now working on my truck. It looks like my cars like to break down in the area of their auto repair shop in Wilmington~Newark Delaware and I don't blame them. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!"
Thank you so much for the great repair job your Wilmington repair shop performed on my transmission.

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."
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."
You have earned our trust not only in your integrity but in your knowledge of transmissions
Jersey City New Jersey
Laurie Hall of Jersey City New Jersey
"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. "
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 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 "
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!"
