Car could have been cleaner. There were no cars available when we needed it. Had to pick up next day, and they only had one. It was very hard for me to get into because I am shorter and it was very high for me.

The car was terrible. It would only take 1/4th of a galling of gas at a time from the pump. The passenger seat would not move back or forth, weird watery noise when accelerating from a stop.
