Anonymous Canberra Airport 14 March 2018
Proximity to airport, very efficient staff. Car was in excellent condition. I would still prefer to have the choice of manual or auto. Price differences between cities.

Car is OK cheap to refuel runs well on the highway The design of the car is very low in the front and it is in many cases lower than curbs that you park against. It is easy to touch the curb when parking
