Nice CLEAN in every meaning of the word transportation. Joy and fun to drive without a smell noise or heat or petroleum. Plus enjoy free 1-2hours meters and county owned garages. Best places around shopping and convention centers including airport are reserved for EV. Oahu has plenty free and paid stations all over plus a couple free fast charges in Nissan dealer located very conveniently so you can go almost every where with a little planning and without worries. Many hotels already have charging stations. Charging cable comes with the car so that if you stay in the house you can plug in as well Also the hachback trunk and the folding seats give you a lot of room and convenience for beach gear, cooler and whatever comes along. I also have a new CHILD SEAT up to 4 years old that you can use at your on discretion and risk by request, on first come first served basis.
MY CARS ARE SMOKE AND PETS FREE AND I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.
2013 Nissan LeafMIHAIL's Nissan15549
Working with Mihail is always simple so I refer everyone to him. Friendly, accommodating and great cars!
This was a great rental experience! Everything went exactly as planned. Mihail's communication with me was top notch! The car worked perfect and Mihail gave detailed and complete instructions on its use and charging facilities available. I woukd definitely recommend and will use again.
Renting from Mihail was an amazing experience. He is such a friendly and patient guy! Pickup and drop off was so easy. I had to take a Lyft to get to the vehicle, but since Mihail offers free delivery, he didn't make me fill up the gas tank when I switched out for the Toyota RAV4. I ended up having to switch out the Leaf because I needed to travel further distances on a limited schedule and didn't have time to wait around for the vehicle to charge back up. He ended up switching out the car for me my last three days of the two week rental. He met up with me at midnight even though he had to be at work at 7:30 AM. We were having issues doing the exchange via the app, but Mihail still let me borrow the car and I was able to PayPal him afterwards. He discounted my rate too. Having driven the Leaf, I don't think I would ever rent an EV again because of how much time I spent waiting for fast chargers to be available and then charging it back to at least 97% took at least 30-40 minutes each time depending on how low the charge was. Unless you have a way to hook it up to a personal outlet overnight which I didn't, I would stick with a hybrid or gas rental, but if you aren't traveling far distances and are staying in only one area with ample access to chargers, the Leaf is a great option to save on gas money. Many chargers are free, but I still ended up paying about $45 total in charging fees at certain charging stations when a free fast charger wasn't available and I was in need of a charge. It was pretty stressful worrying about running low on a charge while driving, but the vehicle itself was pretty cool to drive because it was so smooth and quiet.
Despite my challenges with the Leaf, I definitely recommend renting from Mihail because he was so accommodating and helpful and he had such a warm, genuine and friendly attitude when we met in person to exchange vehicles.
Highly recommend both the Leaf and Mihail! The car was clean, communication effective, all around top notch experience. This was my first time using Turo and will definitely use it again. Mihail provided plenty of info regarding charging the car and we only had to pay for a charge once, and that was only due to being very conservative. Excellent option for Oahu!
Mihail was a great person to rent from! This little car is so fun to drive and was in mint condition when it was dropped off. He was so helpful with delivering and picking up the vehicle along with helping us find charging stations. And as long as you're okay spending a little time during your day (if you take a big trip) to charge your car, I would highly recommend picking this one!
This car was fresh, clean, fun to drive, and Mihail delivered it to me, so I didn't have to figure out how to get the car. An electric car for earth day! I loved driving the Leaf, and completing the little trees is addictive. I had been using rental cars lately when I need a car, and they all had different funky smells (ugh!). I will now use Turo and rent Mihail's cars whenever possible.
Mihail was amazing! He's the best person I've ever rented from before. Our Leaf was a fun car, but we were not really good with charging it up (as its all electric) and Mihail happily transferred our cars for us to his other available car he had at the moment. But, he explained how to use the Leaf very well! I would've loved the car more if I could have a home charger! Mihail was very understanding and so nice.. Definitely will rent again!
Charging stations all malfunction, Honolulu needs to update for electric cars quickly to meet the man's situation made the trip and the charging outlandish but the car and the owner both perfect 100% helpful courteous over and above five star renter , I'd give the city charging stations in Honolulu zero star . But he was an awesome help when needed.
Mihail was super! I had never driven an electric car before this one and he was very helpful in giving us all the information we needed about charging the car and managing the battery life. This is definitely a great option for getting around the island!
Mihail was super accommodating with anything we needed. Very nice guy...so glad that we rented from him for our first Turo experience!!! Would absolutely rent from him again the next time we are in Oahu!!! Thank you again👍
Great car and great experience! We stayed in central Waikiki and the car was very useful. Communication with host was very good and his instructions were clear in how to get to the car and return the car. However, while the car ran perfectly and there were a ton of charging stations all over the island, you really do have to plan ahead. There are limited free fast chargers so you'll more than likely get stuck charging on a slow charger - which takes like an hour or so to even charge to 80%. We ate many many meals while charging. The range is anywhere between 50-80 miles depending on terrain (or North Shore) but we loved the fact that it was zero emission and that there was free parking on meters under 2 hrs in central Waikiki. Would likely rent again in Hawaii, but likely not anywhere else since we were always worried about the range!
