Pros:

It only took about 15 mins. total to check in and pick up car. Not pushy on insurance or extras. Vehicle was excellent, not one problem. got an SUV and the gas mileage was much better than expected.

Cons:

I wish he'd spent a little more time showing me the important accessories, it started to rain on the way home and I couldn't figure out the wipers until I got home, but I did know how to drop the back seats and turn on the seat warmers. Some of this on me, I was in a hurry. Overall, great experience.

The salesperson was great and kind very accommodating but the experience of the car was a nightmare 😕 I had no back wiper and the front wiper flew off while I was on 1-95 😕 going to Florida then the window got stuck in a downward position where I could not roll it back up for 6 hours of the drive and it rained and snowed with freezing weather but I don't blame Enterprise for the car behavior they had no way of knowing these problems and they were very compassionate and accommodating to the situation and they addressed it all my needs and insisted on making it up to me 👍 I would choose enterprise again and recommend them to others because of the way they handled the problem 😁

Pros:

The vehicle was great for what we needed. Very comfortable. Was great having heated seats/leather interior and up to date technology.

Cons:

Upon pick up there were still candy wrappers from the pervious owners, and a few dirty spots in the car, which I ended up purchasing cleaning wipes for and wiping down myself, given “COVID” these days, I played it safe.

Pros:

After I got re-routed to a different airport, my 24-year-old son had to pick up our car instead. I was worried because I thought you had to be 25 to rent. There was a small fee associated with it, but he was able to pick up our car with no problems, last minute. Thank you!

Jan 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was clean,

Cons:

Two hours into a drive that should have taken 4.5hours the transmission started to fail and there was no acceleration. Called roadside assistance but because I was in rural NY there were no pick-up locations nearby. I rented this vehicle to make a flight out of LGA and if I had waited for roadside assistance to finally get to me I would miss the flight. Despite repeatedly "resetting" the transmission I was only able to drive 40mph and even slower uphill. The drive was unsafe and unpleasant and what was a 4.5 hour drive became a 6 hour drive.

I was charged for the full rental despite bringing it back 4 days early. I was told “we can’t do anything about it” by the representative at the location.
