Cons:

The first car we were given was dirty - animal hair in the vehicle and the gear shift appeared to be chewed up. The second car we got was below average.

They were great! We ended up having to extend our rental by one day and talked with customer service and was done within a few minutes. Wish kayak showed the price of the rental with the taxes included.

The pickup was really far away from the city center, and it was difficult to access walking. Everything else was great, fast and we definitely got our money's worth

I wish I would have gotten more information from the person I picked up the car from. I'm not upset that I got charged to cleaning fee, I'm upset that it wasn't explained to me in the first place especially when I told her I was riding with the dog.

Had a windshield crack the first day (due to a chip impact certainly done during previous rental) and my car was changed without problem. Excellent support and I recommend taking the optional assistance.
