Since I don’t own a car, I rent pretty often. Sometimes from Hertz and the like for weekends, but more often from Zipcar. It allows me to try a lot of different cars so I thought I should start documenting my experiences.

Tonight, I reserved an Audi A3 hatchback for an hour and was really impressed. It drove great; the controls were intuitive, and it looked pretty attractive for a hatchback. I love cars with slap shift so that was fun to use. It was so smooth on the highway that as my passenger turned to me, we had already hit the speed he told me to stay under.

Thumbs up for the Audi. I’d definitely buy one especially if I had a reason to need the hatchback regularly.
