Not only can you be environmentally conscious by renting rather than putting another car on the road, you can be even more environmentally conscious by renting a car that gets 45-51 MPG -- depending, of course, on how lead-footed you drive ;).

2008 Toyota PriusTouring Prius -- PICK UP & DROP OFF FROM LAX154.553
This car was not remotely depicted accurately in the listing. There was 360 degrees of body damage, some patched, and worn electrical tape over the bumper. Every seat, every floor mat was cover with black stains AND fresh crusty *something*. The outside of the car was so filthy I couldn't photograph the damage without going to a carwash- amazing. The worst was the awful smell. The owner didn't show up to face me with this monstrosity. Turo offered me a free carwash for my trouble- but I paid to rent a car, not to spend my days fixing other people's troubles. And who knows what kind of mechanical issues weren't immediately visible in the midst of all that neglect. This owner is shady.
Previous renter had the car and did not return it in time. It's unfortunate, but I'm disappointed with Virginia's communication. I was stranded at LAX for a couple hours, since she did not respond to my requests to cancel my trip. Turo did not respond to my calls as well. I ended up booking a car far higher than my budget. Virginia could have been more transparent and punctual communication
Virginia was easy to communicate with & organized all the logistics prior to my arrival. The Prius was in very good condition, clean & fuel efficient. The cost was also much cheaper for the week than any mainstream car rental companies. Wonderful trip, thanks so much! :)
This was an excellent experience. Virginia told me where the car would be, I did the inspection, then I returned the car at the end of the trip where I picked it up. No wasted time. No waiting. Very responsive with questions via text messages. I'd be happy to rent from Virginia again.
Easy on street pick up and drop off in Venice Beach.
Turo makes my wife nervous, because urban usage can take a toll on a car, but this Prius had already been christened many times and the interior was well worn, so no worry about leaving your mark.
The rear windshield wiper needs a new blade and the keyless entry device has a weak battery, so you need to be within 20 feet to have the lights flash - tough in a parking lot full of black Priuses ;-)
Virginia's Prius was wonderful! I loved driving it and it made my business trip much less stressful. Virginia was a great, quick communicator and I was even easily able to extend the rental for a day to accommodate my trip. Would definitely recommend!
