Hunk of junk car
Cons: Dear Hertz,
I am a frequent traveler and I have to say today's rental experience is the worst by far in many years. I am driving 600+ today and this car had made the trip miserable. First when I booked the car I checked on the hertz website to make sure that the class of car I was booking had cruise control. Second when I arrived at the rental facility I asked if the car had cruise and I was told yes. After getting checked in we headed out to dothe vehicle inspection. Before the inspection I was told this car is pretty beat up. That was the understatement of the year. This rental looks like it did 500 miles at Bristol Motor Speedway then crashed into by the pace car following the race. The Hertz associate acknowledged that they were happy to have this car gone. Ten minutes into the trip I realized that the car in fact did NOT have cruise. I immediately called the Hertz location back and was told that they could only rent me something in a larger vehicle class for a small uncharge of $40.00. The fact that I am only paying $73.98 for the entire rental I don't think that a 50% up charge is acceptable. He told me to call another location on my journey to switch it out. I called the corporate number and the very nice lady called every Hertz from Chicago to Mississippi and no one had a car with cruise due to it being spring break. Additionally the transmission on this car is slipping and making some very unnerving sounds. This Corolla has almost 40,000 miles with near bald tires. I find this entire experience unacceptable and not to the standards I feel that Hertz's advertises. If I wanted a car like this I would rent from Enterprise.
In closing please train your employees not to lie when asked about features on a car. Also please take cars off your lot before they become this bad.
