Comment: I've been a Zipster for about a year and a half now and I've always been completely happy with my membership and their customer service. Though I don't own a car (nor do I want to own one) having one can be convenient at times. In SF I would rent a car when I wanted to take drives along the coast, or rent a truck when I needed to pick up some furniture. I only had to rent it for the amount of time I needed it, and insurance, gas, and parking are all included. Though I haven't used it as much while I've been in Chicago, Zipcar has remained convenient and available every time I've needed it. Occasionally I get an email update on new features, new cars added to my neighborhood and other bits of interest. A few weeks ago, they were giving away a copy of Gary Hirshberg's new book to the first person in each Zipcar city to respond to the newsletter, and I happened to be the quickest gun in Chicago. Gary is the CEO of Stonyfield Farm and is a very influential and successful man in the world of responsible and environmental business practices, as well as yummy organic yogurts.
