Honda Fits are awesome! They get great gas mileage - 27 city / 33 highway. And they have more space inside than you'd imagine: the back seats fold totally flat, and also fold up and back for tall items.
We have a Yakima Raptor rack on top, and another bike or two can fit in the back if seats are folded down. We keep an iPhone 5 charger and AUX audio jack on the dash board for plug-in and jam/navigation ease. We also have a droid charger in the glove compartment.
I'm located just 2 blocks from the N. Prescott stop on the Yellow Line MAX (light rail). The Yellow Line connects directly to Amtrak, Greyhound, BoltBus and downtown. I'm also on a biking street, just 2.8 miles to downtown.
Transit time from the PDX Airport is one hour; you only walk about 3 blocks total for the commute (via the Red Line, see photos for connection details, we love the the Transit app: http://thetransitapp.com). Otherwise a 20-minute, $35 taxi ride from the Airport.
Let me know if you need the following add-ons (no additional charge):
- 2014 Oregon State Wildlife Area Pass (for Saive's Island Beaches, FYI not the same as a Mountain Recreation Pass)
- Curious Gorge (hiking book about Multnomah Falls and surrounding Columbia River Gorge)
- Biking Portland book
- Bike helmets
- Rear facing carseat (or two). Self install.

Paige was fabulous and we fell in love with the Fit. Cup holders at human level, right on the dash = the best. Ever. Great experience all around and we will def book with Paige again.

The car was perfect for our afternoon trip and very easy to find from our hotel downtown. Would def visit Paul and Paige again the next time we are in Portland.
Paige was awesome and the car was fantastic. Paige is thoughtful and flexible.
I was a first time renter in a rush to get up to Oregon for a funeral. I didn't pay attention to some of the details and ran the mileage higher (ouch) and was a little late getting back which cost me. But that is the cost of learning something new and last minute.
I am delighted to put cash in the pocket of a family instead of a big-name rental company.
Paige was very accommodating on pick-up and drop-off of the car. The fit was great to drive around in Portland. I was able to get in and out of parallel spots a lot easier because of its size. The car was clean, housed a phone holder for navigation purposes, and an iphone 5 charger. There's also a bike rack on the top of the car for any bike enthusiasts. I highly recommend renting this car!
This was my first experience with Turo. Paige was so accommodating and helpful by quickly responding to questions. She is about a block away from the Max so it was so convenient to drop the car off and get to the airport. The car is new and in awesome condition. Thanks Paige!
