Enterprise Rent-A-Car terrible experience!

I rented a car from enterprise at 2301 W. Sample Rd. Pompano Bch, Fla.33073. On Sept. 28,2007. I returned the car back on
Oct. 1,2007. The amount for the car were $135.01. Enterprise failed to credit my account with the remaining balance of my $250.00 which they with held for the deposit. I contacted enterprise on Oct.5,2007 to see what the problems were concerning my credit. I spoke to Andy the assistant manager he inform me he were going to take of it it were never done. I spoke to John Savino the branch manager, he inform me he were going to take care of it and give me a call back. Nothing were done. I never received a call from John. Until I reported him to there corporate office. I called and complained to there customer care center [protected] nothing done. I called Jaime Pages at the corporate office to inform her of the problem she also said she were going to need a copy of my bank statement I faxed it over to her On Oct. 29,2007, never received a call back from her. I initiated all the calls concerning my money. Jaime Said she were going to speak to John. Nothing still not taken care of. John left me a message on my home phone on Dec.4, or 5th for me to call him. I called him back he pretended he had no clue as to why he needed to contact me. I began to tell him that Jaime Pages the secretary of the ceo told me that she see that the transaction were done indeed wrong. He stated he were going to contact her at get back to me, no phone call as of today from John. He totally ignored me and my situation. I left numerous messages for him to return my call he never did. I spoke to Stephanie one of the Managers and left my contact number. He never called. I called him On Dec. 5,2007 to see what the status he inform me to contact there accounted and that Jaime had no glue as to what I were speaking about. On Dec. 7, 2007, I contacted the customer care center again for the 4th time, I wanted to speak to someone on a higher level to get this resolved. I spoke to Don one of the customer care mangers he then got enterprise on the phone, we spoke to Stephanie again she informed me she gave John the message, they were going to take care of the problem on that day. Nothing has been resolved as of yet. The account after I left her a message on Friday morning De.7,2007 she called my home and left me a message while I am at work. I left my work number on numerous accounts no one would ever call they would call the home when I'm not there. I would like for someone to take care of this problem I have been battling with them Since Oct. 5,2007. All I've been getting were the run around. No one seems to care or want to conclude this matter. I would like to be credited back to my account from the remaining of my $250.00 dollars. This is why I am sending this complaint against enterprise, because they have handled my situation in a very disrespectful manner and a lack of concern, concerning a customer. I have never gone through this with enterprise before. I have been renting cars from them for a very long time. This is the first time I ever ran into this problem. This enterprise does not have a concern for there customers. I think the company needs to review who they has working for them. These people are giving enterprise a ban name as well as a ban repretation. I will never rent a car from that enterprise again.

Polly Fuentes.

We found 2 memory sticks from a digital camera in a car we rented from Enterprise in Anaheim, CA on Jan 3/08. I viewed them and there are photos on them. The employee at enterprise said that there was no way to track down the previous renters of the car. They suggested that we keep the cards delete and use them ourselves. Well, I don't want to delete them or throw them away. If i could find the owner i would gladly return them.

I experienced this same type of situation. I went into Mill Valley CA to renew a contract for the airport. Instead of Mill Valley renewing my contract they Mill Valley office, Wendy Kastner rewrote a new contract so her office could benefit from my rental. She then charged an extra $1, 000 fee to my credit card. To date it has been worse than a circus. They are still holding my $1, 000 and I never agreed to have my contract switched. This office is vile. I never had the experience with the airport. They never thought up bogus charges to apply to my credit card. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ENTERPRISE CAR RENTAL HERE IS THE ADDRESS 35 REED BLVD MILL VALLEY. If you see Wendy Kastner RUN

I recently rented a car from Enterprise in Augusta, Maine. I picked the car up 10/06/2008. I kept the car for a few days and returned it. I was in such a hurry I forgot my tool bag in the back. $200 worth. I called the rental place [protected] the next morning. The tools were not found and the car was in Manchester, N.H. I called Manchester and asked what the procedure was when a car was returned. The man told me that the car was completely gone over with every return - front, back and trunk. So tell me, how did the employees of this very small Augusta location fail to see my tool bag. I am mad at myself for being in such a hurry that I left my tool bag behind, but even more upset that Enterprise would employ such dishonest people. There is no way in hell that those tools were overlooked, especially if someone was doing their job. Maybe they need a better manager at this store! The man who rented me the vehicle was Alec. So beware. If you are renting a car in Augusta, go to Budget. It is conveniently located at the Augusta airport. Prices are the same.

I know for a fact that on 9-11-01, the manager of the Birmingham location DOUBLED and sometimes TRIPLED "one way" rates. There were many planes deverted to Birmingham, because of the events, the airport became packed with paniced travlers just trying to get back home. Budget took advantage of the supply and demand theroy and hit those poor scared people with unbelivably high rates. If you rented from them on this occasion- please be aware that the rate they charged you was much higher than the day before, they are CROOKS.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car unauthorized charges

Enterprise is taking advantage of the consumers. Here's our deal. Our Insurance Agency arranged with Enterprise a rental car within the price amount to be paid by the Insurance, while our vehicle was getting repaired. Enterprise requested a card for file, which I can understand. They immediately withdrew $50 twice and credited us back that same day. Okay now they have $50 from us as a "down pmt" to be returned upon return of the vehicle. The rental was picked up at the Auto Collision place where the Enterprise representative met us and others with pre-prepared paperwork. When we returned the vehicle, the auto body shop indicated we leave the vehicle there. I asked that someone inspect the vehicle. The gentleman there did the inspection. I then immediately called Enterprise and told them we dropped the car off at the body shop where they told us to leave it and the guy there did the inspection and everything looked good. I asked about getting our $50 back; he said he would be on his way to pick up the car and once he got back to their place of business he would credit us back. Well low and behold, instead of crediting us back $50 - they charged an additional $285.97 without notice! When I found this out, I immediately called... took several phone calls, nonetheless they indicated we obtained additional insurance. We never requested addtional insurance! and further more, the Insurance made the arrangements. I am fighting with them now to get our $335.97 back. Plus they didn't even notify us of the additional charge. Do they think because they have a card on file, they can charge whatever the hell they want! I think their outta be a class action lawsuit! (I will check into this, my daughter works for a good lawyer).

