Easy to park and lots of space inside with this hatchback! Back seats fold down in half making it great for transporting smaller loads or packing in some gear to enjoy a day outdoors. A simple, roomy, great commuter car to get you where you need to go whether it's just to work, around town, or a trip to the lake!
Stereo has bluetooth and a USB plug in for your phone. Use your own cable or the one included in the glove box. Your phone will charge when plugged into it, but there is also an accessory socket. I've put a small cooler in the back with some water bottles for you to enjoy (ice not included) and a fun little guide book to Portland and Oregon map in the glovebox.
Please take care of the car as if borrowing from a friend and please try to be cautious of things that could scratch the windows as to not chip up the tint. You are expected to return the car back in the same condition, please remove all trash & vacuum at one of the many local self-serve carwashes if needed. This helps me continue to get the car to the next person in the same condition you will receive it as quickly as possible.
I'm a teacher currently enjoying the summer off, trying to make some extra money to pay for a little adventure van I just bought. If my available hours don't suit your schedule, let me know and we might be able to arrange something! Cheers!
** If requesting to book in September and beyond, please note that my availability for delivery times will change once school starts again the first week of September. After that, I will only be able to deliver on weekdays after school hours from 5pm to 9pm. Weekends will remain the same as now.
**PLEASE NOTE THOUGH THAT IF MY PICK-UP & DELIVERY TIMES DO NOT WORK FOR YOUR SCHEDULE, YOU CAN ALWAYS TAKE A LYFT/UBER TO MY CAR'S LOCATION INSEAD OF PAYING THE DELIVERY FEE. My car's location when not reserved is in East Portland about 10 miles from the airport depending on the route taken. I will arrange a way for you to easily get the keys! Then you can either drop off the same way and take a lyft back to wherever you need to go or if I am in town I may let you drop off within my delivery area, including the airport.. we can discuss options!
**Your delivery for drop-off and pick-up do not have to be the same place. Let me know what you need via message.
For PDX Airport deliveries: I'll meet you curbside outside of baggage claim under your airline sign. Make sure you are on the lower level (upstairs is for departures and often people walk outside up there unknowing). After your reservation is confirmed, please send me your airline and flight number. After you land, text me when you are making your way out, along with any kind of description of yourself or what your are wearing to make it helpful for me to find you!
For PDX Airport returns: I will have you park in long term parking and lock the key in the car (please text specifics on where you park) or meet you at the curb under your departing airline if I am able. Long-term parking is right next to the terminal. When locking key in the car, please put in the glove box on top of the parking ticket pulled for long term parking. Thank you!
Does this car have automatic windows and locks?
No! Welcome back to the dark ages. There are still cars where you have to do it yourself, hah. You have to roll the windows up and down, but just think of it as exercise (it's really easy). And the doors are open when the red of the lock shows. Don't forget to remind your passengers to lock their doors when they exit. It'll be like your living in '90's again (although this is a 2008 car, hah).
How does the trunk unlock?
The trunk locks and unlocks with the driver's door!
Can I pump my own gas in Oregon?
Nope. Still illegal for you to pump your own gas here. Use it as a break though. Check your map, yelp one of the many amazing restaurants around, or check your teeth for that green thing if you already ate! And no, you don't have to tip the person who fills your tank. Just pull up, turn the car off, and someone will be right to the window to take care of it all. *FYI, the gas tank is on the passengers side of this car!

Our first time with turbo, and it couldn't have gone better. Worth EVERYTHING to be picked up at arrivals door. Our 'host' was friendly, flexible, and terrific. Car was a champ that took us everywhere we needed and wanted to go.
Alayna was amazing! She was quite flexible, kind, and happy to support in a variety of ways. Every time we connected she sent positive energy our way and made traveling to Oregon a breeze. She provided detailed reports on the weather and the ins and outs of Portland lifestyle! Her car was very clean, got great gas mileage and had a special treat in the trunk that made the Oregon Heatwave tolerable. Pickup and drop off were seamless and her kindness shined from the start to the end of our trip. We were so fortunate to have her as our first experience with Turo and hope that every encounter after can live up to Alayna's amazing service!
