Description

A fantastic silver Prius! Great mileage (45-50mpg). Takes regular gas. Cheapest way to get around. AUX in jack! Backup camera. FIrst time renters get $25 off with this code: https://turo.com/c/sjaf2z it only works if you use it to create an account from what I understand. A note on over-mileage: I am absolutely willing to work with you on miles. I give good discounts for over-mileage to good renters who upload the required photos and follow the directions, and inform me about the overmileage Just ask me! Thanks Note this is an older vehicle and has its share of scrapes from San Francisco. It's also parked on the street so it may not be super clean. If you want to get a wash, I'll pay you back for it. Thanks for your understanding! Note also that the rear quarter panel window (the little triangular one) was broken recently. I've ordered a new one and it arrives May 1. So I've reduced the price accordingly until then. It's sealed up and I've road tested it at highway speed and it's fine as a temporary fix. The last photo shows the window.

Parking details

Parked on the street. Even though SF is not easy, where it's parked in SOMA there are spots virtually every day in the afternoon and evenings are no problem at all. The only exception is Monday night because of street sweeping. I know the streets around here very well, so ask me - I can help you find a spot. Text me if you have questions or need help. If you have to return in the morning you can park in the lot at 40 Oak Grove St. If it's late morning (11am or later) most days during business hours I can allow you to park at a 2 hr spot or at a meter - but only by arrangement via text.

Guidelines

Tolls on bay area bridges are automated you'll see them in a couple weeks after your rental. Please don’t take my Prius to the desert in the middle of summer. It’s not the right car for that. the Prius is an excellent commuting and city car for normal climates. The desert in California, as if it needs explaining, is a furnace. It needs a conventional car. You can destroy the hybrid battery in those environments - batteries are sensitive to extreme heat. It's happened a few times now with my Priuses. Thanks!

The Prius did its job! Took this lil whip on a trip to Yosemite. Had a fantastic time and enjoyed the great gas mileage $$

CJ was a good communicator quick to respond. The car was nice to drive and was easy to locate.

This was the first time I used Turo and it was a great experience. C.J. was helpful and patient, helping me install my baby’s car seat at the airport. He responded promptly to all my communications and was flexible about pickup and drop off times. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent from C.J. again!
