Description

Pick-up/return at my address only in Longmont, CO. Safe, fun, fuel-efficient hatch with ample modern amenities like heated front seats, 5-way-adjustable drivers seat, bluetooth, fog lights, and steering wheel audio controls. It also boasts class-leading horsepower and interior volume: it comfortably seats 5 adults, 2 adults + a bike (with folding rear row). The included Style Package comes with sport-oriented suspension tuning and 17in alloy wheels. The car is great for windy switch-back roads. It has brand new tires that are very safe and comfortable. Can be used in light snow/ice. My favorite feature besides the smooth, comfortable ride is the Driver Selectable Steering Mode. This is a tune for better steering feel. Comfort offers the most power steering-assistance, whereas sport offers the least. Generally, in the city I like Normal, however for highway driving Sport is my preferred setting. [Use the steering wheel symbol on the right side of the steering wheel] Please go slow over speed bumps, dips, train tracks, avoid potholes, etc...this car is not designed for off-roading! The engine requires at least 87-octane unleaded fuel, which is Mid-Grade here in Colorado. Please take care to not put regular in. No dogs allowed, as the materials in the interior are fabric and as such susceptible to stains, smells and scratches.

Extras (2)

Add optional Extras to your trip at checkout.

Post-trip cleaning

Return the car hassle free, without worrying about cleaning up after your trip. Does not cover upholstery cleaning, spills, stains, pet hair, or smoke removal.

$20/trip

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.

$30/trip

Guidelines

1. No smoking anything. If there is evidence of smoking, I will charge up to $50 fee for odor removal. 2. No dogs allowed! I am a dog (not cat) person, but the interior of my car has a premium feel and is susceptible to scratches, smells, etc.. 3. Use as a minimum mid-grade gasoline (87 octane) when filling up. 4. Exercise caution on bumpy roads and speed bumps/dips. 5. Report any incidents on your trip to me immediately. As a host who has experienced damage, it is much easier when we communicate and work together to resolve any concerns arising out of incidents. 6. I will ask for a post-trip sliding scale-cleaning fee $(15-30) depending upon the length of the trip/return condition. This is to help offset Turo's mandatory COVID cleaning and sanitization policy. As such, you should not worry about washing the car exterior or minor trash/crumbs prior to returning. Preferred is if you purchase the recommended extra: post trip-cleaning.

Faqs

  • Are dogs allowed?

    No! My interior is in top condition and I cherish it. Dogs will scratch the vinyl door panels, and upholstery, and create lingering smells, in addition to the hair cleanup I will have to perform. You will be charged a cleaning fee starting at $30 if evidence of dog presence is documented or perhaps even a damage claim depending on the severity.

  • Can I use regular gas or alternative fuel (e-85)?

    This GDI engine cannot use fuel other than unleaded of 87-pump-octane or higher rating. In other states not at altitude this is your 'regular' rating, so please remember to use mid-grade here! Other fuels can damage the fuel system and engine.

  • Does the toll pass means free toll roads?

    No. But it does means that I receive a discounted rate on use of the toll roads! I will invoice the tolls incurred and request reimbursement accordingly through the app.

  • Are there any weird quirks to operating the vehicle?

    If you park on a steep slope, please employ the emergency brake whilst parking, as this is safest and will prevent undue wear on the transmission!
