Be among the first to drive this brand new (purchased late March 2017) 2017 Subaru Forester 2.0XT, which has a turbocharged 250 hp engine that will keep its power at altitude. The 2017 model is a refreshed design with a much quieter ride.
This is the perfect vehicle for your trip to Tahoe, Yosemite, Napa...really anywhere. There is plenty of space for your gear and seating for 5 comfortable adults.
It also has Subaru's Symmetrical AWD ( https://www.subaru.ca/WebPage.aspx?WebSiteID=282&WebPageID=5964 )and X-Mode and Hill Descent Control ( https://www.subaru.ca/WebPage.aspx?WebPageID=20185 ) to handle adverse conditions.

Street parking in neighborhood is free from 6pm - 9am and all day Sunday. Otherwise, most street parking requires paying around $2/hour to parking meter.
Airport delivery will be curbside, based on availability. Otherwise, will be shuttle to Turo valet lot.
5 mile delivery is only within contiguous San Francisco city limits.

I wash the car regularly. When you return car normal dirt on exterior from city and freeway driving is acceptable but you are responsible for cleaning any mess made inside car. If you go skiing or camping or similar you will need to take the car for a full service wash or reimburse owner $40 cleaning fee.
Please be sure to fill the gas tank with premium (91 octane) gas to where it was when you rented it. Otherwise, you will be charged for price of gas plus a $10 service fee.
Are you flexible with extra miles?
Ask me for a quote for extra miles prior to your trip. Otherwise, you will be billed Turo's standard rate of $0.75 per excess mile.
How do I pay tolls?
You can either pay cash, except for Golden Gate Bridge, at the toll plazas or reimburse me after your trip. The car has Fastrak transponder mounted to the windshield.
How do I handle parking tickets?
Parking tickets can be avoided if you carefully read signs. However, if you get one it is your responsibility to pay it. If I receive a notice that a ticket has not been paid, you will be charged for the ticket plus a $30 processing fee plus any late fees.
Great experience! The car is perfect. Very clean and runs like a dream. Eric was very prompt and courteous in responding. There was a small mixup in picking up the car, but otherwise drop off was smooth. Would definitely rent from Eric again.
Eric was great to work with. We both made adjustments in delivery & return to account for SF traffic. The Subaru was practically new. We took it up into wine country & the turbo power made those twisty hill roads fun to drive.
Great experience with Eric and his brand new Subaru. Eric was flexible, punctual and courteous. He was responsive and helped make the process easy for me as a new Turo user. Pickup location was quite convenient - very short walk from hotel in Union Square. Car was impeccably clean, comfortable and had nice features that we enjoyed including good radio/sound and sunroof, not to mention the dependability and safety of a Subaru. Eric also followed up on my behalf with a question for Turo on a promotion through the app. Highly recommend!
