Overall, a good experiencePros: The car was brand new and ran well, getting fantastic gas mileage without being underpowered. Pickup at Liverpool Airport was extremely friendly, no upsell. I like the "fuel option," where they sell you a tank of gas but agree to cancel the sale if you bring it back full. In my case, with a very tight connection at my dropoff, I was grateful to be able to come in empty.Cons: Car's handbrake was not adjusted right, so that it would not hold on very steep grades.
