Asked by Feb 08, 2017 at 08:49 PM about the 2007 Toyota Camry

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently scratched my rear bumper. Which of the
following options would u recommend?
1a- repaint by professional body shop, cost $800
(I'm on a tight budget)
1b- repaint by maaco, cost $350. They got decent
reviews on yelp.
2. Replace it- cost $900 (I won't do this unless I
have absolutely no other choices)

My car was repainted by the dealer and the paint is
peeling off. Apparently they did a bad job.  Would a
good autobody shop (option 1a) do a better job
than the dealer did, and prevent the paint from
peeling if I scratch it again? Thanks a lot.

Hard to say if the dealer did a bad job or not. Something like this I think I would go with the cheaper price. If you went with the $800 paint job, you might as well get a new bumper for $900. The cheaper price makes more sense.
