The price for an auto paint job ranges from $400 to $20,000, as of 2015. Prices are affected by the location, type of the paint job, the color chosen, the quality of paint and the vehicle size.
Auto paint jobs include single-stage paint or basic paint jobs and move on to high-end specialty paint jobs, which cost more. The price is also affected by additional prep work such as sanding and removing rust spots and dents. Paint repair prices also vary drastically depending whether the repair is to a fender or door.

A mid-level paint job with a higher-quality paint and additional prep work such as removing rust and dents can range from $1,000 to $3,500 with an average of $1,316.
