For your trip: a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0i Premium.
Gold Unicorn is proud to host this versatile automobile.
We love all our cars- this is "Appleseed".
Appleseed is funky, but handsome & practical.
Whether you are touring the PDX metro area, just need to move some furniture, or are headed on a massive hiking/camping expedition, the Crosstrek would make a great choice for your trip.
The $15 post trip cleaning extra is HIGHLY recommended if you get no other extras! Turo Hosts do not have their own drive-thru car washes and employees like Rent-a-Car does, but you can choose this and we'll do it for you.
Gold Unicorn is a full-service car rental company (without all the BS), and I keep my cars in stellar condition. That's right- any trail muck will be removed from this Crosstrek for you to paint some back on! However, you don't have to be going on an adventure or even outside of urban Portland for the Crosstrek to make sense. It eats up potholes, and has plenty of space for five travelers with luggage. It gets excellent gas mileage, and with a smooth CVT transmission is super peppy around town and on the highway. If you've never been to the PNW, trust me- you won't be the only Crosstrek on the road. And probably not the only one on the block. An instant smash hit for Subaru, the Crosstrek is a modern PDX Classic for a very good reason.
In addition to the overall practicality and AWD, the Subaru Crosstrek has many included features. The seats are heated. The voice-activated sound system will pair reliably to your smartphone or bluetooth device for navigation or Spotify. There are several useful driver assists such as cruise control and a back-up camera. The rear seats easily fold down flat for more storage. A compass is embedded in the rear view mirror.
If you have more gear, we can accommodate. This Crosstrek has a trailer hitch with a towing capacity of 1,500lbs. In addition, a roof rack is included with available optional accessories that are $20 for the trip- for bikes, skis, snowboards, or extra storage.

A final word: please take care of your Subaru Crosstrek. Wear from normal use is understandable, but abuse is not cool. Gold Unicorn staff is well-versed on the ins and outs of this Subie, “Appleseed” and we will be happy to answer any questions or concerns pertaining to before, during and after your trip.
I HIGHLY recommend the $10 cleaning extra! It's a good deal to not have to worry about it, and I keep all kinds of detailing gear. If you'd prefer to DIY, self-service car washes are the next best thing, and there are many in the Portland area. If the car is left significantly dirty or messy without the $10 cleaning option, a $15 charge may be incurred.
For gasoline, please remember to top off the tank as will be documented by the Turo app at the end of your trip. With a reasonable grace allowance, I charge "gas and a half" to cover time and Turo's reimbursement fee if the tank is not full. For example - if the tank is 3/4 full and it costs $20 to fill, you will be charged $30. So please remember to do this :)
