Is there an age limit to rent this car?
Unfortunately there is. Turo imposes a 30-year-old age limit for this car (see https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204496224-Are-there-age-restrictions-for-certain-vehicles- )
Can I have additional drivers?
Absolutely! There is no charge for additional drivers, but additional drivers must complete the registration and approval process with Turo, and be noted in the rental notes for the car. More info here: https://support.turo.com/hc/en-us/articles/203990880-Are-my-passengers-allowed-to-drive-How-do-I-add-a-driver-
Can I smoke or eat in the car?
No. I try to preserve the luxury for others, and that includes keeping the car smelling fresh. Smoking or eating in the car is not allowed.
How far can I drive with a full battery?
Your range depends upon how you drive (heavy foot?), the terrain (lots of hills, head wind, etc.), the outside temperature (super cold or hot weather gives shorter range), just like a gasoline or diesel-powered car. The EPA-rated range for this car is 240 miles, but your range may vary from that.
Don't forget that you can charge this car for FREE at all Tesla Superchargers. What other car can you fill up for free?
2015 Tesla Model SeMotion Model S15558
5 stars all the way. It was a pleasure renting from Joe. He was very flexible and met me at a metro station near his house, which made it easy for me in terms of picking up the car. Two days later, I returned the car to his house and he kindly dropped me off at the metro stop. In terms of the Tesla Model S, it is an amazing car and I'm really grateful that Joe rented it to me, allowing me to finally experience first-hand the joy of driving an electric car. Recharging the car was free, easy and fast (30 minutes) at the Supercharger in Laurel, MD. It was interesting to try out Auto Pilot, and I really enjoyed (and took full advantage of) the free streaming of radio stations from around the world through Tune In Radio. I would rent from Joe again in a heartbeat.
Renting from Joe was a perfect experience. Fantastic car, fantastic communication, fantastic person. From the moment I hit submit on the rental until the 20 minute conversation after I turned the car in at the end of the rental, Joe's communication was superb, His vehicles (this was my second rental with Joe) are showroom quality clean, and are a blast to drive. Do not hesitate to rent with Joe - it was the best rental experience I have ever had.
Joe has an amazing car - the Model S was really fun to drive! I have to admit I never worked up the nerve to use the autopilot, but I did let it parallel park itself a couple of times, which was admittedly pretty cool. The torque and immediate transfer of power to the drive wheels is not to be underestimated, and the interactive cruise control was a much bigger convenience than I expected. Instead of being confusing or an encumbrance, the startling volume of technology at your fingertips is surprisingly intuitive and made our road trip to Charlottesville a lot of fun! Joe was a pleasure to work with and worked with us when a late-trip charge-time calculation error screwed up our return appointment at the airport. Thanks again, Joe, for an amazing trip! Looking forward to doing it again next time we're in D.C.
I want to thank Joe for allowing me to rent his amazing Tesla!
I reached out to Joe because I was looking for a nice vehicle to drive my son to his Senior Prom. Joe responded back within minutes and told me that he was going to be out of town around the time I needed to rent the vehicle.
I was a little down about it but it was nothing I could do. Then he sent me another message saying he might can work something out and that he did!
Joe still went on his trip out of town, so unfortunately I didn't get a chance to meet him but I did get to meet his amazing neighbor Tim! Tim was great, his instructions along with the instruction Joe his in the vehicle was easy to follow!
I had a question over the weekend and reached out to both Tim and Joe and both of them responded. Thanks Joe for responding even though you were on vacation.
Thanks for trusting me with your vehicle while you were out of town :-)
My 2nd time in this beautiful machine and was even better the 2nd time around! Joe as always was on point, communicates extremely well and makes sure everything is tip top. Can't recommend enough!! Check out his other cars too!!!
I could not have asked for a better experience renting from Joe. His Tesla is in great (like new) shape, and he took the time to review everything one needs to know about operating his car. After my flight got cancelled, and I got rerouted to a different airport, Joe had the patience to work with me on updating my reservation, and he could not have been more courteous during a frustrating time. Joe met us at arrivals and again at the departures lane, making for a very convenient experience. I would rent from Joe again without hesitation.
Had a perfect and seamless experience. Joe has a wealth of information about the car and pro-actively shares ideas and suggestions. The car was in perfect condition and was a delight to drive. Joe made me promise to use Tesla's auto-drive and it was a weird yet exciting experience to have the car drive by itself. Next time I'm looking for another exciting drive, I will not hesitate and book again.
