Tesla Model 3 2019

I've never used Turo before so I was a bit nervous, but Casey is a great communicater which made the rental process seamless. He really took his time during the drop off to teach us about the Tesla and answer any questions we had. The Model 3 was so fun to drive! Casey also responded quickly to our texts and we were able to extend our rental return by a day without a hassle. This was the best experience I've ever had with renting a car. Thank you, Casey!

Porsche Panamera 2011

Brett is great, he’s a car guy and takes pride in his Porsche. He was super responsive with communication and pickup/drop-off was a breeze. He walked me through the features of his Panamera in detail before I hit the road. I enjoyed talking cars with him as well. All in all, one of my best Turo experiences. The car itself is in excellent condition, it looks almost new. Probably the cleanest car I’ve rented on Turo. And it drives excellent; smooth, powerful and has incredible handling. If you’re looking for a cool high performance 4-door you really can’t do better than his Panamera, it’s a great value for the money. I would rent from Brett again in a second.

Tesla Model 3 2019

Casey was an excellent host and the car was absolutely wonderful. Autopilot was a lifesaver (literally, when a coyote decided to run out in front of us) and the car was incredibly clean upon arrival (with 95% charge too). Casey was also quick to answer any and all questions I had about the vehicle or his preferences for how I should treat it throughout the trip. I even had to extend the length of my trip after miscalculating how long it would take to drive back, and he was comfortable with this. 10/10

Toyota Prius 2008

My first experience with this app-centric service. Well thought out in every way. I met Aleksey when picking up the car. Written instructions were easy to follow and, having had a Prius for a few years, no learning curve on its operation. Only 2 miles from my residence, I hope to do business with him and the Prius soon. He was a pleasure and so helpful guiding me through the pre-pickup steps. Thanks so much. Truly a fan of this app and its ease of operation vs. standard car rental agency (not that it's hard, but I like this better). Marti

Fantastic customer service and dealing with the host is absolutely amazing. The car was clean and in good condition, great work professionally done, always on time and with the best quote!

Driving this car is a different type of experience when compared to a regular one, other drivers are in general extra-careful and polite. Many people smile and wave at you when they see you driving by. I used it for a daily commute to work and for a couple of road trips, didn't have any problems. Aleksey was easy to communicate with and I highly recommend doing business with him.

David’s E400 was awesome! I had the car for five days and had some absolutely amazing convertible mornings and evenings in Yosemite. The heater fans in the headrest work amazing when it gets chilly. The Burmester sound system (a $5,400 option when new) was one of the best audio experiences I’ve had. It blew me away. David was super easy to work with and ultra-COVID conscientious. Driving this car made the trip so much better.

My husband and I along with our 8 month old daughter rented the Tesla model 3 for a weekend tie explore San Fran and the Yosemite area. Aleksey was very easy to communicate with prior to and throughout the rental! Pickup and drop off were a breeze with the digital key! We ended up dropping the car off a little late due to long lines at the charging station and Aleksey was very understanding and accommodating! The car is almost brand new and it was extremely clean! We thoroughly enjoyed our rental experience and would gladly rent from Aleksey again in the future!

Awesome two week trip with Wade’s Tesla! Wade was super helpful and even picked us up from the airport when we arrived. The car is simply phenomenal... We drove (mostly on autopilot) from SF Area, down to Santa Barbara, back up to Napa/Sonoma and finished in Lake Tahoe. The car never hit a glitch with the auto pilot and felt so smooth and reliable even on the windy turns. It was especially convenient to be able to check out the amazing California scenery while in the drivers seat! Not to mention the performance Tesla model which feels like a rocket ship when you feel like doing a little manual control. I’m obsessed. Thanks Wade!

First off , a host that fills the tank up for pick up is awesome ! It’s always annoying to have to Stop at the gas station immediately after renting so that’s at least 3 stars for him alone ! Also - the car was spotless outside and in when I picked it up ! The host is super sweet ! Came out and met me - spoke about the cool features in the car which included buttons for the gear shift - so cool ! The car is super nice and fun to drive ! I would definitely recommend this vehicle for anyone looking to rent ! - gas mileage was unmatched too ! Only about 30-35 bucks for fill up !
