Nice choice. I was quite impressed by the Flex Limited I rented. Also, check in the car for the manual - it may have the SD card for nav (just make sure to put the card back where you found it when you are done with the rental!).

Thanks for the tip! I actually signed the car up for MyFordSync and was going to use the telephone-based navigation system but I will be checking the glove box for sure!

Picked up Tues 9/4 at 10pm.

Never been here before, but EA and ES were HUGE! At least 50 cars in each side.

With that said ES:

2013 Escape SEL AWD EcoBoost but no pano sunroof (Took it)
2013 Altimas (some with 7 miles on the odo)
Altimas
Chargers
Impalas
Fusions
Traverses
Yukon XL
Compass
Wrangler Unlimited
Tahoes
Suburbans
Plethora of Mopar Minivans
a CR-V (?)

Rode there with a bus load of Execs, but they all grabbed from the first or 2nd rows, seemingly not caring about the car.

Had to walk it twice to make sure there wasn't anything extraordinary hiding in there.

Glad to hear it's well stocked...I'll be coming by later today to pick up my $12.99/day weekend special. Hoping some of those Yukons are still there!

I hate it when they make the Charger a "premium".

And in Premium to boot - not EA / ES. I would hope that these were gone by now.

Funny thing was that all the rest of the 300's I saw on the lot were leather, including a couple on the EA/ES. Certainly seems that there aren't too many of these left around.

Just picked up a friend from the airport and saw a loaded 2013 Infiniti JX35 in Specialty. Looked to be brand new!

Thursday, 10/12 8PM

Decimated EA/ES. Several minivans, a Rogue, and an Outback wagon. Eventually they pulled up some Impalas and an Altima coupe.

Specialty: Empty
Premium: Subaru Legacies, 2 Avalons, and a 300

Found a Grand Cherokee Limited in the dirty stack, which was serviced and prepped for me on request. Love this station!
