Joe’s car was great! It was the perfect vehicle to get around in San Diego from the beaches to the city. Street parking was also a breeze since parking was super simple in this compact car. If you’re visiting San Diego, I highly recommend checking out Joe’s Fiat!
Ben H.- 29 May 2021
This was my 1st rodeo with Turbo and I could not have had a better experience. 1) Joe was AWESOME to communicate with and walk this dummy through all the details of my experience. 2) Sophie was so fun to drive. I was there for pleasure and we had a blast with the convertable 3) couldn't beat the price & convenience! No long airport shuttle lines, no rental car lines & much more cost effective than traditional rental car companies.

Everything about this rental was fantastic! Evan was excellent in providing directions & quickly responding to questions during the rental. Car was in excellent condition & we had no problems enjoying all the Tesla has to offer. Definitely give this a try if you're looking for a Tesla rental in the San Diego area!

Amazing Tesla. Took my family out for a cruise around San Diego for the day to try it out before we possibly buy. It was great. Performed well. Very clean. Mechanically flawless. Benita had great communication thru out our whole trip. Anyone needing to try a tesla I recommend her.

Chad was the best! Made our trip extremely easy. I have rented cars on Turo a couple different times and this was by far the best experience. His Tesla Model X is gorgeous and drives incredible. I will definitely be renting another one of Chads Tesla’s next time I come to San Diego. Chad thank you!

Carlos and the vehicle were awesome! Carlos was very accommodating and provided us with a thorough walkthrough of the vehicle, including linking our phone to the car for music and GPS and he even added us to the Tesla app so we didn’t need to use the standard Tesla key. Would absolutely recommend booking through Carlos when you’re in San Diego!

Hiring the Pacific Ride Tesla Model Y was an absolute blast! I rented the car for the day because I am considering getting one. I wanted to experience what ownership would be like since test drives don't give you a real sense. An amazing car and an incredible piece of technology. Evan was great and responsive at fielding questions when I had them. He has clearly done this before. :) Would highly recommend Pacific Ride if you're looking to get behind the wheel of a Tesla in the San Diego area.

This has been the best experience I’ve ever had renting a car. Jaron should have a fleet of these things. I was very impressed with the entire experience. The car was clean, it was juiced up, he helped me with learning and teaching me how to drive the car! Best of all he was super accommodating! I wish they had 10 stars to give. Highly recommend book Jaron for all your Tesla driving needs in San Diego!

I was genuinely nervous about using Turo’s service. However, Ali made the experience absolutely unbelievable. The car was phenomenal, Ali was amazingly professional and willing to help anyway possible. He delivered the car to my hotel and picked it up. He spent time explaining features of the car and setting everything up. Whenever I return to San Diego I will be renting again from Ali. The future of rental car companies is seriously in jeopardy.

Overall, fantastic rental. Clean, tidy and well maintained. Directions were clear. Pickup had some hassle with Sheraton not willing to let me use the shuttle without a reservation. Just walked to the parking lot instead of paying for the Lyft. It was a short 10-15 minute walk, even with luggage in hand. Would recommend Jesus or anything other of his cars if visiting San Diego again.

Levi was an awesome host. Couldn't have asked for a better host. He's very quick to respond and was accommodating with any issues we had. Pick up and drop off was a breeze. Levi taught us the basics about the car and let us learn the car on our own. The car was super clean when picked up. Our only downside was our own fault. We should've asked for access to the Tesla app so we didn't need the key to turn the car on. I lost the car key and we had to catch an Uber from Temecula to San Diego and back to get a spare key. We paid him for the lost key. Just make sure to give him your email and ask for access to the Tesla app. You create a log in so you don't need his login info. The car itself was one of our favorite things about this vacation. We've never drove a Tesla before. Letting it take control in traffic was an amazing experience. All the other extra's that Tesla's have were an pleasing added bonus. After renting this for a week, we really want to buy a Tesla lol

Let me tell you about this ALL STAR HOST named Eric. He should be the poster child of the Turo experience! He communicated efficiently before, during, and even after my wonder trip in his Candy Red Model X cruising the San Diego streets in style. Our Trip started with a wonderful pick up from the airport where Eric was waiting with the Candy Red Wings extended in the air awaiting our arrival! This All Star Host grabbed our bags and loaded them all into the car and we we off! Before Eric left us with his precious piece of technology, he gave us a run down on how to operate it since this was our first experience with a Telsa baby! Eric you rock my brother and you are my go to whenever I'm in San Diego. Thank you and may your family continue to thrive in prosperity!

I love how the inside is white and the red break pads were my favorite. Best experience ever! Thank you again Brandon for everything it was a fun experience and I love your car!! If anyone is looking to ride around in a nice Tesla this one is it. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed cruising around in this beautiful Tesla ☺️

Renting Abraham's Model Y was an absolute pleasure. His car is as advertised, in great condition and with no issues. Abraham was accommodating, took time to explain things, and is a great host. My wife and I are planning to buy this exact car and had a road trip planned, so figured why not rent it and try it out, with the full experience of having to utilize the Supercharger network. We are now set on purchasing this car. Thank you Abraham!!!!!

Such a great experience!! This was our first time using Turo and we were very happy! It was pretty cool to just walk up to the vehicle and by using the Turo App, we were able to unlock the car and get in and go! It was also our first time driving a Tesla, and we were sold immediately. Such an awesome car and the no-lag, is 😬.. we love-loved it. Juan was Even able to help us extend our trip (a couple of times). Overall awesome experience, and Juan thank you so much for being such an understanding, accommodating and helpful Host!!! Much appreciated.
