Description

Hello, My name is Maybelle the Mazda MX-5 Miata. Maybelle is from the form of Mabel, meaning "my beautiful one" in French, and I think you'll agree it's a fitting name when you see me. I'm a beautiful black Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible with a high-contrast leather tan interior, 6-speed manual transmission, and oh so much fun to drive and cruise around with the top down. There is nothing better in Oregon, especially when the sun is out and shining! Drawing inspiration from the light and nimble British roadsters of the '60s, the Mazda Miata offers a zippy engine, go-kart-like handling, a quick-dropping top and trim, classic proportions. Maybelle boasts a sporty inline 2.0L 4-cylinder DOHC engine, 166 hp and 140 ft-lbs of torque. Equipped with the Grand Touring trim, this Miata is loaded! She has goodies like a Bose stereo, heated leather seats. sport-tuned suspension with Bilstein shocks and a limited-slip differential. The Mazda MX-5 Miata is, and always has been, a meticulously engineered sports car for hard-core purists. Listed in the 2000 Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling two-seat convertible in history. Maybelle is so light, so fluid, so balanced and slick — she is still the best. Zoom-Zoom!

Parking details

Maybelle has dedicated parking in Lovejoy Garage located at 1331 NW Lovejoy Street, Portland OR 97209. The garage can be most easily accessed by walking up the car ramp or heading up through Safeway. She is parked on the P4 or P5 parking level (the first level is for Safeway customers) in spots 401-556. Her keys stay inside, and hand-off can be done remotely to unlock at the start of your trip! It's cool and makes renting super easy as I can accommodate just about all pick-up or drop-off time that works for you. If you're coming from Portland International Airport (PDX) Downtown Portland is also easy to access. Just hop on the red line MAX ($2.50) and get off at either the downtown China Town stop and walk, or the Galleria/SW 10th Ave Max Station and transfer to either the NS Line or the A-loop of the street car (same ticket). Then exit at NW 10th and Johnson street and walk the 5 blocks to the lot.

Guidelines

* Keys: Always stay locked inside. She is remotely unlocked/locked and the start/end of the trip. Makes sharing super easy for everyone! * Pets: Pets may be considered if asked ahead of time so that a seat cover can be provided. Damage and excess fur may result in additional cleaning/damage charges at end of trip. * Smoking: Not allowed ever in Turo cars. Neither tobacco or electronic. You will get charged a $250 cleaning fee if evidence of smoking is found. * Fuel: Bernie will always be full of gas at the start of your trip. Please refuel when done to avoid additional charges and a $10 fueling fee. This car requires 92 octane. * Driving: Please be extra careful when driving around. Maybelle is very low to the ground and Portland has many high curbs. Please be careful with her front end!

Faqs

  • What passes are needed in Oregon?
    There are no toll roads or bridges to worry about. However, many mountain trails require a Northwest Forest Pass, and if you're heading to the snow a Sno-Park permit is required in designated Sno-Parks from November 1 – April 30. These can be easily purchased from the REI which is conveniently located right next door @ 14th and Johnson.
  • Who should I contact if I'd like to buy or sell a home in Oregon?
    Just talk to my dad. His business cards are inside, feel free to take one.
  • Can you accommodate last minute trips?
    Yes absolutely! With Maybelle's remote lock/unlock you can pick her up and return at anytime that is convenient for you. I try to instantly respond to trip requests, so if you don't get a response in under an hour please feel free to call or text me directly.

It was really fun driving the Miata and the manual transmission is very smooth. Samuel is very easy to communicate with and he was delightfully flexible. The car is parked in an easily accessible garage and he can remotely lock/unlock the car which makes key handoff a breeze. Aslo, I booked totally last minute and he was still able to accomodate me. Sure, I could have rented from Hertz or Enterprise but this kind of business model makes more sense. I deal with a person who loves their car, who cares about me as a customer, who will accomodate me, and isn't all about getting my last penny from me. I think it makes sense sometimes to get a commercial rental car service involved but with a gorgeous car like this and a very pleasant person like Samuel, I think it's far more gratifying to rent peer to peer.

Samuel was profession, communicated well, and his car was wonderful to drive!

First time using Turo, wasn't sure what to expect. The whole process was smooth as silk. Joe was very quick to respond and made it possible for my wife and I to take the Miata up to wine country on less than an hour notice. Great experience!
