This was our first time using Turo, and by far a positive experience. The location for pick up/drop off is conveniently located in a trendy area, where we often visited throughout the duration of our trip. Leonard was very responsive and courteous. The Honda ran perfectly, with no issues encountered...and gas mileage was excellent!
Leonard was super responsive. He also just added a keybox to the car, so pick up and drop off logistics are super simple. The car is clean, super fuel efficient (hybrid), and has a convenient reserved parking spot a few blocks from 24th St BART. Definitely a good rental experience.
Easiest first trip with Turo I could have hoped for- unlock and lock from your phone, convenient parking and a straight forward driving experience. Car is great and I plan on using it again in the future!
Good trip except for picking up and dropping off and this was not the fault of the owner. Did not get the correct text to start the trip but was able to finally
get on the road. The parking space is worth a million dollars.
"Happy Honda" is very convenient to rent and has its own parking spot in the Mission which is really nice if you leave in the neighborhood: you can park back the car at its spot while you don't need it!
Great car, easy to access, easy to drive - overall great experience!
(side note: the previous renter received a parking ticket that was on the windshield and the gas tank was a little less than half way full when I picked up the car: I put the ticket in the center compartment)
The car worked fine and was exactly where it said it would be. There's a general dustiness in the car and I saw a partially eaten bag of m&m's in the passenger side. Tisk tisk, renters. It would be nice to have a few small bags to throw trash into. I left a box of tissues in the car for future riders.
Awesome car and awesome mileage, easy to pick and I am really surprised by how well it drives considering it's a Civic. Easy to rent and pickup.
I've rented this car a few times and wish it was cleaner. It's just a general trend I've noticed that Turo cars aren't clean. I'm not sure why since the other peer-to-peer and b2c car rental service cars all are impeccably clean.
The car was great and had great gas mileage. My only issue was that the gas tank was not full when I picked up the car, which made it difficult to only replace the gas we used. In the future that should probably be checked, as I ended up paying for more gas than we actually used.
The dedicated parking spot and instant reservation were really convenient. The car was great for my trip to Muir Woods and the Sonoma Valley. Fun to drive but practical and a gas sipper. Great first experience with Turo.
Leonard's car proved to be a great asset for our needs. The car ran smoothly, was easy to find (good description of location) and was easy to access. I would recommend Happy Honda to other Turo members.
Great ride but extremely dirty car, mostly on the outside, but it was a bit more difficult to drive as I couldn't see clearly out the windows and to the mirrors - particularly on a sunny day driving into the morning sun. Parking, although not the owners fault, was very difficult because someone was illegally parked in a clearly reserved space and it was extremely difficult to find parking in this neighborhood on a weekend day.

Amazing on gas mileage! This car is always a top choice for me. Rides smooth, is clean, and again AMAZING gas mileage--- it's a hybrid.
Needs new windshield wipers! The drive was very uncomfortable in the rain, as the current wipers smear water over the windshield versus removing it, rendering visibility worse than without them. Otherwise, a great car.
This was my first experience picking up a car from a designated Turo spot. That was easy and good to know. Car was fine.

I have rented this car several times now, including twice in the past week. As other reviewers have mentioned, there was some more extreme damage on the outside of the car that is not marked on the damage card (I called it in on my first rental).
More so, I am not sure if anyone was notified when a previous renter had the tire pop and put the spare on, but I was not notified about this before picking it up and drove 50 miles on the freeway at high speeds before noticing it- eek! Driving home at the spare tire recommended 50 mph was an inconvenience and a bit scary. I am hoping in the future steps will be taken to ensure this doesn't happen to other renters.
Otherwise I have had good experiences with Turo and this car. The dedicated parking spot and low gas use (hybrid) are major bonuses.
Overall, a good ride. Radio functioning (albeit stereo lacks AUX input to play an iPod). Only other drawbacks were that the spare tire was on the car, there was some fairly major unreported cosmetic damage, and some junk in the trunk. The price and location, however, were right, and it got us where we wanted to go without a hitch.
Car was great but car was in a different location not in designated parking. The car looked like it been in a accident on the side was damage to car its a nice car wish renters would take care of it after use. Anywho very gas efficient but had the tire pop on me kind of scary first time thing but its ok

The car was parked a good four blocks away from its dedicated RR off-street parking space in the Mission; not sure why. It was a little dusty and a previous driver had left some trash inside, but the car drove well for my errands around the City. Everything worked but I never figured out the radio.
Radio doesn't work!?! OR has a code? Please provide the code to us friendly drivers!
Car was easy to pick up, and has great gas mileage.. but there was only 1/4 tank when I picked it up.
It was very frustrating to return to the parking lot, and the designated spot was taken! It was late at night, please provide a 2nd alternative if no one is reachable and the spot is taken.
Radio not working on a hybrid!!! AHHHH!!! THE HUMANITY!!! The car is so quiet you slip into random thoughts in parts of your mind that you wouldn't be able to access without a few days in solitary confinement. It's not the prettiest crayon in the box, but it's a good deal. Lasts a while, pretty cheap. All around nice car, and the dedicated parking is nice.
A great little hybrid, easy to drive and get around town. Only bummer was that the gas tank was on empty and the fuel light illuminated when I picked it up ... um ... 1/4 tank rule?? At least it's a hybrid, so the battery could get me to the gas station. *sigh*
Great car. Clean, has a designated parking spot. Had some trouble with the text messaging unlocking mechanism, but called the office and they were able to unlock it quickly so I'm not sure that has anything to do with the actual car. Hybrid, gets great mileage, well-maintained.
The car had some cosmetic damage on the passenger side rear door which wasn't listed on the description; I took a picture and called it in. The car is on an off-street lot marked with the Turo symbol and is easy to find. It was reasonably clean, but it's definitely got a bit of wear. The engine light was on, too, which I reported as well. All in all it did the trick of getting me from point A to point B.
Did great even in a pouring rainstorm! and the easy-to-locate, dedicated parking was a huge plus. Was nice and clean with a cleaning kit in the back making it easy to return it in the same condition. Love it.
One of my "goto" cars in the ReRi community. Dedicated parking, rides nice. EXCEPT this time the car was filthy!!! I can't blame the owner as there has to be some accountability to the borrowers! Come on folks, honestly, take the 5 minutes to go thru the car. Heck the owner of Happy Honda even provides a kit in the trunk with supplies. It's not your car, which is reason even more to take care of it! Happy Honda got picked up with a frown, but dropped off singing and dancing in the rain last night!
Great car. Handles wonderfully. My first Turo rental experience. I left something in the car and both owner and Turo were understanding and opened it up hours later so I could pick it up. Couldn't have asked for a better first experience. Thanks!!
i luv luv luv the happy honda but please people wash your cars i was taking my son to take pics and he leaned against the car and was filthy so please keep the outside of the car clean i love this car to death and so does my son
This car was okay. I like the other Honda next to this one better (that one drives like a dream!) While driving this one I felt like the alignment was really off, and I had to correct the steering a lot. Love the parking location, though!
