Why Buy a Car at Hertz?

Hertz sells its old rental fleet vehicles at competitive prices below Kelley Blue Book value, according to the Hertz website

Hertz rental vehicles receive regular, routine maintenance and the company certifies these used cars are mechanically sound for sale through extensive checks, the website said


What Kind of Cars Can You Get From Hertz?

Hertz makes shopping for a car online easy by dividing its used cars into these categories:

  • Used cars under $15,000
  • Used cars under $20,000
  • SUVs
  • Fuel-efficient used cars
  • Luxury cars for sales

Browsing the luxury cars for sale, we found everything from Infiniti SUVs to BMW X5 sports activity vehicles. Most vehicles in the luxury category had around 50,000 miles on them, and most were available for under $30,000. Non-luxury vehicles were even cheaper.
