Boy, this Rio can really cruise! 😎 It's the perfect, affordable little rig. The AC will keep you cool and you'll save big on gas.
One note, my car is not powerful enough to make it to the Mauna Kea summit or visitors center. If you plan to visit the summit you can book a tour or rent a 4 wheel drive for the day. Thank you!

Everything was as advertised. The car was clean and reliable. Nothing fancy, but everything worked (just what we wanted / needed for our Big Island adventure). Only criticism is we needed to drop John off at his residence, not a big deal and basically on our way (close by the airport, near Jacks Dive Locker) but have have the kudu of other Turo renters exchanging the car at the airport and finding their own way back. Again not a big deal at all. Would have been 5/5 otherwise! Thanks John!
John-Mark was friendly, gracious, and helpful. Excellent communication. I greatly appreciate his flexibility when I ran into issues with my return flight. Highly recommend renting with John-Mark. Thank you!!!
John-Mark made my trip so easy! Pick up and return to and from the airport meant I had no dramas at the beginning and end of my trip. The car was low key but perfect for what I needed - a way to get from A to B. Being a smaller vehicle, it also meant it was much easier to navigate the winding roads and tiny parking spaces of Kona!
Thank you JM for your great services. Airport pickup and dropoff were excellent. The Rio car has some outside wear but ran very well. JM is super accommodating if there is any concern. His attitude is A+. Mahalo!
John-Mark was very pleasant to deal with, and gave us a warm welcome at the airport. He was on time, flexible, and easy to connect with. The car's not a sports car, or a fancy SUV, but a practical and economical drive, with a few little scratches/dings already in place, which John-Mark acknowledges, and actually, it takes the edge off a bit (I always find my anxiety goes up a bit if driving a perfect, shiny new car!... I don't want to be the first person to put a scratch on it!). Great little car to go around the island with, and good on gas! A lot of 4x4 roads are great walks too, so this did not limit us at all; if anything out experiences were enriched by this. An added and unexpected bonus: the non-flashy rental seemed to help us blend in better with the locals... or rather, we felt like we didn't stick out so much, which provided us an added level of comfort. Mahalo John-Mark, for being a part of our island experience.
John-Mark was away on business during my stay, but had arranged for a friend (Josh) to handle the car pickup and drop-off. Both John-Mark and Josh were communicative and easy to coordinate with. The Kia was bare bones, but I didn't need anything fancy. It got me around the island to the places I wanted to go with no issues.
I recommend renting from John-Mark if you want a nice little commuter vehicle and a worry free rental experience.
