8.4 Very good
Pros:Courteous and very pleasant
Cons:they didn't let me know that they could pick me up and take me home...
Pros:The staffs are very helpful!
Pros:The service that I received during the pick up of the rental could not have been better. The assistant manager at this location went above and beyond and because of this our vacation was improved 10 fold. I could not be happier.
Cons:During the drop off I had to get a ride that was on a time table. The return took considerably longer than the pickup due to the staffing of the office. (Only one person working at the time) With that being said they did what they could and I left a happy customer. They will do whatever they can to earn your return business and I recommend them without hesitation.
Cons:Used toothpicks in door and spilled chocolate or something all over door
Pros:excellent customer service particularly alex
Pros:I think the car has a 12 gallon tank and we made it 400plus miles on one tank. Good stock stereo system, which is important to me on a long trip.

Pros:Clean good van
Pros:The car I ended up with was a nice, clean, Chevy Cruze.
Cons:Upon arrival they harassed me because I had made the reservation that same day. According to Avis, if you do so, you must call the pick-up branch to confirm availability. Since i had not been made aware of that, i hadn't done such. So, they were out Economy vehicles, and they refused me any vehicle without a substantial upcharge.
8.4 Very good

Cons:Limited selection of cars available and long line at check in

3 locations in Fort Collins
Pros:Staff was friendly and helpful on both ends
Cons:Car was not ready to be driven. Oil change was past due kept getting messages the entire trip that it was past due. The air in the tires was 27, 30, 45 and 39 which is ridiculous obviously NO ONE did a review of the car before I picked it up. I had to pull over twice to get the tire pressure correct and from the time I left the oil change light was on. In addition the windows on the inside were not cleaned and therefore caused issued with night vision. I give you an F on preparation, worst condition of any rental car I have ever driven
Pros:They wouldn’t rent me a car after booking and providing my card info, because my license is out of state. I was stuck 4 hours away from home for the whole night.
Cons:Let people know before buying what kind of problems they may run into prior to getting to the car place
Pros:The size of the car was nice and the price was good. I like most of the bells and whistles that the car comes with. I like the avg. MPG display the most.
Cons:There was some trash that wasn't mine I found when cleaning it (I was the only one ever in it). The radar detector was a hazard for me personally, although I think it may have been malfunctioning. The loud beep when I'm changing lanes on a freeway made me hesitate longer before transitioning completely and increased the danger to me. The "replace oil and oil filter" prompt came on the screen from the first time I turned the key and every time after.
