Remote check-in/check-out instructions: Here are your instructions for pick up:
When you get to the car please take pictures of all 4 corners of the car, be sure to get the whole car in the pictures not just fragments. Also send a picture of your license close up and yourself in front of the car, once you send that, please text me and i will give you a code to a lock box that has the key in it, the lock box is on the patio rail. Once you get the key i just need a picture of the gas / miles sent BEFORE driving off...you are unauthorized to drive the vehicle until that last picture is sent.
Please call me at 831-238-8080 and we can work out the details prior to your trip
Raj communicates clearly, and was a pleasure to interact with. Made pickup and drop off a breeze. Would rent from him again!
This Golf GTI is the perfect car for the slopes of SF. There's a few niggles with it (manual entry/locking, no aux), but other than that, it's a ton of fun to drive. The DSG gearbox is mighty impressive, with quick shifts right from the steering, and the turbo has a good range of use. Its just as happy driving quietly around as it is charging up the hills; driven right, it's a very rewarding experience.
If the niggles could be ironed out, this would be the vehicle I'd rent out every single time.
Raj's GTI was great to drive but was dead when I arrived. The inside of the windshield was coated in dirt and the glove box and carpets had a previous users things lying around. Raj responded quickly to the dead battery and gave me a jump and then later when the dead battery persisted came by and replaced the battery. Regardless this impacted my plans. The key fob is dead and you must lock/unlock the doors manually, if you don't turn the key far enough when unlocking you can set off the alarm. There was no aux input when I had the car and Raj says he's working on this. It doesn't help that the CD player is broken as well. Overall, after the repair the GTI was fun to drive and got me where I needed to go, but this was far from the ideal Turo experience. If Raj can resolve those issues, I would rent this car again.
Great communication, super flexible with a last minute rental. One star of only because it's the only car I've ever rented that didn't have a 12v to USB power converter, so my phone died. Other than that, good car.
Raj was extremely helpful, rented the car for 2 days, after the 2 days needed a Little extra time and raj had no problem allowing me to rent the car longer than expected. His response time was fast. I would recommend this rental to anyone. Thanks again!!
Raj was an awesome host and I enjoyed the easiness of renting his car. The only negative thing I could probably say about the whole experience was the car may need new windshield wipers as I had it when a storm started. I would definitely rent with Raj again!
Had a great time renting Raj's GTI. He replies fast and prompt. Location is awesome to say the least.. it is < 5 min walk to VTA light rail which makes it super convenient and inexpensive to pickup and dropoff the car. Thanks,
Had a great experience renting Raj's VW GTI. The car was clean, had a full tank of gas, and was ready to go. It was a great car to get around in and fun to drive! I needed a car last minute and Raj was very quick to respond.
