    Please post your review of rental cars, not so much the company service although that should be part of it.

    I'll go first. I just rented a 2013 Jeep Patriot at a local Enterprise lot. I needed the car as my truck was going in for service. The Enterprise office at the dealership was closed on Saturday so I had to pick it up at the nearby office. They offered to let me drop the car at the dealer for no additional cost. I think I paid way too much for a week rental at about $200 but that's another story.

    The car was a black on black stripped Patriot with about 11k miles on it. It drives nice and it not a bad highway car. It's very under powered (maybe that's the "Jeep Thing" I don't understand). I don't like the fact that it didn't have daytime running lights or automatic lights. The rear hatchback was handy as I was using it as a work vehicle and I haul a lot of training supplies, etc. The car was fun to drive and easy to park but I don't think I'll buy one, well, ever. Everything seems really cheap on it. Maybe one with more equipment would be better.

    Pros:
    Great handling, easy to park, big enough inside for all my stuff.

    Cons:
    Cheap build quality, a little hard to see blind spots and way under powered on hills, passing or getting on the highway.

    Next time I'll add a photo.
