Description

BEWARE: this sports car generates involuntary smiles for anyone who drives it. Quick, tiny and balanced, Mazda's MX-5 Miata is the quintessential roadster. You won't be able to stop grinning, as the gokart-like handling wills you to enjoy every turn, while the short gearing all but forces you to rev to redline and enjoy each opportunity to accelerate. Equipped with a mechanical limited slip differential, you can enjoy the incredible limits of this Miata Club confidently. Drop the top, row through the gears, and toss it effortlessly into corners (in 2nd gear at 30mph while on the gas). The cherry on top is, no matter how hard you drive it, it will still get incredible gas mileage - up to 40MPG, making it the perfect road trip car for a stay in-town, or a top-down excursion to Sedona, Flagstaff, Tuscon, or even the Grand Canyon! When it comes to creature comforts, Bluetooth audio and HD Radio will pump your favorite tunes through the 9-speaker premium BOSE sound system, and the generous 7-inch infotainment with dealership-added GPS (not standard on the club) makes it incredibly easy to navigate through the many custom options the car allows for, as well as the back roads of Arizona. I installed an OEM backup camera for extra safety. It also has a sport-tuned suspension with Bilstein shocks for a sportier ride, while remaining comfortable for daily driving. This MX-5 Miata is the ultimate weekend getaway car! So what are you waiting for?! CAN'T RENT MANUAL? If you're trying to rent this car and Turo says you aren't approved for a manual, you just need to go into your Account, find the Transmission section, and select "Yes, I'm an expert" and save changes to then be eligible to drive a manual. RECOMMENDED PLACES TO DRIVE: My sports cars beg to be taken out of town for some real fun. For winding local roads and beautiful views, you can't go wrong with a quick drive up to Dobbins Lookout on South Mountain in Phoenix (15mi), or taking the Apache Trail through the Superstitions past Canyon Lake to Tortilla Flats (50mi). For more remote excursions, highways 89/89A through Prescott, Jerome and Sedona offer signature Arizona experiences across a variety of gorgeous landscapes, climates and elevations. Mt. Lemmon in Tucson offers a 30 mile trip up 7,000ft of scenic mountains. And of course, there’s always the Grand Canyon!

Parking details

If you need to leave your personal vehicle, you can park around the corner 4 houses down, across the street from the following address, where you should go unnoticed and not inconvenience any residents: 16630 S 38th Way, Phoenix, AZ 85048. Unfortunately, I have a grumpy neighbor and a very active HOA who have begun to hassle and even fine me about Turo being against the CC&Rs, so avoiding attention and activity at my address is important Thanks for your understanding.

Guidelines

Cleaning the vehicle: Please avoid automatic washes when possible, the car should be hand-washed only, and vacuumed and wiped down to match the condition it left in. You have the option to do this yourself or you can add the $30 “extra” to have me do it. Otherwise a reasonable cleaning charge may be applied via Turo once your trip has ended. Premium (91+) fuel only: 91+ premium fuel required. Please return full, as it should have gone out. Mileage: Please pay attention to your trip’s mileage allowance,. You’re more than welcome to use as many additional miles as you desire, but expect to pay Turo’s required additional per-mile fee. No smoking or pets: Evidence of either will result in cleaning fees. Parking, trees, birds, water: Please avoid parking under a tree or area where birds might hang out. Tree sap and bird droppings are extremely hard on wax and paint. Sprinklers and rain can even damage the clear coat. If anything happens to the exterior that might damage it, please immediately rinse/spray the affected area with water/hose until it comes off, do NOT wipe off, and just let me know, I can carefully clean afterwards, and would be appreciative of the heads up. Fees may be incurred otherwise, particularly if paint is damaged from wiping. If covered overnight parking like a garage or carport is not available, I am happy to provide a car cover for protection at no charge! Snow/ice/salted roads: Please avoid snowy/icy areas if possible, and if you do pass through them, please wash the vehicle immediately after to get salt off immediately. Any related salt damage to the vehicle will be documented. Accessories: Please ensure all provided accessories stay in the vehicle. OBD2 GPS device: The vehicle is equipped with an OBD2 GPS tracking device mandated by insurance. It tracks your location/mileage at all times. The device is under the dash/steering wheel, and may protrude slightly. Please exercise care to not damage the device with your feet, particularly when getting in and out of the vehicle. If it comes unplugged for any reason, plug it back in immediately. If the device is damaged, there will be a $300 fee charged. Roadside assistance: If you experience a mechanical issue, contact me first please, as I may know what the issue is and might be able to assist in-person much faster than roadside. Turo’s Roadside Assistance: 1-866-735-2901.

Faqs

  • What if I need additional miles for my trip?

    You're welcome to use as many miles as you need. Guests frequently take my vehicles to Sedona, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, and even out-of-state to San Diego and Las Vegas. However, my amazing sports cars also require consistent maintenance to remain safe and reliable, and so I will accurately log any mile overages through Turo, per their policy, without exception. Please ensure you have an accurate estimate of how many miles you’ll need for your trip to avoid an overage fee you were not expecting.

Loved this rental. I had the Miata out for a spin for a three day trip and drove all over the place but without the worry of getting bored! Every thing about this was fun, smooth and exciting! I was especially impressed with David’s timely replies to my questions and his kindness! Super easy to grab and go, and the return was simple too. Thanks again!

David's response

Sorry the political climate put a damper on your trip Venia, but I'm glad you got to have some fun in the Miata still, and that you at least found your rental convenient :) Hit me up if you come back to AZ later this year!

David's Miata was a joy to ride. I rented it as a surprise for my husband's birthday, he's a big miata fan. We drove from N Scottsdale to wickenburg and then Prescott. The drive was a lot of fun with the top down. Communication with David was effortless. His car was spotless, would recommend!

David is awesome and his Miata is wonderful! Would recommend to any enthusiast in town who is looking for literally the perfect car. I thought my bmw was fun, but this car has surpassed any vehicular experience I've had. Absolutely excellent. Pickup and return were very easy. This was my first trip on turo and I wouldnt change anything about it.

David's response

Thank you for the kind words, Rachel! I'm elated you were so taken by the Miata - it's my favorite car as well!
