Hello, I have booked Fullsize Elite Group K GCAR for DTW location coming up in few weeks. It says I will get Jaguar XF or similar, but realistically which car will I most likely get when I show up?

The XF is a fun car to drive. I had one last year and I absolutely loved it.

What other cars were available in that group before you chose XF?

I just booked a premium car This was in SYR last year in February.

The list shows the XF, 5-Series, E Class, and the S90. I have seen all but the BMW across the fleet in different locations.

Thank you for the info! I would prefer E class over XF, assuming it is available when I show up.

Hey FTers,

Iím booked for a Class-G PCAR rental out of BOS on Nov 24 pickup. With my PC status, what class will I be upgraded to?

The agent has confirmed I will be upgraded just not sure to what.

Any thoughts? Thank you.

PC gives you a complimentary upgrade, up to a premium car. Therefore, you will get a PCAR. Anything better is at the station's discretion.

As I mentioned in another thread, the CT6 seems to be gone, and the 740 is now a "guaranteed model" (Group O4 WCAR).

I've updated the WIKI.

D2 aka SSAR class got updated.
Was: Dodge Challenger (or similar)
Now: Ford Mustang (or similar)

Ironic Hertz continues hide the marketing-taboo words "Dodge Challenger" from their sportscar classes (see V4 aka RSAR "Mustang GT/Camaro SS") when in reality both V4/RSAR and D2/SSAR are actually mostly Dodge Challengers... bait and switch!

Interesting. I wonder if they're actually buying more Mustangs, or it's temporary like last year when the Charger was briefly the example for FCAR even though they were (and are) fairly uncommon.

Could well be.

The CT6 may still be around, but it no longer shows on group O4 where the 7 series is now a guaranteed model.

Minivan question

Hello all, Iím new here. Just wanted to see if anyone knows if Hertz primarily uses Chrysler Pacificas as their minivans? I would rather have one of those for my rental next month. If not, what are other common ones you have recently seen? Thank you!
