We hired a car from Stevens car hire Larnaca, we have hired many cars in the past but never have had such an old, poorly maintained car such as we were given. The brakes were soft, the car smelt musty, and there was no power.

We complained only to be told the car was only 3 years old, what a joke!

He exchanged the car for another, this time smaller car, it was better but not much better. The handbrake had to be pulled up to the top notch, the gear stick was very sloppy. Again it was an old car.

Don't be fooled by the good prices it's not worth it.

We have been recommended this company by someone else who used them so quite alarmed to hear this.

Disturbing comment as I always use Stevens Car Rentals and have always been happy to recommend them. Always had a new car with first class service. Indeed this year we unfortunately had a flat battery (our fault). We rang the office in Larnaca and within half an hour we had a local engineer come to fix it. Will be using them again later in the year but would be interested to hear if anyone else has had poor service.

We have just returned. We hired the car on 2nd July 2011. and returned it on Saturday 9th July. The service was good, the cars were diabolical. We thought it must of been a scam by one of their employees until we phoned the office to complain. I can't believe cars such as these are legally hired out to unsuspecting tourists.

7. Re: Car Hire

We too hired from Stevens car hire after this company was recommended prior to our visit in June. I emailed Stevens to obtain assurances that their hire cars were well maintained and from a modern fleet. The reply I received was reassuring so booked 11 days car hire.

Nothing could have prepared us for the extremely poorly maintained cars that were seemingly considered acceptable by this company and the inconvenience that ensued.

Our car was collected on arrival at larnaca airport in the early hours. What a shabby example it was too! This car was subsequently returned the following day as the air con was poor and the steering was defective. The replacement Ford focus car was no better and that too was subsequently reported for a number of defects and for being totally unsafe to drive. The owner failed to accept any comments, opinions or advice regarding the unacceptable condition of his cars and was extremely rude and obnoxious. As a highly qualified automotive engineer I was experienced enough to make judgement on a subject that I specialised in. I was subjected to verbal abuse in front of my family on collection of the last car and was offered a partial refund for which I contested. Not only did I pay for car hire but 80 euros of fuel too, all we drove was 70 kms and Stevens had the audacity to say we had not been inconvenienced.

As my payment was made via credit card I was able to recover my losses back via my credit card provider.

Another car hire company who fall short of providing decent, road worthy and reliable cars is Champion car hire.

My advice is steer clear of both the car hire companies listed. If you value your life and that of your family then book car hire with a reputable and well known car hire company. If things go pear shaped then at least you have some protection.
