When I arrived at the airport with my reservation I had to wait over 45 minutes for a vehicle, I was given a huge SUV with 60,000 miles on it with expired license plates and several things wrong with it, the engine light was on, change oil soon, navigation system not working and did I mention it had over 60,000 miles and the windows were filthy dirty. I had to return the car after 48 hours which meant I had to drive over 100 miles. I was told I wouldn’t be charged for the gas for my inconvenience and then it was on my bill, all in all a pretty bad experience other than the people behind the counter at GRR trying to be as helpful as possible.

Pros:

The drop off was super easy.

Cons:

I think I was fooled into paying that ~$23 for a car with gas. I did not use very much gas at all in the <24hrs that I had the car and the gas prices were so cheap in Michigan. I honestly probably used less than $8 worth of gas. I am from California so I did not know any better, I guess.

Being disclosed about the deposit and them preferring credit cards would be great. My credit card had gotten stolen so I only had a debit on me and was charged a $500 deposit because of that. Of course you get it back, but it’s an inconvenience. My plane landed late, they gave away the car I originally booked… I was only 30 mins late to pick up. The line itself was long so I spent another 10-15 mins waiting which is fine ! But just to say, it’s odd they gave away the car I booked so quickly. Whatever. At least I got a car, but it still was far from a smooth experience.

I ordered a small SUV which wasn't available. National agent gave me a large NEW SUV and LYING said will all the updates it was great on gas mileage. After an hour was already down 1/4 tank. Played with the buttons and found instead of 30mpg the other would have gotten, I was getting 17mpg. I had 700 miles to drive. Called National and was told to go to nearest airport to exchange. Filled up gas outside of airport (1/2 hour out of way) and called to ask where to park to transfer items to new car. National desk rep said they would not exchange. Would end rental and rent me a new car. I would have to pay for BOTH! After a full on rant by me, the rep finally agreed to give me a tank of gas. Never National again!!
