Service was very good. First time anyone has walked me out reviewed the rental and pointed important items.

Cons:

Comfort was lacking. Without cruise control I had to be on the gas pedal. That in combination with seating positions allowed car vibrations to cause pain in leg, ankle and foot. I had to stop every 2 hours to get relief. Okay local car very poor traveling car.of all the many rental cars, this one was the worst.

I reserved a car for noon. I showed up a few minutes past noon and the door was locked. I knocked and the lady said they are closed. I explained I rented a car to be picked up at noon. She said said they were closed and even if they weren’t, she didn’t have a clean car to give me. She was not kind or helpful. I ended up losing money on this rental I never got.
