Car is in good condition and runs great. It has a charge port for your phone and also a mounting option for your phone on the dash. Locks, side mirrors, and windows are all manually adjustable.

Pickup was super easy and car was perfect for our trip. Drop off was a little difficult do to lack of parking on his street but he was more than understanding when we had to drop it off a few streets down.
This vehicle is in decent condition. The windows and doors are all manual, the back fin is hanging off. The interior has what appears to be cigarette burns in several places. I had an initial issue with the gas which showed Full when I started the car and within 5 miles changed to 3/4 Full which scared me in regards to gas mileage. Although it normalized, every time I put gas in, it did this little dance. The battery light came on at one point, as did the service engine light. The car wobbles over 55mph.
This is definitely not a good choice if you're driving up to Vail or Glenwood Spring because it struggles to climb hills. I had to drive behind the 18wheelers because it maxed at 30mph going up an incline.
City driving is fine. The car is nice and roomy. Blake was good at responding each time there was an issue. Pickup was easy but drop off can be a bit challenging. Oh and be aware of the mileage overage - it can cost you more than the original rental.
Overall it was an interesting adventure. This was my first Turo experience and likely my last :).
This service has its perks for local driving but in the end newer cars with no mechanical issues and unlimited miles works better for my needs.
The ease of pick up and delivery were great. Blake was very fast with communication and response time. The car was basic, but reliable. The suggestion I would make is to be sure the car is clean before someone picks it up. It was pretty dirty inside and out. The tailgate being in need of repair made me leary to use it at all.
Working with Blake was great. He was friendly, easy to get ahold of when needed, and had a very smooth pickup and return process. His Caliber handled well in both the city and mountains and I was able to get a few hours into the mountains and back on a tank of gas. Highly recommend!
