Honda CRV, very easy to drive, gets great gas mileage (21-28 mpg). Spacious, fits lots of people and stuff.
The stereo has USB port for charging most phones and an audio jack you can stream from.
This CRV is one of the best cars for all around visibility, interior space, maneuverability and gas mileage. It even has a picnic table in back! Turo provides roadside assistance for a standard 75 miles, so you're covered for most major destinations. The car's miles are getting up there (~170k), but these models regularly go 250-300k with proper maintenance. I use the Carfax app to record servicing. I just had a service to check the belts and tires.
* You can send me an inquiry at austinm237 with gmail. I may have other options available if a listing is booked.
* The Turo phone app is really handy for photos, messaging and location sharing.
* It is about 1.5hrs to the airport on the bus from where I live vs. 1/2 hour driving, so if you are flying and have an extra seat in the car a ride (or drive) back, or to downtown, would be very appreciated.
* Please let me know approximately how far you'll be driving so I can calculate the mileage costs - I don't plan on collecting overage fees, unless you add on a ton of miles without letting me know ahead of time. Also, if you get the car super dirty, please give me a heads up, so I can wash it and have it ready for the next person. Oh, and no smoking please.
* If you need to adjust times, you can call the emergency line at 1-866-735-2901 (RELAY01) from 7am-6pm M-F PST, otherwise the Turo support team is usually very quick to reply by email.
* I've added photos of the few blemishes, so no need to worry so much about that. If something minor happens, let me know and you can pay me a reasonable depreciation value (approx. fifty dollars vs. the hundreds to fully repair).
* I have a Good2Go Pass for discounts toll highways (around three dollars) and a Discovery Pass so you can park free at any Washington State park. If you're going to the Olympic National Forest or Mt. Rainier, let me know, and maybe we can get an America the Beautiful Pass.
* Send me some info about yourself and your trip so I'm cool with lending you the car. Please contact me between 8am-10pm, PST so I can keep the response times low. I'll likely want to chat for a minute if your a new renter.
* Finally, let me know about your favorite destination so others can share your experience! Cheers and thank you
Here are a few bits of info, suggested by other renters:
• The Honda locks are CCW to lock. And pull the handle out while pressing the knob down on the driver's door.
• The cruise control button is on the left of the dashboard and must be depressed if you want to use it.
• Press 'Source' button on stereo until "AUX" for audio input. The stereo has volume dial that doubles as the tuning knob by pressing it left or right.
• To open the rear gate, press the button under the window controls left of the steering wheel to pop the rear hatch, then use the latch handle hiding underneath top of the license plate frame.
• The defrost on this 'upright' windshield can be a little challenging, crank up the heat for best performance. Has some roadside equipment provided.
