Convertible was definitely a plus in sunny socal. Gonzalo's communication was speedy and accurate as well. The car has 40k more miles on it than when the listing pictures were taken so it drives like an older car.
The car was a great ride for the several days I had it and Gonzalo was great about letting me extend my trip an extra day. I did have an issue with the windows getting stuck while down and Gonzalo suggested it may be the fuses. I didn't get a chance to get these fixed but I kept the car in an indoor garage while I had it. Would definitely rent from Gonzalo again.
While I can't say it is a perfect car, I can say it is a perfect car for the price. Gonzalo was extremely accommodating, and recommended the vehicle for our trip. We couldn't be happier. It was our first try with Turo and were very happy with the results. We will use Turo again and will certainly use Gonzalo for any vehicles we may need in the LA area.
Gonzalo's car condition was good to very good. There were some annoying cosmetic issues, specifically the trunk handle and release button. The car ran well for the most part. A coil, one per cylinder, failed on the #1 cylinder causing the engine to run very rough. At the time we did not know the cause, only that we had a car that may not be reliable. Fortunately, Gonzalo's mechanic shop was in Venice. Eventually the mechanic came and made a repair. Unfortunately, it took me four hours to make that happen. Overall the car was good and drove well. My main issue is dealing with Turo and their flexibility given a mechanical failure. More later
The car ran well and was a fun way to see the City. Gonzalo was extremely communicative and accommodating, and was helpful in meeting my needs. The only serious drawback was that the left front blinker didn't work, which makes for unsafe driving. However, I'm sure that with Gonzalo being so attentive this problem will quickly be addressed.
AAAmazing! Gonzalo was incredibly responsive, and the car was so much fun to have during my visit in Cali. I would most definitely recommend this car to everyone visiting Cali. Great way to get around. Thanks Gonzalo!!!
This was my first time using Turo. It was a really good experience. I will definitely use it from now on anytime I need to rent a car. Gonzalo the owner of the car was great to work with and his convertible BMW was really fun driving around LA.
Gonzalo and Virginia were great communicators & punctual - picking us up and dropping us off right at the curb at the airport was a great convenience. Nice clean car, perfect for our trip and got pretty good mileage too. I would definitely recommend!
Gonzalo's car added a level of fun to my trip that I don't think I'd have gotten from a standard rental agency. It was fun to drive with the top down and I have a peeling forehead to prove it. He and his wife made short order of getting me from and to LAX and his place is easy to get back to. One comment - be aware that the pick up and return to LAX is $20 each way.
