They deserve NO STARS! It was a used car dealership renting its vehicles. I would NOT have rented if I knew it wasn’t a person’s car and will NEVER rent from Celeste again The vehicle was NOT road worthy! PROBLEMS Tires Shocks Front End Transmission Tires All were NOT road worthy and should have been replaced, they would NOT have passed inspection! I had to stop and buy 2 tires because the tires were worn down to the steel belts and could have failed at any time, tires were vibrating so bad I thought they needed to be balanced. The other 2 tires were almost as bad, down to the west bars, when tires need to be replaced, had dry rot and worn out in the middle of the tire, as well as 7 years old! Spare was 13 years old and useless and unsafe! Shocks The front of the truck would bounce 3-4 times after it went over a bump in the road. Front End Would pop when I turned left or right, most likely a bad ball joint or tie rod. Transmission Check engine light cane on so I pulled over and waited several hours to see if transmission was overheating, it wasn’t. I went to a shop and had them run the code, which turned out to be a transmission sensor going bad, which cause the transmission not to shift correctly. Wiiid role out in 1st or high gear, so I had to start in 2nd and couldn’t go faster than 55/60 Going up hills was so slow that the tractor trailers in the slow lane were passing me. Issues These issues put my safety at risk and that is why I’m extremely mad, I could deal with a filthy dirty interior seats. Excuses When I got back, a man who acted like the owner or at least a partner basically accused me of stealing a set of tires, telling me that there was s brand new set of tires in the vehicle. Which I told him NOT when I got the truck, I had the bad tires in the truck bed and they matched the front tires and the spare. Then the story and accusations we’re already Ned at the previous renter. You should NOT rent from these people because these vehicies are NOT personal cars, NOT maintained properly and it’s obviously they care about the $ NOT you safety!

Celeste is a great host, and has a few other cool cars to rent!

The main issue was that the car interior was full of dog hair and other dirt. It appeared that it was used for animal transport and had not been cleaned or vacuumed at all. I informed Celeste and she had me bring the car to her shop where the workers attempted to vacuum as best they could but they said the vehicle needed to be detailed which they were not able to do. Other than this delay in being able to use the vehicle right away there were no other issues. Communication with Celeste was great.

Celeste is a consume pro Turo guest and host. Couldn’t be happier having her as a guest for my brand new 2018 Corvette Grand Sport! Highly recommended.
