Not very happy to pay 90000 isk for a minor scratch. We had a photo of the car where the scratch is on, which was taken on the day we rented the car. I left the building feeling betrayed.

I was happy with the vehicle and service from Icerental4x4. One minor bug was the car being only 7/8 full of fuel and the agent not writing that down at vehicle issue. Luckily I had taken a photo showing the mileage of the vehicle and the fuel gauge level to show the agent at vehicle return as he was sceptical. Will rent from Icerental4x4 again.

This company was great, they took amazing care of us! When we got there, they only had the older Jimny (only 3 years older so not a big deal), and boy did they go above and beyond to make it right! The customer team was just lovely and so helpful. Pick up and drop off was a breeze and the airport shuttle was great.

The start was not much too good, we had to Wait at the airport almost an hour And after that the pickup took another hour. But from this beginning all was fine. The car was in good condition And served US perfectly.

It was more than enough for our trip, as it allowed us to go on every road we planned for.

Looking at the price and the availability due to late booking I was happy to get a payable car at all and I wasn't expecting too much. With over 238.000 km, the body, seats and transmission was in an acceptable condition, but the inside could have been better cleaned. The windshield was heavily covered with stoneblasts - driving against the sun was impossible due to scattered light. This is a major risk and life threatening - the windshield has to be replaced. The high fuel consumption was also a disappointment. Compared to the car we rented on 04/22 at another company it definitely looses due to the windshield.

The Jimmy was perfect for our adventures in Iceland. We were bless with good weather so the rooftop tent for us was the way to go.

Iceland was wonderful- this was our 3rd visit. The Suzuki car was ok. It was cheaper because it was older and rather high mileage, but it gave no trouble. The pop up tent on to was a big problem: the mattress and sheets were wet at one end. The seal on the lid was broken and it had rained hard. We could not use it at all. But by day 4, with no rain, it was somewhat drier. The rental team at the depot refused to listen, pronounced the kit dry and ok. Which it probably was by then. But we had to sleep in the car instead as it was not useable to us. So 3 out of 10 on that rental

We rented a Suzuki Jimny with manual gearbox and roof tent. No problems with the car, it was clean and in working order. Unfortunately the tent was very dirty, inside there were cigarette burn marks, and a lot of mold. We had to clean the tent completely before we could use it, it was not hygienic.

We booked a 2018 Suzuki Jimny, but got one from 2001. When we afsked about it at pick up, the staff said this was one of the last cars built in 2018 before the model got a redesign. However, the vin number clearly showed the car was from 2001, which made it a very poor driving experience. So, use Icerental 4X4 if you want an old beat-up car. This was the major problem among many smaller problems with the car and roof tent, such as a shaking steering wheel and a moldy mattress.

Not at all..this big, heavy and expensive american car needs tons of gasoline, had bad brakes and is slow when you try to start driving. The heating system is very strange too....but the worst thing was that we hat twice wheels with a hole in it. We had to call the macanic twice, thow I didnt drive on bad F roads. Glad I could call the ADAC from Germany to get fast help....the broken tire I had to pay for my selfself. In addition we waited at the airport to be taken to the office, but the driver wasnt there on time, so I had to call him and we waited for another 30min. To sum up...that was a very expensive and annoying holiday with that car. The Island was great!

The Suzuki Jimny is a good vehicle to explore Iceland, it does well on un-paved roads and it’s sturdy and solid. It doesn’t go very fast but it’s not a big issue in Iceland. The main issue was with the roof tent when it rains the mattress inside gets a bit wet. All in all it’s a great vehicle to explore Iceland.

We did receive an older model of the car than we had booked. However, we realised this too late and found not turn back. The car was OK. The camping gear rent together with the car was of very low quality. Definitely recommend to rent that somewhere else.

Island ist immer für Abenteuer gut. Der Wagen wurde an Tag 2 getauscht, weil die Handbremse versagte. bei Auto 2 lösten sich am Tag 4 die Radmuttern hi re und 2 Radbolzen brachen dabei ab. Eine Notfallwerkstatt konnte am Sa Nachm notdürftig die beiden fehlenden ersetzen. Am Mo dann Tausch aller 5 Radmuttern. Das Auto hat uns dann um die ganze Insel gebracht.

It was terrible, I’ve never drove a vehicle that dangerous. The steering-wheel was shaking, it was almost impossible the go straight. I am extremely disappointed with this renting, it was literally exhausting to drive. Very bad braking. In addition to that we would have like that the stairs was attachable outside, because when it’s raining your wet stairs go onto the mattress.

It is a very nice and good car for these road conditions on Iceland. It is a very nice idea to meet this car with a roof tent. We booked this car online and it was so easy. Very kindly shuttle service and the handover of the vehicle was easy We will book again via northbound or Icerental 4x4.

cannot give a comparison to other companies. My expectations may have been too high. But for me the vehicle was too expensive by its standards. But I don't know at milage Display from 384000km what to expect. Stone chips in the windshield, engine warning Wiper system not properly. Unlocking and locking not properly. But it drove us where we wanted too.
