From The New York Shitty Inbox: Two Guys Auto

D writes:  My wife and I were recently totally screwed by Two Guys Auto on McGuinness.  They did about $1200 of unauthorized work, charged us for authorized work they didn’t do, and did some things dangerously bad, not to mention getting belittled when confronting them about it.

Anyway, looking on-line (unfortunately after the fact), I notice a BBB rating of F and a lot of similar stories on Yelp/Citysearch (next to suspiciously similar praises but that’s another story).

I’m assuming with the number of folks around the hood reading your blog, there may be people with similar experiences.  I’m hoping to connect with other folks who’ve had problems to establish a documented pattern of fraud here, so that we can have the DMV investigate this as opposed to individual he said/she said type cases…

Thanks a bunch and hopefully my next tip/email will be on something fun like kittens!

I’ve looked at the Yelp and Citysearch reviews for Two Guys Auto. The Citysearch reviews are by and large positive; the Yelp reviews, on the other hand, are either very positive or negative. Here are some examples to give you an idea of what I am talking about.

I’ll be forthright: one of the reasons I live in New York City is I do not have to own an car. As tatty as our rapid transit system seems (and is) I’d rather wait for a bus or even the G train (when it is running, that is) than deal with the manifold annoyances that come with automobile ownership. But that’s my position; I have the presence of mind to know that some people have elected not to make this decision or their place/line of work does not permit this “luxury”. Therefore I tender D’s inquiry to you, dear readers:

  1. Have you had problems/issues with Two Guys Auto?
  2. Do you have a recommendation for a reliable mechanic in north Brooklyn/Long Island City for Woody?

If so, please shoot D an email at: twoguysproblem (at) gmail (dot) com.

Thanks!
