For San Diego Airport, we have many cars so we can’t pick up passengers at curbside without a taxi license. We can meet 1.5 mile from the terminal. Travelers can pick up and return the car anytime DURING the reservation. So if your plane is delayed etc. you don’t have to panic. You don’t have to wait for someone to pick you up. You don’t have to drive someone back to their home and you don’t have to pick someone up to return the car. Travelers can walk or have one person in your group go pick up. If you Uber/Lyft, it is about $5. Instruction will be sent to you when you book. If you pick up at the airport, please let me know this arrangement will work for you so I will accept. I let you know in advance, so if this will not work you can make other arrangements.

You'll Like This Car If...
If you're looking for a small, that is big on fun and fuel economy and has some great exterior colors, the 2012 Mazda2 hatchback should do nicely.
While its 100-horsepower won't make the 2012 Mazda2 hatchback the quickest car in its class, its well-tuned suspension and direct power-assisted steering deliver on the "Zoom-Zoom" promise of this 2,300-pound car. We spent the day pushing the little Mazda2 through its paces and came away scratching our heads: How can such a small car with such limited horsepower have us giggling like mischievous school children up to no good? On winding mountain roads, we pushed the little 15-inch tires well beyond what we thought they could take, but they held firm. Our 2012 Mazda2 rounded corners with utter confidence and the little engine, though working hard, delivered acceptable acceleration when needed. The brakes are strong and the steering response is nearly MX-5-Miata-like (note – we said "nearly"). All of this lightness doesn't mean a compromise in comfort, though, as the Mazda2's cabin is surprisingly quiet even at highway speeds. But, when tasked with rapid overtaking of slower traffic or quick sprints up steep hills, we were quick to realize that the Mazda2's main strength is driving fun and not brute power. Plan your passing maneuvers accordingly.
After hours of driving and no soreness to complain about, we were surprised at how comfortable the 2012 Mazda2 hatchback's seats were. Most cars in this category have stiff seats with virtually no bolstering.
Notable Optional Equipment
This is the Touring Trim: 2012 Mazda2 Touring trim adds some functional interior features, including cruise control, trip computer, upgraded cloth seats with red piping trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio and cruise controls and two additional speakers. On the outside, the higher trim level includes a rear roof spoiler, fog lights, chrome exhaust tip and alloy wheels.
