What a fun ride for the weekend! Me and my wife were in town for a wedding and we have never driven a fiat before, but its honestly a great little ride that's perfect for 2 people! It was great on gas mileage which was one of the main reasons we picked the car. Being a convertible, it was lots of fun to have the entire top down on our gorgeous weekend and it drove wonderfully. Pickup and drop off was easy thanks to the constant communication from Valentina and her husband, and the car was mechanically was in great driving shape. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our time with it and if we are ever back in town, we will definitely rent from Valentina again!

I had not driven a mini Cooper since 1980 and it was just as fun now as it was back then. The Clubman had plenty of room for me,I am 6'8",and my wife and son and was the perfect car to maneuver around the L.A. freeway system. When we returned the car, Jose took us to the airport. He had us there in less than five minutes because our return location was so close to the airport and because he knew the airport traffic system so well.
