Do PCs get upgraded from these RSAR cars or not?

Had reservations at MIA and MCO for the same V4-RSAR class and I think that Hertz got a new fleet in.

At MIA got a fully loaded white Camaro 2SS 2019/20 with only 1k miles on the clock. Had sunroof, leather seats, 20" inch wheels and all other bells and whistles.



At MCO got a silver Mustang GT which I think is base model but with leather seats and a variable exhaust, but only with 100 miles on the clock. Found out that was the 2nd rental of the car since it arrived on their lot.




Turned out very satisfied.

I currently have a 2019 Camaro SS out of DFW. It’s a bada$$ car that absolutely loves to drink gas.

Good thing the gas costs ~$2.50/gal around here.

I don’t know if it’s marked on the IP anywhere, but the SS recommends premium (93) gasoline.

I rented Hertz Adrenaline Collection V4 out of EWR on Sunday. I got a White Camaro SS. I saw at least one other identical Camaro while walking to mine. Very happy as I wanted an extended test drive of this car.

May 2019 - here is what I got today...

Short answer is 2019 Challenger R/T ... Reservation was for Adrenaline Collection, Camaro SS, Mustang GT or similar (picture was showing Challenger as a third option).

Longer story is: I got confirmation as Gold member to proceed to stall and pick up the challenger car... I asked if they had any hard top camaro’s (this was on Chicago Ohare terminal with Hertz) and I got the answer that they will look into it... after 15-20 minutes of checking I was told that there was a convertible camaro SS, but it is a different class... I still asked if they can check for hard top camaro ss, but no luck on finding one on the lot... so while they did not have one on the lot, and challenger was it for me I asked even for hard top if it was part of the V4 group, and I was told no... camaro SS was not part of v4 group and would not be able to get one under same pricing... further they stated I could get a camaro under v4 group but it would not be SS one... they did not know if 8t was turbo 4cyl or v6 version...

since they did not have hardtop Camaro SS, or they did not want to tell me, I showed my reservation telling them that hertz.com website has it differently... camaro ss and mustang gt were actually part of v4 adrenaline collection, and they were surprised to see my confirmation from hertz... well, spent almost half an hour waiting on them to check, and gave up the hunt for camaro ss hars top, and drove off in nice challenger 2019 with 1770 miles on the odometer...

If they had camaro ss hard top, I would have gotten that, paid whatever charge extra is to my original reservation, enjoy it, pay all, and them call corporate to get my money reimbursed whatever the difference was because of 5e upcharge... since that was not the case, I asked how much would be for camaro ss convertible, and it was $100... I initially said yeah lets go with that one, but receipt got printed, and I saw $400 additonal price hike... so yeah, $100 PER DAY EXTRA ... no, thanks but no thanks... went w challenger for $232 for 4 calendar days (96hrs) as U had some discounts, it was a weekend plus one day rental for wuick weekend gateway ...

all in all Chicago ohare apparently does “not” have hard top Camaro SS, but likely bunch of Challenger R/Ts ... so if you count on getting Gat or SS, do not expect that you will be getting one, but instead challenger awaits...

too bad, I really wanted SS, but have to admit sound and power of R/T is oretty decent too ... so not bad overall

FWIW, I had a Camaro SS convertible at LAS a few years ago, and it was class U4. The coupes (Camaro SS / Challenger RT / Mustang GT) should all be the same class as each other but not the same as the convertibles. Bummer they couldn’t find you a hardtop Camaro, but I like the Challengers too.

Member: PC. Place: CLT (Charlotte, NC),
Booked: (V4) Mustang GT/Camaro SS
Received: (U4) Chevy Camaro SS Convertible

Arrived at CLT on Saturday morning, there were 4 cars in front of parking lots: 3 Camaro SS convertible and 1 Challenger Hemi.
I'm supposed to get the challenger and hertz staff also said this challenger is brand new! maybe only ~5 miles. But I asked if I could ride with convertible.
Done. Got a 2019 camaro ss convertible with only ~1200 miles.

Return on Sunday afternoon, I saw at least 3-4 camaros, not sure model, but some were convertible.
Pretty good selection @CLT Hertz, much better than National.

​​​​​​At ORD, you're pretty much all but guaranteed a base Challenger RT. Maybe one with a sunroof. I personally haven't seen any SS at ORD and have never seen the Scat Pack at Hertz in general. Although, I have seen a lot of SS Camaros and GT mustangs at IND recently some of which have Illinois plates. YMMV

Thanks for the reply ^

I'll have to just keep my fingers crossed one of the Illinois plate cars makes it's way to ORD then as as the R/T just isn't on the same level IMO
