Get $25 off your first trip! This is as close to a Mercedes Benz go-kart as it's gonna get. It even sports a little bling in the form of, chrome mirrors, chrome grille and chrome wheels. Oh, and be sure to use the paddle shifters to smoke that tech-geek hipster's Prius off the stop light. The AUX plug is in the glove box. Oh, and it has a CD player (what's that?!?) with a CD case underneath to store all your old school compact discs for that long road trip. The driver's side even has a cool magnetic clip for your shades. Explore the city like they did in Jurassic World. The huge panoramic sun roof lets you get a great view of your surroundings! This rear-wheel drive go-kart gets 34 city / 38 hwy miles per gallon, so feel free to mash it, just a little. But, premium gasoline only por favor. Due to safety concerns, the key is located in the lockbox. Please return it there after your rental. I love all my cars and like to keep them in great condition, please help me do so! There are many car wash places around the area, so please take it there if you get the car dirty (inside or out). Don't get charged the $100 cleaning fee! You can laugh manically at the other tourists attempting in vain to park their gigantic SUVs and lifted pick up trucks, while sliding this smart car into any parking space. Don't be a newb, explore the city like a boss! Oh, and don't curb my rims! No smoking or pets please! Please read and abide by all FAQ's.

Parking details

Park on this street or within a half block radius. Avoid Funston between Lurline and Lawton. They will vandalize the car! No “J” permit so don’t park any east of Funston!


No smoking or pets in the car!


  • Am I responsible for cleaning the car after my trip?
    Yes, please clean the car after your trip! If there is road debris, dirt or dead bugs on the car after your trip, please hose it down or have it cleaned, prior to your return.
  • Why am I being asked to upload a copy of my license when I have already been verified by Turo?
    Sometimes, if we are not meeting face to face, uploading a copy of your license is a way for me to verify your identity.
  • What about bridge tolls and tickets?
    Please pre-pay, pay cash, use your own Fastrak, or pay online shortly after your trip using the license plate number. If I have to pay upon receiving a letter in the mail, I seek reimbursement for the original amount plus a $5.00 online payment/processing fee through Turo.

The driver side seat belt didnt work.

Hello, we recently rented a smart car in San Francisco. However we had a few problems which we have made the owner aware of. They are as follows: 1: The drivers seatbelt buckle is faulty. It is extremely hard to buckle up and it takes many tries until it eventually buckles. I believe this may be unsafe. 2: The back left light is out. This indicated by the rapid indicators. This is also unsafe. 3: The power steering seems to be faulty as it is extremely difficult to turn at a standstill and full lock when moving. However, if it does not have power steering this is fine. 4: MOST URGENT, whilst we were driving at 40mph on a smooth road, the hood flew off and under the car. Thankfully it is held on by a fabric tie. As this was a shock, we had to quickly pull over to stop both us and the traffic behind having a serious accident. We have thankfully found some tape and fixed it back on but we are shaken up. As I have used your service multiple times, I do expect safe cars to be advertised on Turo. Kind regards, Joshua
