How often do people get in rental cars thinking they are like new? They are clean and shiny, but the truth is that they may have been driven pretty hard. They may have been treated more like a rock star's hotel room than property that you expect to own for awhile.
But, according to a great piece by ThePopTorts, there may be bigger problems than that. Apparently, the companies may not be paying attention to recalls. There has been testimony that they have been doing it intentionally. They don't want the down time and maybe like some of the renters they may not really care.
There are many writers here at the Injurboard who write about the dangers that exist on those perfect vacations:
