This smart car feels like a fun go-cart you can use to zip around town. Comfy seats, higher safety ratings and more airbags than you'd expect!
The car is parked on the street. Feel free to park anywhere within a few blocks, as long as it's in a spot where it won't violate any parking restrictions within 24 hours of your return! Luckily it's a tiny Smart car so parking is easy and fun :-)

Zach was absolutely fantastic. I booked his car less than 24 hours from when I needed it. There was an issue with the locking company not completely unlocking the car and Zach solved it right away. The car has definitely seen some miles and could use cleaning.
When it come to communication Zach is AMAZING! Very informative and quickly responded to the few inquiries we had. However, the car was a bit messy when we entered the vehicle assumably the fault of the previous renter. In addition, the car itself doesn't seem to be in the best condition. There are some "quirks" I'd rather live without. For instance, there are excessive jerks, sometimes the locks jam and doesn't lock, constant vibrating (noisy car), expensive (premium) gas, and the car is really similar to a stick shift car even though it's automatic. It's weird. All in all the trip was great and we definitely would recommend the car if you're looking for something cheap and extremely convenient with parking. Thank you Zach.
Zach was super great and thorough with his instructions. Smart Car was fun to drive. The Turo app however could really be improved - not user friendly and such a tedious (and unclear) process for renting and returning. Even now, the app is having errors trying to submit this review :/
I only give it a 4 because returning the vehicle in the Mission took approximately 40 minutes to find parking, and I was late for a gig due to this.. I believe investing in a parking garage or renting a parking space or widening the parking parameter may be helpful.
Otherwise, awesome trip and thorough owner. Would use again if parking madness on the return is somehow streamlined.
Zach was helpful and available to talk early in the morning when the car initially didn't start at the beginning of our trip. We called and he fixed the problem within a half hour and we were on our way. The easy pickup and drop off made the rental super convenient for us. The car has a USB cable for phone charging and audio. Everything fit our needs and it was smooth sailing! Thanks Zach!
