When we showed up at 10 that morning, I was immediately asked if we'd be interested in a free upgrade. I said we would but we couldn't use what they offered. The man told me give me time and I'll have you in something suitable. we came back at 3 and he had a Chrysler 3000 for us. We didn't have to return it until around 3 seven days later. The car drove well and it was closer to home. They also have unlimited miles.
