The battery on the rental car died, nothing was left on or open. Having to jump start a rental car twice was a real pain. The vehicle wasn’t cleaned well. There was a dental flosser and gum in it from the previous renter.

Pros:

Drop off very easy

Cons:

Didn't have the car I reserved available because they overbooked and a "glitch" in their system (bull). Was forced to pay extra for an "upgrade" to rent, unless I wanted to "wait around" for when a car would show up. What's the point of reservations then!?
