Pros: My first impression of the compact Yaris was that I could fit it in my purse. My purse benefited, however, from this extremely economical and easily driven automobile. The car handled over 1,000 miles extremely well - both the road conditions and the weather. Had great pickup, too, on the interstate. The Summerville, SC, Hertz pickup was very good. Eric was very courteous and took his time. He even put the back seats down for my luggage and ease of mind that no one could get in the back seat when I wasn't looking. Little things like that make a big impression. Plus the price for the rental was great considering the mileage I put on the car. However, since the Yaris had Texas plates, I figure I was getting the little car closer to home by dropping it off in Tulsa.
Cons: The inside windshield was not cleaned properly and was smeared. As I was headed west the whole time, the smears were both a distraction and an eyestrain.
