National/Alamo tend to have the following as "full size"

2. Impala (good amount of these)
3. Corrolla (yes folks LOL!)
4. JW Jettas
Their website classifies the Corolla as a mid-sized. We have a full-sized car reserved for April. I own a Corolla and won't accept that as a full-sized car. I'd be happy to take a mini van even though I have lots mileage on me!

Not having rented a car in a lot of years I can't see these four cars all being in the same category. Logically Corolla and Jetta are about the same size, Malibu a bit larger, then Impala.

I would NEVER accept a Corolla or Jetta as full size.

Sorry I meant to say Camry. Got my Toyotas confused LOL!

(And the new Camry is just a sad car IMHO reminds me more of a Corolla which is why I got confused I think)

I did some digging. Other options

Hyundia Sonata
VW Passat MAY be a full size. Classification seems to vary based on "features" Stripped it's a full size, with the cool features it's a level up

WE just returned Friday and had a weekly rental from National at the car care center. We reserved a mid-size and they gave us a choice of a VW Passat (full size) or a Nissan Altima. We took the Passat for gas mileage as we had to put on 200 miles on this trip. Nice drive and the receipt says it was a full size.
