2015 Audi A3Skye's Audi15517
Fantastic experience renting Skye's/Carxotic's Audi 3 this past weekend. The car is well maintained and handles very well with great acceleration. The pickup and drop off logistics were easy and straightforward and Skye was a pleasure to communicate with. I would definitely rent this car from them again. Highly recommended.
