I have been using Modo car rental for a while and once I have made out station 2 day trip to place close to the home town. I have booked kia sedona 7 seater van for my family and friends.
We faced lot of problems with the vehicle,
it was vibrating, wobbling and shaking a lot during the travel and there was burning smell too. it made us to stop every 10/15 min during the travel.
we called up Modo customer care and told the entire story. they provided some technical solution to change the gears but that didnt worked.
we asked for repairing, replacement/exchanging the vehicle, for which Modo did not agree. The Modo customer care repeatedly told us that they will give us call back which they never did.
we also taken it to car repair center for checkup and he mentioned that Modo has done some repair work recently which was not done properly and causing to
loose front wheel disk alignment problems which is causing the vehicle to wobble and shake during the downhill travel. His remark was not to travel with
the vehicle at all and its going to cause serious problems and may cause accident and you are running under very serious risk.
It was very bad experience from Modo and the customer care department which did not co-operated properly and taken prompt action as expected while
some one is travelling with entire family. Modo must change its out station policy and take due care of its customers.
