Fully electric! MUST BE CHARGED-NO GAS! For local use only. Do not rent this car if you plan trips more than a few miles outside of Portland.
FREE DELIVERY is for trips 2 days or longer. For one-day rentals, pick up at my house or pay $15 (each way) for pickup and/or drop-off as described below. (Slightly better than Uber/Lyft to/from airport) (extra charges of over 10 miles)
Range on a full charge is about 50-60 miles... so for local use only, no road trips (unless you map out charging stations). Comes with charger for 240-volt 20-amp outlet, as well as standard 110v household. However, there are also many charging stations in Portland & Vancouver area (can be found online and via phone apps). I will demonstrate how to charge the car, and give you tips on finding charging stations. You do NOT need to return the car with a full charge.
We also have an AirBnB, which means I would drive you from the airport to your accommodation and will have Level 2 charging available at our house! Check it out at: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/15910855?s=ecvoziYo
FREE delivery includes a drive back to my house (close to airport), where I'll handoff the car. There is a 10-mile delivery limit from my house in North Portland. Higher distances will be charged at $1 per mile.
NO DELIVERY after 10:30pm, so please no flights arriving after 10:20pm. If you have a late flight, I can deliver the car to a Portland location in the morning if you can take an Uber or Lyft from the airport. If you have a late flight, feel free to book anyway and let me know so we can work out a plan that will work!
Bluetooth, USB input, audio input jack, CD.
Navigation, including locations of charging stations.
2012 Nissan LeafJeff's Nissan Leaf15514
Jeff was is what makes this service so much easier than a rental car: quick communication, easy pickup and return, clear instructions on how to use car and flexible. Getting to and from his place was easy with lots of public transit options. Car was clean and easy to use (but i have a new place in my anxiety chart for dealing with electric cars since they require regular recharging but it made me a much more efficient driver).
Jeff's Nissan Leaf rental was incredible. This was my first Turo experience, and it will be hard to beat. From start to finish everything went great... detailed instructions, car cleanliness, ease of communication, flexibility. This was also my first time driving an electric car. Jeff went over all the details, and it was a breeze. Thank you, Jeff, for a wonderful rental experience!
The trip went well. Jeff picked us up from the airport on time. The car was in good shape. Performance was as expected. It was easy to find a charging port for us. No issues at all. I'd rent from Jeff again
Jeff was super friendly and helpful in showing us the ropes with an electric vehicle. We also stayed at his Airbnb and the convenience and value from doing both can't be beat! This car is perfect for the city; if you plan to venture out though, a hybrid might be a better option so you don't always have to plan for charging station detours.
First off, everything went great logistically. What made the trip for me was the personal dynamic. Jeff is a helpful guy who adjusted to my last minute needs when the traditional options were not working out. I'd be glad to use him again.
I made a last minute reservation after my original Turo reservation fell through. Jeff responded quickly and was able to accommodate my request and delivered the car too! He basically saved my trip. Cool guy and very organized!
The car was in great condition and the free charging stations around PDX made it really cost-efficient. Only had to pay for a charge twice, which cost less than $5 total. To do a full charge takes between 30 - 40 mins depending on where you charge. Fred Meyer's and New Seasons stations are fastest.
If you decide to rent this car or any electrical vehicle, I highly recommend downloading the PlugShare app to locate all the charging stations nearby and help you map out your commute. The car has GPS too and shows you all the chargers in proximity to where you are. However, PlugShare is kinda like Waze so if à charge station is busted, the last user will update it on the app for you so you don't waste your time going there. It also sometimes shows you if a station is being currently used.
Hope this helps. I highly recommend renting from Jeff and using his environmentally friendly Leaf!
My second time renting with Jeff. He's very professional, reliable and super nice. He delivered the car to me and dropped me back home after renting at no extra cost. I will definitely be renting from him again.
