I had a great rental with Shreyas' BMW. He was really easy to communicate with and responded quickly. He clearly knows the routine with Turo, which is very reassuring. I had no issues picking up or returning.
Also, for anyone worried about driving a manual around SF, the BMW has hill-start assist so the car doesn't roll back when starting on a hill in first (or parallel parking).
This is my first time using Turo.... not the best. Well the car was great looking in pictures but was filthy when pick up. I never had the chance to even meet Shreyas. Though not a requirement; He wasnt there for the 4pm key handoff and his wife who was very nice was left with the unfortunate task to get the car unlocked... the car also is a vehicle used for their "Getaround" account so they were supposed to be able to unlock it with a remote unlock through the app on their phones. Guess what. It didn't work. They tried dozens of times. And this Friday was very hot about 100 degrees in SF which is never usually the case. But nonetheless I was standing there waiting to be able to head to Napa on my birthday but instead I was stuck waiting for the rental car to be unlocked. It was absolutely terrible. I won't rent again with them for that reason. But wait there is more! I waited for over TWO HOURS (2 hrs) to receive my rental. I didn't not get it at 4pm as expected. I got it at 6:37pm on Friday September 1st. Unacceptable and not what was expected using Turo and renting with Shereyas.. Also the inside of the car was a huge mess. There were chip bags and just general refuse laying about. I actually took the liberty of cleaning it out myself before my gf got into the car.. the Gas tank was not full!!!! That's unacceptable because I was asked to fill it up with premium gas which I did! The car smelled decent but not like you'd expect a BMW to smell. Aired out the car. The car needed a car wash badly and looked like it had been under a tree for awhile. The car was filled with a ton of personal items even the trunk and I was like where do I put my luggage? Unacceptable. So many things were not done even in the slightest way of right. One thing to add in an attempt to make things right, I guess Shreyas wife whom was very nice had said that I could extend my trip to Sunday morning before 10am since there was another booking at that time which I liked but upon letting Shreyas know, he said I could do 9:30 from the original planned of 9am because I was running behind. No decency to spare me that because apparently the next booking magically required the vehicle earlier than 10? Which means what? That I'm no long a paying customer? No worries though I will be discussing this with Turo and let them know my struggle with my FIRST booking. I suggest to other users to not utilize this listing because there is more than meets the eye and it's not what you bargain for.
Shreyas and his wife were incredibly accommodating! Very easy to communicate with. Had no problems with the car whatsoever and it was an absolute pleasure to drive. Best value for the price hands down. Great for long distances and city driving. Will definitely rent again when we're in town!
LOVED the manual transmission in this 3-series, super fun to drive (took it to Mt. Tam) and great on gas too! Shreyas and his wife were super easy to communicate with - timing the pickup and dropoff + post drive finalizations. Would definitely rent with them again.
