Stupid cheap weekend rates so got a car for the weekend.

With the impending snow the EA/ES was FCAR city. Impalas, Malibus, Camries galore with 2 or 3 minivans also. A couple small SUVs (Rogue, RAV4) out there as well, but none were AWD. SUV aisle was cleaned out as well. Snagged a 4WD Suburban that was hiding in the far corner of the ES, all the way against the fence...guess they missed that one! Upgrade aisle had a Yukon XL and a Flex, did not get close enough to see what else was up there.

Rented this afternoon since the rate was really cheap - $34 for 3 days all in - even with parking it was quite a bit cheaper than cab downtown.

Anyways, 3/14 thurs at5 PM - EA/ES was lots of Impalas, lots of smaller SUVs, couple of Altimas (almost took one), a 300 (without keys), a Challenger, a 200 convertible, and way in the back row a Touareg (that I took).

Tuesday 8PM

EA/ES was all minivans and a couple Yukons. I hung around for a while, eventually a couple pickup trucks (Ram, F-150), some 200's, a Challenger (a V6 with SS/T package featuring 20" chrome wheels) and an XC60 were pulled up. The lot employee was perplexed that I chose the XC60 over the Impala she had brought up "special" for me.

VIP/Upgrade had a BMW 328i, Tahoe LTZ, an XC60, a 2013 MKZ, and a 200 Convertible. Premium was otherwise empty.

Looking to rent @ DTW

I'm going to need a 7 passenger vehicle from Detroit in the beginning of June,
was wondering if someone would know the chances of reserving a midsize from National and being able to choose a 7 pas. at DTW.
I am a executive elite member.
Thanks

They have a few Buick Enclaves / GMC Acadias (both 7 pax vehicles), in the Executive Aisle and I've been able to get both.

YMMV
