Pros:

The vehicle was easy to handle and rode smooth

Cons:

The women explaining the details while I looked at the car was a little rude especially when I pointed out marks on the vehicle and the fact that the back tire had extremely low tread versus the other three. Seemed like she wanted to add on too many "extras" onto the quoted price online.

Pros:

The local staff is great and the car was fine.

Cons:

I have signed up twice for the Avis Wizard program. It never goes through. I have called and gotten help fixing whatever is wrong with me signing up for it and then it isn't fixed. The perplexed local shop keep is worried that I will take my business else where. He tries to get the home office to fix it then and there - but I don't have time - I am trying to get on the road for business. I have had the same issue with Budget Fast Break. I can't ever sign in and get the deals I should be getting. So I do end up renting from Enterprise and Hertz.

Pros:

The gentleman who waited on me in Palm Harbor was extremely friendly and competent. I left the place smiling.

Cons:

The car was only filled halfway, which I didn’t notice until halfway down the road. I returned it filled completely. Also, someone must have smoked in the car at some point, and the stuff that was used to mask the smell was sickening.

Cons:

When I returned the car, the actual manager at that location was on the phone speaking to a potential customer and he spoke as if he owned Hertz, he seemed very egoic. He didn't acknowledge me and I just stood there. I had to thank him when we were finished he told me I was welcome.
