Take for instance I know Zipcar is there for me when I get a flat tire.
First off, I picked up Zova for a weekend where I just needed to go go. Zova is a Honda Fit and it has Go-Cart like handling with enough room for me to go grocery shopping.
So when Zova headed to the right and the low tire illuminated I was thinking, no big deal change the tire with the spare and be on my way.
Nope. That is why I have a soft spot for Zipcar, Roadside Assistance is there 24/7 and while I thought about calling it. I knew my weekend plans did not include waiting for a tow truck.
I took Zova back where I picked up and made the call to Customer Service because I wasn't in danger and it wasn't an Emergency.
The customer service rep was quick and understanding and I moved my reservation from Zova over to the Ford Focus Hatchback Harlen. I was back on the road and taking calls from friends stuck in traffic asking if I could be in Martinez to pick them up at noon.
( Yes I am that person you call when you know I got a Zipcar ).
Whereas my original plans to be somewhere around a lot more cars
I changed them in effort to make sure I didn't go over my miles and two that didn't get sunburnt.
The Ford Focus Hatchback Harlen is white and purrs on the road. I traveled back and forth in Harlen and even took Highway 17 where the CHP and I waved at each other
( Yes, I wave at police officers as I drive by- don't you? ).
All in all, Zipcars are not right around the block where I live the closest one is a good 10 miles away from my house but since the local bus service is discontinuing I am going to have to make a decision to invest more into Zipcar or move.
