Recent rentals post-Transit sans suffix: 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan GT. 3k miles from Alamo SEA. Pros: - always liked the Pentastar - power doors and hatch - navi! unexpectedly - great visibility Cons: - Garmin based headunit looks 20 years out of date - no fancy modern safety things at all: adaptive cruise, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, auto brake all absent Verdict: Quite ok for a rental. 2018 Volvo XC90 T6 Momentum. Also 3k miles, from Avis at a local Denver outlet. Pros: - looks gorgeous - familiar interfaces to me - decent power, as quick as my XC40 T5 (smaller vehicle with less powerful engine) - a bit quieter road noise than the XC40, both on 20”s - all the safety tech one can imagine Cons: - weird 4 red light HUD-ish thing nagging me when following too closely (but not really). I felt like Picard. “There are... four lights!” - key fob randomly dead so I couldn’t lock it! and could only run it with the dead fob in one particular center console cup holder marked for just this reason Verdict: I’d rented an Escape or equivalent. Very pleased with getting this for that rate. 2018 Ford Explorer XLT. Similarly about 3k miles, from a local Denver non-airport Avis. Pros: - very quiet, on par with the wife’s PacHy - adaptive cruise, blind spot warning, and auto brake all present - long cargo area when 2nd and 3rd rows folded Cons: - dashboard and wheel buttons are an aesthetic nightmare - gutless non-Ecoboost V6 - thickest A pillar bases of all time and medium high beltline - high cargo floor and narrow between rear wheel intrusions, making getting my (long, wide, bulky) bike in tough - questionable build quality: trim piece on 3rd row already broken despite being barely used, but there’s no upside to me reporting this (still works to recline the row, just flopping about) - adaptive cruise is not stop and go. Cuts out when traffic slows below 12 mph and can’t resume until 20 mph Verdict: For this one I rented an Explorer or equivalent as that was exactly the same price as an Escape or equivalent. I’ve had far worse rentals.
