I went with a used 2006 Four Winds with a chevy engine from El Monte Rentals. My theory was that for insurance purposes they have to keep things maintained and safe for rental customers so when they decide to sell them at least most things have been fixed. Sure we had to buy new tires and some minor details had to be fixed most of which I was able todo. Took it to a mechanic who said it drove great and all looked good. We drove it 8000 miles our first summer across the country with no problems…engine hardly used any oil and had a great time. We have bought used cars from car rental agencies too and they always seem to be in good shape. With people suing for almost anything, these rental companies have to be on top of maintenance or they will be out of business.
