This car has plenty of power as it's got the man sized V-6 engine. Newer tires. Car handles great and is fun to drive.
When you are flying into Denver my car will be patiently waiting for you at Denver International Airport most likely in the Pikes Peak parking lot. (I can arrange to have it parked in short term covered parking with enough advance notice, this is real nice in Denver winters.) I will also let you know the exact location of the car by sending you 1) a current picture of the car on a GPS map with its exact location b) alphanumberic - i.e your Hyundai rental is located in C3 c) a picture of the car parked in its exact spot. I will do all of these or some combination of them. When you land head out to where the car is located I will unlock it for you. All you have to do is grab the keys and drive. This way is faster and more efficient than Hertz, Avis, or any of the rental car places. The only potential downside of this is it is necessary to pay for parking upon exit. At the Pikes Peak lot which has a shuttle to the main terminal 24 hours a day and leaves every ten minutes the cost is $8 a day. If parking ever costs over $24 I will immediately reimburse you for the additional cost. This car hardly ever sits for three days at these prices. If you are looking you should book it.
My wife keeps yelling at me to raise the price so take advantage of it while you still can.
Car receives all scheduled services on time. This car was bought from my winnings at the World Series of Poker in 2007. This car is 100% reliable and in tip-top shape. All services are performed at My Auto Parts and Service Center. The preferred service center of Lyft and Uber drivers. If you are a local Colorado resident who rents the car you are eligible to receive the rideshare driver discount at this location.
This car and all of my Turo cars come with a few things. It come with 3 multicolored LED charging stations for all adults, teenagers, and children with iphone, ipad, and android adapters.
Both cars also come with an audio jack so you are not stuck with Denver radio or my MP3 mix tapes which are left in the car.
My car has it's own blog and facebook fan page. www.thegeniuscar.com www.facebook.com/thegeniuscar - You can read about all the wild and crazy adventures. Hint if you like the page your odds of having your rental request go much higher.
This car comes free unlimited car washes from Waterway. The company has five locations across the metro area. I chose Waterway because they are the easiest. You pull up and tell them you have the monthly pass, most of the time they see the bar code in the window so you don't even have to tell them. You just get out and it is completely automated and completely cleaned inside and out. Even if I take the car over to DIA at 6:00 am and have it waiting for you for a 9:00 delivery if it rains or snows at 7:00 you will have a spotty car at that point. You never have to worry about having a dirty car!
Please tell me a little about yourself i.e. how many people are in the car, travel plans etc.
I'm happy to answer all questions. If you don't like any of my answers I let everyone cancel with no penalties in the first 24 hours. Between my three cars I've done over 50 rentals with absolutely zero problems and the car is always where you want it, when you want it.

The car is old and a fan belt is loose somewhere so there’s a whirling sound coming from engine. A little embarrassing if you’re driving to an interview or to an outing with people. Communication w Mike started well but he stopped responding once I picked up the car despite questions I had for him. He said he’d reimburse me for parking but has been unresponsive. I wouldn’t rent this car or from Mike again.
Very complex method to find out where the car was. There were about 4 steps just to find the location, including emailing and texting and messaging within the app. The car would also start on its own in the middle of the night. Very strange. Other than that, excellent.
My first experience with Turo, and have to say I'm very disappointed. We picked up the car with half a tank of gas, and even though Mike was aware of this, he asked us to return it with a full tank. We agreed only because he promised to issue a $20 credit back to my credit card for the hassle.
Well it has been over a week since the reservation ended, several more "I'll get to it" false promises by Mike, and still nothing. I wanted to write a positive review, but since my complaint still has not been address by either Mike or Turo, I felt it necessary to inform potential customers what they can expect.
Another annoyance was having to pay $16 exit parking when leaving DIA (it sometimes is $24). That should have been disclosed on the listing page before making a reservation.