I've rented the Tesla Model S before (elsewhere) and Joseph does the best prep and presentation I've seen. His car is equipped with laminated info sheets and with the charging adapters you'll need for longer roadtrips. I especially appreciate that Joseph was a little early for both dropoff and pickup, since I was running a little ahead of schedule. Also, I did put quite a bit of mileage on the car in the three days I had it but that was OK because of his generous daily mileage allowance. Communications responses were always very rapid, within minutes. If you're in the DC area (anywhere from IAD to BWI) I recommend renting from him!
Joe has set the bar high for customer service and satisfaction. I admit I had never heard of Turo before this rental and I was skeptical of working directly with the owners, but from the get-go Joe was more than amazing to work with and made me feel incredibly comfortable with the process.
My own personal issues brought immediate snags to the rental process (through my own personal fault) and Joe was with me every step of the way to provide assistance and resolve the issues in an expeditious manner.
We were new to Tesla and Joe provided excellent information on the car and brought us up to speed with how to best utilize the vehicle and it's features. He really went above and beyond to make sure we could get the most out of our rental. Joe really made the entire process as simple for us as could be and ensured a completely worry free experience.
If you have any questions on Tesla or Turo then Joe has provided information on it and made it convenient to access.
I am so glad that my first experience with Turo and Tesla were with Joe and I highly recommend Joe and his rentals to anybody!
Beware: you are absolutely going to want to purchase a Tesla after driving Joes rental around! The car is amazing and is simply so different then anything else that is out there. You absolutely have to give it a try.
One thing is clear, Joseph is by far the most challenging person to write a review for! Any words used to describe how amazing of a person Joseph is, will simply undermine how awesome he is. From the beginning, Joseph was warm, welcoming, and accommodating- going as far as boarding back home upon delivering the car to us. (We offered to drive him to his house being that it was cold outside but he would not let us, stating "it was out of our way and an inconvenience to us." ) Joseph made sure he arrived on time during the drop off and even detailed the car that morning. His hospitality is world class (think of going to a 5-star hotel and being in a penthouse suite type of service). Having rented the car for 5 days (we enjoyed the car so much that we extended our rental!), I can truly say that whenever I am in the area again, I will search for Joseph on Turo. Also, he took the time to explain the car in detail - he even had written guides in case we forgot! I felt at ease during the rental period, and felt like I was driving my own vehicle. What an exceptional experience!
This was the first time I had the opportunity to drive a Tesla and it was a fantastic adventure. I came back to Virginia from overseas to surprise my son for his birthday and wanted to rent a car that he would love and that is what happened. Joe was great to work with, he was able to bring and pick up the car from IAD which really helped me out. As others have said he spent the time to go over all the aspects of the car and was happy to answer any questions I had. I would definitely rent from Joe again in the future.
An amazing car offered up by an amazing guy! How many people are willing to rent out their $100,000 baby? Joseph's Tesla was ready on-time, spotlessly clean and fully charged! The car itself was a once in a lifetime experience. It is loaded with more technology than most people can imagine. Everybody was amazed by the Autopilot and the "Summon" feature (look it up). I could not have asked for a better experience. Allow some time for Joseph's in-depth explanation of how all the features work so you can get the full experience from this car. I'll be renting his 2017 Model X as soon as he takes delivery. Enjoy!
Joseph was a pleasure to deal with. The car is very high tech and he was always available to help trouble shoot any issues and answer any questions. The car was clean, beautiful and a lot of fun to drive. It took getting used to as far as the charging goes but other than that everything went great. I 100% recommend renting from Joseph.
Everything went perfect. The attention to details and the affability of Joseph is all you can ask when you get in this type of transaction. We definitely will be back to him.
The car is spectacular, super enjoyable, super clean. It was a blast for us, specially for my little daughter, who obviously got all the whistles faster and better than me.
To start this is my third time renting from Joe! With that being said, this Turo experience just keeps getting better! From start to finish, I must say this has to be #1 in my book when it comes to impeccable service provided, along with a truly fascinating vehicle! Thanks again Joe for the flawless Turo experience!!!!
Joseph's car is a dream! I have had the honor of renting a Teslsa before so I was a little more familiar with the vehicle but Joseph was an extremely helpful owner! No question left unanswered and instructions were available for anything that I may have encountered. Also, Joseph was just a pleasure to work with; It is always a plus to have an owner who is flexible, understanding, and approachable. I would recommend him to anyone and will be very happy to rent again!
