I love this car. It's in near perfect condition and is great on gas, has a decent stereo and is REALLY SPACIOUS. I've moved couches beds treadmills all kinds of stuff with this Scion xB. AC works great too.
I prefer to rent the car out to people long term and am willing to negotiate price a little. I also prefer to rent to business people working in and around Austin.
Because so many people ask me, I thought I would go ahead and answer a few questions. This is how I operate, I'm sure everyone on this site is a little different.
1. How does maintenance and oil changes work? I will let you know when the oil change will be due. It will be at least 1,000 miles away. If you drive it 1,000 miles and the oil needs to be changed, you can get the oil changed and I can reimburse you upon return OR if you rent and stay in Austin, I can come pick it from you at a prearranged time and go get the oil changed myself.
2. This car is in top condition and should not need maintenance during your rental. If something happens, I am flexible.
So go ahead and book my car and feel good about renting from a real local person saving up for a surf trip instead of padding the accounts of hertz for a non-convertible!
Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm looking forward to renting to you!
