Just got home from our vacation at 1:30 this morning. Took a version of a trip that we did in 2010. We flew into Vegas, drove to Monterey,(where we spent 3 days), spent a couple of days in Simi Valley, spent some time in San Bernadino, and drove back to Vegas for some time there. Flew into Vegas last Tuesday afternoon. Had reservations for a full sized car with Hertz. The disaster started when I reported to the Hertz kiosk at McCarran Airport. I was in back of two very upset groups of people from Europe and saw some of the most rude behavior that I had ever seen from a business in my life. The rude, condescending, sarcastic behavior of these workers was unbelievable. Thirty five minutes later, it was my turn. Went to the counter with my reservation number and of course they wanted to upgrade me on my dime. I politely responded "no thanks." They then started in on their fuel program and collision waiver and I again politely responded "no thanks." I then got told that I "needed to listen to him and if I put one scratch on his car that I would be charged." I told him that if I want to be screwed and tattooed, that it was my prerogative to do so. However, I would be using my iphone to document the condition of his vehicle. He decided that he would expedite the process at that point and gave me paper work and keys. My "full size" car was a thoroughly dinged and scratched 2012 Mitsubishi Galant with 57K miles on it. It looked like it had done some long-term parking in the gorilla cage at the San Diego Zoo, and frankly I have seen nicer vehicles at a BHPH lot. Even though I was somewhat flabbergasted that a Galant was a full size car, I was more shocked and dismayed at the condition of it. Even though it had been vacuumed out, the insides of the windows were so filthy that I had to stop at a Walmart to get glass cleaner and paper towels to clean them so I could see out of them. As the car salesman in the movie "Vacation" said, "you think you hate it now, just wait until you drive it." I had never driven a Mitsubishi before but this has to be one of the cheapest cars that I have ever driven. The ride was harsh, the plastic inside was cheap, the steering wheel was slippery and hard to grip and my right leg still hurts from the positioning that was required to drive it and my back still hurts from the cheap, unsubstantial, unsupportive seats. On the positive side, it had good A/C. This car was so cheap that it didn't even have an input jack to plug an ipod in. The steering was loose and it was in definite need of front shocks/struts given the amount of bounce in the front end. It also had a tendency to hesitate when additional power was required, and several times stumbled and almost stalled at idle. The mileage was not impressive IMO. I figure that I got 25.61 MPG overall (57.542 gal/1474 miles.) I'll run down the fill ups along the way: Brand of fuel/Location/Price/Miles on tank/Gallons pumped/Calculation of mileage: Chevron Bakersfield, Ca. $4.25.9 339.1 mi. 12.679 gal 26.74mpg Quik Stop Monterey, Ca. $3.95.9 326.7 mi. 14.149 gal 23.08mpg Costco Oxnard, Ca. $3.87.9 364.9 mi. 13.147 gal 27.75mpg Shell San Bernardino,Ca. $4.07.9 173.9 mi. 6.684 gal 26.01mpg Chevron Las Vegas, Nev. $3.85.9 269.4 mi. 10.883 gal 24.75mpg Stop #4 was a top off before returning to Vegas and #5 was prior to return. Fun trip. Not a great car. Not bad enough to ruin the trip. Doubt I'll return to Hertz.
