This is my personal car that I don't use often. It is a low mile and has been taken care of. This is a Jeep Rubicon Unlimited, with updated Boss navigation, cd, am,fm , USB port, 4×4, convertable or soft top. I am close to LAX so feel free to ask to be picked or dropped off on rentals of a week or more only. The wheels and tires have all been updated with the new and latest original from Jeep to maximize gas millege and driving performance.
There is a new BOSS Audio System installed. It gives GPS, USB Ports, CD, Am/Fm and much more.
The top is also brand new. Should you decide to drive the car in the convertable format, please use youtube to remove carefully and securely. The top, screws and its frame is expensive to fix if not opened or closed carefully.
I can ask for the top to be removed for your enjoyment for a fee by people who know how.
Please note that the rental of my car does not give permission for heavy 4 x 4 driving in sand or snow. Furthermore, if it is returned with sand or mud there will be a charge to put it back to the condition you picked it up.
Free delivery to LAX on rentals of 1 week or more Only.
Lax Drop off possible if told in advance and at available time
2008 Jeep Wranglered's Jeep15414
This was my first trip on the west coast and as a first time turo user, and what a dissatisfying trip it was. First off, the Horn of the vehicle did not work. I did not realize that until I attempted to beep the horn when a car cut me off in Los Angeles traffic. I contacted the owner who responded with "thank you i will have that checked out". The next day we hit a little bump in the road and the wheel begin to shake uncontrollably. I was able to Vere off to the side of the road unharmed( thank God) and come to a complete stop. I got out the car, checked the car out, thinking I had a flat, which was not the case. I also noticed how the car started to drift to the right side while making a clicking sound. I contacted the owner immediately stating that I felt extremely unsafe in his vehicle and I got NO reply after waiting 24 hours for a response. By that time, the car was due to be returned the next day. The roof of the jeep was also challenging to put back on the vehicle once removed. After I received no response from the owner, I contacted Turo ( once back in my hometown) , spoke with 7 customer service agents, then to a supervisor, who was finally able to hear my concerns and accommodate me for this reservation after 5 days of back and forth phone conversation. I should not have had to worry about my safety in a car that is deemed safe, reliable, and approved to drive while on vacation. This did not leave a great first impression while using turo. The description listed that the vehicle was available for pickup at LAX, however, it is actually available at a Jets car wash nearby, which I was advised to take an Uber, taxi, or act as if I was renting from the "advantage rental company" and walk across the street for pick up. I hope the owner has had the vehicle checked and maintenanced on since my trip two weeks ago.
The ONLY positives of this reservation was the owner did accommodate my return of the vehicle as I had an early flight to catch and allowed me to drop the vehicle off prior to jet car was opening hour at 7 am. Also, the car was clean and detailed outside and inside.
Doesn't actually drop off at LAX, but to a car wash nearby. Ed was helpful and responds quickly. Beautiful Jeep, rides ok. Had to take the top down on my own, one of the arms for the canvas is broken so it made it a little difficult. Very difficult to see out of the rear window with the cover on so if you have no intention on taking it off good luck. But over all lovely vehicle, will definitely use again for my next trip!
Was easy to get and drop off
Good communication from Ed
Negatives (can be fixed with some TLC):
The drivers seat was broken and leaned to one side.
The top was very worn and damaged and hard to take down.
The speedometer isn't accurate - we used GPS instead.
It had 30+ more miles than the listing shows.
Great experience; loved driving the beach roads with the top down on the Jeep with plenty of room for passengers. Ed was easy to deal with, nice guy and gave us a free car wash when we dropped the Jeep off.
Great trip. Great experience with the rental. Ed was very accomodating with communication. Only hiccup we had was the cab ride to get the vehicle. The address should read Inglewood, CA not Los Angeles, CA. My cab ride went from $15 to $30 real quick because we went to wrong location. Turo should update this...not sure this is Ed's fault.
Not a fan... I did not know where I was picking up the jeep we rented until 30 minutes before pick up time despite my emails from the night before. When I picked up the jeep it was in a shady area, people smoking pot next to us in a car at a car wash. The driver seat was wet, it smelled of mold, there were no papers (registration title etc) and within 15 minutes of driving the jeep red check lights started going off in the jeep. Right front tire kept having low air the entire trip and finally Ed responded and asked me if I wanted to bring it back to be fixed... I was in another county by this point. Finally, the day before the end of our trip the tire went flat, the jeep did not have a jack and after numerous calls emails and texts to Ed we had to deal with just filling up the tire which luckily held. I did not hear from Ed until 1130 the night before I had to drop the jeep off. THEN luckily we had a friend who ended up being available to drive with us back to the shady car wash because despite Ed mentioning he could pick up the vehicle at LAX, we had to drop it off at the car wash. Awful experience. Really awful communication .
Ed made renting his Jeep such a great experience. It was so easy to book and arrange the pickup and dropoff. The jeep is pretty much brand new and so fun to drive. He arranged pickup and had drop off arrangements set up for us and the Gentleman who dropped us off at the airport helped us with our luggage. Thank you so much, We had a blast !!!!
Highly Recommend. Very professional service and easy to get car and drop off. Never rent a car from a rental agency and avoid the hassle. Thanks for the great car and service!!!
