Description

Because this is a manual, read the manual transmission drive test instructions at http://www.insightrental.com/drivetest Also, check my profile for booking rules. I won't feel bad about cancelling your trip last minute if you've violated them, so it's in your interest to cooperate. This is the Holden VF Commodore, built all the way in Australia and imported here as the nameless Chevy, just SS. It's supposed to stand for Sports Sedan or something. Everyone compares it to the BMW M5. It has a Corvette motor, transmission, and suspension. LS3 V8, Tremec 6060, Magneride shocks. I want one in the elusive Jungle Green metallic. There's one on Turo, but his is automatic. I'd even buy one in Orange Blast metallic. Until then, we have the Red Hot II to match my Cruze. These cars are perfect collector cars. They never depreciate, just look at the Pontiac G8 GXP. I expect most renters to seek this out because there are only 3 on Turo and mine is the only manual. But some of you will book it just because you need a sedan and everything else is sold out. In that case, you're in for a treat. Hopefully the car converts you into a car enthusiast. Oh, it has cool features like a heads-up-display on the windshield and self parking, where it steers for you into a parking spot.

Unlimited mileage

Unlimited miles

$150/day

Prepaid refuel

Save time, make drop-off a breeze, and avoid additional fees by adding this Extra, which allows you to return my car at any fuel level. Price includes up to a full tank of gas.

$45/trip

Post-trip cleaning

This is actually pre-trip cleaning, but Turo doesn't list that. I'll vacuum and wash the car so it's more like what you'd get at a rental agency vs. a personal car share. You still have to bring it back without food, pet hairs, or a dirty inside.

Charvak was great! Extremely accommodating and even picked us up from our hotel. The car was very fun to cruise to the coast. Low mileage well cared for car.

Hard to know what to comment on first, Charvak's easy going and accommodating ways or the smile that the Chevy SS left on my face hours after turning it in. Conceived and built down under in Australia and imported to the US by Chevy as an SS, this car might be the ultimate, "do anything" muscle car sedan. The entire driving experience is flawless in this car. It makes all the right sounds, is a proper manual shift car and rewards you when you choose the skinny pedal on the right with a symphony of exhaust notes that only gets better the more you drive it. Rented this car for some backroad touring throughout Vermont and I would do it again in heartbeat. The Chevy SS was built for country road carving with 415 hp, rock solid Brembo brakes and the perfect and smooth 6 speed manual transmission. Charvak is a great host that accommodated my last minute rental and was extremely communicative throughout. I will definitely be back renting from Charvak again.

The car was fun, Charvak was amazing and the overall Turo experience was far better than anything I've experienced with the big rental chains. I'll definitely be back for another trip.
