The brakes were screeching/squeaking the whole time and when I went above 65 mph, the car felt a little shaky. Once the brake pads or brakes are replaced, I think this would be an ideal inexpensive rental. This is my third time renting from Michael, and he is always great about leaving the key and the car in a convenient place and is super responsive and communicative. A great lender.
This was my second time renting Michael's car. Loved the easy + flexible pick-up and drop-off, and the price. The car has no frills, but I had no problems with the car, and it's a great value. Would definitely rent again.
This car needs new tires. I got a flat a few hours into my reservation and luckily wasn't hurt--I was on the highway... it was at that point that I realized the tires were in dire need of replacement as the tire basically disintegrated in five different spots. If new tires are put on then the car is a suitable basic rental at $36 a day.
Michael made it easy for pickup and drop off. He was quick to respond to messages which was helpful. Car was able to get me to NH and back without any problems. Stereo and AC worked. Car was a little dirty and there were a few items in the trunk, but overall a good experience and would use Michael's Focus again.
Michael was very easy to deal with. The car was very basic but absolutely served its purpose. Having the EZ-Pass certainly made it easier getting through the toll roads. Only negative was that the cigarette lighter was broker so we couldn't charge a phone as we drove.

Outstanding experience. Car was a joy to drive and great on gas mileage which was a huge plus. It also had an EZ pass and an aux cable which are two essentials. Michael was extremely flexible and responsive when it came to pick-up and drop-off times. Will definitely be renting again.
If I ever need a car in Massachusetts I will look to rent this car. Mike was really easy to work with and I really appreciate his flexibility with the pick up time. This car was also great on gas. The aux input makes this rental experience beyond what I expected.
We had a great experience with Michael's car. He was very responsive, flexible, and easy to get in touch with. The car doesn't have a ton of bells and whistles but was perfect for our purposes - good mileage, ran smoothly, good price-point, and easy pickup/ dropoff location. Would definitely rent again!
Mike is a nice guy and very responsive. The car is a workhorse, old and reliable, but don't expect luxury. No cruise control, manual windows & locks, & we could not get power from the lighter to our GPS, so it became useless. Even so, the car could still be made attractive it were maintained and cleaned better between drivers.
I have never used Turo before but after renting a car for 2 days from Mike I am a 110% fan. He was easy to work with, a short walk from the MIT campus, and flexible to let me return it early. The car was basic (no cruise control) but easy to use and I really liked the price! Everything went as scheduled and was clear upfront. Thanks Mike!
Michael is communicative, flexible, and friendly! Pickup and dropoff were efficient. The Focus is clean and comfy. It's also really quiet at speed, is poised, and gets great AM reception!! Michael is a great addition to the Turo community!
