Q: How do I drive a Prius?
A: Its a hybrid so is partially an electric car. To start the car, press the brake pedal, then press the power button on the dash and you'll see "ready" next to the speedometer. Move the automatic shifter to R or D and see also displayed next to the speedometer when the car is "ready". To place the car in park, press the P button which is just above the shifter. During your drive the engine will turn itself on and off automatically and use the electric motor seamlessly which you'll see on the main screen on the dashboard. To turn off the car from on "ready" status, press the power button again and you'll see all the dash lights off/the car off.
Q: What's about tolls?
A: The car comes equipped with an E-ZPass toll transponder. Don't even worry about keeping track of reimbursements, you'll be responsible for the toll fess, but I will request reimbursement through Turo once I review my statement.

A: The Prius has seating for 5 adults.

A: Yes, absolutely. I'm a car guy and keep it clean regularly. The interior is free of any personal items. I ask that you return the car in the same condition as when you rented it.
Q: How do I return it?
A: Just be sure to return it with the same full fuel level as when you started your trip. Bring it back home, park in the same right side of the driveway. Please leave the car back in order, leave the key fob back in the center console, then send me message once you've retuned it :)
