: : Has any one done this horrible thing to their car, "get maaco"!. Mine looks like an old beat up rusted (only on the outside) bathtub. So with limited budget and knowing that the car is in the streets in New York City, I need a paint job that will hold but doesn't need to be "super" nice. The question is (finally) has anyone used maaco ? And how was it?, or do you have a recommendation for a shop in the city?

: Remember you get what you pay. Used them on some of my farm vehicles and wouldn't go beyond that. Paint jobs had runs, they didn't put all my parts back on and didn't secure others. They were farm trucks that don't get out in public much which is a good thing from the looks.

: I wouldn't send in my 2002 do a discount shop.

: Good luck

Maaco is a hit or miss. My father in law, at my recommendation went to maaco. They did a very good job. The paint cost about $500.00, but there was no boby work done to the car. I've seen porsches, bmw and mercedez at this shop. They even claim they are the best maaco in the U.S. It all depends on the workers and what kind of work you want done. If your 02 have a lot of rust, maybe maaco is not for you. If you go the maaco route, it would help to strip the car so they can get all of the body. Good luck
