The Golf GTI needs no introduction, the original hot hatch now in its seventh generation in what has been lauded as the best GTI yet. i bought this car brand new in March 2015 and I maintain it to a very high standard and the car is in excellent condition and is ready to rent.

Why rent my GTI?
This car is exclusively available for car sharing and if it is not booked, it is available.
I only charge 37.5 cents a mile for overages, half the standard Turo charge.
I'm flexible on delivery times, pick up and drop off arrangements. I can remote lock/unlock the vehicle so even if I am not available, I'll make sure the car is delivered based on your requirements.
Fast response time for rental inquiries, don't just take my word for it, check out my other reviews.
I will provide free delivery for longer rentals. If you want to rent the car for a short period of time if I can accommodate your delivery request I will but I reserve the right to charge a delivery fee of $50 for one and two day rentals.
The car is available for long and short term rentals, it is a non smoking car. Pets are allowed in the car if they are in a carrier and well behaved. Finally, the car takes premium (91) fuel, please provide a receipt showing the correct fuel was put in.
Tony's sparkling clean, athletic Volkswagen Golf GTI was precisely the perfect solution for our day trip from SF to Calistoga. This car has the get-up-and-go for a highway trip and yet had room for the packing (swim gear, homemade pie, homemade bread, wine etc) I had to schlep for the event. And it's not a gigantic lard-bottomed SUV - rather she's a svelt, well, VW Golf!
Tony was awesome - Turo didn't retain my request for delivery and Tony pivoted instantly and sweetly. He was super helpful when needed and gracious.
You can't go wrong with Tony. And this car was a perfect gem.
Tony was responsive to any questions/requests that came up. Car was fun to drive and Tony has kept it in great shape. Location was in a hilly part of town (great for driving, tougher for getting to the car by foot/bus) - but worth it overall. Would take another trip with his GTI if back in town - thanks Tony!
Tony and his GTI were simply awesome! In my opinion, this GTI is the best way to see San Francisco and Tony was super flexible and cool to rent from. I couldn't recommend both the car and the guy higher. We will definitely be renting again the next time we're in San Fran!
Tony was wonderful to rent from, and the car is awesome! Super clean, well cared for, and absolutely no issues. Pickup at the Turo lot was a cinch, and Tony was very communicative and easy to contact. This was our first time using this service, and Tony has set the bar very high!
First time using turo didn't know what to expect tony was very quick with his responses to my questions and was very helpful, would definitely use turo again thank you tony for making it a great experience.
Outstanding rental experience. I was a first timer and was a bit nervous but Tony was very professional, communicative and responsive. Great car, and the process for picking the car up at the Turo lot in SFO was very easy to use. I will definitely use Turo again! Thanks Tony!
Tony is very flexible and the car was amazing. It was spotless and a fun car to drive! He confirmed my trip within 10 minutes of my request, and always responded instantly if I needed anything. I will definitely rent from Tony again!
We had a wonderful trip driving the scenic Sonoma coast, visiting friends and family along the way. The trip was a chance for us to test drive a car we are considering purchasing, a Volkswagen GTI. We loved the car. Conventional car rental companies did not offer the selection of cars that we were interested in test driving; Turo did. Plus Tony, the GTI's owner, offered door-to-door pick and return service, which we really appreciated. The car was clean and fueled and Tony was a pleasure to work with making arrangement for delivery and pick-up of the car. We have been telling our friends about Turo as an alternative to conventional rental car companies. We call it the Uber of car rental. Better car selection and better pricing. We'll use Turo again.
Tony's a very nice guy who will work with you to solve anything. We had accidentally booked the car for one less day than we should have, and we quickly solved it thanks to Tony.
The GTI is an incredible ride, we drove her from San Francisco to our stay in Carmel, toured Big Sur, and the gorgeous PCH (Highway 1). It has a dynamic, responsive chassis, and the new EA888 2.0T with DSG make this car very fast yet a comfortable cruiser that will average 25 mpg while in sport mode. Will definitely rent again the next time we're around Cali.
My first Turo experience has had me recommending the service (and to friends visiting San Francisco Tony's car) non stop. Tony's communication was stellar, and most importantly his car was clean and very well maintained. His GTI is so much fun to drive, and the DSG gearbox makes it even more enjoyable. Thank you Tony for a great first experience with Turo, and I look forward to renting your GTI the next time I'm in SF.
I rented Tony's VW Golf GTI in late September, and I couldn't have had a better experience. Pick-up and drop-off at SFO were seamless, and Tony was responsive to all questions during my trip. The highest compliment I can pay is that I'll be on the look-out to rent Tony's GTI the next time I'm in the bay area.
