Description

Awesome jeep. Get to all the great spots and enjoy what the island has to offer. This is a very well cared for Jeep Rubicon in excellent shape. It's four doors, automatic and very comfortable. It's 4x4 with a 2" lift and larger tires. It's the perfect size for fun, but handles great on the road and can fit the whole family. The A/C is cold for those hot days or you can remove two top panels in the front for some more sun. For extra fun we can remove the entire top for you as well - just let us know. We're happy to leave the car at the Kona Airport for you or meet you somewhere with the Jeep. Come enjoy the best Island - Hawaii I also have another Jeep available, check it out too! - https://turo.com/suv-rental/captain-cook/jeep-wrangler/101238 If you are looking for a great getaway we are also renting room and even while house on Airbnb now. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/13883147?checkin=03%2F17%2F2017&checkout=03%2F23%2F2017&s=Io6EyGCU&sug=50

Guidelines

Please remember the vehicle is to be returned in same (or better) condition as when you received it. (Turo Policy and courtesy) This includes fuel and cleanliness. It is Hawaii and I know you're renting the Jeep to explore - That's the best! But if the vehicle is returned dirty or with Sand I WILL have to charge a cleaning fee. You wouldn't want to receive a dirty jeep :) The best place to get cheap fuel and an easy car wash is Lex Brody Car Wash - https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lex+Brodie's+Kona+Express+Car+Wash/@19.6410069,-156.0031967,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x79540e567a7fe245:0xcefa575700f511d4!8m2!3d19.6410069!4d-156.001008 If you anticipate not being able (or wanting) to clean the vehicle, let me know ahead of time, that will help me with scheduling. Also, if the car is just 'normal' dirty the fee I charge for car wash and vaccuum is only $20. Excessive cleaning requirements will, of course, vary. Thanks for your understanding and making this a GREAT COMMUNITY of traveling enthusiasts.

Communication with Greg was great! He was waiting right there for us at the airport. Jeep was clean and it got us everywhere we needed to go. One headlight was out, but I don’t think Greg was aware of it at the time of pickup. Overall, great experience and I would recommend Greg and his Hula Girl.

Greg's Jeep was a great way to explore the island with a family. It has over 150k miles on the clock and it helps you blend in with the locals and not look like another rental jeep from Avis. Pickup and drop off were great. Thanks!

All-in-all, I would rate Greg's jeep as OK. When we met Greg, he immediately told us that the Jeep was in need of repairs, specifically to the transmission. Well, he was right, it absolutely needed work. Reverse would often just cut out leaving you stuck in a spot, revving in neutral. We also experienced difficulties with the overall capability of the Jeep, which was a little disappointing given Greg's claim that this Jeep would "take you anywhere on the Big Island" (note the pictures at the summit of Mauna Kea). This car was barely able to reach the Visitor's Center of Mauna Kea and almost overheated while attempting the 15% grade up, so it was clearly unable to continue to the summit. This was a pretty major disappointment for us, given the photographs and general intimation of the Jeep's ability, which was a huge influence in our decision to rent this particular car. Our last day was largely spent babying the Jeep so as not to encounter any serious issues. We were informed after the trip that Greg had repaired a failed torque converter and alternator, so hopefully no future renters should experience these issues. However, that information provided no real comfort as it felt as though our rental gave Greg the money to do the repairs he should have done before giving us the keys... Overall, Greg was very nice and laid back (although perhaps to a fault as he was 20 minutes late to our drop-off). It was very fun to drive this Jeep and great to feel like a local on the Big Island, but be wary of this car if you are looking to fully utilize its 4x4 potential.
