The car perfect and a joy to drive and to use while enjoying Santa Barbara. I look forward to my next trip to SB and will use one of his cars. Thank you Ameer!

Very nice car, will definitely rent again when I'm back in SB. Leather, backup cam, Bluetooth, tinted windows, spotless interior. All in all a great deal for the price. Host was also very nice, helped me with a car charging cable and left a couple bottles of cold water in there when I picked it up.

Great car. Better host. Eric is AWESOME!!! On Sunday evening, my girlfriend and I suddenly needed to rent a car for Monday morning. There were limited options, and most were unwilling to book on such short notice. Despite requesting the car barely 12 hours in advance, Eric had the car freshly cleaned and ready to go. When we picked it up, it was in immaculate condition and even had a bottle of hand sanitizer in the cup-holder. After already having booked this trip last minute, our plans shifted again and we had to change the pickup time of the car. Then, our plans shifted AGAIN, and we had to change the drop-off time. Eric had every right to be annoyed with us, but instead was remarkably kind and accommodating. The car itself is in great condition and runs very well. Leather seats, very roomy, the car has all the bells and whistles, including Bluetooth and a sunroof. It is also surprisingly fuel efficient for its size. Despite being what I would describe as an SUV class vehicle, I drove this car from Santa Barbara to LA and back (apprx 200miles) and spent exactly $20.02 in gas, which is more or less the same as when I take my regular car. I have used Turo a lot over the years. Though I have never encountered a bad host, Eric and his vehicle stand out in my mind as an exceptional; experience. Whether you are lugging around a lot of gear or just dropping your girlfriend off in Los Angeles, or anything in between, I highly recommend Eric and his Toyota Highlander.
