Lilly is a really comfortable 5 seat sedan-- both the a/c and heat get to temperature fast which is great in New England. The hatchback always ends up holding more than I expect it to. Sometimes I throw my whole bike in there and I don't have quick release tires so it's really the whoooole bike.
Power windows and locks, and a sensor that makes it impossible to lock your keys in the car (very useful). Lily has a 6 disk cd player (which you can use to play all our old cds) as well as an aux jack to play music from phones, MP3 players, etc. We also have a GPS, EZPass, and lots of maps. The average mileage we're getting is between 43 and 50 mpg, and we'll give you a quick tutorial on how to maximize that if you so desire.
We have it listed for where we live, but sometimes we have flexibility about where we could meet you to exchange the car. Just get in touch with us and we'll try to work something out! It also has Somerville resident sticker, meaning you can park in any permit-only parking in Somerville.

Erin made pickup and dropoff a breeze and was incredibly flexible when my travel plans changed. The car itself works well, doesn't guzzle gas, and is pretty well maintained. Would rent from her anytime!
Erin was great. Having not driven in awhile (city life!) I needed to get to western mass for a wedding and had no choice but to rent a vehicle. Erin was super friendly, patient and even had a sense of humor as I attempted to navigate the Prius and was overall just very kind. She even parked the car as I struggled to parallel it upon me returning it! I would recommend Erin and her Prius to any Turo renter.
The car was great and I appreciate that Erin was able to accommodate a rather early start time and late end time. Erin also provided meticulous and easy to follow instructions for key pickup, involving a lock box, since she wasn't able to meet me in person. However, there appeared to be a typo in her instructions for opening the lock box, and it was only by trial and error that we were able to get it open. She also had accidentally silenced her phone and so didn't respond to multiple calls. As a result we were quite late setting off on our trip to get to a meeting. It seems, though, that these were one-off oversights and don't appear to reflect the vast majority of reviewers' experiences.
This was my first experience Turo and it was easier and more efficient that I even expected! Erin was very communicative which made my first time using the program a breeze. Also, the car was easy to drive and got great gas mileage.
Erin was super easy to communicate with and was really accommodating to my last minute change of plans. I also really appreciated the very well detailed instructions to pick up/return the car & keys. The car was easy to drive and exactly what I needed.

Erin's response time was quick and she was easy to contact. Overall Erin was super helpful. The car was in excellent condition and was a pleasure to drive
Everything went so smoothly and this car handled perfectly! Amazing fuel efficiency, drove really well! Erin sent me really clear instructions about pick up and how to use the car, couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thanks!
Erin made the entire experience simple and stress free. She even had her brother meet me at the local T stop for my convenience. The car was as described and ran well. I would definitely rent with Erin again.
Excellent RelayRide! This was my 1st time using Turo, and also my 1st time driving a Prius. I initially communicated online with Erin and Matt, friendly and helpful. When I arrived to pick up the keys and car, Erin gave me a 5-10 minute lesson on the Prius - easy and pleasant to drive. Hope to return for another great trip, from right in my neighborhood.
Super easy to book and pick up the car. Erin is very confidant, it was a pleasure to rent her car !
The amelioration point could be to have a cleaner car, the last renter leave a lot of sand a dirty and the seat.
Erin made it easy to pick up and drop off her Prius. It worked out perfect as a vehicle to supplement our move with the hatchback and fold down seats. Especially in Somerville on September 1 it was refreshing to find someone who had a vehicle available still! Also other people mentioned the car being a little messy and while it was slightly untidy, it didn't bother us at all since we were moving.
Also, as you'd supsect, the Prius uses virtually no gas, so even after a full day or driving around town I went to fill it up with what I thought was a small amount of replacement gas (2 gallons) and it brought the tank from nearly half full to completely full!
Erin was very flexible, friendly, super to communicate with and everything went smoothly. The car was a bit dirty inside, but as long as that doesn't bother you I would highly recommend! Easy drop off and pick up--Erin even met me near a T stop to make it more convenient for me. Thanks!
Erin's Prius (Lilly) was awesome! Good mileage and smooth to drive. There are great mixed tapes, aux cable and also a charging cable for iOS devices. Erin was super flexible in terms of pick up and drop off and the whole experience was seamless. Highly recommended !
Mike and Erin were so flexible with me and I so appreciated it! They were super easy going and communicative with my complicated plans. I wanted to rent Lily for a gig I had in Providence but I had a really busy day the next day so had to pick the car up the night before and wasn't sure how late the gig would go. They were very trusting and the car was a dream to drive!
