Pros:Trip was cancelled due to the pandemic. The cancellation process was terrible and stressful. Having to wait until 3 days prior to arrival in light of this pandemic was awfulReviewed 26 Apr. 2020

Deceptive pricing. Renter Beware.Pros:Rental car was clean, roomy and got good gas mileage. Comfortable and handled well in snowy conditions. GPS worked very well even in remote areas of northern New Mexico.Cons:Slow leak in left rear tire required continual filling. At pickup I was informed that I could not use my Bank of America debit card. This meant that my traveling companion needed to use her card which added approximately $200 more for the rental (extra driver and other charges). I was quoted $230 online but ended up paying around $560. At pick up the woman at the counter said I could sign up for a top-up refill at $1.98 a gallon which I did. At return, I was charged for an entire tank of gas at $1.98, not a top-up. I will not use Dollar Car Rental again.Reviewed 25 Apr. 2016

Pros:The ABQ airport only has one rep that covers 5 different companies. It would have been nice to know before hand that hertz was coving the dollar rentals.Reviewed 19 Feb. 2021

had a problem with the carPros:The second car we had was fine -- not as nice as the first, but it worked and got us there. We had a problem with the first car (tire pressure warning light), but after some protests on our part (They couldn't figure out how to start the time for our new car -- they kept the original time we picked up the first car that was faulty!), they finally deducted $15 from our overall charge to compensate for additional time. Wish we'd gotten as nice a car as our first for our replacement, but at least it worked.Cons:A few miles away from the rental agency, a warning light went on and we had to go back to the airport to trade it in. It was very difficult to figure out how to do that. (I found it hard to believe this had never happened before.) We finally got another car but no one could figure out how to clock the new time out for the rental car (so we wouldn't be charged for the hour plus we had spent dealing with replacing the car). However, our insistence prompted the manager to finally take $15 off of the total price to compensate us.Reviewed 8 Aug. 2018

Cons:When I asked to extend my rental for 5 more hours the girl at the desk said she would have to rebook the entire weekend and quoted me a price of almost $200 more that what I have already booked. when I asked why she was charging me almost $200 more for 5 more hours she said that they couldn't just add one more rental day onto my reservations that she needed to rebook the entire reservation, loosing my price deal that I had signed up for and rebooking at top dollar of $75 per day for a basic, bottom line economy car. I declined the offer, kept my original reservation and rented another car on sunday from a different agency- never again will I use Dollar or anyone associated w/them!Reviewed 27 Mar. 2017

Cons:No more than 15 minutes after picking up our car the dashboard light for tire issues came on. We got off Route 25; found a gas station; had to buy a tire gauge because air pumps rarely have them anymore. Identified the tire that was low and continued from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. The following evening the light came on again. I took the car to a tire shop where they were unable to locate a leak but found that the valve stem was loose. They tightened it and I proceeded on my way. Two days later the light came on again. This time I called Dollar which was, of course, a very time consuming process. Ultimately the man with whom I spoke arranged with Hertz(!) at the Santa Fe Airport to give us another car. The process of getting there and making the swap and returning to Santa Fe took probably half a day off our vacation. The following day the tire warning on the "new" car came on. I returned to the tire place where they determined 2 of the tires were low. When we returned to Dollar at ABQ Airport the outside woman who checked us in was very friendly. She sent us to the inside counter where we recounted the story; and the young man told us he could credit us $25. We asked for a manager. He went in to her office and returned saying he could credit us $25. We demanded to see the manager who came out and ultimately took one day off our rental cost. We felt that was entirely inadequate compensation for all the time we lost and the anxiety we felt at various points. Neither the manager nor the man who reported to her ever so much as expressed regret about our experience, let alone actually offer an apology. I will never rent a car from Dollar/Thrifty again.

over sold on insurancePros:good high mileage car, clean and handled well easy in and outCons:sales of insurance. When I returned home , I discovered that what I was told my insurance and credit card would not cover actually did. They looked on computer while talking to me but wouldn't share screen to show me. I pointed this out to the counter person but they insisted it didn't apply in NM. Being tired, hot, and worn out, I added the extras they were pushing. They also made it sound like Santa Fe had a high auto theft and damage rate making it seem like if you didn't buy the insurance you'd be left in the desert. Will definitely be posting on social media. Signage was poor- couldn't tell one company from another.Reviewed 16 Apr. 2017

Pros:Everything about the car was greatCons:Customer Service was horrible and I felt like I was not important to Dollar as a customer. I was ignored on many occasions during the pick up and drop off. Same agent took attended to me each time. Very unprofessional and unwilling. Also made a reservation for one price and ended up paying almost $70 more than the reservation! I will never rent from Dollar again.Reviewed 13 Apr. 2017

Rate was too good to be true.Cons:The rate that I was quoted was not even close to what I paid. Dollar has a no debit card policy, if you are renting local. Adding a credit card meant adding another driver which meant almost tripling my rate. On top of that customer service was non existent. One person working two counters (thrify and Dollar). Phone customer service is outsourced to the Middle East, which made it ver difficult to ask questions and get answers (I needed to add a day). The local phone number does not work, no one answers and no one ever called me back. Overall pretty disappointed!Reviewed 20 Mar. 2017
