Dan was super accommodating and very organized! Everything went along well without a glitch! The Tesla was amazing and I finally got to live my dream and drive in 'ludicrous mode". The autopilot and navigation features were very cool and allowed safe stress-free driving in an unfamiliar multi lane highway. Turo, Dan and the Tesla made this the best rental experience ever. Definitely will do this again- way to go!

Tesla Model 3 2018
If you are in the San Jose area, and you need a car, look no further as this is hands down the best rental you can get. I spent 5 days on business and being a huge EV fan, as soon as I saw his sleek black Model 3, I knew I had to get it. Christopher was quick to confirm my reservation. I had selected the airport pickup option and Christopher was right on time for the pickup (on the dot!). Let’s talk about the car - I’m a huge gear head/petrol head, and as much as I will appreciate the pop and crackle of a F-type, there is no denying the great drive that is Christopher’s Model 3. It’s the perfect daily driver, and your legs for any business or leisure trip. The condition of the car was excellent, and you could tell the car was well taken care of. Extremely clean frunk to trunk :) You know it’s clean when any drop of scrap you leave stands out to the point where it bugs you as the renter! Don’t let size fool you! The Model 3 is Tesla’s smallest offering in its EV lineup, but you would not notice! There ample room for all your luggage. Working in the media field, I travel with Pelican cases and I was able to transport all I needed with no issue. In my opinion this is the car to give people buyers remorse, if you happen to have recently made a vehicle purchase. To those who are unfamiliar with EV driving dynamics, the drive compared to a combustion powered vehicle is quite different, in a good way. The fact you don’t have to be on the brake pedal as often is amazing. Power is delivered from input on the acceleration pedal, and corresponds with how much you apply. But unlike gas, when you let go, there is less momentum carrying you forward and instead the car comes to a near halt. Regenerative braking comes into play at this point. This makes stop and go traffic, as well as normal downtown navigating a more relaxed drive. My journey took the vehicle through the winding roads of Big Basin State Park and the driving dynamics really showed going around the bends. It is a quiet, smooth ride, and I even joke that with the windows down, you can hear the leaves crack beneath the tires. The range of Christopher’s Model 3 was perfect for my trip. Between the excursions and local errands, I never had any issues or concern with the range, and Christopher provided me with a full charge upon pickup. So in other words ready to start the adventure! San Jose is also a really friendly city to EVs, as is the rest of the Bay Area. It will put a smile on your face when you end your trip realizing you didn’t have to pay any California gas prices. The return process with Christopher was amazing, and once again the flexibility of the owner really shows! Due to constant changes with my agenda, the car ended up having to be returned from downtown instead of the airport. I communicated that to Christopher on relative short notice, but he was able to fulfill my request. There may be many Model 3s on Turo now, but if you want the level of courtesy and customer service to complement such an amazing car, Christopher is your go to! 10/10 would rent from again, and I set this experience as a benchmark from what I expect in a Turo rent. Thank you Christopher for an awesome time with your car, and for all your courtesy. ~ Don’t be shocked if you go out and want to buy a Model 3 after driving this one!

Mazda MX-5 Miata 2008
A great experience with Zoeb. The car’s in good shape and fun to drive. It’s located about 10 minutes from the airport. Don’t let that discourage you. He arranges an Uber ride both ways lickety-split. I’ve spent considerably more time in long rental lines and courtesy vans than it took to get on the road with this rental. Someone bumped into the car while it was parked, and Zoeb responded to my text immediately and talked me through how he wanted me to proceed. Really nice guy, highly recommend.

MINI Cooper 2006
I wasn’t sure at first how this Mini experience would fair when I first booked this trip. Let me be the one to tell you, having driven hundreds of different cars in my life and being an enthusiast myself, this car is perfect. The “John Cooper Works” tier for this comes with not only sport brakes, suspension and a beautifully tight and responsive clutch, it is also supercharged. Those factors alone, mixed with a classic personality means that this car (that’s 12 years old) handles and keeps up with the best of them. Driving this car up and down the PCH for a friend’s wedding was absolute nirvana for a car nard like myself. Luggage space was fair and fit both mine and my girlfriends carry-on luggage easily (we mostly kept the backseats down the entire trip). Be advised that if you’re not really confident in a manual transmission, the shifting needs your full attention. With that being said, it really does compliment a true driving experience. This car is small on size, and huge on personality and smiles per gallon. Ron was a fantastic communicator leading up to and throughout the trip. I would rent from him again in a heartbeat & he really is a genuinely nice guy to boot!

Jason H. - September 19, 2018
Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 2013
Fast and efficient communication, and car! Yes, this red delight is every bit as monstrous of a race car as renters are saying. I had strangers at a gas station ask me to rev the engine just to hear the beauty. The clutch is heavy, but I drove it 2 hours in some traffic and it wasn't too bad though - for the same drive back it was much nicer wearing my hiking boots than shoes with thinner soles. Hint: to get to reverse, push down and move into first gear position.
