Misleading, not well kept vehicle.
Pros: What did I like...my car got 30+ miles to the gallon.
Cons: Misleading advertising for available vehicles, Cars that aren't even made anymore. Ended up in a much smaller car than I though with dirty seats and no cruise control. Won't use again. Other companies like Enterprise actually end up being cheaper because they will not charge you a full 2nd day just additional ours.

Disappointed
Pros: Front desk agent very friendly and as helpful as possible.
Cons: I rented something that appeared to be a small SUV, but the "or similar" turned out to be a Nissan Versa. Seemingly a bit different. I paid for one thing and got something completely different, without compensation. I'm done with Dollar.

Pros: The customer service was totally unsatisfactory and the car was in less than acceptable condition. Upon returning the car I attempted to pay in cash and was told it was not a payment option, I was never informed before hand that credit card was the only method of payment. I strongly doubt I will be doing business with your company in the future.

Poorly maintained car broke down at airport exit
Cons: The car Dollar rented us in the mountains was a disaster. This wasn't a decently designed and constructed compact like a fiesta, but tin can feeling mitsubishi complete with tiny wheels and all dented up. It felt unsafe from the moment we got in it, and stalled and then wouldn't restart as we drove away from the airport, leaving us stuck on the side of the road. The Dollar rental agent wasn't even apologetic. This car should never have been rented out in the colorado mountains in the first place and clearly wasn't inspected (dents) or checked to make sure it was operating properly. I wouldn't rent here again.

Pros: Car was as expected - 4x4, modern, and clean.
Cons: Charged nearly double quoted price. Mileage limitations per day. Insane charge for refilling with gas (which luckily we avoided). Feels like one of those brands where you get a cheap quoted price then they find a way to charge you more with fees and CRAZY expensive insurance, leaving you with a bad taste in your mouth.

Pros: The gas mileage the most. It was a Smooth ride and it fit all of our stuff.
Cons: When we picked up the van we had to wait almost 30 minutes to get it. And I asked to see the guys I'd and he said we don't have any. I asked because he looked dirty and smelled like he hadn't showered in a week. His close were dirty too. When we dropped off the van the lady was rushed and just wanted to get us out of there.

wrong address!!!
Pros: The Kia car was excellent, with a first-class GPS system included, and the Budget attendant (when we found him!) friendly and helpful. The car was in good condition, and they have a good practice of putting a small sticker near existing damage to the car.
Cons: The address given on the communication from Kayak gave the wrong address: P-Schouwburgplein 2, which turns out is the address of the parking ramp where the car is to be dropped off, but not the office where you need to get the contract and key. It's not even an address visible in the area. And Budget didn't answer the phone number provided. It took some time with help from local businesses to find where the actual office was. Very stressful. At the end, you just drop off the car in the parking ramp, no staff available. We are waiting to see the final communication and bill.

Pros: They did give us a bit of a discount, which helped with the added cost of transportation downtown from airport, but it was very upsetting
Cons: My booking was intended to be at the airport. I googled “grand junction car rentals” and it automatically propagated the downtown location for me, but it did not say non airport. It should have been clearer that this was not an airport rental. When I went back on the website after my trip to see what went wrong, it did the same thing. If I change the location that said Grand Junction then I see the top choice is airport, but the original google search automatically put in the downtown location as pick up and drop off. When I do searches in Kayak and other sites it is very clear, but the Enterprise site was not. This was very inconvenient! I’ve never had this happen before.

Booked my rental online...ONLY TO FIND OUT THE CAR
Pros: Nothing. I didn't get a vehicle.
Cons: The fact that my booking was confirmed, yet when I went to the counter, was informed that the website was making bookings for cars that didn't exist. They had absolutely zero available vehicles, yet I was "confirmed" by Alamo/Kayak. Would have wound up stranded in Grand Junction, had it not been for another gentleman who actually did get a vehicle who gave me a ride back to Denver.

Cons: When our flight for the day of our reservation was cancelled due to weather issues and rescheduled for the next day, I called Alamo to revise the reservation. Alamo was going to charge an additional $100 to change our reservation from a seven day to a six day, so I cancelled the reservation and reserved a car for the period we needed it with another agency. The Alamo agent informed me that there would be a $5.00 cancellation charge, which I approved, and that the remainder of the amount charged by Alamo would be refunded. The credit came through, but with a $25.00 cancellation fee. We are going to take up the issue with Alamo, and will not use them again.

No car when I arrived! Horrible!
Pros: Nothing... there was no car!
Cons: No car! I drove 3 hours to pick up a car I reserved with Kayak. I had never used Kayak to reserve and I certainly won't use it or recommend it ever again! When I arrived they said that even though I had a reservation that they were out of cars! No other companies had cars either and it left me totally stranded! How can u make a reservation without making sure the company actually had a car first? Extremely disappointed and very frustrated.

When I showed up to pick up my vehicle let they ha
Cons: When I showed up to pick up my vehicle they had no cars left. I asked to upgrade when they did have more cars driven in from a nearby hertz. They said "those are for the people who reserved a larger car" and that I reserved a economy. I mentioned that they gave away my car so why can't they alow me to have somebody else's and if they would please tell me why they gave away my car. When I asked her to explain she simply said "no" honest to God she said no she won't explain. I recorded this conversation on my phone. Will be happy to send the video of this conversation. I was calm and did not yell. I just simply got "no" for an answer when I asked if she would explain. Was a arrogant horrific answer.

Cracked windshield
Pros: We had a stone kicked up from an 18 wheeler and was concerned about how to handle the issue with Hertz since were didn't take out the extra coverage. We called our insurance and had everything arranged but did have a deductible. When we pulled into Hertz, the al who managed our car in Phoenix gave us a flat rate which was less then our deductible and did it all in one transaction. I had envisioned having to hassle with a manager but it was painless and we paid the flat amount. Car was great and we couldn't have been happier!
Cons: Car wasn't ready she we arrived to Grand Junction, which wasn't a big deal but they did ask us if we would take a smaller car but it turned out the price was higher for the smaller car. We went to lunch and got the bigger car - a Nissan Rogue, which was very ice.
