8.0 ExcellentFeb 17 2021
Pros: Staff was great! Really appreciated all their assistance. Pick up and Drop off were easy.Cons: We were told 3 days before our trip that there was no vehicle in the size that we needed available. We appreciated their honesty. We received a call the next day that a van became available but someone had smoked in the van and they were trying to air it out for us. The day we picked up our rental, another van had become available, which we were glad to see. However, someone had also smoked in that van too. All the seats were covered in a layer of cigarette ash. We shared with the staff that the new car smelled like smoke and was dirty. They offered to wipe down the seats, but we knew that the smell would not just evaporate with wiping down the seats. We took the van to the car wash and had to pay to have it cleaned. Even the manager at the car wash was surprised because he knows we are not smokers and couldn't believe the smell. We were taking our parents, who are older and more sensitive, on this trip. We had to purchase air fresheners to try and cover up the smell. Our whole trip we had to drive with the heat on full blast (February trip) and the windows open. Our clothes, suitcases, even food tasted like smoke from being in that car. We usually have had great experiences with Enterprise but were super disappointed by this last one.
10.0 ExcellentNov 24 2020
Pros: I liked the location and the vehicle I rented was reasonable with gas.Cons: The time the vehicle had to be picked up and dropped off could've been better for me. The hours of operation mattered because I had to pick up the vehicle in enough time to reach my destination and return on time.
10.0 ExcellentAug 20 2019
Pros: YesCons: Response on phone to 800 number regarding my question on ezpass.
10.0 ExcellentAug 16 2019
Pros: Incredible customer service from beginning to end and best pricing I found. I will definitely use them again next time I’m in NJ!Cons: They could not have improved my experience!

10.0 ExcellentFeb 22 2017
Pros: The service and the people were the greatest. Very kind and helpful. Will definitely go back there again.Cons: The car tower had was give out fumes into the car. I gave us a headache when driving. Had to open windows thankfully it was a warm weekend.
9.2 ExcellentJan 3 2017
Great service under challenging circumstancesPros: Manager was kind and apologetic when car wasn't ready at pickup time in Passaic. And he was extremely helpful when I returned the car. I will definitely be renting from Passaic again based on his excellent customer service.Cons: Car didn't get to rental office until a few minutes after pickup time. But it was 12/23 and I understand a busy time of year.
10.0 ExcellentDec 29 2016
So easy.Pros: Friendly staff. Affordable rate. Very easy to arrange. The only complaint I'd have is really not specific to Enterprise. I wish there were quoted prices for all the extras as well. Paying so much more for things like insurance is underhanded. I want to know the TOTAL cost for everything I specifically want (extra driver, etc.) BEFORE I book a reservation. Otherwise, it was a pleasant transaction.

10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2019
Cons: Everything was great
2.0 MediocreApr 24 2018
Cons: Showed up at 10:00 to pick up my car (to head to VT for the funeral of my best friend)...and was told 'they are closed' by person in adjoining business. Ended up not being able to locate a car nearby and had to use my own car (which is not in the best shape) for a 4 hour drive there and back. Do not understand why the owner could not have called me since, in order to get there (& back), I needed a Lyft. Be sure to CONTACT this location via phone before heading out or you might have a problem.
9.6 ExcellentJun 20 2017
Nissan Versa Weekend RentalPros: Appreciated that the 'flaws' on the car were identified on paperwork when car was picked up. Transaction was handled quickly and we were on our way in no time!! Car was in great shape; very clean and good mileage (Nissan Versa). No hassle using a debit card!!Cons: Only issue was that I could not leave my car in the area for the weekend that I was gone. At another location (Clifton), you could park on the street nearby, vehicle was safe and no hassle of needing a second driver.
10.0 ExcellentDec 24 2016
Excellent ServicePros: The car was great but the service as always at the Montclair location was the best. She is honest and upfront about fees and charges, knows all the details and can make helpful recommendations. And she knows her cars. She made the somber trip to a funeral so much less of a hassle and it was a less difficult day.Cons: No complaints
