Description

This is as close to a Mercedes Benz go-kart as it's gonna get. Be sure to use the paddle shifters to smoke that tech-geek hipster's Prius off the stop light. The AUX plug is in the glove box. Oh, and it has a CD player (what's that?!?). Explore the city like they did in Jurassic World. The huge panoramic sun roof lets you get a great view of your surroundings! This rear-wheel drive go-kart gets 34 city / 38 hwy miles per gallon, so feel free to mash it, just a little. But, premium gasoline only por favor. Due to safety concerns, the key is located in the lockbox. Please return it there after your rental locked. I love all my cars and like to keep them in great condition, please help me do so! There are many car wash places around the area, so please take it there if you get the car dirty (inside or out). Don't get charged the $100 cleaning fee! You can laugh manically at the other tourists attempting in vain to park their gigantic SUVs and lifted pick up trucks, while sliding this smart car into any parking space. Don't be a newb, explore the city like a boss! Oh, and don't curb my rims! No smoking or pets please!

We had issues with the battery (unlucky timing, the car worked fine) but Irene was very responsive and apologetic when trying to fix it.

I always have the best time with this little gem. Second trip! Irene is great and reliable!! I will definitely book again.

Interesting experience. The car itself was fun to drive and I’m giving it a 5 star. But keep in mind that you probably can’t connect your iPhone to it’s media system and it does not have cruise control, so it will tire you on a long distance drive.

She couldn’t understand a simple question in regards to where exactly the car has a port to connect my phone charger to. After hours of confusion on her end with no answers and rude responses, I just went ahead and bought a lighter charger extension to get on the road. When I got home, I explained to her that her car was not vacuumed from the start. Her profile claims you need to clean it inside and out to avoid a $100 cleaning charge (maybe she tries to find ways to tack on extra charges with her filthy car if people don’t fall for her bully like communication to clean her mess or messes others make that she charges for). I’ve been with Turo for years and never have I had as rude of a host as she is. I’ve never give a bad review before either. When I told her I was on my way to drop the car off and told her to stop messaging me so I wasn’t late and didn’t have to pull over to respond, she wouldn’t abide by this when I asked her to stop messaging me 5 different times. She has power struggle issues (wants the last word while insulting you) and doesn’t like to be bothered with simple questions on a Friday evening (first day of rental) that are hard for her to understand. She was condescending and thought I needed to figure out how to charge my phone with any charger in general (something anyone knows already). It was super awkward and weird for sure. She finally admitted she never drives the car, after hours of asking her how she personally charges her phone in her Smart Fortwo car. When I explained to her I was visiting family after being deathly ill, she responded with zero empathy and replied “so that’s what’s going on”. I’ve never had this type of experience before with any host and highly don’t recommend her. If you do take a chance with her, take lots of pictures at the start to avoid cleaning up her messy car or being charged for it! That’s what I did.

Irene was great! The car was great and my trip was great thanks to her! If any couple is coming to San Francisco be sure to hit her up. Car is a gas saver and helpful with parking. Enjoy!
