This car is my second car and is currently available all the time unless rented :). Perfect around town as well as for a trip to Sonoma/ Napa/Yosemite/etc. This car was converted to a plug-in and enjoys extra mpg than a normal prius.
I am close to SFO in San Francisco. This is a great car and I recently had the leather seats professionally redone.
Driver's seat has a seat heater. iPod/iphone4 hook up for music. Phone mount on dash.
Bumpers are weathered from city life, don't worry about zipping around town or taking a long trip either.
I'm happy to share this great ride with you.
Brendan's Prius was great! Fuel-efficient, clean and a great weekend drive. It also has an after-market battery that can be plugged in for additional range. The car came with a mobile charger too, which was handy! Brendan was quick to respond and picking up/dropping off the car was really easy -- he was very accommodating. If you're looking for a great inexpensive ride, this is it!
We had a fantastic trip to Tahoe, the car is like a lighter if you drive mindfully, not much gas, and it is confortable. Brendan was nice at all times.
The car though has serious problems with overheating, it's not a question of hot weather, there was snow and we had to stop at Rose Mt. road, on the way up, since the car could not keep climbing. Also, it took a long time to heat the interior. We informed Brendan and he says he'll take it to the shop. After that, it should be ok. For city or short drives, it's great to go.
Brendan was awesome! He went the extra (few) miles to pick us up, and drop us off, at the airport. His vehicle is very nicely maintained, clean, and comfortable. My boyfriend and I took a long road trip up the coast, into the mountains, and through Napa/Sonoma and we got the best gas mileage imaginable. We had a couple of technical issues with the car, which were largely attributed to the extra battery system being in 100+degree weather and driving up mountains but Brendan was excellent at helping us trouble-shoot the solutions. All in all, we very much enjoyed our time with Brendan's Prius and I would highly recommend this car for a cool-weather road trip or for city driving.
