New renters get $25 off https://turo.com/referral?code=441935rnw6im Need Uber to get to the car? https://www.uber.com/invite/kup68zz1ue
Remote key handoff! Easy, and fast. A solid and reliable Prius! 45+mpg and 300 miles per day - 50% more than the average car on Turo.
The original and perhaps still the best hybrid system. 40-50mpg depending on how you drive.
If you need more miles I usually do 50% off the turo standard extra mileage charge. If you are looking to save money consider this:
55mph - 57mpg
65mph - 44mpg
75mph - 38mpg
:) These are not theoretical numbers - this is my experience driving this car. And that's using the less efficient California oxygenated gasoline. So consider not rocketing down the freeway! It's more relaxed anyway. Not to mention environmentally responsible, AND being nicer to the car.
Seafoam is great for errands or long trips! Lots of cargo capacity, seating for 5 in comfort. Backup camera for those tight SF spots. Aux in jack for connecting your phone and playing music through the stereo. Usb port for charging.
EV / Hybrid
Parked on the street. Even though SF is not easy, where it's parked in SOMA there are spots virtually every day in the afternoon and evenings are no problem at all. The only exception is Monday night because of street sweeping. I know the streets around here very well, so ask me - I can help you find a spot. Text me if you have questions or need help. If you have to return in the morning you can park in the lot at 40 Oak Grove St. If it's late morning (11am or later) most days during business hours I can allow you to park at a 2 hr spot or at a meter - but only by arrangement via text.
I do remote key handoff. I will require your drivers license and photo per Turo terms - https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001847347-How-do-remote-key-handoffs-work-
Pets ok. Please keep them in a carrier... and you MUST clean up after them. NO EXCEPTIONS! I will charge you if there is pet hair because it's really bad for the next renter.
No smoking. ANYTHING. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you encounter evidence of smoking from a previous renter, please send me photographs immediately, you don't want to get caught with the $150-200 cleaning fee that will inevitably result.
Gas is not included. Whether or not it is full when you got it, and whether is seems to move the gauge, put some in! You used some gas driving around. It goes 35-50mpg depending on your driving. There is a very handy Chevron station at 6th and Harrison just a couple blocks from where the car usually is. If it's not full when you get to it you can report that in the app.
If it's not full when you return it you'll pay for the gas plus $10 filling fee
If you go over a toll bridge, please pay cash. If you can't, tell me - there is a $4 processing fee if you tell me, and it's up to $25 penalty if you don't tell me. Saying when you rent that you are "Going north" or "Going to Yosemite" does not qualify as informing me! You must tell me at the end of your rental via text, so I can add it on right away. If you go over the golden gate bridge you can pay in advance or within 48 hours of going over - please be considerate of my time and pay in advance! https://www.bayareafastrak.org/en/guide/GGBridgeToll.shtml Thanks!
The car ran well and as a Prius, had excellent gas mileage. It has a few dings/scratches on the outside and the interior has a few stains, but it was perfect for the job of driving down the coast for the weekend. C.J. was generally quick to respond. I would rent again for a long trip.
The car had a brake light out. The front grill area was damaged causing a rattling while driving. The icing on the cake was he had black electrical tape covering the service lights on the dashboard. I removed the electric tape to avoid further deception of future renters. I've rented vehicles before and had no issues. This was definitely an outlier of an experience with turo.
He was easy to contact and communicative but until this car is in safe driving conditions wouldn't suggest renting this vehicle. He may have other vehicles that are great but this particular vehicle I would suggest avoiding.
I ordered the car for a trip to yosemite. C.j. provided all relevant Information. But he told me that he had not checked the car after the last rental. So the car was not clean. Sand in the car and on seats. One front light did not work, what is not safe to drive nights in the yosemite. I currently use a professional rental car company again to avoid surprises.
My trip went well. C.j. Was really fast to respond and very accommodating. Overall, a great communicator. He was able to open the car remotely upon arrival and was really flexible with me for returning the car. I'll be sure to rent through him again!
CJ was great and the Prius was perfect! It was incredibly easy to drop off and pick up, CJ was responsive and made the whole process very easy. The car was clean and ran without any issues at all. I would definitely rent from him again in the future!
