If you choose airport delivery, I will leave Car at the Radison Airport Hotel rear parking lot. The Radison Hotel is immediately across the street from airport, and they offer courtesy shuttle from Airport baggage claim. There will be a key lockbox on window with key for your convenience. I will have vehicle at airport before beginning of your reservation and you can leave Car in same location at conclusion of trip and take shuttle or cab back to airport across street (or you can walk via the airport connector bridge)
Now for the full review of the vehicle: A little background first, I am an autox racer, as well as a big time car enthusiast. Anyway, the vehicle in question is, of course, the 2009 Mercedes sl550. The v8 under the hood provides plenty of power, which is delivered in a smooth and linear manner, so it never feels like it wants to bite your head off, but also in no way fails to provide a smile as you rocket up an on ramp. The exhaust is fairly quiet, but provides a particularly sonorous note around 4500-5000 rpm. The suspension strikes a perfect balance between comfort and rigidity, perfect for eating up the miles! The handling is solid, not telepathic, like a 911, but you are never left wondering what direction your wheels are pointing. Another note on the handling, I did experience a touch of lift off understear during spirited cornering. Anyway, all in all it's an excellent car, perfect for long drives through twisty mountain roads and highways alike.
What a fun experience! I was nervous to use Turo for the first time, but it could not have gone better. The owner had the vehicle clean and full of gas when we arrived. He was especially quick to respond to any questions or concerns, using Turo to reply back and forth via email or the Turo app. It was awesome to put the top down and enjoy the beautiful weather for a few days during our annual trip to Jamestown/Newport for Independence Day. Our family was jealous and thought we spent a ton to rent a Mercedes convertible, but we kept this affordable secret to ourselves! 5 stars all around.
