2008 MINI CooperMINI CONVERTIBLE -- PICK UP & DROP OFF FROM LAX15561
The car itself was (mostly) great. Communication with Gonzalo was not. On day one, I reached out to Gonzalo because the auxilliary input in the car was not working. There were two cables in the glove compartment, both of which didn't work. I also went and bought a brand new one from Staples, and that didn't work either. I first called Turo, who told me I needed to work it out directly with the seller, and that he probably would give me some sort of reimbursement for my trouble. When I messaged Gonzalo, he initially responded, saying that the audio "was working fine" earlier in the week. I told him that it wasn't working now, I needed him to find a solution, because working aux was promised in the description, and I was driving a LONG way (I really hate the radio). From that moment, he went radio silent. I sent him several messages, and he never responded to a single one... for the ENTIRE trip. The level of unprofessionalism is something you'd never expect from a service like AirBnB (can you imagine your host going radio silent when there was a problem?). It surprises me that Turo accepts this kind of behavior. Would not recommend renting from Gonzalo. I should also note that the passenger's seat airbag does not seem to be working. Minor details.
Gonzalo was excellent, communicating really clearly and offering plenty of flexibility and trust from start to finish. Love the car too, such a fun way to get around LA and enjoy the perfect weather. Would definitely recommend hiring this or any of Gonzalo's other cars!
This mini was a joy to vroom around in! My friend and I felt very VIP with the top down cruising around LA, and with the top up, it was a nice respite from the heat in Palm Springs. It was comfortable enough to fit a friend in the back and also aptly carted our luggage from place to place. The aux cord doesn't play your music quite as loudly as you might expect, but the radio did us right. Gonzalo made pick up and drop off incredibly easy and convenient!
Gonzalo was very quick to respond and extremely understanding regarding pickup/drop off location changes. Car was fun to drive and in good condition, with the exception of the trunk handle not functioning well and finding the release button. I would definitely rent from Gonzalo again!
loved this car!!!! we spent 4 days driving through L.A. with it and couldn't have asked for a better car!
Gonzalo was always available to answer any question and check in and check out was very easy and simple.
Gonzalo was always quick to reply with answers and worked with us on the car drop off and pick up. We couldn't have asked for more :) The mini itself was wonderful as well! Heated leather seats, simple push button top up and down function, ridiculously amazing gas mileage, and the ability to switch the car from automatic to manual, were some of our favorite features.
Gonzalo was wonderful to work with - flexible about about pick-up/drop-off times/dates, thoughtful about explaining the features of the car, and very professional. The Mini was exactly as pictured and so fun to drive - we spent a beautiful day driving up the coast and renting this great car made it even more memorable! Thanks, Gonzalo!!
I'm giving this review 5 stars because everything went smoothly. We arrived at the airport, called Turo, and they had an Uber pick us up to bring us to the Turo location. The car was there already even though we arrived earlier than expected, and it was clean inside and out. Had no problems communicating with Gonzalo before arriving in L.A.; he was very friendly. When we needed to return the car to Turo after midnight, we didn't realize they'd be closed, so we didn't know what to do. We contacted Gonzalo and were able to drop the car off to him so that we wouldn't miss our early morning flight. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely use Turo and Gonzalo's cars again.
This car was perfect for our trip. My husband and I used it for a week while on vacation to LA. We loved how compact it was in-we had no problem finding parking anywhere in LA with it. During this sunny beautify California weather, a convertible is the way to go.
