Infotainment system didn't work and felt belittled
Pros: I had a Focus and unbeknownst to me it was a hybrid model. This made for great mileage and saved on the gas expense. Despite being overpriced in my opinion, it was the lowest price that Kayak had available.
Cons: The entire infotainment system regularly shut off for the entire trip. While I had declined the Sirius and Navigation, it still made me unable to listen to the radio or CDs. The worker when I picked up the car was pretty condescending in her efforts to try and get me to spend more money. I had a one-way trip of about 600 miles, and I felt like the charge was pretty high for just a 24 hour rental.
Cons: The ease of pick up and drop off.
The only rental car that I have had to take to car
Pros: Comfortable car. Good price
Cons: Sunflower seeds and food in cup holders. Filthy dash and inside windshield. The guys at the car wash showed me their black paper towels after cleaning inside windshield.
Cons: Car was not clean and smelled like smoke. Stains on the front seats. Windows very dirty.
Worst experience we have ever had with a rental ca
Pros: I didn't like anything.
Cons: Customer service is awful. My husband had to fly to Peoria for a funeral at the last minute we had a car reserved. The computers at Budget Rental were not working and instead of working with him, they refused to rent him a car even though they had our credit card on file and he had the credit card in his possession they refused renting a car . he even offered them cash. He had to call a family member in the middle of the night because his flight got in late, to have that family member come and pick him up. I tried to talk to the woman on the phone to give her another credit card because they said they needed to charge more money than what the car actually was on to our account to pre-approve it. She was rude and unhelpful. Worst experience I've ever had with getting a car and my husband ended up having to rely on his family to get around town because he did not end up renting the car... we gave up. We didn't have a choice really ; when I tried to call customer service to complain or to solve the problem, they said their computers were down and they could not help me, that I needed to call back later. At that point it was way too late. We will never ever ever ever used Budget Cars again. Basically, because they could not process our credit card because of their own problems with computers, my husband was left without transportation in a time of family crises. I can't even express my disgust in budget car rental and also delta airlines, who also was having computer problems and still has our credit card tied up with pending charges for tickets we never purchased. Also, who could not fix it. I remember when companies used to bend over backwards to be helpful when a family member passed away.
Pros: Overall I had a great experience. Picking up the car was easy and dropping off was easy. they could give more directions and how to get to the car and where to return the car but overall the car was excellent in good condition ran well and I had no problems. this was a winter month so they even included a brush and scraper in the car.
Cons: As a newer car it had a pushbutton start. They did not tell me that ahead of time. I would have been upset if I had to walk all the way back to the terminal to figure that out. But my husband has this so I figured it out by calling him.
