It's a really well maintained car (fully serviced) that is zippy enough to navigate some of the narrower streets of Melbourne and easy to parallel park. With four doors it's big enough to transport friends and family and fit your shopping in too. It's red so it goes faster...but please stick to the speed limits ;)

2013 Ford Fiesta

McCracken Ave, Northcote VIC

Owner: Benjamin

Transmission: Manual

Hourly Rate: $6.00

Daily Rate: $30.00

Rate per km: $0.33 (includes fuel)

Features: Folding Rear Seat, Pet Friendly, GPS, Air Conditioning, AUX Input

Description:

Fiona (my Ford Fiesta) is an economical, comfortable, and clean way to get around the city or away on your next adventure to some of the beautiful countryside around Melbourne! The car is very space efficient, meaning it is great for short trips in and around the city for shopping or visiting friends. Alternatively, the back easily has the space to store bags for a weekend away. My favourite spots are Phillip Island, Wilsons Promontary and Lerderderg National Park. The car is new, bought in 2013, and has been serviced regularly, meaning the chance of any mechanical issues while you’re borrowing are incredibly low. I’ve never had any issues myself. I joined car next door because I bought a van that I am driving around Australia. Rather than have my car sit idle, I prefer to share it with others. That way what already exists can get used rather than the need for more cars to be bought. Please feel free to leave a review after you have borrowed Fiona or contact me directly through the app :) Thanks, Ben
