Car will be fully charged when picked up.

The owner cancelled this trip last minute. This message was automatically posted by Turo.
I needed a daily commuter for a week which i saw Rand's i3 listing and initially the car was rated as $24 a day and I booked it right away. He messaged me that the car might not be ready due to prior trip with Turo and he eventually cancelled it. Later in the evening he messaged me that the car is now here cleaned and ready to be booked. I tried booking he raised the rental rate more than $10 daily rate from the original price but i didn't complain which I considered the rate to be reasonable. Next morning when I took uber to the location Rand told me that his brother used the car at night and the car might be ready 20 mins after the actual appointment date. He told me that I can get the car earlier if he were to meet at another specific address but I didn't want to use another uber and deal with the hassle. Rand eventually showed up at the location about 30 mins later and handed me the key. I started driving the car and I realized the charge was nearly down to 10%, , the car was not washed,check engine light was on and strange marijuana odor was in the car. I eventually had to find charging station around the town and spent all day trying to take out marijuana smell. The car was great but I didn't quite enjoy my first experience with Turo.
Rand was easy to communicate with. I rented this car for a month and I helped save a few tons of carbon emissions. Great for the short commute especially with free charging stations everywhere. Not good for long distance driving, unless you have lots of time on your side.
