Smart and convertible. My car is clean, looks new AND you will never have problems with parking! This is a perfect car for cruising the California city. You can also take it on highways and because of its size, save on gas.
One more convenience: I have a Fastrack for the Bay Area bridges. You don't have to stop and pay; just go and reimburse me when done with a ride.
The car feels spacious when you sit in it and it has storage behind the seats. Perfect for a day trip. My customers took it out for a 3-day trip too.
Got oil changed and transmission checked on March 11, 2016.

Silvie was so easy to coordinate with and her little Smartcar was PERFECT on this trip! She is the first owner to actually meet me in person for the key exchange, and I really appreciated that! Would highly recommend and I plan to rent from her again.
The car was so convenient to pick up and drop off. It was great for my mini road trip and made parking so easy! Ran well and is so cute! Silvie was so easy to communicate with and flexible with time changes. Would definitely rent again 😊
Silvie's car was great! We drove it down highway 1 to Santa Cruz and back and had no issues. The convertible made the ride even more fun. Silvie made pickup/drop off easy despite her schedule being a bit limited that day. It was my first time driving a smart car and I was very impressed.
I had no problems with Silvie's smart car and it ran fine on the highway! It is great for parking in the city and for switching lanes. Silvie also went through all of the nuances of a smart car when I picked up the car and she was responsive to my messages. Will likely rent again!
The car was great! Super clean, functional, and so much fun to drive. The Smart Car size makes parking in SF actually fun, and the convertible top makes cruising in the California sun all the more delicious. Our only hitch was that Silvie was a bit slow to respond to texts/calls when we were trying to pickup/dropoff the car. She was super accommodating and easy to communicate with when we did get a hold of her. We would definitely rent from her again, and maybe just be more careful to give lead time of when we're arriving at her place :)
Silvie was super pleasant to work with! She was very flexible with accommodating my timing and the car was clean and exactly as shown. The convertible aspect was a fun bonus -- I would definitely rent this car again. Thanks, Silvie! :)
We contacted Silvie 30 mins prior to our pickup time, per her request, and received no response. When we arrived at the car's location, we called and texted Silvie multiple times with no answer. We waited at a coffee shop around the corner for about an hour before giving up on our plans for the day.
Silvie contacted us about an hour after that to apologize and let us know she had a personal emergency, but the fact of the matter was that we had to abandon our plans for the day, which was very disappointing.
Silvie was very accommodating about helping us get a refund, but I would not attempt to rent from her again.
Silvie was very flexible and patient and her car was great. This was my first time using Turo, so I had a few questions and Silvie was very helpful. She was also flexible on pickup and drop off time -- making the experience very convenient.
We took the car to Santa Cruz and had a great day there. I had a few concerns about the transmission, which I mentioned to her, but she says thats how the car runs.
The car needs some serious work on its transmission, the rear tail light is out and the trunk is completely inoperable. The car is a few blocks walk from one of the most dangerous BART stations in the city which is a little frustrating if you have luggage or are coming in during non-daylight hours. All in all the car works but it's engine is weak and dilapidated. If you want to putz around SF and not spend any time worrying about parking in SF it's great and gets the job done. Just don't come thinking there is any storage my suitcase had to sit in the front seat making this more of a single passenger ride unless she fixes the trunk.
