Overall renting Kathryn's car worked out well. Communication could be better - I didn't hear from her until the night before I was meant to pick up the car at 9am and the drop-off was similarly poorly communicated. However, it all worked out so it wasn't too inconvenient.
The car itself ran well and was easy to drive, but there was some plastic from underneath the front left tire that was somewhat loose (it was duct-taped) and scraped along the road intermittently. Not a real safety hazard, but somewhat disconcerting.
I had a great trip with Katie's Subaru! The location and price were fantastic and Katie was great at communicating all the details. She also allowed me to bring back her car early which was very helpful for me. Would definitely rent again if her car is available!
Kathryn was really nice and communicated the logistics of this trip very well. She was easily reachable and helpful with inquiries. The car was great and I look forward to working with her again in the future if the chance arises again.
