Sporty, Fast, Good on Gas. SMART ForTwo Passion Convertible with Custom Black Leather Seats & Interior. Gets 40 MPG
Black with Silver Stripe Exterior, Black Top
New Continental ContriProContact tires, and floor mats.
A $30 cleaning fee is charged in case the car is not returned how it goes out. Sorry, but the next renter wants a clean car too! Much Mahalos.
** DUE TO NEW HONOLULU REGULATIONS WE CAN NOT DROP OFF / PICK UP THE CAR AT THE AIRPORT BUT WE DO PICK UP OR DROP OFF TRAVELERS AND BRING THEM TO THE CARS LOCATION AS PART OF OUR SERVICE, IF THIS SERVICE IS SELECTED. THANK YOUR FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Overall happy with the experience. The car doesn't drive like new, clunky transition between gears, odd at first, but you get used to it. Be warned, make sure you vacuum the car, Jeff hit us with a $30 cleaning charge for some sand on the front mats, thought that was a little harsh, but didn't want to contest.
The car was great on gas and a great price! Half way into my week long trip, the car alarm started going off sporadically. I contacted Jeff and he said this happens when the key remote battery is beginning to die. We returned to his house where he took the time to search for a replacement but didn't have the right size, so we ended up just taking the battery out of the key remote and locking the car manually for the remainder of the rental (which caused the car alarm to go off whenever unlocking the door). At least it wasn't going off when parked on its own anymore, though! One other thing that I am unsure of is how the pricing works. I ended up extending the rental for one additional day and noticed that the rate actually increased by $8 after I inquired with Jeff about extending it. I asked twice about honoring my original rate for the additional day but never received a response, which seemed odd because contact/respondence was fine and pretty prompt until that point. This lead me to believe that the price was manually increased after I inquired about extending the rental, which would be disappointing. Then again, I'm unsure if Turo automatically adjusts rates or if the owner controls it. I do hope it's the former, but never did receive an answer. Regardless, the car is great on gas and got us around the island. The air works (not like you'll really need it) and it even suits taller people (I'm 5'10"). You can tell it's been used well and it does feel like you're driving a manual car at times, but it works!
I'm very grateful to Jeff and his wife for the best customer service possible. Everything went super smooth. The car itself was super fun to drive around Oahu. It's quite roomy despite its sizes (I'm 6'4"), drives fast, has aux to play your own music and of course it's CONVERTIBLE. We've been cruising from one beach to another, exploring Honolulu & mountains at night and couldn't have a better ride. With everyday driving we spent only one tank of gas in a week (btw fill it up with premium gas, runs way better compare to regular). Be prepared that the car is few years old and you can't expect it to drive as brand-new, sometimes it takes a while for a transmission to switch gears. But overall everything was fine. Will definitely rent it again.
Loved using Jeff's car during our trip. It was perfect for my boyfriend and I. We rode the top down almost the entire time because luckily there was no rain our entire stay. Mileage on the car is amazing! Only had to fill up once before returning it back to Jeff. Parking was obviously easy, and a plus to fit in small spaces filled with tourists on the side of the road. Jeff and his wife are very helpful, and always around for assistance. Not to mention they're SO NICE!!! I would definitely rent this car on my next vacation here on Oahu. My boyfriend and I are even looking into buying a smart car for ourselves back home.
Jeff and his wife (Fernanda I believe) are quite professional in dealing with car rentals. Pick up and drop off is quite easy and flexible, and very quick turnaround for any inquiries via Turo's messaging system; I'd love to rent Jeff's cars next time i'm in Honolulu; make sure to bring the car back the way you found it, though, there is a cleaning fee (mine was $30) if you return it in messy condition!
Hello, Jeff is incredible. I booked the car for 3pm told him I was arriving from LA and he asked for my flight number "just in case" I landed at 2pm and he knew it! Propably checked ly flight arrival and he texted me to let me know he was waiting on the curb! Same for returning the car he was already at the airport waiting for me at checking. The car is so cool! Perfect for my fiancee and myself. We were able to explore a little bit the island and the car doesnt consume much! We loved the automatic softtop convertible. Music radio worked perfectly! I highly recommended it! Thanks Jeff!
Jeff and Fernanda were great, and were super helpful when we wanted to add a day onto our rental, and were quick to respond to us. The car that we got had really good gas mileage, it didn't even hit empty by the end of three days and driving all around the island. Overall an amazing experience and an amazing car!
Jeff picked us up at the airport on time .. He also showed us the way to our hotel and was very helpful as to what areas to go see. We want to thank him for the nice little smart Car that he rented to us ... Thank you Jeff
This is the perfect car to travel around Oahu with! The car drives well, is perfect for two people, and it was so fun to cruise around with the top down in! Plus we had the car for three full days and only used half a tank of gas! Jeff and his family were professional and kind. A great experience all around and will definitely use again when back on the island!
