2Feira de Santana probably would be the closest agency. Great opportunity to load up the car with crap from the Feira do Paraguai.
Just remember R$1,00 per kilometre surcharge on top of the rental costs if you return the car anywhere else than from where you rented it. So of if you are heading on to Rio or SP, that's going to be a very expensive trip.

3The chapada is a place where a car actually makes sense. I have been there but can offer no advice on rentals. I remember there was very light traffic, so the driving should be easy. We met some local tourists who did the area in their own vehicles and seemed to have a great time.
In case you can't find reliable information on rentals near the chapada, there always is the option of driving from the airport at Salvador da Bahia. Shouldn't take more than 3-4 hours and there are some possible stops on the route, to make the trip worthwhile.

Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
