Hidden charges, bad service, unfriendly staffPros:1) Car was clean and worked well without problems.Cons:1) Took about an hour to get the rental car. Had to keep returning from exit gate due to staff errors. 2) An additioanl hold was placed on my Credit card due to staff error. 3) Was charged a "Discount recovery fees" - Why do they even give discounts. Worst form of window dressing to lure customers. 4) Was charged a "Transportation fees" - Car was picked and dropped in the exact same parking lot. That is seventh floor of rental building in San Jose airport. 5) Was only told that fuel will be charged with no mention that this will be $9.99 per gallon. I discovered this exorbitant charge only after looking at the receipt.Reviewed Dec 24 2016

Cons:When I got into car noticed that my gps would not turn on once plugged into the cigarette lighter. Brought this to attention of attendant who appeared to fix the problem but instead turned my gps onto battery mode. An hour later (in the middle of nowhere) the gps went off and I had no way to locate my destination. I found my way back to San Jose airport, in the fog, without instrumentation. First, Dollar should not be renting cars with defective lighters and, second, once this is pointed out to attendants, should provide another car for use. On top of this, the car had no manual to locate instruments. On the whole, a horrible experience.Reviewed Nov 8 2016

Pros:The car was clean and the price was very fair. However, see below...Cons:I rented a certain class for not only the luxury comfort, but for the size. However, Dollar did not have the car I rented. They first tried to down grade me to a lower class, but larger car. I did not think this was fair so I did not agree. We went through the options and I explained, due to having two of my elder uncles with me and their need for a larger car, I needed something larger. Eventually a larger car was offered, but at a much higher rate. Again, I did not agree as a car in my category should have been available to me. Eventually I was offered another luxury vehicle (supposedly in the same class), but much smaller and the entire weekend we had difficulty getting my uncles in and out of it. Due to the inability to have a car ready for me in the class I rented I would have preferred the “upgrade” to an adequate car but the agent would not agree without additional payment to which I did not think was fair.Reviewed Apr 26 2021

Pros:Great car Mazda CX-5. Easy dropoff (contactless - just leave the keys in the car and go).Cons:As seems to be the new norm, the wait for pickup was much longer than it needed to be. Hire enough staff please.Reviewed Jul 1 2021

Car broke downPros:Clean, easy checkout.Cons:The car broke down and had to be towed. It was a holiday weekend so they told me no cars are available. The tow truck took 6 hrs to arrive and they charged me the full rental price even though i only had the car for 3 hours. It was inconvenient and had caused me quite a bit of money for cab ride/uber. The service rep told me they'd call me back but never did. I was on the phone with their rep for hours trying to get them to get a tow truck or replacement car.Reviewed Oct 7 2016
