Toyota Tacoma 2014
Most times You will get what you pay for in a rental car. I use to always recommend sticking to the majors including Hertz, Avis, National, Enterprise, etc. however since I tried Turo I have been recommending it to anyone who asks. I just rented a Toyota Tacoma from Surja in San Jose CA for less then I could with any of the regular rental car companies. Everyone I have rented from has been very friendly and easy to deal with no weirdos or scams. Surja is no different but I have to give him a five star ratting as he went the extra mile. Surja is not only a great guy and easy to deal with, He is professional friendly, and fast. Surja had the truck waiting for me when I arrived no lines no waiting nothing. The Truck is a newer truck and ran perfect I had no concerns on my trip regarding the truck rental. I really liked Suraja he is a great testament to what it’s like to rent from Turo and he just like you or me not a paid employee just being nice because he has to be. His truck was clean well maintained full of gas so I didn’t have to do a thing but show up. Surja lets you rent immediately which is particularly amazing and helpful. I also really appreciated Surja being there when I picked up the truck on time and answering all my questions. The last thing you want is to not know what’s going on when your renting someone else’s car. I'm speculating from my own experience that you if you rented a comparable truck here in the Silicon Valley for a few days you would pay around $200/with all fees, not including insurance. If you're buying insurance/waivers, that could double the price. Then you have to wait in lines try to negotiate a better car then the one they try to pass off as the car you wanted. If the person is nice you are lucky often I feel I’m lucky if I make it out the door with a rental I like. Turo is so different it’s easy quick convenient and so much cheaper. The best part is you can try different cars you get what you want and you meet pretty cool people in the process. If your in the San Jose area give it a try and look for Suaja. His cars are great and he is so easy to deal with.

Volkswagen Jetta 2010
Hardik was the ultimate in helping us get on our way in Mountain View/San Jose. From meeting me at the train station to driving us back to our accommodation at the end of the trip, he was incredibly helpful, generous, kind and entertaining to boot! His wife also whipped me up a little care package when she discovered I was 6 mths pregnant :-) An incredibly thoughtful gesture. He told us all about his gorgeous classic Volkswagens, and was just fun, easy-going and overall a great Turo experience. The car was spotlessly clean, ran perfectly and was full of gas when we picked it up. Hardik had even included a roadside and first-aid kit, multiple cables for devices, charging connectors, and a couple of mapbooks. Thanks again Hardik & Usha for your wonderful welcome to the Bay area! We'd be happy to rent with you again next time we're back in the area.

BMW M3 2008
First of all, Mohamad is an extremely nice guy. There was a slight issue with another car I was supposed to rent but Mohamad ended up offering me this awesome car with no extra charge! I had such a blast driving this car and got lucky with the weather in San Jose so driving down with the top down made it even more fun. The car was great but what made renting it amazing was Mohamad. I highly recommend renting any car from Mohamad!

Honda Accord 2008
Huan’s honda accord was a sweet ride, i totally loved the sleek look of the car. Went to San Francisco from San Jose and the entire ride was smooth. Car was very gas efficient and although this car looks smaller compared to the other sedans and trucks seen on the road, it definitely packs a punch and has a strong engine. As for the interior, the car is nicely kept by Huan and i appreciated the cleanliness of the car and the little fresh scent it had. Overall this guy is a super host. Easy to get in touch with and understanding. Looking to hopefully repeat in the near future.

Santo was very professional and accommodating. My family and I needed a nice family size car to get around the San Jose area for a weekend and this was the perfect ride! Had no issues with getting the car and Santo was very punctual with responses. Very understanding and kind. Would definitely reach out to him again in the future! Thank you so much!

Long was awesome he met us at baggage claim and we got to take the car from there. Very accommodating. He also let us park at the airport upon our departure in San Jose.
Christyl N. - April 24, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
The perfect car for a weekend getaway! I changed the pickup and drop off times a couple times because my flights kept changing and they were very flexible and super fast at responding. The convertible is the perfect car for a sunny day in the bay! Get the extra miles if you plan on driving to SF tho, it’s over 100 miles to just drive to and from SF from San Jose. Definitely using Nabil and Ramsey again when renting in the bay.

Toyota Sienna 2005
I discovered Turo accidentally while searching through the big named car rentals - Hertz, Enterprise, etc. we needed a 7 seater, AWD, with ski racks for a Tahoe trip. None of the big names had what I needed, and if they did have something close, it would cost an arm and a leg. So I searched through Turo and found this Sienna, for an affordable price, and it had EVERYTHING I needed for our trip. Vincent was very prompt in responding. The vehicle was to be picked up deep in San Jose, but I live in San Mateo. It would've been a bit of a drive to pick up the car. Vincent was accommodating and brought the car to Sunnyvale, which was much closer. He was prompt on the schedule, gave us a brief rundown on how the car works, and very pleasant to work with. The car was clean, and in great shape for an older model. We rode comfortably to and from the Sierra's. The only problem we had was the sliding doors were frozen shut our last day in the Sierras. But with minivans, I'm sure that would be the case if left outdoors in the snow overnight. We plan on returning to the snow next month and will be contacting Vincent again soon.

