Pros:Better mileage than expectedCons:Pick up: disaster. Despite having RESERVED a mini-van class car, there was none available when I arrived. What's the point of a reservation? Instead they "upgraded" me to a CRV, which has half the storage space. Extremely unhappy because I planned to move across the country in the larger car, not a tiny CRV.Reviewed 6 Dec 2020
