    I'll start it off.

    Needed a Car but forgot to use my points for a Full Size car.

    I got a Nissan Altima with 56,000 Miles... As I almost always reserve Prestige Collection, I was shocked at how high the mileage was. it was the Hertz Upper East Side 90th Street Location and granted, it was saturday at 8pm.

    I've had a couple in the mid 40,000s range. Seems like in general the number of low mileage cars has gone way down the past couple years.

    I had one car with 50K. I also received alot of cars with under 2K miles. Depends on location. I don't mind higher miles on the car if I book a cheap econ/compact & get a larger, fancier car with higher miles.

    I've been noticing the miles seem to be creeping up. A couple weeks ago, I had an Altima with just over 45k. I remember renting a car a few years back, driving it about 750 miles in four days, and then being chastised by the clerk on return because it rolled over 15k and would need to be de-serviced soon.

    Just turned in a 2009 Prius -- yes, two thousand NINE -- with just shy of 49k miles. I got 41 mpg though.

    I had a 2008 (yes, really) Infiniti G35 sedan in July 2010 at IAD with 56,000 miles. Car was BEAT. As soon as I stepped out at the return, the Hertz rep took that white crayon and wrote AUCTION on the window [​IMG]

    That pains me to hear that great Infiniti was beat up so badly.

    I was given one with 42K miles about a month ago-I think it was in San Antonio. I refused it, and got an Altima with 180 miles on it. My profile says low mileage only, but it appears they never read that.