Tony personally delivered the vehicle and was gracious and helpful. The car was well kept and incredibly fun on our wine country trip. Dropping it off at the airport was painless and convenient. Next time I'm down in California I will gladly rent from Tony again.
I highly recommend Tony if you go to the Bay Area. He responds fast (literally within one or two minutes) to messages and is always online to answer questions. Very accommodating and professional. Would definitely rent from him again.
This car is great! Everything is in good status, and the trip went really well. Tony is very nice to work with. He always responds the messages quickly. Our train was delayed, but Tony made a smart and special arrangement so we got the vehicle right outside the Station when we arrived. Overall the experience is perfect. Thank you so much Tony!
This was my first time using Turo and Tony made the process very easy. He was quick to respond to my questions and explained everything well. He seems to be a really nice guy too! As others have said, the GTI is great. Very responsive and quick, but comfortable and efficient at the same time. The car is in great shape too. Overall a great experience!
Tony was an absolute pleasure to deal with. So prompt in his responses and did everything to make our trip as easy as possible. The car itself is almost brand new with all the latest gadgets to make your trip easier. I couldn't recommend Tony and his GTI more and I look forward to getting an opportunity to call on him again.
Tony is a really nice guy, and he has this awesome GTI that is fun to drive. It's worth every penny. Fuel efficient, great handing, good horsepower and torque for highway and city driving. There are normal, sport and individual modes (I love the sport mode). The 6-speed automatic dual clutch gearbox is very smooth and quick. It also has sufficent trunk space for my 2.5 luggages. Car is clean inside out. It also has rim protectors. Fastrek is provided. Pickup and dropoff time are as expected and on time. Very easy to arrange. Good communication. Tony is really acommodative, responsive and quick in replying messages and questions. This gives me a perfect and memoriable relayride experience. I strongly recommend Tony and his Gti, and I will definitely ride it again when I come to San Francisco,CA. It's my pleasure to get a chance to ride on this 2015 VW HOT HATCH. Good luck and wish you all the best, Tony.
It is my second trip with Turo and the rental car experience with Tony is definitely AMAZING! We couldn't ask for a better car: perfect 2015 car as new, powerful engine, smooth control. Tony is very nice and prepared all kinds of cables and chargers for us. If you wanna rent a car to explore SF or California, you certainly don't wanna miss this car!
We had a fantastic road trip thanks to Tony's GTI. The car was clean inside and outside when we first found it. We liked the size of the car, not too big not too small. Our two medium sized luggages were easily fit in. Picking up and dropping off the car were super convenient and Tony made communication between us very easy.
Tony dropped it off at location, met us at SFO departures to pick it up. Easy communication, fantastic car, especially on Marin county mountain roads. Best car rental ever. Car and renter highly recommended!
Tony was an amazing owner. The car was in prefect condition, clean and in flawless condition. He even includes charging cables for iPhone or Android devices. The car is one of the best "hot hatches" ever made, it loves spirited driving on the nice two lane coastal roads. Just show some respect, feed her the premium juice and you will love this car. Tony made the experience special
Great experience from start to finish! Tony was awesome; responsive, flexible and punctual. 5 star customer service all around! His GTI is new and really fun to drive. Highly recommend renting Tony's GTI.
Tony is awesome. First, let me say that I've rented from Turo before. Ive also done the Hertz thing as well. I hate the corporate run companies because they arent personable , empathetic, enthusiastic, or remotely helpful at getting you into a vehicle when you need one. This is one reason im all for ride rental/sharing. And its also why people like Tony make it that much better. I took a road trip to Oregon, and wanted a fun & enjoyable car . I contacted Tony before my trip and asked him about the daily mileage, and from minute one he worked with me to accommodate my trip plans , distance, days, etc. On the way home, we got caught up in some traffic & bad weather. I gave Tony a quick text to let him know and we worked out a plan for a new time & location within 5 minutes. This would have never happened at Hertz or some giant company that only cares about making themselves money. Tony genuinely likes cars and you can see that from talking with him. Would definitely recommend & rent from again.
Tony's car was in great shape, and worked well on the trip. What surprised me the most was that he dropped the car off at the airport when I arrived, essentially bringing the car to me after I had my luggage, and then allowed me to "return" the car by simply parking it downtown in any parking spot near my hotel. That was way faster and more convenient for me than the dozen or so rental car agency cars I've used that have counters and shuttles, etc. He didn't have to be so convenient or nice, but he was and that definitely was a great surprise for me.
