A totally professional car rental agency. Great communication and convenience. First rate auto for a very reasonable price. Start here when looking for a cool ride in LA!

Great car to cruise around LA! Very comfortable for long rides as well ! Sweet loving sound of the grumbling 5.0 V8! Would definitely recommend renting with Jackie !

Raul was a pleasure to work with. I was lucky I found him and his vehicle. My primary car was in the shop and we didn’t know what was wrong. I was told it could be up to a week that I wouldn’t have it. It was resolved in three hours I reached out to Raul explained that the problem was not as serious as earlier thought and how could I adjust the trip. He was simply amazing we met within an hour and everything was taken care of. His flexibility and professionalism are hard to find in this day and age. I will use Raul in the future if I need a car.

There’s nothing better than a convertible at the beach and Behzad’s Mustang certainly fit the bill. The level of communication between us was great and the convenience in pick up, and drop off, worked very well given where I was staying. I would both, rent from Behzad again and recommend him and his car. Thanks Behzad.

Wow this M3 CS is something else. I’ve driven the M3’s but this CS is on another level. Extremely well balanced, quick, great power delivery with a predictable torque curve. Definitely an awesome car. Shy was a great host who helped accommodate my short term rental and met me up without delay. Extremely professional and looking forward to renting from him again. Might I add Shy’s cars are always in new condition, always a pleasure
