Can you believe Alamo ran out of rental cars? That’s like KFC running out of chicken… which ironically happened to me before as well. There was literally a line of people waiting for cars. Did I mention that this Alamo was in Las Vegas? I could understand if this was a small town in Alaska, but in Vegas. How does a rental car company run out of cars in Vegas? Needless to say I waited 60 minutes in the freezing cold before cars started trickling in. Lucky for me I was one of the first in line. After being offered and denying a few gas guzzlers, I settle for this Chevy Malibu. I was absolutely amazed at how comfortable this car was. This was the first car that I’ve driven 5 hours straight without feeling any discomfort. I felt like I could have driven this car forever. This Chevy Malibu ended up being excatly what I need. It lacked a little bit of horse power but a perfect car for traveling.
