Description

Attention: This car is a manual transmission! Mathilda is the best kept and best maintained Mazdaspeed 3 in all of Oregon! And yes, she's a stick shift! She has beautiful crystal pearl white mica exterior with soft suede leather seats and red high-contrast stitching as part of the Mazdaspeed GT package all of which have been immaculately maintained over the years. This car is my baby, and she is a fine lady - please treat her as such! That being said, she is also super fun and sporty to drive. The mazdaspeed 3 consistently came out on top of car and drivers "hot hatch" tests. With sport tuned suspension and steering, and a 263 horsepower turbocharged engine she's a force to be reckoned with. (Do be careful however as that torque steer can be pretty strong in 3rd gear). However, even with all of that power, Mathilda is still very fuel efficient! She will get you an an estimated 25 MPG, 30 if you're nice. She is also fully safety equipped with 4-wheel ABS, traction control, and airbags for all. She also has a full complement of tech accessories, a premium bose sound system, as well as an aux port for your phone/iPod so you can rock out to your favorite tunes while exploring the world. Note: This car is a manual stick shift. Make sure you're an expert at stick before renting. Please don't burn out the clutch! 😩

Parking details

Mathilda the Mazdaspeed will be parked at her lot at 1550 NW Kearney St. If you're coming from Portland International Airport (PDX) Downtown Portland is also easy to access. Either grab an Uber/Lyft or hop on the red line MAX ($2.50) and get off at either the downtown Chinatown stop and walk, or the Galleria/SW 10th Ave Max Station and transfer to either the NS Line or the A-loop of the street car (same ticket). Then exit at NW 10th and Johnson street and walk the 5 blocks to the lot.

Guidelines

* Keys: Always stay locked inside Mathilda. She is remotely unlocked/locked and the start/end of the trip. Makes sharing super easy for everyone! * Pets: Pets may be considered if asked ahead of time so that a seat cover can be provided. Damage and excess fur may result in additional cleaning/damage charges at end of trip. * Smoking: Not allowed ever in Turo cars. Neither tobacco or electronic. You will get charged a $250 cleaning fee if evidence of smoking is found. * Fuel: Mathilda will always be full of gas at the start of your trip. Please refuel when done to avoid additional charges and a $10 fueling fee. This car requires 92 octane. * Driving: Please be extra careful when driving around. Mathilda is very low to the ground and Portland has many high curbs. Please be careful with her front end!

Samuel was very professional and accommodating for me on very short notice. I truly appreciate his communication and kindness throughout. I would recommend renting his cars to anyone visiting Oregon. The Mazdaspeed3 was very clean, maintained well, had accessories for phone and audio already in it and easy to pick up. His remote unlock system made it safe during this pandemic. Thank You Samuel.
