Look at the tires!!!
Pros: They did give us another car for the remainder of our rental (approximately a month) when we brought the tire condition to their attention and made an adjustment on the final bill when we dropped the car off at our final location.
Cons: We were assigned a car with illegal bald tires on both front wheels. We were not aware of that until someone pointed it out after driving this dangerous car for over 2 weeks!! We had driven over several mountain passes during this period and were told we were lucky to be alive!

Great service
Pros: At the drop-off, there was a driver going to SNA airport and she waited while I checked the car in and took me straight to the terminal. I was running late and I easily made my flight, it was extraordinary service.

Horrible experience. Do NOT use Thrifty
Pros: Nithing
Cons: Office was off-airport, and very sketchy. They didn't have the car I reserved (minivan) which I really needed for all of my passengers and luggages. The small SUV they offered would not accommodate.

No pick up
Pros: Car great and clean
Cons: Waited 30 min and no pick up. Took a cab
4,0 Okay
Oct 24 2015
Cons: The employees at the counter were focused on personal conversations rather than the line of customers waiting to be helped. Once I was told to wait for the car outside, after 15 minutes of waiting, the car had been taken to a different location. I had also purchased insurance via online reservation, and was then at the location and somehow 2 insurances ended up on my bill. Will not be coming back to Thrifty.

Pros: I had to take first car back due to engine symbol. It was handled quickly and I was given a much more comfortable car. Ron @ Thrifty was polite, helpful, & great. All the employees there were friendly! I would rent from them again.

Off-Airport and SLOWEST Shuttle Ever
Pros: The car was fine. A Chevy spark.
Cons: The location is off-site and the shuttle is insanely slow. You could wait for twenty or thirty minutes and it is nearly impossible to find a direct phone number to the local Thrifty office to call and ask about the status of the shuttle.

Kayak or Thrifty: one-way dropoff fee nondisclosur
Pros: Clean car. Great condition. Quick pickup and dropoff. Polite attendants.
Cons: I was charged a drop off fee for one-way rental that was not included in my Kayak confirmation email although the email clearly showed pickup and drop off in different locations. Don't know if the disconnect was on Kayak's end or Thirfty's end but this reflected poorly in both companies.

Pros: How fast the process of returning the car was.
Cons: Couldn't figure out how to adjust side mirrors and some of the ventilators weren't great. The car needed a clean but at least I didn't have to wait. Also it was very expensive because of different pick up and drop off locations.

Poor description of product
Pros: I have to pay 27 dollars more per day for underage fee which I didn't know at the first place and plus the insurance is not with Hertz.

Cons: yes, i was late for my appointment by 30min. The only person at the counter was absent at the counter. I called up their number on the reservation but the lady that answered the phone was not very helpful (she did not offer to contact the absent lady and kept repeating "she will be back shortly." I waited 30 min and called her again and had to ask her to confirm when the absent is coming back.) After all I had to wait for an hour and half to finally get to my car.

Car was great, but pickup/dropoff a disaster.
Pros: The car itself was fine -- late model, decked out with features, and the price was okay.
Cons: Picking up the car, they wouldn't let me use the card I wanted, although it was a Visa, and they wouldn't really explain why. As I was going to be returning the car at 8pm, I explicitly asked if there would be anyone there, and they said yes. When the time came, the door was locked and nobody was there. I called Hertz and they suggested I go five miles down the street to a location with "after hours pickup and dropoff", which I did -- at an extra relocation fee of $15. My reservation clearly said pickup and dropoff at such and such a location and at a set time, so I can't believe that their absence was oversight on their part. What's more, when making the reservation I clearly marked the airport code that I wanted to pick the car up at, but the car was not actually located there, it was several miles (either quite a long walk or a taxi ride) away. Hertz clearly has rental cars in the airport, and I'm not sure why I wasn't assigned one of those.

Pros: I like that the attendant was polite. Price was good for the rental.
Cons: Attendant does not answer the phone. I called at different times on different days, never answered the phone. The attendant left the location to wash a car for an 45 minutes. There is no key drop off at that location. There is no shuttle to the airport that is 1 mi. I will not book w/ budget again.
