Description

2006 Honda Civic Hybrid. Original owner with great maintenance and care, no mechanical issues. Great gas mileage at >40 mpg with smooth driving! Built-in navigation system and I have a phone holder for your smartphone in the driver's air vent, with charging and audio cables. There is no bluetooth, so bring your own hands-free bluetooth earpiece for talking on the phone, but an aux audio cable is provided to connect to your phone jack. One thing you should note is that even though the car is 12 years old, it does have >200K miles on it, so a bit old. It still runs well and always maintained, and still gets good mileage at 35-40 mpg (or 45 on highway with cruise control). But it does struggle up steep hills, like in SF, or on the Grapevine to LA; just need to drive carefully or don't go up them too much. Smaller hills are fine. Engine is only about 100hp for the good gas mileage. Although this car still runs well and efficiently, it's not that strong, so I discourage LONG trips, like to Yosemite or other remote places, just in case something happens due to old age. Driving on regular streets and highways in the SF Bay Area is totally fine.

Parking details

Plenty of street parking available.

Guidelines

- Please return the car clean afterwards, like you received it and take out your own trash. - Please advise/ask in advance if you plan to bring pets, and please clean up any messes yourself. (preferably none.) - I can deliver/pick up the car for you, within 3 miles, if we arrange to do that the night before, usually after 8pm. Just give me a ride back home or vice versa. - If you reserve at least a day in advance, I can have the gas full for you. - If last-minute rental, the car may be available as-is, still clean but may be not washed or fueled up. - If there are any messes or mishaps with the car during your rental, please let me know so we can avoid surprises. - Some services I will need to charge you for (sorry, informing you up front): - Pet cleanup, $20+ (e.g. pet hair, etc.), and please inform me beforehand of any pets. - No smoking in car please. If returned with smoky smell, I will charge for cleaning fee. - Paying your parking tickets, $20 each if I need to pay in person at police dept. (if local) + cost of ticket, no extra charge for paying online, just ticket cost + online service fee. Thank you!

Faqs

  • Do I need to pay for gas?
    2 options for gas: 1. Buy gas before you return it to the same level as you started (usually full). It gets about 40 miles/gallon. 2. Skip buying gas and I'll fill it for you afterwards at the local gas station and charge you the exact price, no extra fee.

Robert is a perfect host. He was very helpful and understanding. I highly recommend renting a car from him. As described, the car is old, but I didn't have any issues while driving it.

I used Turo at first. And I’m happy that I found Robert. He is very nice, kind and very flexible. He explained me everything. I live not far away from Robert so if I need a car once again I would deal with Robert! Highly recommend 😊 Thank you Robert very much !!
