Hey.. anyone have ideas as to what can be done to a rental for fun :giggle: without actually breaking it ?

Has anyone done anything crazy to their rentals ever ?

Rental i got is an IMP 2012 or 2013 i believe. I have lots of ice and snow on road so nothing too insane on highway i want to attempt. Maybe donuts in ice covered empty parking lot to check out its performance or traction control features ? :devil:

drive fast then brake and see how far you slide so when you stop place a flag on the spot and see if you can go farther the second time :lol: never did it bt sure sounds like fun. But make sure everything is clear and have a good empty distant road

before doing anything is rental covered by insurance that you get thru them? If so go for it just don't hurt anyone

Whenever I get a rental, I take my dog for a ride and I eat a spagetti dinner in it. In my car, no dog, no food, no liquids other than clear liquids. So I go crazy in the rental. It that what you meant for crazy?

i can attempt reverse donuts maybe ? :WTF:

@12ltz i think damages would be covered upto 100$ deductible, cause my insurance follows me and covers the vehicle i drive, even in usa if i get a rental it covers it.

@1impalavision1 hmmm where do i find flags now in the winter will try dollarorama.

@TSS .. i have no dog or cat and nope that's not what when i meant by going postal.

I only read the OP so this may have been covered.. But why not be a sensible adult and treat each thicker you drive like you own? Why do people feel the need to treat things they aren't responsible for like garbage?

/end rant

Cause at the end of the day.. i am driving a Malibu LT.. it has no fking remote start like my imp. does; so have to wait 10 minutes inside the car freezing my buttocks off. Plus just because i do not have fun with rental does not mean the guy before me did not :giggle: .. there is a left out feeling plus if car cannot take simple attempts at faster accelerations or attempt donuts why bother calling it a brand new car ? Rental companies should start renting out 2000 clunkers instead.

/end rant !!

Plus who really buys a rental car out ?( o wait i almost did a dodge charger 2012 :biggrin:)? To top it all off it don't even have power seat even for the driver :WTF:

Actually I might pickup a Fusion 2013 maybe almost bought that car and see how it behaves.

This is from malibu's website itself "People Who Know and Love Cars Love Malibu." who agrees with that ?

Apple not falling far from a tree???


Must've been what his daddy was thinking.
That would explain why he's in this situation in the first place...?
Just an idea. :wink:

Not when you have a car as big as ours. Lol my buddys scion felt like it was gonna flip, but it was fun as hell. Mine chewed up my front tires and my girl"s rear was flying around like tilt a whirl. Fun nonetheless, but do it with crummy tires.

Emergency brake on automatic ? Where is that are you talking about the parking brake ? Cause i driven standard all my life and know what it means on a standard but getting used to driving an automatic. But that does seem like fun, but i wont be able to find level flat surface it will get stuck somewhere on ice/snow and might damage the front.. to riskee after all as someone said why not drive a rental as if it was my own vehicle ? Well at the end of the day it sure is not my vehicle :dunno:. For that reason i do not let anyone borrow my car. :devil:
