Re: seven days no rental car just taxis [Re: GaKaye]

I haven't been to orient in about six years. I've always rented cars. My problem is that my back does not let easily move a manual seat. It seems like a minor matter. I checked with three of the rental sponsors and with Jim Ruos, the cars they all rent have auto transmission, but little else. The $500.00 is for a Chrysler 300 or a large SUV, neither are practical but that is the cost, its not a typo. We are going to rent the standard white little car and live with the extra pain. We have two much to see on the island to limit our trip by some many taxis, even if it cost about the same.

Thanks, for everyones help.

Norm

Good luck parking that Chrysler anywhere on the island.

I think I'm being Captain Obvious here but Why not have the seat be set where ever you want it when you pick it up? I can't remember the last time I actually moved my seat after day 1...

Agreed, Captain Obvious. I don't understand it either.

Perhaps he is a larger man and needs the seat to the rearward position to gain entry but needs to slide it forward to his driving position and back or other conditions make it difficult to do so. When I had a pinched nerve in my back it was very uncomfortable to enter or leave my car with the seat in my normal position but it was equally painful to reach and move the seat manually once in place.
