This VW bug is in great shape; I've taken her on multiple long-distance road trips over the 3 years that I've had her, and she's handled them beautifully. She's got a few very minor paint scratches and barely noticeable dents on the bumper, but I can assure you they are only skin-deep. :) She's also very easy to spot when you're trying to remember where you parked your car!
2010 Volkswagen New BeetleGena's Volkswagen154.531
We had a great time visiting New England in Gena's Beetle, although, not "NEW". This car has over 90,000 miles on it, however, I think it's fairly new to Gena. Gena had recently had the car serviced with new tires, balancing, etc. the car functioned great for us as we spent 5 days with it and racked up around 1,000 miles. Gena was very pleasant to work with and communicated with us well by text. We were able to pick up and drop off the car in a location which worked well for both of us. I haven't driven a Beetle since my 1976 Super Beetle that I sold in '80. Beetle's are roomier now, have more power, grab the road much better, and have other improved features but still ride about the same way my '76 did.
Gena was very friendly and flexible. Communication with her regarding pick-up and drop-off was super easy. The Beatle is easy to drive and the seats are very comfortable. However, unfortunately our experience with the Beatle was not too good: Both front tires were extremely worn out to a point where the wires were already showing on one of them. We had to change that one to ensure our personal safety. On our way back to Boston the oil pressure signal went off and we had to stop immediately to get new oil since there was close to zero left in the engine. Those things could have easily been taken care of before renting the car out to us. Luckily those are all things that can be fixed and once they are, the car will be save and you will have a good time driving it. Gena was very sorry when she heard about our troubles and said that she will have the car inspected as soon as possible.
Gena was super flexible and really easy to coordinate pick up and drop off with. Overall a good experience at the price- but the car did have some pending maintenance issues I'd have liked to know prior to booking
This was our first trip to Boston and we enjoyed it a lot! Gena was very sweet and recommended a couple places when she heard we were there for the first time. Very good instructions about the car. Pickup and drop-off locations were safe and the whole process was really easy. When we were picking it up, based on our previous turo experience, we expected the car to be ready as soon as we got there. But Gena needed to clean it out a bit. Which was totally fine! Thank you Gena! Very friendly and great car!
Gena is the most amazing person I've met and her car is the most amazing one I've driven! I wanted to keep it forever! Shes a hard worker and still manages to be flexible with pick up and drop off which i admire and she gave me a quick tutorial of the car which was awesome. I will definitely be renting again!
Gena is fantastic and made this car rental experience extremely smooth. If I need to rent a car in Cambridge again in the future, Gena will be my first choice.
About the Trip:
I picked up the car on Saturday 18 February in Kenmore Square, Boston, and I returned the car early in the morning on Tuesday 21 February at 325 Franklin St, Cambridge. The car was a lot of fun to drive and was clean. Gena is very responsive and responded to all of my texts almost immediately. She was flexible in when and where I could return the car, and answered all of my questions about driving around Cambridge / Boston. She is very friendly.
- Gena is responsive to messages and accommodated my requests for pickup / drop off of the vehicle.
- The car is fun to drive.
- The car was clean on the inside and has no significant damage to the outside. There are very minor scratches around one of the wheel wells.
- A previous renter misplaced the Cambridge parking permit, so it was somewhat inconvenient to figure out the parking situation. For this reason, I give the rental 4.9/5 stars, which is close enough to 5 that Gena should definitely be a top choice for you!