BTW: This would be a second bad experience we have had with Enterprise!

When you sign the rental contract, you have to initial that you either ACCEPT or DECLINE the optional coverage. Check your contract. If you initialled that you accepted the coverages, you're on the hook for it.

I agree with everything everyone i saying because i have just been scammed by enterprise today. I am very disappointed in their service. the car they gave me broke down and had to be replaced only after i lost my temper and insisted vehemently that i needed a car to move around.
Now they are trying to charge me for insurance even though this car was rented for me by the insurance company of the insured who is the other party in the accident. the accident was not my fault and i have a police report. they know this and know that the insurance of the other party had accepted liability but still went ahead to accrue insurance payments even though this was an accident case and are now insisting very very rudely that i should pay this.
i agree that there should be some class action suit so we can all be heard.

My husband was forced to stop in at a branch office last night after being told over the phone our contract was null and void because we have had our rental for over 30 days (mind you be have been paying on time for the rental the entire 30 days). We were never told we would have to rewrite the contract at the end of 30 days. Last night Enterprise charged my husband's debit card $711.11 instead of the weekly $200.00, after they TOOK $150.00 without permission on Saturday, November 29, 2008. Our bank has given us a courtesy credit of the $150.00 but where does this extortion end? We need a car until ours is repaired. Something needs to be done about Enterprise. We did contact the district manager.

Ms. Steward, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

One thing that you have to realize when you are renting a vehicle is that you signed a legal document and like any other company Enterprise is in the business to make money not lose money. When you have a claim through your insurance company your policy might allow 25.00 a day what ever vehicle you chose the total charges need to be under the 25.00 anything after that comes directly out of your pocket. Make sure to always ask the agent how much per day will this vehicle cost. Also make sure that you dont exceed the days that your policy allow which is usually 30 days only unless you are the claimant. I am sorry that this happened to you but if you are still having issues please call and speak to someone in the Rental Management Division (Call Back Center).

Enterprise Rent-A-Car assumption of damage by consumer!

On 9/5/07, my insurance company provided me with a rental car due to my car being in an accident the day before. The rental car was given to me with less than 1/4 tank of gas. After work (a 15 mile drive), I got 10.72 gallons ($30.00) worth of gas at a gas station near where I work, so I would make it home. The car died on the way home, now they are saying it had 15 gallons of "contaminated" gas and are suing me for almost $700.00 worth of damage, when I only drove the car a total of maybe 18 miles. My position is that the 4.28 gallons of gas that was in the vehicle when I got it could have been contaminated and no one complained of bad gas at the station that I got the gas from. Enterprise is saying that "the renter is responsible for damage to the rental vehicle regardless of fault of negligence." Absolutely Ludicrous!

Mary... first of all... wow. I know some people like to complain, but I've never seen it taken to such detail...

But I digress...

While I agree that Enterprise's claim was a touch over the top, I mean, come on. It's not like Enterprise associates go into the car before you get in it and start messing things up. Obviously the first thing that Enterprise (or any rental car company, for that matter) is going to think is that you did something to mess it up. After all, you WERE the last person in the car.

Enterprise has a pretty extensive legal department, though. I'd call corporate and talk it out with them. but then, it's already been three years and I hope you've taken care of this by now.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car enterprise made me miss my flight

Enterprise Rent A Car - www.enterprise.com

After waiting with about 10 others for Enterprise to open so that we could check in our cars in order to make it to the airport, the young woman checking in my car thought that it would be nice to tell me about how she was being "punished" by being scheduled to work the early Sunday morning shift. While obviously unprofessional, her chattiness with all of the patrons held up many of us who needed to get to the airport. As a result, I missed my flight.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car charges

I rented a car 09/04/07 and returned the same day. The only outside damage was a mark on the front. I always look in the trunk and around it. When I returned the car ; the rep comes out of his mouth : I got to take your deductible. I said you are crazy. He found a less than 2 inch crack under the town car's bumper. Mind you I had just raised my ded to 500.00 and have used them for ever with no problems. They stole my money within 1 day. I got a bill for the balance of 677.90 and a picture of a bumper that was half eaten off. I have emailed; called cust. service and they pass it on. The corporate cust service [protected]) was to have a vp call me. I got the reg. manager who sucked liked the others. I just want my money back or this gone. I told Bret at [protected] if they would keep the 500.00 and erase the balance I would never bother enterprise anymore and hope they won't bother me. His response I can't do that. My response you know who could and he said yes he does, but he doubts they will negoitate with me. What kind of business is this. I also asked did anyone talk to the rep Nick. He said no. Nick had his own agenda that morn with another (female) coworker and this is in the emails and letters I have sent and no one is? him. But you are trying to get more money from me. I am now trying to get in touch with a lawyer. Why pay for something you didn't do. How did the crack under less than 2 inches becaome an outside foot long? Thanks for being there I just needed to vent again.

I rented a car for two days (April 16-18) from Enterprise and because I'm 19 years old I was charged an underage drivers fee. The total came out to $467.00. We agreed that I would pay the $67.00 in cash, and the rest would be charged to my credit card. Before I was going to take the car out, I decided to pay for the gas in the car already so that I wouldn't have to worry about refueling it later. So, they charged $15 to my debit card. Imagine my surprise, when this morning, April 22, I wake up to find my DEBIT CARD charged for $400!

