•The car must be returned as clean as it is picked it up, unless otherwise stated. Please understand we cannot fully detail the car for every trip due to cost, but you can expect them to be acceptably clean. There is a $3 automatic car wash with free vacuums on 2111 W Fullerton Ave, which is just 5 minutes from the pick-up/drop-off location. There will be a $25 fee if the car is excessively dirty.
•Please make sure you are on time. There is a $50/hour late fee (per Turo) unless you OK it first.
•Return the car with the same amount of gas you pick it up with. You will be billed for gas and a $25 dollar fee if it is not the same. The car will usually come with a full tank. Please note that "full" means letting the pump come to a stop automatically and not stopping the gas yourself when the gauge reads full. It is very obvious when this is the case and you will be charged a fee.
•No smoking! You will be charged up to a $250 dollar detail fee (per Turo) for evidence of smoking.
•Feel free to drive through I-PASS/EZ-PASS tolls. You will be sent a reimbursement request within 30 days. There is no physical pass as it is tied to the plates. This means that you may have to pay for some manual toll booths.
•Please report any damage, wear and tear, or improvements you would like to see. Thank you!
Does this car bear a striking resemblance to a toaster?
Why is there a squeaking noise sometimes?
Even brand new belts tend to squeak on this car. It is an extremely common yet harmless issue on this vehicle. If it does squeal, it will stop with a little driving.
Why did the did check engine and warning lights come on?
9 out of 10 times this is because the fuel cap was not closed properly. This may happen after you have been driving for some time, not necessarily right after a fill up. It may also come on from a previous rental. You should only be alarmed if the check engine light is flashing as this indicates a more serious problem.

Car was good, the engine light came on while driving. Experience with the renter was less than ideal.
Loved the car! Smooth ride! Only thing was every time you started up the car it would make a squeaky noise then it would go away after about 20 seconds. Also the check engine light turned on, already advised the owner to check it out. Overall good ride thanks!
Christiaan was very helpful from start to finish. I needed to book a last minute car for a family trip and Christiaan gave quick responses and we set it up no problem. The pickup process was super simple. I had a family emergency that threw a wrench into my return plans, but he was communicative about what he needed to make it work and we were able to get the car back with as little delay as possible. Easy to work with and highly recommended.
Christiaan was easy going and pleasant to work with, and his Scion was clean and ready to go despite the new snowfall overnight. It even has new snow and ice scrapers. Overall it was a good experience.
