Chris was both communicative and helpful throughout the rental process! Easy pick up and drop off at San Diego Airport. Car was clean and had no issues while driving.

This car is a beast! So fuel efficient for me to travel around Southern California. The seats were comfortable and I felt very safe driving around in this car. Pickup and drop off was super East through the app. Thank you Christopher! I couldn’t have enjoyed my trip without you!

The car was so fun and the owner was the most responsive ever. So easy and so much better than the big rental companies!

Renting Joe's Fiat was a great experience. The car is in great shape and lots of fun. While all our friends were in boring grey rental boxes we were cruising with the wind in our hair. Pickup and dropoff were leagues better than the rental counter, as Joe notes. This process was Just. So. Easy. Highly recommend!

Great car, great host! We thoroughly enjoyed driving Juan's Model Y. Juan was a great host. Very friendly, communicated quickly, and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend anyone wanting to drive a Tesla, to get it from Juan. It was our first experience renting through Turo and first time to drive a Tesla. We took a short vacation in San Diego and decided to make it more fun by driving a Model Y. Could not have been more fun. Thank you Turo and Juan for making our trip to San Diego a lot of fun!!!

Everything about this rental was fantastic! Evan was excellent in providing directions & quickly responding to questions during the rental. Car was in excellent condition & we had no problems enjoying all the Tesla has to offer. Definitely give this a try if you're looking for a Tesla rental in the San Diego area!

Amazing Tesla. Took my family out for a cruise around San Diego for the day to try it out before we possibly buy. It was great. Performed well. Very clean. Mechanically flawless. Benita had great communication thru out our whole trip. Anyone needing to try a tesla I recommend her.

Ali was great to work with. He picked me up curbside when my flight landed, spent time going through the features and settings on the Tesla, and he met me curbside at the airport for a quick and easy turn in... highly recommend and will be a repeat customer next time I'm back in San Diego!

Benita is the best host I've ever rented from! She was so friendly and made the whole renting process very easy. Thank you so much. Beautiful car just as described in the listing. Felt like I drove a new car off the lot! Loved having a Tesla and never needing to go to the gas station. We just plugged it in at our rental each night using the provided charger. I can't wait to rent from Benita again on our next trip back to San Diego.

I will definitely be renting another one of Chads Tesla’s next time I come to San Diego. Chad thank you!

Carlos and the vehicle were awesome! Carlos was very accommodating and provided us with a thorough walkthrough of the vehicle, including linking our phone to the car for music and GPS and he even added us to the Tesla app so we didn’t need to use the standard Tesla key. Would absolutely recommend booking through Carlos when you’re in San Diego!

Hiring the Pacific Ride Tesla Model Y was an absolute blast! I rented the car for the day because I am considering getting one. I wanted to experience what ownership would be like since test drives don't give you a real sense. An amazing car and an incredible piece of technology. Evan was great and responsive at fielding questions when I had them. He has clearly done this before. :) Would highly recommend Pacific Ride if you're looking to get behind the wheel of a Tesla in the San Diego area.

It was a great ride and learning experience. Got us around San Diego with no problem and best part was not paying for gas. But just remember the charging takes time but you can do other things while it charges just be mindful of your charge time. I highly recommend Glennford.

I was genuinely nervous about using Turo’s service. However, Ali made the experience absolutely unbelievable. The car was phenomenal, Ali was amazingly professional and willing to help anyway possible. He delivered the car to my hotel and picked it up. He spent time explaining features of the car and setting everything up. Whenever I return to San Diego I will be renting again from Ali. The future of rental car companies is seriously in jeopardy.

Overall, fantastic rental. Clean, tidy and well maintained. Directions were clear. Pickup had some hassle with Sheraton not willing to let me use the shuttle without a reservation. Just walked to the parking lot instead of paying for the Lyft. It was a short 10-15 minute walk, even with luggage in hand. Would recommend Jesus or anything other of his cars if visiting San Diego again.

Tesla Model Y 2021

Levi was an awesome host. Couldn't have asked for a better host. He's very quick to respond and was accommodating with any issues we had. Pick up and drop off was a breeze. Levi taught us the basics about the car and let us learn the car on our own. The car was super clean when picked up. Our only downside was our own fault. We should've asked for access to the Tesla app so we didn't need the key to turn the car on. I lost the car key and we had to catch an Uber from Temecula to San Diego and back to get a spare key. We paid him for the lost key. Just make sure to give him your email and ask for access to the Tesla app. You create a log in so you don't need his login info. The car itself was one of our favorite things about this vacation. We've never drove a Tesla before. Letting it take control in traffic was an amazing experience. All the other extra's that Tesla's have were an pleasing added bonus. After renting this for a week, we really want to buy a Tesla lol

Naveed you are literally the perfect host! From pick up to drop off, that was extremely easy & seamless. This car looks brand new, maybe that had to do with the 130 miles on the odometer when I picked it up. 😃 The upgraded full self driving was insane! Definitely better then that standard auto pilot that comes standard with all Teslas. I will definitely rent again soon! Thank you Naveed
