Shang and his wife are so great! They made the rental process easy and pleasant. Car was in great condition, very clean. This car is so fun to drive. It has pickup, even though it's an EV! The biggest thing to be aware of is all the details of charging. I couldn't charge where I was staying, so I had to charge while out and about. It was confusing at first, but here's what you need to know: Different electric cars use different charging ports. This car can't use Tesla charging or the charging ports for Asian cars like Nissan Leaf. It used SAE combo (fast, 60 mi / 15 mins) or J1772 (slower, 14 mi / hr) or a regular plug connected to the converter (very slow, 4 mi / hr). Use the EVGo app to find fast chargers. It's 20 cents a minute when you have the pay as you go plan. Use the ChargePoint app to find slow chargers, particularly when you'll be parked for a long time. Costs vary for ChargePoint, and there are a few free ones (especially when you're already paying for parking, like in a parking garage), but typically they are $1/hr or less. Can you take this car longer distances, like from Monterey to SF? Yes! As long as there are fast EVGo chargers along your route. I made that trip twice, charging in Gilroy and somewhere in the South Bay, like Mountain View. This added about an hour to the trip. But, having a small car really made parking in SF easier! Plus, being able to park in EV charging only spots was a big advantage. There are fewer chargers in Monterey, PG, and Carmel, so make sure to be more careful there. I couldn't figure out a way to take the car to Big Sur. I love the car and would honestly consider owning an EV if I lived in urban CA. Last point-- the car can have blind spots if you don't adjust your mirrors properly, so just be extra careful about that. And people may take pictures of your car because it looks EXACTLY like the car emoji hahaha.

Argenis was great to rent from. His vehicle was clean and in good condition. He met us at the airport and all went very smoothly. We would certainly rent again next time we come through Monterey. Thank you Argenis!

It was pretty awesome being picked up by Abdullah. He was there waiting for us at the Monterey Airport departures area, and when we dropped our car off, he was prompt. Car is large and good for tooling around the area.

This was Justin's first rental and I was pleased to be his first customer. Since I drive an BMW i3 electric this was about as close as I could get at one half to two thirds the price of major rentals, assuming they even had the car. He offered free delivery and picked up the car curbside. Remember the old joke about "washing a rental car?" Duh. Well I washed his thoroughly as it was in mint shape when I picked it up. When there's a personal one-to-one relationship with renting a car, I would hope the average Turo renter would do the same. Used $20 of gas the whole week. Must have driven 400 miles. All in all, the absolute best!

Part of why our honeymoon was so dreamy was because of our experience with Yasin's Audi A4. It's an older car, but it rides beautifully and Yasin was very accommodating when we had to postpone our trip by a day due to missed flights. We had a great time, and no worries. Thanks Yasin!

Yasin's Audi convertible was perfect for top down Central California Coast cruising! With all the natural beauty, you don't want to miss a sight with a top on your car. Car drives well and he had a cassette converter so you can play your tunes on the road!
