Bad service during pick-up.Pros:Car was very comfortable, reliable, and gas efficient.Cons:The front desk coordinator ended up sending me to the wrong lot to pick up my car, even when I went back to him to confirm the location since I couldn't find my car the first time he sent me there. He even seemed impatient with me when I went back to ask him where to go. Once I got in the wrong car, I was told by the gate staff that I couldn't take this car, and to bring it back and ask them where I should go for the correct car. This wasted 20 minutes of my very rushed and tight-run morning, all because some idiot front desk clerk was too prideful to be open to the fact that he sent me to the wrong place initially.Reviewed 28 May 2019

Pushy salesman almost ruined the experiencePros:There was a limited selection of intermediate / midsized cars but I knew from the size of the infotainment screen on the 2017 Corolla that there were going to be some nice features. Though I was disappointed by the lack of Apple / Android integration, the active cruise control, active lane keep assist (limited but present) and the frontal crash prevention (tested once!) were nice on long trips as well as congested city driving.Cons:The salesperson tried everything in the book to convince me that I needed more insurance and assumed I wanted an upgrade from the Manager's Special pricing. He probed me regarding how and where I was going to use the vehicle so he could suggest more upgrades or services. It wasn't really subtle and I declined his pressing requests. I saw an additional $4 tacked on my bill compared to what was quoted when I left the airport.Reviewed 20 Aug. 2018
