Parking details

Pickup at my location: This is the leasing office, look for signs! Please if you need to park or unload find a visitor parking space. If there is no space available park in the nearby plaza. If you're late please keep me updated, I am very flexible, and we will make it work for you! If you need to park your car for long term, you may park across the street. BE WARNED: There is a 72 hour parking law that California Highway Patrol may enforce. This does not happen often and at times they leave a warning that lasts a few more days before towing. Keep that in mind! Please lock your doors! I am not responsible for any damages or stolen items if you chose to park there. Return: Please meet me at the same location and park in "visitor" parking only. All other parking that are marked are resident reserved parking and is considered tow zone. If no "visitor" parking is available, please park near the plaza which has a Dentistry, Core Yoga and a Library. Try to park closer to the apartments. *You are responsible for incurring any fines regarding improper drop-off, for example, parking in a non-visitor parking space (examples are handicap, mail delivery, future resident, resident numbered space and all other spaces that are NOT marked "visitor" ).


KIDS are awesome! I have 2 of them. Please clean up after them. NO smoking of any kind in vehicle. NO Pets Allowed. EXCEPTION: ONLY if they are carried in a carrier and placed in rear trunk area. ALSO SEE FAQ #2 & #3 (please read cleaning details). NO snow chains, this vehicle is equipped with AWD and it will damage the vehicle if used. Return vehicle full tank and/or as given. Return vehicle clean and/or as given. Any damages to leather seats will be charged a fee for repair or replacements.


  • Do I allow pets? See exception!
    Unfortunately for this vehicle, no pets are allowed. I will make an exception if they are carried in a carrier in the trunk area. Keep in mind a cleaning fee may be assessed to remove odor and stains to make the vehicle presentable for the next renter and to my family!
  • Do I charge for cleaning?
    This is car sharing and these are all my personal vehicles that I use for my family, so please understand if it is returned not as given I will need to charge a fee. If it is minor cleaning which I understand it happens and I don't mind at all because I want you to enjoy your trip, so I will only charge for the car wash with receipt. If extensive cleaning needs to be done to make the vehicle presentable to others, then I will charge according to Turo’s policy.
  • Do I charge for damage for Leather Seats?
    Yes. Any damage to leather seats will be charge for repairs and/or replacement to make presentable to the next renters, so please be careful!
  • Do I allow smoking, vaping or similar?
    Unfortunately, no smoking of any kind is allowed within this vehicle. But.. if you do, I will need assess the odor and/or damages and have a complete detail cleaning. The fee will be according with Turo's policy.
  • What Hybrid does for you?
    This is not a full electric vehicle, at low cruising speed the EV will activate to run on electric. Very helpful in saving gas while city coasting and traffic hours. There is NO need in charging, the gas motor will charge the battery when needed!

Gary was very punctual and a clear communicator when it came to questions. Unfortunately, we couldn’t actually meet due to an emergency, but Gary was very supportive with our trip itinerary.
