It's still a rental car, active and in service. But I get it what you are saying Teedot.
I checked the VIN JimmyNY no open or closed recall data. The car went into service in November of '15 or so. Maybe there have not been any recalls that affect this particular 2016 model. I've rented several rental cars. Outside of my stupid and misguided youth, I have treated rentals very kindly. Most will say the same.
It's actually got 33k miles. Not 36k but that's not so important
Black just seems to be more expensive and I'm "**** bent" on black/gray so trying to get a dealer into a position to give me a great deal based on my specs is tougher than just accepting "ok, you have white/beige (barf) at my price well then ok".
They are giving me THREE days with the car. If Hyundai tech and my personal mechanic can't figure out whats going on with the car well then there is no hope for me.
Time is a factor and I don't want to go around getting quotes from shady dealers. (granted Hertz can be shady too)
15k is top of my range with taxes title incl...
The Hertz Rent to Buy message board is full of people who are fine with their outcome.
It's going to be a work-car, rideshare to be exact, I theoretically lose out on the warranty anyway. (residual warranty maybe challenged I know)
Anyway, I am renting it this Saturday I'll keep you all up to date...