These guys are scam artists! Now I'm overdrawn and HOPING they will do the right thing and refund my money!

I rented a car from Enterprise in Sacramento, CA on Arden Way b/c my car is in the shop, getting work done on it. Their driver picked me up from the body shop in a red Chevy HHR. Enterprise gave me a Chevy Cobalt, which doesn't even compare ONE BIT to my personal car. I made it clear to the lady, Rachel, that I was not going to be driving that piece of crap car around. She then turns around, and asks me to take the car for now, and bring it back at the end of the day for a larger and different vehicle. She then stated that she'd give me the red HHR that I had been picked up in, but because the car needs "maintenance" before letting it leave their shop. Less than an hour later, I get a call from Enterprise. They said the red HHR was ready for me to pick up. Thinking to myself "wow, I've worked in the car business industry before, and that was some quck maintenance!" Anyhow, the HHR was better than the Cobalt. I get there to pick up the HHR, it's a totally different rep, he takes me outside, does a quick walk around on this HHR, and I was able to point out all the dings, scuffs, and marks on the BODY of the car. I'm 4'11, therefore, I am unable to see the top of this mini SUV. The guy who does this walk around with me doesn't even bother to mention it to me either. I take this car, the next morning, I get up and go to work, I have a flat tire. I put air in it. The next day, same thing happens, and that continues on for the next 5 days that I have this piece of POOP car. I finally call them and asked them to bring a car to me, as I will be at work during their business hours. Their response "I've had two people call off today, I'm short handed bring the car elsewhere b/c :we dont have any car on our lot." (this was at 7:31 am Tuesday morning; they open at 7:30 am how can they possibly already not have any cars for me?) I let it go obviously, it's not worth my time to disagree with these low lives, who work off of commission at Enterprise Rent A Car. I brought the Red HHR to their branch in Roseville, CA, on Sunrise BLVD. I get in, there are two employees sitting there, the guy comes up to help me, while the dumb gal sits in her $7.00 office chair and talks on the company phone with her friends. The guy and I go outside, do our walk around, he thanks me for replenishing the gasoline, asks for the pink carbon copy, they provided me with a week ago. I handed that to the guy. He looks at it, takes me back inside into their dinky little office, prints up this cheapy car thing (that they use so they can mark up all the dings and track the gasoline) on a standard white 8.5x11 in paper. He walks me out the new vehicle they're about to provide me with. We walk up to a WHITE HHR. Same everything, just different colors! I can care less though, at least, I now know I will NEVER purchase a Chevy. We do the walk around, and he sends me away. As I drive away, I see the idiot gal and the guy that just help me, out on the parking lot, looking at the red HHR that I just dropped off. I stopped to let the two cross the lot to get back into their "office." They both crossed and smiled as I drop off. I go to turn on the AC, one of the vent is broken. "Whatever" is what I said. I also, let that go, although it was 100 degrees out that day. 3 days after dropping that red HHR off, I receive a letter in the mail from Enterprises' Damaage something. They stated that I had put a dent on the roof of the car. "WTF" is what I said. For one, the walk around that was done at the first Enterprise, all we looked at was the body, no one mentioned anything about the "roof" of this car! Secondly, when I went to drop off this car over at the other Enterprise, it was not EVER brought to my attention that there had been any kind of damage on this car! And 3rd, I'm 4'11! SERIOUSLY?!?! How could I have possibly even looked at the top of this poopy car and document that crap!?!?!? (well, they figured they can try and scam the short Asian girl I guess!) As of right now, I can't even stand to communicate with idiots from Enterprise anymore! Once my car comes out from the bodyshop, Enterprise will have to pick their crap ar up from that bodyshop! I called my bank today and had them cancel my car b/c of fraudulent charges from Enterprise! NEVER AGAIN WILL I RENT FROM THEM! EFF YOU ENTERPRISE!

I rent from Enterprise fairly often and have always been happy with the cars, the staff at the local Enterprise store and the pricing. I rented over the weekend of July 1st, returning it on the 5th. As always the car was marvelous, the staff friendly and helpful. I was surprised when I returned it though, to be told that my entire deposit of $300.00 had been used and I owed $24.34 more. That was unexpected, as by my calculations no more than $230 to $260 dollars should have been used. Certainly $300.00 as compared to the $167.77 that was on my confirmation of order is a big difference. Please understand that I am not disappointed with the rental and if the charges were correct I have no problem with them, but it seems odd to me.

My wife and I went to the Enterprise branch office in Athens, Ohio where the staff there were not helpful, rude and service was not good. We won't go there for the service again.

My wife and I went to the Enterprise branch office in Athens, Ohio where the staff there were not helpful, rude and service was not good. We won't go there for the service again.
1) On Sept. 13 2010, when my wife whispered with me privately in dialect, the staff was rude and said that she didn't speak the dialect but only English.
2) The staff, when returning our car, told us the company policies that were not told to us when we rent the car. But the staff said that rules are rules and she had to follow up the rules. It was like that they knew the rules, didn't tell customer when renting a car, but charged the customers using the rules when returning the car.
3) we rent the car for 2 weeks. When we returned the car at 7pm of Friday, the office was closed due to weekend and the office would be open at 8am of next Monday morning. When we returned the car, we were told that we were charged with 3 additional days' rental, because of the office closure during weekend, even when a customer returned the car during weekend by slipping the car key to the office box. That's the company's policy. -- for this policy, we didn't complain about the staff though their service was bad.
4) when we asked for talking with the manager, we were given a phone number to call. When we dialed the number, we were told that the phone number is not in use anymore.

