Renting a car that was financed by the bank

Q: I have a question regarding riba. I live in Germany and I want to rent a car for 12 months. My understanding is that all rental companies do not own the car, but they finance it from banks based on interest. As such, is it halal for me to rent cars?

A: If you are sure that they are involved in haraam then abstain.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
