I tried to collect the Civic - or similar - and was offered a Toyota Corolla. They are two different categories of vehicles, and this happens EVERY TIME. Not sure if it's a Thrifty's or a Carrental.com issue, but the car described online is never the car you collect at Thrifty's. This is not a problem for any other car rental agency.

My experience is so bad. Thrifty company was making everything thing difficult from pick up until the return, I don’t know why, but I guess it’s their way and policy. I would love to stay without car than rent from them. It’s my last time for sure.
