Turo Go Enabled, Instant Book and Unlock via Turo App to Pickup anytime with self Check-In!
If you request delivery it will not be instant delivery, I can pay for an Uber ride to the car or you can get an Uber and I will reimburse. I can only delivery during non-working hours.
Insurance information: If you decline Turo insurance we are not responsible for you damaging our car. We had gotten several renters who either decline insurance or got basic insurance. Then they either don't want to pay for damages or are mad that they have to pay out of their pockets. We don't understand the mentality as you damage property, getting mad at the owner and don't want to pay. We recommend getting adequate or the highest coverage possible (Premium Turo Insurance). No Deductible! Vs Basic.
******* For any Maintenance I do the scheduled maintenance but because of driving style and where it is driven like the mountains, an example the brake or rotor might go out earlier let me know if you notice anything so I can get it checked, thank you. I usually don't get to drive the car as it is on Turo full time.
Toyota Prius 4D Hatchback Plug-In Hybrid Advance.
Gas or electric or both! My favorite of the fleet :)
Looking for the right car to rent may be a tough decision but just know you are in good hands when you rent one of my cars. I take pride in the cars I own. I keep them all in great looking shape no matter the year of the car. I keep the cars all up to date on their scheduled maintenance to make sure they are working, no check engine lights, and have them painted periodically to keep them looking their best. I use top of the line full synthetic oil, the best Rain-X/Michelin windshield wipers, best wax, car tire dressing, use the latest led super white lighting and the list goes on. I will have the car cleaned and detailed before pick up. I want to make sure your trip whether planned or emergency rental is a smooth transaction. I do offer delivery to the airports and addressed preferred. I even offer free delivery on trip 2 weeks or more, and I will even drop you off at your home or bus if you live nearby. I am very flexible on the weekends and after 3 pm due to my work. If you need the car before those hours I use the Turo Valet or designated drop off. I go out of my way to make sure every renter feels at ease when renting my cars. you can text me anytime and I will be sure to respond as quickly as possible. If trouble does arrive I will be there to order a toll or even meet you to have a tire repaired after my work hours.

Monthly rental gets a 25% discount. That's about $10 off the already low price plus free delivery within 30 miles! This Prius is better than a regular Prius. The most advanced Prius because you can use gas and also plug in to go all Electric (EV Mode). The car will be charged before you pick up depending on the advance notice I would be getting. Just pick up from the Dealer 4/17/2017 with only 55,000 miles. So virtually brand new as paint and interior are in Brand New Condition. The car gets at least 50 miles per gallon if you stop to charge it and use more of the Electric side you get even more miles per gallon. You can get up according to The EPA fuel economy rating is 95 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPG-e)
I get 77 MPG-E myself as shown on actual picture driving the car to and from work.
I am giving more miles than most people with 300 miles a day compared to 100 miles. I think this is plenty of miles per day. You will need to accommodate your miles to days rented to make sure they are enough. I usually allow a little over like 10 miles or so. Anything other than that, you will be charged. Go farther on your journey by planning ahead.
"The Toyota Prius Plug-In is a modified version of the mainstream Prius that splits the difference between its familiar gasoline-electric hybrid sibling and all-electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf. Fitted with the same powertrain as the regular Prius but with a more efficient, higher-capacity lithium-ion battery pack that can be externally recharged, the Prius Plug-In Hybrid can travel 10-15 miles and up to speeds of about 62 mph on battery power alone. Both of those numbers go well beyond the capabilities of the regular Prius. After that electric-only range is used up, the car reverts to a standard hybrid operation and as with the standard Prius, rates an impressive 50 mpg in combined city/highway driving.
The plug-in hybrid is a basically a 2013 Prius with a larger capacity 4.4kWh lithium-ion battery instead of the standard NiMH pack, an integral battery charger, and an industry-standard charging port. As such, this Prius can be charged and driven like a true electric car for up to 15 miles at speeds up to 62mph before the internal combustion engine kicks in. Spirited driving will also cause the engine to assist the electric motor, but in most cases, EV mode is a petrol-free experience. It takes about three hours to fully charge the battery using a standard 120V household outlet, and 1.5 hours from a 240V supply. A charger cable is conveniently located within a cubbyhole in the trunk area.
In addition to the unique charging port (with illumination), the Prius plug-in features a backup camera, LED daytime running lights and on the Advanced trim we drove, LED headlights (with washers) as well as a millimeter wave radar sensor for the dynamic cruise control and pre-collision systems. Once inside, you're treated to the usual full-on Star Trek experience -- the Prius plug-in improves upon its hybrid sibling with a higher resolution multi-information panel (which also shows EV specific data) paired with Toyota's Touch Tracer Display. The Advanced model adds a hard drive to the JBL-branded navigation system, OnStar-like functionality and a heads-up display that shows speed and turn-by-turn directions.
The star of the show is definitely Toyota's Entune infotainment system, which will include additional apps unique to the Advanced trim (Charge Management, Remote Air Conditioning System, Charging Station Map, Vehicle Finder, and Eco Dashboard). The voice-controlled navigation takes a bit of time to master, but the touchscreen interface is intuitive and easy to use." This car doesn't satellite radio anymore. It requires a service fee.
**** Notice to Renters
We have been noticing that the majority of renters have been going through tolls or getting parking tickets. For tolls in California, they automatically add a penalty of minimum $57.50 plus the toll amount. So please make sure you know about the added penalty, and not expect to only pay $5 for a toll. Please go to the Google Maps options and select avoid tolls. Also be aware of designated parking areas and time you may or may not park. In California, every week streets are cleaned by the city. If you are parked on a street with street sweeping that day, you will receive a ticket. You are responsible to pay the tolls and other acquired tickets/fees. I would rather have our drivers informed, especially those out of state and international travelers who are unfamiliar with California State laws. Let's be safe, have a great trip and avoid any unexpected fees. Have a great day!
