Maaco - Harry Hines / Dallas Texas Informative - Maaco rip-off - $1000 for bodywork ,paint after 30 days rust shows
DALLAS, TEXAS -- Took 57 ford ranchero to tony @ harry hines Dallas tx location. Took 2 small sheets of paper for a reference as what was to be done. Tony walked around shaking his head like ok I see yeah needs this and that etc. All seemed right when I left it in his care. After completion it looks bad, paint doesn't cover and all I wanted was the flat black old school primer look. My 33 yr. Old son was w/me for the entire episode and all subsequent trips to the shop. When we went to pick up tony knew I was not happy at all especially after I went to the extra effort to go over everything individually getting his agreement and now the car is crappy all over. Bodywork looks like 10 yr. Old had tried it. Told him this was not acceptable and I would be bringing it back when the mechanicals were done. He asked me to bring it after they would be able to move it easier as it was not running when I left it for the work. Now this p-o-s says to the new owner [as he sold it to another towel headed jerk]i never agreed to do the bodywork w/ metal repair even tho clearly it shows right on the 2 sheets of paper he had for reference since he didn't put anything on the workorder [direct violation of deceptive trades act in Texas] for obvious reasons but hey his biz, I knew what I told him, my son knows what was said and for him to now take this position is ludicrous at best since he didn't write anything on his workorder he obviously had to know what to do, what color etc or he would not have a clue as to what to do to the car .
Since he asked for an exact amount of $1000 even, i feel he was just committing theft by deception because for what has been done really isn't worth anything because now someone has to go take the crap out where it was supposed to have been repaired w/metal all he had done was put some glob of bondo in there, halfass sanded it and sprayed the wrong paint on it and sent me home with it saying he would make it right when I got it back to him after the mechanicals were completed. Taking this to the atty. General for immediate prosecution before he leaves the country w/my money.
