Enjoy the blue skies and white peaked mountains of Colorado without a roof blocking the magnificent views. The power and comfort of my Nissan 350Z convertible with 6-speed manual transmission will enhance your appreciation of the amazing things Colorado has to offer.
My 350Z convertible has a power convertible top and a 6-speed manual transmission. The 3.5 liter V6 engine has plenty of power to climb paved mountain passes. The heated leather seats are power adjustable and very comfortable. The stereo offers an auxiliary input jack as well as USB or SD card so you can bring your own music with you.
This is a great touring car for two people to take day trips, but if you need to bring luggage please look closely at the pictures to see what will fit and read below for the dimensions of the suitcases used. Anything more than 2 small carry on suitcases (that easily fit in the overhead bin of a plane) OR 1 large checked bag and you will have issues. I couldn't fit a backpack next to the luggage because the books in it hit the trunk lid. If you are traveling with extra luggage consider getting settled at your base location and arranging to use the 350Z convertible for your site seeing excursions.
My airport delivery fee may seem high but if you'll be renting for several days and consider the taxes and fees added to a traditional rental, I think you'll find the 350Z convertible an affordable and much more fun alternative to a basic rental sedan. Compare it to the cost of a convertible from a traditional rental company and my car should be way cheaper. Of course, it is a 2005 and while it's clean, it is not pristine.
I often use a window mounted lockbox to simplify coordination of key exchanges. I'll have you upload a picture of your driver's license using the Turo app before your trip so I can compare it against a picture you'll take of yourself with the car, then message me to get the pin code for the lockbox. As a reminder, the 350Z convertible is a 6-speed manual transmission, so if you don't already know how to properly drive a manual transmission please don't rent this car. Also, this car is to be driven on pavement only. If there is a chance your path will take you on dirt or gravel roads, please do no rent the 350Z.
I require a 2 day minimum rental and charge for delivery. I live in the South Metro Denver area near I-25 and C-470 if you want to look into alternate transportation to pick it up. If you select to pick up the car at my home location, but ask with your rental request, I'm happy to arrange key exchanges at the Dry Creek or Arapahoe Station light rail stations for FREE.
For your convenience, the car has an Expresstoll transponder in the window for the toll roads of Colorado. If you incur any tolls during your trip I will request reimbursement through Turo. More information at www.Expresstoll.com

June 8, 2017 - In response to Jeremy's concern with the tire pressure, I've had them checked for leaks and an alignment done at my local tire shop. I'll be keeping an eye on them, but had not and have not experienced any issues with the sensors myself. There is now a manual pressure gauge in the car to check if the light turns on.
July 18, 2017 - Out of concern for the comments Jesse made, the front tires have been checked and still have useful life before hitting the wear marks, but I had the alignment rechecked and adjustments were made that appear to improve handling. I haven't had many opportunities to drive the Z myself in the rain since most storms around here are brief, but the people I talked to at the dealership when I got it aligned said that Z's are known to slide a bit in wet weather causing the stability control to kick in. Being a convertible, they are also known to be a bit leaky in the rain.
