Smart car, luxury edition if you can believe. It has heated leather seats and great view glass roof! Nice car and VERY easy to park all over San Francisco in spots no other car can use :) Smart cars are not typical! They are fun to drive but they have a 3 cylinder engine and a mechanical automatic transmission. Takes a little getting used to. But these are really a mercedes and are strong and safe, if tiny. It cruises better on the highway than you would expect - it's remarkably stable at speed. Smart cars are made by Mercedes, and you feel it at speed. It also has a very unusual 300 miles per day mileage limit! FIrst time renters get $25 off with this code: it only works if you use it to create an account from what I understand. A note on over-mileage: I am absolutely willing to work with you on miles. I give good discounts for over-mileage to good renters who upload the required photos and follow the directions, and inform me about the overmileage Just ask me! Thanks Note this is an older vehicle. It's also parked on the street so it may not be super clean. If you want to get a wash, I'll pay you back for it. Thanks for your understanding!

Parking details

Parked on the street. This is a super short car and it's quite easy to park. Even though SF is not easy, where it's parked in SOMA there are spots virtually every day in the afternoon and evenings are no problem at all. The only exception is Monday night because of street sweeping. I know the streets around here very well, so ask me - I can help you find a spot. Text me if you have questions or need help. If you have to return in the morning you can park in the lot at 40 Oak Grove St. If it's late morning (11am or later) most days during business hours I can allow you to park at a 2 hr spot or at a meter - but only by arrangement via text.


You can use the fastrak lane for Bay area bridges. It uses autotoll, with the license plate. Toll will be added when it comes in (usually a week or two) and added to your rental.

CJ was a great host who was able to accommodate our pickup and drop off with ease and not only that, but he was readily available when we had questions.
