This was a fun car to drive. The pictures were a little misleading. And when i picked up the car someone had broken the trunk lock. Owner advised me to “just use the button on the inside” so I did. Everything was fine until i dropped the car off and, of course the trunk button stopped working with my luggage in the trunk. As of the moment I am writing this post Nick has promised to mail me my bag. But he hasn’t sent me a tracking number. I bought a lot of gifts that were in my bag and a few perishables that are now spoiled. No word yet from Nick. Look, this car was so much fun to drive. It really is the perfect car for Honolulu if you are a one person party. But it is very dismaying that at this moment Nick hasn’t followed through and even let me know if he has sent my luggage to me yet. He seemed like a nice guy on the phone. But it doesn’t stop the fact that my luggage is still on the most remote land mass on the planet, and i am back home, out a couple hundred dollars in perishables and all of my gifts and souvenirs from my lovely trip home to Honolulu. Make sure Nick has completely fixed the trunk lock before you rent this car. The car remains a lot of fun to drive.

What a great memorable time we had thanks to such a great host. He replies instantly, is flexible, genuinely only wants you to have a wonderful time here in Honolulu. The car was friggin amazing. I got an s2000 at home but never had a chance to drive a miata. The miata was perfect for the twisty roads of hawaii and more comfortable than an s2000 making it a perfect vacation car for hawaii. Oh also the parking was super easy since it fits anywhere.

My first Turo experience and it was not so smooth. Nick did not tell me the pick up location was changed until I actually messaged him about an hour before. A 5 minute walk from our hotel to the pickup spot turned out to be an extra $30 uber round trip ride to and from the changed location. If I did not message him I’d be looking for a car that wasn’t there. My wife and I had to cancel other plans just to make it to our scheduled tour. Car was fun but a lot more rough than advertised. Mismatched paint, clear coat peeling, car idled rough etc. Also a couple safety concerns with the airbag light going on and off and old tires were starting to crack. I mentioned it to him and he told me I can return the car. Seemed like he really wanted me to cancel the trip from the beginning so it doesn’t look bad on his end. Other than that driving the car was fun. It’s a Mazda so I trusted its reliability and having a Miata back home myself, I knew I’d enjoy driving it on the coast with a manual gearbox anyway. Turo and this experience was way more expensive than what it should be. $130 for a 12 year old car.

Cool little car. Pick up and return was easy.

Very convenient location and cute little convertible. Might not fit anyone that’s over 6 foot or more than 250lbs. Also a fairly old car which made a bunch of strange noises when idling. Did the job and got us around the island.
