Just wanted to follow up on this, as we did have some difficulties with the car, but Alamo handled it professionally.

The trip was to St Louis and Branson, and the first day after picking up the car, we drove the 4-hours to Branson. Along the way the cruise control quit, the service light came on and the theft system light came on. Once we got to Branson, we called the service number and they arranged for an exchange in Springfield which added another 1 1/2 hours of drive time to the day. On the way to Springfield the dash guages stopped working, so I drove the last 20 miles with no spedometer! I've never had so many problems with a rental car before, and the thing only had 6,000 miles on it. :)

We were able to return the car empty, after almost 6 hours of driving it, basically draining the tank, and got upgraded to a midsize for all the added trouble. So my compensation was the upgrade and a free tank of gas.

The rest of the trip in the other car went off without a hitch.
