Good overall trip. Owner very helpful however car locked out manually and battery died leaving me stranded . My fault for leaving lights on but wouldn't have been so hard if manual key could access car
This car was a convertible which was awesome however this car had some obvious driving issues. Anything under 10 miles an hour and the car jumps back and fourth into gear. Driving in the Chicago traffic, stop signs and lights were horrific. I had such a headache from bouncing around after the trip ended. The speakers are blown in this car and the aux function doesn't exist even though the plug in was there. There was blue tooth which was useful but the music was crackled like I was out of range for a radio station. The owners were very nice and it was very easy to get the car and drop it back off but it was 0 fun driving it around.
I loved the flexibility and great service. It was so easy to book and access the car using the lockboxes. I am so glad I rented this cute and cost effective vehicle. I appreciated how the owners confirmed within 10 minutes and were always immediately responsive to my inquiries. I was also really impressed that they were able to push back my reservation time at the last minute so I could get to work on time. Overall I had a great experience. Just one concern was that the ac/usb adapter wasn't working so I could not charge my phone in the car. Otherwise it was clean! Just a heads up to other renters to make sure you use premium gas in this car.
I will be back in May. This was awesome. I'm recommending to friends and family.

The whole process was very easy. Oates & Perfetti made the pick-up/drop-off as convenient as it could possibly be. Only drawback of the car is the failing speaker that someone mentioned in a previous comment. It made it difficult to tune into the news during the commute, but since I didn't have the car for very long it wasn't a big deal. Overall, good first experience with Turo in Chicago. Thanks!
The hosts were really great about communicating and also very nice. The car was easy to find and the key lock boxes make it very convenient. The car was pretty good as well. Only lost a star because the speakers are going out in the car which is frustrating on a long trip and also the USB jack doesn't work that is in the car. It was clean inside though which was good!
Michael is very easy to communicate with. The car is conveniently parked and accessible. The smart car is fun to drive, easy to park and cheap on gas. Note: The terrible condition of chicago streets makes this a very bumping ride so be aware that it may not be pleasant in certain streets. Would recommend and rent again
Natalie & Michael are very cool and so is the car, when I first drove it, it was like being on a ride on Great America. I felt seasick after a 45 minute ride over bumps on the highway and roads, then I got used to it and felt like I was in a golf cart on steroids! Go for it and have some fun!
Michael was outstanding to work with. He was fast on the response, and flexible in working out a drop-off plan when my end time didnt work with him. His wife, Natalie, who I actually got to meet in the pickup, was nice, thorough, and helpful when I needed a second contact.
The car did well on both highway and in the city, and it was clean and well-kept. Great experience.
