Consolidated "Renting at SFO; What Kind of Cars to Expect?" Thread

I picked up from the SFO Ultimate Choice/PC area Sunday night.

98% of the choices were standard Full Size selections - with the Camry, Sonata, and Malibu well represented. Looked like a standard Emerald Aisle (National) with nothing particularly nice or well-equipped.

There were three (3) cars of any interest in the entire section, which was full: a brand new Kia Optima Hybrid, a Volvo V60, and a Mercedes SLK. Would have taken the SLK, but there not enough trunk space for anything other than a soft bag. I asked a lot employee if there was any way to get a different convertible (i.e., Camaro, Mustang) or another premium-type vehicle with a larger trunk and was told no. Very strange to me that I got so much pushback when another SLK was being offered for a hefty upcharge in the "upgrade" area and there were plenty of other cars (i.e., Infiniti Q50, Mercedes C300) being offered for less than that. I was told I'd have to pay the upgrade fee to get one of those, which did not make any sense.

I took the V60.
