Costa Rica - any favorite Car Rental agencies?

Does anyone have any particularly favorite car rental places....not a lot of hassle and friendly? I've rented before and was just wondering before I book. Thanks!

Tricolor has been very good for us both times. Their email rates are cheaper than what you get over the phone.

We have rented from Colones Auto Rental and got good rates, good cars. Easy to work with. They charged us exactly what we agreed on. I say that cause I have heard horror stories of what some people get charged. The contracts were in English so I knew what I was signing. They met us at the airport and we dropped the car off there at the end.

Steer clear of Thrifty. We rented for 10 days this month (March 2009). Nowhere in the emails did it tell us we had to purchase liability insurance for $19.95 per day. We purchased the extra Amex Premium Ins, but they say it's the law to have their special liability insurance, and they'd call a taxi to take us back to the airport if we refused it(we took their shuttle to Thrifty). No one in the long line was prepared for the extra $20/day either.
In Jaco, we found out that others, like Avis, charged $12/day.
Just FYI.

We rented from Mapache in Feb and were very happy. In addition to their professional, courteous & punctual service, we found an automatic transmission car which many of the other companies didn't offer unless you went for a full-size large SUV.
