    Cons: The car did not come with a fob so every door had to be locked and unlocked manually including the trunk. Total pain.
    3.6 Mediocre

    Just don’t do it
    Pros: The only thing about this rental that was satisfactory was the price we paid.
    Cons: We were bullied immediately to pay an extra $11 a day for a “mandatory” insurance in CA (that I’d never heard of before even though we rent cars in CA frequently) and after refusing we’re given a car with roll down/up windows and non automatic locks. It was the most annoying rental car I’ve ever dealt with. We used the car five or six times a day and having to unlock each door and having to remind everyone to lock their doors when getting out was a pain. I’m never renting from Payless again, anywhere. Pay a little more and get a car that’s not from the 1980s.

    Pros: Ease of pick up and drop off.
    Cons: Old car with lots of miles, engine service light was on. Misleading cost to rent. I put the dates in for 9 day rental and the quote was for 7 days, not the full price.

    Aggressive upseller
    Pros: The car was clean. The return process was smooth. Great value for a rental.
    Cons: When picking up the car the representative was more than aggressive he was practically to the point of being rude. I understand the concept of up selling but this guy was relentless, he did not want to accept no for an answer. I rented a Hyundai accent or similar but got a Chevy spark which I don't see as similar. He wanted me to upgrade for $25 more per day so an additional $175 for the week. I said no. He continued several times to get me to change my mind even saying "man come on you don't want to be seen driving around town in a car like this - nothing electronic you have to roll down the windows." I said I was fine with the car. Then came the insurance discussion. I had already confirmed with my insurer that I was covered so was denying the coverage. He argued stating my insurer was wrong that I needed additional coverage. I explained I was ok with my own coverage. At that point he was done with me. He stopped talking pretty much. Just told me where to pick up the car. No thank you..have a great trip, etc. Just rude! And finally when I checked my quote against actual there was a $30 increase... Didn't catch it til later. Lesson learned.
