Pros:Car was great, if a bit beat up. I appreciated the rep finding me an AWD vehicle in case of poor weather conditions.Cons:The front seats were a mess, clean, but battered. Not what I expect from a rental, more what I expect borrowing a friend's car.Reviewed 20 Feb 2021

Pros:Loved the Jeep WranglerCons:The car had a tire with half the safe level of tire pressure, so I was getting crisis alerts on the dashboard the whole time. The windshield was dirty and there was no windshield wiper fluid.Reviewed 3 Nov 2020

Pros:Easy to bookCons:Car rented was a high miler. Heard some on and off noise while driving to a medical meeting and was told by the resort attendant that the front cowling was dragging on one side. Spent hours trying to contact someone to report to and was finally told to return car to the nearest Avis renter center. That was where I rented the car at the airport in ABQ (25 miles away). So I returned the car 36 hours later after my meeting ended . Problem explained at check in and was told they would look into it. Major complaint is the lack of convenient/reliable communication when something goes wrong.Reviewed 1 Aug 2018

Pros:There was nothing I liked about this experience. Such a bad experience.Cons:They made a reservation for 12pm for a location that closed... at 12pm. The guy was still there and informed me that they “have been trying to get this changed for sometime” and did nothing to help us. We had to get a ride to another location and they tried to charge us more than double the reservation price. When I asked to speak to the manger on site, I was told that it would be 3-4hrs before she could speak with us. I spent literally hours on the phone with National. When we finally did get the car, they gave us the wrong car and didn’t tell us. When I called to tell them they gave us the wrong car, they directed me to a new location to pick up the right car. Upon arriving at the new location the person on site told me that he “didn’t know why they told us that, I don’t have any cars to give you”. No one at any of these locations were apologetic or tried to help us figure anything out. National ended up giving us a $100 credit which isn’t really that much (IMO) for how much time I spent dealing with this nightmare.Reviewed 13 Apr 2021

Pros:The fellow at pickup could not have been more friendly and helpful. I have no issue with him.Cons:1st. There was no mention during the online booking of the car that the rental location was not at the airport, despite my flight booking. I took the shuttle from the airport to the car rental center only to be told that my pickup location was a $30 cab ride away.1 1/2 hours would have been saved. 2nd.The car itself was miserable to drive. The alignment was so bad it wouldn't hold the road, it stunk of smoke, and there was an orange abandoned vehicle sticker on the drivers window obstructing view. For some reason I had trouble maintaining an even highway speed and the cruise didn't work. It made my 2 hour drive feel like 5. Driving this car was a white knuckle experience.Reviewed 13 Apr 2021

Pros:We received the type of car that we expected. Drop-off was super quick and easy.Cons:The rental process took well over an hour. Once we received the car, it was dirty. There were potato chips all over floorboard, a bag of opened Gold fish in the console. There was less than half a tank of gas. We cleaned the windshield one time and then the windshield cleaning fluid was empty. Despite being promised by "Dirk" that we would not be charged for bringing the car back with less than a full gas tank, we were charged. When this was discovered, I was on phone hold for 30 minutes to correct the error. Fortunately, there was a note on our record of Dirk's promise and a refund was processed. Will see how long it actually takes to refund the overcharge. This was the least pleasant rental experience I have ever had with a well-known company.Reviewed 15 Jun 2021

Pros:Simple and easy to pick up and drop off the car.Cons:The car engine oil light was on when picking up the car. Apparently they forgot to reset it. Also the windshield fluid was empty. I had to go to a gas station halfway through my trip and top it up on my own.Reviewed 22 May 2021
