Pros:

Staff was friendly.

Cons:

There were some electrical issues wrong with the jeep that I rented which caused me to be unable to charge my phone on a camping trip. It turned out to be a bit of an issue. I guess that's what I get for upgrading.

After about 100 miles of driving the oil change sensor went off. A few days later the washer fluid ran out. Neither were a big deal but the alerts were somewhat annoying. Will rent again though! Very happy with our rental!

Car was very dirty inside and out and smelled like weed. I had to clean all the windows just so we could see out of them to go on our long road trip. Car ran fine but it’s clear the van was just immediately rented out to me without Avis going through the car to make sure it was safe for me and my family.

I spoke with an Avis representative prior to picking up my car and verified that there was a vehicle available. When I showed up at the Avis rental car facility they did not have any cars available for me to pickup even though I secured the online rental and discussed it with the representative at the facility. Apparently they had 4 cars available to rent the following day but 20 reservations already in the system. I don't know why their online system would allow you to book a car when no cars were available. This meant I was late to my business meeting and caused incredible frustration!

Pros:

The car ran well and was relatively easy to adjust to. Pick up and drop off went quickly.

Cons:

The car on pick up was totally covered in mudd and bugs coating the windshiled. I had to immediately go to the car wash, as loading stuff into a muddy car is not fun. Also the inside while not dirty dirty was also not vacuumed or wiped out.
