Shady upsell to a 4WD JeepPros:We were able to exchange vehicles to our original reservation.Cons:Was told by sales clerk that you needed a 4WD in Hawaii due to unpaved roads. We were upsold to upgrade to the only Jeep left for over 2X the price of our original reservation. We were told this Jeep had an automatic roof. The Jeep had a difficult to manually remove 2 section roof. The roads on Hawaii are almost all paved and a 4WD is in fact not necessary. Moreover, driving on an unpaved road was in fact not even allowed per the fine print! Terrible to navigate phone customer service, wasted 2 hours of our time and passed us from rep to rep until one finally admitted they can't do anything. I guess they hoped the customer would just tire and give up?Reviewed 30 Dec. 2016

Cons:I brought the vehicle back full. However there was an automatic fuel charge added. The staff member at car check in told me it was automatic and there was no way he could take it off. In order to get this removed I had to wait in line again at the counter.Reviewed 26 Dec. 2017

Understaffed and a janky carPros:Got an SUV pretty cheap through the Budget Kona location. That's the highlight. Service was okay after waiting for it.Cons:The rental office was not staffed to handle the rush. About 12 people were in line, and initially there were only 2 agents. Those agents dealt with the fastpass people, leaving us peons in line. After an hour we got our car. The car turned out to be a bit of a junker. This is probably Jeep's fault for designing a poor transmission. My Jeep Patriot couldn't pick a gear to save it's life, and the car sat at 4000 rpm when cruise was on. At least I know to never buy a low-end Jeep SUV.Reviewed 23 Mar. 2017
