Drive electric and switch to gas when electric storage runs out.
Never have to worry about sitting and waiting for car to charge and save money while using electricity.
Free charge in any fast DC charging network through a key chain pass.
Brand new top of the line. Tech package, leather, radar cruise control (don't have to step on brake or gas) and car parallel parks by itself.
2016 BMW i3Howard's BMW15516
5-Star Experience. Howard was amazing throughout the whole process - from the moment I reserved the car (one of several awesome ones in his fleet) to the return drop off. He was friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the vehicle. I will definitely rent from him in the future for every trip to LAX.
This was my first Turo reservation and the first time driving an electric car. The experience renting this car from Howard was great. Everything was smooth and Howard was very communicative during the rental process.
Howard was so helpful and accommodating. Delivery to Long Beach went great. It was my first time driving an i3, and he took the time to show me how everything worked and get comfortable with the car.
The car itself was also awesome. Very fun to drive, and everyone I gave a ride to commented on how interesting and cool it was.
I was driving a lot between Anaheim and Los Feliz/Silverlake, and got a lot of use out of the range extender. It was kind of a bummer to have to put gas in an electric car, but I never felt like I was going to be stranded. The density of Level 2 charging stations in those areas was a little disappointing, but I usually managed to find one within a half mile or so. I'd recommend getting the ChargePoint app before you arrive, and maybe choosing a hotel or AirBnB with a charger. (It's LA, you're going to spend more time in the car anyway!)
All in all a fantastic trip and a great car. I hope to drive it again the next time I'm in LA.
Howard was great, really easy to work with. The car was in mint condition, very fun car to drive. It was my first time driving electric, Howard was patient and walked me through everything. Highly recommend renting from him.
