This Scion xB is very spacious. Stepping into the car is easy and you sit high above the road with great visibility. Gas mileage is 30-35 mpg and it sips Regular gas with its 1.5 liter engine and Automatic transmission. It has keyless entry with a key fob provided to you. Power electric windows and door locks. Steering wheel buttons to control the radio and sound volume. Smoking is prohibited in the car.
This car is very popular on Turo and I like to drive it myself on highways, so the odometer mileage on this Scion will soon reach 195,000 miles. It may seem high, but the car is in top mechanical condition. It doesn't burn any oil between oil changes. Transmission shifts smoothly. Engine runs smoothly and is good on power. Everything works including air conditioner and heater. Steering is precise without any "play" in it. Tires are very recent, warrantied by Kauffman Tire and currently have about 90% tread on them. Brake pads, rotors and shoes have recently been replaced and the car stops quickly. I maintain my cars on a pre-set schedule and all the maintenance is done properly on this car.
Car is equipped with factory radio that plays regular CDs as well as mp3 and wma CDs. It has a 3.5mm AUX input and I'm providing an aux cable. I've added a Bluetooth add-on to the factory radio for hands-free calling and listening to music from your phone or tablet. I've equipped this car with two cell phone mounts, power splitter and USB power adapters. Charging cables are provided at no extra cost to you for iPhones (Lightning and 30-pin), micro-USB (Android or Windows phones) and USB-C (newer Android and Macbooks). I've installed a Garmin Nuvi 2455 LMT GPS unit into one of the mounts, which has the latest maps and supports live traffic data from its FM receiver. As you can see on the pictures, even huge phones like ZTE zMax and iPhone 6 Plus can be comfortably used in the provided cell phone mount, but it will accept regular size phones as well. I'm including a decent radar detector for your safety. Included equipment can be unplugged if you don't need it. Car has ABS, Traction Control and Stability Control for your safety. I've purchased roadside assistance services for this car, so you will get quick help anywhere in USA in case if you're locked out of the car or if you'll happen to have a flat tire. Car is parked near a bus line for bus 140. Just take a Red line Marta train from ATL airport to North Springs station and then switch to bus 140 "North Point/Mansell P/R" and ride it to Encore Parkway bus stop, which is near North Point Mall in Alpharetta. Alternatively, you can take Uber of Lyft from North Springs Marta station to my car's location near North Point mall, which is a 10 minute drive.
I have uploaded many pictures of my car to Turo. Please feel free to scroll through all of them by clicking on the side arrows to take a look at the exterior and interior of the car.
I'm not interested in road trip rentals or in short term rentals less than 5 days. I'm mostly interested in local long term rentals of one month or longer and my "Miles included" number is higher than many other cars here. This means less risk for you having to pay for excess mileage on your rental. I have set my rates very low to provide an affordable rental for somebody who needs an everyday commute car, but doesn't want the hassle of car maintenance or repair. Rest assured that either I or my wife will meet you in person for both delivery and pickup to transfer the car keys and sign the paperwork. You will enjoy my reliable car and my quick responses to any of your questions or concerns. I can provide a bike rack if you need one.

The Scion has been a fun car to drive. It is equipped with different USB cables, Bluetooth and AUX connectivity. A small car that has so much to offer. Alexie and his wife made it easy to check in and check out the car. Communication is great. Flexible with time. Great experience overall.
Alex was a great guy, I'm just disappointed that there was a couple of problems with the car. For example on 12/10 the Right side passenger lock stop working at 3.55am I couldn't get out the car I. Then 2 hours later it did the same thing, I was told that there's a charger for iPhones when I plugged it up it does not work. What really got to me is when I was with my uncle on a outing and he is a formal police officer he ask me why do I have a police radar in the car I never knew what that was I thought it was a tracker or something, he informed me that I'm not allowed to have that I explained to him that it is a rental and it came with the car. I'm in total shock, after he said that something told me to check the insurance and registration card's there's an expire registration card and new one as I look at the insurance card it expired on 12/10/16. Anything could have happen on the course of me renting this car and I paid for insurance. The Milage meater is jumping all over the place, plus the speedometer is off a Little. This is my first time renting from you guys and to experience this kind of stuff is unprofessional when you put the car in reverse it makes this sound then when you switch to drive it stops.
The Black Scion turned out to be a great car! I rented it for nearly two and a half months. I never had a problem, and it worked well. I was amazed at how incredibly roomy it was inside.
Alexei is very accommodating and nice. He worked with me to make it happen. Unfortunately, this car was booked by someone else now, but I am going to rent his other car for the next couple of months or so. Alexei is great to work with and responds In record speed. This was my first experience with Turo, and very satisfactory. Thank you Alexei!
I could not thank Alex enough. He is very accommodating and I appreciated his prompt responses. Overall the car was great! It was a spacious, clean and smooth ride. I highly recommend renting from Alex and would definitely rent from him again! Thanks again!
Alex's scion was my very first relay ride. And it was perfect. He delivered it to where I was staying within a couple hours of renting it, accommodated me on the exact times I needed it, AND met me at the airport to drop off....all at a fraction of the price of uber/taxi around for days I would recommend Turo and Alex specifically to anyone and everyone. Thank you all.
