Even without that's the most comprehensive list I've ever seen. With some ridiculous stuff, too, like a Yaris 2-door being a compact. Have you seen how tiny one of those is? I'd also like to know where to get a Mini Cooper as a YB. Those are some real extremes. Maybe similar size-wise, but the Mini is several thousand bucks more expensive than the Yaris.

For that matter, it would be downright amazing to score an RX8 as a YD.

And some other stuff along those lines. Have to wonder if some of those car models only exist at one location.

When I got a Honda Accord recently at SFO it was a YF -- not YD.

When I printed the original list it was s 56 pages long...Some of the car classes depend on the city that owns the car.

Some of these classes don't seem to make any sense at all.

Quote:
Class C (Intermediate)
Toyota Corolla
Saturn Ion
Mazda 6
Kia Optima
The Corolla and Ion are much smaller than the Optima, and smaller than many of the "compact" cars. If you pass up a "compact" Ford Focus to get an "upgrade" to an "intermediate" and find a Saturn Ion there, that is not really an upgrade (the Focus is bigger inside and better).

Quote:
Class H (Premier Premium)
BMW 325i
BMW 525i
Audi A4
Kia Amanti
Toyota Avalon
Hyundai Azera
Cadillac CTS
Volvo S60
Somehow, I doubt the drivers who would like to drive a BMW 325i or 525i would be satisfied with a Kia Amanti or Toyota Avalon. Or vice-versa.

Bumping again, this list is too helpful to be ignored.

Mods, please make this a sticky.

For that matter, make me a Mod if you like. I've never been one, but I've been around long enough I should pitch in.

The list is two years old and isn't up-to-date. There have been many changes since this was posted.

it's a trick to lure customers and charge for an upgrade

I think this is their way to lure customers to reserve a car with them and charge an upgrade later. I recently reserved a Mazda6 (or similar), but when I picked up my car, the agent told me I can get a Nissan Sentra or Toyota Corolla, or pay extra to upgrade to Altima. Despite the fact that there were several Mazda6 on the lot, the agent claimed that they were not available because they didn't show up on her computer.
