I have been on both sides of this one and know the issues well.
Thanks for your quick response.
I drive a Honda Accord. Cars don't mean too much to me.
Parking, tolls, etc.. would be covered by the company. I don't think gas is covered.
I just personally feel if a company does not provide a company owned car, then they should reimburse the rep as if they WERE driving a company owned car meaning a few hundred dollars per month for vehicle usage IN ADDITION to the .585 per mile rate.
Perhaps, I am a bit naive?
