How much does paint correction cost on a car?

I’ve got an exciting new used car with a less than exciting paint job—it’s 10 years old and it shows. I’m interested in getting a paint correction, but I heard it’s really expensive. How much does a paint correction cost?

Congrats on your new-to-you used car! A paint correction is an easy way to make your used car seem brand-new, but the cost can add up. Paint corrections can cost anywhere from $500 to $2500. Here are some factors that can affect the price:
  • The age of the car
  • The number of scratches there are
  • The distance from you to the shop
  • The proficiency of the technician
Some people opt to ship their cars all over the US to have them serviced by special technicians. However, chances are there’s a shop near you that can help remove the micro-scratches for a potentially better price.
