. I was very happy New car. Really pleasant staff. No hard sell but sensible discussion. Unless I discover a subsequent issue my preferred renter
MARINDAMarch 20, 2017
Staff very friendly and helpful and added an extra driver free of charge.
We had to pump up one of the tyres when we reached our destination.

Professionally acquitted

Plenty of room in the car.
a few scratches.
February 21, 2017
Car was spotless.
Rental desk was off-line which delayed the release of the car excessively. Counter assistant would initially not accept the voucher on my smartphone. Eventually her supervisor authorised the transaction.The second disappointment was the car's high mileage (41 000km) and an intrusive mechanical drone (diff whine?). But fine otherwise.

Friendly staff.
Car not quite up to usual standard. Only 4k from service. Window switch on passenger side faulty. Company very quick to take R3k deposit but not quick to refund at end of hire. This, however, is a problem with all SA rental companies. Last time it took a month.
ValerieDecember 24, 2016

High mileage of car slight unbalanced wheel
LindiweOctober 31, 2016
The helpful staff when my credit card was not accepted.
The fact that I was not told in time that my credit card will not be accepted because it was printed.
October 26, 2016
Friendly and diligent staff. A very good quality vehicle that although apparently well used was well turned out
AngelaSeptember 27, 2016
Convenient pick up and drop off
Car body was in poor condition which included a loose side panel. It was also a lower grade car than the one booked and this wasn't brought to my attention by the staff.
PetrusSeptember 20, 2016
Friendly ness of the staff

YINGHAOAugust 26, 2016
the car is good for family trip and off-roading. diesel engine is powerful and trustworthy.
the reverse light is NOT working for the car. other than that everything is ok.
August 21, 2016
Car very clean. Fast charge back money.
It was impossible to find First Car Rental office in Nelspruit. They should give information not only for the main office, in Johannesburg Airport, but also for different returning location.
ManetteAugust 16, 2016
Staff were friendly & just wanted to help where they could so offered a 'bigger' car to what we had booked.
Unfortunately the 'change' was a relatively old car that had the space but not the fuel economy or nippiness that we were looking for.
peterAugust 3, 2016
Staff excellent Manageress very helpful with the problem I had
Nothing too add here

RonaldJuly 12, 2016
Very helpful staff at Johannesburg Airport but much better service at Durban Airport where I dropped off the car
I picked up the car at 21.30 it was dark.Only when I got to Kwa Zulu Natal did I realise that the right rear light was not working?I looked through the lens & noticed there was no globe?I tried to phone from Balito but was told to hold on,it took so long to hang on I put the phone down.This car should have been checked by your staff prior

Car was comfortable.
May 19, 2016
the car had lots of minor scratches on picking up, this took time to mark these down on the paperwork, thus taking upto an hour to drive away.
May 5, 2016
Although they said the car was same category, only thing it matched was both are Auto gear. I ordered Nissan TIIDA but got Honda BRIO which was less engine power, smaller wheel size etc.
JOHNApril 20, 2016
did not state engine size
April 11, 2016
Very easy to retrieve the car as well as handing it back.
April 3, 2016
just about everthing
No complaints at all
March 16, 2016
The service was great. Friendly staff and very efficient. The car was clean, ready and really easy to drive.
There was not enough choice of cars. I was not given the car I was promised.
March 16, 2016
Comfortable, great boot
Car underpowered - did not cope well when aircon activated.
March 15, 2016
Very helpful staff Clear information
Nothing so far Waiting to get my invoice & deposit returned at present
March 1, 2016
Change of car (due to service) in Durban proceeded with no Problems. Personal were very helpfull. Had to wait a while but we received a higher category car. Thank you !!
The car we received in Johannesburg was due to be serviced after ca. 1500 km (we booked the car for 6 weeks car). We had to organize a change of car in Durban.
March 1, 2016
The staff were very friendly and understanding when I hadn't understood the rental requirements and were able to help me with alternate arrangements.
I did not feel that the third party rental site explained the upfront holding costs adequately. THese were only "explained" in the contract terms and agreements after I had clicked on the button to book the car. Having been a driver of a Ford Fiesta, I did not feel that a Hinda Jazz was an equivalent car.
March 1, 2016
Good service. Clean car economical.
Computer was not working when I took the car but still good service.
March 1, 2016
Unfortunately the car had a flat battery on Saturday morning so had to try and find jumper leads and with help managed to push start the car, got to my meeting late but First Car did come and swop the car for me.
DouglasFebruary 29, 2016
Friendly service.
Not clear on rental car site what the deposit will be for advance planning purposes. Car was underpowered, will have to get a bigger one next time.

EvarDecember 25, 2015
Promptness of service, the car condition and performance.
Car booked wasn't available, hired a GPS gadget from the company that wasn't charging so worked 20% of time.
December 7, 2015
I like the fact that you gave me the serviced car.
FranciscoNovember 3, 2015

Not really easy to know some terms and conditions of the agreement.

September 30, 2015
Loved the car , the build in sat nav was fantastic and proved very useful
Having to give it back
KolekileSeptember 29, 2015
The service was excellent and the car was super.
August 15, 2015
The booking went really smooth. There was a mixup with two of my email adresses that was sorted by staff on the phone.
The additional cost for glass insurance, extra driver, nav, etc. etc. etc. made it a really bad experience cost-wise. Picking up was really,.... really slow :-(
PatrickAugust 12, 2015
Friendliness of staff and reliability of vehicle
Some interior trim issues and sunroof worked intermittently
ChristopherAugust 2, 2015
