About the car

Note: 8 cents per mile surcharge above 200 mi / day.

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 is getting 58 - 64 this summer (2015) when I drive it. Renters have ranged from 46 mpg to 74 mpg.

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 charge 8 cents a mile above 200 miles to cover tires and oil, but RelayRides applies a 75 cent overage charge. The car is listed as unlimited, but you can just give me a few extra bucks to pay for miles over 200 per day.

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 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 preventive maintenance to maintain their reliability. 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 am waiting for the clutch to wear out before swapping both.
