Looking to really enjoy the SoCal experience? Then pick up this Jeep Wrangler for cruising around town. Jeeps are incredibly popular in San Diego and when you experience the weather you can understand why. Easy to take down soft top, leather seats, and surround sound all compliment your next trip out to the beach to cruise or maybe up to the hills for some hiking.
The only requirement is that you are proficient at driving a stick shift.
If you are being picked up at the airport, the best place to be picked up is when you walk outside of the terminal and walk all the way down to the right. There is less traffic and it's easier to do a proper handoff.
------ NO OFF ROADING ------ This Jeep is only intended for use on normal roadways. Any off roading will make you liable for any resulting damage no matter how big or small resulting from off roading.
------ SATISFACTION GUARANTEED ------ I do everything I possibly can to make EVERY renter happy with their experience with me. If you rent from me and you have a wonderful experience, please do me a HUGE favor and leave me a 5-STAR REVIEW. If you rent from me and something wasn't quite to your satisfaction, PLEASE let me know as quickly as possible so I have the opportunity to make it right.
------ SAN DIEGO COUNTY ENJOYMENT ONLY ------ This vehicle is for enjoyment in beautiful sunny San Diego. Please do not bring this vehicle up to LA as LA is hectic and I do not want the wear and tear on my vehicle. There is a small insurance device with MetroMile that is attached to the vehicle and will track your trips, so I will be able to know if you took it outside of San Diego County.
------ RE-FUELING ------ Don't have time to re-fuel the vehicle when you return it? No problem, we'll take care of it. Please note that we do charge a small $8 re-fueling fee on top of the cost of fuel that will be billed to you after the trip.
------ JUST A FEW CONDITIONS ------ (1) Absolutely NO SMOKING (of anything), this includes marijuana. If the vehicles smells of any kind of smoke or marijuana, you will be fully responsible for all costs associated with having the vehicle decontaminated ($350+). (2) Pets ARE NOT allowed. (3) Turo App Required. For all of our bookings, we do require that you have access to the Turo app on a smartphone during your rental. This will be needed for communication as well as Trip Photos. You will especially need this when picking the vehicle up and when returning it.
2008 Jeep WranglerPhil's Jeep15520
Phil was wonderful to deal with. He dropped and picked the car up where I was staying, and was very punctual. The jeep was a nice ride and in great condition.
Phil was an awesome host and was very communicative. We got caught up in the Delta snafu and Phil was nice enough to drop off the Jeep at our hotel for no charge. The Jeep was tons of fun and the kids enjoyed it as did I.
Outstanding! Phil stayed in contact with from the duration of the vehicle drop off, worked with me with the timing due to my airport troubles and until he came to pick up his Jeep. I'd highly recommend Phil with his Jeep. Awesome car to cruise around in, smooth clutch and shifting, surprisingly nice ride on the freeways. Definitely will use his Jeep and his service next time in San Diego.
Phil was very accommodating and his Wrangler was very clean. As a first time Wrangler driver the manual took a little bit to get used to but it was easy enough after a bit of driving. The highway can get a bit bumpy and noisy, but cruising in this is fun.
Great rental. I needed a short rental for a business trip and, to make my schedule work, had to do the pickup and drop off at the airport. Phil was quick to respond to my request, on time, and easy to work with.
His jeep is in in great condition for being an old truck and was just what I was looking for. My trip timing was bad and I had totally stormy weather for the whole trip; pounding rain, tornado warnings, flash floods, the works. Unusual for San Diego but made the driving interesting. The soft top needed a little adjusting before it stopped leaking (normal for a jeep) but once adjusted it stayed perfectly dry. The shifter is smooth, engine strong, and suspension in good shape so it was a breeze to tool around in, even in heat traffic.
If you are in San Diego I can also now recommend LeStats for coffee (either location, good espresso and open late) and Parkhouse Eatery (awesome bouillabaisse) for dinner; both excellent.
A positive first experience for me. The Jeep had a set of brand new tires, and was a smooth ride on the city streets and the freeway. Phil was waiting at the airport baggage claim. Phil asked our preference about the sunscreen, spider top and offered to remove it for us. The hand off was easy, and we had a great six days with the Jeep. Phil was flexible in the return, and picked up the Jeep from our hotel. I recommend Phil's Jeep.
Cool car and great to drive the freeways. Couple drawbacks:
(1) I gave Phil all my flight information, and texted him before I left my home airport so he would know I was on time. Arrived at SAN -- got out to the curb -- gave him a call -- he's home at his apartment -- "there in 10 minutes". And he asks me if I can drop him back at his apartment afterward, in the opposite direction I'm going. 25 minutes later, he pulls up in the Jeep, and I end up giving him $20 for a cab so I can get to my seminar on time. Not cool.
(2) The car has a fairly significant front alignment problem, not disclosed in the ad.
(3) Phil was very insistent (at the airport, not in the ad) that the "Spider Web Screen" not be removed from the top of the jeep. It's a nice option to have, but if I can't remove it, it's not really a convertible, is it?
Otherwise, a nice clean vehicle at a pretty fair price.
Great rental! The Jeep was perfect for what we wanted - just getting around town and going to the beach - and the weather was perfect for it too! Never had to put the roof up once! The pick-up and drop-off arrangements worked out great too. As long as you can drive a stick-shift, I would thoroughly recommend Phil's Jeep!
My first Turo experience and it was 100% positive. Phil was great to communicate with and iron out the details of renting the car. He was very professional and always on time. The car was very fun to drive and helped a lot in creating the California Experience :) I would definitely recommend Phil and his Jeep to anyone visiting San Diego!
