Dollar Rental Car - Don't Rent From Dollar

Complaint

DENVER, COLORADO -- Here's my story: 3 days into my car rental, my car would not start in the morning. I called the Dollar roadside assistance and they told me that it sounded like a dead battery from my description. At that point I looked at the headlight switch thinking I left the lights on, but the switch was in the off position. They had a person come out and jump start the car. He did a quick check of the charging system and said it wasn't working properly and to return the car without shutting it off as it may not start again. I drove 90 miles roundtrip to exchange this car and wasted half a day of vacation due to this problem, not to mention the gas I paid to drive the extra 90 miles. At the end of my rental I was charged $58.95 towing fee for the jump start. Dollar says there was nothing wrong with the car and refuses to take this charge off my bill.

Have you disputed the charges on your credit card?

Yes, I've disputed the charges. I'm waiting on the result. Thanks!

Holy smokes! How absurd. Good luck with this.

In a perfect world, the service person would report that diagnosis back to the company, and they would know that you were TOLD to return the car.
