We rented a Chevvy Suburban from Enterprise in North Hollywood/Van Nuys LA in the summer. TBH, after a day I had had enough of it and returned it for a Nissan Sentra that they don't sell in Europe as it was 1/4 of the daily rate and the Suburban was surprisingly boring and cheap and nasty. You start to realise why the USA has hardly any domestic cars, they all seem Hyundai, Kia, Nissan etc... I agree with the OP that LA is generally a ***'hole - decades of socialism - San Francisco too. Avoid!
