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!!!"
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."
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! "
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 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."
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 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! "
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. "
