Great pictures , thank you @Lauderdalerick for the impressions. The rental car from Hertz seems to be in poor condition. My last rental from Hertz was also disappointing. In the meantime I prefer to pay a little more in order to get a newer car. Therefore I go to Sixt and I was very happy with my last two rentals.

Totally agree @Freightliner i’m also a consultant for a marketing research firm that does surveys for Manheim many rental companies such as Enterprise holdings has completely cut out of buying used vehicles from auction or are only buying really new slightly used same with Sixt i find hertz is buying the most used vehicles the chip shortage has basically gone but i find hertz corporation is just buying the most used vehicles in a quantity form they want to have the most selection but are just buying anything this jeep compass is no different i ran the vin and discovered it was traded in to a dealership the dealer determined it wouldn’t fit their lot so they sent to manheim wholesale auto auction I suspect my last rental compass being an auction vehicle it sat in the elements and either the battery is completely shot or the alternator is not charging the battery. I noticed a dealer sticker on this vehicle and hertz only took delivery on March 28 2023

Obviously Hertz doesn't have sufficient money for a normal operation. I expect new cars from a rental company.
All others I try to avoid.

Correct!

Recently I had a rental from Hertz in Europe. The rentalcar over there was not brand new but acceptable. I have got a Volvo XC40 in Paris CDG.

My last rental from Budget was a Toyota Camry. Service at the counter was ok however the car had 41k miles on the clock. I prefer newer cars when I rent one. :x

I was out of town for two and a half 3 days and hertz was the only rental open late the service wasn’t anything special the vehicle i had was a 2020 Jeep compass latitude with 48,748 miles I returned it with 49k miles the vehicle was being a typical jeep compass it was ornery the transmission was really jerky especially when shifting and the brakes were a literal safety hazard the vehicle would always come to a complete stop even when i tapped the brakes

Thx for the report and pics @Lauderdalerick.
A jerky transmission and the brake issue is not specific to Jeep in general. For me it`s a maintenance issue only. What do you think?

I’ve driven several jeep compass models the jeep compass is a shitbox in my opinion every one I’ve driven regardless of maintenance level always has had a rough shifting jerky transmission infact it’s a common problem with the 9 speed transmission on the jeep compass url: https://georgia-lemon-law.info/common-p ... p-compass/ url: http://www.jeepproblems.com/9-speed-transmission/.
The brakes I think are an electrical related problem I can’t say if it’s maintenance. There had been several tsbs (technical service bulletin) for the zf 9 speed automatic transmission used in the compass renegade and Cherokee related to rough shifting and hard shifting its a horribly geared transmission.
