Hi renters! The best feature about my car is remote unlocking, which means there is no need to schedule a time for us to meet and hand over the car key in person for both pickup and return. I can unlock the car for you anytime you prefer at the beginning of your trip. You can find the car key inside of a black visor hung above the steering wheel.
This is an absolute gas saver with 28 (city)/39 (Highway) mpg, Cruise control, Auxiliary audio input for iPod/iPhone/Android, 6 total speakers and other great features. . For details, please see http://www.edmunds.com/honda/civic/2012/st-101384849/features-specs/
Don't forget to refill gas and return it back to the same spot. Thanks and have a wonderful trip:D
Snow tires or chains
Find the car following the driveway of 2231 Ward St. It will be parked in the open garage (see last three pictures in the description for more details). Be aware that the driveway is a bit narrow so please be careful.
This rental experience will be different from others because I will remotely unlock the vehicle and won't meet you. Please read the following instructions carefully. Don't hesitate to contact me for any question or concern :)
How to find the car?
Navigate to "2231 Ward St" and the car will be in the garage at Spot 2. My license plate number is "6XJE717." Be aware that the driveway is a bit narrow so please be careful. If spot 2 is occupied, take a picture of the license plate of the other vehicle, text me, and then park in the nearby neighborhood.
How to return the car?
Please also remember to take pictures of gas level, mileage, and car body after the trip and UPLOAD all pictures to Turo website/app. Lock all doors and TEXT me before you drop it off and leave. Also, make sure you check with me and pay for the extended trip if you are running late, otherwise you will be subjected to Turo's late fee charges ($50/hour).
Why will this rental experience be different from others? How to pick up the car without physically seeing me?
This rental experience will be different from others because I will remotely unlock the vehicle and won't meet you.
Call/text me at (626)353-0214 upon arrival and I will unlock the car remotely. You can find the car key in a black pocket hung above the steering wheel. Don't start the trip until you take pictures of gas level, mileage, and car body and UPLOAD pictures to Turo website/app. This is important if you don't want to be responsible for any damage previous renters caused. Let me know if gas is not refilled to the fullest. Be aware that the daily mileage limit is 150 miles. Turo charges 75 cents for every additional mile. Please arrive in time otherwise I might not be able to respond to you.

Eva was immediately in contact upon arrival and return! The car worked beautifully and I had zero issues moving myself around. Definitely a solid trip! :)
Eva was quick and easy to communicate with and the convenience of the remote unlocking was great! I used the car on a very rainy day and one of the windshield wipers needs to be replaced and didn't work well but fortunately it was on the passenger side so it wasn't too much of an issue. Would definitely request this car again.
A series of misunderstandings and unfortunate circumstances resulted in this being a totally stressful and useless experience. I needed to rent a car to make it to back to back shoots that were pretty far away from one another. I picked up the car pretty easily, but then after stopping briefly at my apartment, once I got in the car to head to work, the car wouldn't start. In a total panic, I called Eva and messaged her on the app. No response. I ended up taking a $40 uber to the first overnight shoot and a frantic compilation of rides to make it to the next one (I was late of course.) Once Eva got back to me she asked me to try starting the car again, but it was obviously still at my house and I was shooting a couple of hours away. I said if the car was working I could give her my address and she could pick it up, as I obviously wasn't using it. But she Wasnt available for that. So I asked her if she wanted my fiancé to just go drop it off. She said yes. He dropped it off right where we got it from, but apparently that wasn't right and made it clear that she would report me to the turo authorities if anything happened to her car. Anyway, needless to say I absolutely wish we had used just about any other alternative over what turned out to be a massive and unnecessary headache.
Everything worked out flawlessly. Once I arrived at the rental site and texted Eva, she unlocked the car remotely in less than a minute! The car drove well and was fairly clean inside. I got great gas mileage (40/mpg). This is an excellent deal and highly recommend renting from Eva.
I needed a last minute ride for a wedding this past weekend, I couldn't have rented from anyone better than Eva. The car was clean, great gas mileage, and super thorough instructions on how to navigate to/get into the car; she unlocks the car remotely too which is great.
All in all, it was a great experience, thanks Eva!
Eva was 15 minutes late to unlock her car BUT gave me 30 free miles for doing so, which worked out perfectly given that she knew I would go over the included daily miles. On top of that, she was accommodating and allowed me to drop off the car 1 hour later than scheduled. Other than that, car is clean, it has great mileage, and you don't need to meet with Eva because she can unlock/lock it remotely.
Eva was very responsive and easy to communicate with. She was really nice and there was no need to meet with her because she unlocks the car from her phone. Gas needed a little push but I think it's because I rented it the day before Eva was going to get a oil change. But perfect for a first ride & if the weekend price wasn't more than the weekday price id rent again today! (:
Good: I did not have to meet with Eva at all. She unlocked vehicle at pickup. She was quick to respond to messages. She let me park my vehicle in place of the rental as it was nothing but two hour parking in her area.
Bad: The dirtiest car I ever rented. It was not vacuumed, it was dusty, the car had bird poop and it smelledof bad b.o. that my 9 yr old kept saying the smell was giving him a headache. The car has obviously not been cleaned for awhile . I arrived 15 minutes early to rerurn the car and called Eva twice. No answer, so I returned it exactly how I picked up the car and key where I found it. I sent Eva a message on the app and she responded quickly saying she wasnt home but questioned me about how i was able to lock her vehicle and if I left the key. By the time I drove away it was 5:40pm. Had she been home at drop off time, she would have met me and made sure her car was locked and armed. I do not think I would rent from ger again unless it was the vehicle left on Turo.
The car was in decent shape and got me where I needed to go. The arrangement to pick up the car was not ideal though; Eva said 6am was not too early but then slept through my phone calls when I arrived; thankfully her roommates were leaving at 630am and they woke her up for me. She seems very nice, but it did make me much later than I wanted to be (hit rush hour also), so if it's an early morning rental just be wary. Otherwise I think this is a great car to use and in a very convenient location in downtown Berkeley- gas station 2 blocks away also.
