Hertz have started to sell cars at discounted prices. All less than 3 years old FSH and better prices than you can expect from a main dealer!

The only catch is that it's an Ex hire car.... That being said I've had mine for over a year now and touch wood never had a problem with it!

If you're looking at changing your car consider this!

Given that every time I've been given a new car as a hire car (which is pretty much every time) I've made it by business to wreck it as much as possible (red lining every gear change etc etc etc), I wouldn't touch these with a barge pole.Mind you, it's fun to learn how to do clutchless gear changes for a week!
What a prat!

If only hukd policy allowed us to use a certain type of language to describe this guy!

How is this hot? Have those who have rated hot ever rented a hire car?

They get abused basically because people who rent them know it's not theirs and because they sell you 800 kinds of insurance you're covered whatever you do in it.

Called getting your monies worth....

So how do you get your monies worth out of council tax - throw litter from your hire car.

There is a certain standard of person that shows respect for all walks of life
other peoples property ( even hired to them)
other people (us... other road users)
and our environment.

But... make sure you get your monies worth - Don't want you to feel cheated.

what a prat...

Not great prices.

Personally i would not touch them. Knowing all different types of drivers have driven these, knowing it was without a doubt abused. It would have to be considerably cheaper than the current market to make it worth the punt.

Avoid.

Buying this is a bit like marrying a prostitute, considering the amount of people who had it and abused it.

Yes, but I bet it still gives a good ride! oO

probably better off with top gears reasonably priced car there will be more life left in that

I doubt many people really do the "drive it like you stole it" thing. Car rental outfits are desperate to find (or even invent) something they can bill you extra for. Remember there will still be an excess no matter how much CDW you get suckered into.

After 20 odd years in the motor trade,I can say many large dealerships/garages have been buying ex-daily rental cars for years,cleaning them up,removing all evidence of rental company,quick service/valet ............and guess what,Joe Public are usually none the wiser.Why do you think Hertz are doing it................they saw the profit dealers where making!!!!!!!!
#91
Apparently there are no cars for sale.
#92
some of them even have 5 gears

My company used to buy ex-hire cars from auction. Had a 1 yr ok ex-hertz Astra, within 2 years it had the following; 2 gearbox rebuilds, new clutch, new steering rack, new brake master cylinder, new gear selector plate and other bits and bobs.

Avoid, cold

That was because its a vauxhall, not the rental company's fault.

Completely agree, after leaving hertz I worked in used car sales and most of our stock was ex rental from Enterprise.
#96
Seems decent, taking a look. If you buy a car from one of those supermarket car places, where do you think they get them from?
#97
I'd feel safer buying a car that had been stolen and burnt out to be honest, at least then you know its been thrashed and trashed.

Are you retarded?



Serious question.

I bought one and it's the best car I have ever bought. You have a 10 day test drive.... It's a no brainer

Actually mate, it's 6 gears.
Pull away in reverse. J turn. Snatch the gears up through the box - clutch optional.

Apparently rentals also make spanking good track cars ;)

Find some of these comments funny, where to some people think the majority of under 12 month old cars on dealer forecourts are coming from - people chopping them in cos its dirty............

Website is so slow & when it does load, it throws up errors.

Finally just got onto the site and voted cold. Prices I've looked at are extortionate given the amount of miles they have on the clock!!

They look the same if not more expensive than cars on autotrader, can't see any value here especially when you take into acoount they were hire cars.

Would that be 'the number of people', or are you measuring by the kilo?

Gearbox rebuilt twice?

The first time could be blamed on hertz... the second time? Your **** gearbox skills!
Which leads me to believe you caused the gearbox to go first time around!

Don't buy an ex daily rental car. Ex lease is ok (long term rental). Took one of these for a test drive so much wrong with it, but Hertz were really good about it.
Not voted either way

I love hire cars. They can answer all those questions you're dying to have answered: (i) How quickly can a car in 6th gear go from 0 to 20mph? (ii) can you overpower the brakes with full throttle? (ii) can you use shampoo in the screen wash bottle? (iv) when it comes to speed bumps, how fast is too fast?

The answers -

(i) about 1 minute.
(ii) no (unless you're going really fast).
(iii) DEFINITELY not

However, the rest of them have 4 and a half due to bad driving?

Hmmmm, I get the feeling there are some on here who are fantasists.

The nearest they have come to driving any car is on their xbox.
