Faqs

  • What happens if the Tesla runs out of battery?

    Running out of battery almost always results in damaging the 12v battery in the car ($200 replacement if damaged). If you run out of battery, the car may not turn back on, even if you plug it into a charger (due to the 12v battery being damaged). The best practice is if you think you won’t make it to your charging destination it is better to pull off the road safely and leave at least ~5% battery remaining. You’ll want AC while you wait for the tow truck to arrive and tow you to the nearest charging station. Running out of battery will also require the Tesla to be jumped. Very few tow trucks have the hardware needed to jump a Tesla. If the tow truck does not have the hardware to jump a Tesla, you’ll need to have the Tesla towed to the nearest Tesla Service Center. Turo 24/7 roadside assistance 1-415-965-4525 https://help.turo.com/roadside-assistance-for-guests-or-us-and-canada-BJBiEVgE9

  • How can I make sure I don’t run out of battery?

    Use the on screen Tesla navigation to direct you to your destination. The Tesla will automatically (in live time) tell you how much battery you’ll have when you get to your destination. The navigation will also update (in live time) the estimated location arrival battery percentage based on your driving (how fast your going, how much AC your using, etc..). If you are running low on battery, the Tesla will give you recommendations to lessen battery consumption so you can make it to your destination.

  • Where can I charge the Tesla?

    Tesla Supercharger - fee varies & will show on touchscreen. ** Tips for Supercharging ** #1 to find the fastest Supercharger, filter by three bolts⚡️in navigation #2 navigate to the Supercharger. The battery will precondition for faster charging #3 arrive with 20% battery or less to maximize charge rate #4 leave space between cars. Neighboring stalls may share power #5 move the car after charging. Idle fees may apply

  • How long does it take to recharge the Tesla?

    Tesla Supercharger: 200-250 miles of range per hour.

  • How many miles can I get on a single charge?

    This 2018 Tesla Model 3 has an ideal range of 264 miles. Most drivers get about 190-240 miles when you account for AC usage, highway speed driving, accelerating quickly, headwind(s), & driving uphill.

  • How does the free carwash work?

    When you arrive at The Wash Tub car wash, let the attendant know the car owner has a monthly membership. They’ll clean the interior and exterior of the car (you don’t have to lift a finger! 😎). NOTE: if there are specific areas/spills (life happens) that need attention, let the attendee know. Depending on the issue, they’ll do their best to clean it.

  • How do I lock/unlock/start/turn off the car?

    You’ll use the black key card to lock and unlock the car by tapping the key card underneath the camera on the exterior driver door pillar. To start the car, tap the key card behind the center console cup holder. To “turn off” the car, just lock the doors. Here’s a short Tesla made video that shows you what I’ve described. https://youtu.be/7xxCgtXEMVY Note: If you purchased the “Toys & Games” extra, you’ll have FULL TESLA APP access, which includes ability to remotely: Lock/Unlock, start A/C or heater, see car’s location, honk horn/flash lights, Toys & Games from Tesla: watch Netflix, Disney+, or Hulu, other fun arcade games. In case your phone dies, keep the black key card with you as a backup.

  • How do I reboot the Tesla’s computer?

    If your experiencing an issue with the car, try rebooting the computer. This fixes most issues right away. With the tesla in Park, reboot the Tesla by holding both scroll wheels on the steering wheel until you see the touch screen turn off. It’ll take 1-2 minutes for the touch screen to fully reboot.

  • Will the car be disinfected?

    Yes. The car will be disinfected, as per Turo’s guidelines, before every trip.

  • Do I have to pay for parking at the airport?

    Yes, I will leave the parking ticket for you. When you return the vehicle for drop off, please leave the parking ticket for me as well so I can pay. Thanks!

  • Can I pick up at 2am?

    Definitely! With the key card in a lockbox on the driver’s side view mirror, you can pick up the car whenever it’s most convenient for you.

  • Is there a grace period for returning the vehicle?

    Yes, there’s a 30 min grace period. If you’re going to be more than 30 mins late, please contact me as soon as possible. I’m willing to work with you. You can request an extension through Turo. The length of the extension depends on the vehicle’s availability https://help.turo.com/en_us/extending-or-shortening-your-trip-BypBE4eVc The following charges may apply for additional usage: 0-29 minutes late: No charge 30 minutes to 1 hour 59 minutes late: ½ the average daily trip price; $50* improper return fee at Turo’s discretion** 2 hours or more late: Average daily trip price for 1 day + $20* late return fee; $50* improper return fee at Turo’s discretion**

  • How do I close the “Frunk” (Front Trunk”)?

    The Frunk needs to be closed using both hands on either side of the Tesla emblem. Attempting to close in any other way will cause damage to the hood. Check out the video below for more info. How to properly close the Frunk (Front Trunk) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4t8shMNLe4

The Tesla is definitely worth renting from Sam. In Austin there is such an abundance of Tesla drivers it feels almost natural to use the vehicle and Tesla super chargers are scattered throughout town. The vehicle was clean, a stylish black color with l chrome trim and tinted windows which is a must have in this Texas heat. My only issue with the vehicle is that the AC has a smell when you turn it on for the first time, but this is easily fixable if the filters are replaced on the vehicle. I recall there was a undisclosed defect with these vehicles that allows moisture to enter the passenger side air filter. The last thing is the lack of charger adapters. It may not be a big deal to some, but at my hotel there was a 3rd party charger which required an adapter as well as a actual Tesla charging station if you bring your own cable. It would have saved me a tremendous amount of time wasted charging in the mornings or late at night. Overall the vehicle is a great choice, but you just need to be mindful and stick to using the provided navigation as much as possible.

  • How do I reboot the Tesla’s computer?

    If your experiencing an issue with the car, try rebooting the computer. This fixes most issues right away.

    Definitely! With the key card in a lockbox on the driver’s side view mirror, you can pick up the car whenever it’s most convenient for you.

The Tesla is definitely worth renting from Sam. In Austin there is such an abundance of Tesla drivers it feels almost natural to use the vehicle and Tesla super chargers are scattered throughout town. The vehicle was clean, a stylish black color with l chrome trim and tinted windows which is a must have in this Texas heat. My only issue with the vehicle is that the AC has a smell when you turn it on for the first time, but this is easily fixable if the filters are replaced on the vehicle. I recall there was a undisclosed defect with these vehicles that allows moisture to enter the passenger side air filter. The last thing is the lack of charger adapters. It may not be a big deal to some, but at my hotel there was a 3rd party charger which required an adapter as well as a actual Tesla charging station if you bring your own cable. It would have saved me a tremendous amount of time wasted charging in the mornings or late at night. Overall the vehicle is a great choice, but you just need to be mindful and stick to using the provided navigation as much as possible.
