If you abuse a rental car for no apparent reason, then that says less about you than the car. By the way, the majority of people who rent Hertz cars treat them like they are intelligent individuals and not kids with a toy to destroy. Hertz gives you 3 days to drive the car, have it checked out by a mechanic and decide if you want to purchase. I paid $16,500 for a $24,400 KBB priced Nissan Maxima and feel as if I got a great deal. The finance person couldn't believe the price and told me she wouldn't insult me by offering GAP insurance.

Quote from carmichael View Post :
I guess I'm ignorant on the subject - why would a national car rental agency be selling such newish cars? The results on the website show mostly 2011 cars. Do they normally update their fleet to the newest and greatest that quickly? Otherwise it makes me think they're just selling off problem cars.
Most rental agencies turn over cars very aggressively. Hertz is actually a little slow on some of these models because Enterprise is already dumping 2012 models for a lot of cars, which matters on a few models where there are big differences between the 2011 and 2012-the Impala for example got a major engine upgrade for the 2012 model.

Of course the prices are also a lot higher for these newer models so for now I'm gonna hold off...if this deal's still in place next year it'd be a pretty good deal to get a $14K 2012 Impala with the beefy V6 under the hood =p Enterprise has a 2012 LTZ even but it's not cheap (they want 22K) whereas the Hertz 2011 models are like 14K with the promo going. Mind you, the Impala is actually a terrible car if you don't just want a massive V6 for cheap-the cabin is horrible but the only real way to buy them is used since the depreciation here is something like 50% vs the new price (the theoretical MSRP is $28K for an Impala LT...though nobody ever actually pays that, at least I really hope not)

I do see a bunch of Mustangs and the like available but they all have a ton of miles on them and I suspect that most of the renters were driving these like a-holes so I'd personally stay the hell away from them.

I lol at thought of people who buy the Camaros I rented
I was recently in Southern Florida and the younger crowd had rental Mustangs and Cameros cruising the coast down to Key West. Top speed couldn't be more than 100 MPH short burst passing, with average speed being 60 MPH for over 140 miles, 300 round trip.

Hit mile marker 0 and top speed is 20 MPH tops laugh out loud

Cars are cheap down there tooSmilie

They don't even have many good cars. The only ones worth owning are a few select japanese economy cars and I know they're all base models, so whoopdeedoo.

7th gen maxi? Those are nice cars (aside from the CVT Wink). 6th gens are ugly and rather lackluster. I have a '03 TE 6 speed with full boltons - currently in the middle of a 7th gen motor swap bounce

Damn, I forgot to edit? How do you delete Frown

We bought a $10,000 Yaris for my woman's younger brother as a first car. Still going great. It had some scratches by the trunk but other than that, it was in great shape. No smell or anything. It had 24k miles. Newest and lowest mile car we could find for $10k by a long shot. $500 Toyota extended warranty bumper to bumper to 100k miles and you cant go wrong.

Depends on the car. I agree with some others, I wouldn't touch one of those Mustangs. Probably not the Mercedes C-Class either because people often rent them to "live the dream".

Now a Ford Focus? Fusion? Crown Vic? Corolla? Usually just someone who is renting a car because they have to rent a car.

Most rental cars I've seen don't have the smoke smell. IIRC the rental companies charge you a pretty hefty smoking cleanup fee if you smoke in the car.

In fact Hertz is the only rental agency that'll even let you smoke in a car and you have to rent a special smoker car. It's a $250 fee if you light up.

Of course I'm sure some idiot will probably have lit up at some point but none of the cars are going to smell like a smoker owned it since at worst maybe a few days some idiot smoked in it and got fined the $250 cleaning fee. They don't even have ashtrays so I'm not even sure where you'd put your ashes if you lit up.

enjoy trying to resell when the buyer pulls a carfax and it flags it for rental.

so are they comparing the price from a brand new car of the same make/model? even though their totoal mileage is like 30-40k? I didn't get it. Or are they basing the original price according to like KBB with all the miles driven and year considered?

Their KBB is the retail price for a car in this condition.

I think I found probably the worst deal on the entire website though LMAO
http://www.hertzcarsales.com/Vehi...t_13829888
This car costs less at most dealers new...and their normal asking price is $1000 higher than the (rather silly) KBB price. Dunno wtf is going on there, the same car brand new has a $17100 MSRP and you can get it for under $16K new...Hertz is smoking some serious crack with that price.

I considered buying a car from there. I did some research online to find other people's experiences with hertz. I did not find too many issues. Some people complained about car issues but that can easily happen to any car from anywhere else. Considering that hertz has been selling their ex-rental for years, and they are still in business. I'll say that is a plus. For people who say renters will abuse their cars, I'll say hertz probably maintain their cars fairly well in order to stay in business. They are probably routinely checked more often. Too bad they didn't have the car and color I wanted. I would have purchased from them.