As always, Joe has been a treat to deal with. This is my second time renting from him and I wish there were 10 stars I could give him. The car was immaculate, Joe was reachable at anytime I needed him and he was very flexible. If I was deploying soon, I would rent from him very soon but as soon as I return, I will use his services again. Thanks again Joe!
Joe made my rental experience a dream. From the day I sent my first message asking to rent, he was so helpful and communicative in tips and familiarity with this awesome Tesla that I was speechless. The vehicle was a dream to drive and the autopilot feature was the best especially when I was in traffic and wanted to use my phone. Please don't do this when not in autopilot folks. Please rent with confidence. Thanks again Joe and I just hope all my future rentals experiences goes as excellent as this one.
This car is a dream to drive. The car was clean and ready to go. All of the needs one would have for different charging sessions were met and an extension cord was included for plugging in at grand ma's house. If you are curious about the Tesla experience try this one.
Joe's car was immaculate. We enjoyed every bit of the experience and the service was top notch in every way. He accommodated us beyond expectations and we highly recommend his services. Thanks again Joe!
Fantastic trip to Vermont for a week in Joseph's Tesla. Joe is a great guy who gives you everything you need to know to enjoy this marvelous piece of engineering. It was a fantastic experience driving up to our cabin in Vermont - First Bend River Cabin (A Tesla Destination charger location). I highly recommend renting from Joe if you want to experience the thrill of driving a Tesla.
Joe really made it easy to use his car, which he has really taken good car of and looks just as nice as the photos that you see. I used it for a drive down to Richmond and the Autopilot feature made even a trip down I-95 a much less stressful event. The car has a lot of features and Joe took the time to explain how everything works.
He really wants more people to try driving electric vehicles and this is why his car is priced so well.
This car was great. I rented it for my wedding weekend, and it was super useful. We fully utilized the large trunk space, and transported all the groomsmen from place to place. Joe was very helpful and did a great job explaining all of the car's cool little features.
Joe was great to rent from and his Tesla was phenomenal! Will definitely be renting it again on our next trip to the US. Joe is exceptionally well organised and his communication with us was flawless. Thanks again, Joe! It was a pleasure to rent from you and we'll see you again next year! :)
The Tesla is perfect. Joe clearly takes care of it meticulously. He was so easy to coordinate with, and he took the time to explain everything about it so we were able to enjoy our rental experience as much as possible.
Had a great couple of days with Joe's Tesla. The Model S is an amazing vehicle which feels like it came from the future. Joe and Thomas provided a very professional service and the car was delivered in excellent condition. Autopilot really impressed and made driving a couple of hundred miles so much more relaxing and pleasurable. I've been looking for a Tesla to rent across the US for the last several months and Joe's listing is the best combination of price and miles included I have seen so far. Rent with confidence. Thanks for sharing Joe!
What else can I say. This Tesla was exceptional. I've always wanted to try/drive one and what better way than on a recent family visit trip back to the MD area. Joe's Tesla Model S is very clean and very well kept. I don't think there is enough space here to go on about the features - but they are all amazing and they all work fantastically (auto park, auto pilot, etc etc). At first, I was worried about charging. But, there is a great network of charging locations all around the Baltimore metro. The car has a built-in browser and 4G LTE connectivity, and Joe has pre-loaded bookmarks that display charging locations. The car comes with all necessary adapters to charge up at any EV location, or you can charge off of a standard 120V wall jack - this method is much slower but perfect to keep the car topped up after short errands. Joe also includes a fob that will grant access to one of the more popular charging networks - I forget the name off hand.
The car is wickedly smooth in acceleration. I left it in sport mode and was very pleased with the road feel. The car is so quiet! Even when the small electric motor that runs the AC compressor is on, it is so quiet. Even though this is the "slow" model (P70) - it is NO slouch. When you stomp on it, it will be up to 60+ in no time. Very impressive especially for a "people hauler" vs a sports car or coupe. Acceleration is available at pretty much any practical speed - making traffic merging very easy. But who cares about acceleration... the car overall was just a pleasure to drive even at a leisurely pace on a curvy country road, or even ambling around in busy downtown traffic - the car felt very solid and easily blocked out all the outside noises. Furthermore, I much enjoyed the "regenerative braking" feature - as soon as you let off the gas, the car slows and recaptures energy as it slows down. Some drivers may not like this effect and may opt to adjust the level of this feature or turn it off entirely.
