This mini cooper is fun to drive and will offer a new driving experience if you have not driven a mini cooper before. It's small enough to get easy parking in the city and saves on gas. Yet it has enough room to seat 4 people.
Walking distance from UCB(I'm also a UCB Alumni).
Gas takes premium. Please DO NOT PARK on the 2 HR permit zones beyond Dwight or Grant St.
No pets or smoking please.
Fast trak is tied to the license plate of the car. When the car pass through the Fastrak lanes, the camera will pick up the license plate and charge it to my account. Just let me know at the end of your trip if you use it so I can request a reimbursement for exact toll amount instead of Turo's billing department later which may incur additional charges.
2006 MINI CooperJai's MINI154.544
The car was fast and gas efficient. Easy pickup and drop off. Easy to park and clean!
The car had some minor wear and tare. It had a smoke oder after driving a few hours. Had to go to gas station to clean the windows to see. Can tell it was sitting for a while. Needed steering fluid, stiff. Other then that it was functional and fast. Great on gas didn't budge. Needs maintenance and cleaning. Great space in the car, great size. Great communication with owner, easy pickup.
Using Jai's Mini Cooper was super flexible and easy to pick up and drop off. I'm thankful that he lives in a safe neighborhood where he felt comfortable leaving the car unlocked for me to pick up and comfortable with me leaving it for him unlocked. It did have an oil leak which scared me a little but after I fully assessed it, and found that the low oil warning wasn't going off I felt better.
This was my first Turo experience and I must say I was pleased with experience. Jai was extremely responsive. The vehicle was easy to pick up and drop off. However the light for tire pressure went off. Other than that I would definitely use Turo again!
Jai's mini was completely awesome! It drove well, wowed my co-worker who hitched a ride to work with me, and did exactly what I needed it to do. It was bery comfortable to drive (I'm about 6'0 tall), clean inside and out, had an amazing sun/moon roof views, handled curves exceptionally well!
I love that Jai can remote lock and unlock his vehicles which made this rental extremely convenient. Jai is always prompt which I appreciate, but is also willing to be flexible!
