Description

Hello – My name is Bernie! I have made my home in Portland and am ready to experience Oregon with you in luxury. My color is a beautiful deep Barbera Red Metallic with high contrast Saddle Brown Dakota Leather interior, power heated seats, lumbar support, auto-dimming mirrors, and parking assist. I’m a fully equipped BMW 328i with the Sports Package providing me with a full efficient in-line 6 cylinder engine, 17” premium wheels, sports steering, seats, and suspension. I’m also not cluttered with all these screens that most cars have, it is just you, me, and the road. I am the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Parking details

Bernie the BMW has dedicated parking in the Solheim-Paul parking lot located between 15th and 16th Ave on Kerney behind REI Portland. His keys stay inside and hand-off can be done remotely to unlock at the start of your trip! It's pretty cool and makes renting super easy as I can accommodate just about any and all pick-up or drop-off time that works for you. If you're coming from Portland International Airport (PDX) Downtown Portland is also easy to access. Just hop on the red line MAX ($2.50) and get off at either the downtown China Town stop and walk, or the Galleria/SW 10th Ave Max Station and transfer to either the NS Line or the A-loop of the street car (same ticket). Then exit at NW 10th and Johnson street and walk the 5 blocks to the lot. If you happen to have your own car, you can also park it in the Solheim Paul lot while you rent.

Guidelines

* Keys: Always stay locked inside. He is remotely unlocked/locked and the start/end of the trip. Makes sharing super easy for everyone! * Pets: Pets may be considered if asked ahead of time so that a seat cover can be provided. Damage and excess fur may result in additional cleaning/damage charges at end of trip. * Smoking: Not allowed ever in Turo cars. Neither tobacco or electronic. You will get charged a $250 cleaning fee if evidence of smoking is found. * Fuel: Bernie will always be full of gas at the start of your trip. Please refuel when done to avoid additional charges and a $10 fueling fee. This car requires 92 octane. * Driving: Please be extra careful when driving around. Bernie is very low to the ground and Portland has many high curbs. Please be careful with his front end!

Faqs

  • Can you accommodate last minute trips?
    Yes absolutely! With Bernie's remote lock/unlock you can pick him up and return at anytime that is convenient for you. I try to instantly respond to trip requests, so if you don't get a response in under an hour please feel free to call or text me directly.
  • Who should I contact if I'd like to buy or sell a home in Oregon?
    Just talk to my dad. His business cards are inside, feel free to take one.
  • Why does Bernie BMW need premium fuel?
    Cause he's an old crotchy german man? Actually it's just what is asked by the manufacture for the BMW performance engine.
  • What passes are needed in Oregon?
    There are no toll roads or bridges to worry about. However, many mountain trails require a Northwest Forest Pass, and if you're heading to the snow a Sno-Park permit is required in designated Sno-Parks from November 1 – April 30. These can be easily purchased from the REI which is conveniently located right next door @ 14th and Johnson.

Great trip! So easy and convenient because Samuel can lock and unlock the car remotely. Samuel gives thorough directions which is great, he put my mind at ease. Didn’t have any trouble with parking the car. Smooth ride. Samuel was super responsive and car was clean. Would book again!

Kristin G.-Sep 28, 2019

Great car and owner. Samuel was very prompt with directions and advice. And was very understanding when we needed the car a little longer. Would highly recommend!

Everything was okay the car made sketchy noises in the suspension and brakes, it is an older 3 series tho so me being a car guy I totally get it, the usb doesn’t work to connect the music so no music and the aux connection (if you still have a phone) like that has to be set to half way volume on your phone and even then the speakers sound pretty bad/blown. Other than that it was an okay car and experience. Sam seemed like a nice guy and very was helpful, just thought it was weird I never met the guy. Just unlocked the car from somewhere... if your looking for a get around vehicle for the fair pricing this is it!