I can't reiterate - the car is packed to the gills with cool tech features, and Joe - despite my late arrival - went through all the important details on the car's operation. Including seat adjustments - which there are more than your average luxury sedan. There was never a shortage of information. The car itself presents all of this tech in a very clean and orderly manner so as not to be overwhelmed. They put a lot of time into the vehicle interface - which for the most part is on a very large touch screen in the center console. No rows and rows of buttons here.
This was my first experience renting a vehicle with Turo and will not be my last. The added convenience of airport pickup-dropoff is in itself a major selling point. I HATE rental car shuttles. There are few things I hate more than having to wait late at night after a long flight for that stupid bus to arrive. Joe was right there at the airport and ready for my arrival - and to boot - the car was getting some charge time in via the airport's free EV charging terminals!
To wrap up, this was a great experience. If you are in town and get the opportunity - don't pass it up. These Tesla vehicles are very well engineered and I look forward to see how they do in the future.
It was a wonderful experience using turo and renting from Joe. I had a test drive of the model S two days earlier and rented the model S from Joe for two days. It was like in a dream, visiting DC, MD, VA without worrying about being lost or worrying about gas. Joe is a wonderful person and the whole experience was just 100% full pleasure. I had a blast! Two magical days. Thanks turo and thanks Joe.
Awesome vehicle and awesome owner. I loved this car and throughly enjoyed my trip. Joe was extremely helpful explaining all of the features and was a pleasure to work with. I would rent this car again in a heartbeat and will be referring a bunch of Tesla-curious friends to him.
If 6 stars was an option I would give Joe just that. Needless to say the car itself turns heads and Joe makes sure it is in immaculate condition upon delivery. He was clearly meant to work with people because is customer service is nothing short of "the Disney experience!" I have already made plans to rent again.
If I could give it 6 stars I would!! Awesome car and equally awesome owner! Joe was absolutely amazing and checked in to make sure everything was going well during the course of the trip. I was so pleased I've already booked another trip with him.
What can I say? After dropping the car off, I miss it already! A multi-day rental is a great way to view/test Tesla features before picking options for a Model 3. Autopilot is insane! (Be careful though, as this is Beta.) Joe did a great job getting me ready for my trip to Williamsburg, VA. Awesome experience in every way! The car is a real "head turner."
Thank you Joe for letting us rent your gorgeous Tesla. We have enjoyed it very much and definitely loved the auto pilot feature. Will rent from you again on my next DC trip:) thanks for being such a good communicator. Bella
This was my first time renting with Turo. I had a great experience renting Joe's Tesla Model S. The car is immaculate and a joy to drive. Joe kept in touch with me throughout the entire process to make sure everything was going well. The process of renting and returning was very simple and well coordinated.
Absolutely the best car on the planet and Joseph (the car owner) is equally just as amazing. Wonderful experience. Joseph takes his time to explain details about the car and makes sure you feel absolutely comfortable and relaxed before you leave with the car. A Truly great and out of this world experience.
Superb from start to finish, the best experience I've had on Turo thus far! This Tesla is practically brand new, immaculately clean, and rides like a Unicorn! Joe was very personable and took his time explaining in detail the operation of the vehicle and made sure I understood the specs, for a first time hybrid driver like myself. Thanks again Joe and I will be renting again sooner than later! A+++++
Absolutely stunning vehicle!!! Immaculate condition. Joe took the time to go over every feature of the vehicle to make sure there were no issues. He made himself readily available at any time if anything came up and was excellent in communications. The car itself was like a dream!! Highly highly recommend Joe and this car. Thank you!!!
Joe's Tesla is beautiful and he was very helpful throughout our entire Turo experience. He even met with us for 30 minutes before our reservation began to give us a rundown of how a Tesla works. We hope to rent Joe's Tesla again sometime soon.
Amazing Car! It's a computer on wheels that takes driving to a new level. Joseph (owner) gave a great introduction on how to use and charge the car. He was very helpful during my time with the car to answer all questions via text. Excellent experience.
An amazing trip in a phenomenal car! Joseph's tesla was in exceptional condition, and had many very interesting tech features. Joseph is a great guy who was super easy to work with. It was simply a great experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Can't wait to do it all again in the future!
