Cars Nowlimited....

Another business jumping on the bandwagon. Like we don't predict this will not happen. Cars Unlimited, Inc. will soon bid the car rental business adieu. According to the owners business has been so slow and it couldn't keep up to the changing time. Hence, at least eight of their cars are now up for grabs for $1,500 to $1,600 each.

I'm sure you can still haggle with them. Cars have not been well-maintained either anyway. Long time residents recalled that Cars Unlimited used to be the number one car rental business until other car rental businesses joined in to cater to the once booming tourism industry on the island.

Cars Unlimited began its Saipan operations in October 2001. At that time, the company only had five cars available for rent. Before that year ended, Markos brought in another five cars to add to Cars Unlimited's fleet.

In 2005, the company had 22 cars available for rent to both tourists and residents.

Reports said the car rental business actually branched out from Guam, where Cars Unlimited has been operating for the past 15 years. On Guam, the company has a fleet of about 154 cars (2005 records).

Doubt if Cars Unlimited will be missed... most of the cars were junkers with bad brakes. I had to return a few. One overheated 4 miles down the road due to to lack of water/anticoolant in the radiator. Fried the engine!

I've rented "used" cars from Rent-a-wreck in the states, but Cars Unlimited truly should own that name. My CU rental had the service engine soon light on the entire time I had it... was anyone concerned? Nope-- just call us if it dies. An amazingly unique business. No way would I buy one of their cars.
