Just make sure they do a good job, i've heard mixed reviews about them... I've heard that they are the worst place ever and they do a ****ty job, and i've also heard they are really reliable... Just make sure they do it right and don't rush it.

basically the way i understand is if your car needs body work then you are better off doing it yourself. and any prep work. but if you just need a simple spray then theyndo an ok job.

I didn't hear any bad reviews about maaco. All I really need is just a minor paint job. Hood, front bumper, and driver side to match the car. Never again will I paint my own pieces of the car lol. It was a big FAIL

Don't go to Maaco unless you have done the prep work and want a low quality paint job. I made that mistake. Find another shop and pay a little extra.

They are an example of you get what you pay for. In the owner's club for my last car, a guy got his resprayed there & it was not impressive. I wouldn't use them personally.

I went to macco for my old ricer a few years ago and I have to admit they did a pretty darn good job removed all dents and sprayed it well. $600 out the door... guess it really depends on who's doing it

They usually have a special around Xmas for $249 or $499. That's paint no bodywork. I've also have heard mixed reviews.

Yeah with their $249 special they forget to tell you that it's 150 dollars for them to prep it (quick wet sand)...also $30 per ding removal and $75 extra per door jamb ( I had a 4 door so I passed on that). They also painted mine the wrong color so I got an xtra coat for free. Still wasn't a bad job for 600 bucks
