Maaco Auto Paint - Paint Prep Work
Sanding and Painting My Car
IRVING, TEXAS -- I just had my car painted at the Maaco shop in Irving Texas. The paint job for the most part was good. There are three levels of prep work on the car that you can get. They are $125.00, $199.00 or $223.00. I chose the $199.00 which included extra sanding on chips or other areas where needed. There were several places on my car where the chips did not appear to have been sanded at all.
When I pointed this out to my salesman he was not very concerned. His response was, if it starts to peal before the warranty expires bring it back. To me the quality of a paint job is the prep work.
This is not a priority to Maaco. I also feel the prep work for paint should be included in the price of the paint job, not an up charge.
