2005 Toyota SiennaVincent and Hung's White Toyota AWD Sienna15517
Our regular car is an EV, so we occasionally need to get a gasoline powered car to drive our kids on field trips. And if we are renting a car anyway, we might as well get a minivan so that we can schlep 5 kids instead of three. I rented this for a field trip down to the coast, and it worked great. It had GPS, seats for 5 kids, and plenty of room for stuff.
The pickup location is right near the Sunnyvale Caltrain station (~ 5 min bike ride), so it was easy to pick up by myself instead of having my husband drive me to the pickup location. I just took my bike on the train, picked up and then put the bike in the back of the car.
Vincent and Hung were very responsive, on time for everything, and showed me all the little dings before I left.
I discovered Turo accidentally while searching through the big named car rentals - Hertz, Enterprise, etc. we needed a 7 seater, AWD, with ski racks for a Tahoe trip. None of the big names had what I needed, and if they did have something close, it would cost an arm and a leg. So I searched through Turo and found this Sienna, for an affordable price, and it had EVERYTHING I needed for our trip. Vincent was very prompt in responding. The vehicle was to be picked up deep in San Jose, but I live in San Mateo. It would've been a bit of a drive to pick up the car. Vincent was accommodating and brought the car to Sunnyvale, which was much closer. He was prompt on the schedule, gave us a brief rundown on how the car works, and very pleasant to work with. The car was clean, and in great shape for an older model. We rode comfortably to and from the Sierra's. The only problem we had was the sliding doors were frozen shut our last day in the Sierras. But with minivans, I'm sure that would be the case if left outdoors in the snow overnight. We plan on returning to the snow next month and will be contacting Vincent again soon.
The minivan was clean and elegant. It was important to have all wheel drive vehicle as we knew we would be driving during rainy periods. It gave us that added level of security in wet conditions. Vincent answered any and all questions promptly. I would rent this automobile again.
Vincent is super chilled. His Sienna was solid even though I had a flat. A few text messages later and it got resolved. Glad he was cool with it. Easy to work with and a great fast communicator. Thanks Vincent.
