Low mileage 2012 Mini Countryman S (turbo) with heated seats, huge glass sunroof, 6 speed manual transmission, HID headlights, and 4 bucket seats. This was custom ordered in grey on black with carbon fiber trim. Fun to drive, parks easily since its small, is all wheel drive, so it's great in the winter. A growing family finds me using this car less and less. I average less than 8k miles per year. It's in great shape, always serviced, and regularly cleaned. Car is located within 10 minute walk of the Fairfield Metro-North train station.
Is equipped with both the original and Lightning iPod/iPhone cables to play through stereo and charge, it also has run flat tires, huge speedo, and more! It gets about 25 mpg mixed city and highway driving.
For monthly rentals, car needs to be washed and detailed before return. Long term, multi-month rentals are also available.
This car is meant to have fun and bring a smile to your face, so please, no smoking inside and bring it back topped up with 89+ for the next renter!
While I can't pick you up at an airport, I MAY be able to meet you - or leave the car for you - at the Fairfield train station, which is on the Metro-North line, about 1:10 from Grand Central or about a 1/2 hour from New Haven.
IMPORTANT - Please read:
I've been renting with Turo for 2+ years now, and I've had many, many positive experiences; however, please understand a few things before you rent via Turo (in general or from me). I'm really easy to get along with, but this is my PERSONAL car that I take great care of and expect the same from my renters.
1. Please plan to pick up and drop off the car at an agreed upon time. I work, have a family, and have plans that I make around those times. If something comes up, please let me know and we'll work it out, but please ALERT ME IN ADVANCE so we can make arrangements. There is a $50/hour late charge that Turo charges if you're late, and if we don't make prior arrangements, I support that policy.
2. Except with the POSSIBILITY of a pickup or drop off at the local train station, I can rarely make other arrangements to meet somewhere (please see #1 above); please understand this when making your rental. Please do not make a reservation and then ask me to meet you somewhere a few hours before you pick up the car. If I could I would but it's not possible. Likewise, if you need me to meet you at the train, I NEED TO KNOW when you request the rental so I can make plans to accommodate that request and so you're not left hanging. Again, I work and have a family so it's tough for me to make last-minute plans. There are also times you may rent when I may be completely unavailable but can make other arrangements and leave the car for you.
3. If you cannot care for the car in the right way and treat it well, please don't rent. I expect it to be returned in the same condition I gave it to you. It needs to be as clean as I left it for you. Leaving it filled with garbage and debris isn't cool and will earn you a bad review and possibly a cleaning fee.
Ok, that's enough. If you have issues with the above I HIGHLY recommend you rent from a big box rental company like Avis or Hertz who don't care if you beat their cars up or not. Again, this is my personal car that I worked hard to buy and take great care of - which is why people like to rent from me. Read the reviews and you'll see!
