First time using Turo, sign up using the following link to receive $25 off your first trip!! **PLEASE READ IN FULL BEFORE BOOKING FOR AIRPORT OR LOCATION DROP OFF!!** Check out this YouTube video of the car, this is the exact same car as is listed. All of the options are the same! This will give you a very good idea of what you are getting with this wonderful car, even the color is the same! Trips from My home location and SFO are always available. If booking for San Jose or Oakland airport or another location, Please contact me first so we can verify that I am able to deliver and receive the car at that time. I make every effort to be available as much as possible but there are some times it just can't happen. Hopefully we can work it out. All SFO pickups and drop offs will be at the Turo Valet at the airport. It is easier for everyone that way. Very convenient for travelers. **THIS CAR IS A MANUAL TRANSMISSION!!! IF YOU CAN NOT DRIVE A MANUAL PLEASE DO NOT RENT!!** This is the top of the line of this model with all the bells and whistles!!! This beautiful 2017 Mazda Miata M5 convertible is a blast to drive and looks amazing!. It is really fun I-4 2.0L 122 Engine , it has an easy to drive 6 speed (manual) Transmission. It is a gorgeous Soul Red Metallic paint with Black Leather interior. It is loaded with extras including Convertible top is simple to use with one hand and is up and down in seconds!

You can Uber or Lyft to my home and pick up there also, if it is your fist time using Uber or Lyft please use the code below to sign up!. I allow my customers 200 miles a day, If you go over it will be charged at $.75 per mile. Tires will be inspected and tread will be pictured using a digital tread monitor before and after your trip. If tires are shown to have excessive wear you will be charged accordingly. Also my tires are marked so I know they are not removed from the vehicle and replaced with others. (Hate to have to say this but there are tons of people out there that are dishonest and will do this). This will in no way affect responsible drivers. Car will be detailed and cleaned before each trip. I ask that you bring it back freshly cleaned. If you can not or don't have the time, no problem. I have a place around the corner from my house that does an amazing job so just give me $30 upon returning the car and I will get it cleaned for the next driver. It is registered with Fastrak for all tolls in the area, please keep track of Fastrak use so we can square it up at the end of the rental. If you forget, No problem, I will bill you through Turo after the statement comes in. NO PETS, FOOD, or SMOKING of anything allowed in the car, if this is a problem please do not rent it. If you are found to do any of these you will be reported to and charged accordingly by Turo. **Car is monitored for excessive speed and acceleration through an app on my smartphone. I will be notified when any speed over 80 mph is reached and an extreme acceleration is done. If this is done in excess on your trip I will report the actions to Turo and you will be billed appropriately** I hate to do this and if you are responsible it will not be an issue at all, this is a high performance motor and I have to protect my investment. If this is a problem, please do not rent the car! This allows me to get a break on insurance and keeps my cost down for you on my cars! Thank you FEES $125 per tire for any curb rashes on the Tesla, Jaguar F-Type, Mazda Miata, Porsche 718 Boxster. $250 for cleaning for smoke smell, Vape smell, pets, excessive staining and spilling food or drinks. $10 administration fee on top of actual cost of gas/toll violations/citation. To avoid the fee Drive Speed Limit, Fill up the gas at the end of the rental, don't run tolls without Fastrak. I try to keep cars clean for check out as long as I am given sufficient notice, they're expected to be returned int he same condition as they were checked out in. If the car is significantly more dirty than it was on check out, you will be charged a cleaning fee. Smoking and Pets are strictly prohibited in all vehicles and you will be fined through Turo if the policies are violated. Also, late returns are absolutely not accepted, If you pick up the vehicle late that's usually not a problem for me as long as you let me know you're running behind, however picking up late DOES NOT mean you can return the car late. The car is due back no later than the listed Turo time (This is to protect you as insurance is covered during the rental periods only) If you're running behind, please modify the trip through Turo to avoid late fees. In closing, this is a fun car and I love it so please take care of it like it is your own. NO TRACK USE AND ALWAYS OBEY ALL TRAFFIC LAWS! Please feel free to contact me with any issues or questions! Thank you All cars have GPS trackers installed incase the car goes missing. This is common practice in the community and your location will not be shared with anyone. This is strictly for insurance purposes and to protect my investment. Thank you

Parking details

  • Is the convertable easy to use?
    it is simple, one hand and about 5 seconds up or down. Easy and fun
  • Is this car good for bigger people?
    I am 5'9, 170lbs and fit in it fine. I would think it would be a tight fit for anyone over 6'2 or over 250 lbs. I wouldn't recommend anyone bigger than that renting this car.
  • Can I eat, drink, smoke or have pets in the car?
    Absolutely not and this is non negotiable. Please do not rent the car if this is an issue. If car is returned smelling like smoke or dirty you will be charged appropriately through the Turo app.
  • Can anyone drive a manual transmission?
    If you do not know how to drive a standard manual transmission please do not rent the car. That being said the clutch is simple and it shifts amazingly easy. VERY FUN TO DRIVE!!
  • How is the trunk space?
    You can fit a few small bags in the trunk but there isn't a lot of space. Please pack light if you plan on traveling with this car.
  • What happens if I go over my miles?
    I allow 150 miles per day. Any additional miles will be charged at 75 cents per mile. If you need more miles let me know ahead of time and we will work out something for you!

Very fun car to drive, well maintained and clean, communication with Rob was smooth and he was very flexible with pickup change request

Rob is a great host, fast response and pickup&dropoff was easy and convenient.

Yao X.-Apr 26, 2019

Rob was absolutely AMAZING! He responded promptly to all my messages and was able to take care of a few last minute requests. Seriously, he is the best! As for the car - the Miata is as good as it gets. Nothing beats having the top down while driving on the amazing roads that surround San Jose. It’s the perfect car for a short trip down the Pacific Coast Highway or around the local area. Be responsible like he says, the car is designed to allow you to savor everything at slow speeds! Book this car now. You won’t regret it. This car made my trip to California extremely memorable and Rob did a perfect job setting everything up!

This is a beautiful car, and it's a privilege to drive it. So much fun! Turo made it easy, and it was totally worth it.

Brian P.-Mar 19, 2019

Drove Rob’s MX5. It was great. Car was clean and well maintained. Great for going to Napa and down HWY1 to Big Sur. Rob was great to work with with quick response time. The added bonus for me was the convenient parking at the pick up site. Highly recommend Rob and would use his cars again!
