Pros: I was greeted with a friendly face at both pick up and drop off.

Pros: The Ford Flex is a very comfortable vehicle
Cons: The car was not washed or cleaned on the inside when I picked it up in Salem. They did have the lot person take it around back to spray the car off, but it failed to remove the waterspots on the black car. Normally, not a big deal, but I was attending my daughter's wedding and would have preferred the car look better.

Pros: Used car to help someone move so great to have cargo space without having to drive a truck. Lot of power.
Cons: Car wasn't ready as reserved even though I arrived about 45 minutes past scheduled pickup time. Took it dirty, which was mostly on outside. Without us we'd manual was hard to find some things and confused by no gascap

Terrible customer service at Salem airport pickup/drop off.
Cons: Indian man at counter made horrible mistakes which resulted in not just one but THREE credit cards having a hold for my rental charges...the only three cards I had on me. Had to have my wife Uber to the airport ($40) to bring me another card, as apparently the number/info won't work, he has to run it through his machine. Spent 2 hours trying to pick up a rental car at an airport that has zero customers. I was the only one there. I tried to extend my rental over the phone/online and was not allowed. I had to go back to the airport to turn in my car and rent another. Guess who was waiting at the counter? The Indian man. Guess who did the exact same thing to two credit cards even as I warned him he had done it previously? If renting a car in Salem, Oregon, do yourself a favor and go anywhere but Budget. This guy handles car and truck rentals for Budget and Avis. Steer clear.
Pros: I liked how easy it was to pick up and drop off. Not much paperwork and the people were nice.

Pros: they gave me a car with defect seat belt on the R-side.when I tried to change it they offer me a truck.I told them I have a prostetic leg I can't get into a truck ,is too tall for me.Sorry we can't help , they said,find another Entreprise.(I was in CA, lucky with smart phone !!!) I have to travel 25m.+ to get another car.The new place gave different car,after we changed all the stuff and baggage they came and said "sorry we need to change it again this can't go to Oregon." Move all the stuff again!!!,and no help.Could be better!!
Pros: The ride overall was smooth and had a good amount of storage for what I needed.
Cons: I had placed a Minivan rental for the day and was told that there would be one available only to go in and be given a Kia Sorento. When I asked the agent about the difference, he was both non-empathetic and unapologetic in giving me the replacement type of vehicle. He also did not to do anything to help me with an accommodation or to figure out how to compensate me for the issue. Further, the SUV he gave me had a near flat tire on it. When I brought it back in and told him about it, he attempted to shove my problem onto another employee and then let out a loud, audible sigh as if inconvenienced. He came back after making me wait for 10 minutes, handed me the keys and really did not even say anything in the way of an apology for the time it took to remedy the problem. I do not hold these issues against him personally but he had very poor customer service.
Finally, the car had developed a very sour, funky smell that became a bit overpowering in the afternoon. I brought it to the airport agent's attention when I dropped it off and she noticed it as well.

Pros: Great vehicle upgrade
Cons: Tried to give me a compact vehicle when I rented a full size, then told me
It was their only car left and also tried to tell me that it WAS a full size vehicle. Manager immediately changed it when I told him what had happened.
