Description

New tires! This is the best bang for your buck in Southern California. This is the new 2019 MX-5 Miata now with 30 more horsepower. Believe me, it makes all the difference. The car is light and nimble in LA traffic and easy to park when touring the most popular areas. Enjoy the thrill of Southern California’s greatest roads, whether top up or top down. I’m happy to make recommendations on the best driving roads and landmarks. The car has an exceptionally smooth manual transmission. Even if you are familiar with a manual but not highly experienced, this is a great car to drive. I do not recommend this car for drivers without manual transmission experience. Also, be aware that this car is very small. The only storage space is in the trunk and between the seat backs. The trunk can carry little more than a full sized carry on bag. But then, you're not renting this for it's cargo carrying capabilities...

US$60/trip

Post-trip cleaning

My guests deserve a clean car. If the car is not clean to your satisfaction, contact me at pick up. Charges for cleaning after drop-off: no charge for light dust or spots from car wash; $10 to vacuum; $15 for mud or sand; $20 for full wash

US$15/trip

Parking details

The car is parked in the back lot where the shuttle buses are parked.

Guidelines

Please be mindful that this is my personal vehicle. I prefer no food or drinks. I also recognize that we are all adults. Please return the vehicle in the same condition as received to avoid being charged a cleaning fee after the trip per Turo's cleaning policy that you can view with this link: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000808347-Cleaning-policy

Faqs

  • Do we need to meet to exchange keys?

    No, the car has Turo Go so you can pick up or drop off the car anytime within the duration of your rental. Just open the app, navigate to your trip with the MX-5 and you'll find the Turo Go controls. This will allow you to locate the vehicle and unlock it. Be aware that the location tool is accurate within half a city block so you may find the car on an adjacent street from where the pin is.

  • Where is the fuel door release?

    When the car is unlocked, you can press down on the fuel door and it will open.

  • Do I need to fill with Premium gas?

    Yes (mostly). Using a lower grade of fuel degrades performance as well as fuel economy in cars tuned for higher grades. I prefer that you use 91 octane since that is what the manufacturer recommends and that is what I put in the tank. If you use lower grade octane, then the next driver will experience reduced acceleration and increased fuel consumption. I would hate to diminish the next guest's experience.

  • Where is the trunk release?

    There is a button under the dash on the left side of the steering wheel.

This car is actually bigger than the older Miata and much more comfortable! It really is a pleasure to drive around LA with the top down :)

Unfortunately the rental didn’t work out due to tires being completely worn out. But Joshua was extremely professional and took care of the situation as best as he could. But it did cost me 3 hours of my evening and I missed out on the following morning canyon run

Joshua was an excellent host. He communicated quickly and clearly, and there were no issues whatsoever. His Miata is in great condition and was a blast to drive.
