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 Jun 12 2024

The customer should receive the model and make chosen online and not a random vehicleReviewed Apr 1 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 Feb 24 2024

The drop off location and time was not what I selected in my search and didn’t realize until the night before that it had changed. Tried to call to change and it was closed, called the next morning and was informed it would be $659 to change to a closer drop off or to keep the car a couple extra hours. That is insanity. I waited over an hour in line to rent from these guys for pick up after my scheduled time, but was told if I was more than 20 min late it would be $659. What a joke.Reviewed Oct 16 2022

Everything was ok except how long it took to get our car. We waited in line for an hour. And we had to get to our destination asap. There was not enough staff for the amount of customers AND they had problems with having cars ready.Reviewed Sep 11 2022
