Description

Rent a Convertible Mazda Miata in San Francisco Bay Area. Special Introductory Pricing! In today's "let the gizmos handle it" world, where some cars offer not just cruise control so advanced that it can stop the car if need be, but also a warning system that alerts a driver who starts drifting out of his lane, it's easy to forget the simple joy of fully involved driving. Should you need to be reminded, we highly recommend the 2008 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Drawing inspiration from the light and nimble British roadsters of the '60s, the Mazda Miata offers a zippy engine, go-kart-like handling, a quick-dropping top and trim, classic proportions. Unlike those old Brits, however, the dependable Miata won't leave you stranded on the side of the road cursing your bloody head off as you stare, bewildered, under the hood. Since its debut nearly three decades ago, the Miata has won over legions of driving enthusiasts and earned accolades from auto critics and consumers alike thanks to its entertaining drive and impressive reliability record. Features: - Black vinyl manual convertible top - Rear glass window with defrosters - 16-inch 5-spoke sport alloy wheels - CD player with MP3 file support - Driver seat height adjuster - Power windows and mirrors - Air-conditioning - Leather-wrapped steering wheel. Performance & mpg - 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 166 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque - A five-speed manual transmission drives the rear wheels on the Sport trim - Fuel economy 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, depending on the transmission Safety -Antilock disc brakes and side airbags are standard. Interior The 2008 Miata's cockpit is asnug fit. Still, it can be comfortable enough for two on a weekend getaway, and the well-shaped 5.3-cubic-foot trunk can hold a couple days worth of luggage, provided you pack light. The simple controls and no-frills design serve the Miata and its driver well. Fit and finish are very good throughout. Dropping the manual top can be done in seconds from the driver seat. Driving The Miata's peppy four pulls willingly and revs freely. It's a delightful instrument to play, especially with a manual gearbox where snapping off rev-matching downshifts is a breeze. Although tuned for a smoother ride than before, the Miata still changes direction with the immediacy of a roller skate and speaks to you clearly through the steering wheel and driver seat. With a lowered top and a twisting, scenic road stretching out before it, the 2008 Mazda Miata has few equals when it comes to sheer entertainment. Need a ride to pickup this car?

Free SFO pickup via Turo’s Valet Lot if renting for 2 days or more (free Lyft/Uber pickup from SFO). Please do not pay tolls on a Fastrak lane, or you may be charged double. Tolls will be charged at the end of the trip. Golden Gate Bridge does not have a cash toll booth, so crossing it will cost $7.75. Renter is responsible for all tolls. No vaping, smoking of any kind, or pets - a cleaning fee of $200 will be charged for upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal. As this is not the typical rental car company, please treat the car with respect and return the car clean in the condition it was rented, or we can clean it for $25. If only an exterior wash is required it will cost $15. If you need more time, please extend the trip via the app, or a $50/hr late fee will be charged. We will deliver the car with a full tank of gas, so please fill up with Premium 91 unleaded gas before returning. Please take photo or leave receipts in the glove box showing grade of gas used.

My only negative: I wish the car had an aux input but that’s really not Jeff’s fault. My girlfriend and I took the Miata on a trip north on highway 1 to the sea ranch and was probably the best car in the world to do that in. It handled like a dream and even though it was a Miata had plenty of power to navigate the twisty roads up north. Jeff was very responsive to my various changes throughout the trip and the car was delivered very clean. Shoutout to the turo staff at the valet lot for making the trip from sfo to the car as seamless as possible. They took car of the pre and post delivery pictures and the whole procedure took no longer that 15 mins after stepping out of the airport. Highly recommend!

Loved the car! Jeff put up with all my requests and was very accommodating. If I am in the area again, I will be renting this car again.

From pickup to drop off I have nothing but positive things to say.

Nicholas F.-Mar 31, 2018

Jeff made my first Turo experience awesome. I rent cars frequently from big rental companies and this experience was far superior. The car was in great shape and it was a much faster (and cheaper) way to to rent than waiting in lines at the airport rental counters. I’m a car guy so it’s nice know what your going to get.

Jason M.-Mar 26, 2018

Jeff’s Miata was a joy to drive up and down the PCH and mechanically perfect across an enthusiastic 750 miles. The manual soft-top mechanism operated perfectly all week, and Jeff was communicative and helpful throughout our trip. Highly recommended.
