I felt the need to respond to the one negative review about Maaco in Portland Maine from 2007, as now in 2012 our experience was quite different. I saw that negative review online after Maaco already had our car and I was just looking online for their phone number to see when the car would be ready. Had I read that review before taking our car there I probably would have gone elsewhere. Our car is a 2002 Jetta that "Morong VW" in Falmouth had just replaced a rusted fender on that was still under warranty. We decided to just have the whole car painted as it was showing its age from living up here in Maine. We were originally going to have the body shop at Morong do the job, but it was going to be just to expensive, and THEY recommended possibly looking into Macco for the job as we did. As it turned out they were very friendly and helpful there at Macco and took the time to explain and answer questions about the different options available. They offer 6 different levels of painting to choose from depending on what your needs may be. We chose the 4th level up which was a Urethane + IC that does not include a clear coat but looks as if it has. It was explained to us that the doors would not come off for this level of paint job. The levels above ours did but for more money as you would expect. The job also required some minor body work to take care of a number of dings and surface rust on the front of hood form rocks. We just got the car back yesterday and I must say that I was more than pleased. One would never guess that the car had been repainted, it just looked new! No over-spray seen anywhere (and I REALLY looked), no runs, no holidays...they did a fantastic job, and I'm a fussy guy! And one last thing...there was quite a bit of time from when I first took the car in for an estimate to when the job actually got done. As we were there to pick up the car they told us that they were having a sale on that paint job. This reduced our bill by about $200 from what we were expecting to pay, and that they certainly could have still charged us!
THANK YOU MACCO OF PORTLAND
