The host cancelled this trip last minute. This message was automatically posted by Turo.

Fred's response

This trip was cancelled because the guest booked the trip at 12:00 midnight and expected to pick up car at 3:00 AM. I had no idea the trip was booked because I was asleep. I have adjusted my notice to 6 hours to prevent this in future.

I have seen many reviews on Fred's car and some of them are not fair in my opinion. This is my first time using Turo so I'm a bit of a newbie however this is my honest review of the trip/car. The Prius is an older model therefore not the most attractive vehicle and from the outside and you can see its been used. The fabric on the seats was a run down and some of the plastics were dinged and scratched and could use a bit of a detail. I expected this in a 2008 vehicle. The car did run smoothly though with the exception of some rattling plastics. Fred was very communicative through the app and punctual when I needed to extend my checkout time by a half hour. But my experience wasn't perfect. The thing that through me off and the reason I gave the 4☆ rating was when I entered the vehicle the first thing I see is the steering wheel and dash. I grabbed the steering wheel and it had grease and dirt build up on it and I instantly felt dirty. But I did have some disinfecting wipes and wiped down the steering wheel. But made me feel like I had to wipe down the door handles as well because the steering wheel made multiple disinfecting wipes black. Once I did this it made me feel better about the car. I chose the car for the amazing gas mileage as I knew I would be driving a lot and the car didn't disappoint in that aspect. Would I rent the same car again from Fred? I would say yes if the cleanliness on the car was a bit better. I rented the car for 6days 600+ miles with no issues mechanically Pros: the gas mileage was amazing, communication was clear and warned about Turos crazy late charges and punctual, price is so much better than standard rental companies. Cons: cleanliness and difficult drop-off at Sacramento Airport because a detailed spot was wanted and for someone who hasn't dropped off in lots before it became confusing even for me who is 31 years old Hope this helps clear up some of the bad review concerns and gives people a a reasonable expectation of this car.

This is the most anal and nickel and diming owner I've rented from. On top of that the car is filthy with stains and smells. I absolutely will not rent from him again.

Fred's response

I think your portrayal of me is unfounded and a harsh rebuke. I only asked for gas that you neglected to fill the car after you received it full. I hope other renters understand that your malicious and rude comments says something about you and not your host.
