This is a 2005 Mazda 3 SP23 Special Edition 4 door Hatchback boasting a 2.3L 4cylinder engine with automatic transmission. Special features include leather interior, navigation and 6 CD changer.
What's a Mazda SP23? If you're from down under (Australia), you're likely more familiar with it than us Yanks. The SP23 denotes a Mazda 3 jammed packed with the following features:
Automatic rain wipers,
Heated seats (turn it off after your rental!),
Premium stereo and Bose sound system,
6 CD player (what's that, right?),
Premium leather seats and trim.
This baby also sports the SEC package which consists of ABS brakes, TMPS in the tires, HID headlights and SAB (that's side airbags for you laymen).
But is it faster than a standard Mazda 3, you ask? You betcha! Those SP23 badges on each side add a combined 5 horsepower. No, Vin Diesel. They really don't.
No smoking or pets please!
Premium leather seats
Please park in any Getaround spot in the garage.
No smoking or pets in the car!
Am I responsible for cleaning the car after my trip?
Yes, please clean the car after your trip! If there is road debris, dirt or dead bugs on the car after your trip, please hose it down or have it cleaned, prior to your return.
Why am I being asked to upload a copy of my license when I have already been verified by Turo?
Sometimes, if we are not meeting face to face, uploading a copy of your license is a way for me to verify your identity.
2005 Mazda 3Irene's Mazda SP2315517
Irene was super communicative and helpful. Would definitely rent from her again.
Irene was very helpful though out the whole process. I did have some issues with getting the car returned exactly on time but she was understanding and very helpful. I would definitely recommend renting through her!
The car was fine- comfortable, functional and fuel efficient. Easy to pick up in the car park.
The biggest flaws were-
- The cigarette lighter didn't work so I couldn't charge my phone or navigation, this is a problem as not familiar with the roads.
- When braking the car the steering wheel vibrated which suggested that there was a potential brake issue and so I was concerned that the brakes may fail at some point which doesn't instill driving confidence.
Irene was very easy to communicate with. She made the pick up and drop off very smooth. I'm not a city gal so it was a tad crazy getting to the garage. For someone who is already in SF I would recommend.
