Is Advantage car rental reputable?

I, too, looked into Advantage because their rates were soooo low. When I did a little research, I found that they had terrible reviews (many of which pertain to them low-balling you, then charging you way more when you actually get there). I decided not to go with them. I'd rather pay a little more, and not have all the hassle.

We just rented a vehicle through Advantage for our trip to Miami, we rented the vehicle at the Ft. Lauderdale airport. We had a horrible experience and will not rent from them again. We selected Advantage because of the low price, and, I found a 5% coupon in addition. To summarize: our vehicle was not ready at the prebooked time, the representative put undue pressure on us to upsell to gas and all insurance (not necessary), it was borderline harassment. Advantage then tried to upsell us to another vehicle vs. comping for their mistake, or, placing us in a less expensive vehicle. It was our impression that, perhaps, the Advantage locations are independently run, no 'brand name' rental agency has ever made such a series of mistakes/upsold us so hard. Separately, the Advantage location is significantly away from the airport. While there was a single bus, it was not on the major route nor with the other rental agencies, this was a significant waste of time to travel back/forth to Advantage. We will only rent from standard brand names in the future.
