The company offers to settle more cases

Hertz has extended an olive branch to more aggrieved customers who have accused the company of arrests for wrongful theft of cars they legally rented.

The Estero-based company has confirmed that it has made a second round of settlement offers.

About a month ago, Hertz said it had sent out a first wave of offers to about three dozen renters “who had a negative experience.”

Another 20 offers were sent out Thursday, said Jonathan Stern, senior director of external communications at Hertz, speaking exclusively to The (Fort Myers) News-Press, part of the USA TODAY Network.

This brings the total number of proposed settlements to around 60, but there are likely more to come as the company continues to review hundreds of claims one by one.
