With only one sporting event left (track and field June 9th), the off season is right there. My trip last week made me think about all the terrible rentals I've had over the years, and what better place to complain about pointless things than off season TKP!
While the suburban I had last week had all the features and was overall not bad, it cost a fortune to fill up and was really big. I could see completely over a jeep grand Cherokee that was in front of me. I barely fit in parking spots. I had to wait for the vehicle to lower when I turned off the power. But it was not the worst vehicle I've had. The top contenders are:
1) a Lincoln Town car in Hawaii that you couldn't take any where because parking spots are way too small. It was about a decade behind on features and took forever to get from the hotel valet because it barely fit on the ramp.
2) A Subaru Impreza that again was bare minimum features, was abdolutely awful to drive and lacked visibility out the front due to a large rearview mirror that was placed in the middle of the windshield. I have never seen a mirror that low in a car up until that point or since. I had to put my head on the steering wheel to see it the front right of the car.
3) The mustang "upgrade" i got when I rented a car after knee surgery (I wasn't allowed to drive my stick shift). It got out accelerated by a toddler on a power wheel. Its doors were so long they rarely ever could open wide in a parking lot which made it really hard to get in and out of with crutches.
Whats the worst rental you've had?
