Great fun to drive this super safe and super fast Volvo. Open the sunroof and let in the California sun by day and moon by night. Fully loaded. Automatic with Sport override.
"Several editors (at Car and Driver) lauded this Volvo's intelligent balance between interior space and exterior bulk. It provides ample elbowroom for five, a 12-cubic-foot trunk, and rear seats that split and fold to stretch the cabin's versatility. Consistent with its Swedish breeding, the S60 is tastefully attractive without feeling too tightly laced. Its balanced proportions, flowing roofline, and diagonal grille sash provide a pleasant break from the compact-sports-sedan segment's German standard.
Inside, smartly sculpted and trimmed surfaces set a mood that's more relaxing than that in comparable Audi, BMW, or ÂMercedes sedans. The front seats offer easy entry and comfortable support..."
Car and driver said "when this S60 was nicely loosened up, it was significantly quicker: The 5.5 seconds we measured during the 0-to-60-mph sprint and 14 seconds flat at 102 mph in the quarter-mile are just a touch slower than a stick-shift BMW 335i."
There are several cancellations showing on my trip record. These were due to an unexpected mechanical issue and the car's paint being keyed. The car is freshly painted, in perfect mechanical condition, and there will be no cancellations.
Please also note that the car should be returned in the condition it was rented. If the interior or exterior requires more than a minor wipe down, please have the car washed and the interior cleaned.
The car is located at the Turo lot, 9067 Loyola Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, 90045. You can drive to the lot or take Uber, etc. Or you can wait for a van as follows: Shuttle service from LAX Airport to the Turo Valet lot International phone numbers: Please call us at (310) 227-6998 to request the shuttle. The LA lot is open from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm every day. *Complimentary shuttle service is provided by the Custom Hotel. The shuttle runs every 45 minutes, and requires that you use their automated system to request your ride. Please note that traffic in and around LAX may delay your pick up during peak hours. Please give us a call at (310) 227-6998 if you need to reach the Turo LAX team. • Once you have arrived at LAX, please text "SHUTTLE" to (310) 961-4115. • When prompted, text the terminal number where you are located, and the number of people in your party. (For example: Terminal 3, 2 people) • Please wait under the red “Hotel and Courtesy Shuttles” sign on the arrivals level. Click on the link provided by the automated system to track the shuttle. Look for the white van marked “Custom Hotel”. • Once you have arrived at the Custom Hotel, proceed towards the back of the property to the parking spaces labeled "Valet Only"; a Turo team member will be there to assist you. If you have to wait longer than 15 minutes please call us at (310) 227-6998 and we will do our best to pick you up sooner.
Since the car is parked at the Turo lot at LAX, I have no control over how clean the car is, other than what the lot attendants tell me. If you feel it is not clean enough, just email me and we will work out an agreement for you to wash the vehicle and I will paypal or Venmo you money.
DO NOT go on the TOLL Roads. You are likely to forget to call them and pay. Then there will be huge upcharges and I will need to send you those bills.
2012 Volvo S60Randy's Volvo15528
Great location to pick up. Randy was very responsive when you need him. A minor note is that there is courtesy shuttle from LAX to the turo lot but no shuttle on your way back.
I would rent Randy's car again without a second thought. The car had not been washed but Randy offered to have me wash it and he would reimburse me. The interior of the car was not clean which isn't a big deal to me but may be to others. The car was easy to drive and Randy was great at communicating. I was late returning the vehicle by 20 minutes and Randy was very kind about it.
Great car that was fun to drive around LA for the weekend. It's parked right near LAX so it's very convenient to pick up / drop off coming to and from the airport - just give yourself slightly more time on drop off than a commercial rental car to be safe. Thanks Randy!
Randy had the car ready to go, full tank, and disclosed a couple nicks and scratches prior to the rental. Great car for getting around LA, zippy and pretty fuel efficient. It's a deal I will take again.
Randy was extremely easy to communicate with and provided a clean and wonderful vehicle. His Volvo had a ton of power and was extremely comfortable.

Randy is very nice and easy to rent from. He replied right away and was easy to get ahold of. His car was exactly as pictured and I had it for the whole week and only used one tank of gas! I would rent from him again! Thanks Randy!
Randy was amazing and very much cooperative. Car had an amazing pick up and all the features of a luxury car including front seat warming, cruise control, city safety, sun roof etc. and also had great mileage. Will definitely recommend it and will surely rent again in future.
