Great guy and great car. Ahmad was very flexible and helpful. I would highly recommend using his car for your trip.
I had a great experience renting from Ahmad. I extended my trip by 1 day in the middle of my trip and he was very prompt in following through. Great car with lots of storage space. I could fit 5 carry-on bags and additional stuff in the trunk. I had 2 kids and an adult in the back seat. Great value compared to renting a minivan. Will rent from him again.
We drove all the way up from SAN Francisco to Seattle and the all trip was perfect. The Car is comfortable and the trunk is huge. (Great for a 5 girls road trip!) Absolutely a great experience! Thanks Ahmad! :)
I was a little dismayed when I first saw the car. The car had its share of dings and scratches and blotches which is to be expected from a ten-year-old car. I didn't expect the car to have bird droppings all over it. The owner did not have it washed. I was assured by the Turo people at the Turo lot that I did not have to return it washed, so I guess it was ok.
The car is mechanically sound, except that on the first night, I discovered that the right headlight did not work. I called Ahmad, who was very nice about it but didn't give me many options except to return it and book a reservation with another car owner. I decided that I didn't want to incur the extra money and time, so I wound up driving at night with my high beams on. I don't know if it was my most judicious decision, but there it is.
One problem with places like SFO is that there is a parking lot where the car is delivered. This causes some degree of confusion, since the owner can place blame squarely on the Turo people, and the Turo people can put blame squarely on the owner. The Turo people said that it was the owner's responsibility to deliver a clean car. The owner said that it was Turo's responsibility to check the headlights. That sort of thing.
All in all, I was happy with the car, after getting over the fact that it was pretty dirty and dinged up. I do think that more attention could be given to presenting a cleaner car with functional lights. Also someone should look at the hood since the left side looks like it's eventually going to pop up.
