Cons:

The car was given to me with only a half tank of gas. The car was dirty, and it wreaked if an overpowering smell of air freshener that gave me a headache. A nice natural clean fresh car smell would be much better. The air freshener made it feel cheap.

Hertz closed the office, but never transferred it to another location. When I discovered this, Hertz wanted to charge me a $100 cancellation fee because they CANNOT TRANSFER the reservation to a different location. Also, I would have to pay the new current rate and would not apply the prepaid amount. I finally was able to find an 800 number person to rebook me to a different location. 2 days before pickup, the manager at the new location called and said he did not have the requested vehicle, but would TRANSFER it to a yet a 3rd location for me. When I turned the vehicle in, they tried to charge me $6.00 more for taxes because you could not prepay taxes. But the receipt I was handed at vehicle pickup showed that the taxes were prepaid. A rental with a lot of high anxiety!!
