CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Feb. 13, 2014 // PRNewswire // - MAACO®, part of the Driven Brands family of automotive companies and the nation's leading paint and collision service provider, today announced that "America's Body Shop" will be featured on an upcoming episode of the popular home improvement show, Designing Spaces™ airing on Lifetime® Television. Airing on Thursday, February 20 at 7:30 am(ET/PT), viewers can tune in, as they see first hand, how to turn the car they drive back into the car they love. The show will re-air on Friday, March 7 at 7:30 am (ET/PT).

From full collision repair and auto body painting to the repair of dents, scratches and weather damage, MAACO® offers viewers tremendous value by helping them understand the best questions to ask and walking them through the process involved in any repair – from assessing a car's needs, to how long restoration should take, to what it could cost. In the episode titled "How To Show Your Car Your Love," Keith Carlisle, manager, MAACO® Lauderhill, will walk a busy mom through the MAACO® customer experience – from damage detection, to estimates, options, body work, painting and delivery – helping her restore the functional sedan she drives, turning it back into the active sedan she loves.

"People are keeping their vehicles longer. The age of the average American car is 11 years and we think drivers and their cars, have the right to a fresh start," said Artemio Garza, chief marketing officer, MAACO®. "The show offers viewers the opportunity to see that MAACO® is easy to work with, reliable and affordable. So instead of giving up on the car from your cross-country road trip, or letting the one that carried your first-born home fall by the wayside, remember how it looked when you first drove it and see what we see - potential."
