    What's everyone's long term outlook for Zipcar (CAR)? I'm split on whether its a really good business model or a really bad one.

    • Iron Hamster: My personal opinion... CAR's business model only works in large cities. Very limited, and easily replicated by CAR if it chooses.

    • Vash Patel: Iron Hamster, I think most similar businesses only work in big cities. Car rental in small towns brings in little revenue for the franchise.

    • Russell Gold: Warren Buffet, didn't he buy a rental car company? ... Less and less people driving in the cities, only renting when they need to leave town

    • James Sands: Zipcar is growing steadily. They will expand more in Europe over time, maybe even Asia. Patience will be rewarded.
