"I want to buy it from Enterprise or HErtz
I saw a few 2010 with 32000 miles which is a lot but the price was like 15500
The 2008-2009 i see with 28-35000 miles for 14500-15500 as well
What do you think. "
You could actually get a better deal on a "Nissan Certified Pre-Owned" 2008-2009 Altima 2.5S from a Nissan dealer! That way it would include full warranty coverage until 7-years or 100,000 miles from the original in-service date (when it was originally sold new). You can use AutoTrader.com or Nissan's CPO website to search in your area. I found several here in the Atlanta area with asking prices between $13,900 and $15,900 and no more than 46k miles on them. Note that I used the word "asking" price...unlike Enterprise and Hertz Car Sales, the prices for the Nissan CPO vehicles are usually negotiable!!! Enterprise and Hertz both have a no-haggle policy, which works in their favor rather than the buyer's!
Here's a link to the Nissan CPO site- http://www.nissanusa.com/apps/cpo/?dcp=omd.47323159.&dcc=0.233895660&dcn=1

thanks so much zoom zoom
I am going to look now and see if I can get a deal,
Tell me, I was thinking of getting an Nissan Altima. I didnt like the reviews on the Accord, but dou think I can look for a 2009 for that range and get lucky. I guess Igot spoiled by looking on the rental sites and seeing those good prices for 2010 at 15500, but I am going to look at the 2 sites you gave me.
Can u alos explain to me the warranty and the certified stuff.
The rental only wanted to give 12000 miles or a year.

Hello! Did you end up purchasing a vehicle from Hertz? I've been looking for a used car and prices are truly insane right now. I was looking at some of the vehicles at some nearby Hertz locations, and I'm finding some 2009-2010 Mazda 6s with 30-40k miles for about $12-13k. In comparison to a dealership, I'm seeing an 07 Camry with 92k miles for #13k or an 06 Civic with 100k miles for $14k. Unfortunately, price is an object for me as I am a college student and my insurance is already very expensive. Short of the standard "get the car checked at a mechanic" response I'd very much appreciate any advice regarding buying a used vehicle from Hertz versus a dealership like Hyundai or Toyota (seeing as most of their used cars are bought from auction, it seems like there's a similar chance for someone to really use and abuse the car anyways...)
