Nice car! Was just right for zipping around town. Small enough to park everywhere but there was room for our luggage. Reliable so I didn’t ever worry that I was going to get where I needed to be. Easy pick up and drop off. Great communication with owner. Will definitely rent from them again if I’m ever back in Des Moines.

This was our very first time using Turo. All I have to say is renting from Puja was such a great experience! I would rent from him again and be using Turo in the future. To give a little back story, my young family and I flew into Des Moines at midnight and all the car rental places close around 11:30 P.M.. The location where the car was required us to call to get a shuttle due to after hours. I called the shuttle when we landed and they were in route. Puja had called and had the shuttle service looking for us already. This is just outstanding, how they out of their way for us. They we’re very responsive to all of my question and concerns that I had. We will definitely be renting from them on future trips to Des Moines.

Absolutely flawless experience, and Puja was completely accommodating for my first time Turo experience. I also was able to extend the trip through puja with no extra charge because I didn’t know when our flight would be taking off. A great experience and a great car, I recommend everyone if your visiting to rent through Puja!

Just wrapped up a short trip in DM. We rented the Mercedes GLA-class from PUja. I had so much fun driving this car! Rented it for the same price as a Dodge from Thrifty! The only drawback was that it’s a little small for a family of 4. We made it work but we had to improvise a bit. I would rent this car again from PUja in a heartbeat!

The car was perfect for our family of three for a long weekend visiting family in Iowa. Puja was incredible host and sent us a lot of valuable information before the trip, such as tips on driving the car & restaurant recommendations. Communication was excellent & easy. The parking location was so convenient from the airport for pick up. The car was clean and came with free car washes, which was great after the rain. I’m never renting with regular rental car company and using turo! This was our first turo experience and will definitely want to use again on our next Iowa trip!

The car itself was great! Very modern; bluetooth connection for radio, backup camera, alerts for cars in the blind spots, etc. The car was also very clean. Spacious, the back seat can put 3 people comfortably. There are also car seat anchors for the young ones. A spacious hatchback/trunk area fits 2 full size suitcases with room to spare. Puja and Dil were also excellent hosts. Very informative and kind. I fully recommend you rent their "Mini Hulk".

I originally rented a vehicle through Hertz for a business trip, but after a major error on Hertz side. I was left with no vehicle, was told "I guess that sucks for you", and overall a very rude attitude from the woman at the counter. So I when I discovered Turo and found this vehicle Stacy had. It was a huge relief to be able to work with a direct person. Who not only helped work things out when things seemed they wouldn't, but provided a vehicle early the next morning ready to go. Thank you Stacy for everything, it drove amazingly, and if you are ever in the area. I highly recommend renting the Acadia from Stacy! Thanks again!!!
