This car zips and incredible on gas. You'll be surprised how slow the gas indicator goes down. Car is clean on the inside, turbo automatic with cruise control,, leather seats, bluetooth for cellphone, and upgrade bluetooth device to send your smart phone audio to stereo. A/C blows very cold, even without going to the lowest setting. Despite being a small car, it's remarkable how spacious Mini Coopers are on the inside with good visibility.

Seats: 4 Doors: 2 No Pets or Smoking inside car Car will have full tank of gas and cleaned inside and outside, please return in same condition. Please be mindful of the mileage limit. We prefer that car is not taken out of the city limits, if you do take the car out of city limits (30miles from downtown), you will be responsible for any fees for returning car via towing and incidents. We recommend you pay toll charges at the time you go through a toll both, Toll Road Authorities in the area charge hefty penalties for not paying at time of use and instead having to mail in bills. There will be a $5 process fee for all mailed in Toll Violation Bills DELIVERY -- Car can be delivered to airports, but would be far more convenient for us and price wise for you if you pick up at my location in midtown, blocks from downtown Houston. From IAH Airport it can be an uber ride of like $25-30 (just 30 or so minutes) and Hobby for like $20-$25 (20 or so mins).

Great car for the weekend! Needs some maintenance (windshield wiper fluid, brakes might need some attention soon) but great ride and really fun to drive! Pick up and drop off were super simple and easy. Would absolutely rent again

This mini is really fun to drive! Jerry is professional and accomodates requests and needs to convenience. Would rent again without a doubt.

I unfortunately did not have a great experience with this Turo rental. I did not realize how filthy the car would be if I didn’t opt for the $20 cleaning service. I’ve rented from Turo twice and I did not have to pay extra for the car to be decently clean. I rented it for 3 days and didn’t think I needed to pay extra for it to be decently clean. The outside was super dusty. I’d have dust on my hands each time I touch the car. The floors were covered with dirt and debris and the middle console had some debris and crumbs or whatever they were in it. It just felt gross inside the car. It also reeked if cologne inside. Very strong. I was told it’s the air freshener. I’d hate to give you a bad review, but I am being honest. Also the brakes were a bit squeaky and the steering was a bit stiff. The car jolts when you accelerate sometimes. By the time I asked to get it cleaned it was already the next day when I got a response and it didn’t make sense to have it cleaned to be returned the next day. Also if I did get it cleaned I’d have to get it cleaned before I returned it. Makes no sense. Pick up and return was easy and flexible and it was fun when I had to go fast in the car.

Logistics for picking up and dropping the car was very easy and doing business with Jerry was very pleasant.
