If you like being outdoors and getting dirty, you should try an Element. Great for camping, getting to the slopes, traveling with dogs,hauling couches, driving something with tons of head room (I'm 6'7"), or just driving around town. Bluetooth, iPod and audio-in stereo with HD radio. Universal smart phone holder (may hold some GPS units). All-wheel drive makes sure you can get up the hill in snowy weather. Decent ground clearance can handle some dirt/gravel roads. Plastic floors mean drive home in your muddy shoes and I'll worry about cleaning. Ski rack and large cargo box both optional, but they can't both be used at the same time. Bike rack may be available, but is not at the time of this writing. Extended back-seat legroom means your dog can hop in and out easily.
With both front and back seats folded flat, two adults can sleep lengthwise in the car (ask for details). With the rear moonroof, you can watch the stars while you sleep...unless the cargo box is on. My bear bell is always on the gear shifter, so feel free to use it.
Plenty of cargo room, especially with the roof cargo box. Seats can be folded up to the side walls or removed completely for a huge cargo area. When I show up to haul something, it's inevitable that someone is very doubting of the Element's abilities until I get things loaded (couches, pre-hung doors, lumber up to 12 ft).

I rented this car for two days to drive to the mountains and it was great. There is a lot of room for snowboards or skis and the AWD handled the snowy parking lots very well. There is a stereo with Bluetooth and a handy holder for a phone mounted on the dash. It's a very roomy and comfortable car that gets pretty good gas mileage. Ben made it really easy to coordinate the pick ups and drop offs and he even dropped me off at the airport for a very reasonable charge. I was pleased with the experience and I would definitely rent the car again.
My first experience with Turo and it was a good one! Ben was very responsive coordinating our pickup from the airport. The car was immaculately clean and drove very well (we were headed to Breckenridge). I'd absolutely book with Ben again if/when I'm back in the Denver area and need a ride. Highly recommended.
