*** for anyone that read the only 3 negative reviews we ever got about the air conditioning not working properly, we just want to make sure that all our future renters know we have installed a brand-new AC system on our Volkswagen Jetta and it is working perfectly. Thank you! ***
Thanks for checking out my car. Mileage is about 60K, it is a great family car! We have kept our VW Jetta sportswagon in great condition. We just purchased a brand new battery and Michelin all-weather tires. It drives perfectly in all weather. It is very clean and roomy with plenty of trunk space.

I should have read reviews before booking. I was informed as I was about to leave work for the airport that the A.C. did not work on the car and was told I could cancel of it was a deal breaker, but having no time or other options I was stuck. Come to find out, they have known for weeks the a.c. did not work and waited until the last second so I would have no choice. With high 90's, it was far from pleasant. Other than that the car ran well, was clean and got good mileage.
Overall a good experience. The A/C did not work super well (which we were aware of) and the Uber coupon that was advertised had expired. Other than that, the car worked great and we had quick communication with Cris. I definitely would rent from her again.
Renting from Cris was disappointing due to listing inaccuracies about the car and an unwillingness to work with us on the issues we faced. Namely, the car is listed as having ac, and though it is an option on the dial it fails to properly work. We discussed the issue with Cris and he claimed it did work however at any temperature above 75 degrees the car is not able to properly cool at all. Vent temperature will slightly cool only momentarily but doesn't change cabin temperature. The rest of the time it blows at the outside temperature. Temperature in denver was above 90 all week and it doesn't cool at that temperature do expect to drive windows down. It was simply disappointing the owner wouldn't agree that there was an issue. We discussed it with Turo and they said to work it out with him which he would not do so. Separate from that, the Lyft/Uber ride to the car from the airport was $22 including the code he provided and he told us it would cost "nearly nothing." So if you rent and are traveling from the airport factor in the $45 round trip cost and 20 minute drive each way. If you plan to drive more then 650 miles, account for the listed $.75/mile. We hit a detour that added on 165 miles (pass closure) and that was extremely costly. The car worked as expected otherwise. It averaged about around 35mpg. Note it takes premium which is around $.60/gal
Had a great time driving this car for 5 days. Good pickup, as we did some driving outside of Denver. Cris was gracious with me in explaining things, since it was my first Turo experience. I would highly recommend renting from her.
Cris was very accomodating and answered back extremely quick for my last minute booking. I drove up to the mountains and her volkswagon was clean, reliable and gave me no problems. I would 100% book with her again.
Chris's VW Sport Wagon was a perfect car for our tour around the Denver area. Easy to drive, peppy, lots of room and comfortable; the car is in great shape. Don't be concerned that is is a little older. It has been well maintained! Chris's communications was perfect; good instructions, calm, and informative. The pickup location is convenient to and from the airport. Very positive Turo experience; thanks Chris!
I highly recommend booking with Cris and Luke! Both were very helpful, working with them was very simple, and also very economical! I had to request an extension several times and Cris always responded quickly and was very kind. Thank you both very much and I'll definitely book with you again if I ever need to!
Using Cris' car was easy and great! It really helped me get around while I was in Denver for job interviews. Cris was great at communicating when I reached out the night before to check in about the time, which was reassuring since it was the first time I have used the app. The car was in great shape and drove well . I would definitely recommend renting from Cris!
Cris and Luke made renting their VW Sportwagen easy and hassle free. Their price was below the Denver average and the condition of the car was better than any rental car I have ever used. The vehicle had zero issues during my trip up to Steamboat Springs, and the gas mileage was just shy of 34 mpg. Cris and Luke were also very reasonable with negotiating details outside of those listed on Turo. I would definitely rent from them again and highly recommend you do as well.
