We got an old (~10 years) Dacia Duster, which does not have A/C! In Iceland! Where it is always raining and windows get foggy instantly! Initially, we have not even noticed it and had to learn a hard way. Hence, the entire trip we had to have a heater on full blast + slightly opened window to push the moister out.
When we took the car, it had a full tank (8/8). After ~5 minutes driving, one section was gone (7/8), which was very disappointing. In the middle of our trip, we had to stop to refill and after filling up the tank (8/8), we drove ~150km until the 1st section was gone. After I mentioned this to SadCars - they said that is not their job to check if the tank is actually full as long as it shows full on the dashboard.
Apparently, Dacia Duster's horn is not in the middle of the steering wheel (as normal for most of the cars in Europe). When we rented the vehicle, assistant has not mentioned anything about this and we almost got into an accident when the car that we were overtaking started overtaking the car in-front. For the entire duration of the trip, we assumed that the horn is simply broken.
On the 2nd day of our trip the remote control of the vehicle stopped working and we couldn't close the car before going on the excursion. Hence, we took our passports and left all the things in the unlocked vehicle hoping that nobody will steal anything. Straight after that, on our next stop, we were unable to unlock the vehicle with the remote and spent 10-15 minutes trying to do that whilst it was crazy windy and raining outside [Using a key on the door lock did not work at all]. Assistant at Sad Cars said that we should have called and they would instructed us to go to the nearest petrol station for the new battery.
All in all, I would not recommend this rental. Better pay a little extra and have a decent vehicle in a country where weather is unpredictable and prices are sky high. I have explained all this to the assistant at Sad Cars, but not for 1 second she looked concerned or interested to resolve my dissatisfaction.
