As a first time user, I didn’t really know what to expect. A friend of mine had used the Turo app last year in California, and had a good experience. My only advice to anyone else that wants to use it is to make sure the owner of the vehicle has more than ten great reviews. I took the first store away because the vehicle was dirty, and was very “lived in”. It was instantly obvious this was their daily driver. The owner removed his baby seat out of the car in front of me. Not that it’s a problem, since it is their car. But why wouldn’t you remove that at home? I just thought it was odd. The interior was heavily laden with drink spills, stains, dirt and other random items, Such as a mail key, card key, and a USB iPhone cord still plugged into the car and draped across the center console. The interior smelled like cigarettes and body odor. There was also a box with an inflatable air mattress in the trunk, along with a pair of ladies heels. The second star was removed because the brakes were shot, and a few times I felt it was a bit unsafe. (The steering wheel shook violently when you came to a heavy breaking stop). If it were my car and I was renting it out to people, I would never present it to anyone in this kind of shape or condition. The owner was 15 minutes late to the drop off at the end of the rental, but he was very friendly. After I picked up the car, I immediately thought I should’ve went with another vehicle. This review was written with the best intentions.

Thank you for your feedback Ian. I would first like to address the time, I was not late dropping off the car, please refer to our messages to see we met on time. Secondly, it’s odd that you should say that the breaks were shot when I have receipt from the dealership that they were replaced two days before your trip. You also let me know that you took the air fresher out and placed in the trunk because it was making you sneeze. Feel free to rent with me again so I can chance your view. Thank you
