Description

2022 Updated Guidelines Tell me your trip plan. I already know your name, what times you selected, and which car you want, so write useful things instead. Your booking request should say why you chose the particular car, how many seats you need, how much cargo, where you're going, how you plan to arrive on time for pickup, whether you know how to drive manual, maybe even what kind of cars you like in general. The suitability of a car differs whether you're riding with family, shooting a music video, in a wedding, on a date, going for a fun drive. If your selected car doesn't come back from its previous trip, I need to know what other options would work for you. If I'm unaware that you're flying in, I might cancel your trip if you're delayed in the air and unresponsive. I love helping my customers have fun and memorable experiences with my cars, so help me out by telling me what you're doing. Most customers can stop reading now, but the difficult customers should continue. If you don't want to tell me your trip plan or there's an issue with it, I can't directly ask you to cancel. But remember that if I don't tell you everything looks good with your trip, Turo lets me cancel a few trips free of charge right up to the start of the booking. In fact, the way we're graded on approval rate, cancellation rate, response time, and ratings makes it better for me to approve and cancel some trips than decline them from the start, so that should answer your question, "Why did you approve my trip if you weren't sure it would work?" With any peer-to-peer service, it's always important to be in agreement with your service provider. An attitude of "The app promises me you will..." will only teach you that the app can't really make anyone do anything. This is true whether you're doing car-share, ride-share, home-share, food delivery, etc. The apps make promises to both parties that the app has no way of delivering on and the consequences for failing to deliver are often too low. A verbal guarantee from a reputable person is worth more than a guarantee from a sharing economy app. I'm one of the oldest and most loyal Turo hosts because it's a great company and always improving. We want you to be a repeat customer, so do your part in communicating, letting me know how I can help you, being flexible within reason, and helping out the Turo community. Read my reviews to get a sense of what to expect, and know that the last-minute cancellations you see might be people who tested my personal guidelines compliance policy. :) Vehicle-specific Details: Chevy Volt Premium, Bose sound system, backup camera and navigation. This car is optimized for individual ownership, running electric for the daily commute and on the gas generator for highway trips. I thought it might not be great for Turo renters. But it's actually pretty cool that you can manage the battery state of charge better than any other hybrid. Doing mountain passes in Western Mass or Vermont, you can fill the battery as you descend and use up the power as you climb the hills. That's difficult to manage properly with my other hybrids, they fill the battery too quickly and you lose regenerative braking on the descent. The drivetrain has two electric motors and a 1.4L gas engine that can connect in various configurations via a planetary gearset, one of the most novel engineering designs I've seen. In the main mode, a brake holds the ring fixed while the big motor drives the sun gear and the planets drive the wheels. At higher speeds, the smaller motor drives the ring gear to run in series and keep the big motor rpm from rising too high. To extend the range, the small motor will disconnect from the ring and connect to the engine to act as a generator. And for highway speeds, a clutch will reconnect the small motor (along with the engine) to the ring gear so now the engine and small motor are driving the ring and the big motor drives the sun. Power variations are achieved by varying small motor current and speed variations achieved by varying big motor speed, which is why the gas engine remains at a fairly constant speed and load even in highway driving. Understanding how it works explains why when you floor the pedal, it pauses for a split second to reconfigure the clutches and then takes off with both motors putting out the full ~150hp. It also helps you understand why running Hold mode or Mountain mode on the highway makes more sense. At higher speeds, both the ring and sun need to turn to drive the planets, so it's a good time to fire up the gas engine and not lose energy to charging and discharging or sending electricity around. This car uses the EZ-Pass transponder number 02104797873. Please confirm the transponder number before your trip.

Charvak's Volt was comfortable and reliable, making it a very pleasant drive. Charvak himself was very communicative and helpful. If you're looking for a day trip or short road trip, I'd highly recommend Charvak and his car.
