Scam artistd
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Not all hertz are shady but this specific location in Torrance is a BAD IDEA. The guy is a con artist but luckily not s very good one. I'm sure this location will be shut down in a year or so, it's already on it's way from the looks of it.

Cons: Pickup wasnt easy I was late only 2hrs because of traffic jam so they said they rented to some on else which was lie and then they try to give me full size car so I agreed and paid more. The person was in charge didnt even walk tthrough and handed me keys as soon as I opened the car door it smelled like pot , I was very upset. I was driving in freeeway the left side of tire started making noise, I called they send me to nearest airport and that took my another 2 hours so I had a very bad day. I asked for area manager phone and they were hasitate to give me made me more upset. I will never ever rent hetz rental car.

Cons: When reserving a car online, it said the Hertz location was open until 6pm. I got there at 5:30, and no one was there. The hotel check in told me they close at 5pm. It needs to be changed online. So I went to a competitor and rented a car there.

Everything was good except lack of USB ports
Pros: Pickup in Torrance and dropoff at LAX was easy and friendly. The car was mostly fine -- it even had satellite radio.
Cons: No modern car that lacks USB ports should be rented out. When people are traveling, this is a basic need. Similarly, no cars (especially hatchbacks and SUVs) should be rented out without a trunk cover. Travelers have luggage they need to hide from plain view. This car sort of had a cover (it was more like the spare tire cover) that I was able to rig up as a trunk cover, but it wasn't ideal.

Great value and service
Pros: The rental car was very affordable . The rental process was quick and easy.
Cons: The only issue I had was that I reserved the car for noon because I needed to pick it up on my lunch hour and the location was closed from noon until 1 for lunch which was not noted on the website when I made the reservation. So I had to wait an hour and was late getting back to work.

Great deal
Pros: The price was great, easy return, and the employee working was very professional.
Cons: I arrived on a Sunday, just after opening to pick up my car there was a line. Only 1 employee was working, and I kept hearing the employee tell everyone that the cars had not been cleaned yet, and it would be an additional 15-20 min. I was in a hurry and took mine without a cleaning. It wasn't too bad on the inside, so it worked out. No other complaints.

Kayak online service overbooked
Pros: Kayak online service overbookedI had to drive 20 minutes to arrive to a location to pick up the rental only to be told that
Cons: I drove about 20 minutes to pick up my rental, only to be told that my reservations online were invalid, and that all vehicles were booked. The staff was nice and offered an appology, but this was an inconvenience that could have been avoided.

No car
Cons: I had set up a car to be rented at a certain time. 30 minutes after projected pickup I showed up at the counter. I was told there would be no car available for 5.5 hours. I was basically told sorry. You will have to deal with it. I called and complained and was told to just wait 30-45 minutes and hopefully a car shows up. One finally did. I proceeded on my way. However when I book a car, I expect it to be there. If I am charged for not picking a car up then they need to make it right when I book a car and one is not there.

Don't accommodate!!
Pros: Nothing!
Cons: I reserved a car rental on Kayak.com. But, when I went to Enterprise in Torrance, CA..to pick up the car I was told that I could not rent a car without a credit card. I gave my debit bank card with 2 forms of ID, but was told that I had to have a major credit card or an electric bill with my debt card and with that, I had to rent a car in the city in which I lived. Also, I was told that I would have to call an Enterprise Car Rental place in the area in which I lived to see if they could switch my reservations. I explained to the clerk at the front desk that I worked in the Torrance area down the street and reserved a rental there for convenience. But, that was not good enough. So, I had to go elsewhere at the last minute. I went across the street to Avis Car Rental, they were much more friendlier, professional, and accommodating. So, in my opinion..I give two Thumbs down to Enterprise. Don't Accommodate!!

Cons: My complaint is that they charged an extra $2. It’s the principle not the $2. My online reservation said total $37.99 plus tax and in the end I was charged 39.99 plus tax. If they get an extra $2 for every customer, that’s a lot! And why should I book it online if the price is not honored?

Pros: Location of facility was not bad.
Cons: Low staffed location, took very long to get vehicle. Did not get my compact car which I wanted "to easily navigate LA streets. Was put in a pick up truck which had stains on driver seat and front / rear carpets. Drop off was horrendous. No one present in car return. Was told by multiple staff that someone was outside at podium to receive returns and there wasn't. Was forced to be rude to staff members in order to have someone do my car return. Will not rent from this location again.

Avis Fail
Pros: Nothing, because I didn't get a car. When I arrive they told me they were out of cars and wouldn't have been any back in for two days. When I asked if they could help me find a car at another location they said they could not.
Cons: I didn't like anything about it because I didn't get to go on my vacation because I didn't get a car at Avis because they were sold out even though I had a reservation. Avis sucks

Pros: Great car.
Cons: It took FOREVER. Could Budget be less efficient? I was behind a Romanian with a Maryland driver's license and Budget couldn't cope. Then my agent slow walked my forms. Then I got ferried to another facility where I waited while the car was cleaned. This was during my lunch break from work.

Do not book budget at Santa Clarita new hall ranch
Pros: Nothing. Well wait, actually journey was playing when I walked in, so there's that!
Cons: Location did not have cars when arrived. Waited two extra hours. Had to book directly thru enterprise. Missed flight connection. Uber and taxi fees to and from this location twice to try and pickup.