The policy was set in such a way that no matter when a customer returns a car during weekend, the customer will be charged by 3 additional days' rental fees, even though the customer didn't drive the car at all. --- this is the Enterprise policy that exploits customer.
A piece of suggestion to other customers: if you have a choice, don't rent car from Enterprise.

Enterprise are suckers, they have scammed me by filing a claim that I had damaged their rental car. This car was rented to me as a part of my accident rental by an Insurance company. When I returned the car, they had no employee on the premises to do the walk-around and I had to give the keys back to the receptionist. 15 days later received a call from Insurance company about the "damage". I am absolutely disgusted and will never rent a car with them again, will inform media about their illegal practice & scams. I see thousands of blogs abouth them online about $500 damage scamming.

ENTERPRISE RENT A CAR SCAM as of January 2010:
Enterprise Rent A Car---Florida has apparently entered into a secret deal with SUNPass and the Toll Road Authorities so that Enterprise can now POST CHARGE their customers for alleged Toll violations on "malfunctioning" Transponders that go through toll booths. Enterprise, which is now acting as the Gestapo Road Police, is quick and happy to charge its customers an "Administration Fee" of at least $10.00 per alleged infraction/violation. Enterprise says "we will remove the Post Charges if you can send us proof that your transponder was malfunctioning. Enterprise knows FULL WELL that this would be quite time consuming, and that 90% of the people will not spend the time for a simple $10 or $20 refund. It's a known fact that many of Florida's Toll machines continue to malfunction, as do their transponders. SO, good bye Enterprise, hello their competition ! This change in loyalty will also be directed to all of my employees as well.

I rented a truck from Enterprise in Texas it was checked out before and when I returned it we did have a flat tire. The Employee checked me in and everything was signed off as good. 3 to 4 days later I get a call from Enterprise stating that the tires were all damaged and we had to pay for all new tires around the truck. I said how can you call 3 to 4 days later after it was signed off as good and try to charge me for tires around the vehicle, he said that he could do it and sent me a bill for 526.54 to be paid by me. I am refusing to pay this bill because I did the walk around with them and they did sign off on the contract and neither the Employee or I did'nt see any damage to the tires at that point. I don't understand how they can all of a sudden deceide that the vehicle tires were all damaged when I did have a flat tire upon delivering the vehicle back to them and their Employee did look at the others and never stated to me that they were damaged while I was standing there. They did say not to worry about the flat tire that thats normal wear an tear. Does it take 3 to 4 days later to decide that they were all damaged. I thought that the whole reason that you do a walk around is for each the customer and the employee to agree to the condition of vehicle was acceptable upon the return.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car fraud

I rented a car from Enterprise in Killeen, Texas because I had to make an early morning appointment on Saturday morning. The rep advised me I should get the weekend special because the office was closed on the weekends anyways. I picked up the car friday evening and on Saturday morning proceeded to go to my appointment that was 50 miles away from my home. As soon as I got on the highway the tire was flat. I called the company to get the roadside assistance but they said it would be a few hours. I was told to put the spare tire on myself if I wanted to make my appt. On Monday I brought the car back and told them about the flat tire and being late to my appt. They could care less. The rep told me the tire had sidewall damage. He told me I must have parked too close to the curb that night. The thing is is that I parked the car in a carport away from any curbs or sidewalks. Then he calls the manager. The manager gets the tire and starts poking around with his key and tells me he found a hole and that someone must have slashed the tire. Now that they are claiming the tire was slashed, they tell me I am liable for that. I told them I had my own insurance but they said it did not matter because tires and stuff must be paid out of my own pocket. I tried to ask them if they could determine if the tire was damaged the night I picked it up but they wouldn't hear a word of it. They were extremely rude and accused me left and right about damaging the tire. Now they are going to try to notify my insurance. If anything, I don't feel I should be charged for the day the tire was flat and ruined the whole reason I rented the car.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car horrible customer service

I had never rented a car before and wasn't familiar with the process. I feel I was taken advantage of because of my inexperience. They didn't even walk me TO the car, much less around it to look for damage. I never signed saying I agreed to the condition of the car beforehand and now they're trying to charge me for scratches on the underside of the bumper. This never happened while I was driving, and I was the only one that drove the car. No one I have talked to will listen to my complaint. Sometimes they're even rude. They'll only say, "You have two options: 1) you can pay us now, or 2) we can send this to a collection agency". They also claimed that I WAS taken for a walk-around, which is an outright lie. No one I have dealt with has taken me seriously, but I am not letting this go. I know customer service - I've worked in the industry for years - and this is some of the worst customer service imaginable. All of their arguments are irrational and insubstantial, and they WILL NOT listen to my very legitimate and rational complaint, nor the plain fact that I never signed the portion of the contract agreeing to the condition of the car beforehand. I will never use Enterprise again.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car overcharge on a vehicle!

Vehicle was received very dirty. State Farm paid for the car on 7-19-07 to 8-10-07 and I Shannell paid for the vehicle on 8-11-07 to 8-31-07 with money orders. I asked for a receipt twice at the office in Balto., MD on Harford Rd and was told the computer is down. I returned the vehicle on 8-31-07 and now they are trying to bill me for taxes they claim state farm did not pay and also for gas which was place in the tank according what the paper stated. I was not given my refund of $100. There has been numerous time they try to lie to me and cover up. I now personally believe the computers were working and crocket stuff was going for on there I was not given a receipt. Enterprise or its employees need to be investigated, one claim to be supervisor in particular (Priscilla).

Enterprise Rent-A-Car unauthorized charges without permission!