Matt M. - June 23, 2018
Toyota Prius 2012
DAC HUAN’S Toyota Prius was such a gas saver on my 8 hour drive! It was clean upon pick up & had a full tank of gas. For a Prius it actually had plenty of power to get around the slower cars on the long stretches of highway. The AC was very cold even during the 95 degree weather. The car was great to rent and DAC was great to rent from!
Alex I. - June 7, 2018
Toyota Yaris 2015
Sachin was very helpful with the rental of his 2015 Toyota Yaris. The whole process went very smoothly. I highly recommend using his car rental service. 5 stars rating service in my opinion.
Phillip T. - June 1, 2018
Porsche Macan 2018
This was my first time renting on turo and now I can not even fathom why someone would choose a regular rental company over this. Matt made my experience absolutely seamless and so simple. He was very friendly, helpful, and professional. The car was flawless... And so much fun. I've rented way more boring cars from Budget, Hertz, etc. for more per day than I paid for this beautiful Porsche. Luso has like 100 cars and they are all really nice, and in wonderful condition. Definitely want to rent from them again! That you Matt for the incredible car, the helpful tips, and impeccable customer service!
Christian F. - May 31, 2018

Chevrolet Corvette 2016
Loved the car so much I had to rent it for a second day. Pick-up, drop off, initial inquiry were all handled in a very expeditious manner, thanks Nick, What can you say about the car?? Gorgeous... very responsive-- you want to avoid the right lane rider that's blocking your entrance to get on the highway no prob... need to get around prob.... car was unbelievably fast in a hiccup.. pressing the gas hearing at 60 to get around folks that hog the far left lane no prob... exhaust sounds gnarly even that initial pedal press at 60..... loved ti, loved it.. Thanks again Nick I think I'll make up some special occasions just to rent the car again.

Toyota Sienna 2011
Our family of 8 loved Quang’s mini van! We are hesitant that we can all fit plus our stuff for our Tahoe trip but no problem! Quang made it happen! He even set it up for me - 3 rows at the back plus the extra seat right in the middle. Quang is super cool and very accomodating. He is quick to respond if you have questions. The van is clean with chargers for your cp’s, also equipped with snow tires, plus front and rear cameras for added safety. I dont know how he takes care of his cars but i wanted to learn his tricks! The car still looks new!!! I highly recommend Quang for your car rental needs, actually i will book again after 1 week :-)

Ramsey made my first Turo experience excellent. He made sure I was satisfied with the car he rented to me despite the fact that the initial car I asked for was unfortunately out of order. The communication was quick and on point. The car was fabulous. Super punctual. The service, 5 stars out of 5. I would gladly rent a car with him again.
Naomi P. - March 28, 2018

Toyota Sienna 2006
Phal's car is very well maintained and exceptionally clean. We had our road trip to SF and Tahoe and the built-in video system kept our children entertained. Phal is always available if needed and he was flexible when we needed to shorten our trip. We will definitely rent the car from Phal again when we visit San Jose next year.

Thank you so much. The process was so smooth and convenient. Way better than an actual car rental place. Very punctual with a quick response & ensured me that I was going to have the car rental (due to bad previous experiences).
Izaiah L. - June 26, 2017
Toyota Sienna 2007
Tim was amazing. I was really impressed how down to earth he was but also super professional. I was kinda worried about renting from Turo (always rented from rental car companies), but I think after this experience, i feel more comfortable. Tim made using this service really simple and easy. Another factor that I was worried at first was the limited reviews that I was able to read about Tim and his quality of service. But i'm glad that I rented from him. The price was reasonable and the car was better than I had expected. I would most definitely rent from Tim again if I need to rent a car in the future
Terry Y. - May 14, 2017
Honda Accord 2013
Chris was very easy to communicate with. The car was clean when we got it. It came with a full tank of gas. The features on the car were also cool. It was a very comfortable car for the 5 hour drive we had from San Jose to LA. Would definitely rent it again!

Omid was fantastic and there are not enough good things to say about him. I was able to pick the minivan at my convenience and drop at my convenience. Omid even let me park my car at his place. Car was clean, had chargers, water (thank you Omid) drove well and spacious. Communication was fantastic and Omid got back to me immediately and thus I was able to drop off the car earlier than anticipated. I am looking forward to using Omid’s car in the future and have decided would rent from him whenever I can

Honda Odyssey 2013
Santo’s Odyssey is really nice. It’s so well kept, its hard to believe its a 2013. It could pass for a much newer minivan . His minivan drives just like a car and is well equipped with options and features that made the trip that much more comfortable and enjoyable. Santo seems like a nice, straight up guy that I would definitely rent his minivan from again!

Truck and was very easy to pick up and return. Will rent again.
Jason L. - June 4, 2018
Nissan GT-R 2014
Rented the GTR. Super easy and flexible pick up and drop off. The GTR is as nutty as a car with 800+ HP should be and was a ton of fun. It’s heavy and planted in the turns and takes off like a space ship. Makes all the right sounds that a big turbo car should. It has adaptive exhaust which personally I preferred in closed valve mode so I could hear the engine. About the only downside was that it guzzles gas at an impressive rate. You only get about 100 miles per tank if you are off the freeway so pay attention to where you’re going and plan accordingly for those E85 stations because the power is totally worth it!!! Would highly recommend the car. It’s quite an experience. I may very well rent it again at some point because it just puts a smile on your face.
Alec S. - June 4, 2018
