We took our 94 Honda Prelude to Macco 3 weeks ago to get the paint redone.
The sales guy at the front counter told us we were paying $689.00 for a perfect COMPLETE
paint job.We changed the color to blue from red,they charged us an additional 200.00 for a color change. Well now here is the problem, the car was finished 5 days later BUT it was not complete!!
The door jams were still red,the trunk ,sunroof and under the hood all red!!
Also the top moldings near the sunroof were supposed to be painted to match....believe it or not..still red and partial black, plus there was a big strip of red along the rear bottom that was missed (Helen Keller would not have missed this) and blue paint on the exhaust pipes. We left the car until they finished the job and said we would return the next day to pick up the vehicle.
The next day when we returned, the strip was fixed... [continued below]....
.....but nothing else. They claimed that all Honda cars have black top molding and they never paint them. This is not true all Preludes have the top trim painted to match.
They wanted another 600.00 to complete the car...so the car was not complete, my girlfriend cried all the way home feeling victimized by the whole ordeal. There is orange peel all over the car and light paint all over the edges a spray can job would have looked better for very little money.The car has been sitting since the whole incident,
I took it back today (9/22/2011) met with Lew the owner....same story won't finish the job just lame excuses and wanting more money, I am done I will NEVER take another car to them and neither should you....FALSE AND MISLEADING BUSINESS PRACTICES!!!
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR..DO NOT USE MAACO...UH OH GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!
