After getting the vehicle, she stopped off at a nearby Walmart to shop, before returning to the parking lot, hopping in a black auto and driving home.
The saga began in late June when a woman rented a black Nissan Sentra from Enterprise Rent-A-Car company in Cornwall, Ont., about an hour west of Montreal. After shopping, she hopped in a auto she thought was hers, started it up and drove away.
After 2 weeks, she came back to Enterprise return the vehicle, and she made sure she complained to the manager about giving her a dirty, obviously used auto.
Both vehicles used a keyless entry remote, similar to this one.
Both cars use a key fob, which doesn't require a key to start the vehicle.
The woman then proceeded to drive the vehicle around for a full two weeks, using the Infiniti for her regular activities.
The Walmart was just a short drive from the auto rental agency.
"She drove around and did her daily business in this stolen vehicle for two weeks", MacKay said.

And it wasn't until this past weekend when the woman returned the vehicle to the same auto rental company that the manager pieced the entire situation together and realized what had happened.
The keys she turned in belonged to a Nissan Infiniti rather than a Sentra, leaving the manager "slightly confused", said police.
The woman drove the vehicle around for two weeks, then tried to return it to the rental auto company, police say.
At first, he tried to tell her that the company didn't even rent that model - but she was having none of it.
It took the manager of the branch driving her to the Walmart parking lot where her rental sat for her to see the accidental thief. She informed the manager that she wasn't entirely happy with the vehicle.
And that's not even where the story ends. She also said there were papers in the glove compartment and a dirty ashtray, but it still wasn't enough to tip her off.
"Once inside, the woman spoke to the manager and commented about how unkept the inside of the vehicle was and the fact that there was a set of golf clubs in it as well", reads a Facebook post from the Cornwall police explaining the mixup. Constable Tommy MacKay who dealt with the incident said the man who owned the stolen Infiniti had a good laugh about it and the woman who stole it was embarrassed.
