    Maaco screwed up....

    So i took my car to maaco to have it painted after i saw how good of job they did on my friends da, well the rear lower quarter panels were re done way wrong. i took it back and asked them to fix THEIR mistake and they want me to pay half just because i had looked at the car when they were doing the body work and it wasnt painted or even primed so i didn't say anything then because i wasn't sure if it was complete. With that said, does anyone know how i can get around this? Im not paying for someone else's mistake and idk if i just need to bitch more or what but it needs to be fixed. Any advice?

      Did the manager or paint tech guy told you to pay half. If it's the paint tech guy.. ask to speak to the manager. Maybe he'll redo it on their expense.

        What exactly is the problem? "way wrong" doesn't say much.

              I wasn't expecting an award winning paint job, but like i said, my freinds quarter pannels are perfect and his were rotted out way more than mine. i spoke to the shop manager and he was the one who actually did the body work, he even said himself when i pointed it out that it was wrong and still wants me to pay half, the whole thing already cost me 2700 dollars, and im not forking out more to them.

                It curves in alot and it doesn't have the part in front of the wheel the matches the front fender behind the front wheel, if that makes any sense, its hard to explain.

                  pics arent that great but you can see, the right side is really bad and if you look at my car from the front it looks like a huge dent on both sides

                    Holy crap! You paid $2700 for a paint job/body work from Maaco? With that price.. you can get a really decent paint job at a real paint shop.. damn! Hope everything works out for you dude.

                      I can't see anything in those pics. And if you really paid $2700 for a maaco paint job... man, I don't even know what to say. That was a horrible move, you should be able to get a pretty decent paint job for that from a reputable shop.

                      They even painted your exhaust! I guess if you paid that much then you have the right to be complaining. I didn't even know it was possible to spend that much at Maaco...

                        You could of got a really nice paintjob from any real paint shop for what you paid. I didn'y even think it was possible to spend half of that price at maaco. I hope everything works out and for that price it shouuld be damm near flawless. Please don't give them anymore money and call and complain everyday untill the problem is fixed for free or threaten to sue them

                                      damn bro, i'm sorry to hear you spent that much. i spent less than that and that was with body welding and rust removal and i think i got my money's worth.

                                          Complain with the BBB in your state about the over charge and shitty work. you will have a better chance. also take that estimate to a few body shops and have them look at. what was there hourly rate for prep,paint and body work?

                                            Kb8thekid- your car looks really good, and thats all i was expecting when i dropped mine off, how much did you pay? If you dont mind me asking.

                                            I plan on contacting the bbb if things don't go well with the big shots, i believe the labor rate was 53 an hour.

                                              Damn, 2700 for a single stage paintjob. OUCH.

                                              i payed $600 with body work for my civic, single stage paintjob at maaco.



                                              they probably charged that much because of your rusted quarter panel, but instead of actually cutting and replacing it they probably just used bondo, which is wrong.. lol

                                              i'd be super pissed if i was in your shoes.

                                                No they did actually cut it out and re weld it, prob is they did it all f'd up so it looks like a huge dent. And beleive me, im not happy at all. Thats a dope lookin ef though, props for the old school