I was sent to Enterprise rent-a-car by Future Ford of Clovis Ca. because they damage my car and they sent up the rental at no charge due to there error of damage to my car. So I went down to the car rental to get the rental on March 22, 2007 they told me that they needed my credit Card for only a preauthorize of 50.00 for gas purposes only by Enterprise rent-a-car only because the dealership will not pay for gas or tax. The only reason why I pick up the rental is because I'm disable and I needed a car for my doctor appointments and the dealership owed me this. The Ford Dealership contracts with this rental Company which was on the dated of March 22, 2007 and the Dealership ship is billed for the whole rental not customers and on contract it stated that as well and the Manager who approved this was Chris Klien of Future Ford of Clovis Ca. My credit card was on file for this contract by their request to make sure that the customer’s car came back with a full gas tank which it did and was that was verified by Assistant Manager by the name Angelo Young and his assistant Nathan of Enterprise rental Car in Fresno, Ca. Mr. young checked gas, mileage and closed my account paid in full. All I paid for was the tax which was 17.86 which was cash because I didn't want my card used at all. Then Mr. Young stated that everything cleared and they would never charge my credit card. Since check out date I have never conducted any business or authorized any charges. So on May 23, 2007 they charged my credit card without authorization or being notified of this charge which overdrawn my account over a 150.00 because this account only had very little money because I just opened it for little transactions only and I didn't use it but a few times so these charges damaged my account and so I had to closed it and all those over charges for the few charges I had done and all the overcharges fall on me behind this unauthorized charge which was not my bill to be charged for at all is killing and now I'm fighting them and hope to get a class action lawsuit against them for uncharged that in fine print stay if they want to they can charge what ever they feel fits to any of there charges made up or not and don't have to inform you any charges. Please let stop them and have some rights too and change the contract from being one sided but give us rights as consumers.

SAME thing happened to me. NEVER give enterprise a credit card for hold. If they refuse - then go elsewhere - because if they cannot get their money from the dealership for repairs or whatever they have promised, they will bill you. I was billed $196.00 because Go DODGE on arapahoe road in Centennial Colorado verbally gave promise they would pay the entire bill, "whatever it takes" because they had our Jeep in their shop over a month for repair. We believed them. almost 3 months later we get this surprise. I will fight it to the top of Chrysler Corporate, as they are the ones who also told us it would all be covered for the rental car.

I purchased a used vehicle (2005 Chevy Malibu) from Enterprise Used Car sales. The agent presented me with a 106 point inspection prior to to the sale stating that the car had not damage and was in good condition. Less than 3 weeks after my purchase, I noticed noise coming from the front drivers side and contacted Enterprise about the problem. They sent me to the local Chevy dealer who investigated the noise and I was told there is not problem with the vehicle.

The noise began to get louder, I called Enterprise again and they sent me back to the dealer who told me I needed new struts and shocks costing ($1500.00) parts and labor.

My advise to you: (1.) Do not trust an Enterprise used car sales person regarding the condition of their vehicles. Have it checked by a reliable mechanic. (2.) Buy an extended warranty from a trustworthy broker. (3.) Make sure to contact Enterprise before the end of the regular warranty if you find a warranty issued with a vehicle you purchase from them.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car forced to pay extra money

I rented a car from enterprise on 5/26/07 and was returning it on 5/28/07. I was quoted a price which was reflected on my contract. When I went to return the car on 5/28/07 in the morning, they were closed. I was surprised to see the ink written sign was taped to the door. I put the keys in the drop box and left the car.
On Tues. May 29 I was told by the manager that I will be charged for an extra day because they were closed on Mon. I was never advised that they would be closed on the day I was returning the car and an extra charge would apply. The charge was not as big a deal as the misleading agenda. I will be forced to pay the extra on my credit card but I will never deal with Enterprise again. They are losing my business for approx. $20.00.

Yes! Enterprise is all about deception. State Farm/Fraud set me up with a car from Enterprise because a State Fraud customer slammed into the car I owned. I asked the Enterprise criminal for a small car, and he told me he could let me use a car about the size of a Toyota Corolla. I told him that was what I wanted. When we got to the parking lot, he walked me to a gigantic Chevrolet that resembled a van on the inside. I told him I did not want one of those, and he said in a condescending voice, "It's the only red car in the parking lot." Huh? Looking back, I think he was saying, "Enterprise can get more money from State Fraud if you drive this one." I was in a major hurry, so I took it and left.

I paid Enterprise for 5 days of their insurance because State Fraud would not pay for insurance on the Enterprise car. I flat out told the guy I wanted 5 days of insurance because I thought my own car might be fixed by then. Well, State Fraud took two weeks to tell me that my car was totalled and said I needed to return the Enterprise car once I picked up my wreck check. Enterprise called me the same day and told me I needed to go ahead and come in immediately (before getting my check) to pay for the past 13 days of insurance. What?! I asked and paid specifically for FIVE days of the insurance. I had a huge argument with that criminal and his corrupt manager about contract law, and the corrupt manager told me that a clause about continued insurance without a paper signing was in the fine print on the back of the contract. I looked for it, and he said it would be way too hard to find it right away. He started to pull the contract out of my hand with the excuse that he was going to write something on it for me. I resisted and kept reading. I could not find the clause. He pulled the contract all the way out of my hand and used his excuse again. After about 30 minutes, I decided to give them a spec of the benefit of the doubt, and we negotiated that I would pay for 6 of the 13 days. The next day, I read the entire body of fine print on the back of the contract. The clause was not there! This criminal flat out lied to me in front of a room full of his customers. I naively assumed he would not dare do that, but he did. What a low life ###!

I looked on the internet to see if anybody else has had such an experience, and I found a whole universe of information on the corruption of Enterprise. There are even websites dedicated to hatred for Enterprise's corruption. I can't believe they are still in business! Why are they?

