Budget Rent-A-Car Complaint - Worst Truck Rental Experience Ever
The truck they rented us for over $300/day was the biggest rip off I've ever lost money to. The truck hadn't been maintained for it's last two "Maintenance Periods", posted right there in the cab; the air conditioning was broken, the wipers didn't work, the box leaked rain on my mattresses, and the check engine light came on after 50 miles and the truck ran like crap at 55mph.
I had to drive it in the middle of summer, 1500 miles through Georgia, Alabama, and Florida in 95 degree heat with the AC blowing hot as hell. I called for some compensation on the $966 they took me for, and they gave me a run-around and just %15 back for all the bs.
I will NEVER rent from them again, I don't care what kind of deal they're offering. If it takes a few hundred more to use a real rental company like Uhaul, that's just what you have to do.
Terrible service, and they really don't care.
