I use my car primarily to cart my girlfriend and her electric wheelchair places King Country Metro won't get us easily, so it goes unused most days. Since I use a folding ramp on the bumper and have never cared much for painstakingly detailing my ride, the paint has got a few scratches and the inside might have a couple knicks in the plastic, but it's otherwise in great condition and well-maintained. On the plus side, you should feel free to use it if you need to borrow a car for moving or bringing home your IKEA furniture without having to worry about scuffing up the upholstery or something. I don't sweat the small stuff.
The Honda Fit is a fabulously versatile car with 40/60 split rear seating that folds flat or, uniquely, folds into an upright position for storing items as tall as the cabin interior from foot well to ceiling--great for taller plants and anything else that can't be laid down flat. If you have lots of baggage or irregularly shaped items but also want a small, fuel-efficient car, you can't go wrong.
Being a low-mileage 2012 Honda, it won't break down on you. I would prefer somebody didn't burn out my clutch or repeatedly stall my engine, so please only rent this if you are familiar with driving a manual transmission car.
I have installed a smart phone mount and USB charger with a routed cable for a micro USB device (but getting your iPhone cable to it is easy--iPhone 4 cable included).
I can meet you at your home or anywhere in Seattle. Areas outside of Seattle will be charged the airport rate. I will drive back to my apartment and hand off the keys. When you're finished, you must drop the car at my apartment, and I will convey you to your final destination and return in my car. Your total trip mileage will start and end at my apartment, regardless of delivery distance.
Depending on the time of day, I can drop the car at the airport and take public transit home if you are heading south from SeaTac (deliveries between midnight and 6am excluded). If your destination is north of the airport, I will pick you up and convey you back to my apartment before handing off the keys. You should then return the car to my apartment, whereupon I will convey you back to the airport. Your total mileage will begin and end at my apartment.

Sean was very accommodating to flex with us on our trip. He was timely in making the car available, and the car was well kept. We would be glad to do business with him again on our next trip to Seattle.
Sean worked with me to meet the needs of my airport arrival and departure by being easy to contact and quick to accommodate. The car was fun to drive and got ridiculously good gas mileage. It's not the most powerful car but that's kind of implied with the Honda Fit. This was my first RelayRide, and I don't know how it could have been a better experience. Thanks, Sean!
Had a great experience with my first time using this service. Sean was very easy to work with. He was prompt with communication and thorough providing details to questions I had regarding available booking times, estimated costs for gas, and extra mileage. The car was in great condition and fun to drive! I'll definitely be booking this car again if I have an opportunity.
The trip was fine until 2 days after it ended. Sean had his buddy Ben come to pick up the car at the airport. Ben mentioned the cracked windshield, yes, cracked windshield that was on the car that Sean rented me. So today, Sean filed a damage report on that (which he knew about prior to renting to me) and on supposed damage to the back quarter panel that had supposedly had a bad epoxy repair attempted. Of course, I did not know about any of this until today. Sean is on vacation and claims he is not pulling a scam. And yet, here we are arguing over a car that had plenty of damage and was unclean and unkept when delivered. This has completely soured me on Turo. I hope Sean works out whatever happened to his banged up ride and never falsely accuses another renter. This guy never even contacted me when he thought the car was damaged. Also, he still has not seen the car. He's going off of this kid Ben. Terrible, terrible business transaction. Never again!
PS. ALL of my other rentals have been flawless with great people. Sean is the one rough cut rock in the field of diamonds I've dealt with.
Sean came to pick me up and even helped me load some heavy bags! He's a very easy-going guy and was easy to chat with, so there was no awkwardness on the drive back to his place. My 2yo daughter, who, as most young children are, is a fierce judge of character, and she talked about Sean most of the day after meeting him and riding with him for 10 minutes.
Anyway.. I digress. Sean was easy to communicate and deal with. The Honda Fit was clean inside, drove like a new car, and sipped so little fuel the gauge needled hardly moved the whole day I drove his car. If you haven't driven a Fit, Seattle is the perfect city to try one out in. Nice fast steering ratio for all of those tight streets, great visibility, a willing (and pleasant sounding) little engine, and effortless controls (seriously, one of the lightest clutches I've ever experienced). It also swallowed all our bags (several large suitcases and carryons) and the the carseat mounted without issue (didn't even need to fold the 'Magic Seats'). If I find myself back in Seattle sometime soon and need a car for a short trip, I will not hesitate to contact Sean again.
My first trip with Turo couldn't have been any better. Sean was a great person to deal with, very accommodating and helpful. The car is excellent. It drives smooth and easy to park. It is also very fuel efficient also from being a manual transmission car.
It could use a car wash soon :) but other than that it was all good!
