The car drove fine and was comfortable enough for being so small, but had not been cleaned and was previously driven by someone smoking so that it smelled like cigarettes the entire time I had it. I had to wipe crumbs and dust off the dash and steering wheel and use windex and paper towels on the inside windshield and mirrors so that I could see. I think someone tried wiping with a dirty rag or something before me. The rental office shares the lot with a tow company and auto shop that made it hard to get the car out. When I showed up to return the car, they had locked the door and put a sign saying I had to drop off at a different location almost 30 minutes away. Luckily the agent I spoke said she could come to get the car where I was since I could not take it 30 minutes away.
