Cons: 1. Some damage to rear bumper
2. Gas tank was not on Full

Pros: because they were overbooked, I got "upgraded" to a vehicle with more room, despite it being the lowest quality vehicle/cheapest vehicle in it's class (the jeep patriot), and now I understand why.
the extra room helped me as I was on business and had lots of cargo I needed to drive over an hour with.
Cons: terrible experience at the rental counter. Waited 20 minutes in line (there was one person ahead of me at the time.)
windshield washer fluid was very poor grade, and froze, rendering it useless. Company should invest in better grade fluid for winter driving conditions.
the counter was closed on my pick up and drop off, and I was referred to be assisted by another agency (Avis, serving Budget).

Pros: Got a free upgrade.
Cons: We rented with Budget, and when we were trying to find the Budget rental counter we couldn't find it. We had to ask someone and they directed us to Avis. There was absolutely no signs to let someone know Budget and Avis were the same.

Pros: The car I received was good.
Cons: The check in process was good. But my experience I had to return to the airport twice. The first vehicle I received had expired license plates. I did not realize this till I got home.The second car they wanted to give me had expired plates as well. Luckily I checked before leaving. The next car I was told didn't not have expired plates except everything inside the vehicles paperwork suggested that it would expire during my trip. The people at the desk assured me that it had been renewed but the paperwork had not been updated in the vehicle. By this time I just took my chances and went with it. There should be something in the system that notifies the desk the plates are expired and until they have been renewed the vehicle can not be used.

May 10 2017
Pros: Car was fine.
Cons: Customer service did not exist. First the car was not available at the local office, making us have to go to the airport, 30 min. away. The agent fast-talked us into $30.99/day insurance saying the $9 insurance advertised online only covered the car when it was being driven, not when it would be parked. We called to get it canceled, were told by Corporate that we could go into any office to get it rescinded, then were told by the local office that we would have to go to the airport (30 mi away) to get it removed. Local office called airport, airport office called us and was extremely rude, implying we were too lazy to go back to the airport office "5 min away"(apparently the agent has no knowledge of local geography). He was aggressive and belligerent. Never renting from Budget again.