Tell everybody you know what a scummy business Enterprise is, and tell everybody to spread the word as far as it can go. Dateline and 20/20 would love to know that the number 1 car rental business in the United States is blatantly deceptive toward its customers and that they are thieves who are no better than serial pick pockets. As far as I am concerned, Enterprise might as well be stealing stereos and televisions from people. Yes, they are on that level. The whole country needs to know this. Spread the word and tell people to keep spreading it, and flood the news organizations with what you know about that rotten company!

Enterprise Rent-A-Car damage scam!

Subject: damage to car rental

Here is my account of events:

5:15 pm:
Lorena called me on my cell to let me know that she just got on the i-56 and that there was traffic so she would be late in picking me up.

6:00 pm:
I did a cursory walk around the car with lorena telling me that everything was alright. The car was parked in the compact space of “enterprise” allocated spot at “doubletree”. Car was not in a very illuminated spot. I assumed that there was no damage to the car and drove it directly home where I garage-parked it all night.

8:00 am:
Drove 165 miles to meet with pat brice (cell [protected]) for exactly 45 minutes. On way I stopped only once at 76 union gas station (i-15 and hwy 138) to fill up the gas tank. And drove off to my meeting.

10:55 am:
Arrived at the remote site where pat was working. And parked the car with passenger side adjacent to curb. Mine was the only car parked there on the road…very remote site.

11:40 am:
Drove back 165 miles non-stop to my office at 7920 miramar rd. I parked the car in one of the extra-wide parking spots immediately facing my office (I could actually see it from my window). I stayed in the office for about 80 minutes.

4:10 pm:
Drove back to double tree and parked the car in the tight spot next to the doubletree club van on my passenger side.

5:15 pm:
Dan pointed out the damage. And drove me home.

5:40 pm:
I drove in my personal vehicle back to double tree and found no damage to club van. The rental car was parked by dan directly underneath a working light pole. I went around the car and did not notice the damage even with the knowledge this time that it was there! Extremely ease to miss under the circumstances.

6:00 pm:
I drove on to my office to the same spot where I had parked the car for 80 minutes and looked with my son (each of us equipped with a flash-light) for a loose broken 2”x3” plastic piece (off the hub-cap) that ought to have been lying there had the car been during that time. We found no trace of it anywhere within 40 feet of the location. We even had the hi-beam of our vehicle shining directly on that area.

I could not possibly have hit someone else’s car while driving or else I would have definitely felt it and we would have exchanged information. With over 25 years of driving experience I could not have possibly bashed the car negotiating a curve that would have had to have a blunt hard object protruding off it!

This could not have happened in my garage.

The only 2 plausible locations where I parked 45 minutes in palmdale and 80 minutes next to my office and since the facts above suggest that did not happen, then the only remaining conclusion in my mind is that the car was actually already damaged when I picked it up and simply did not notice it.

I rented a car from Enterprise on 5/15/12 and as always walked around and looked for any damage on the car and did not see any.
I had the car for a week and when I returned the car, she (agent) said, that it had a 6" dent on the driver side door and asked me to look at it and I could not see any 6" dent.
I could see two small nickel size dimples and that was all I could see and they could have been there when I rented the car, being it depends on the sunlight and angle you are looking at the car.
I would think that if it was a 6" dent I would be able to see, but I could not and she rushed me into the office and said she would have to put my decuctable on my credit card that I used to rent the car and that she had to put it on the card before I left their office.
They added $500.00 to my card and said, if the damage is less they would refund the difference, but I kept saying I don't see a 6" dent in the door and they kept saying it was there and I would have to pay for the damage.
I felt like this is some kind of scam that Enterprise does often.
Let's just say I will not be using ENTERPRISE the next time I rent a car.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car unethical business practices!

Enterprise rent-a-car, honolulu, hi charged $125 for new tire and $40 for gas.

My car was total during an accident so the insurance company arranged a rental car at enterprise. I went to the nearest enterprise and rented a 2005 dodge neon. The car obviously has a alignment problem since it always tilts to the right but I didn't have problem with that since I only drives about 10 miles a day. Couple days later I had a flat tire traveling to work, so I replaced the tire with the spare and returned the vehicle to them immediately, in a hurry I forgot to refill the gas. I told them that I would pay for the tire and gasoline. Couple days later they charged $40 for gasoline and $125 for a new tire onto my charge card and another $73.50 on pending for a reason they don't know. What kind of neon needs a $40 gasoline, and a $125 tire.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car beware! charged $500 without notification!

I recently rented a vehicle from Enterprise in Cincinnati Ohio. I was informed we were the second drivers of the car which was new.

The Man renting us the car took a quick walk around the car and there was no visible damage.
I drove the car back to where we were staying and we settled in. The following morning while driving the car, I noticed a crack developing at the bottom of the windshield. There were extreme temperatures at the time and the crack seemed to grow before my eyes. At no time did anything hit the windshield (stone, rock) so I was a little weirded out by the whole thing and called the rental office right away. The woman working there said it sounded like something hit the windshield. I explained it had not while I was driving. I took the car by the office and she looked at the crack and located a tiny pin-head sized nick near the base of the windshield where the crack started. This mark would never have been noticed during a pre-rental inspection.

She stated the manager would be in touch before the end of the day. He did not contact us, so we called back and the office was closed. The next day was a Saturday and we still received no call. When we called them, they had closed. Our turn in date was Sunday so we dropped the keys in the drop box and left 2 additional urgent messages on the office voicemail stating we needed a call back immediately regarding the issue. We received no calls back. By the time we dropped off the car, the crack had reached across the entire windshield. On Tuesday, we received a call from the claims department "regarding the damage done to the vehicle". When I returned the representative's call, He was not there and did not return my call. On the following Wednesday, I checked my bank account and saw they had charged us $500. I was told when I called the branch that we needed to speak to the claims representative (pass the buck). The rep has yet to return our calls. Enterprise admits there is no way to determine the damage was done while we had the car and their employee also said that if there was a minor nick to the glass, it would only take the severe temperatures outside and the heater on the inside of the car to create conditions for this to happen in. Yet, they still, without giving us the courtesy of even a returned call, charged us $500. Bottom line - Beware.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car never rented from enterprise and never will!