This was my first time using turo and renting with Mike made this experience wonderful. Pick up and drop off was so simple i wish rentals were this easy. I definitely recommend and i would rent from Mike again
The car was reliable for the 700 miles we used it on our 9 day trip. It got us to where e wanted to go. However, the car was dirty and a lot of staines on the inside. Outside is just ok. For the most part his communication was good. But when we asked for an updated insurance card, we never received it. Car remote doesn't work. My final thoughts are for $10 to $20 more per day if I had to do it again, I would rent elsewhere.
Mike was great to work with. Once he confirmed the trip. He gave me the location of the car and I was able to return the car in the same lot with no problems. Make sure you realize you picking the car up at DIA lot, I didn't realize it untill after. Other that the vehicle ram well, very good trip.
The price alone is worth it. The car is quite spacious and the engine is completely solid. The convenience of it being in airport parking was a huge time saver. Mike was responsive and helpful. This could not be any easier. Highly recommended.
Getting the car last minute with easiness is exemplary service! Mike is responsive and very nice person, pleasure to talk to (text with). He jumped thru the hoops to accommodate my need for a car in very short notice. There isn't enough good words to describe my happiness with Mikes' car rental! Absolutely wonderful!
This particular car is Limited version of its kind, and it shows. Every person seeing it was very impressed. The car was not clean, but that was okay, he has free car cleaning service for anyone to take the car into, I simply didn't have time for it. I did not drive much, but it was very convenient to have transportation when I needed it. This car is wonderful to drive!
Full five stars!
Everything went well. Car drove great. Mike is very responsive. Do know you'll pay for the parking when you pick it up at the lot. I had to pay $24 to get it out of the parking lot. I knew I'd pay this fee but was surprised at how expensive it was. It's probably the same price as paying an Uber to take you to pick it up somewhere so I wasn't mad.
Mike coordinated well with us and the whole experience with picking up and dropping off the car went without any hitches. Would use his car again next time we are in Denver. Great for our first time use of Turo.
Very easy to pick up and drop off the car at the airport. The car was big and comfortable, and good for four adults on road trips. It's in pretty good shape for its age: a few signs of wear, but everything works correctly, and the car seems reliable. One thing to note: there is no audio aux port, in case that's important.
Mike was extremely quick when asking about questions before, during, and after the rental of the Azera. The vehicle was very clean and convinent for pickup regardless of time! When I visit Denver again, I will aim to have this identical rental due to a flawless experience.
Mike was a great communicator. We got our car at the airport and had a great trip. He was logical and understanding and the car ran great! Which was what it was supposed to do. Return was easy and smooth. Would definitely rent again.
Overall good experience. Communication with owner was swift. The car could be in better shape inside as previousl renters left bunch of trash, dirty floor mats etc. The car could use some cleaning, new viper blades and brakes were somewhat soft. Overall the ride was pretty smooth, plenty of HP, good gas milage. Pick up and drop off at pikes peak was easy.
We used Mike's 2007 Hyundai Azera and it was the perfect choice for us. I was initially worried about using Turo, but everything went down exactly like Mike said it would as far as picking up and dropping off the car, getting the keys, etc. The only complaint I had is that the previous renter left the car completely filthy. There was food everywhere and the outside of the car was covered in dust, dirt and mud. Mike was completely chill about the whole thing and super easy to work with. A quick stop at the nearby carwash and then a gas station with a vacuum solved this problem.
What you might not see from the photo is that the Azera has a sweet sunroof--perfect for cruising in the mountains--and for a 2007 it still has lots of life left. It's a little dinged up on the outside, but the tight suspension, brakes, acceleration and awesome gas milage more than make up for the scratches. One word of caution, because this is a 2007 there is no way to play your phone through the stereo, so come prepared with some type of backup--an MP3 disk would work, or just straight cds would be okay. We travel with a portable sound cube and just used that.
I'll definitely use Turo again and if I ever travel to Denver I'll be sure to book through Mike.
Mike's Hyundai Azera is a nice comfortable ride, clean, well maintained and smooth.
Process was easy, once I landed Mike texted me the car's location, and then a short shuttle ride to the parking lot, and there it was, totally beats any rental car counter.