Mihail is a really friendly guy. He explained everything about the leave and showed me how it works. He was very flexible and communicative. He answered all my questions and was even willing to help me out with another issue I had during my stay at O'ahu.
I am planning coming back to Hawaii next year and I will surely rent one of Mihael's cars again. I strongly recommend him.
We were a bit afraid at first about renting an electric car for the first time, but it was a great choice in this city, since we were able to charge the car at the place we stayed so we didn't need to charge it anywhere else so it made things easier. You can plan a bit your day ahead and you will have no issues. We stayed in a very centric location though. Mihail seems like a very cool and laid back guy, he brought us the car to the place where we stayed and kindly explained us how to use it and all the details, he also kept in touch with us. Great experience . We would definitely recommend 100% to rent this car. It was a good experience.
It was a great trip. Mihail is very reliable car owner. The car is well maintained, clean. Driving has been super comfy and easy. Mihail showed us some hidden charging stations which we probably would not find on our own. Anyways, there are many charging stations over the island, so you do not have to worry about it, but it is nescessary to plan your trips as driving up to the hills can drain the battery quickly ( but you will recharge when driving down). Fast charging stations are great, it will recharge the battery up to 80% in 20 mins. Overall it has been great first and hopefully not last experience with EV.
Mihail was an excellent host, very helpful and nice! The car was great except you need to know where the charging stations are and need to plan a bit better if you want to go up to north shore! Overall it was a great trip though, thanks Mihail!
One of the best travel experiences of my life was renting this car. The owner could not have been more helpful with the pickup and drop off of the car and couldn't have been an overall nicer person as well. Will definitely rent from him again, thanks!
Perfect. Mihail was just fantastic. He met is at the airport and explained everything perfectly about the Nissan Leaf. I recommend him and his cars to everyone. Avoid the big companies like budget, enterprise etc. you won't get service like this from those big companies. We will be using the Nissan Leaf next year. Mahalo Pete and Belinda Ps also his prices are phenomenal
Great car and owner! I will rent from again on my next trip! The car perks like no gas and ample reserved parking is a huge plus. I was able to cover the whole island with no issue of worrying about finding a charging station.
Mihail has been terrific with making the entire process of something new like Turo feel as comfortable as using a service like Uber and AirBnb. My girlfriend had rented through him previously and I had to get a car to do two days on the north shore for a dive certification since I live in town. Renting the Leaf does have some additional planning to consider. I had to make the effort to plan out my charges since chargers are limited in the north shore. With that being said, I was never in any serious worry of running out of power and the Nissan dealerships make it easy and fast to charge up to 80% within about 15 minutes. You can find other DC chargers on island but I didn't see the point in paying for it when Nissan had it for free. Overall I am very satisfied. I will most likely rent from Mihail again. Renting electric is actually cheaper since gas is not a factor that you have to pay for.
Communication with Mihail was very easy. He dropped off and picked up the Nissan Leaf when scheduled. He was very accommodating and provided a full overview of how to charge the Nissan. He also provided a map of all the charging stations on the island. The car was very clean and easy to drive. I would definitely recommend renting from Mihail. I already have my next rental booked with one of his other vehicles. 5 star service.
Mihail was fantastic and delivered the car with a 100% charge. He was excellent in explaining all the features and how to use the car. He also provided a handy link with all the chargers on island. Would highly recommend renting from Mihaill!
Mihail was very friendly and generous, providing us with a great little car, clean and well maintained. He lives the Aloha spirit and we were fortunate to have him to rely on for our first visit to Hawaii - thank you, Mihail
Mihail was very kind and helpful to me and my girlfriend. He also picked us up from the airport. The car was clean and ready for us to use, and it was my first time to try an electric car and he explained to me all that I need to do to drive this car. I had a blast and got around the island just fine as long as I planned ahead of time to charge the car at charging spots around the island. Mihail also sent us a link to know the locations of the charging stations. Majority of the charging stations are free but some you do pay so is best to plug it in to an outlet over night. I only had to pay once and it was $6.50 which is nothing and it was a quick charge station, so it only took about 30 min and then we were on our way. It is free at all the Nissan dealership which they also have quick charge stations, but always ask the front desk for help if you don't know how to plug into the quick charge station. Other then that, if you want an eco friendly car to get anaround the island and good service, Mihail is the one to depend on. Much Mahalo and Aloha Mihail.
We had a great time and enjoyed not having to pay for gas! Never went below 50 percent battery and got everywhere we needed to go! The owner was very nice, dropped off and even picked up the car right on time and even sent us a map of charging stations throughout the island, just in case. Thank you!
