Compact, easy to drive and easy to park, this sporty coupe is perfect for zipping around and parking wherever you like! Save money on gas and breeze quickly past large cars. Fit into any parking space! Parallel parking is a snap! Perfect for 1-2 people and the trunk holds 4 bags of groceries or a couple small suitcases. Safe, efficient and easy to drive automatic or manual transmission (has both). Safe for the freeway, but I bought this car as a neighborhood vehicle for finding parking on busy beach weekends. Its perfect for that.
"Smartie" has low miles, is very clean, and has the deluxe upgrade package including non-retractable moon roof, dark tinted windows, A/C, 5 CD changer and Stereo, 2 USB charger plug, leather heated seats, and covered trunk to privately stow items.
Please fill gas with premium grade 91 only as its a European Mercedes with an efficiency engine that requires a higher grade. (It drives slowly with regular gas and can get engine problems.)
Please always lock the car -- and there is a locking glove box for valuables.
Smart Cars are best for efficient city driving, easy parking, and tight corners. Not great for long road trips or steep hills. A fun, happy car with serious German engineering. Try it, you'll like it.
- This is a NON-SMOKING car please. Super important. -

The car currently resides an easy 10 min drive from LAX in Playa del Rey for free pickup. Delivery to LAX is $30, and you have to drop me back at home (I'm just a person, not a car business) so this is only available for solo drivers as the car only has 2 seats.
No smoking, no pets, please return the car cleaned inside and out and ready for next driver.

The owner cancelled this trip 2 days before it started. This message was automatically posted by Turo.
This car was advertised as airport delivery. After accepting, I was told that there was no airport delivery available at that time. When I tried to cancel, there was a $20 fee. The car also had a check engine light on and ran sluggishly. I returned the car reasonably clean 2 hours early and was told that a claim would be filed because it wasn't brought to a car wash.
I had a great trip with Alicia's smart car. It was really smooth, it was clean. Heck of a gas saver, it really catches people's attention in the streets, and chicks digg it lol. The owner Alicia was very attentive towards all my questions, very professional and straight forward , patient..pick up and drop off was easy. I will definitely rent little ol smartie again thanks Alicia
Great experience! The car was a pleasure to drive and Alicia was very accommodating. Would love to rent again next time I'm in town!

My ride with Alicia's Smartie was the perfect compliment to my Venice experience. I always managed to find great parking with this car in situations where parking was difficult (which it frequently is in Los Angeles). I would highly recommend renting from Alicia to anyone looking for an easy way to get around.
The car was perfect for driving locally. Car runs fine, no problems with it. Easily fit 2 pieces of luggage. Alicia was easy to work with, very flexible and easy to communicate. Will definitely rent from her again.
This was my first Turo experience and it was an extremely positive one! Alicia was easy to work with and she has a nice car, with low mileage. It's like driving a very fast golf cart. The pick up and drop off was simple and seamless and Alicia was on top of everything. I recommend this highly (as long as you don't have a lot of luggage!).
