Description

This 2015 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen TDI (Diesel) with push-button start has been my trusted steed since the day I bought it. I'm a car guy and take pride in my vehicles. What this means for you is a dependable, sporty wagon with excellent fuel economy (as high as 50-60 MPG Highway!) This isn't your Mom's station wagon. Since it has a diesel engine it's got plenty of "get up and go" with the cargo space to match. Also, don't be afraid of driving a diesel. Stations with diesel fuel are accessible near the pickup location and it drives just like it's gas counterpart. For safety this car has a rearview camera, so you can back up without hesitation. It's a 4 door wagon-style vehicle that can seat up to 5 people. The rear provides ample room for luggage and comes with VW's "CarGo" protection system which makes for easy clean-up, and securing of items using the included right-angle holders that velcro to the CarGo cargo mat. There is also a privacy screen to cover the cargo area. This can be taken out prior to your trip should you want to haul larger items. The rear seats do fold flat, nearly doubling the cargo space. In the cabin, the floormats are WeatherTech so you'll have the peace of mind should it be a rainy or snowy day and not worry about ruining the carpets. Included is Sirus/XM Satellite Radio featuring the Select Package which includes music, news, and sports, However, feel free to bring your own music too! This car's auxiliary inputs include Bluetooth (which I am happy to help set up prior to departing) CD and SD Card. Please note that CD & SD card inputs are located in the glovebox. This car has I-PASS (aka E-Z Pass) to ensure you're able to breeze through the express lanes on the Illinois/Indiana and further eastern Tollways too should you need to take them. After your trip is complete I'll send you a reimbursement request (via Turo) for any tolls that you've passed through. Keep in mind by using the tollway pass you'll save at least 50% off the cash price of the toll if not more, so please ensure to stay in the fast lane and use the Tollway pass. With Turo's 24-hour support (1-415-965-4525) should anything go wrong you'll always have someone to assist you if you have any questions or concerns.

Parking details

The vehicle is street parked, so please contact me for the exact location of the car and I will be happy to escort you to the vehicle.

Guidelines

- Pets are welcome, but please be aware of the $25 pet fee should they not ride in a carrier. Pets in plastic/enclosed carriers are exempt from this fee. Pet's in other forms of carriers (e.g. cardboard from the shelter) are not exempt. Please message with questions. - Please ensure to refill the car with Diesel Fuel - Gasoline will destroy the engine. The best advice I can give is to find the least expensive diesel you can. There's only one grade (#2) and even if it says "Biodiesel" that is perfectly acceptable, as in Illinois most diesel is 20% Biobased. - Delivery is on a case by case basis and depends upon my availability and your location. Airport pickup and drop off is available, though please message me prior to coordinate. - No smoking - Please keep in mind you are responsible for any and all tolls you may pass through. As stated, this car is equipped with an I-PASS so you don't have to stop at toll booths, however, you will receive a request for reimbursement once your trip ends. - I make every effort to wash the vehicle prior to delivery (weather dependent), so to avoid a cleaning fee, please ensure to run the car through the wash before returning, again, weather dependent. Fees & Penalties: If any Turo driver is late in returning the car without requesting an approved extension and communicating with the host at least 12-hours before the end of your rental within the hours of 8:00 am to 10:00 pm you may be subject to a standard late fee of up to $150.00 as well as the full cost of an additional day rental fee.

Faqs

  • I've never drive a diesel car before, what do I do about fuel? Also, are there stations near the pick up / drop off location?
    Have no fear, diesel is near! Just because diesel cars aren't common in the US doesn't mean that fueling them is difficult. There is a Mobil station located at the intersection of N. Sheridan Road and W. Howard St - The exact address is 7550 North Sheridan Rd, Chicago, IL 60626 - This is a short trip away from the cars home location. They tend to have the least expensive diesel in the area and there is typically only 1 grade of diesel, so while on your trip don't worry if it says "Diesel #2" vs. "Bio Diesel" as both of these fuels are acceptable. I would advise to not spend the extra for "Premium Diesel" which is uncommon, but out there.

Justin was great to work with! The car was perfect!

Matthew W.-Aug 11, 2019

Justin and his partner helped me tremendously! Even let me extend my drop-off time! Would definitely use their car again! Amazing!

Angelica B.-Aug 6, 2019

It was a nice little car with good cargo space and gas mileage. It was a bit dirtier inside than his descriptions- dusty, needed a bit of vacuuming, some pet hair and a weird chalky powder on the interior- but nothing horrific for my purposes of bopping around with the fam, though I wouldn't have wanted to be wearing wedding guest clothes or something fancy in it. There was a tiny communication hiccup during the blind handoff, but to make up for it he offered to waive the refueling fee, which was nice.

I had a really excellent experience, Justin’s car was clean, easy to use and stress free to pickup/drop off. Do be aware that you need to refill the car with diesel specifically, I wish this had been more explicitly stated. Luckily Justin recommended a good place to fill up nearby when we messaged him.

Hannah H.-Jul 15, 2019

Renting Justin’s VW wagon was so much fun. The car handles incredibly well and is a joy to drive. Also, we averaged 45 mpg during our road trip — tough to beat that! As a host, Justin was flexible and made the pickup and drop off as seamless and easy as possible. I would absolutely recommend Justin’s vehicle to a friend and hope to rent it again someday.
