* Low Mileage Tesla -- unlike the other options in Turo. *
Enjoy yourself with still pristine Leather seats and freshly detailed interior that's fit to celebrate the occasion.
Lightly used Tesla perfect to the special occasion or a drive around the bay.
**** You're Looking at an Electric Car -- it doesn't take in Gas. For good reason. ****
What better way to experience the Bay Area with the most technologically advanced car. Responsive and awesome to drive, the only way to describe is for you to drive it yourself.
Range is not an issue with this Tesla as Superchargers blanket California. Drive pretty much anywhere up to 250 miles, and get back to 90% charge in 45 minutes -- the time it takes for you to get a quick bite.
This is the 85kw Model S so it goes 255+ miles in a single full charge, and goes 0-60 in around 5 seconds.
Comfortably sits 5 adults and 2 children in the rear facing seats. No need to bring booster seats, and your kids will have fun riding at the safest place in the car. If you don't need the rear-facing seats, it folds down and you get massive trunk space.
Optioned with air suspension which gives the smoothest drive possible. Barely feel the bumps on the road.
It's fully detailed, and I will give it to you at a very clean state all shiny.
If you haven't driven one yet, its very easy to manage all that power. I'll also walk you through all the goodness of it.
- Included free charging across all Tesla chargers and Superchargers.
- GPS and Navigation is obviously available and even comes with its own internet access/web browser.
Treat yourself and your kids with a smooth and clean drive around the Bay!
* I might be able to accommodate short notice rentals, send me a later request and I can adjust it to something earlier if I can accommodate it.
* I might be able to deliver the car, so send me a request and I'll evaluate it in a case-by-case basis.

Send me your flight information and I'll track your flight then I'll call you when you land. I'll be there to swoop in and pick you up from the airport curb. **Since we can't do the key hand-off AT the airport, we will be driving across the airport to my home 5 minutes away.**
For Pickups from my home, the car should be prepared and ready to just pickup from my driveway. We will be there to give a quick walkthrough with the car.
Deliveries are accommodated on a case-by-case basis and I expect to be driven back to my home unless there are other arrangements.

Can I take it up to Tahoe or other snowy areas?
If you stay on the plowed roads/interstate, I will allow it. But if you have to go to Tahoe and stay there and since my Tesla is rear-wheel drive only, it would not be safe. I've tried it, and it took some skill and understanding and I wouldn't recommend it for anybody else. So I do pack a snow chain for you for emergencies only, but not because you planned it.
How do I get it "gassed up"?
Tesla has a network of "Superchargers" that charge you up in 30-40 minutes. Perfect for that coffee break from the 200+ mile drive. They are available almost everywhere every 50-80 miles apart. The navigation computer is also very smart at making sure you never run out of power. It will tell you if you're driving too fast to reach the next charger and other details.
Welcome to the future!
Does it drive itself? Or "Auto-pilot?"
Unfortunately, that came with late 2014 Teslas and mine didn't come equipped with the necessary hardware.
How is excess mileage charged?
Any excess mileage can be paid in cash/paypal after trip ends at $0.75 / mile.
Cleanliness & Return Remaining Charge [rentals 3 days or more]
For any rentals 3 days or more: You can return the car in any state its in (in normal usage parameters) and no need to charge up. Please return with at least 50 miles remaining so there's enough to a trip to the airport.
Cleanliness & Return Remaining Charge [rentals 1 or 2 days only]
For 1 & 2 day rentals: The car must return on the cleanliness state it was provided. Otherwise, interior cleaning: $10-$15 and exterior cleaning $10. Car must be returned with at least 180 miles remaining otherwise charging charges apply. $5 for 125 - 179 miles | $10 charging charge for 50 - 124 miles | $15 for even less than 5 - 50 -- this is bad for the battery.

Dan was great to work with and the Tesla was a treat. It's a beautiful car and really enjoyable to drive. When we had additional friends join us at the last minute he was flexible and helped accommodate us. When we showed up early for our flight out he was understanding and able to again accommodate us.
Dan and his car was great! Dan communicated well throughout the trip from pickup to drop off. He was flexible when I requested to push back the pickup from 8pm to 9pm. He gave a nice little tutorial on the car when I received it answering any questions I had. I even had a small issue while driving back to my hotel at almost 10:45pm that night, and when I sent him a message about it he responded quickly and with clear instructions on how to solve the problem. The vehicle was very clean and performed wonderfully on my trip. Oh, and it was an extremely fun car to drive. Overall, it was a amazing experience and I would definitely recommend Dan and his Tesla to others, and if I'm back in the area I would rent from him again myself. Thanks Dan!
