Après un soucis pour l'accès à la clef ou Vitor a du venir nous ouvrir en moins de 30mns, heureusement la serrure du local était réparé à notre retour. En résumé: très agréable. voiture propre mais beaucoup d'insectes collés qui ne sont pas parti après notre voyage : ils sont la depuis longtemps. un seul défaut: la voiture vibre quand on freine . La consommation est supérieure à 11l au x 100kms si on fait de l'urban mais a pu descendre en dessous de 8l dès que l on prend les routes.
A little scratched up in places but it was clean, drove fine, was super easy to pick up, and easy on the wallet : ) Thanks!

Jake was great to deal with and his car was extra clean(i mean extra clean!)
