About the car

Heads up! The AC doesn't always work, and I'm not sure that I'll fix it anytime soon as it doesn't impact me much - there is a sunroof and last summer was decently cool.

Great gas mileage (~35-45 mpg highway) in this diesel Golf hatchback. Car has a sunroof, CD, cassette deck (with headphone tape adapter), and a USB charger (don't leave it plugged in when you aren't in the car in case if it drains the battery!). Seating for two is most comfortable - there are no headrests on the rear seats. Plenty of space in the back for groceries or other day to day items. A bike can fit inside with the rear seats down. The fan only works on high :(

Please no smoking and no pets that aren't in a carrier, only use diesel fuel, and be kind to Rolfe. The car will be parked near the address (street parking). There is no I-Pass in this car.

Typically, the car can be picked up/dropped off before 7am or after 6pm on weekdays (it can be used during the day - I bike), and any time on the weekends.

Frequently Asked Questions (Answered by Rolfe)

What kind of gas mileage do you get? "Between 35 and 45 mpg, depending on the terrain and speed. I'll last for 500+ miles on a full tank!"

What kind of fuel do you use? "I drink diesel. Yum."

How many passengers can you drive around? "While I can seat four, two would be most comfortable!"

Can I hook up my iPhone? "Yeah! Through the cassette adapter (old school!). You can even use the USB adapter to charge your phone (though I don't have a cable, just a USB outlet)."

Whats new, Rolfe? "I just got new brake pads, rotors, and tires!"


Typically, I am available to start rentals before 7:15am on weekdays, after 6pm on weekdays, and most times on weekends. If you have questions, please ask!
