    It’s just a matter of convenience, and it’s expensed anyways.

    Personal travel, It’s a few minutes saved on the way back to the airport.

    But some companies are amazingly forgiving. My wife put a HUGE scratch in a fender once. She was SURE they were gonna ding her for it.

    They didn't even bat an eye.
    Not Enterprise. They will get you for anything. It’s a scam they run.

    Absolutely. I am a bit hard on the engine, I suppose, but any modern car should be able to handle it.

    I did buy a Saab Convertible that was a rental. Other then the serpentine belt breaking on the way home with it, it was rock solid the rest of the time.
    The serpentine belt is a known issue with that particular Saab that MUST be changed every 40,000 miles. It had 36,000 when we bought. In case you're wondering why I didn't just return it right then.

    Oh I am hard on any engine, but I agree, they can take it.

    My careful is more just in my style of driving. Depending on what kind of rental I have I can't always assume it has the same pickup and power my CX-5 has so I am less apt to try to "beat that car and make that turn" or do something sudden, is more what I meant if that makes sense.
