Waiting line for pick up the vehicle was horrible, then it wasn’t the car we were expecting. It wasn’t clean and the worst part was when we returned it. The price went from 460 dls to almost 600 So bad experience 😩Reviewed 12 Jun 2024

The vehicles I had was terrible. Maintenance needed on the vehicle WiFi updates needed. The side mirrors were very dirty. Looks of chocolate milk or shake splashed in the trunk area on passenger side. Vehicle not vacuumed, dried spot of crusty food on front passenger seat. Front windshield exterior had black tape or something on top and partially down the window. Looks of a repair. Partial scraped of stickers on the interior passenger side of windshield. Just an all around below standard experience. Oh and the tires are below minimum tread. (Penny check)Reviewed 24 Feb 2024

The pickup experience was poor – it seemed like my counterperson had somewhere else to be; there was visible damage to the back right body panel on my rental car (it had been marked with a series of X’s); upon returning the car they mis-charged me $77 for the fuel option – which I had not signed up for – even though it stated on the same bill that it had been returned full (8/8).Reviewed 24 Feb 2024

Pick up took an hour, but it was a busy day during what I imagine is a very busy season. However, what was unacceptable was that the car had clearly been smoked in by the last user and the smell lingered. Additionally it was only half full with gas when I picked it upReviewed 3 Jan 2024
