I've rented from David time and again, and I always have a great experience. He leaves clear instructions, the car is always clean, and from the few times we've met he is very friendly and helpful. I recommend!
An affordable car with a responsive and friendly owner! This car has a few quirks to it, but nothing was unexpected - David had a VERY useful one-pager overview about things to know and expect so I felt very comfortable with it.
Also, David keeps an emergency kit in the trunk. Very helpful.
David is extremely nice and honest. Its a good simple car to rent, meaning no bells and whistles. It got me where I was going with no problems. He even leaves his phone charger, which is very helpful, and an emergency kit in the trunk. Plenty of room and very clean interiors.
David was great and even washed the car prior to me picking up the car. He has specific information printed for you (about pickup/dropoff, use of FastTrak, etc...) Overall a great first Turo experience and I will definitely use David's car again in the future if I need it!
An awesome experience. If you're looking for an affordabel rent and don't want to hurt the wallet, this is a great option. What's even better is that David is professional and helpful! Thanks for making my first Turo expereience a great one
The car was great. David mentioned that the brakes make a strange noise and indeed they do, but only some of the time and it does not seem to affect the braking power at all. In fact, the car braked much better than my old car.
Handy little car and David was was very helpful, even giving me a quick ride where I needed to go nearby when I dropped the car off. The brakes made a little noise but the car's performance was great, no problems, impressive gas mileage. Picking up the car was different from previous Turo experiences: I knocked on David's house's door and then received the key by hand from David in an envelope, rather than unlocking the car curbside by text message.
