The perfect wagon! This is a fabulous family get-around-town or get-out-of-the-city vehicle. Plenty of room for four adults but there are five seat belts if you like to be packed in. OR fold down the seats for enough space to transport gear, a bike or a bale of hay (use a tarp, please!). There is a Yakima box and one bike rack on the roof. Smoke-free. Pet free.

Note: Volkswagens are NOT high clearance vehicles like Subarus. They are NOT appropriate for off-road driving or non-paved roads.

Another great rental experience with Kirsten! Being able to use her car was a big help to me yesterday. Kirsten was friendly and communicative - as she always is!
This was a great car for our Portland trip. Kristen left us some picnic supplies and a cooler in the back of the car which came in handy on the days we were out hiking. There is a phone charger adaptor in the glovebox which is great if you bring your cord. Overall the car ran well, gas efficient, spacious and had cold air-conditioning. Kristen was very responsive and a clear communicator. I would recommend renting this car and would rent from Kristen again.
Kirsten was easy to communicate with was flexible when I needed to change the drop-off location. The car was clean, roomy in the rear for gear, and the key lock box easy to use. Overall a solid rental!
Very reliable car and plenty of storage. It was perfect for our family and getting to parks with strollers etc. Kirsten was very friendly, communicative and easy to deal with. I would Turo with her in the future for sure.
We had a great experience driving Kirsten's Passat. The vehicle was in great condition and came as advertised. Thanks to Kirsten's timely communication, we had no issue finding and returning the car. She even went out of her way to drop us at the closest rail station when we returned to Portland. We were very content with the whole experience and would highly recommend renting from Kirsten!
It was great experience renting from Kirsten. She is willing to accommodate, even when our train was 8hrs late. She is very responsive in answering any questions you might have. I had no issues with the car, and it is kept in great condition. The cargo box was extremely useful to carry extra luggage or food. Just remember to pull down all sides of the cargo box to lock it.
Kirsten's VW Passat station wagon was the perfect car for my trip to Oregon for a friend's wedding. It got me safely from Portland to Salem, then traveled on the scenic byways up around Mt. Hood. I traveled over 500 miles in 5 days, and the car was a great "home base" for me. It also had ample room for transporting friends and wedding gear to Salem and back. The roof rack was especially helpful! Communication with Kirsten was a breeze - she was responsive via text, and accommodating when I asked to drop off the car about 5 hours earlier than scheduled. Highly recommended! Oh, and the CD's were awesome!
Although it was a challenge with the system to add extra drivers, the trip went really well. Kristens car worked well and it was spacious the car top carrier was excellent and her maps and binder were helpful. it was easy to pick up and drop off. I would rent this vehicle again.
This trip was very comfortable, convenient and enjoyable! The Passat was perfect for our trip to Seattle, WA! The extra storage on top, along with the bike rack made planning our trip extra convenient with all the extra space inside the car, and also having the option of bringing our bikes! Kristen was speedy at getting back to us and had great communication throughout the entire trip! The car ran smoothly and comfortably for the 3 hour drive, and also did pretty good on gas! I would definitely rent this vehicle again, and would rent from Kristen anytime! Thanks again for the rental!
This was absolutely a great experience! Kirsten was extremely accommodating with what we needed. Her flexibility made our trip so much easier. Her binder full of ideas of what to do and where to go in the Portland area really helped as well. The gas mileage on her car was also really exceptional! The response time she had with us was also really rapid. I do not believe that it took her an hour to get back with our inquiry; she responded within 30-45 minutes which made communicating with her a pleasant experience. When we're back in the Portland area we will definitely be renting with Kirsten again! I hope our trip has put Kirsten and her fiancé that much closer to their goal of saving up for their wedding! Cheers!
Kirsten is great to work with! She was quick to respond; answered any and all questions. Arriving with my car right on schedule, the Passat was clean and drove like a dream; plenty of room in the back for an adult trike pick-up and delivery. Gas mileage was much less than I expected.
Overall...a terrific experience. I will certainly rent Kirsten's Passat next time I need to have transport by personal combustion engine! :) . Thank you!!
Kirsten's VW was a great car for our family to travel out to the Oregon coast. It was a reasonable price, WAY cleaner than our own car!, and in great shape. The Star Wars mad libs hiding in the rear console were a hit with our 7 year old. Thanks Kirsten!
We had a wonderful trip to the Northwest! Kirsten's Passat was excellent! Very spacious and smooth to drive with lots of cargo room. The car ran excellently and it was great to have the added safety of all-wheel drive in the rainy NW winter.
Kirsten was also very flexible and accommodating with our changing plans. Would definitely recommend her and her VW to family and friends.
Kirsten and the Passat was fantastic as I had a week to car camp and photograph off the coast of Northern Washington...this especially came in handy for cold nights and needing plenty of room for gear. Kirsten was super flexible with the pickup and drop off times and location. I highly recommend her as well as the luxurious experience of driving a Passat.
We rented Kirsten's Volkswagen for our day trips from Portland and it was awesome! Perfect for the wet and windy roads. Super clean and comfortable. Kirsten was also very patient with us regarding reservation times, as we had to change our plans a bit. I can't imagine my trip without this car! Thank you Kirsten!!
Kirsten was great to work with--responsive to me and my need for a good, dependable car to drive to Corvallis. She was excellent at keeping in touch both before and after I picked up her car at her home; I would definitely recommend her VW to any Turo member!
