The suspension is a little soft. I'm planning to have that worked on this summer. The side mirrors were recently sheared off by a falling oak tree. I was able to reattach them with screws and metal bands but they no longer fold inward. The tree also caused some dents in the frame that can't really be fixed.
This car requires premium fuel. Please keep your receipts when you fill up and put them in the envelope I have provided in the glove box. Write the odometer reading on each slip at the time of purchase.
I have a bike rack and trailer you may ask to use. The trailer can move up to 200 lbs of cargo. This weight limit is strictly enforced and you need to tell me what you are carrying and over what distance.
Parking arrangements depend on the specific time of day, day of the week, and season. We will decide on the place and time for each exchange.
Please save your gas receipts and write the odometer reading on each one when you fill up.
If you average better than 38 MPG during your trip and use less than 50% of the mileage limit, I will offer you a discount, the standard 1 week discount for short trips or the monthly discount for trips longer than a week. For long-term trips, this does not apply.
If you accrue more than $2 in tolls, I will need to bill you for cost plus a convenience fee of $6. That covers my time logging in to NC QuickPass to pay the toll.
Is this a manual?
No, it's an automated manual, which is like an automatic unless you shift into manual mode.

James was very accommodating and made pickup and drop-off very easy.
James is an excellent owner and very easy to work with. I personally did not find the Smart to be my favorite car to drive, but it runs well enough (better on highways than city driving), was clean, and got the job done.
I had a phenomenal first time experience renting from James. He was very accommodating when a family emergency rearranged my travel schedule. Prompt, professional, and organized. I would undoubtedly rent from James again.
I rented the Smart car for several weeks while staying with James through airbnb. It was easy to coordinate all the arrangements and James was great about picking me up/dropping me off as well. He was very organized about the rental. The car is clean, easy to drive, uses little gas, and you can park it anywhere! I wouldn't hesitate to rent from James again.
James is great! He was friendly, easy to deal with and very communicative. This was my first Turo experience, and I really appreciated the ease of this rental. The car was perfect for what I needed! It was clean, and easy to drive!
James was great. He made the renting process simple and easy and kept up communication throughout the rental period. He responded immediately to offer extremely clutch help when I encountered some rough patches. Highly recommended
This was my first time renting a car through Turo and I really enjoyed driving James' Smart Fortwo. The car is great on gas and was an instant conversation starter wherever I went.
James was also very accommodating, I had a family emergency around the scheduled time to return the car and James was really great about the whole situation. I would definitely recommend this car to any one in the Raleigh area.
