Chris is AWESOME!! He is super nice, prompt, and incredibly flexible. In fact, he adjusted his schedule and freed up dates that he had marked as unavailable so that I could use the car for the week. After I dropped off his car he discovered that I had left my CDs and offered to mail them to me even though I live in the city center.
I rented his car for a week and drove the rest of my belongings back to Seattle from Oregon. I was shocked how much I could pack into the vehicle! It looks small, but don't let it deceive you. I got my guitar, skiis, snowboard, and boxes and boxes of my belongings packed in. Even though it was fully packed from top to bottom the car still got great gas mileage.
I cannot say enough good things about Chris and his Toyota Matrix--awesome gas mileage, lots of room, CD player, adapter to plug-in your iPod, plenty of visibility, clean, and fully functioning. You'll be happy you rented from him.
