Amir's minivan was great! Car was clean and pick up and drop off were easy. It was exactly what we needed. We were filming a small video at a location that didn't allow parking and needed to shuttle people to and from the parking area. The power operated doors were a great feature that came in super helpful while loading and unloading passengers and their stuff. One of the doors was a bit more difficult to open and close, but not a big deal at all. The driver's side window would sometimes stick in the down position, but just took a couple times of pushing the button up to make it work again. Only happened a couple times in the week we had it. The van drove great and we would absolutely rent it again! Amir was wonderful and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!
The mini-van worked out great for us and got surprisingly decent fuel consumption. The van had a few quirks, what car doesn't, but nothing that was troublesome or affected the performance or the enjoyment of our trip. Would rent from Amir and this van again.
When we received the car, I was curious if the owner of the car has attempted to clean it or not. There were crumbs everywhere in the trunk and the there were some sticky part on the dashboard.
Regardless of its cleanness, the car ran perfectly fine for a long trip. The accelerator needs probably a little adjustment because unless I was wearing a pair of thin shoes, I couldn't even tell if I was hitting the accel or not.
In general, it was pretty satisfying car. It ran smoothly and the breaks worked fine.
After talking to Amir about couple issues we had (our fault) I could tell that Amir is definitely a good business man, but I wouldn't call him a nice or considerate person.
That being said, I personally wanted to use Turo to have a friendlier and more humane experience than a strict and stressing car rental companies but I ended up having the same experience. Although I understood completely of his position and his perspective, I still couldn't logically process his way of thinking.
Hopefully Turo won't become exactly like other car rental companies.
Theses stars above is a rating of the car itself. Not the owner or the company.
Amir was informative, trustworthy, & nice. The van handled perfectly through tight bends & didn't skip a beat. Perfect for a long haul trip to national parks or inter-city. Couldn't recommend Amir or his van more.
Amir and his wife have TURO down-to-a-T!!! Had a little issue with the driver side window...but another that, it was a very comfortable ride. Way above par for gas mileage, and it was nice having a DVD player (w/ headphones).
Amir and his wife were quick to communicate and were very kind. The van is a dream vehicle for road trips or larger groups. It's comfortable and clean and drives perfect. I would rent this van again and am now considering buying a minivan for myself.
