Recommend against Thrifty Belize

Just got back from a great trip to Belize, great except for the car rental. Reserved a Full Size SUV at BZE, got a Jeep Liberty with 120,000 miles on it, crack nearly across the entire front window, no shocks at all on both front wheels, and a radiator hose that came apart half-way through the trip and required me to nurse the vehicle back. I've rented a number of cars in Latin America over the years and don't expect a brand new car with 0 miles on it. However, this was ridiculous. Thrifty offered to let me "upgrade" to an Armada for a significant increase in price, otherwise it was this car or nothing. My recommendation is to go with one of the local sites, which appeared well stocked with newer, better condition cars, and whatever you do don't go with Thrifty regardless of the price!
