We rented Mario's MDX for a trip to Lake Tahoe for the Christmas Holiday. We had no problems with the vehicle as it performed very well in the snow and ice. We had a great time visiting with family and enjoyed a beautiful white Christmas. Many thanks to Turo and Mario for making this rental experience smooth and painless.
