Didn't like the price
Pros: I liked the truck I rented. It was clean and ran well.
Cons: When I went to drop the car off at the airport, they tried to make me pay about 40 dollars more but they really didn't explain why . Then they wanted me to pay 8 dollars more because they said I didn't bring it in on time, but I had. I had the agreement that they gave me when I picked up the car and I said I wasn't paying a dime more. Finally they agreed and I only paid what they said I would be paying. What the heck?

Pros: I paid the quoted amount. The vehicle was clean, comfortable, and fuel efficient. The ease of pick-up and drop-off was excellent. Highly recommended!!
Cons: The car only had 1/4 of a tank of gas at pick-up, but the rental ticket indicated it was full. Unfortunately, this was only noticed at drop-off. However, the clerk was sweet and comped our gas so we didn't have to pay the outrageous refuelling fee.

Damage to car when we picked up
Cons: No one from Dollar walked around the car with us to inspect it. There was damage to the front and back quarter panels which, therefore, was not noted on the rental documents. We noticed the damage when we got home to pack the car and called to have that added to the file, but was told that could not be done.

Pretty good for a compact!
Pros: Gas mileage was excellent. Plenty of room for my 6' husband.
Cons: I am pretty sure I clicked "full size" car when I ordered this car on line, but when we picked it up it showed I selected a "specialty car," which apparently means compact. Not sure how that happened, and we were given the option to upgrade (for a much higher cost of course). We tried out the compact, and it fit just fine, so we stayed with it. In the end it all worked out, but was a bit disappointed at first.
