4.0 Mediocre

May 2024

KAYAK
The car was filthy, the polstry was disgustingly stained from previous customers on all seats in that car, the interior stank so bad I had to put an air freshener to cover it up, the steering wheel was sticky by touching, the car was giving to me with a maintenance due soon and 15% oil life left, the backsplash wiper was broken. In Germany they would never ever have given me a car in that condition! But I have to give credit for the staff in Watertown after they issued me my ticket for the car and the wrong payment was on it to solve that issue to the price I booked.

Staff had no rental vehicle despite online posting. Did not tell me before I got to store. Continued to say one might be coming for an hour before admitting they just never updated their online inventory.
