First time user, positive experiencePros:Full disclosure, I did agree to a last-minute SUV upgrade which I never do, but it put us in a brand new Toyota 4Runner, just over 700 miles -- and it was a time when San Diego had a massive rain storm hit so it came in handy for visibility, handling. Prices were reasonable, pickup was good, but the signs at this location were a little small and not in plain view like the big car rental companies. Agent was fast and pleasant to deal with, ran through the typical offers of extra insurance, gas fill dropoff, etc. Directed us to upper-level garage. Finally found the pickup booth, handed confirmation papers then walked a ways down to do the initial damage inspection. Walked back up to booth, finalized paperwork, got the keys and we were off. SUV was nice overall, no smoke smell, etc. It wasn't spotless inside or out but it wasn't anything that would be noticeable to most non-Type A folks. Good space, backup camera was used extensively. Drop off was much better, good signs. Pulled right up, unpacked while agent reviewed mileage and confirmed gas gauge was full, very quick and no issues.Cons:SUV was backed into parking spot in a packed garage so we had to pull it out to pack our bags into the trunk. It was also at the far end of the garage so I had to walk down there to do the pre-review damage assessment leaving my family to wait by the booth. Of course, both issues may be our fault for the last-minute upgrade so it wasn't a big deal.Reviewed 27 Feb. 2017

Cons:Poor service. Rude customer service. Car unavailability, requested a full size car, ended up driving a minivan. Then they tried to upgrade me into a minivan when paying knowing that they were the only options on the lot after we paid. Made it very challenging to get an exchange the next day. If you want to pay less for an older car, with tons of mileage, don't care if the reservation is available for you at the time of pick up, and like to deal in a bunch of teens that are more rude than helpful- this is your rental company!Reviewed 27 Nov. 2016

Car was good but customer service was notPros:The car was clean and nice and drove wellCons:The customer service at the drop-off location was pretty bad. They made my husband dig through everything to find the contract because they couldn't just pull it up in the system. She didn't tell us which shuttle went to LAX and there was another couple with us there unloading their car and they actually had to ask her. She was not friendly and seemed like we were annoying her. When my husband went in to close out everything he said she didn't explain things clearly that would be on the bill and was being very rude. This is not how you want to end your trip, being treated bad, so we will not be renting from them again .Reviewed 21 Dec. 2016

definitely a bargain brandPros:the price!Cons:The front desk was closed at 10:30 pm with no sign and or notice of where to find employees. Finally found them at the actual pick up kiosk. The car had a super smudged windshield with some cleaner, because a simple wipe didn't do it. It was super annoying driving the car like that. The glove compartment was also busted, which I didn't see at first in the dark. Definitely renting form a bargain retailer.Reviewed 3 Nov. 2016

Good service but they gave me a small carPros:The service was good and the car worked fineCons:It was late at night and we had to wait over 45 minutes in the line. I got a car that was smaller than what I had reserved and I ended up having to run two trips to the airport and back in order to accommodate everyone. Then I didn't get a refund for the more expensive car until after I came back and asked for it after I left San DiegoReviewed 17 Apr. 2017

Terrible Rental Car CompanyPros:Nothing! Service was mediocre at best. Selection of cars was poor. Condition of car was poor. Upsell on insurance was pushy and winshield cost mentioned several times (our windshield had a large chip in the drivers view). Customer service did not answer one time over several days, no one to check us in upon return - only one person in the onsite office.Cons:Everything! See above.Reviewed 9 Oct. 2016

Terrible customer service.Pros:Good value. Easy drop off. Clean.Cons:The guy downstairs that rang us up offered a upgrade for a little more money which was totally worth it. Get upstairs, and they did not have a vehicle that fit the upgrade. I had to go back downstairs which now the line is 5 people deep and wait for a half hour to get my bill adjusted. When I finally get back to him he tells me the girl upstairs could had adjusted it for me but she still insists she could not. Get it together people. Go somewhere else. Who wants to deal with this to start their vacation?Reviewed 8 Nov. 2016
