ALSO BLFC HYPE: we're picking up our road trip car from the rental place today and like... i got us a sensible, spacious Toyota Corolla but in the back of my mind i'm imagining me getting there and the rental clerks being like "ohhh... sorry.... we're all out of sensible cars.... but we do have this juiced-up Camaro if you're okay with taking that off our hands......"
this almost certainly will not happen. but it's nice to think about
@srol i guess that is, on the basest technical level, an "upgrade"
the last time i rented a car was in Denver last month where i got a "dealer's choice" car that ended up being a MASSIVE V6 Kia Sorrento, which definitely wasn't a car i'd pick but which was VERY exciting
@wolfteeth that sounds unpleasant but also deeply satisfying
@wolfteeth fingers crossed..........
@bea network I assume its for like base level cars and not like High End Supercar Stuff, which actually sounds p interesting
@bea I’m actually gonna check this out when I get home, this sounds rad
UPDATE! we got a sensible, spacious Nissan Versa, so not our dream situation, but ITS STILL CUTE
@IrisKalmia I deeply feel this, but also I understand why Hertz wouldn’t rent those out since so few people know how to handle them. ITS WEIRD THO, all the Car2Go cars around here have optional manual steering via steering column paddles, which like why EVEN
