Description

You are looking at one of the most tastefully customized Miatas out there! I have been a Mazda employee all my ownership so you know all care has been done properly. If you are looking for an unbeatably fun experience, this Miata will scratch itches that any Porsche or BMW enthusiast can appreciate. This particular miata is a Club model with custom red leather installed and has the most modest suspension spring kits on the market maintaining comfort while providing a clean road presence. You will find that the factory bicycle tires have been replaced with 8" wide front and 9" wide rear wheels with Bridgestone Potenza Summer tires to give unlimited grip. Now any Miata enthusiast can tell you this is not a drag racing car! However it can keep up with GTIs and Boxsters without issue and when on the track can keep up with six-figure sports cars. FULL DISCLOSURE: This Miata is running a tune with a performance header and muffler so it requires 93 minimum Octane gasoline and is louder than stock. VIDEO OF MIATA DRIVING Shot a couple of years ago back in NJ, however the setup is still the same and aesthetically and audibly should be the same. https://youtu.be/BNt7-9tjwxE

Guidelines

This is a fun car and expected to be enjoyed, however please respect the vehicle and obey all traffic laws. Do not do any burnouts, drifts or any track-related activities. Although a rental car to you, this is my personal vehicle and one I wish to keep for many years to come. NO SMOKING PLEASE 🚭 Any signs of smell and/or ash will result in up to a $150 cleaning fee! TAKE PHOTOS 📸 Please remember to take photos of the car before and after your trip, please take close up photos of common damage areas such as wheels, body trim and bumpers. If you do not and damage is found, it will be solely based on my photos taken. REPORT DAMAGES/ACCIDENTS 🚘 If you are involved in any sort of accident or incident that causes any sort of damage OR results in a police report, please immediately report to me. I will work with you to come to a fair resolution and may not even result in any charges. This is my personal car and I have a background in automotive so please do not try to hide anything, it will result in an uncomfortable experience for both of us upon discovery.

Faqs

  • How do I open/close the convertible top?

    There is a single latch located by the rearview mirror, press and hold the button then release the latch to unlock it. You may now fold the top back behind the seats and press down until it clicks. To close the top, pull the release handle between the seats by the windscreen and the top will pop up, please pull it shut and close the latch until it clicks.

  • Where is there an outlet/cigarette lighter socket?

    You may find this on the passenger side floor by where your left foot rests while sitting in the passenger seat. The outlet is located on the underside of the dash, fairly hidden. You may be required to get out of the car to reach under enough.

  • Can I park on the beach?

    While most beaches you visit you will likely park in a regular parking lot, some areas like the Sanibel Causeway offer beach parking. This is permitted so long as the path to the beach is flat and does not require any clearance greater than expected on pavement. PARKING IN LOOSE SAND OR WITHIN 5' TO WATER PROHIBITED.

  • Is it front or rear wheel drive?

    The miata is rear wheel drive and thus drives differently than traditional front drive platforms you may be used to. Take extra care in any loose conditions and be cautious while accelerating in any corners or turns.

  • How do I get in reverse?

    In the 2016 Miata, reverse is found by pushing the gear shifter straight down towards the floor then sliding into 1st Gear position.

  • How do I open the trunk?

    There are 3 ways to open the trunk on the Miata, with the key fob, with the interior button located by the driver left knee and the outside button secretly located underneath the trunk right above the license plate.

I travel a lot for business and this is only my second time renting via Turo. Matthew was incredible! I had a special drop off and pick up request that he honored with no hassle and made my stay incredible. 10/10 will be renting with him every trip to SW Florida!

Matthew was very responsive, friendly, and takes care of his car so well. It's extremely clean and is maintained excellently. His Miata is the best example of any I've driven and his tasteful modifications really make the experience of driving it even more fun- I loved the exhaust sound and it handles perfectly. The convertible top worked flawlessly and is one of the easiest possible designs to operate in just a few seconds. This is the best Turo option in the area and you should try it. I would definitely rent it again when I'm back in Ft. Myers/Cape Coral.

Matthew's response

Thank you Hunter and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I am the original owner and have always kept my mods tasteful without going too overkill, it has also always been maintained by my Mazda dealerships as I was a Mazda employee for 5 years. Would gladly host you again!
