Description

This car is the perfect choice for a ski trip or any trip to the mountains. What I like the most about it is how well it handles in the snow. I test drove over 50 different make/models of cars from 2008-2015 to determine several things about what makes a good car. I was limiting my choice to AWD vehicles that seat seven people. The Traverse and MDX did the best in the snow. The Traverse is also best for room. I'm the size of an outside linebacker in the NFL and I can fit in the third row of seating. If you have a smaller group it can easily fit all of your luggage. Car is V-6 so it has plenty of power. The car handles great. I like this car so much it is the only one that I bought two of for my fleet. Picking up the car it is a hop, skip, and a jump from DIA. It is only a 20 minute Lyft/Uber ride and sometimes special services can be made. When you get here. Your car will be cleaned and filled up and ready to go. ONLY TURO OWNER IN DENVER WITH A DEDICATED SERVICE LOT OWNED NEAR DIA. FOR SKI SEASON - I specialize in cars for skiers and the winter vacation. In addition to having a fleet of all wheel drive vehicles designed for Colorado roads. All six of my AWD vehicles are equipped with mounting devices. This allows them to have ski racks or giant Thule cargo boxes. This is a new business line, please be patient :) It is not designed to be a profit center, but merely a valuable service for my renters. I'm not trying to make a profit merely cover my costs of capital, time, and the risks. The Thule box is the Force XXL. It is the biggest freaking box they make. I'm the size of on outsized linebacker in the NFL. 6'2 and 240 lbs. I can fit in this box. I found out that Turo insurance does not cover after market add on's. Because of this there is a charge of $80 rental for a cargo box and a $20 charge for the ski rack. Let me know if you will be requiring either of these.

Car was filthy. There was a film so thick on the windshield that you could barely see to drive. It didn’t appear the car had been cleaned in several months if ever. It was so dirty that they had a brush inside so you could scrape the dirt out but apparently no one had ever used it and no one had ever vacuumed. I had my children sit on towels because I didn’t want them to get dirty from the seats. It got us where we needed to be to and from but that was about it. Very disappointed for the price we paid. As far as convenience, it was lacking as well. It was parked in a lot near the airport that we were not familiar with. Owner would only tell us where to find the car once we arrived and said he would remotely unlock it. We were traveling late at night with 2 small children and had never used Turo before so having more of an idea of where to go or what to do before boarding our plane would have been a lot more convenient for us. When I reached out to the owner he only referred me back to an email that gave us no indication of where to go exactly once we arrived. Upon arrival at Midnite we had to find a shuttle that took us to the lot and search the lot for the car. All of this just to get to and find the car took over an hour. I will not use this owner ever again. It was a very unpleasant experience and not worth the money. Very disappointed especially since my own son rents his car out using the same app and he was also upset someone would let their car be rented in the condition it was.

This is the third year in a row we have decided to rent from Mike. This car handles extremely well in the snow, is large enough to fit 6 of us with suitcases and some gear when we get the utility box. The pick up and drop off is very easy and communication with Mike is great. I would highly recommend renting this vehicle or any other from Mike.
