I dropped off my 1982 Buick Rivera to be repainted on 2-13 09. A few hail dent were to be taken out also. Got it back today 3-14-09

I didn't notice the quality of the work until I got it home and dusted it off. It was very dusty.

I have never seen so many paint bubbles on one car. It's on every part of the car. It looks like they took a buffer in hopes to make them less visible. All that did was break the bubbles.

I have paid them already and it wasn't cheap. I will take it back Monday and can only hope they will do me right this time..I'm old but not blind

Sounds like they had water in the air lines. When dealing with a cheap paint shop check the work already completed they usually have a few fished cars to look at. I had my car painted at maaco and it took 3 shops before I found a good painter.


Your pictures don't show the bubbles well. For a "cheap" paint job, what I'm looking for, it looks OK.

I haven't a gotten a quote from them yet, but if they aren't at least 50% below places I've got positive referals from I certainly wouldn't bother using Maaco, especially from what I've read here.

I've learned you can't expect a quality result from places that focus on cheap. Even if you pay more. Just doesn't work out. Dentist, Law, Paint, ... Be happy with cheap, or go to a recommended quality place and bend over.

Good Luck.
