Yeah, you could rent a Corolla. Or you could enjoy life and get in this car. It is a six speed manual transmission, but a supercharger is so wasted on an automatic transmission. Let the wind blow through your hair as you take this ride through the twisties jamming to the Harmon Kardon audio system.
Or go ahead, rent the Corolla. It's your choice.
Q: What type of gas does it take? A: It runs best on pure adrenaline, but if that's not available please stick to 93 octane. The Supercharger doesn't like anything less.
Q: ZOMG! I love this car so much! Can I buy it from you? A: Yes. Make me an offer!
Q: Will you meet me in Frisco? A: No. Love Field is about as far as I will go and I might not even do that depending on my schedule. Request an Uber and come get the car!
Q: Is this a "Tiptronic" manual? i.e. Can I drive it in automatic mode? A: That's like asking if Bruce Lee has a "pansy" mode--absolutely not. This is six gears of pure automotive exhilaration. Who wants a "computer" between the shifter and the gearbox?
Q: I have a pet Giant Poodle/Great Dane mix. Is it okay if Fluffy rides with me in the car? A: Can you guarantee that the car will look just like it does when you pick it up? And should it not, will you pay for any cleaning/damages/repairs needed plus 25% for the effort? If yes, then sure. Fluffy is welcome, though you will need to provide proof of licensure if Fluffy plans to drive. http://youtu.be/BWAK0J8Uhzk
2008 MINI CooperJohn's MINI1559
Great car. A lot of fun to drive. John was a pleasure to work with. Very flexible and accommodating. I would recommend him every time.
This is a great ride. John is an excellent owner, is easy to work with and genuinely wants to share this wonderful car with other people.
Rented it for a trip to the Hill Country last fall, two people and luggage for long-weekend. Comfortable cabin for two, but the boot is compact, so expect to use at least a portion of the back seat for your belongings.
Top is both sturdy for highway speeds and easy to operate. Zippy little car. 6-speed gearbox, so get your left foot in shape.
We had a wonderful time in John's Mini Cooper! Clean, well maintained, fun to drive, and John was very prompt in his correspondence with us. This was my second time renting on Turo and have now had a second excellent experience. Thanks John!
Before rating this car, John is one of coolest people you will meet. I can see when I first met John that the Mini and him go together. My experience was this incredible car could go easy past 5 stars. Very clean, well maintained automobile but most importantly a very fun car to drive. Looking forward to renting this car from John in the near future.
John was really flexible on the pickup/drop off. Even had an great suggestion for dinner in downtown Dallas.
The car is great. Getting it out on 121 early in the morning with the top down is really a great experience.
Picking up and dropping off in Dallas from Frisco (or other points north) is not very difficult at all. It is a straight trip down the tollway or a ride on the light rail. The light rail has stops all over downtown for a quick walk to the pickup spot.
