The car's wheel alignment and balance was off, although having g a relatively low mileage. When driving up to 100km/ph the car seems to loose balance.

I always rent from Budget due to excellent customer care and affordable prices of all times. The recent experience of lower prices on a week long rental quite came as a great surprise. I would recommend Budget to anyone.
