Every other car rode and drove as it should.

Having said that my 2004 focus was a Hertz rental I bought the car with 27,000ish miles. Now the car has 162,000 trouble free miles with regular maitience. So while most say no. Myself and others I know have had nothing but good luck with used rental cars.
Personal experience. The insurance you buy with the rental seems to absolve alot of people from guilt of abusing the car. I've seen people hit curbs, back into fire hydrants, hill hop, etc. I've also seen people bang shift the auto, force the car over redline, over load the car in weight and use the car to try to push another. Hell, I know a guy that rented a cavilier and autox'ed with it.
