Pros:That location was massively understaffed. I went in for my rental at 2, but didn’t leave until 3. The poor staff was extremely professional, but clearly very stressed out. The first car they gave me kept telling me there was no “key” in the car, and I could not track a single employee down to help me. Eventually, they swapped the car out, but I ended up missing my appointment due to the hour delay.Reviewed 14 Jul. 2020

Pros:The car was very comfortable to ride and had lot of good passenger security features. You San Diego Clerk was very prompt in service. Car was easy to locate with the location number.Cons:I did not get the size of the car I booked , instead I got much larger car that was kind of too big and bulky for my needs (single rider) and expensive on Gas. While checking in, I forgot to return the key and the checking clerk still gave a clean check out slip so I had to come back from the airport aging to return the keys. While at the airport when I was calling you LAX airport office the operator put me on hold for considerable time and then cam back and said that she does not have a number for that office.Reviewed 11 Jul. 2016

Pros:The rate. The first office counter experience. The car.Cons:The car had an almost empty fuel tank. We reported this at the check-out counter and the representative seemed to enter this information into their system. I verbally confirmed that we need to bring the car with an almost empty fuel tank. Upon return, the tank had around 2 more gallons than at checkout. The receiving representatives were unfriendly and moreover they charged a $50+ fuel service fee without notifying me. Thankfully, I checked the receipt. I was told to go to the booth in the garage. The representative in the booth started with suggesting that I'm mistaken and the tank was most probably full. Thankfully again, I had taken the picture of the dashboard at the pick-up and showed it to them. I was planning to let go of the extra gasoline we had in the tank, but the bad attitude and unfriendly manner of the representatives so far made me upset and I demanded a reimbursement. Thankfully they were reasonable enough for refund and reimbursement. In short, a better check-out-in system and friendly and customer-oriented representatives can help a lot here.Reviewed 19 Feb. 2020

Bait and SwitchCons:I reserved a BMW or similar car to drive my boss around. I get there the BMW is not available so they offer me a Hyundai. How is Hyundai a similar car to a BMW. I could have rented the Hyundai for half the price. Needless to say i did not use the reservation.Reviewed 12 Apr. 2017

Great valuePros:The rate was incredible for a different city drop-off.Cons:The actual rental facilities was easy to get to, clean and organized. I was given a Ford Mustang as a full size car that smelled like smoke. It had someone else sunglasses on the visor. Other than that car was fine.Reviewed 13 Dec. 2018
