Description

Read on to learn why we call this car our Christmas Car. ---Good, comfortable ride. Seats 6. Large backseat and huge trunk. V6 gets upwards of 28 MPG. Very reliable. Clean and usable. Custom priced lower than recommended! This car is priced right and it's for a good cause! This is not a flashy car. It's comfortable. It's roomy. And you won't have to worry about small dings or trying to keep the interior immaculate. There's a scratch on one door and on the bumper, but it just adds character! We will bend over backwards to ensure that you have a fantastic customer experience. If you need anything please just ask! *** Absolutely No Smoking! $250 cleaning and detailing fee will apply!!!*** No pets. Our story - +++ Our Christmas Car is a modern day revamp of an old Andreasen family tradition. When we were young, the Andreasen kids would raise an animal for 4H. We would show sheep, hogs or steers. At the end of the year we would sell the animal and the money that we made would pay for our college and mission funds. As an Army family with 5 kids, we don't have the ability to raise animals anymore. Instead we turned to Turo to teach our kids business and responsibility. Our ultimate goal is to buy a vehicle for each of our kids. Each will learn to manage their own small business and 100% of their profits will go to their college and mission funds. When you rent the Christmas Car, you are helping to teach our kids a little about responsibility and business. The earnings go to a family vacation. Not just for gifts. We appreciate you supporting us. Thank you!

Faqs

  • How do I get into the car?
    With the key! Or, if it's a remote key handoff, the code to get into the car will be sent to you and changed after the rental.
  • Why Turo?
    We started with Turo back in 2014 when it was called RelayRides. We were impressed with the community of people that we met and the ingenious concept. We've been participants in Turo in some degree ever since and have met people from around the world.

Some great folks who were quick to help when we locked our keys in the car! Thanks for the wonderful service!

The vehicle was right out front of the arrivals at the airport and easy to access. Car drove great and was a good value. James was easy to deal with and very flexible and understanding when I had schedule changes. Would recommend and would rent again.

Everything went very well . James was a great host. He kept us informed throughout the trip. We will be using Turo in the future. Thank you

Such a great experience and easy pick up and drop off, and to top it all off knowing that I was helping James’s kids go to college! Car wash was a breeze and made so much sense I can’t believe every other Turo car owner doesn’t offer this!
