2015 Tesla Model SGino's Tesla15515
Thanks for the great rental, Gino! We greatly enjoyed the Tesla. As a first-timer, I was a little nervous about the charging and operation - Gino's suggestion of watching YouTube videos was a good one. It still would've been great to have had a demo, but schedules conflicted. My only two gripes were that the car was in a different location than described (if it wasn't so freakin' cold that day, it wouldn't have been a big deal - that part isn't Gino's fault). Secondly, I couldn't find the charging adapter for the 110V AC outlet in the trunk, so we were stuck only using the superchargers (also not a huge deal, but a limitation for our trip). We'll definitely look to rent a Tesla from Gino again, and might even be in the market for a Tesla purchase!
Easily the best car rental experience I've ever had.
Our trip included a family of four, three days, and over 500 miles of city, highway, and rural driving.
Gino and his business partner David were gracious and friendly, and provided amazing support throughout, including pre-trip planning help, suggesting a great inn with charging capability at our destination, providing contact info so as to be reachable at all times, and providing a curbside airport drop-off upon the completion of our trip. David provided a thorough checkout in the car, and customized all its user-settings to our profiles. I can't say enough good things about their attentiveness to renter needs.
As for the Model S- it is Awesome! I don't see myself ever renting anything else, given the option. And if I lived in a more suitable place, I would seriously consider one as my next car after this rental experience. The handling and acceleration live up to all the claims and more. The interior is luxurious, ergonomic, and our was delivered spotlessly clean. We found the in-dash touch-screen controls, including auto-steer, easy to get used to. As a family of four with luggage we had ample room, and in fact could have handled a fifth person and more baggage quite comfortably.
The electric aspect is truly eye-opening. Don't look for a tail pipe- there isn't one. Don't worry about topping off the motor oil, coolant, or transmission fluid- there aren't any of those either. And forget about fuel expenses- we didn't spend a cent for electricity at any of the free Tesla charging stations we used. In fact, we charged in Lafayette, Indiana not far from a massive wind-turbine farm. I can't say for sure, but it's plausible that the power for our trip was renewably-sourced. As a bonus, it's an American-made car.
We felt very safe in the Model S, not only because it is solidly-built (in fact it doesn't even have a gas tank with flammable contents), but also because of its proximity sensors, great handling, and of course the ability to accelerate into traffic effortlessly.
The Tesla Model S is truly an amazing car, and Gino and David are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and helpful owners to rent from. We couldn't be more satisfied.
