Great SF car! Small, fun to drive, and easy to park. And it's been a city car long enough that you don't have to worry about scratching the bumper -- I've already pre-scratched it for you! Approximately 180k miles, but still running strong.
Put a new top on it in early 2012, and new brakes, battery, and alternator in mid-2014. Rear-wheel drive, manual transmission, and no antilock brakes, so it's classic driving -- be sure to drive safe.
I've got a lockbox outside my apartment, so you can pick up the keys even when I'm not around.
Two locations to get it: home is Noe near 24th street, and work is near 2nd & Mission.
Known flaws: cruise control doesn't work well (DON'T USE!), and crack in driver door armrest (shown in picture, and makes it more comfy, actually).
And please don't drink anything other than water in the car. One of my renters accidentally had a small sticky liquid spill, and so I'd like to avoid that in the future. Thanks!

Alex was wonderful to work with when renting his Miata. He accommodated my flight arrivals and departures by changing his own schedule so I could easily pick up and drop off his Miata. He responded quickly, even with a three hour time change between our locations. Without Alex's cooperation and generosity, I wouldn't have been able to take a Miata to Mazda's 25th anniversary celebration at Leguna Seca.
Thank you so much Alex - it was great meeting you and driving your Miata.
Alex is really responsive, flexible (he changed his schedule around to let me borrow the car), and was easy to deal with. The car itself was awesome! However, one minor detail about the car is that the battery felt weak, but Alex made this known to us, even offered a battery charging unit, and had jumpers in the back. I'm sure he will take care of this in the future when the battery becomes a problem. Will definitely rent from Alex again!
Alex and his car comes highly recommended. My husband and I celebrated our 1st year anniversary in the SF/Napa area and it wouldn't have been nearly as memorable without renting from Alex. We arrived at his house earlier than we had originally discussed and Alex was OK with us picking up the car early. Prior to our vacation, I had voiced concern about fitting a suitcase is such a small vehicle, but my husband insisted that we would be fine...of course we weren't, not to mention his 6'3" frame also didn't fit well into the Miata LOL!. Alex could have sent us away but instead he loaned us his hockey bag and let us keep our suitcase locked up in his garage. We had an amazingly romantic time cruising Napa in this car. It was easy to drive, and Alex was a blessing! I would rent this vehicle again in a heartbeat!
I really enjoyed driving this little zoomer! I appreciated that Alex went out of his way to securely get the key to me when he wasn't available to meet up. Throughout the entire process, he was very communicative and was a pleasure to interact with. I highly recommend this car for anyone who enjoys driving with the top down or driving a manual transmission.
