Pros: the guy behind the counter at economy was good. friendly and helpful.
Cons: the car was at an offsite spot that i didn't notice on the paperwork. then i took a cab over to the new site. when i got there, the counter man said if i would have called, he would have driven over and picked me up. how pro is this situation? second, the car felt mediocre at best. something felt overused about it. (just an intuition.) i'm used to renting new cars. when the tire pressure sign came on (shouldn't that have been taken care of before i rented?), i couldn't get air in all the tires. so i drove with one tire at around 25 pounds of pressure. i will not use economy again.

Good Experience in the End
Pros: The price was very good and the Economy employees were very friendly. They even let me choose the color of the car. Also I appreciated that they didn't try to sell me additional insurance, which some other companies many times try to do. The car was in good working condition, was clean and had great gas mileage. It wasn't one of the newest models and had scratches, but for the price I paid I was pleased with it.
Cons: The location was 1.5 miles from the airport and even though when I made the reservation it was clearly stated that I would be picked up by a shuttle, when I called them I was told they don't do that anymore. I ended up asking a fellow traveler if he could share a Uber ride with me so I could reach the car pick-up location (taxis wouldn't take me since it was such a short distance). On departure day though, they gave me a ride back to the airport.

Pros: It was cheap but that's about it. I felt like the car was smaller than advertised.
Cons: That was the worst car I've ever driven. I felt every single bump in the road and couldn't stand driving it.

Pros: I was confused about where to pick up the rental car. When the office called me back, they were able to pick me up at my location. Great service!
Cons: Having only one person at the check in/out counter, there could be a long wait to either check in or out.
