It's Not Just Environmentalism That's Driving Customers To MPG Car Rental

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With a name like "MPG Car Rental," you probably think you know what sets them apart from the other agencies providing car rentals in Los Angeles. If you're assuming that the answer is nothing more than purely the environmental friendliness of the hybrid car rental selection at MPG Car Rental, you're disregarding the overall people-friendliness of their staff. Not only that, but their prices are so wallet-friendly, that word of mouth between customers is the best marketing they could possibly hope for. The whole place is so many different "types of friendly" you'll just have to see for yourself.

"My friends back home said it was the friendliest, place to rent a car when you visit L.A." said one satisfied customer returning her Prius C. "I knew it was some kind of environmentalist shop, but I just figured that was a California thing."

Indeed it is an "environmentalist shop," of sorts, and if you're looking for green or hybrid car rental in Los Angeles, you'd be nuts to shop for a rental anywhere. The selection at MPG Car Rental includes all the hottest green brands like Toyota and Honda, and all the latest models. In addition to the head-turning new Prius C, there's a selection of more unexpected, exotic green cars, like the Volkswagen Jetta TDI clean diesel. Young, hip customers come looking for Chevy Volt rental, since the relatively new plug-in hybrid isn't available everywhere.

But in addition to the environmental friendliness, get a load of the extremely friendly sales staff. Just contacting MPG Car Rental on the phone will give you a preview of what's in store. This staff is ready and eager to answer all your questions, and fill you in on the latest discounts and deals. But in addition to being friendly, this staff is knowledgeable, and capable of explaining this selection in mechanical detail (although don't test them on advanced thermodynamics. There are limits to what they know!)
