FIrst time renters get $25 off with this code:
Fun, fun car, power convertible roof you can open while driving! Whee! VERY fun to drive. SUPER SHORT! Can park in teensey places - much easier to find parking places in SF! Still has seating for 4 though!
This convertible is classy and cool, but is a very modern car with some neat new amenities like backup distance warning, six speed automatic transmission, trip computer, a couple USB ports so you can use almost any phone charge cable directly, a good Bose sound system with aux jack and nice things like auto volume control based on speed.
It also handles and drives very well with a six speed automatic transmission. Gets very good mileage - 35-40mpg on the highway.
Also has a real trunk (separate from the cabin) - it's of course small :)
No smoking or pets please!
If you go over a toll bridge, please pay cash. If you can't, tell me - there is a $4 processing fee if you tell me, and it's $25 if you don't tell me. If you go over the golden gate bridge you can pay in advance or within 48 hours of going over - please be considerate of my time and pay in advance! https://www.bayareafastrak.org/en/guide/GGBridgeToll.shtml Thanks!
The speakers are not blown as one review states. The AUX jack was broken from being mishandled. I have had it replaced. Please be gentle with it! Thanks
Parked on the street at 128 Morris st. Park on the street, NOT in the lot. Even though SF is not easy, where it's parked in SOMA there are spots on morris most days day in the afternoon and evenings are no problem at all. The only exception is Monday night because of street sweeping. Monday night you can find a spot on Oak Grove or Merlin St. I know the streets around here very well, so if you are having trouble text me at 415-283-7327 - I can help you find a spot. If you have to return in the morning you can park in the lot at 40 Oak Grove St. Very inexpensive at $10 usually. If it's late morning (11am or later) most days during business hours I can allow you to park at a 2 hr spot or at a meter - but only by arrangement via text.

No pets. No driving in snow. Not the right kind of vehicle for that!
2015 FIAT 500Cafe15525
Great car for city driving! CJ was easy to communicate with and made getting and leaving the car a breeze.
The communication was absolutely without problems all the time. I received car clean and most of the time it went smooth.
Car is nice, enough space for 2 people, it´s just pretty loud, that´s maybe the only thing I found out it was a bit disturbing, but all the other factors were great.
Very clean. Fun to drive. Loved having a convertible. Took it north to Muir Woods and Sausalito and it was awesome driving across the Golden Gate Bridge with the roof open. Would absolutely rent again.
While there were some initial snags (locking mechanism, security system), CJ was Johnny on the spot with helping solve each and every issue. He even came to the car himself to ensure that we left in a timely manner!
As for the car, it was great for our Sonoma Valley adventure! With the top down, we zipped around in the summer sun with no problems at all.
My only gripe was the general cleanliness of the car and the sound system. While it wasn't dirty, it wasn't exactly in the cleanest shape. And the sound system might have some problems with it as the speakers seemed blown.
Being from Spain and the first time I rented from TURO. I would not go back to "professional" renting companies!
The communication with CJ was very good. All very smooth. Car as advertised... flawless!

The whole process was so smooth. Car was parked. I hit the road. Returned the car where it was parked. Had this lovely convertible FIAT and enjoyed 10 days of beautiful Bay Area weather. Cj was easy to deal with,friendly and responsive.
