Rental Car Review: Dodge Similar!

Artist's Concept for the new Dodge SIMILAR!

A few weeks ago, I went online and rented a car for our holiday season travels. While I was looking at Econo-Boxes, (cheap implements of non-mass transportation,) and Appliances-With-Four-Wheels-For-Cheap, believe it or not the best deal I found was for a "Dodge Charger or Similar!"  Personally, I was really hoping to get the Challenger, because I did a LOT of Googling but couldn't find out ANYTHING about the Dodge Similar. Maybe the Similar is an import? Perhaps the Dodge Similar is a Canadian import! Was the online ad a typo, and I was going to get a Dodge "Scimitar?" A car named the SCIMITAR would make a pretty catchy name, so I can't imagine why the people at Dodge/Chrysler/FIAT/Stellantis would name a car Similar instead of Scimitar. Scimitar is snappy, and better than the Dodge Bowie Knife, Chrysler Swiss Folding Knife, and the Fiat Serrated Bread Knife.

Over the years I've rented a few cars, and usually just drove whatever is the cheapest thing that will get the job done. There's been plenty of Hyundai, Toyota, Nissan, and other normal cars. A few times I've even splurged for a Ford Mustang, like in HAWAII or for a wedding anniversary, but I have a warning about this. Once I rented a convertible Mustang for a fun anniversary dinner in Washington DC, and well, it kinda made me want to BUY ONE! So, I did, a new 2004 Mustang GT 40th Anniversary convertible. That car was fun, lasted just fine, and even survived a tornado, but the take-away is that you should be careful what you rent, because then you might want to buy one!

So, back to the Dodge Similar. I still don't know what it is, because we had to change our travel plans and cancel that trip. If anyone out there rents a "Similar," please let me know how you like it!
