    Car certainly was not new. A lot of wear and tear inside the cabin was evident.

    予約していた車と別の車だったけど、同じような車だったので気にはならなかった。 元々車の傷が多いのが気になった。 お店が一方通行の道もあって注意が必要と思った。

    Car was a little old with stained seats but over all for its age it drove and ran well. Glad we had a economical car with the price of petrol in NZ.
