Auto Painting Process Step 1: Body Repair - Worried about those small dents and unsightly scratches ruining your paint job? Our body repair technicians have mastered the method of eliminating those blemishes down to a Five-Step Process to ensure that your finish is free from those small dents and unsightly scratches. Step 2: Surface Preparation - You know those chips, scratches, cracks and excessive peeling on your vehicle? If left untreated and exposed to the elements over time, these conditions could ultimately ruin your paint job. At Maaco, our estimators examine your vehicle and suggest condition repairs. We offer affordable surface prep options that ensure your MAACOVER looks great. A little surface repair before the paint goes on can ensure it holds that gloss and shine for years to come. Step 3: Surface Sealer - Sealer plays that all-important role of establishing a barrier between the old and new paint. This ensures consistent color and a higher gloss throughout the entire painted surface. At Maaco we offer 3 grades of sealer. The right choice is all about durability, and ultimately the amount of prep work needed for your particular vehicle. When it comes to the durability of your vehicle's paint, sealer helps keep consistent shine long after the job is done. Step 4: Paint Services - We offer three paint packages tailored to your specific needs and budget concerns: Basic, Preferred and Premium. What makes each of the three services unique all comes down to two factors: Longevity of the paint, which includes warranty/durability, and the appearance of the paint, which includes gloss, color match, and metallic appearance. Step 5: Protection & Services - A great paint job deserves great protection. We often apply clear coats to our paint jobs to not only protect the paint, but to ensure an accurate gloss match and an overall seamless repair.

We took in our son's 20 year-old Honda Accord for the basic, low-cost paint job. It was looking pretty sad and my husband had made it worse by trying to sand out some bad areas and repaint with matching touch up spray paint (bad idea). We were absolutely stunned by the results. The car is beautiful. My son said he didn't even recognize it when he picked it up--it was so nice! He could not believe it was the same car. He goes outside, 2 weeks later, and just looks at it--he is finally inspired to take better care of it since it looks so nice now. Seriously, we were dubious based on some of the less-then-stellar reviews here on Yelp, but we took a chance as Maaco had the best deal out there and for a 20-year old beater, we didn't want to spend a lot. They had it done in 4 business days, as promised. It looks brand new. Even my husband, who is very finicky about these things, was very pleased with the result. I have no problem recommending this center to anyone. We are very, very happy with the paint job, the service and employees at Maaco on Kearny Villa Road. You guys rock!

Excellent Minor Body Repair! They did a great job doing some minor body repair to my car's right rear fender. They fixed the dent, matched the paint color perfectly, and came in at 70% of what 3 other body shops gave me for an estimate. My car looks beautiful again, thanks to Bob and his crew!

Brought them my old Dodge van that was rusting away in my back yard. They actually welded a new drip rail on, fixed all the dents, repaired the slidding door mechanism and finished with a new paint job (including the grill). I couldn't be more happy, my van looks better than it did brand new. All for a reasonable price, I strongly recommend this shop! Thanks Maaco.

My paint job looked great! I ...

My paint job looked great! I kept my car in a garage for 2 years after I received the paint job. Since I lived in San Diego it did not rain but maybe 3 times a year. I got stationed in Kentucky and did not keep my car in a garage anymore. I started to get about an inch of water in my floorboard of my new mustang and took it in to get it checked out. Auto dealer advised me that since the paint job was oversprayed where the window seal goes and caused it to leak severely. My receipt stated that the leak was due to the bad paint job. I contacted the Maaco i used and he told me he would pay half of the 220 dollars that it took to find and fix the leak. Since it was garage kept and i never had it in the rain I did not discover the leak until almost 3 years later but the car dealer stated why the leak occurred and I feel that Maaco should pay for the entire bill not just half.

Affordable - Quality Car Repair

i was involved in a pretty major accident last week. i need my car so i was panicked at the thought of going without it for any length of time! my tow truck driver recommended i take it to maaco kearny mesa. i searched them out on the internet and found a few bad reviews. i called the BBB and found out they were in excellent standing. so i took a chance and had them repair my car. GREAT JOB. the bodywork and paint job turned out great! you cant even tell my 2007 saturn was ever damaged. AFFORDABLE AND GREAT QUALITY WORK!!!
