Click “VIEW ALL” below to read full description and also click on the “GUIDELINES” section for more helpful information toward a great Turo experience. **2012 MAZDA MX-5 MIATA** Awesome, head turning, beautiful, MX-5 Special Edition Mazda Miata Hard Top Convertible. Excellent Condition, Leather, Tinted Windows, Cold A/C, Low Miles, etc. FUN FUN FUN - ZOOM ZOOM! So much fun to drive (top up or top down). Wherever you go, you’re likely to get compliments. Also, you’ll definitely not look like a tourist in all those 1,000’s of mustang convertibles (almost every mustang convertible on Maui is driven by a tourist). MAINTENANCE UPDATES: New battery on 8/2018; New wiper blades on 1/2019; Oil change & Full Inspection on 10/2018. New tires on 9/2018; Brakes, front, 60+% remaining as of 2/2019; Brakes, rear, 50+% remaining as of 2/2019. **ARE YOU NEW TO TURO** If this your 1st Turo rental (and you have not already created a Turo account), you can save $25 off your 1st rental of my vehicle by creating your account using the following link. **** IMPORTANT NOTES**** 1. Premium Fuel Only (please save receipts). 2. Please do NOT drive on the back side of Maui! This is the portion past Hana between the Oheo Gulch (7-pools) and before Ulupalakua. This portion of the road is really rough and mostly dirt with large loose rocks and areas with 50+ years of pot hole patches; which this car is not designed for. There is a photo in the photo section clearly showing this road location. Also, Turo insurance will not insure you on this section of the road. You can drive to Hana (which is fun in this ride) but you just need to return back on the same road. 3. This is a fun TWO seater with a small trunk. Plan on a single carry on fitting in the trunk plus small purse like bags and a second carry on being on your passengers lap (a full size suitcase will not fit). If you have too much stuff you can have one person take an Uber with the bags. 4. Please be careful of the vehicles edges when parking. This sporty car is low to the ground and you will damage it if you get too close to the parking curbs. 5. The price also includes me washing the vehicle exterior after you are done (please vacuum the inside if you get it dirty). The automatic car washes here can damage the paint so I hand wash it. When you reserve this fun fun ride, please let me know that you are fine with the above 5 items. Thanks 😄 Thank you for reading, please also click on the “GUIDELINES” section for more great information.

Post-trip cleaning
Return the car hassle free, without worrying about cleaning up after your trip. Does not cover upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal. This is for the inside (outside is already included with your rental).


