Great host. With a. Short notice change to my business trip we were able to adjust the car rental with no problem. This car....might as well be all electric. I don’t recall how much I drive, but I don’t think I burned a drop of fuel!!!! Great city/point to point ride.

I absolutely hate leaving bad reviews for car hosts, and I rarely do so. The overall cosmetic condition of the car is never an issue for me, and Balaji’s car looked presentable, the price was great, the miles allowed was exactly what we needed for our business trip to Houston and convenience factor was great, the host was accommodating in pick-up/return scenario as well. However, the car was COMPLETELY NOT safe to drive on public roads. 3 times out of 10 when you want this car to go, it simply wont. The delay in acceleration was sometimes over 10(!) seconds, and it simply wouldn’t move at all. Few times I had close calls with other cars; changing lanes on highways, making right or left turns on roadways, or simple accelerating from a stop light. Imagine trying to make a right turn, slow down, and then floor the car to accelerate, but it won’t go, the drivers in the back had to slam on their brakes many times to avoid rear ending this car. Same goes for braking, 3 times out of 10, the car would launch forward at slow speeds before making a complete stop. So I always had to calculate the distance and give it extra space to brake. I apologize for leaving this bad review, but in the condition this car is at the moment, it’s only a matter of time before someone rear ends it.
