I haven't driven a Volt yet, but I hear they are nice. Too bad rental companies don't offer more interesting vehicles. I'm surprised they even bother putting a Fusion hybrid on their lot.

I've tried some of the "sporty" offerings like the Dodge Charger and was very unimpressed. There is no reason to offer a low performance version of higher performance cars when they inherit the drawbacks of performance cars such as limited cargo volume, limited amenities, and relatively poor fuel economy.

What are your preferences for a rental car? Any others I should check out?
