6.0 Good30 Dec 2016
Nice, a bit pushy.Pros: The individual who rented me the car was polite and helpful, but was too pushy for me to get their insurance. He spent 15 minutes trying to convince me to get even the basic package. Also, when we filled our car up for the first time we noticed it only filled to 3/4 of a tank and wouldn't take anymore. Not sure if this was a faulty gas Guage or what the situation was.

3.6 Mediocre2 Jun 2020
Cons: I was directed to the wrong pick up location which was difficult to find and was closed. Upon calling Hertz for information and waiting for 20 minutes the individual I spoke with had poor command of the English language and gave me incorrect information. I found the alternate pick up location and was charged approximately $38 more than the quoted amount for the rental. Have yet to be refunded my security deposit. Wondering if all this is due to Hertz bankruptcy.
10.0 Excellent11 Feb 2020
Pros: Staff very friendly and never felt pushed for add onsCons: Parking is terrible. Had to park 2 blocks away to return rental.
8.0 Excellent5 Jan 2019

8.4 Excellent19 Jun 2018
Pros: Jordan took the time to provide a car for me although they were sold out and no longer accepting applications. He was very attentive and supportive as to my credit card situation. He worked with me and overall was awesome in assisting me. Thank you Jordan!Cons: Well, I was charged double the rental agreement!!! I returned the car and when I was checking out, the attendant gave me the final chargeable amount. I am appalled that the rate was more than doubled.
3.2 Mediocre16 Apr 2018
Pros: It was very small but more expensive than the previous car. Was not clean. Workers were good.
8.4 Excellent25 Feb 2018
All the scratches made me nervousPros: Easy reservation online Able to tweek the hours to get the best deal - I was going to rent for 48 hours but after tweaking the return time, I figured I can rent extra 4 hours for the almost same price.Cons: It says Toyota “or equivalent” and it never is Toyota. All the scratches already present on the car made me nervous about whether Hertz would blame me for any of those to me when I returned the car. Pictures were taken but still worried me. Had 3/4 gas in the tank, but I like the way U-Haul does it.. pick up the car with a full tank and return with a full tank.
9.2 Excellent8 Oct 2017

ExcellentPros: A very smooth ride. I felt like we were riding on pillows. Was surprised how well the gas mileage was for such a big car. Plenty of space for coolers, luggage and etc.Cons: Neither of the cigarette plugs worked for our cell phone chargers

DisasterCons: Avis confirmed my pick-up time, but they decided to close early. Leaving me and my family stranded. Avis support said to go to San Diego airport??? Hour plus south of where we were going. Got a Taxi to LA instead. Never again Avis :(.
7.2 Good5 Jan 2018
Cons: Pick up agent recorded a full tank of gas when the car actually had a half tank. Agent at drop off disputed this and customer service were originally unwilling to credit me, but came around when I became frustrated. A hiccup I could have done without, but many thanks to the customer service agent on the phone for sorting.

Terrible Avis location..RUDE RUDE RUDECons: I reserved a car at 1 pm on Thursday for pickup on Friday morning at 8 am. When I arrived they did not have a car and said they wouldn't have one until 5 PM. Not only did they not have the car I reserved but the " customer service rep" was extremely rude about the situation. He claimed that I should have called to make sure a car was available. I thought that's what the reservation was for?!?
4.4 Okay26 Oct 2015
$13 for no receipt when I filled up tankCons: they charged me $13 because I did not have a gas receipt even though I did fill up the tank without getting a receipt.