Dan was a great host! He picked us up at the airport on time, we had communicated our flight details so he was able to track our exact time of arrival. We asked Dan if we could return the car in downtown SF, no problem at all! Very recommendable.....
Dan is FANTASTIC. So easy to work with and the car is absolutely amazing. Clean, fast, fun, and more! He took his time to walk me through all the details and was super flexible when I had flight delays impacting my pick-up time. I will certainly connect with Dan again on my next trip to the City by the Bay!
Had to give a short notice and Dan was very helpful and accommodating. Tesla was amazing, first time Tesla driver and I’m hooked. Powerful car with all the bells and whistles. Will be renting again from Dan when I am in SFO next time..
Dan is a great electric car lifestyle ambassador - and therefore a wonderful asset to the Turo community. He took his time to be sure I understood the ins and outs of his pristine Tesla - and how to operate this unique vehicle. It was fun and worry free!
Dan was prompt with communication, meeting us at the airport soon after we arrived, and explaining clearly all of the car's features. Renting through Turo was certainly a hassle-free experience and with owners like Dan part of the platform, it makes for a very pleasing experience. Highly recommended and a great way to get behind the wheel of a Model S!
Dan, was great! And the Tesla was clean inside and out. I really appreciate him taking time to explain how the vehicle worked. If you're interested in trying a Tesla this is a great opportunity. Thanks again, Dan.
Dan definitely made my first Tesla driving experience a pleasant one. He communicated quickly and frequently about the pick up arrangements. When the previous renter brought the car back late and I had to wait a bit to get it, Dan kept me updated regularly, apologized (even though it was beyond his control), offered me a full refund, and graciously gave me a partial refund for the time lost after I told him I still wanted to rent it. He also bought me a cup of coffee and sat down with me to patiently answer all my Tesla questions while we waited for the car to charge. Dan's laid back personality and friendliness made it easy to relax while waiting to take the car out. The car is beautiful and extremely fun to drive. It is one of the best priced Tesla rentals I've been able to find and I would highly recommend going through Dan if you are considering buying a Tesla or just want an amazing car to drive for a day or longer.
The only caution I would note, is to leave a few hours between the last renter's return time and your pick up time in case you are getting it after someone who doesn't bring it back on time like I did. But if you rent through Dan there will be no surprises, you will be treated fairly, and he will make sure the rental experience is a positive one.
Dan's 2013 Tesla Model S was in excellent condition, and Dan was a pleasure to interact with. It was my first time driving an electric car, and due to my lack of familiarity with charging infrastructure etc. I returned the car slightly after the time we had agteed. Dan was very flexible about the situation which was very much appreciated. I would certainly rent from Dan again!
I've wanted to try a Tesla long ago and now I got this item checked on my wish list thanks to Dan. The car is in perfect condition and it's been a love at first pedal push, a totally new experience as compared to conventional gas cars. Dan brought the car to a place convenient for me and also gave me a lift to the airport after the drop off, special thanks for that!
I loved this car. Dan was great to work with and was incredible flexible with me with the pick up and drop off of the vehicle. He delivered it in excellent condition and was available for questions when they came up. You will not be disappointed with this car and I would definitely rent it again.
Dan was really communicative and flexible with us about the drop off time. He explained in detail everything we'd need to know about his car beforehand, which was great. His Tesla is awesome and we drove all over the bay and it was so much fun!
Not only was the rental rate for Dan's Tesla a great value as one of the most affordable Teslas on Turo, there was no sacrifice in terms of service, quality, and convenience. The Model S was delivered by Dan right to my door and he walked me through all of the features of a car I'd never driven before. He was professional, yet chill about the transaction. When I had questions about charging the car or had an issue (operator error) with remotely opening the car Dan was there to help instantly and without complaint. He even offered to share his charging account so I would't have to sign up. The car was immaculately clean and very well maintained. It felt and drove like a brand new car. Dan was very flexible in terms of timing of delivery of the car. Such a pleasure to deal with! I would not hesitate to rent from him again.
Great all around- service, timeliness, flexibility and an awesome car. Our family had a great time, and my daughter especially enjoyed the rear jump seats. Easily fit our 5 adults and 1 child for a road trip. Dan is a real pro and was very flexible in extending our stay and with pick up. Definitely would recommend to anyone.
