Polaris Slingshot Review
on Things to Know When Driving
You must know how to drive manual transmission proficiently. All Polaris slingshots are manual transmissions, although we will have automatic transmissions by the summer 2016 we do not have any yet.
Yes, you have guessed it, the Polaris Slingshot comes with quite a bit of horsepower under that hood. Make sure you are VERY careful making fast turns, the tail of the beast will slide out on you and easily make you loose control, although highly fun to drive, that single tire on the back brings a lot of potential risk with it.
Just Enjoy it. Relax. and be responsible with it. Remember more people stare while you drive slow.
Insert key and turn forward to on position and then simultaneously press down clutch and brake pedals. The vehicle will take about 5 seconds to boot-up and will show on the dashboard. Once booted up, in the center dash below radio you will find a red start button. Push down button for several seconds until the engine starts.
• Adjust side mirrors to minimize blind spots and optimize your vision.
At the time of parking, the slingshot MAKE SURE TO ALWAYS USE EMERGENCY BRAKE. Place in first gear for added safety.
You must first turn on your bluetooth on your cell phone or electronic device. Afterwards hold and press the mode button on the slingshot radio. Afterwards, cycle through by pressing mode until getting to “driver device”. Now press preset and follow the directions prompted on the screen. after accepting code and access on your phone. The bluetooth will be completely set up.
Anyways with our superior service we make sure the slingshot team leaves your phone set up if desired when we arrive to leave you the slingshot rental.
There are three compartments for storage. Two located behind both seats (where DOT helmets fit and can be placed) opened with the engine key for extra security.
Also, there is a glove compartment located on the passenger side, where you will find registration and USB port. This compartment will also open and lock with engine key.
The engine requires 91 Octane fuel or better when re-fueling slingshot. If not slingshot will shut off and engine will acquire serious damage. To fuel, remove gas cap that is located on the rear left of the vehicle and pump gas slowly as it will not stop pumping once it is full.
In a case that you run out of gasoline, we will go out and refuel you for a $100 charge. Subsequently, if returned at a lower fuel level then when picked up, unless stated on a promotion a $40 fuel fee will be charged.
A $250 dollar fee will be charged for a lost fob plus a $100 rescue fee to take you a replacement to your location.
Turn signal engages by pressing down or up, but will stay on until you bring it back to center.
The Polaris Slingshot is a street legal vehicle, it is NOT an off-road vehicle. Keep the slingshot on paved street roads, if taken off-road and get it stuck there will be a $300 fee for rescue to get slingshot unstuck and towed if this were to occur it is possible deposit will be lost due to damages.
Any Speeding, red camera, tolls, and parking tickets are the responsibility of renter, in case that any of these occur and notice arrives past the return of the slingshot you are authorizing to charge to the credit card on file the fees.
