There aren't many things that have a guaranteed huge benefit as compared to the risk: my first experience on TURO has been unforgettable. First of all, Samer is a role model of a host. It may be said a lot about every owner, but it's not often that you come across an owner whom you can chill with, share a beer and chitchat, keep in touch and make adjustments that suit your schedule. He's been understanding, generous and acxommodatong, despite my carelessness at the end of the trip..
Onto the car: well, I had it for almost 2 weeks, and I doubt there's a better value for money deal you can get on any car sharing platform. It was spot on. Samer has been conservative in the details he's listed about the car, but it's pretty much the fully loaded SL550, complete with the 14 way power adjustable seats and (a blessing in winter California, by the way) the airscarf feature that blows hot air onto your neck. The only thing that's missing, that he will add, is a way to play music from your phone on the Harman/Kardon system. Once that's fitted, its probably the perfect car for California cruising. Everything functions as advertised and for the miles, the car feels tight as a drum.
Thanks for a great experience Samer and TURO. I'd like to bring my wife next time and rent again :)
The car looks amazing, completely spotless, and is very torquey and powerful. Very fun to drive and a bargain at this price. Mohamed was a pleasure to deal with and I definitely plan to rent this car again.
