Pros:I liked the car, liked the price, liked the location.Cons:When I picked up my car, no one explained to me the deposit. It wasn't clear on my receipt, and I wasn't aware of it at all until I checked my bank account. I tried calling the number listed on the receipt to understand and no one answered so I called the 800 billing number. He wasn't clear at explaining why I was charged over $100 more than what was given on my receipt, and was a little rude. I ended up calling the airport and ended up speaking to a really nice guy and he explained it to me better and wasn't sure why I wasn't given a detailed explanation at the time of pickupReviewed 12 Apr 2016

Comfort lackingPros:Car was clean and well-equipped.Cons:The driver seat in the car was very uncomfortable -- too low for short people. It would have been a bigger problem on a longer drive.Reviewed 30 Nov 2016

Don't offer rentals that aren't at the airport witPros:I liked the courteous staff and their ability to fix issues on the spot. The car was ready and clean, as advertised. There was no waiting, and no issue with changing the rental and dropoff location.Cons:I did NOT like the fact that my rental didn't clearly state it wasn't at the airport. It wasn't until I had the printed receipt in hand--at the airport--that I realized the pickup location was halfway across town. The staff was able to change this for me, but that isn't usually the case.Reviewed 4 Aug 2016

Easy for the most part, and straightforwardPros:Car was clean, ready to go, and the pick up and drop off was easyCons:Car had a dent on it that I noticed after I picked it up, and there wasn't anybody to check for damage when I picked up the car nor was this ever mentioned. Granted, I should have looked when I picked up the car, but I'm hoping that this dent isn't pinned on me.Reviewed 21 Sep 2016
