Pressure in tires was bad. Window washer fluid was basically null. Car servicing needs help.Reviewed 2024 Jan 18

I reserved a large sedan for a trip cross country. When I arrived my only option was a truck. Obviously not happy with it and the additional fuel cost that I would occur during the trip. I kindly asked for a discount and they wouldn’t offer me one, not even 10%. And was told if they charged me for a truck the cost would be double, so be happyReviewed 2023 Oct 11

Pros:staff in nyc was good. but they only had large suvs and trucks available. i only needed a small car. so gas was pricey and ride was a bit bumpy. also car only had a 1/2 tank of gas to start. and car had over 25,000 miles on it. but overall it was really fine. and worked out.Cons:would be better if they had the size of car available that one rented. the staff was really good at juggling but they just didn’t have cars ready. staff in albany airport was great.Reviewed 2020 Sep 13
