I really like Varun's car, especially the convertible part. He showed me how to make the car convertible when he handed me the key and encouraged me to try to do it myself. The trip was more fun because of this car! I would rent from him again.
Varun was awesome to deal with. We really wanted a convertible but trying to rent through the rental companies it was triple the price. While this is an older car, shows signs that it has been on many adventures, it was exactly what we wanted, which was a car that we could cruise down the coast in with the top down. It did seem to suck down the gas, but we were okay with that because like I said we just wanted to cruise around with the top down and not have it cost us $150+ a day. It is a VW beetle, so keep in mind the trunk is small. We only had two carryon suitcases and a backpack and it fit very snuggly in the trunk. :-) I would recommend.
Varun was very helpful with returning location and time. The car itself is a little old and small for long drive but it's just perfect on a sunny day like ours to the Napa valley. My cousin and i had a great time.
We absolutely loved Varun's beetle. Driving up to Napa and cruising among the vineyards with a cab was beyond words! Would definitely rent his car again, communication and picking up/returning the car went as smooth as imagined - thanks again Varun!
Car was very nice but definitely very beat up / older. Lots of things made clicking sounds or noises as we drove. Varun was very responsive and punctual and the car was fun to drive so overall feeling positive. Thanks Varun
Bello was a great car! I was running a bit late on my way back to return the car, but Varun was extremely accommodating to my situation. I'll definitely rent with him again!

Great first Turo experience. Easy pickup process, right by the BART stop. Fun car to drive with the top down. Took it down to Monterey along the coast. Minor issues with the passenger side seatbelt noise indicator and back left window, but Varun was helpful and offered to look into it. Would definitely rent this car again.
We basically lived the stereotypical movie-like scene of college kids with this convertible. Varun was also very responsive and easy to communicate with. He was also flexible in terms of timings. Perhaps one thing to improve would be the cleanliness of the car both inside and outside.
The owner cancelled this trip 7 hours before it started. This message was automatically posted by Turo.

Varun was great and very flexible, his location is easily accessible by public transit. The convertible bug was a blast to drive, its zippy and easy with a nice turbo boost. Taking the top down and driving through the Redwoods and the PCH was a blast. 5 stars.
Renting the Beetle was super easy - Varun was easy to contact and unlocked the car remotely for me. He was there for when I delivered back and again was easy to coordinate with.
The car is surprisingly fun to drive, and handled the highways to Yosemite with ease. The door sensors are a little temparamental, meaning the windows do not always drop properly to enable the door to fully close (so you have to open and close a couple times sometimes), and remember to switch the headlights off, since the warning buzzer only alerts you when you reenter the car!
Neither of these minor points impacted the trip and I would happily rent the Beetle again.
Varun was very responsive and prompt with communication. Car was great, no issues but the top is a little tricky to figure out how to open and close it. Once you figure that out its a breeze. Would rent again!
My first time using Turo couldn't have been easier. I drove down to LA and back and the car drove great down the 101 and back up the grapevine. Varun answered all my questions quickly and was a great host. Highly recommended!
Easy pick up and drop off. He was very friendly. Car takes 91gas. He responded quickly and had the car to me on time. The car is cute, my dream car. Dropped the top and cruised late night, it was awesome!
