WK2 Hire Cars in NY, USA
We are traveling to New York for Xmas and New Year from Australia, and wish to hire a WK2 4WD for our stay.

Can any one recommend a hire-car firm that has them at a resonable price, had one last year in Seattle from Alamo, but having trouble finding one on the East Coast.

I've seen WK2's at Hertz, but no idea if you can get 4x4.

I have seen Enterprise Rent-a-car renting WK2's as well. They were basic Laredo 4x4 (QT1) models. I tried to rent it once last year but it was not available at the location I was renting from... so ended up getting a Chevy Traverse instead.

Yes, the Enterprise here in Yonkers had them. Not sure if the still do. However they were base Laredos, nothing fancy.

I assume you are flying into JFk. The rental locations there are huge. I would start by calling them ASAP and reserve one. But don't be to surprised if the subsitute with another brand of SUV.

Go with Enterprise. They normally have any car you want (with in reason) and they always have the best up keep and the newest cars. My rental WK2 only had 2K miles on it when I had it.

I agree with Enterprise. Their rates are very good too, but they do run the mileage up higher than other car rental companies before selling them off. Car may not be the cleanest, but they are very good on switching cars if you are not satisfied with original vehicle(s). They also will deliver the car and paperwork to you.

Re: WK2 Hire Cars in NY, USA
Just one more thing to add, I'm not sure which rental companies still do this but just want you do know, some charge you more for crossing state lines. It's a hidden extra charge, so if I were you, ask about it when you rent the WK2. Actually, it may not be hidden, but I had a buddy get charged for it years ago.
