    thats a bit different then. its just cheaper getting flight, doing an FD as im sure your aware glad you must be happy with the cost, ive never ever been able to get a good VH deal. always getting everything separately myself is way cheaper

    Oddly enough Keith, Dollar didn`t have any Chargers in their MCO outlet this time so we went for a Chevy Impala.
    I also noticed that when over there I saw very few Chargers on the road which makes me wonder if they have stopped making them.

    Performance & sizewise it was on a par, if anything the boot seemed a tad larger.
    It didn`t have that "aggressive" look of the Charger though!

    Ya'll are funny about those Chargers! LOL. Impalas are nice cars too. I like them better than Chargers, but that's mostly because I've not ever been a fan of Dodge.

    They definitely have NOT stopped making the Charger. They have redesigned it slightly but not really enough to make a difference. From time to time the rental car companies switch who they are getting their cars from. I think the Impala is slightly larger than the Charger though.

    I'm not sure, but I think Dollar have been moving away from Dodge because they were too expensive.

    We always had a Grand Cherokee but were told the time before last that they don't have them anymore as they were going with a different supplier Now whether this is true I don't know

    Thanks for that John.
    It was odd though as we seldom saw any Chargers on the roads over there, whereas last year it seemed as though every other car was a Charger!

    I think it comes down to how many people you have in your party and how much you want to pay.If you are just going to the resort, where it will sit for the entire trip then why pay for more. However, if you are going to utilize it more often then I would go with something comfortable for your party.
