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.

I'm new to Turo, and Silvia was very patient with me. Her car is adorable!
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.
