Advantage Car Rental - Rental Car Not in Good Condition
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA -- I rented a car from this company on July 2. Shortly thereafter on a drive to Rock Hill (30 miles away), I noticed that the low tire pressure light had come on. It's 9PM and I'm on a highway in a wooded area now having to find a full service station to check the tire and insure I don't have a blow out. (Try finding a full service station at that time). But thank God, I was able after a pretty frustration period of time to get help.
The next day, while in Uptown Charlotte, I light went on again. I went to the gas station and they put in more air, hoping that would be all it took until I returned the car the following morning. The gas station attendant observed that Advantage rents cars in this condition all the time.
The next day as I'm returning the car to the airport the light comes on again. I ask the rental employee to note that on my receipt as she told me to speak with the manager, Larry [snip], about my experience.
The manager was not in, so I relayed my experience to the counter personnel and asked that an adjustment be made to my bill. The next day someone called me back to inform me that they were subtracting $5 from my total bill of $113. What an insult. This rental company is a joke.
Do yourself a favor and do not rent any cars from them. If you do, check carefully that the cars are in good condition. They clearly rented me a car that was not in good condition.
