    Description:

    Meet Leroy! He is a pleasant car to drive and has an enormous 527 litre boot worthy of a Sir Mixalot tune. Leroy is handsome and well kitted out, with European styling and a number of extras such as a turbo diesel injection engine; AC; leather, heated seats; CD player and sun roof. We keep an USB charger and FM transmitter for mp3 players (use preset for FM 87.5) in the center storage box between the front passenger seats, both can be plugged into the two cigarette lighter plugs. There is a universal smartphone holder attached to the middle driver side air vent. You'll also find hand sanitizer and sunscreen in the glove box, please let us know if you notice those running out before we do. Leroy has a child seat installed and can only seat four adults, and only two of three seats in the back can fold down. PLEASE DON'T MOVE THE CHILD SEAT when borrowing our family car. If you are not familiar with them, child seats take a bit of fiddling to install so they are safe. If you need a car with 5 seats, or that folds down all the back ones, its better you borrow a different vehicle. If you do move the seat, please let us know so that we can be sure its put back in properly

    Description:

    The Prius is a very nice car to drive - quiet and responsive - and the Hybrid engine is great for the planet. There's plenty of boot space, comfortable seats and touch-screen radio and climate console. If you haven't driven a Prius before, remember that the park brake is a foot pedal, and it's a bit different to start and change gears - please take a look at the green instruction sheet inside the car. There is a phone charger with multiple connectors in the middle box, and a hands-free phone holder on the dash. Enjoy the Prius! There are two child seats available. One is usually in the car, but please send me a text message the day before if you need the car seats either in or out of the car. One is a convertible child seat which is suitable for 0-4 yrs. It's a Safe-N-Sound Safeguard and is currently setup as rear-facing. The other is a forward facing child seat suitable for 6 months-8 yrs. It's a Britax Safe-N-Sound Maxi Guard Pro.

    Description:

    My little corolla hatch who I like to refer to fondly as "Blake" is a trusty little guy. He's been a stallion since I purchased him in 2013 from a Toyota dealership on Parramatta Road . He has been serviced every 6 months since I have had him in line with the dealer warranty never been any issues. Sadly he doesn't get driven much since I commute to work in the city everyday and now have a scooter to get around town. So I'm pimping him out so he can meet the friendly locals and get out and see more of Sydney rather than being left alone in the street. There is a Samsung galaxy charger in the car and some old skool cd's which you are welcome to rock out too while you drive. Also a street directory if you like to plot out trips old skool.
