Spunky - adj. spirited; plucky.
I love my car. It's a spunky 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8S 4 door sedan which gets 28/34 MPG (city/highway). It's fun to drive, handles well, and is easy to parallel park. The car is regularly maintained and reliable. During 2013, new brakes and Nokian eNTYRE premium all season tires were installed with warranty from Direct Tire.
The car provides most of the basic needs for a comfortable and enjoyable trip. The car's controls are intuitive and easy to learn once you locate everything. It comes with power windows, power doors, key fob for keyless entry, cruise control, A/C, heat, and a CD player.
I provide a USB adapter so you can charge up to 2 devices while driving. Just make sure you bring your own USB cables for any devices you want to plug in during the trip.
A stereo cable is also provided so you can connect your phone, MP3 player, or your music device to listen to your favorite tunes. Just plug in the stereo cable to your device's jack and hit the AUX button and you're jamming!
A GPS, which is a valuable tool for driving in the Boston area, is available for your convenience but please return it and the cable to the dashboard storage compartment. Just hit "Go Home" for directions back to my neighborhood where you can park the car. NOTE: Connecticut and some other states prohibit using a windshield mount for the GPS so be sure to remove it when driving in those states.
A convenience center behind the passenger seat includes a small trash can, Kleenex tissues, and botanical non-toxic sanitary wipes. Sanitary wipes are provided so you can wipe down before and after you use the car to minimize the spread of germs.
If you need one, a sturdy Yakima bicycle rack can be provided to transport up to 2 bicycles. Please send me a message requesting this and I'll be sure to add it.
Parking on the street is mostly available because I have a Somerville resident permit. However, pay attention to the parking restrictions and make sure you're parked in Somerville and not in Cambridge.
Please put gas back into the tank after you use it. The general rule is to put 1 gallon of gas for every 30 miles you drive depending on your driving style and how much stop & go traffic you encounter.
Although I love cats, I'm allergic to them so please pick a different car if you plan to transport one. Also, keep the car smoke & cigarette-free!
Feel free to send an email or text with questions before using the car or even ask for me to show you its features.
