Suspicious gas gauge and too much up selling at th
Pros: Car was clean, if somewhat loud
Cons: The "up selling" was too much. The counter guy pushed hard to sell me a $60/day "protection" package on a rental that was nominally $10/day. Because it was snowing, I opted for the collision damage waiver - again more than 2 times the cost of the car. As we had packed in and were getting ready to pull out, he told me that the car handled poorly in the snow.
And there was something off about the gas gauge. We got the car and it read "full." We drove a total of 49 miles in an economy, fuel-efficient car. On the way back to the airport, it still read "F" but we stopped at the gas station that was about 500 yards away from the rental return and filled it until it shut off - it took 2.5 gallons (surprising for 49 miles in a fuel-efficient car). Then in driving that 500 yards, the gauge for the first time dropped below the "F". Dollar then charged me $13.99 as a "refueling service fee" to supposedly fill the tank, and refused to credit it back when I protested. There was definitely something suspicious in how that was handled.
Our $10 economy car rental ended up costing about $70 for about 17 hours and 49 total miles by the time all was said and done.
