Pros: The staff was friendlyCons: The vehicle was not inspected for safety. The steering wheel was tilted to the left while driving straight.

2.4 MediocreMay 28 2019
Cons: Customer Service is basically, non-existent. The Manager was sitting on his computer while I was talking and couldn't be bothered and the Sales Representative, explained that many customers have complained about Customer Service and how Management chooses not to respond.
3.2 MediocreMay 9 2019
Cons: This car was filthy when I got in it and had almost no gas and the representative told me that there were only two on staff at the moment and that’s why he couldn’t fill up the tank unless I wanted to wait awhile. This is one of of the worst branches I’ve rented from.

Very HappyPros: It is so rare today to have a pleasant experience with any company in the service industry. My experience was one of those rare instances! Your representative was pleasant and efficient. The car was ready when we arrived and the paperwork took less than 5 minutes (which was very important because we had a 13 month old who needed a nap.) When we returned the car, the cost was exactly what had been agreed upon -- no hidden fees. Thanks for making this part of our trip run so smoothly!!

2.0 MediocreAug 13 2017
Bait and switchCons: I had requested a car rental near the San DIego airport and when I got to Avis, was told that the pickup for the car was about 20 minutes away and it was suggested that I Uber there. I didn't have time for that, so they referred me to a private car rental service that provides transportation primarily for missionaries heading for Mexico. The private agency owners were very accommodating, but I paid twice the price quoted, got a car that didn't have a functioning speedometer, a brake light that wouldn't turn off, and another dial on the dash that was out of control. Overall, it was a big disappointment and delayed arrival at my destination by about an hour or so.
