So, everyone I have shown this paintjob to has said it sucked. So I Mapquest another shop today and go over there to get an estimate to fix it. And when I mention Maaco, the guy say's,
And I say yeh, that's him. Turns out my "sales guy" was the owner. "Yeah, he's a good guy. It's a good job for what you paid ... you should be happy. We start at .." and I kid you not these 2 guys said in unicen "$2500 a job" and they said I need to give him a chance to cure the situation if it's within 50 miles or small claims will just throw it out.
You know what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna wash and wax my 95, and drive over there, and show him what a good paint job is. And try and settle this. I want a discount at least, for the prep work HE SOLD ME that never got done, and I want the runs fixed, and the broken parts replaced.
The guy I talked to today from Maaco said in a very angry manner, when I threatened to challenge the charge against my credit card (it went something like this):
You've made up your mind. That's what the courts are for. Take it to small claims court.
Me: Don't jump to conclusions .... if you reverse the charge to my credit card, I might forget about it.
Him: Well, I can't fix it, until the paint cures.
Me: The whole job needs to be done over, do you hear me? You defrauded me. Or, you made an honest mistake and forgot to prep ..
Him: No ... you've made up your mind. That's what the courts are for.
Me: You lied to me, from the start. You ripped me off. I told you that I was going to sell this Jeep ... and now I gotta wait 6 weeks for you to fix stuff you were supposed to do 2 months prior? I told you I'm not bringing in the Jeep on the 7th to be fixed, because I don't trust you.
And the entire time, he's yelling bring it to court, bring it to court!
Well ....let's just say, I get free legal advice. He better hope it never makes it to court. What am I supposed to do, trying to sell this Jeep now. "Maaco promised to fix it." That's all I can tell people.
I'm prolly gonna take a big loss.
