Hertz Car Rentalauto leaked oil all over my garage

C Review updated:

I was involved in an accident in january 2006. The insurance company secured a rental for me from hertz rent a car. After a few weeks the auto leaked oil all over my garage and i had stepped in it and tracked it all through my house. I wrote a letter to hertz and told them of the 10 hours that i spent coordinating the pick up of the car and the time that it took me to rent another car. Also, in the letter, i told them i spent 6 hours on sunday cleaning up the oily mess that was all over my kitchen and garage. The people at hertz sent me a check for $90 to cover my time and cleaning supplies. What a joke. In my letter, i requested $500 for my time and effort. I live along the chesapeake bay and that was an environmental issue. They should have considered themselves lucky that - 1 - i knew better than to try to drive that car and 2 - i did not hire an environmental unit to clean up this mess. So, hertz, if i can get as many as possible to see how you operate and not rent cars from you, i will have gotten my money worth. Thank you for listening and i would appreciate you posting this complaint on your web sight.

    Hertz's website has posted hours on their site that they closed at 11pm, I get their at 6:30pm and their closed . I call them the next morning and was told too bad we have your credit card we will charge the extra days.

    Please take a good look on the car that we got and you can let me know if it's acceptable or not.

    Was waiting for customer care to return my email regarding the rental which I had in Vegas, it's more than a week now⋯⋯⋯⋯I guess, Herz does care !!! What a joke .

    I had the worst ever experience on top of being called a liar then over charged for a compact car, I will never rent from hertz ever again they are the absolute worst !!! Blessing is one lying, rude, ignorant human being . The car I rented even needed maintenance done and I was told to ignore it as well as needed to be cleaned out.

    I want to report that I'm not satisfied with the with the customer service that I received renting a car at your Orlando -West Colonial - HLE location, on 07/13/2017. The representative had a bad aura about him, as if he didn't want to wait on my husband & I. We have rented from that location before and never left with a heavy heart until today.

    I was to pick up my rental at 11am. The representative called me and said they had to bring a car from Newton, KS to Junction city. I'm very, very upset as this has put me back towards my arrival time. Your business location is very unorganized and I am requesting some form of compensation for my wait time

    I am trying to rent an adapted car in Spain and they claim they only have 2 in the whole country. Why Herts don't treat disabled people the same in other countries? I just need hand controls.

    I put in for a reservation with hertz as I always do. This Guy that was helping me was very nasty with no customer service at all. He told me he could put me in a mini van instead of the SUV I had reservation for that weekend. I ended up leaving Hertz without anything.

    Traffic offence in Italy, I was charged $30.50 euros from my credit card by Hertz, then no assistance or guidance on how to pay this traffic ticket. How do I even know if it's legitimate? I hear this being a common complaint with Hertz in Italy. I believe it's a HUGE SCAM.

    I rented a car 8-10 October in Italy from Rome to Venice.
    Hertz took a deposit of 300 euros and after the drop -off promised to return 172 euros within 3-5 days
    15 days have passed, but I haven't got any money

    I rented a car on Dec. 23 from Hertz Las Vegas airport location. The first rental broke down on the 26 and I missed an important meeting and on the second tine with a different car it ran hot and stopped cranking. Hertz at the Las Vegas wrote a report up. They said to report this and i might get my money back.

    Hertz is the worst rental service I have ever had the displeasure in dealing with after taking my money then refusing to rent me a car they refuse to issue a refund giving me my money back. I wouldnt reccomend this company to my worst enemy.