Dan did a great job at accommodating a last minute reservation, was very flexible and picked me up and droped me off at a bart station near his place.
Great experience, great guy and the Tesla is awesome! :)
First time renting from Turo and Dan made this a really great experience. He's a real gentleman who made himself available on 3 hours notice. He was totally cool and genuinely made us feel welcomed renting his ultra clean Tesla. He gave a helpful run down on the car which helped us navigate well. Rent from this guy if your looking for great experience, he's seasoned and a real professional.
One more thing, he details the Tesla and regularly. It literally looks and feels brand new.
This was my first time trying out Turo and I couldn't have asked for a better person to rent from than Dan. Communication with Dan was prompt and very easy. He was very flexible with the pick up, even recommending to pick it up from his place, saving us both time and money for me.
Upon pick up, he went through the details of how to operate his Tesla and was very thorough when going over the dings already on the car. When I accidentally turned on the cruise control instead of the blinkers, he stayed relaxed which helped calm my nerves down as well.
Returning the car was just as easy and smooth. But the best part of renting from Dan was his exceptional service and willingness to help his clients. When I forgot my garage door remote at 11PM, Dan was very kind enough not only to answer my call, but to open the car for me to get in a grab my remote!
My fiancee and I had a great trip in Dan's Model S. Dan is simultaneously very laid back and obviously fastidious about the condition in which he keeps his Model S. When I met to pick up the car from Dan, it was incredibly clean, all shiny, and ready right on time. I felt great pulling away in such a pristine car. Dan was relaxed and chatted with me about EVs before I got going, and was a pleasure to do business with. He wants you to enjoy the car and send you on your way with a smile.
There were zero problems with the well-maintained car during our rental period, but I felt confident that Dan would help out with anything that might come up. Dan provided his FastPass to use free of charge and, in addition to free use of Tesla's Supercharger network, Dan also provides free charging on all major networks. When I pointed out that he had forgotten to provide the ChargePoint, etc. networ RFID with the car (I had my own anyway) Dan immediately offered to reimburse me for any charges (pun intended :). It actually didn't come to that, but rest assured Dan provides everything for a trouble-free electricity-powered drive!
Renting from Dan was a great experience I would highly recommend both him and his Model S.
Dan was great to do business with! Responsive, punctual, and flexible - all the qualities that made our first experience with Turo absolutely awesome. His beautiful Tesla was in immaculate condition and drives even better than I'd expected. Thanks
Dan was a pleasure to work with. He was very helpful in setting this up and always responded rapidly to my questions. The car is the real deal. A Tesla Model S! There are more advanced ones out there, but this car is listed at a great rate and gives you 90% of the ultimate possible experience of the P85D. We put over 400 miles on the car and loved every minute.
Getting in contact with Dan was very easy and he was extremely helpful. The car was shiny an clean, it was my first time in a Tesla. Dan explained all I needed to know patiently. What a car, what a drive, a unforgettable trip.
The car is beautiful, fun to drive, and in excellent condition. Plus, Dan does a great job telling you about all the features. It's clear he loves EVs in general, Teslas in particular, and sharing his enthusiasm with the people who rent is car. He was very generous with his time, letting us be a little flexible with the schedule. The car was a blast to drive and the experience made for a great birthday gift for my dad. Definitely recommended!!
I booked Dan's Tesla in a moment's notice. Even with a very short notice Dan responded really quickly. Picked it up from his home conveniently off 101 not far from SFO.
Even with the very short notice of just a few hours, the car was clean and pretty much newly detailed. It's a 2013 car and it definitely felt new with the newly conditioned leather.
Dan even spent significant time orienting me with all the vehicle niceties. The car is awesome, the instant torque is great and specially with all that silence when it does it. Seriously, super quiet and very comfortable ride!
Will definitely rent again if I'm going for a roadtrip, Thanks Dan!
Dan is polite, honest, on time, keeps his car impeccably clean, provides a personal touch by picking you up and dropping you off, and is UTTERLY AMAZING!! Do not pass on the opportunity to enjoy an adventure in this Tesla. A++ in every category.
Dan's car was ready at sheduled time, cleaned outside and inside with battery charged, looked like brand new! We received all necessary instructions related to the car maintenance/charging. We've spent fantastic moments driving south on 1/101. This car is amazing, and contact with Dan for sure recommended! Not sure if five stars is enough :)