*AIRPORT ARRIVAL** If you would like an airport pick up; select OGG Kahului airport on your reservation. FYI, Kahului Airport is relatively small and it generally does not take long to get from the gate to when you will have your bags. So we recommend you choose a car pickup time approximately 15 minutes max after your scheduled flight arrival time. Please provide us with your airline name, flight number, and arrival time (arrival info only). This will help us track your flight and be ready for you when you arrive, regardless of if your flight is ontime, early, or delayed. Please message when you are here and ready. Initially, I’m usually in the “cell phone waiting area” with the Turo “share-my-location” feature turned on, awaiting your message... When I get your message indicating that you are ready, I will drive to pick you up, then you and I will head back to the cell phone waiting area where we will not be rushed by security while you get familiar with the Miata (such as, how to lower/raise the top, how to open the fuel cover, visor limits, key fob/starter, etc). Then we’ll head back to the baggage claim area where you can pick up your passenger and take off with the Miata. I will NOT need a ride anywhere. **AIRPORT DEPARTURE** I will meet you at the curb by the departures area. We plan to be there about 10-15 minutes before your scheduled return time to give you more flexibility on the exact time you get back to the airport. Turo has a “share-my-location” feature that we will turn on when we are close to or at the airport. This will let you see where we are and probably give you some piece of mind to know we are really there (this only works within 1-hr of the scheduled return time). It’s great if you can also turn this on when you are in route back to the airport. **RESERVATION / EARLY PICKUPS / LATE DROP OFFS** If you want to revise your arrival or departure times you must update the reservation in Turo so you are covered by insurance or you must stick to your original reservation. Note: we always try to block off the vehicle as “not available” for about 4hrs before and after your reservation to give us time to prepare the vehicle for you and any possible renter after you. So please let us know right away if you need extra time so we can remove the block if it’s not rented immediately before or after you. **OTHER LOCATIONS FOR PICK-UP/DROP-OFF** If you prefer to pick-up or drop-off the vehicle at a Kahului location, any of the following locations would be ideal, you can choose the location in Turo when you make the reservation: 1. Queen Kaahumanu Center (this the Maui Bus hub, so it’s ideal if you want to take the bus before/after). - 275 W Kaahumanu Ave, Kahului 2. Maui Mall (very close to the cruise ships). 70 E Kaahumanu Ave, Kahului 3. Maui Beach Hotel - 170 W Kaahumanu Ave, Kahului 4. Maui Seaside Hotel - 100 W Kaahumanu Ave, Kahului 5. Courtyard by Marriott Maui Kahului Airport - 532 Keolani Pl, Kahului **PREMIUM FUEL** -You will receive the vehicle with a full tank of gas (please return it full... PREMIUM FUEL). Best gas prices by far are at Costco (but you must be a member and the lines may be long so give yourself extra time if filling up at Costco). I offer a prepaid fuel option so you don’t need to worry about this. Again, premium fuel only please. **CLEANLINESS** The vehicle will be clean (please keep the INSIDE clean or vacuum if needed). Please do NOT wash the OUTSIDE (unless you will do it by hand and be carful). This cars sparkling red metal paint is in excellent condition and I prefer to wash it myself by hand. **MULTIPLE DRIVERS** Please do not put yourself at risk by letting someone else drive who has not been approved by Turo. Turo will allow you to add additional divers free of charge. I hear it may take a few days for Turo to approve drivers so it’s best do this at least a week before your reservation. **HAWAII LAW - SEAT BELTS** Wear your seatbelt. It’s the safe thing to do, and the police here are very strict about this. **ACCIDENTS** If an accident / vehicle damage happens during your rental contract; please contact your insurance company, Turo, and us. The Turo insurance card is in the glovebox (present the Turo insurance card for any accidents). **NO SMOKING!!! NO VAPING!!! NO PETS** Smoke & pet odor are very hard and expensive to get rid-of, so please please please, don’t smoke or allow animals in the car. If you do we will take the vehicle to a professional to clean out the smell and charge you their fee (approximately $200). Sorry, but if you or your passengers are smokers we request for you to just rent a different vehicle. **THANK YOU** When not rented we use this car for our daily driving (it’s so fun). So thank you in advance for driving our Miata with care and for treating if it was a new car you just received. For example, if you park “further away” or “on end spaces” you can help us minimize door dings & scrapes (please try to park in areas where door dings will be less likely). If you drive to the top of Haleakala, please use a “low gear” coming down the mountain to help prevent the breaks from overheating, which will both be much safer for you and extend the brakes lifespan. There’s a manual shifting mode with shift levers on the steering wheel making this even more fun. Thanks again.

Great little Miata for driving around Maui. We drove all over the island and out to Hana and back. Paul made everything super easy with drop off and pick-up curbside at the airport. We got a ton of comments and compliments on the car while driving as well. Definitely recommend and made our vacation even more memorable. Thanks!

We had such a great time in this car! We took it all over Maui, including road to Hana. Top was super easy to take up and down, amazing sound system and really fun to drive.

My wife and I rented Paul's Miata for our five-day trip to Maui. It was a delight to drive the Miata! The car is amazing: perfect for 600+ hairpin bends of the Hana Highway or scaling up the 10,000 ft Haleakala for a memorable sunrise / sunset. The car looks brand-new, drives well, and adds to the overall fun experience in Maui. It's a hard top too which is much better than a rag top. Paul's phenomenal: super friendly, responsive with clear communication, and has great local tips! Look forward to renting the Miata on our next trip over!
