Cons: Didn't get the car we reserved. The system was down at registration and didn't get a receipt until three days later and only because I requested it twice.

Comments on Car Rental Condition
Pros: Checks in and checkout process was very smooth and efficient.
Cons: Car was not as cleaned on the outside ie: bad wash job and not wiped down[properly...very wishy washy type of a look with lots of dirt marks left unwiped, making it very difficult to identify any pre-existing damages.

Shuttle
Pros: The car was fine and and as expected
Cons: The shuttle system is a nuisance. It easily adds an hour each way. There's no instruction as to whom to contact once you get off your plans.

Cancellation, rebooking, and hours of service
Pros: Never had a chance to find out
Cons: Cancellation policy and hours of service. We booked through kayak and paid in advance. Plans changed so we tried to cancel--cancellation charge was almost as much as the rental. Tried to rebook the car for the new date. Not possible because we arrive after the closing time (4:00 PM). What car rental airport location closes at 4?? If you cannot provide the service, there should be a full refund.

Did not issue refund
Cons: Due to a funeral in my family, I had to cancel my plans to rent a car. The agent I spoke with said she would be refunding my payment to my credit card. Nothing has happened to date.

Great customer service!
Pros: Our flight was delayed and we were going to arrive after the rental office had closed so I called ahead and two representatives stayed late to make sure we got our rental. My wife and two young children waited back at the airport and it worked out very well. Thank you for the extra service! We highly recommend the Driving Force. The Keith family

Overall great experience!
Pros: For me, it was also handy to have a city (vs airport) location.
Cons: I didn't appreciate that winter tires are considered an upsell. It wasn't relevant for my trip but soon when there is snow, winter tires are practically mandatory for out-of-town driving.

Feb 1 2016
Pros: Was able to at least drop back at the airport.
Cons: Didn't have cars at the airport so had to taxi in to town. Staff were good. Car was low grade. I am fine with a compact but this particular car had a rumbling muffler and almost 50k km. It also wasn't particularly clean. Dog hair in a few spots around dash etc

Wrong car
Pros: The car had a motor and 4 wheels
Cons: Not the car promised. Not booked at airport as thought, that could have been my error. Cost more to pick up in town due to taxi ride needed. Agent was slow, unprepared, printer was not working properly. Not much gas in tank. Big car small people. Not very happy with this rental.

Great service
Pros: We were late arriving due to weather conditions at the Kelowna airport, enterprise called to confirm our arrival and held our SUV for us. Shannon called later to ask how everything was going with the car to ensure everything was okay. We had no problem extending our rental for one day and dropping off at the airport instead of keehn road location. Will use this enterprise location again, good value and worth the cab ride to get there.

Feb 23 2017
Pros: The car itself was great, very clean and comfortable, drop off was really easy once we asked to change to drop off at the airport
Cons: I had listed the airport as my pick up/drop off but didnt realize until I went to pick up the car that we had to take a taxi in to town to get our car, the pick up location was NOT the airport. So we ended up paying an extra $50 to drop it off at the airport. I will likely not be using Kayak again for a car rental.

Great car and service, booking switch cost me mone
Pros: The car was perfect, a great ride, a Kia Soul.
Cons: I believed that I was booking the rental at the airport location. Somehow my reservation got switched to another location and I had to taxi back and forth to and from the airport. That was $50 more in taxi fees!

Cons: Like other reviewers have reported, I had a quote emailed to me and when I arrived to pickup the vehicle it was $150 more!! I asked about price matching, or honouring the quote and he was extremely unhelpful and would not even look at my email I had received.

Pros: Car was clean, dropoff and pickup was easy tough ther could be better signs of where to go.

Pros: Very friendly, uncomplicated staff.
Cons: Poor selection of vehicles. Ended up with a 4 cylinder Patriot which was screaming most of the time due to the lack of power. Therefore used around 15 liters per 100km. Rather drive a V8 and at least be able to drive relaxed...

Payment issues on pickup
Pros: The actual car was fine. Well equipped for the conditions i drove it in.
Cons: At pickup the counter worker could not process the car on my visa for some reason and blamed my card for the problem. We tried another card from mastercard and same problem. Then we tried a third card a visa and it worked. Seems like their system only likes certain cards from certain banks. So bring a few cards with you!
