Description

Get $25 off your first rental! https://turo.com/c/dakotab152 Code must be used in the account setup process. UPDATE: I will be moving across the country in Mid-March and unfortunately will not be able to provide the vehicle in Phoenix at that time until we are relocated. Thank you for your understanding! For those looking to row their own gears and zip around in a fuel-efficient vehicle. The Mazda 3 handles very well, will get you where you need to go and averages 35 MPG with mixed driving. For being a "compact" this has lots of leg room in both the front and back. Will come with a phone mount, charging cable, and audio cable. Let me know if you need additional cables. Everything works as expected and I have not had any issues with the car as my personal vehicle in the last year and a half of ownership. I have very flexible pick-up drop-off times as I am taking classes online and doing other gig economy job. So let me know what works best for you. Play around with the hours as I have good flexibility and try to keep the calendar up to date as much as possible. I can also arrange an after-hours drop-off/pick up if needed. Something I have learned on Turo, it is much easier to book the vehicle and be late than try to come earlier and dropping off earlier is better than dropping off late. I can arrange a remote drop off/ pick up if I have something conflicting around the same time. Once you have the car booked, you are booked! I can also provide a bike rack that will hold up to 4 bikes, roof bag or pet hammock for the rear seat for a reasonable fee for the traveling adventurers. See the extras! Please return the car in the same condition in which you received it. If you feel there is not enough time before your trip ends to clean the car, there are extras for cleaning the interior and exterior. This can be done before or during the trip. Just send a message that you would like to add the cleaning and it will be added to the reimbursement after the trip is complete. Make sure to change your settings in the driver profile to include manual transmissions. Check out the FAQs for additional information. For this vehicle, there is no smoking or vaping and a $200 professional detail will be passed on if smoking did occur in the car at any point in the trip. If the included cables are damaged or missing, a $15 replacement fee will be added.

Guidelines

As a courtesy for the next renter, please vacuum the vehicle prior to drop off if you did not pay for the cleaning extra. There are free vacuums at the Jackson's Car Wash. The car will be ready with a full tank of fuel and is expected to be full for the next renter. Make sure that your license matches your account name exactly. If not, this may result in a canceled booking.

Faqs

  • How do I enter reverse?
    Push the shifter all the way down, then way to the left and up. This is a safety feature in newer manuals. I will demonstrate before leaving.
  • Will I be charged a late fee?
    If you are going to be late, please let me know, then contact Turo to extend the time. More than an hour or if there is a back to back request and a late fee may be charged. Please see FAQ #7 for more info. It is better to rent the car for longer and return early then return late as there may be another guest who has booked.
  • Can I avoid the pick-up/drop-off fee?
    You can avoid a pick-up/drop-off fee of $100 by using uber/lyft to get to my home. It is cheaper than me coming to you. About ~$20-25 each way. Here are some referral codes if you are new. Uber: dakota73 Lyft: DAKOTA471405 There is a direct bus route “44” that runs from the sky train (free) to Paradise Valley Transit Center. The cost would be $2. The sky train runs every 15 minutes and the bus every 30. Takes about an hour but saves a ton of money. Use the "transit' option in either Apple or Google maps to determine if that is an option for you. I can pick you up at the Paradise Valley Transit Center if you decide on that option.
  • Why is there a deposit?
    Turo implements a deposit of $100-400 and it varies on the driver and vehicle so I cannot say for sure how much it would be. This covers incidentals such as over mileage or post-trip cleaning.
  • Do I have to worry about hills in a manuel?
    Fret not! This car does have hill start assist. No riding the clutch on a hill in this car!
  • Where can I get a car wash/vaccum?
    There is a Jackson’s Car Wash about a mile away at 12010 N Tatum Blvd Phoenix, AZ 85028 United States They are pretty reasonable with their prices and do a good job in my opinion.
  • Are you flexible with pickup and drop off time?
    Of course! If you need more or less time with the car, contact Turo or make the change in the trip. Keep in mind this may result in fees if the time is over a certain amount of hours. I do not have control over these fees. This is done to prevent double bookings, lapses in insurance, late drop-offs, and miscommunication. The only change I can make on my end is canceling the trip.

Dakota was very friendly and super accommodating. He really helped me enjoy my trip to Phoenix and the Mazda 3 was very practical and easy to drive.

Dakota is super friendly and helpful!

Zihang C.-Feb 9, 2019

Such a sweet car!! This trip was more fun because of this car. Driving a manual around some of the higher elevations in mountainous areas felt much safer and easier than in an automatic. Loved it! Dakota was super responsive and nice. He even had chargers in the car for iPhone and Android. Comfortable seats, too. Would totally rent again.
