Are the Model 3s in PC always the standard version, or any lr/performance too?

Got a K/GCAR Large Elite Sedan booked for next weekend. What's the current offerings? Would a G80 come under this code, because I feel like I'd be being mislead a bit if I got this... I guess trading out of it to a lower class would be easy / accepted by Hertz?

PC today had GV70 RWD, Jeep wrangler, Nissan Rogue AWD SL and SV, Nissan Murano SL, multiple Polestar 2's (probably FWD, not sure how to tell whether they are FWD or AWD), and RWD Tesla M3's, Chevy Traverse, Nissan Pathfinder, Subaru Forester, Dodge Charger, Chevy Camaro, Chrysler Pacifica. Also saw some Polestar 2's in the ultimate choice section, so I assume these are the AWD models. Was looking for an AWD car so I took the Rogue SL which was a 2023 model with only 1000 miles; very well equipped w/pano sunroof.

Pretty good selection today - Sunday, 3/26, at 10pm.

pick your color 4 cylinder Camaro & mustang, rogues, traverse, altimas. tons of teslas, tons of polestars - sadly, no charger r/tís or any v8 sports car I could find.

better selection here than at national which was a pleasant surprise!

I'm renting at SFO next month a 'Medium Luxury SUV' (T4). Does anyone know what cars they usually give you? I see it has a Cadillac XT5 listed but how variable is this?

I've got Presidents Circle status, but I'm guessing you don't get an upgrade on this car category?

I've ended up in many XT5 from SFO; they are very common there over the other cars listed in the category. PC upgrades are only for sedans and up to a full-size. Your only other option would be to seek something superior in the Ultimate Choice aisles (unlikely) or find something that has a reasonable cash upgrade price.

Curious if anyone had seen any Polestar 1s still in the fleet? Have a bit of a road trip coming up and would be a nice upgrade

Pick your color Rogue or Malibu
Toyota Rav4
Chevy Equinox
Dodge Challenger

Surprised to not see any electric vehicles in the PC lot. I ended up taking a pretty new Buick Envision from Five-Star lot which had panoramic roof, remote start and working XM radio and was a decent small suv.

PC aisle was almost completely empty around 6 PM today. Noticed a couple Volvo C40 Recharges and a Subaru Solterra charging, which I haven't seen in the fleet before.
