I haven't used Zipcar before, but I know people who have used it at my undergrad institution in Los Angeles. Most people who have used it say that it's pretty convenient since the cars were located right on campus. It's great for short trips - e.g. going grocery shopping, running other errands, but if you need the car for the whole day or want to drive out of the city, it's not the best option because they charge by the hour and have a mileage limit. If you're under 25 though and need to rent a car, Zipcar would be best because most car rental companies impose a daily surcharge for drivers under 25.
Edit: They also have a daily rate, but it is much more expensive (more than $60) than regular car rental companies ($25 + taxes and fees).
