Description

Highly recommend renting my 500e as a way to test drive the 500e/experience an electric car. Reasons why this car is awesome and you should try it: + Loaded with options (Navigation, Leatherette Seats, Parking Sensors, Auto Climate Control) + All electric! (Parked in a garage with easy charging) + Super speedy (Electric = Max torque from a stop) + Plenty of trunk space with the seats down (Recommend 2 people or less when grabbing stuff, putting the rear seats down gives a lot of vertical room) + Compact but fits 2 adults and 2 children (2 adults can fit in back too, but not happily!) + Easy to Park (fits in spots other cars can't use, has rear parking sensors too) A full charge nets 80-100 miles. 100 miles for local-only driving and 80 miles or less for highway-only driving (less if speeding; yup the car is more efficient in the city!) Using an EV charger (level 2) takes about 4 hours from completely empty to full (20-25 miles added per hour; ~25%/hr). Using a standard wall socket (120V) takes 24 hrs from completely empty to full (3-4 miles added hour; ~4%/hr). \\Included with the car// - 120V Charger - Air Compressor (in the trunk, includes tire goop in case of a flat tire)

I booked the Fiat 500E for the price with the intent of avoiding the crazy $4.50+ a gallon price in L.A. The FIAT did very well in that regard I ran it around town without ever needing to charge it. Picking up the FIAT was simple, it was parked in a lot just off the highway in Glendale and communication was good with the owner. Unfortunately this is as good as it got. When I picked up the car the car was not clean inside, there were grease marks on the back seats and the interior looked like it hadn't been washed. Upon further inspection on the outside the front tires were beyond the wear line and were almost bald this gave me some safety concerns that could lead me into an accident had needed to brake hard or swerve to avoid an accident. Once I sat down in the car I got a warning light on the dash showing me one of the tail lights was not working, which could have lead to a hefty fine. The rear hatch shocks were also faulty and would not hold the trunk up on its own. I have to admit, although the car had many defects, I did not voice my complain to Mike because my trip was so short and did not want to waste my time looking for another car to rent, but future turo renters beware of these issues as they may cause safety and or financial consequences if the car falls into your hands in this condition. All these defects and the car only has 22,000 miles on the clock, this car needs serious maintenance and TLC.

Mike is awesome! Mike always responds to text messages or phone calls immediately. Mike was also very flexible with scheduling. It was a joy working with Mike for my first Turo experience. Thanks Mike!
