Car is in very good shape. Can't claim it is clean on the outside as it's street parked and when people use it, who knows where it has been. The inside is relatively clean. There's some stains on the rear seats, but they're harmless and unremovable, apparently. I have an attachment to allow users to plug in a 3rd generation or later iPod (not applicable to the iPhone!) for music using the dashboard's audio display. Good mileage: about 40 mpg in San Francisco city, better in other cities as they're not as hilly. And speaking of street parked, please realize that parking in the neighborhood is very difficult. So plan your return accordingly for available parking. If you need to know more, contact me about the parking situation.<more> OK, using the car: the key is located in the car, I will contact you telling you where the key is. You need to open the door via the iPhone app or contacting GetAround for remote entrance. I will not be there to open the door for you, thankyewverymuch. Insert the key into the dock located between the steering column and the gear shifter. Step on the brake and press the I/O button to start the car. The parking brake is the leftmost pedal. Step on it to release; step on it to re-engage when parking the car. With regards to parking, you MUST use the parking brake when parking back in the Russian Hill/Nob Hill neighborhood. Also, you MUST curb the wheels (it's in the state's DMV driving code). That means, angle the wheels into the curb. This must be done on hills, but to be sure, do it even on relatively flat areas, as the police are more than happy to offer you a ticket. Speaking of tickets, any tickets you get will be forwarded to GetAround. They will process and pay the ticket and then bill you for the amount. It's the simplest way for all of us to handle tickets. (For example, if you were to drive south across the Golden Gate Bridge, I will receive a toll in the mail. I'll send that to GetAround, they'll figure out who was using the car at that time, and bill accordingly. Sometimes, it might even be me!) I recommend, when driving on the freeway, and there's plenty of clear driving, to set the cruise control. You will automatically gain about an extra 3 mpg by using the cruise control. In the city, around the hilly area, you're SOL in regards to getting good gas mileage. On flat areas, use the pulse-and-glide method to stretch out your gas mileage. I've done this and managed to get close to 60 mpg. Please note: Limit of 200 miles per day. Renters will be billed $0.40 per mile for any additional mileage.
