About the car

HALF A CAR
- half the seats
- half the engine
- half the weight
- half the fuel consumption
- twice the value!

This is the most fuel-efficient car ever sold in America. It's rated at 70 mpg on the highway, but gets around 60 mpg when I drive fast. Renters have ranged from 50 mpg to 75 mpg

If you want a 4 door version that's more comfortable, but less sporty, check out the sister car: https://relayrides.com/car-rental/amherst/honda-civic/30893 It's sometimes available in Boston.

GUARANTEED LOWEST PRICE FOR LONG TRIPS
Send me a message if this isn't cheaper than taking your own car, another rental car, or a bus or train. Need to drive somewhere like Upstate New York, Dartmouth or Philly for the weekend? You can make it there and back in one 10 gallon tank. Also, I'd like to charge 8 cents a mile above 200 miles to cover tires and oil, but RelayRides has a 75 cent overage charge. So the car is listed as unlimited and you can just give me a few extra bucks to pay for miles over 200.

CAMBRIDGE PERMIT FOR LOCAL TRIPS
Another bonus is the Cambridge street parking permit, if you need to make local trips. You can leave 7 cents per mile for fuel if you don't want to fill it up.

MANUAL TRANSMISSION
If you don't drive a manual transmission yet, I can give you a lesson.

WHAT OTHER CARS DO YOU WANT?
Please contact me with feedback on how I can improve my car or pricing and what other cars you'd like to see on RelayRides. Do you just want the cheapest car for the day? Does fuel efficiency matter? Want 4 seats? An automatic? A season pass to the beach?

EXTRAS
I just installed nice speakers and an HD radio / CD player with USB/iPhone and aux inputs. You can also request to borrow my Valentine 1 radar detector.

MECHANICAL STATE
I like to keep all my cars in perfect condition with lots of preventive maintenance to maintain their track record of zero breakdowns. Right now, the Insight has a worn second gear synchronizer, so the car won't feel as if it's new. I have a spare transmission ready to go on the car, but the clutch still has a lot of life on it so I want to wait a bit before swapping both.
