Enterprise delivered a Jaguar to me last Friday at the Delano Hotel in Miami to drive through Alligator Alley to Naples, about a 2.5-hour trip. That road has some serious crime statistics in terms of motorists who are stranded, especially at night.
So I was shocked when the dashboard informed me I had 24 miles left in the tank with 50 miles to my destination. I found two state troopers with 15 miles left and they told me in 10 miles there was an exit with gas stations (exits are few and far between and there is none on the road). I made it to the pump with four miles left in the tank.
How abominably stupid, unconcerned, cheap, and amateurish is Enterprise, not only to send a car with less than half a tank but also to not inform me, not with the agent who had me sign the forms, nor with any paperwork indicating that obnoxious practice or the state of the fuel? Should I have checked it? Maybe so, but when was the last time you rented a car from a major company and felt you had to make sure the tank was filled?
Never again. Never. These people are too stupid to merit our business, and who knows what else in their cars is only half adequate?
