Cons: The man at the drop off was so rude it made the whole experience horrible and I would never use dollar again. When we asked him which direction to get to the terminal he told us it's not his responsibility if we are too stupid to read the signs. His name was Marc or so he told me and I took a pic of him so I could complain.

Easy and quick
Pros: I came at a calm time. Hardly any wait. Was able to check in at the counter and walk out and pick up my car quickly. Returning was easy. Dollar is in the terminal so no shuttle required! There is a good amount of walking though, so if you're a large family with lots of kids and luggage (or someone that can't walk very far) I had my husband go get the car and we waited at the curb.

Pros: Car was ready and gassed when I arrived, and customer reps were polite.
Cons: The outside mirrors were very spotted. The inside of the windshield was not clean. These were problematic in bright sunshine or headlights, because visibility was reduced.

Long wait
Pros: Waited almost an hour at the counter to pick up my car

Oct 19 2015
Cons: location info for pick up was wrong which caused me a lot of inconvenience and costed me extra Uber fare cost. Dollar rent a car is good until for some reason you have to call customer support. The customer support is very poor and un informed. They don't even have a way of contacting the local branch.

Dec 10 2015
Pros: When I returned the car, I forgot to fill it. So they did let me leave to fill it and didn't mark me as returning the car late.
Cons: They charged me more than my initial quote. The attendant at front counter hardly spoke English. And I had to walk about a half mile from the counter to the key pick up to get the car, with all our luggage. the car wasn't in very good shape either.

Reservation but no car
Cons: Reserved car at one price. Told they had no vehicles at all. Ended up waiting half hour and paying eighty percent more for an upgraded vehicle.

Hertz at John Wayne Airport has a good crew
Pros: Thanks to the team last night who got my check-out done in very fast time then DROVE me to Terminal C with another couple; we were both running late. Keep up the personal service.

did not recognize the prepaid confirmation
Cons: My confirmed prepaid reservation was rejected because the card that was used was in my maiden name and my drivers license was in my married name. I have to go through the process of calling my credit card company and dispute the paid rental and tell them that i was not able to rent my car. Had a horrible experience with Hertz.

Is the car or the rental company?
Pros: The price.
Cons: It could be the car itself that made me feel the rental was "okay". It was a 2015 Toyota Yaris and anytime I went over 45 mph (even on sidestreets) it felt like the car was going to break down. Engine was loud and not in a good way. It also took forever for the arrow in the gas gauge to show it was full after I filled up. Interesting for a slightly new car. The pick up procedure was different from other car rental companies. No one checked out the car for scratches/dents before I left with it. So it made me nervous that they could've blamed me for things that might have already been there.

True Review
Pros: Drop off was quick and simple.
Cons: Pick up turned out to NOT be in the airport, though web site indicated it was. Left standing for ~20 minutes in sun waiting for shuttle. And then of course there was the off-property ride to go pick up the car. Inside of windows were (hazy)not clean. Engine light was on the whole time.

Unorganized drop-off
Cons: When we dropped off our car, there was a paper sign on the door saying they had 'stepped out' and to leave the keys at the front hotel lobby desk. We relied on them for a shuttle to the airport. and they were no where to be found so we had to quickly uber, pushing our flight. They then later charged us for the entire tank at $5/gallon plus a $15 fee, even after we requested to have the option where they filled it for us, so we returned it empty. Customer service was terrible on the phone, saying the 'agent didnt remember you saying you needed that option' and that was their grounds for the charge. Total scam.

First time...will also be my last time.
Pros: The price, eventually, was good. It fortunately ended up being the same price in my reservation.
Cons: When I arrived, it was not clear where to go, or that the company was even there. No employee was in the office, but there was another customer. When the employee did arrive 10 minutes later, she took another customer who arrived with her, but supposedly was there first. She helped him, and then assisted the man ahead of me. When he declined insurance, the employee stated that he needed to provide his insurance policy number. That made me leery, and i asked if that was only because he was using a debit card. She said I would have to provide the name of my insurance company. In the 10 years I've rented cars, dozens of times, that has never happened to me. I finally was assisted, and walked to my vehicle after I had been there (at Irvine, California) for 40 minutes. On the walk-around, I noticed several scrapes and paint drips. Why? The car had been in an accident and repainted. The car drove poorly, shuddering occasionally and locking up/having trouble with traction when going from a stop. The whole reason of renting a car was to have a functional vehicle while mine was in the shop. It didn't feel very safe, and I drove it very little, putting off a trip to LA to visit family. On the return, I was told by the same enployee that it would have to wait while she drove the previous customer back to the airport. I told her I didn't have time for that, and she said she could email me my receipt. It was a bit disconcerting waiting the two hours for the email, but it was correct, fortunately.

Pros: SNA really nice car - it must have been nearly new friendly staff reasonable price
Cons: you have to take a shuttle off-site so it takes some time depending on your viewpoint - they are over zealous checkiing the car for every nick and scratch before and after

Be Ready for Ups and Extras
Pros: There wasn't anything that I liked
Cons: Small stuffy room in a hotel was hard to find. Staff was not customer friendly and were used to people having the same reaction I did of being a palled when they became aware of the fine print that was not advertised and was not well it was contracted for. Extra fees for this and that did not result in making this any kind of economy kind of transaction. Stay away would be my suggestion. Use a first rate, name, company.
