    I rented a 500 for a week in San Diego. It was fun taking it through mountain passes to Tecate, California where I parked and walked into Mexico. I liked the car so much I know drive a 5 speed 500C which I bought in VA and drove home to NH

    Which rental companies carry FIAT 500 Convertibles in the USA? I found that Avis rents them only in Canada.

    • Dan MacDonald

      Sixt says they rent them in the US but I have not found them in any of my attempts so far.

    So, what rental companies have them?

  • Dr. Anne Steiner

    I wish car companies rented them as they’re near impossible to find as a rental. They are the perfect Northern CA car.
