NEWNAN, GEORGIA -- I took my car to Maaco in Newnan, GA because I saw a TV ad for a $249 paint job. I couldn't believe anybody could paint a car for that price. I priced the paint at the automotive paint store and it was $175 just for the paint. That didn't include the primer, clear or any material for prep. The salesman told me the TV ad didn't include prep but they had a prep package on sale for $99. I got my whole car painted for $349 it looks awesome. I had gone to another bodyshop to get a quote and they told me it was going to cost $2500. I mean wholly cow Maaco did it for a fraction of what the other place quoted me. If you want a nice job for a great price go to Maaco1 Replies - Latest reply on 08/26/2010Add reply
WINNIPEG -- I am reading all these complaints about Maaco's poor paint jobs and that is not my experience at all. I fixed up an old rust bucket, sanded and prepped it my self and they painted it and did a color change. The only complaint is that the paint went on a little thin. But still it was a nice paint job. Took it back after I bashed up the front fender, they resprayed it for only $50.00. Mis-matched the color, admitted the mistake and re-did it right. The next year took the car back for another paint job and again they did a great job. I have an old truck I am fixing up. I will definitely be back for another $300.00 paint job. Can't beat it!3 Replies - Latest reply on 11/18/2006Add reply

I spent almost 2000.00 Dollars in this shop. I was told my car would be ready in 5 Days, it took over 2 weeks. I came to get my car and refused the car cause the hood was done so badly. Then one of the new parts they put on my car flew off on the highway and they refused to take responibility for the damage. I am in the process of suing them now. Don't go there I have warned you!!! 3 Replies - Latest reply on 08/25/2012Add reply
KING OF PRUSSIA, PENNSYLVANIA -- Maaco franchising is a joke. I had a Maaco for a couple of years. I have never experienced a group of self promoting, incompetent, blameless people anywhere. This group of pompous windbags watch you lose all you've worked for in life with absolutely no shame. As you are working 14-16 hours a day they are working 9-5 and can not be bothered to return a phone call. When you lose it all they just keep going. Maaco franchising the kings of incompetence. They are so bad it would be funny if you weren't the one losing everything. 1 Replies - Latest reply on 10/23/2012Add reply
FRAMINGHAM, MASSACHUSETTS -- Maaco advertised a bumper paint job for $179.00. I visit the Maaco facility in Framingham, MA and was told that the price only included the paint. Total for the work would be $379.00. I*'m quite certain I heard the commercial on the radio. I don't recall hearing that the price only included paint. Apparently the sign on their wall did state in finme print that it covered paint only.

I don't go to a clothing store and buy a shirt on sale and then at checkout am told that the sale price only included the sleeves.
Very deceptive and dishonest. I will never again visit a Maaco shop.

NEWNAN, GEORGIA -- Well I was having a lot of problems with my vehicle took into Maaco in Newnan Ga... biggest mistake I ever made...

MANCHESTER, CONNECTICUT -- My husband brought my 1974 vw to be painted and they did a terrible job. First of all, He never received an estimate in writing one employee said one price and the other one said a different price we brought the car 0n 4-24-08, they promised it was going to be done in 4 days the car was done on 5-06-08.The car was all dirty inside, the driver door did not want to open and the horn did not work and the clutch wasn't working right. My husband doesn't speak much English and when he tried to explain they started making fun of the car and laughing at him and saying that it was an old car in a very disrespectful way.
