Pros: It was a fast, friendly pick-up, and the rental associate was immensely personable - a nice change from the curt interactions I've had elsewhere.
Cons: Chevy Spark + windy highway = how did I not blow off the road? Definitely know what car I won't be buying or recommending for everyday use. I wish I'd known how it drove before choosing the cheaper option - good for around town, but not higher speed trips... Still, better than taking a two hour bus ride.