Upon return, just head back to the parking lot, text mike what section you've parked at, take a picture of the odometer, and boom you're done.
Very easy process, pleasure to work with, excellent communication, never felt like I was left in the dark. As a bonus, Mike provided universal charging cables for iphone/samsung and a magnetic mount on the vent, made navigating the city easy.
When I come back to Denver, I will be a repeat renter!
Amazing experience. Requested a car be delivered to our hotel and then had a change of plans. Mike delivered to us at the zoo last minute and locked the keys in the car. He remotely unlocked it when we got to it and then let us leave the car in the airport. Just locked the keys in it and walked away. Couldn't have been any easier...
The vehicle is in excellent condition. It has a lot of horse power. You barely have to press on the gas and it you can feel how powerful it is. Mind blown as I am used to driving a Prius. 1 full tank took us to Denver, Monument, Boulder, and local trips. I wasn't sure if I wanted to rent this car because it is a V6, but the fuel economy was not terrible. I would definitively rent again. 10/10.
Although there was a problem finding the car, it was not Mike's fault. He worked with me and the Denver Airport Authority to get me to the car as quickly as possible. The previous renter and the DAA had misrepresented where it was parked. Mike did his best. The car was excellent on gas and was the perfect height for my 95 year old mother and 96 year old aunt to get in and out without problems. I would definitely rent from Mike again.
Mike was very responsive during the rental -- great work. The car, however, follows suit with the other reviews. It drove well and performed as expected but I was disappointed in the interior. There was a card deck sized hole in the driver side floor mat, and the interior looked much older than a 2007. If the price was right, I'd rent again... but it'd have to be a steal.
Awesome trip. Car was easy to access, Mike was very responsive and communicative with unlocking the car and instructions on pickup and return. The Azera is comfortable and powerful, a perfect cruiser for Colorado's open highways. Seat heaters are an additional bonus. My only regret is not getting to drive it more. Thanks Mike- I hope to rent from you again soon!
I had a wonderful time renting from Mike! The car was fun to drive, clean, fuel efficient, and well maintained. Mike is also extremely accommodating and service-oriented and was willing to go to great lengths to help me with my travel plans. He is responsive and always ready to help or advise. I would recommend this rental to anyone!
This was my first experience with Turo and I will definitely use it again! Mike was very responsive leading up to the trip. Unfortunately, on the day of the trip, the car wasn't where he said it was going to be. It turns out the people before us told him the wrong spot, so this was not entirely his fault. He was very responsive as we looked (obviously frustrated for the car) and tried to get help from Turo support. Eventually we found the car and the trip was perfect from that point on. Great car, great mileage. Perfect for driving around Denver and beyond. Because of our initial issues, Mike gave us a free day! Overall, very good experience.
This car was perfect for my trip. I was so impressed that I am now looking for an Azera for myself. Handled very well in the snow. The only downside was that the cigarette lighters did not work and we were unable to charge our phones while driving. Other then that the owner was very prompt with unlocking and messaging. I highly recommend this car for anyone exploring Colorado.
Mike was super friendly and delivered the car to me! The car was very smooth, easy to drive and the return process was very simple. I would recommend renting from Mike, his prices are great and everything went so smooth!
Mike's car was excellent. We arrived later than expected and his pick up process was super easy. He communicated great, our flight arrived much later than expected and he was thoughtful and accommodating. Would definitely rent from him again!
Everything went like clockwork- car was just as he represented. Car is older and the carpets are little spotty but it ran smoothly and felt reliable... It was easy to p/u at Denver airport. Comfortable and great first time experience. Highly recommend!
Nice vehicle at a great price! Mike was very easy to communicate with and made sure the rental went smoothly. The car was clean, well maintained, and ran like a charm. It was perfect for a quick trip to Colorado and a drive up to the mountains. I would definitely rent this car again if I had the chance.
Mike's car was great and Mike was even better! Great guy to work with and the car was unbelievable for the price. Very clean and reliable. I'll be giving Mike a call next time I'm back in Denver. Thanks Mike!
