    why would you buy a car if you live in the city you have the great and reliable transit system and tons of bike lanes? for Hipsters is a regular smorgasburg of opportunity to talk to strangers!

    Much more interesting stories in the LIC Post. Current headline reports on the arrest of a local exotic dancer arrested for a murder committed in Louisiana in 1984. These car dealer guys are nothing but scum and when convicted should be sentenced to hunt for rats at Zabar’s.

    I would like to take this opportunity to highlight something completely unrelated.

    Another crazy person pushes someone into the train tracks. Stop giving the Chaaange bum money you dumbass enablers. Stop giving him pizza and butcher block food and drinks and MONEY. just STOP.

    HE is the one who is shitting all under the train.

    You don’t pick up after your dog you get fined and a nice note from an angry passive aggressive tenant. but if a grown man shits in the street its ignored. disgusting and pathetic. Take back your town from this terrorizing dangerous nut bag.

    Ye have been warned.

    I worked for this place for a few months and quickly got out of there once I saw what they do to their customers. After the finance manager Joe left (who was always honest and a great guy and carried that dealership on his back for years) the place went downhill. They have pre-printed out carfax reports… I have seen them be the bank where the customer is desperate for a car and makes insanely high payments to the dealership on vehicles only worth 3 or 4 grand. I saw a sales person take 10’s of thousands in deposits promising the customer they would get a 30k car for only 15k – and bounced with the cash and because the customer conspired with the salesman to basically steal (no matter what the salesman told them its still theft) there was nothing the cops could do. Danny and his handsome wife had this coming ever since they told that first customer “the car is PERFECT no accidents” – every car there had at LEAST one accident. Please people READ what your signing and walk away from anyone who talks too fast or makes promises to you they will fulfill and refinance the loan for a better rate in 6 months … Print out YOUR OWN CAR FAX – I have even seen FAKE carfax sites where the sales person logs on to a site looking like carfax. Anyone scammed by this place was those who were flying on the high of driving outta there in that Benz and will sign and agree to whatever just so they can get the keys and pick up their friends in the new ride. Also anyone offering you a deal that is impossible to get anywhere else, it usually means your the only one who will be sorry in the end. Danny (owner) pretends to not know what’s going on but he is the one buying the garbage vehicles and his wife makes the carfax reports. People come to this country and became millionaires because of the opportunities here and yet you got greedy and wanted more so … I hope you have someone to put money on your books while mr and mrs Danny are upstate for 25yrs. Rot … You deserve it

    Hey post, stop censoring MY posts. You want to have a forum go ahead but understand this you are a news site. The minute you start censoring topics that don’t break any rules of conduct and you become a slanted biased agenda ridden site.

    The same freedom of speech you enjoy to report is the same freedom I am exercising to post.

    That being said, Remove my post again and I won’t be visiting this site again.

    DANNY AND HIS HIDEOUS WIFE ARE THIEVES!! DANNY IS A PIECE OF CRAP DRUNK THAT ONLY BOUGHT “FRAME DAMAGED” CARS AS WE SAY IN THE BUSINESS WHICH MENT THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE CAR HAD BEEN COMPRAMISED DUE TO AN ACCIDENT! MEAN WHILE ALL THE ACCIDENT REPORTS FROM THE CARFAXES HAD BEEN PHOTO-SHOPPED OUT! ALL HIS CARS HAVE, HAD, AND WILL HAVE MECHANICAL PROBLEMS TOO. THE DMV, IRS, FBI, & CONSUMER AFFAIRS HAVE BEEN AFTER HIS SLEEZY ASS FOR YEARS! COPS WERE CALLED EVERYDAY TO THE DEALERSHIP, NOT TOO MENTION THE DOZENS OF COURT CASES AGAINST THEM. THEY STOLE SALES TAX MONEY, FAKE WARRANTY MONEY, FAKE WINDOW ETCHING FEES, AND THE LIST GOES ON. THEY BRIBED EVERYONE, YES BRIBED (TOP OFFICIALS)!! ANYONE WHO DEALT WITH HIM AS GONE OUT OF BUSINESS OR WERE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS! AKA FAKE NY STATE INSPECTIONS AND THE LIST GOES ON & ON.. IF HOOSHMAND (DANNY) WASN’T DRUNK HE WAS WHORING AROUND WITH NO DISREGARD FOR ANYTHING! THANKS TO ALL THE FRAUD DEALINGS THAT JAY (FINANCE MANAGER) DID FOR THEM, HOOSHMAND CURRENTLY OWNS A HUGE HOUSE IN KINGS POINT A VERY UPPER SCALE VILLAGE IN GREAT NECK ALONG WITH A FEW INCOME PROPERTIES IN OR AROUND THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD. ALL PROBABLY PURCHASED IN CASH FROM ALL THAT MONEY HE STOLE! KARAM IS A BITCH HOOOOSHY I HOPE YOU GET ALL THAT’S COMING TO YOU AND THEN SOME!!

A red flag there they decided to bring the car back for a check up (did it ever pass inspection???) they said everything was OK with the car and again my father kept the car… This January they received a $6,000 FEE (NO ONE KNOWS FOR WHAT) and they Immediatly returned the car but were supposed to get their down-payment as agreed on their contract ($3,500) TODAY 1/31/13 my father went to get his $$$ money back and they are NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!!!!

    I bought a car from them back in 2010. It was a nightmare!!! Joe Torrez should do more then 7 years!!! I wish i could be in court when they put him away!!! I had to fight !!! I called cops I did everything from calling my attorney to get my money back!! He was pissed off he even crused me out!!! Luckly the bank did not want to approve the loan because they were many red flags on the loan… He stated in the loan that the car had many extras and was trying to keep the down payment of $10,000.00.

    Jay Torres is a comete douche bag. He basically robbed $10,000 from my fiance by taking his $10,000 cash down payment and putting it in his pocket and then ADDED the 10,000 to our loan!!!! I guess our money is gone and its our loss but 7 years is not enough for him. He steels hard working peoples money. Put his ass away for life and I hope he gets raped everyday the same way he screwed so many innocent people for their money!!

    I am so happy to hear that all of (USA Auto Park a.k.a Auto Palace) have finally got caught up in there scandal. I have purchased a vehicle back in 2001 and have experienced the same in the so call refinancing and carfax B.S which messed up my credit. Danny and Jenny have always played the roll of not knowing what is going on in the dealership the same for those that work for them. It is all a team effort to jerk people to make fast cash because before they would finance anyone in house they would have to see Danny or jenny before the deal is made. I have learned a lot from my previous ordeals with this dealership.
