I'll start with the positives.
Communication - Kalyan did fine with communication. He replied to all of my text messages and answered all calls. It was easy and quick to communicate with Kalyan.
Punctuality - Kalyan was a few minutes late to meet up, but it wasn't a big deal and didn't create any issues.
Convenience - The meeting spot to pick up the car was convenient and had no issues.
-I was trying to rent a cool little car as the car my wife and I would use to leave our wedding reception. I was running short on time and I was a little stressed so once Kalyan dropped the rental off, I left fairly quickly because I was running late for some other wedding matters. With that said, the issues I'm noting below should have been discussed with him earlier, but I had to take what I got rather than risk being late for my own wedding.
Safety - As soon as I pulled out of the parking light, I noticed the check engine light on. It remained on throughout my trip. Without knowing much about the car and not having time to take it into the shop, it was very disconcerting to drive around with the check engine light on. A message also came on the dashboard saying "Tire Pressure Gauge". It might have only been to put more air in the tires, but I would have expected the owner of the car to be responsible for that, not the renter since it was on as soon as I turned the car on.
Cleanliness - Granted, it was May 20th in the spring and pollen was in full force, but the car was covered in pollen. The blue paint was completely speckled with yellow pollen to the point that I paid to take it through a car wash on because I would embarrassed to take it to a wedding looking like that. There was also dirt, leaves, gravel on the floor mats and the dashboard was dusty. There was trash (gas receipt and food wrapper) on the floor. I took the car to get the inside cleaned as well. I spent close to another $30 just so I wouldn't be embarrassed to drive the car at my own wedding.
Overall, Kalyan was polite, the value was good, and communication was fine. However, based on the safety and cleanliness items I noted, I would not rent this car again.
Car is good on gas and runs smooth! Car itself is very unique as the owner describe in his profile! I enjoy riding it so much with the convertible mode, I will definitely rent it more during summer! Thanks again Kalyan!
I can't remember the last time I enjoyed driving so much! I rented this car for a month, and after that prolonged my rental for another month, so you can imagine, how much I liked it. Kalyan, thanks for this experience!
Amazing, true sports car!!! Grips the road in dry or wet conditions and is not necessarily for a driver unfamiliar with sports cars. The steering is sensitive and strong and the brakes are as well. The gas responds with true horsepower when the proper pressure is applied then really takes off!!! The owner is extremely flexible and accommodating as well as responsive.
