The problem with it is that people have a "romantic" type attachment to there cars.
In today's world most people use their car to get to work from way out in the burbs.
My point to this is that the modern city is stretched out way to far for programs like this to be effective.
I believe that there was a similar program done in either Seattle or Portland with bikes. I believe that it was not a very big success at all.
The direct answer to you question is that, yes I would try it but I would not get attached because it will not last long.

Who's responsible for the car if you wreck it? Do you as a user still need to maintain auto insurance of some type?
car sharing is totally an urban-niche thing, wouldn't work at all in the suburbs or a sprawling, car-oriented city like Los Angeles or Atlanta. only in those places where there's a critical mass of middle and upper-income people who don't normally drive would this work. this is pretty much limited to the following U.S. cities: Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Portland, San Francisco.
