Parking details

Free street parking is available in my neighborhood. The long-term parking lot for SNA/John Wayne/Orange County airport, at 1512 Main Street in Irvine, is 5 minutes away.

Guidelines

• What’s Included: The car will always be clean upon pickup with a full tank of gas, Quick Start user's guide and complete owner’s manual. • Fuel: The gas tank is topped off prior to each rental. Please return it full of fuel. If not, a convenience fee of $10 will be charged, in addition to actual cost of the gas needed to top it off. • Cleaning: The car will be delivered to you sparkling clean. With normal use, car washing and vacuuming are not necessary. If the car is exceptionally dirty when returned, a $30 cleaning fee will be applied. • Food, drinks, pets & smoking: No, no, no and no. • Abuse: Please enjoy the Miata, but don’t drive it super-aggressively. The car’s GPS-based datalogger, 3-axis, motion-sensing gyro and other on-board electronics will rat you out every time. They record maximum speed, RPM, brake pressure and cornering Gs throughout each rental period. In some instances, a tire-depth gauge will be used to confirm their findings. • Vehicle information: Please don’t hesitate to ask about any of the vehicle’s features—where they’re at, what they’re for and how to use them--before, during or after the rental period. Call or text me at 949-279-0909.

Faqs

  • In addition to getting me from Point A to Point B, will I have a good time driving this Miata?
    Warning: Do not rent this car if you're allergic to pure driving excitement, have difficulty wiping off ear-to-ear grins or are in danger of falling in love with inanimate objects.
  • Does this car really have a manual transmission?
    Yes. Please don't consider renting it unless you have recent experience operating a clutch and can demonstrate very proficient stick-shifting skills.
  • Can I drive it on a racetrack?
    Um, no. This is a street car, not a Fast and Furious playtoy. Racing, track day and autocross use are not covered by insurance and are far outside Turo’s boundaries.
  • Will you know if I drive it like a race car?
    Yes, the car’s GPS-based datalogger, 3-axis, motion-sensing gyro and other on-board electronics will rat you out every time. They record maximum speed, RPM, brake pressure and cornering Gs throughout each rental period. If necessary, a tire-depth gauge will be used to confirm their findings.
  • What about the performance?
    "The new Miata's greatness shined through on the most mundane of streets. The genius of this car is how engaging it is even when you're going to the post office to buy stamps. It forges a connection between machine and driver at two-tenths like no other car I've ever driven. I absolutely love it. I need one of my own." — Dan Edmunds, Director, Vehicle Testing, Edmunds.com
  • How does the Miata compare to more expensive sports cars?
    MOTOR TREND CAR OF THE YEAR & BEST DRIVER’S CAR COMPETITIONS Mazda's magic Miata scored a runner up finish in Motor Trend’s 2016 Car of the Year competition: http://www.motortrend.com/news/mazda-mx-5-miata-2016-motor-trend-car-of-the-year-finalist More impressively, it placed third in the magazine’s Best Driver’s Car contest, where it went head-to-head with exotic machines that cost up to 10 times as much (Bentley Continental GT3-R, $341,000) and out-muscle it by nearly 500 horsepower (Corvette Z06, 650 HP). It was bested only by a 503-pony Mercedes AMG GT and a $104K Porsche Cayman GT4. No doubt this was due in part to the Miata weighing between 700 and 2400 pounds less than the other nine contestants: http://www.motortrend.com/cars/mercedes-benz/amg-gt/2016/2015-motor-trend-best-drivers-car
  • Is it fun to drive?
    "The Miata is all about fun. ... It's not about practicality or comfort, or luxury, or anything that doesn't have to do with fun. If you can't fit in it, blame your genetics. If the trunk is too small, you have too much stuff. If it's too stiff or too loud, you lost sight of your childhood.” — Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor, Edmunds.com
  • How cool is it having a hardtop that transforms the Miata into an open-air car?
    "One area where the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF overshadows the soft top Mazda MX-5 Miata is the way it looks. This particular model doesn’t have the afterthought quality of the third-gen MX-5 Roadster Coupe. Not only is the roof mechanism is different, but a closer look at the MX-5 RF reveals flying buttresses. With the motor-driven roof up, it’s a serene coupe. With it down, the MX-5 RF is a freewheeling Targa. It’s the best of both worlds, so to speak." — Mircea Panait, Editor, AutoEvolution.com
  • I'm 6 feet tall. Will I fit?
    "The new MX-5 is considerably more accommodating of my lanky frame than any previous Miata, but I was able to settle in comfortably with the seat in its rearmost position, and the seat itself proved to be supportive for what turned out to be an eight-hour trip." — Dan Edmunds

This being my first time using Turo, Eric was extremely patient, communicative, and flexible with me which lead to a stress free and enjoyable rental period and Turo experience. Eric was able to work with me on time and location of return and delivery as well as making sure everything was satisfactory during the rental.

Eric was just a great guy; A true enthusiast looking to let others share the fun and joy of his Mx-5 rf. Not only did he go about the process in a professional manner, but he also went above and beyond to ensure I got the most out of my trip. I would definitely rent from him again. To notch fella lending out his superb car.

Outstanding drive - Eric was super easy to deal with, great communication and flexibility made pick up and drop off easy. Can't beat the fun-to-drive aspect of the Miata, either - great driving car, made even cooler (and more usable) with the retractable hard top!

Eric's Miata was lots of fun to drive. Eric was very professional and also knew a lot about his car and other sporty cars. I would rent from him again without hesitation. Highly recommended!
