Just horrible! I took a chance after reading the reviews because they gave me a great price. I can confirm that the bad reviews are true. The car was repainted in just 24 hours to my surprise but when I got there my heart sunk. Dark spots deep into the paint in the rear of the car, cracks, chipped portion of the left door, they sanded part of my headlight, painted over rubber trims, and insult to injury- they put back the mitshubishi logo on the trunk slanted. The guy told me to bring back the car in 30 days to have it retouched. I am affraid its going to end up worst. This place should be shut down and reported to the proper authorities.

On 11/29/2008 I took my1997 Oldsmobile into Econo Auto Painting of Winter Haven INC for a complete Paint Job, Upon picking up the vehicle the new paint was marred by the negligence of the staff of Econo, I notified Mike Garvin Manager in person and also in writing, 1/8/2009 Vehicle roof was suppose to be refinished ,1/10/09 upon picking it up again the damage was not repaired and the vehicle looked worse ,once again Mr Garvin was notified and the Vehicle was scheduled to be repainted, on 2/14/09 Vehicle was repainted but left outside while paint was not dry and when I arrived to pick it up it was covered in Bird fecees which ate into the fresh paint, once again Mr Garvin was notified in person in front of a witness, he promised to repaint the car again, but now refuses..They have had this vehicle 3 times, I had to pay for rides to work the last time DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY GOING HERE !!!! They won't give out the Corporation's phone number or address but I got it and am taking them to court...

Pros: There are none

Cons: You could paint your car with a roller better

This is a copy of the complaint I submitted to the Better Business Bur.:

I first contacted Econo to paint my truck, the manager first told me a price of $300.00 when i brought my truck in he told me that it would cost more because of the size of the truck, he raised the price to $600.00 but later lowered it to $550.00, I said o.k. but I wanted it to look good when it was finished- he affirmed that it would look good when they where finished. I called the next day and the manager told me to pick up my truck that it was done. I got a ride to pick it up and it was not done, the whole truck was still taped up, they had painted over my running lights and over sprayed my windows at some places, But this is not what?s upsetting me, The paint was only lightly sprayed and you can see the underlying color in spots. it looks like they painted it with spray cans or something. I had the manager come out and look at it and he said don?t worry that they would fix it. Bring it back Saturday 08/25/07 at 8:00 am
When I finally made it from Lakeland to Winter Haven it was later that 8:00 am he said that he could not paint it because his guys where working on other cars that i would have to bring it back the next Saturday(9/1/07) I said o.k. and felt i was getting the run around. I called Saturday at 7:30 am and spoke to the manager, and he said he had not realized that it was a holiday weekend and that I needed to bring it in Tuesday (9/4/07) I dropped off the truck last night (Mon.) so that he could not say that I had it there to late( he would not let me leave the truck there any of these times, and this is a small truck, a 1 ton like an ice cream truck.) so this morning my father was there at 8:00am to drop off the keys to the truck, and the manager said that he did not speak to me and that he would not paint this truck today that I would have to bring it back this Saturday if I wanted it done, I told him I would contact the Better Business Bur. and he said he did not care.

Pros: They do paint cars- just not mine I guess.

Cons: Still trying to get work done....