My fiance had recently rented a car(s) from Enterprise after his car had been totalled in a car wreck. Over the course of a week he was given three cars, the first two being sold within days of being in his possession.

He was put through the inconvenience of having to return these cars asap, at their demand. However that is not the issue at hand. When Enterprise received notification that his insurance company would no longer be covering the charges for his rental they became very demanding and rude stating that they needed their car back that day. My fiance spoke with someone in their office and told them that he would make his payment at the end of the week as he needed to still keep the car for a few more days. On one particular evening I was coming home and could not even pull into my driveway because a truck was blocking it. After flashing my lights they finally moved to allow me to enter MY property only to follow me into my driveway. A gentleman by the name of Patrick had asked me several questions, then becoming rude with me when I would not give him all the personal information that needed, however I had to remind him that I was not the person renting the car and he needed to speak to him. I was very upset that someone had actually come out to my home to discuss this when it should've been taken care of during business hours anyway. To add insult to injury they ended up coming back to my home even later in the night still asking about the rental. My fiance was so upset that he just drove it back in the middle of the night, at their demand of course. I have rented cars from companies that don't have the big name as Enterprise, but I can say their service surpasses them in every way. I should not be harassed at my own home in regards to something that doesn't even concern me! If harassment is part of their policy in conducting business then I will make sure to never do business with them. He spoke with his insurance company and they are going to file a claim against Enterprise.

They are threatening to me also. I have paid them and someone has not recoreded it or something. I have all the information from the credit card company and they should have it also. I received another call tonight and they say they did not recieve it. I told them I would pay another $250 this Friday as I rent by the month and pay weekly. I tried to leave a message again but it seems this new manager has done away with this too. This is in southern CA in Laguna Niguel, CA and her name is Stephanie. The former manager Erica was so nice and accommondating. I have rented there for one year this week. That means I have spent about $13, 000 this year at Enterprise. I think a long term customer like me should be treated better by Enterprise. Obviously, that is not their policy. Stephanie threatened to report the car as stolen to the police when indeed I have paid. What the hell is that? I think I will go to another rental agency and maybe seek legal advise also. Anyone who has sued them, please let me know.
Thank you for "listening".

Enterprise Rent-A-Car money that was taken and not refunded

My son needed a car for a while. His car was being repaired from a previous claim from our nationwide insurance company in 8/2006. The company that was supposed to fix the sunroof did not do it correctly. It has to go back and have it redone in November 2006. Nationwide insurance authorized the car rental, however when we went to pick up the rental, the manager failed to contact nationwide for their authorization number and money was taken out of my sons checking account. I need to talk to a representative from enterprise to get the refund that is due my son.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car car return problem

I called Enterprise when the repair work was completed and asked if I could get a ride to the collision shop or I could wait an hour for my husband to come home and take me. I was told in no uncertain terms it is policy for you to return the car to the shop and Enterprise picks it up there. The car was undamaged. Four days later Enterprise picks up the car and leaves a voice mail at a secondary work number informing me of a dent. I contacted them the following day when I received the voice mail. I was spoken to rudely by the rep who had previously been extremely solicitous. I was told it's out of his hands.

He gave me the adjuster's name and said he didn't know her extension and hung up. He had to give the # to me for a previous situation. How could he not have it? Although I followed Enterprise's instructions, I am considered responsible for alleged damages during the days it takes for Enterprise to pick up the car. The body shop owner told us these delays were typical, despite his complaints of lost parking spaces. When I finally was contacted by someone from Enterprise, my 72 hours were up and I had no right to see the car. I cannot repair the "softball-sized" dent on my own. Enterprise will repair it and charge me.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car positive complaint

I had a problem when I rented a car from the Enterprise in Farmington. I finally called the corporate office and spoke to a young lady named Amanda. She was very nice and pleasant. I started to get a little angry but she calmed me down and explained to me the situation. It was like she was trained to do so. I felt very comfortable listening to her talk. If every person that works for Enterprise is nice like her, they have a good thing going. When we got off the phone I felt so good about myself. Someone should tell that girl that she is doing a great job.

Enterprise is taking advantage of the consumers. Here's our deal. Our Insurance Agency arranged with Enterprise a rental car within the price amount to be paid by the Insurance, while our vehicle was getting repaired. Enterprise requested a card for file, which I can understand. They immediately withdrew $50 twice and credited us back that same day. Okay now they have $50 from us as a "down pmt" to be returned upon return of the vehicle. The rental was picked up at the Auto Collision place where the Enterprise representative met us and others with pre-prepared paperwork. When we returned the vehicle, the auto body shop indicated we leave the vehicle there. I asked that someone inspect the vehicle. The gentleman there did the inspection. I then immediately called Enterprise and told them we dropped the car off at the body shop where they told us to leave it and the guy there did the inspection and everything looked good. I asked about getting our $50 back; he said he would be on his way to pick up the car and once he got back to their place of business he would credit us back. Well low and behold, instead of crediting us back $50 - they charged an additional $285.97 without notice! When I found this out, I immediately called... took several phone calls, nonetheless they indicated we obtained additional insurance. We never requested additional insurance! and further more, the Insurance made the arrangements. I am fighting with them now to get our $335.97 back. Plus they didn't even notify us of the additional charge. Do they think because they have a card on file, they can charge whatever the hell they want! I think their outta be a class action lawsuit! (I will check into this, my daughter works for a good lawyer).

I rented a car on 11/15/07, with billing to be handled by my Insurance. When I retuned my vehicle on 11/27/07, I was informed that I had out of pocket costs totaling $280.15.

