Flew in 1/16 (Wed night before holiday weekend) at 11PM.
Good selection of standard cars, one pickup, no SUVs.

ES had decent selection for a Thursday afternoon ...

- Taurus Limited
- VW Tiguan (4Motion)
- Chevy Suburban
- Nissan Maxima
- Subaru Legacy and Outback
- VW Passat
- Ford Escape
- Ford Explorer

EA had a lot of Chevy Impalas. I didn't take good inventory but did see a VW Beetle.

We had a premium reservation, so I swung through the premium and speciality rows. Completely empty. Didn't see anything that would remotely resemble a "premium" or luxury vehicle in my book.

Exec aisle had a load of Suburbans, a few 300's, a Flex and also a 2013 Pathfinder but it was a base model which sucked so I went with an LTZ Suburban loaded.

Suburban LTZ? Wow, that's excellent news as I've never seen anything but LT and LS models on the lots. So you've got the 20" wheels and heated steering wheel?

I think it was 20" wheels, they were the big chrome wheels and it had the honeycomb grille. Black with black leather.

Cars at DEN

I was through the ES yesterday (1/30) before noon. Limited SUV selection with a GMC Terrain, a VW and a Subaru but quite a few Silverado trucks. I snagged a new Silverado LT crew cab with 3 miles for my weekend trip to the mountains. I didn't pay a lot of attention to cars but I do recall walking past quite a few Impalas.

2/8 through 2/11

Landed in DEN in the evening on 2/8 for a 3 day trip to Breckenridge. I was very concerned about SUV availability with all the expected snow for the weekend. Pleasantly surprised to see plenty of smaller SUV's including several GMC Acadia's and one Ford Edge. Sometimes you just don't know unless you ask, so the Mrs. offered $10 if the agent would pull up a 2013 Toyota 4-Runner for us. He happily obliged and we were fortunate to have more than enough room for all of our skiing gear. Very pleasant experience overall!

Any recent updates from National EE's and EC's using the Aisle at DEN? Got a rental booked for Monday and am hoping if there are any Subaru's around.

You should be in luck, 2 weeks ago I was there and there was a FLOOD of Subaru. They must have gotten in a recent shipment because i've never seen so many there. I took a Denali though!

Wicked! Thanks 'much. I called the location and asked a note to be put in the reservation requesting one if they had any. Not needing something big and what not since im not heading into the Mountains. Off to Nebraska.

If you are an Emerald Club reservation they won't assign you a vehicle... You pick yourself. I wish you the best of luck, but IMO the chances of them remembering/actually acting to try and hold a Subaru before your reservation are slim to none.

Well aware. I'm EE. But it doesnt hurt to call the location like i did and inquire or rather request a specific make. Of course YMMV as you noted. I didnt end up going sadly as a friend had a baby and i wasnt able to go to Nebraska!

I picked up a car early Saturday, and the EA and EE were stacked to the gills with a wide variety of vehicles. As I was going to be ferrying around a bunch of family, I snagged a Sequoia off of the ES, which was, interestingly, substantially larger than it's namesake. I couldn't really see how solid the selection was when I returned the behemoth this morning, but I've never been disappointed with the selection in DEN.
