Just back in France from a wonderful CA roadtrip, SF, coastline, LA, Getty, Sequoia, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe and Napa Valley.
Rented, out of France a midsize SUV, a Chevrolet Equinox Four Wheel Drive (apparently 4X4 not necessary) but got a Ford Escape XLT Front Wheel Drive (very positive experience) instead.
As a former retired fleet mgr. for US leasing companies in Europe I was of course interested to see how the rental was handled. Beside a too high delivery gas bill, full tank invoiced while still 3/8 full, the final invoice was correct.
However, the car we ordered was a Four Wheel Drive costing MSRP 29,000 and we got a Front Wheel Drive costing MSRP 23,000. Apparently in accordance to Alamo same category vehicles, size I agree, but technical and price I see a major difference.
Prior to ask for a credit, I'd like some feedback, maybe I am wrong and not anymore 'up to date' with the common handling practices.
Thanks a lot,
