2009 Honda FitShriram's Honda15539
Great little car, very economical on gas, Shriram very helpful, recommended.
This was a wonderful first experience with Turo. The car was excellent & Shriram was extremely helpful and accommodating. That bears emphasizing all the more given the last-minute nature of my request. I recommend Shriram very highly & plan to contact him the next time I need to rent a car.
The car was great (clean, ran well) and Shriram was very helpful. He was at work, so I wasn't able to get picked up at the PATH station, but it was a very short walk to his apartment where I picked up the car. The price was great for the quality, so I would definitely rent from him again.
This was my first time using Turo and renting from Shriram was an outstanding experience! I was unable to meet him in Jersey City the morning of pickup as we'd originally planned (I live in Manhattan & the PATH train had been unexpectedly shut down due to an electrical fire). I'd rented the car to get to an interview that day & I was panicked about how I would be able to get there in time. Thankfully, Shriram offered to drive the car into the city to meet up with me. Besides accommodating my last-minute emergency, he was quick to respond to messages from beginning to end & he was a very clear communicator. Price was fair and car ran as expected.
Shriram was very easy to work with , very accommodating made a pleasant experience ! He is steps away from Newport path station which is so convenient if you come from Manhattan > I will rent from him again.
Great car. Easy access from lower Manhattan. The car's small profile makes it a breeze to park, but it drives like a standard size car. The MPG is amazing and made a big difference on a trip to and from Montauk. Shriram is very pleasant and professional. The EZ-Pass is also a great plus if you have any tolls on your trip.
Shriram was incredibly nice, patient and so accommodating. He explained everything about the car in thorough detail before I got on the road, which I really appreciated. The car itself was great. Very fuel efficient! I was able to go all the way to Poconos, PA from Newport, NJ and back on one take of gas with a quarter tank left. The car was an easy ride, very reliable. I was definitely recommend renting this car. Thanks, Shriram!
Shriram was easy to reach and communicate with before and during the reservation. Easily accommodating to a longer trip with more specific details than a quick in-city trip.
Would rent again from him, but 2 small caveats though...
- Not due to any negligence or lack of maintenance/care on his part, but rather the small car itself: would not use the Fit for another trip that requires any acceleration/driving beyond city errands. It struggled getting up interstate hills to the point where even with the acceleration petal fully to the floor, the car would fail to keep speed and would even decelerate.
- Also, there was residual pet hair in the car. Should be noted in the rental information about the vehicle for those of us who are allergic. Sneezing and runny eyes while driving for 6+ hours isn't the safest.
Those two things aside, if I ever need to do in-city errands, this would be the perfect vehicle to rent with an owner who was easy to reach and flexible.
Renting from Shriram was a very easy, convenient, and cost-friendly experience. He left detailed instructions prior to the ride and I left with a very positive experience with Turo. He was very timely and considerate and I would definitely recommend him to others.
Good man, good car. Shiram's ride is comfortable, simple, and great on mileage. I particularly appreciated the phone dock which plugs into provided power jack and radio so my phone GPS could function, through the car's audio, the entire journey. Very helpful.
Additionally, Shiram was very cool about the EZ-Pass and up front about everything. He's a great communicator as well, fast responses always.
On another occasion he wasn't able to rent to me, but he was so honest and polite about it that I made a note to try him out again and I have no regrets.
tl;dr Good car, good owner, good price. Don't hesitate.
Rented Shriram's Honda Fit for four days. It was a great little car with fantastic gas mileage. The trunk area was surprisingly large, so don't be fooled by the size. It fit 3 of us comfortably and we were able to get multiple suitcases, sleeping bags, mats, etc into the back of it with room to spare. Shriram was great. Extremely accommodating. He responded quickly to all of my questions and even met me in the city (both pick up and drop off), which was a lifesaver! Would definitely rent from him again.
Shriram and his wife were extremely pleasant, flexible and accommodating, booking us last minute and then assisting us with removing the baby car seat, meeting us at a convenient location near the Newport PATH station and being quick to respond to messages and texts. The car runs smoothly and had plenty of room for the three of us and our luggage. Would definitely recommend!
The car feels brand new, is a joy to drive and it comes with many extras (listed) that make the driving experience that much more convenient. Shriram is accommodating, communicative and professional. Highly recommended!
The owner, Shriram, is such a wonderful guy! A great experience with him and his car. He is very prompt on communicating, punctual, polite, and open to suggestions. We rented twice from him within a 4-day period, he even agreed to deliver the car to Manhattan for us, what a gentleman! His car Honda Fit is clean, easy to drive and with a lot of mileage per gallon of gas, a please to use. Rent from Shriram!! We will probably rent from him again and zealously refers this car to a lot of our New Yorker friends!
Shriram was a great person to rent from. His Honda Fit was very clean, efficient, and safe to drive. Pick up was extremely convenient, and on time. He was very prompt answering to texts and calls along the way. We ended up running into a few obstacles along the way, completely our errors, and we ended up being very late for the drop off time. Shriram was incredibly understanding and it went over without any hassle. Very grateful to have rented from him, and would recommend this partnership to anyone.
This was my first time renting on Turo and had an excellent experience. I contacted Shriram the night before, and his communication was very prompt. He returned my emails and text messages quickly, and even coordinated to pick me up at my new apartment in Jersey City. The car was compact, very easy to park, and great on gas. Dealing with Shriram was a pleasure, and would recommend his rental to my friends.
It's my first time using Turo and had a great experience with Shriram's car. The car is new and clean. Shriram was very punctual and very helpful in making sure I had a good experience. The best thing is he lives close by and it is so much more convenient and cheaper than going to Car Rentals/ ZipCar
