Wonderful first time experience with TURO. Widodo is very accommodating to our needs as we were traveling with small children. He keeps his vehicles is excellent condition and very clean. Will use next time we are in San Jose area.
We had a great drive up to Sonoma. Typical BMW: quiet, comfortable and had power and exhileration in sport mode. But there were 2 engine lights that kept coming on. One showed a picture of the engine and Widodo had warned me that this meant the turbo decided to turn off and there would be less power. That did happen twice in the ~350 miles/2 days we drove it. The fix was to pull over and stop/start the car, or just keep driving.
But the other light was worse. It's like a little triangle in a circle. It came on constantly. When it came on, there was an annoying beep, the cruise control turned off and the screen said something about slippery conditions. There were never any such conditions. When this happened the gas pedal stopped responding. This happened to us once when we were trying to merge into highway traffic from a loop/on ramp. My lane was ending, I was trying to accelerate to highway speed and suddenly the car just started coasting.
Widodo was very nice. He even saved my garage remote which I forgot on the sunvisor.
Widodo was great to rent a car from. I had a great time driving his BMW 535xi. He was very accommodating and flexible with pickup and drop off. The whole process was a breeze, and I would definitely rent from him again.
It was my first time experience with Turo when I rent the BMW from Widodo.I would definitely rent from him again. My request was very last minute but Widodo was very accommadating and worked out a way for him to deliver it the car to me. The vehicle was in excellent condition. Widodo went over the features of the car with me and walked the outdside of the car with me to confirm everything was in good condition. He even gave me a few tips about being a first timer on Turo. Widodo is nice, accomadating and had a great vehicle.
