Daniel and his Chevrolet Camaro are amazing! I higly recommend Daniel and definitely recommend that car! It is a BEAST on wheels. If you love American Muscle Cars, amazing exhaust sound and wanna be bold on the road, just close that deal!
We originally booked the vehicle for 9 am but Daniel contacted me the night prior and said he'd be closer to 10 am as the previous renter left the car in a mess; one hour later than originally planned but I'm fine with that. Come 10:00 am, we're ready to leave and we're waiting around at the hotel for the vehicle. The vehicle ended up arriving around 11:20 am. Daniel said he was getting the vehicle cleaned at the car wash just down the street. Daniel did update me on his location throughout the morning but the car wash malfunctioned and he was stuck inside hence the tardiness. I feel this could have been avoided had the vehicle been cleaned earlier in the morning and was disappointed Daniel was almost an hour and a half late to the 10:00 am pickup time that he suggested. Fuel was at a quarter tank at pickup, not a huge issue but was expecting it to be full. I'm guessing the previous owner didn't fill it up prior to returning the vehicle.
Even though pickup was disappointing, we still had a blast the day we had the car. The vehicle was in pretty good condition considering it's a 2 year old rental car. Vehicle is fast and sounds great. Brakes were a bit squeaky, might need new pads. Overall, I'm happy with the rental but just wish the pickup process was smoother. With that being said, I do believe in second chances and would likely rent from Daniel again. This experience is hopefully just a one time issue for him.
We put the top down, music up, and had a great time cruising around LA in this ride. My lady loved it when we punched it on the freeway and could hear all that horsepower. Definitely a fun car. Pick-up and delivery was easy. We did everything at the airport and it all went smooth. Dropping off at the airport is a little tricky, so you may want to meet Daniel or one of his associates just outside the airport and have them drop you at your gate. That would have probably made things even smoother. This was my first time using Turo and we loved it!
Great experience. Flexible owner. My flight was delayed coming into LAX so Daniel left the car in the arrival parking lot next to the baggage claim.
The car itself was supper fun. Same price as renting a chevy spark from hertz which made this a no brainer. Car came clean and no issues during my weekend.
If you have the time I highly recommend taking Angle Crest Highway up to Mt Wilson Observatory. The twisty mountain roads is a great way to make the most out of the V8 and drop top. Good tires and big boy breaks left me always feeling in control. Keep it in regular drive mode and you'll get moderate (for a V8) gas mileage. Throw it into sport mode and use the paddle shifters and you can watch the spedo go up at almost the same rate as the gas needle hits the floor (100% worth it).
Daniel was beyond accommodating very professional in demeanor and actions. Gave me a quick tutorial on certain gadgets as well as putting the top down. His timing was perfect in every aspect of pick up and drop off. I would def get this car again when I come back to Cali. The car by far is amazing looking and at almost 500hp there's not much more to ask for. Hope this helps and once again if there were more than 5 stars I would rate it more.
Daniel is such a great owner!! His quick response does make thing goes much easier for renter. I definitely rent from him again and would refer to friends. Camaro is such a fun car to drive, made my trip more enjoyable!!
