The car: Strong little turbo diesel. Amazing gas mileage (up to 35 city/40 highway) comparable to a Prius but much more stylish, way more fun to drive with the 6 speed manual transmission.
The goodies: Push button start. Touch screen sound system with bluetooth, aux input, and iPhone/iPod cords in the glove box. Heated front seats, touch sensing door handles for locking and unlocking (literally never need to take the key out of your pocket). Decently sized trunk for luggage. Back seats fold down to offer enough space to haul a small washing machine. Hitch available for pulling small (tiny) trailers and an easy-to-assemble bike rack is usually in the trunk. Great car for road trips or daily driving. I use it for camping and I recently put some bigger tires and a roof rack on it. So far it doesn't seem to affect the mileage very much.

2014 Volkswagen BeetleDaniel's Volkswagen15519
Super accommodating. Real fun car, gutsy, and efficient. Coolness factor really setting the bar.
Daniel, a respected veteran, was very business like, communicative, on time, and made everything happen smoothly. Never knew I would like a vw bug as much as I did. Fun car to drive and very fuel efficient. Have no complaints what so ever. Daniel came through with a short notice and am very thankful.
Daniel is awesome, he has a lovely family, and his VW Beetle is the perfect car for zipping around Portland. He is a great communicator and prides himself on being a solid Turo ambassador. I hope to rent from him again soon. Thanks Daniel!
Daniel was awesome and very accommodating. That little VW bug is so much fun to drive and gets incredible gas mileage (it's a diesel). I will definitely be looking for this car next time I'm in town. Thanks Daniel!!
Daniel made everything very easy and our first time using Turo excellent. His car is great and as described. He even worked with us on pick-up and return times. Highly recommend using his services. I will try and rent his beetle again if I end up in Portland.
Daniel was a perfect host. Picked us up at the busy airport and dropped us off at a busy airport. On time and thorough. Very good experience and the 'TurboBug' was a blast to drive! Highly recommended!
Absolutely loved my experience renting Daniel's Beetle. The car was great - clean and VERY fun to drive. The keyless entry and start system was very slick and fun to use, and the sound system sounded great, plus there were connectors for both type of iPhone jacks.
Daniel was great to work with and was very accommodating and helpful with negotiating where to meet up. If you're going to be in Portland and are looking for a fun car to drive, I couldn't recommend Daniel's Beetle more!
The VW bug was perfect for I what I needed while I visited the Portland/Salem area. The manual 6-speed makes the Bug get great mileage. I had several compliments on the Volkswagen. Would I rent this car again? Absolutely!! Daniel made it very easy to work with.
