Description

2016 Volkswagen GTI. It has launch control, paddle shifters, fun to drive, great around corner, good daily driver and also good on gas. It checks all the items in the list for a sporty daily driver. Put it on sports mode (which I highly recommend) and take it up the sea to sky highway, you will definitely end up having a smile on your face. The DSG (Dual clutch) transmission is super fast and provides instant power to the road. Cargo capacity is around 52 cubic meters with the seats folded so you can haul all your camping gear and go on a fun trip. Have fun driving the car. The car comes with dual zone climate control with AC vents for the rear seats as well. Heated front seats make winter driving very comfortable. The turbocharged FWD engine makes winter driving a breeze. Although it is a 2 door car it has enough room in the back to hold 3 mid sized adults. The shorter wheelbase gives this car better power to weight ratio than a 4 door GTI and making the ride more peppy. It's a true driver's car. The car is super clean (hand washed and vacuumed before every trip) and comes with a small sanitizer bottle and sanitizing wipes in the storage under the arm rest. The car is also deodorized before every trip so that you don't get uncomfortable with any funky smell during your trip. In case you need to deodorize it even more you will find air fresheners in the storage under the driver seat. **IMPORTANT** This GTI has an APR stage 1 tune and makes around 310 bhp on premium gas. So this is the perfect daily driving sleeper. Since this is a tuned car it is highly recommended to use premium gas.

Or opt in for the pre-paid cleaning. * You are responsible for any exterior and interior damages. * Burn out of the tires : $230 per tire * Smoking in the car or smoke scent : $200 + reported to Turo risking to be kicked out of the community * Mess in the car : $200 for detail or $150 + reported to Turo * Damaged key : $250 * Damaged interior : $500-$1,000 -This vehicle is not to be driven on a racetrack or be involved in any illegal exhibition of speed -NO PETS AND NO SMOKING (Cigarettes, Cigars, Weed, Vaping, E-Cigs, etc.) An additional $200 cleaning fee will be assessed if this rule is violated. -Parking tickets and toll road fees incurred during the rental period will be the responsibility of the driver.

Faqs

  • What type of gas does the car use?

    The car uses premium gas (at least 91 octane). This car is tuned to increase performance and the ECU has been tuned to have advanced timing which produces up to 310 bhp compared to the stock 210 bhp. So anything below 91 will cause engine knock and hence damage the engine on long run. Please keep the gas receipts on the driver side door storage or upload photos through the app.

  • I turned off the ignition but the keys are not coming out

    It is highly probable that you turned the ignition off while on Drive. Turn it back on and put the car on Park. Now turn it off. The keys should come out now.

  • What to do if the keys are not turning on the ignition

    VW has a steering lock system. Once it is engaged it prevents anyone from turning the ignition on. In that case turn the steering wheel clockwise and while turned try turning on the ignition.

  • What if my delivery location is not listed?

    Choose a delivery location that is near your location and send me a message on Turo. We can work it out based on the distance from the delivery location.

Without a doubt 5-Star service! Was able to get the vehicle a little early as well which was great. Vehicle itself was amazing as well! From check in to check out, we were well taken care off and communication was 100% there. Would absolutely recommend!
