Ratings and Reviews
Horrible customer service
Recently they debuted a new pricing structure under the guise of giving their customers more options. You now select what measure of time you want to be charged for before your ride. It’s actually just a very non-consumer friendly way to squeeze more money out of their customers per ride. Without ANY improvements. Specifically, having more/better customer service agents. You will wait at least 30 minutes on hold to talk to a human, even if you’re experiencing a problem with your current rental. Maybe your car won’t unlock (while you’re being charged and cannot rent another), your rental won’t end, whatever - you’ll wait 30 minutes. I once had to take an Uber because I waited FORTY minutes for a customer service agent while my car wouldn’t unlock and my card was being charged. You will wait 3-4 business days for a response to an email. And then when they inevitably respond with something totally unhelpful and you respond, you’ll wait another 3-4 business days to hear back. Just invest in more expedient customer service, keep the old pricing structure but raise the per minute/hour/day rates, and I’ll be a happy customer again.
TLDR; not transparent with pricing, poor customer service, but useful when it works. Look elsewhere if there’s another service available in your area.
Faulty car. No remorse.
I had a bad experience while using a vehicle to take a trip to CT from Brooklyn. It was during the winter and the car did not have windshield wiper fluid. This is a minor fix but still inconvenient and dangerous. The real issue came from when the side view mirror kept turning inwards making it difficult and dangerous to see during highway driving. I reported all of this when I returned from my trip. Customer service said they would be in touch with a resolution. One month later and no response I started an email correspondence regarding this. After some back and forth and the different agents they offered me 10 minutes of free drive time to make up for the bad experience. Hardly enough for the horrible condition the car was inand the dangerous driving that caused, in my opinion. Not to mention they overcharged me... They told me I should have gotten out of the car and ended the trip as soon as something seemed wrong. Great! Then I would be stranded in CT, thanks for that idea! Overall I would not recommend this service unless you don't mind a bad experience when and if something goes wrong or cars that may potentially be faulty and dangerous.
Suggestion to the developers
The app is good, but I think it would be excellent if we could report maintenance issues through the app. For example, I have rented several cars with low tire pressure. One day I had a car with dangerously low pressure in one tire. The only way to report the issue was to call customer service. I was instructed to park and switch cars. I was on my way to work and switching cars made me late. I have also seen notifications on the dash stating that the car was overdue for routine maintenance. I would bet that nobody calls to report this stuff because they don’t want to go through the hassle of calling. Maybe they’re on their way to work, or a meeting, or the airport. If you could add something like the report damages option that allows someone to report these issues by spending a few extra seconds I bet more people would do it, and by extension we would have a well maintained fleet of cars.
Otherwise, I have no issues with the app.
