*The Car, aka White Chocolate*
The car is a brand new, leather interior, super fuel efficient Toyota Prius. It gets 50+mpg in city and highway. It gets you around 400+ miles for an 8 gallon tank. There's plenty of trunk space, and can seat five passengers (For road trips, more comfortable for 4 peeps)
Sweet for city driving and long distance trips. Comes with an external GPS system (provided in the car). Bluetooth hands free audio and call technology for music, AUX output for any mobile device, CD, and AM/FM radio for the people out there that still enjoy some good ol' NPR. 1 iphone 5 charger, 1 phone 4 charger and a Samsung Galaxy charger included for all your cell phone battery needs. Large room in the trunk for multiple suitcases, groceries, etc.
(Just a note - If you use any of this stuff, please put in back in the middle compartment when you return the car. I don't want any break ins)
Full tank of gas when you pick up the car and should be the same when you drop it back off. If I have to refill it myself, I charge a $15 fee for the time plus the cost of gas. Make sure to fill my baby back up!
I have a mileage limit of 200 miles/day, plus $.75 for each additional mile.
*Dogs and Smoking*
No dogs or smoking in the car. Just not into cleaning up the mess afterwards. Thanks peeps.
I don't have a Fastrak device in the car. So bring your own if needed, or pay cash at the tollbooth.
2013 Toyota PriusNickolas's Toyota1531
The Prius was awesome! Took it up to the Yuba River for 2 days and the gas mileage (of course) was great.
I would say this particular trip was more expensive than other Relay Ride cars available....
I'm giving 3 stars not based on the car itself, but I was very surprised to have been charged an additional $50 for bringing the car 1.5 hours late due to horrific traffic on the 80W caused from a 3 car crash... (I had notified Nickolas in advance and this was not addressed to me) He expressed no rush in getting the car back and when I dropped it off he appeared to just be at his house...as he told me to "take my time" -- I sensed no rush or inconvenience caused on my end...
I guess there was a lack of communication...I think if the cards were turned I would have just let that slide but that's just me.
Make sure if you rent this car you return it right on the dot, otherwise you'll get charged.
