A Honest Review of the Fayetteville North Carolina Maaco! *** 2004 Nissan Titan - Entire Vehicle Painted (Color Change/ Metallic Flake) * Dents Dings Repaired * Rock Chips Repaired * Door Jambs Repaired * Painted Aftermarket Body Panels I Installed *** Once my truck was taken home and washed, I took several photographs to document it's transformation. I have emailed them to Maaco and should they decide to upload them, they will be viewable to all that visit their facebook page. *** Total cost for my paint job was $ 1,251.00. I chose paint code 42154 / Metallic Flake. This was a Urethane Paint with Integrated Clear. If anyone were to ask me today whether or not I believed I got my money's worth, my answer would be absolutely. (Take note that I sanded nearly all original clear coat off my truck before I dropped it off. The clear coat was not damaged before I removed it). The paint job I received produces a shine greater than the day I purchased my truck new. I have photographs of my truck to back this statement up. The dent and ding repair completed on my truck looks fantastic. There are no waves in their body work and the only way you would ever know there was any damage was if you were to view it in it's previous state. They addressed the rock chips I showed them and you would never know they were there. To be quite honest, I did not know what to expect of a paint job through Maaco(since you hear of so many mixed reviews). I asked several questions through email and in person about the entire process so that I could establish a realistic expectation for project completion. I was greeted with professionalism on each request (and I contacted them about once a day with questions for an entire week). Maaco was either extremely busy or running behind when I dropped off my truck and this led to a delay in processing. BUT, once they started working on my truck, they maintained contact with me on a near daily basis and provided photographs of the entire process. Overall the paint job I received from Maaco was outstanding. The metallic flake was flawless and provided depth in my paint job I did not expect. I would be lying if I did not mention that I found a few tiny issues with my paint job, however it should be noted that they are very minor in my humble opinion. It would appear that my door jambs were still a bit wet when my doors were closed and this led to a few issues (not noticed until I returned home). I located a small discolored area in one of my fenders and addressed it with the business before my departure. Management was apologetic and offered to correct it without question. I discussed a drop off time with the business and left content. I believe this Maaco is capable of addressing any need you have and if you are seeking auto body work or a paint job, you should drop by and check them out. Ask as many questions as you need. Establish a realistic expectation of the job to be completed. If you pay for the minimum, you receive the minimum. Repairing a hundred rock dings and addressing the few dents you have requires time and money. If you spend the little extra, you will be much happier with the end result. Remember, a new paint job will expose all these issues.
This is my first review for Lafayette Ford/Lincoln as I had never been to this dealership for sales/service/parts. I happened upon a commercial for "TrueCar" and although the site showed NO "TrueCar" dealers in the area, I received a call from Lafayette Ford, from a gentleman named Darren Dennis. Darren is 1 of the most personable, energetic, and genuine "sales" persons (no pressure; did not feel like a car dealership!!!) I have ever dealt with in the car buying business. There were a few times I had to wait but that's to be expected, and Darren never gave up on trying to give me freshly baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies, coffee, and water! When it was time to talk numbers, Darren introduced me to William, who saw that I was reading and asked if I was in a 4 year college. I answered yes and provided the required proof. I tell you, yesterday was my lucky day!!! Not only did I get the FMCC (Ford Motor Credit) rebate, I received additional incentive for being a f/t, 4 yr college student. The latter paid for the balance owed on my old vehicle that USAA declared a total loss. These guys truly impressed me as did a gentleman named Kenneth Merritt, whom I had a very pleasant conversation with during one of my idle times. I was just so impressed (as you can probably tell from the length of this review!) and could not stop smiling throughout the whole transaction; from START to FINISH!!!! If you're in the market, don't even think about going out of town thinking you'll get a better deal/price; Lafayette Ford/Lincoln is THE PLACE TO BE!!! Keep up the fantastic work Darren, William and Kenneth; I love my new "family"!!! :-)
I had my car painted at Maaco and I absolutely love it , they went above and beyond to make sure that i was happy with the job that they did. I am constantly getting comments on my hot pink car whether it be at stores, at stoplights, going through drive through where ever im at my car is getting looks and cards from people who want to help make my "awesome color pop" with window tint rims ect... I get rave reviews from people in car clubs and people in customs shops who say maaco is horrible then I tell them thats where i got my car painted and they eat their words. Seriously if you see my car out and about walk over an give it a look i assure you everyone else does. A quick note if you want it done fast this is not the place to go they stay packed with jobs and what not and the wait is normally 10-15 buisness days which isnt bad but if you expect overnight service this is not the place to go, if you want quality at an affordable price with a bit of a wait Maaco is the place to go!
