Free Gas Terms: I've built in the cost of gas into rentals for trips under 50 miles/day. For trips over 50 miles, please refuel the car back to full (it's always delivered this way).
2013 VW Golf TDI (that's Turbo Diesel Injection for those who aren't familiar). This is a great car with lots of bells and whistles and drives great. It gets great gas mileage (30 city/50+ hwy MPG) without sacrificing power. Holds a deceiving amount of stuff with the large hatchback and ample rear seats that fold flat for a compact car.
A hitch-mounted bike rack and/or 4-person tent + air mattress for car camping can be included free of charge but you must notify me beforehand so I can have it ready for you. At least 24 hour notice for this, please.
If you're new to Turo, sign up with this link and we both get $25 off a rental: https://turo.com/referral?code=32286rLyJ95
Includes Bluetooth, iPod/iPhone and USB connections.
You must be an experienced manual car operator to rent this car. This car takes DIESEL.
I'm flexible with refuel options. If you would rather not spend the time refueling over 50 miles, I am happy to compromise with a cash payment upon return of $5 per 40 miles driven to save you the hassle and time of going to the pump. You have a range of 500-700 miles per tank so it's unlikely you'll have to refuel during a short rental anyway.
Q: Are you flexible with mileage?
A: I am typically not flexible with mileage limits, but I am forgiving with small overages as long as they're discussed in advance. I am happy to discuss extra mileage with you and we can come to an agreement on a reasonable price below the $.75/mile "penalty rate", typically 37¢ per mile in cash/Venmo.
Q: Are you able to deliver to the airport or my house/hotel?
A: Yes, and delivery is free with rentals over 7 days. Make sure to choose this option when booking. I cannot change it or accommodate after you book.
Q: Do I have to return the car clean?
A: Unless you're renting the car for more than 2 days, I expect the car to be returned as clean as it was given to you. For longer rentals, you may return the car with normal amounts of exterior road dirt and interior dirt, but if the car is returned in an excessively dirty condition that requires special cleaning, you will be billed the actual cost of this.
Q: I have another question not answered here
A: Please submit your booking and we can discuss your questions. If there is an issue that prevents you from being able to rent the car, we can cancel the reservation without penalties within the first 24 hours.

2013 Volkswagen GolfFree Gas! Golf TDI Sport Manual Turbo Diesel15546
David's car is a fun, versatile machine to drive. It was perfect for a trip up to Yosemite, and comfortably fit two people with camping gear. I highly recommend it if you like driving stick and want something with low MPG.
Renting this car was a great experience. The instructions David provided for pick-up and drop-off were clear and straightforward. Any questions I had were answered through the app almost immediately. I had a great time driving the car. It was clean, sporty, and fuel efficient. Definitely recommend taking it out for a spin!
David was awesome and accommodating. Trip went smoothly and the car was just as advertised, clean, good on gas, small and easy to park. Also if your worried about stick shift in the city the hill assist on this makes it a breeze. Would definitely rent from him again!
Had a terrific experience with the nimble powerful and spacious Golf TDi. Pickup and dropoff were super easy. I opted to refill the gas and David was very responsive with info. USB chargers, phone dock and Bluetooth made it complete.
