Description

Decontamination and sanctification procedures are in place for your health and safety. If you need delivery, ensure the filter for delivery to your desired location is enabled before booking. For those looking to row their own gears and zip around in a fuel-efficient vehicle. The Mazda 3 handles very well, will get you where you need to go and averages 35 MPG with mixed driving. For being a "compact" this has lots of leg room in both the front and back. Will come with a phone mount, charging cable, and audio cable. Let me know if you need additional cables. Everything works as expected and I have not had any issues with the car as my personal vehicle in the last three years of ownership. I work full time during the week but I am flexible. If I am not available, we can coordinate a contactless pick up. Something I have learned on Turo, it is much easier to book the vehicle and pick up later than the time requested and dropping off earlier than your time and end the trip though Turo. Once you have the car booked, you are booked! Please return the car in the same condition in which you received it. If you feel there is not enough time before your trip ends to clean the car, there are extras for cleaning the interior and exterior. This can be done before or during the trip. Just send a message that you would like to add the cleaning and it will be added to the reimbursement after the trip is complete. Tolls can also be sent to reimbursement after the trip ends as well as Colorado goes by license plate. Make sure to change your settings in the driver profile to include manual transmissions. Check out the FAQs for additional information. For this vehicle, there is no smoking or vaping and a $200 professional detail will be passed on if smoking did occur in the car at any point in the trip. Since this is Colorado, be mindful of the weather. Passenger Vehicle Chain Law can be in effect at anytime specifically on State Route I-70. Please do not risk your safety and be on the roads during those severe weather events. There are fines associated with driving under these conditions.

Extras (2)

Add optional Extras to your trip at checkout.

Post-trip cleaning

Exterior cleaning and interior sweep. No need to stop by the car wash. Pays for my time there and the wash. Does not cover upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal.

$15/trip

Prepaid refuel

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

$40/trip

Parking details

There is driveway parking in front of the house.

Guidelines

As a courtesy for the next guest, please vacuum the vehicle prior to drop off if you did not pay for the cleaning extra. The car will be ready with a full tank of fuel and is expected to be full for the next guest. Make sure that your license matches your account name exactly. If not, this may result in a canceled booking.

Faqs

  • How do I enter reverse?

    Push the shifter all the way down, then way to the left and up. This is a safety feature in newer manuals. I will demonstrate before leaving.

  • Will I be charged a late fee?

    If you are going to be late, please let me know, then contact Turo to extend the time. More than an hour or if there is a back to back request and a late fee may be charged. Please see FAQ #5 for more info. It is better to request the car for longer and return early then return late as there may be another guest who has booked.

  • Why is there a deposit?

    Turo implements a deposit of $100-400 and it varies on the driver and vehicle so I cannot say for sure how much it would be. This covers incidentals such as over mileage or post-trip cleaning.

  • Do I have to worry about hills in a manuel?

    Fret not! This car does have hill start assist. No riding the clutch on a hill in this car! It will hold you in place for about 7 seconds wheels you are getting into first gear.

  • Are you flexible with pickup and drop off time?

    Of course! If you need more or less time with the car, contact Turo or make the change in the trip. Keep in mind this may result in fees if the time is over a certain amount of hours. I do not have control over these fees. This is done to prevent double bookings, lapses in insurance, late drop-offs, and miscommunication. The only change I can make on my end is canceling the trip.

  • How do I start the car?

    Depress the clutch, push the start button! You are set!

  • Where can I clean the car?

    There is a self serve car wash called Safari Car wash about 3 minutes away. They have vacuums, shampoo, and other car cleaning supplies. An automatic option is B & B Auto Wash about 5 minutes away. They typically send me a $2 coupon for an automatic wash so let me know if you are headed there and I can send the code along! There is also a loaf-n-jug on Hampden that has an automatic wash and gas in one location.

  • Can I use the toll roads?

    You can. I will send a reimbursement for the tolls when the notice comes in the mail typically 30-60 days after using the toll road.

  • Do you deliver?

    Due to working full time, logistics and extra costs accrued for both of us, I do not offer delivery.
