You're welcome. Weekend rentals are an excellent idea. Just make sure that you don't let the car sit in the drive way too long. You want to consider the rental as an extended test drive which gives you plenty of time to learn your likes and dislikes about the vehicles handling and feel, how easy it is to operate the equipment while driving and of course blind spots. My wife has a friend who is about 5'2" who bought a BMW 5 Series. We've lost count of the number of dings she put n the body and repaired while backing into the garage because she is too short to see clearly and she doesn't know how to backup using only the mirrors which at my height of nearly 6' I find just as challenging. By the way it's this same friend of my wife's that is the reason I couldn't get a BMW if I wanted to, my wife hates the BMW's drink holders and rear window view when parking.
