Description

Unique way to get around! Very easy to park and gets great gas mileage. Drive around town or take it on the highway the smart car can take you anywhere in fun and style. It is very roomy on the inside, I'm 6"1 and I still have 4 inches of headroom left. This is a no-frills car made so you can enjoy driving! No distractions just you and the open road. It also has an optional manual shift feature if you like to shift your own gears! Toll pass included. I usually tally up the tolls about 2 weeks after the trip is over and ask for reimbursement then. Strictly no smoking in the car or pets, you will be charged a cleaning fee if you smoke in the car.

Abuzar was kind and gracious. I returned the rental the rental 30 minutes late. I’d list this as a C-level rental and rate 4 stars in that category due to age and quality. It isn’t the worst car but not the best either. Will do it’s job to get you to where you need to be. It’s a bare minimum ‘08’ so we had to remind ourselves a 100 times. Pros: Phenomenal on gas. Small compact size so you can park anywhere. Car smells nice. Included an Aux cord but for phones with out headphone jack...needs an adapter. Cons: The keys are pretty faded so it’s hard to know which button locks the car. A few nights I had to leave the car unlocked because it would not lock. Trunk space was unvacuumed. (Abuzar apologized) Hard to turn. (Maybe a power steering issue) You have to push the brakes pretty hard to get a response. Pros/Cons: Ive never driven a smart car so i wasn’t sure what to categorize this section. The car drives like a manual even though it’s an automatic, you feel it change each gear, which is difficult and it takes a little while to gain speed (65mph). It’s pretty loud inside but that could be because you’re practically sitting on top the engine. The car over all is okay. It was just the brakes and the turning that were the biggest complaints for me.

Abuzar's response

Thank you for your input! I strive to make sure the cars are in the best shape for our customers. I’ll make sure I check the remote in the battery plus the turning and the brakes. Just for my other customers the car has no problem reaching 80 or even 90 mph on the highway. You just need to press the accelerator harder to make sure it shifts down into a lower gear and then the car takes off!

Everything was going OK at first. Keep in mind this is a small car. The owner of the car has rewired the horn and it’s under the dashboard. I tried to honk the horn two or three times because there was a larger vehicle coming out at me and I could not reach the horn in time and our bodies are not trained to reach under a dashboard to honk the horn when typically the horn is on the steering wheel. This one has been rewired. I had to report the car because I felt that it is unsafe and because of the size of the car it could possibly kill somebody if they get in an accident. If you can’t honk the horn to warn a bigger car coming at you, then a collision in this car could be deadly. I tried very hard to remember where the horn was placed and my reflexes just didn’t ever reach there quick enough to honk. I do not recommend this car until it gets fixed correctly. Abuzar sort of threatened me about giving him a bad review. He said it goes both ways. I was told that I could’ve had the car towed by Turo, however I decided to be nice and let him come pick up the car instead. I wish now that I would have just had it towed so I could’ve avoided an interaction with the car owner. So my advice is to please report any safety issues with his vehicles as he apparently has more than just one. With a car like this it could be a life or death matter.

Abuzar's response

Whenever a car comes with an issue I make sure it is taken care of on time and I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone renting my car, everyone is always super cooperative, which is why I have made some good friends on Turo who recurrently rent my vehicles. Mary didnt tell me about the issue on the car, drove it for over 150mi and then decided to report it to turo. I didnt threaten her even once. She was extremely rude when I went to pickup the car. Deeply regret letting her rent it!
