The Nissan Rogue is a keeper. When traveling cross country from NY to MN, I hit a patch of rough winter weather. This vehicle performed beautifully and the Rochester Hertz gave it to me as an upgrade; so thankful for that. The one recommendation to Hertz that I would make: in addition to providing the street address for the Hertz counter associated with both pick-up and drop-off, provide the customer with additional information such as "at the airport, inside the terminal, near arrivals." Despite possessing an intimate familiarity with the MN location, I had difficulty locating the counter.
