The convertible was a great one! And it will definitely get all eyes on you :) The car was great for the curvy, uphill and downhill roads of PCH. However, the interior requires some additional care. It was a tad bit unclean (from the previous renter I believe) and some parts of the armrest were falling apart. The driving experience was great overall but the cleanliness was lacking a little.
The reason I tried Turo was to get a convertible in CA at a reasonable price for 5 days (the major car rental companies were no less than $700 for 5 days) and I saw bad reviews and long pick up times for Advantage Rental and some other off airport companies. Well this TURO listing misleadingly said they provide an Uber pick up (which they no longer do). The owner had sent me other information related to "RelayRides" but none of the numbers he sent me worked. Finally, when I got a number that worked it ended up being the standard shuttle from Custom Hotel which took over an hour to come. To make things worse - the car was dirty inside at pick (had food crumbs all over the back seat. I was texting the owner and yes he was "responsive" but the standard answer was that pick up and "light vacuuming" were Turo's responsibility so that wasn't his fault. Lastly, I should have thought about this before renting a 2008 car, but the breaks vibrated a little when breaking at high speeds. If Turo can't even take car of the "light vacuuming" I doubt they are keeping an eye on the maintenance issues with the car.
Excellent car, mechanically and interior EXCELLENT CONDITION Fady the host was timely with communication. I will defiantly be renting his vehicle the next time in town! Loved the pano roof and gas mileage was superb

Fady was very communicative and helpful. The car was in great condition when we picked it up. We had a couple of comments about the car'shudders transmission and Fady was very responsive and will certainly address any of the issues we noticed. For the price and flexibility, this car was a great deal.
Great car! Fadi was very responsive, highly recommend. Turo needs to get the pick-up and delivery worked out at LAX. If you are not there when the shuttle is at the airport it's a 45 minute to 1 hour wait. This has no reflection on Fadi.
The smartcar was a lot of fun! We loved the convertible feature, which was utilized every day/night when cruising around LA! Sometimes the alarm/unlock buttons on the keychain would be temperamental but overall it was an awesome experience! I'd definitely rent from Fady again. Thank you, Fady!
I took the car from LA to Palm Springs for the weekend with my girlfriend. She liked the car a lot and thought it was super fun and cute, she couldn't stop smiling. It was my first time in a Smart Car. It's such a fun car and the buttons to open the roof were so easy that we'd have the top down as much as possible. I'd definitely recommend it and Fady was very nice and accommodating. He always responded immediately if we needed anything.
Fady's Smart is almost as wonderful and accommodating as he is! I will rent from him every future trip to LA. You cannot go wrong with this Simple and convenient car and supreme customer service. 1,000 thumbs up!
As my first experience with Turo, it was perfect. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed the car which was in perfect condition and worked like a charm. Fady was really helpful as well and did everything to make our trip easy and comfortable. A really big thank you! I won't hesitate to renew the experience for a next trip in the States.
I rented this car for the weekend because my dad who is close to his 70's wishes to have one of his own. So much that he bought a toy one to pretend he owns a smart car. Lol ...So I got it for 2 days so he could get the actual experience of driving one. Thaanks Fady for making hassle free to rent this car... I definitely recommend your service easy and affordable to rent a car from you.
The car was great. This is a FUN car to get around town in. Easy to fit in small parking situations. Great on gas. And Fady is the best. He responds right away if there are any concerns or questions. Thanks Fady
Had the most amazing time! And would recommend this car and over to everyone and anyone. He was so kind and worked with me. I can't explain how appreciative I am! This will be my go to every time I come back!!!!
Last minute weekend trip from Hawaii to California to attend a funeral. Made reservations two days prior to my arrival and Fady responded to my request in a timely and professional manner. The car was a BEAST! Mahalo Fady..hope you enjoyed your box of Chocolate Macadamia Nuts.
Fady was very prompt and very helpful in every aspect. Made my first Turo experience very positive. He even advised a toll route on my way to SD which ended up saving me a lot of time and mileage. The X5 is great and very well managed. Would definitely recommend Fady and his X5 to anyone.
Excellent experience all around! The car was great, especially with the top down! It was a fun car to explore southern california in and Fady made the experience extremely stress-free and fun (: Recommend this to everyone!
A++ service from Fady, he's very easy to work with and made sure I felt comfortable before taking his convertible out for a spin. I had a great time driving this beauty around, and I truly enjoyed meeting Fady. Thank you, Fady!
The car was in tip-top condition. I had a smooth and enjoyable drive. The car looks awesome with its hard top down. Gps included is also very user friendly and hassle free. Fady is an awesome and friendly guy who make sure his cars are in their best condition before passing it to you. Received the car on time and returned it with ease. Overall, superb service! Will definitely get back to fady for future car rentals.
