Two times I made the reservation for the same specific car but each time I get the same size but another brand. Maybe to present actual portfolio of brands then to offer "replacement"

Everything was good. At one point the car's seat belt sign went on while driving. So had to stop, turn off/on the ignition and it went away. I guess some error in the sensor.
Anonymous Los Angeles Airport 05 June 2018
The lady over the counter who helped me with the booking is friendly, helpful and patient. The car condition is quite bad. When we are on our third day it pop up a message that engine oils needs to replace. When we are driving from LA to LV we are driving about 70-75 miles/hour the car swirl every badly that we need to slow down the speed which makes us quite worry if the car can do a long drive which we are driving the require speed.

Very reliable vehicle, easy to drive, excellent conditions. Quick rental desk Didnt really explain how the tolls worked at the rental desks. It is not that obvious for a foreigner to understand the system

The entire process of hiring was simple and straight forward. The customer service assistants were very friendly. I also liked the mobile navigation package that included unlimited wifi. We were able to connect up to 5 devices in the car, at the hotel and even at Disneyland CA! Overall, it was great value for money.

Very sustainable car. Staff members aren't friendly enough
Sandeep Los Angeles Airport 13 February 2018
I had booked a Jeep Cherokee wanting an All Wheel Drive. However, Jeep had been withdrawn by Thrifty due to safety concerns and the other 'like for like' cars were all 2WD. I was travelling to Yosemite National Park and with anticipated snow definitely wanted a 4x4. The staff found one 4x4(Nissan Pathfinder) and gave it for the same price. There was little information on the website about which cars are 4x4. Also, even though the Jeep Cherokee was withdrawn, it was still showing as available. We were offered to buy (and bought) a one off paid pass for toll roads/bridges. Though useful, no where on the website is this option mentioned.
Anonymous Los Angeles Airport 05 February 2018
Staff are not as aggressive as other rental car companies in trying to get you to take out additional cover or upgrade your car. Their cars are always clean and there is usually a good choice of models to choose from. They are the only rental car company I use on my USA trips.

The whole experience was excellent and I appreciate everything the company did for me. I even had a unfortunate incident with a small scratch while parking and with the insurance I bought, it was hassle free.
Anonymous Los Angeles Airport 11 January 2018
The attendant at the counter was a delight. As there was a problem with getting our mid size suv we were given a much bigger car which turned out to be very useful and comfortable. Whilst picking up the car we had to wait over an hour in the garage unit with no seats and no idea what was going on. Finally a man came to tell us there had been an issue with his washer and we would get the next available full size suv which he assured us was fine.

Anonymous Los Angeles Airport 03 January 2018
Staffs were very helpful. There was a problem when picking up the car, but the staff did what they can to address the issue as quickly as possible. The vehicle I requested (SUV) was not available. Then, I was given an upgrade and given a car, which turned out to have a mechanical problem, so the staffs replaced the car again. The entire process took about 1 hour.

The car was clean and ran well. It was comfortable and we were able to fit all of our suitcases, as well as all of us. The pick up and drop off service was fast and efficient. The headrests on the drivers seat were very uncomfortable (Nissan Rogue)
