Is Maaco Collision Repair Any Good?

I've read about how bad their painting is, but haven't read much about their body work as far as dents and the like. Some of you may remember that post I made about that dent someone put in my car,and I took it to maaco a few dats ago,and they were going to do it for about $80. I assume that is before tax. Prior to this, I took it to another body shop,and they said 254.
When I went to Maaco, they showed me a car that they painted,and it didn't look that bad. Not to me anyway...

Which should I choose?

You get what you pay for. They have cheap ways of painting and expensive. It's whatever you want to pay depends on the finish. If you go in for there 99 dollar paint deal what kind of paint do you think you'll get?

Better question is, can you afford to fix what they mess up?

Well... I really can't afford fixing this little **** up right here, but I love my car,and this just ruins it for me, because my car doesn't have any dents on it but this. I thought about just letting it go until I can actually afford it, but that probably will be years from now. -_-'

I went there once to get a quote on my Neon. They do an entire car for as little as 349, but they also have premium paint jobs that cost many times that. You would think that the more expensive options are quality jobs, but idk... the mere fact that they offer poor quality options (granted for low ball prices) makes me want to stay away. If I had a paint shop I would ONLY want to deliver first rate work.

A monkey could paint a car, its the prep work that determins how good the paint job turns out. Usually these cheap ass paint jobs they barley sand your car and just spray some paint on it. I would not recommend this! You get what you pay for!!!!!
