Know Before You Go: Create a Rental Car Checklist
While your rental car might include some fun features like heated seats, a sunroof or SiriusXM Satellite Radio, other features are more essential for driving. Make a list of features you should locate before you hit the road. Start by asking yourself these questions:
How do I start this thing?
How do I turn on the headlights?
How do I turn on the wipers?
How do I pop the trunk?
Which side is the gas tank on? How do I open the gas tank door?
Where’s the parking brake?
Where’s the USB port?
What if I have additional questions?
