Guidelines

- I added a TxTag for the car so that you can take it on tollways. Just let me know if you use it and I can add it to the invoice. - I realize these cars are not computers, but read the FAQ. Seriously, read the FAQ. - No smoking, no pets, no smoking pets. - Bring the Fiat EV back the way you picked it up, basically clean, full of juice and ready to go on another adventure - The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that deep down inside we ALL believe we are good drivers.

Faqs

  • How do I charge this thing?!

    There is a plug in charger in the trunk that works off any standard wall plug. Its called an L1 charger, which means it takes all night to charge the car. It’s much faster to use an L2 charger - you will find L2 chargers all over the city on the ChargePoint network. Some hotels have L2 chargers you can use. To charge, use the Chargepoint card attached to your key. You wave the card in front of the charger and wait for the card to authorize. You’ll hear a “click” and the handle will be ready to plug in. L2 chargers charge the car in about 3-4 hours.

  • Where are the chargers I can use?!

    There are two ways to find them. You can use the ChargePoint website: https://na.chargepoint.com/charge_point search for "Austin, TX". The Chargepoint app is super helpful if you want to download it. It’s really the best way to navigate the charger network.

  • Can I make it to (the Magnolia Silos, San Antonio, Dallas, etc)?

    Only the truly ambitious and patient can do roadtrips in a Fiat EV. I strongly discourage you from trying. I have some affordable cars with gas engines that would make the trip, but I would recommend a Porsche - I have those too.

  • Anything I should know about the chargers?

    Yes! I learn more about the chargers in Austin every day. Here’s some important things to keep in mind... Some chargers are free, but in paid parking garages. You are not exempt from the parking fees, and you are responsible if you incur parking fees. If you need help understanding a specific charging station just ask and I will help. You can use other chargers - you are not limited to Chargepoint. Some hotels have chargers you can use for free. Fiats cannot use Tesla chargers. In the ChargePoint app Tesla chargers show up differently than standard L2s If you have any questions about a specific charger, feel free to reach out to me and we’ll figure it out together. I am slowly learning all the chargers in Austin and can help.

  • Are there any quirks to the Fiat EV? Anything I should know?

    Yes! To start the car, you turn the key all the way as if you are starting the engine. You’re really not, but I guess Fiat likes you to imagine you are. If you leave the lights on, they will go off when you turn the key off. For some strange reason they will still draw power. Not much, but they do. Very odd.

  • What's a DC Fast Charger?

    Well, the important thing is that DC Fast chargers are not compatible with the Fiat 500e. This has never been much of a problem, but now there are more of them. All the chargers at the new Whole Foods @ Plaza Saltillo are DC Fast. DC Fast chargers are the fastest available charger, similar to Tesla Superchargers.

  • I drove 2 miles and the range went down 10 miles! What's wrong?

    The fiat 500e's range is a calculated value. Most 500e fans and owners call it "the guess-o-meter" because it fluctuates so much. Its calculated not on your driving, but on the driving history over the last several trips, so its not very accurate to what you are doing. I drive these cars all the time and I use the % charge to understand the range. Its the green bar on the left of the dash.

  • I love driving this car - can I drive it anywhere?

    If you stay in town you'll almost always be near a charger. Austin Energy and Chargepoint have done a great job of installing chargers. If you drive the car out of town, be aware of the availability of chargers to help you get home. Dripping Springs is a charger desert :)

  • Hi hate reading - don't you have a video that explains everything?

    Yes! this video comes from fiat and really covers everything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zm8U5V6jrfU The only thing it doesn't cover is how to use ChargePoint. This guy does a good job explaining things: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN0Taj9CJ9k

In my rental with this car, it would not charge properly or reflect miles accurately. I will explain. The range in the listing states 90 miles. However, on average, it drops nearly 5 miles per mile driven. The first time I turned the car on and used it I drove approximately 15 miles and it dropped from 90 to 52. I then had a 22 mile drive to go before my next stop and The car dropped drastically to 11 miles so I found a charger. First charger didn’t work due to app issues (not Gregg’s fault obviously). I found another. I charged the car correctly at this station for 30+ minutes and I gained ~15 miles. every time and all signals pointed to successfully charging in terms of the gauges, lights, and messages on the dashboards of both the car and at the charging station we stopped at and still could never gain more than 10-15 miles of charge or the two times we used the in-car chord plugged into commercial buildings where the capacity increased ~8 miles in an 1.5h timespan the first stop and then the second stop the mileage range DECREASED after a 2h stop to charge. The fact is the experience and entire day was an utter inconvenience as we had to essentially plan our entire day and route around when and where we could charge and in total all day, we traveled less than 90 miles and had to charge four times to even have a chance at making our way back home, which we did not and did die in the middle of the country side and had to take a rideshare home. Gregg informed me that the car is very well-known as a “guess-o-meter” in the Fiat community after I was a few hours into my trip. This information was not ideal or just to find out when I’m 30 min from home with 11 miles of range before I may be stranded. That “helpful” information is not stated in the listing and in turn, the car facts are not actually accurate. I think you can agree with that. I was planning a huge 100-person event and I showed up 45-min late to my own event to charge. The entire experience was a hot and sweaty mess where we were finally stranded and broke down in 100 degree texas sun 20-30 min from home. I called Gregg and his voicemail stated that he “does not monitor the calls on that number due to high volume of sales calls” and did not offer an alternative to reach him other than the message app within the portal. We waited about 15 min on the side of the road before Gregg called back. I will say that he assured us he would take care of the car and we were “approved” to leave it so we did just that. I hope we can make this right by a refund of trip as well as the $50 rideshare cost to return home safely. I will say Gregg’s communication was consistent and although not always helpful for “in the moment” problem solving, he was available. The check in/pick up process was seamless also. All in all, I did not feel this car in its current condition was a safe nor convenient option to even be considered on the TURO platform.

Gregg's response

Sorry you had a bad trip in the fiat. These are great cars for driving around town, but if you drive them out of town with no plan for how to get home, its natural that you run the risk of getting stranded. Once I got the car back I had the battery pack tested and it is operating at 98%. I've done multiple trips in the car since then and it drives great. I'm always interested in feedback that make these cars easier to drive, so I added to the FAQ. Hopefully I can help future drivers.

This little fiat was super cool and great to drive. I needed a car at the last minute and was so excited that this was available at such a great cost. the electric lasted me throughout the nite and day and still had 25% left when I returned it. Gregg was super responsive and made check in and out super simple. I will definitely rent from him again.
