Description

Nearly New 2020 Polaris Slingshot SL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION! - You read that right, this slingshot has the new automated transmission from the factory so you do not need to know how to drive a manual. No stick shift! New removable canvas roof! The frame stays in place but the canvas roof can be easily removed if desired for full immersion in your adventure. Check out WCSlingshotRental.com for more details before booking here on TURO. **Our listed rates do not include TURO fees, insurance, extras, taxes etc. TURO has limited booking options so be sure to communicate what you need before we confirm your booking. I can adjust the booking page to fit your requests. If you don't see an option you need for timing etc, please contact me and I will see if it's possible to accommodate. No motorcycle license required! Must be 21 or over with a valid drivers license and approved by TURO. Ride the Blue Ridge Parkway or sling through the Great Smoky Mountains National park in this sweet blue ride! Convenient standard pickup and drop off just outside of Cherokee, NC right off the 4-lane highway. Other pickup or delivery may be available so please ask and we will update the booking page to get you the options you need if possible. Some dates may require multi-day reservations. Those may not be detailed on the calendar in this booking system, but I will notify you prior to confirmation if your request cannot be accommodated or has different requirements. Some dates, while the vehicle is available to be rented it may not be available for pickup/drop off so arrangements will need to be made accordingly. We will communicate any such situation prior to confirming your reservation. Be safe and have a great ride! We are here to make your trip as easy and enjoyable as possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions before, during or after your trip as we're here to help! Details, Limitations, Restrictions: This slingshot is for safe, enjoyable adventures around western North Carolina and surrounding areas. Do NOT drive recklessly, race, speed, or drive this unit on a track. Performance monitor in place to track abuse. We will check tire tread before/after to determine excessive wear. Feel free and give it some juice here and there, but please, do not burn out or race! You will be charged for the cost of repairs or replacement of parts and accessories including tires for excessive wear. Please, help us keep this unit ready for everyone to enjoy. There is to be no smoking, tobacco, or alcohol in this ride (Cigarettes, Cigars, Weed, Vaping, E-Cigs, etc.) An additional $150 cleaning fee will be assessed if this rule is violated. The slingshot will be clean when you pick it up, please return it reasonably clean. It does not have to be spotless, but if you gathered significant dirt, please wash it or wipe it down well before returning. Excessively dirt upon return will result in an additional cleaning fee. You will be charged for all related expenses and time while assisting you including but not limited flat tires, lost keys and other issues and anything required after you drop off the vehicle. There is no heat or a/c in this vehicle. Eye Protection - Driver and passenger must wear eye protection (sunglasses or other goggles are fine). No eye protection is provided. Helmets - It is best/safest for driver and rider to wear a DOT approved helmet. Some people may tell you it's not necessary. Ultimately, it depends on where you are and how law enforcement interprets the current law. We recommend always wearing a helmet in the slingshot. Some helmets are available to you but you may want to provide your own for a perfect fit or style. Should you be stopped by law enforcement, you are responsible for any decision to wear or not wear a helmet and any consequences of that choice. Fuel - please return the slingshot with a full tank of premium. There are gas stations within about 5 miles of the pickup/drop-off point in either direction. If you choose not to refuel, a $50 refueling fee will be charged unless you selected the prepaid refuel extra when booking. This slingshot is a road vehicle and should not be taken off road. Traction control should remain activated. Avoid gravel roads and driveways whenever possible. If you do have to travel on gravel or dirt or loose material, please be careful and drive slowly to avoid flinging rocks and sliding. Mechanical failure is a possibility with any vehicle and is caused by normal usage. It does not include flat tires, broken levers, vehicle body damage, or any issue caused by the renters operation or due to possession of vehicle and may result in an additional fee. In the event of unprovoked mechanical error, and at the sole discretion of the owner, arrangements will be worked out on a case by case basis. You are completely responsible for any accident, incident, damage, ticket, citation and wear. I may choose to cancel the trip at any time, for any reason. The terms, fees and details are subject to change without notice prior to any confirmed booking.

Absolutely fantastic. Hands down the best way to experience western North Carolina. Highly recommend to anyone - Jon is extremely accommodating and takes the time to explain the vehicle to you inside and out. Can’t wait to rent again!

This was the most amazing ride! Drives well. Jon was the perfect host!! He made sure we were comfortable with everything and was just a call away if we needed him. We rented for 2 days. You could go somewhere else to rent . . BUT DON'T. You will have a better time renting from Jon. Thank you Jon!!

Jon's response

Thanks Mary and John! So glad y’all had a great time and the weather cooperated enough for you this weekend.

Was part of a group that rented both blue (automatic) and white (manual) Slingshot and drove the Blue Ridge Parkway. Jon was a spectacular host - friendly, communicative, professional and punctual! The equipment was all in excellent condition and an absolute blast to zip around in. Cannot recommend Jon, and the Slingshot experience, too highly, and will be returning to recreate the same trip again soon!

Jon's response

So glad y’all had a great time. We hope to see you again!

Polaris Slingshot 2020 with automatic transmission handles well. Good experience. Plenty of power. Fun. However, the automatic transmission needs to be refined (jerky at low speeds), and the engine is loud.

Jon's response

Thanks for renting with us. Polaris certainly has some work to do on their brand new autodrive setup. Under 30mph, it doesn’t seem to know what to do in addition to more squeals and noise than previous generations of the manual. We are glad you had a good experience with us.

Hi everyone. If you want to have a blast in Western Carolina and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and visit Biltmore Estate and Asheville city proper, make sure you book a Sling Shot or two with Jon. We rented both the manual and automatic and my wife and kids had a blast. The drive up to Mt. Pisgah with the wind blowing in your hair of an open cockpit is amazing. Jon delivered both vehicles to a convenient spot only a 15 min drive from our cabin in Black Mountain, NC. The vehicles were well maintained. Jon and his team were gracious trip hosts. Professional and super friendly and nice. Job well done!!! You made my wife’s 50th birthday celebration a dream come true. Another check on her bucket list. Thank you.

Jon's response

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are so glad y’all had a good time celebrating!