Apparently, I was covered for a vehicle @ $27.99 per day and I was rented a car @ $47.99 per day. I was unaware that the insurance company did not cover the car I rented in full as I was told the vehicle rented was comparable to my personal vehicle.

When I attempted to discuss this issue with Matt, the Rancho Santa Margarita Branch Manager, he became belligerent and argumentative.

Matt had indicated that because he had circled the amounts on the right had side of the rental agreement that I understood I was renting a car that was not covered in full by the insurance company. I submit that the amounts in this column, to the consumer, are ambiguous at best. In any event, the amounts were not discussed as he claims. Furthermore, the amounts in the column do not clearly indicate what the charges are for. In fact, five out the six entries in that column, with the exception of the fuel cost line, mean nothing to the consumer.

The verbal representation made to me at the time of rental did not indicate that I would be responsible for any rental charges. Furthermore, I signed or initialed seven items on the rental agreement indicating agreement to the terms. I would think that I would have been asked to initial or sign the daily rental amount when two different amounts appeared on the contract.

Enterprise employs of a bunch of scam artists who engage in predatory practices and the parent company ought to be ashamed.

I sent them a letter to their customer service address and what a surprise, no response.

I rented a car for a day to visit my brother as he was having open heart surgery about 200 miles from my home. The surgery was delayed so I informed them of it and asked if returned the car in the morning would their be any additional charges. she said there actually would be a 19.30 credit to my account after the question , her statement was true, but not the correct answer. I returned the car the following morning at 9am as she had specified and the "credit" was a actually what was left of a 100 deposit they charged me the previous day. had I known they were going to charge me another day for the rental, insurance and damage waiver. I would have returned it later in the day instead of rushing to get there at 9 am. I felt I was mislead because my question was specific. "will I be charged additional if I bring in the car later " I read the fine print and it says they can charge for that. They also charged me for a gallon or two of gas though I has filled the tank as well, AND when i gave back my sheet at check in, there was scribbled in something about a 100 detail charge for smoking, something that I never agreed to or even was aware of. These people will squeeze every dime from you that they can get. They were nice to me, but so what!

Enterprise Rent-A-Car very poor service!

Below you will see a string of emails sent to the enterprise rent a car's customer service.

Email number 1

Customer (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) 12/15/2006 02:30 pm
I am a customer of the enterprise location on drake road in farmington hills michigan.

In my opinion I received extremely poor service. I rented a car due to a car accident. I arrive at your location and rented a vehicle. I had the insurance claim number, location of where the car was being repaired, drivers license, and my insurance. about one week into my rental I started to recieve calls about not having the proper information in my file. I politely called back jeff, the manager and gave him the information again. then a few days later he called me back requesting the very same information that I gave him the first time he called. then a few more days went by and he called me again, this time to told him to email me the questions, again they were the same questions that I answered now two times. for the third time I responded with the information. then on december 13th, 2006 I arrived home from work to another message for me to call jeff because he needed the claim number, and the location of the collision shop. this time I called him back to tell him that I already gave him the information and that I would not furnish it for a fourth time. then just yesterday I received a call from someone else at the office his name was mike who requested the information for a fifth time. this is getting to the point that you are harassing me. I think that jeff, mike and the girl that rented me the vehicle to begin with needs to either take better notes and get things done right the first time not five times later or they need to find another line of work. I have never in my life ever seen such incompentence.

I would appreciate a call from your corporate headquarters so that I can elaborate further.

Their response:
Thank you for bringing your concern to our attention.

Complete customer satisfaction is our number one priority at enterprise and we assure you that we are working to resolve your situation. your message and information has been sent to kenneth kamba our regional vice president, and someone will be contacting you shortly. if you would like to contact us directly, call [protected]. also, you can find additional information by logging on to www.enterprise.com, and going to the about us section. there you can click on contact us, or the press room/faq’s for more information that might be helpful.

Thank you, and we look forward to working with you to resolve your concern.

The problem I had was that I never received a call from that individual and they listed a number on the email that does not even exist. they really don't want to deal with problems they only want to push them aside and hope they go away. here is my response to the email they sent me:

I received this email from monica who said that kenneth kamba was going to be contacting me shortly. I have not yet received a call from him and it is now wednesday afternoon the 20th of december. not only have I not received a call from him but the number that you listed on the email "[protected]" is not even a working number. apparently enterprise rent a car resolves issues by making the executives not even reachable. this is only an extension of your poor service. I would appreciate a call from your corporate headquarters before the end of the week.

When I picked up my rental car there was only 3.1 gallons of gas in the tank. When I returned the vehicle there was in excess of 9 gallons in the tank. I want reimbursed for the additional 6 gallons of fuel that I put in the car! Your local office refuses to do so.

I rented a car from them 6/29/2023 and returned the car 8/1/2023. After then, I got charged on my credit card on 8/9/2023 with the amount of $16.60 as "enterprise rent a car". I called them and they told me it was toll. And then I got another charge of the same amount on my credit card again on 9/29/2023 as "ERAC TOLL". They duplicate the charges.

I rented a car from this location. I called & talked to the assistant manger and explained I was filling up the car with gas & I would like to drop car at the London Airport instead of at 288 Horton Street. He said no problem. I now have a charge of $125 that I was not told about.

Good morning,

No one has called me in reference to you guys taking my money of almost over $800 and can’t tell me why. I am very upset over this and have complained several times to several people and no one has resolved this only ignored me. I need help and no one cares.

We returned the car after the check engine light came on and got our money back for remaining days and our deposit. 5 weeks later I received an email saying I owed 350.00 for the part that caused the check engine light. How am I responsible for normal wear and tear.

Date of returned vehicle was Feb. 2023
