Parking details

Macaron is street parked, but it's VERY easy to find spots around my neighborhood. You should be able to easily find a parking spot around the home address!

First, Gregory is really nice, good communication. However, he changed the pick up time for my trip from 9:00 am to 7:00 am because he wanted to go on a bike ride....Changed all my plans, and then he unlocked it virtually. Now the car, a bit dirty, some hair that looked like pet hair in the back area, and crumbs, dust and debris on most surfaces...gross for a neat freak like me. This car is supposed to get 35-40 mpg and I was totally surprised when I had only gone 15 miles and the first bar disappeared, 10 more miles, a second bar, and so on till I texted and told him. He said the bars weren't an indication of mileage....YES they are! I went to Santa Cruz where it's sunny and warm and when I turned on the AC the most horrible loud sound started. He said he never heard any complaints with this car, but had issues with his other cars. Then there was the check engine light that was on, he said it was due to the gas cap, which made no sense to me. When I filled up the gas in Santa Cruz before my departure I expected to have to top off when I got back like I usually do with these model cars and there was no change in the gas bars, which means the gas gage is also not working. Also, the brakes squeek really loud. This car needs a major tune up and some TLC as far as detailing the inside. Again Gregory is really nice, but I made the effort, because I'm curtious, to return the car washed and vacuumed. I hope he gives this car the attention it needs before the next renter so they don't have to deal with all these issues that I did.

Great little car! Perfect for short city drives but also has quite the endurance for weekend road trips. And parking will never be an issue :)
