Black with red leather interior and sun roof. Beats sound system! 40 mpg! Fantastic city car
2015 FIAT 500Menasse's FIAT154.524
On July 9th, we waited about 2hrs before we could get into a vehicle. The one listed (black Fiat) was not on the lot, so after communicating with Turo Support for 40mins, they switched me over to his other red Fiat. Unfortunately, the car was down due to expired tags. Owner had personal difficulties (which happens), but at the end of the day, we got switched over to a vehicle that was a big liability. Otherwise, the Fiat's rear wheel treads were low, and the trunk had a faulty handle. We ended up meeting with him later in the day for him to put the tags on the vehicle, and afterwards, everything went fine. The size of the vehicle was perfect for 2 with 3 bags of luggage.
The Fiat got us from point A to point B, but that is the only positive aspect of the car. The picture of the exterior of the car shows a completely different fiat. The car was dirty on both the outside and inside upon pickup. I did not feel safe driving the car, as there was a constant and violent thumping noise coming from one of the wheels and the steering wheel was somewhat misaligned. The hood release latch was also broken and the car had no wiper fluid, so I was unable to refill the fluid and had to manually wipe the windshield down when it got dirty. The car is in desperate need of some maintenance. In terms of communication, I asked Menasse a question before the trip began and never got a response. Overall, a disappointing experience and I would not recommend renting this Fiat.
I really loved driving Menasse's Fiat. It was very zippy and good in stop and go LA traffic. I also liked the sound system. It was just the right size for a single person with minimal stuff. I wasn't thrilled that the car had an enormous crack in the windshield, so I would definitely check if that's been fixed before reserving this car in the future. But other than that, the experience was great.
The car was exactly what I needed to zip around town and have some fun doing it. I just wish the owner was more communicative. I like the personal touch. I picked the car up and it had a broken windshield. I wish that could have been acknowledged by the owner.
Key handoff was messy, with nobody even offering a shuttle ride, as my hotel was in the LAX area. I had to call two times for directions as to where the parking area was. The rest went smooth. There is a $20 extra parking lot charge you should be aware of. It is in rhe conditions, but nobody ofdered me a ride. As a first timer, I can tell you I was not impressed, and this is my honest opinion. I won't use Turo again due to this fee. I returned the car with a full tank as a courtesy which is far more than the required half tank. Yet a week later I get charged $20. Nice.
The car was good, but it was very hard to contact the owner. Turo didn't help with anything. The car had 2 warnings, flat tire and oil change. The information about the pick up and drop off was completely wrong. We wasted or time because of the bad information about timing and place. The owner contacted us after few hours, he is nice. But I didn't feel good about this experience, I was not driving confortable because of the warning and we had a big trouble dropping off the car.
Wonderful working with him! He was super flexible and understand on my shifting schedule! The cute Fiat was fun zipping around LA plus there's satellite radio. I wish I knew that when I first started my reservation. Can't recommend enough
Loved the beats by dr. Dre sound system! Super cute sports chic car...However, I think this car is JUST RIGHT for 2 people (even though it fits 4) & it's great on gas...I would definitely rent from Menasse again!
