Cons:

The office was very disorganized at pickup. The car had not been washed. After I returned it, I got a call saying there was a crack in the windshield. My suspicion is that because the car was dirty, I missed a small crack at the time of check-out, and then it got worse because of the cold, and then they noticed it and charged me for it. I did not do anything to cause the crack, but they just don't want to take responsibility for it.

Pros:

Everything about my rental was great. The two guys working the Salem, NH office were fast, polite, thorough, and genuinely just real nice guys. Same two guys working when I dropped off, same great experience. They topped off my rental's washer fluid before I left, which is just great attention to detail, given all the road salt in winter.

Cons:

Nothing really. Great experience.

Pros:

The pick up staff was very nice and off hours drop off was easy.

Cons:

The car was disgusting. Given pandemic conditions and hertz emails saying they were doing a higher level of cleaning it was obvious this car wasn’t even vacuumed and we found old dirty glasses in the seat pockets. I spent two hours cleaning the car surfaces to make sure it was safe for my family. I sent emails to hertz as you can’t get a hold of anyone to talk to them and 0 response. Will not rent from hertz again as they obviously don’t take cleanliness during a pandemic seriously.
