Zoeb was extremely easy to reach, always texted me back very quickly, and was polite and patient with my many questions (being a first-time Turo user). The Nissan Sentra is an older car and slightly beat-up looking, but since I drive an older car myself, I found it very easy to drive and reliable. The whole transaction (picking up and dropping off) went very smoothly and Zoeb was a consummate professional.
The problem I encountered was that when I booked the car, I had forgotten how far Fremont is from the Oakland Airport (it's a half hour with no traffic, but 45 min to an hour with). Factoring in the expense of taking Lyft to and from the pick-up/drop-off location (it cost me around $65 round-trip, not counting tip), and the time it took to go so far in the opposite direction of where I was going (I was staying in Oakland), using Turo turned out not to be worth it for me (I think I saved about $100 vs. a regular rental car company, but I spent about 2.5 hours in travel time more than I otherwise would have, had I been able to pick up/drop off the car at the airport). I also very nearly missed my flight going back because I'd underestimated how much traffic there'd be getting back to the Oakland airport.
I think Turo offers a good alternative to Hertz/Avis etc. if you can find a car close to the location you're going to be in (and if you don't care about driving a new car), but not so much if you have to travel a long distance to pick up/drop off the car. Also, I find their cancellation policy extremely rigid (I found a cheaper more convenient option the day after I booked with Turo, but I wasn't able to cancel without losing my money, even though my trip was nearly a month away).
One other caveat: Turo users traveling alone (especially if female) may not be comfortable renting a car without interacting with a live human being or a regular company. I picked up the car in a remote parking lot with no one around as far as the eye could see (I swapped text messages with Zoeb to retrieve the keys). Not a big deal in daylight, but after dark I would have been pretty creeped out. Would have dropped off the same way but Zoeb just happened to be there by chance.
None of the issues I had reflect negatively on Zoeb personally, though, which is why I'm rating my trip 5 stars.
Good experience, the price was right and it worked for an eight day trip to LA. No mechanical issues, reliable. Its a little slow to accelerate on inclines but in a way that's to be expected with older cars. The AC and radio are working great.
2 star review for the 05 Nissan Sentra. The interior was very dirty to the point of smelling. The gas tank was only half full so I had to strategize how to return it around the same. The positives were quick response and economical fuel mileage.
Had an adventurous time renting with Zoeb. Prompt responses made everything the most convenient they could have been. Enjoyed running errands and mall hopping during the hectic time known as Black Friday. Not hesitant at all to rent again. Thanks Zoeb for your excellent accommodation.
