Honda Civic 2017
RENT THIS CAR!!! You will not be disappointed. Akely immediately responded to any of my email messages or texts that i sent, he was very accommodating. Pick up and drop off went effortlessly. I flew into the San Diego airport on Southwest Airlines and i sent Akely a text to let him know what Zone i was waiting at (Zone A) and he immediately picked me up there. For anyone who flies into San Diego knows that the rental car places are not in the airport. You have to walk past the baggage claim area, take an escalator to the bridge walkway, walk across the bridge walkway to the down escalator, then you have to cross the street to find a bus to take you to the rental car area. (On both pick up and drop off of a RENTAL car--- you waste an hour picking/dropping off a rental car). Akely will immediately pick and drop you off, so you have more time to enjoy San Diego. The Car: STUNNING! The car has every option available; including a functional Navigator and a sunroof!! The car is brand new ( still has the new car smell). The car looks sporty, better than the pictures, rides like a luxury car, and has heated leather seats! Akely went over all of the cars features with me; he showed me how to operate the sound system, navigation system, satellite radio, gas tank operation, phone charger, etc. I received lots of compliments on the car!! (I didn't want to give it back to Akely at drop Drop off: I sent Akely a text to let him know what time i would be at the airport to drop the car off. He was there already waiting for me. He sent me a text to let me know exactly where he was (Zone C). Drop off went EFFORTLESSLY!! (It was so easy!) Overall experience: AMAZING!!! Absolutely amazing!!! RENT THIS CAR!!! Enjoy San Diego!!!

BMW X3 2017
The BMW X3 was perfect for our family trip. Very clean, drove great, and had no issus with the vehicle. Luso's lot proximity to the San Diego airport was definitely a selling point too. We will most likely rent from Luso again when we make our way back out to San Diego!

Infiniti QX70 2017
I'm very happy that LUSO was able to accommodate my last minute booking for this business trip! I had rented through a traditional car rental company and they canceled on me last minute because they sold out, leaving me stuck at the airport an hour before a big meeting. I got onto Turo and found a much nicer, brand new Infinity QX70 on from LUSO for less than what I would have paid for an economy car! I had a few compliments driving it around San Diego and it was super speedy and comfortable. I was a bit worried about pick up and drop off, but the location really is right across the street from the terminal. After dropping off the car, it only took me 10 minutes to walk to the security gate. I'll be renting from LUSO every time I visit San Diego from now on.

Volkswagen Routan 2010
This was our first time using Turo, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Seth’s vehicle was absolutely amazing! It made our trip to San Diego even more special with having the convenience to drive around without needing uber and the room to fit the whole family along with all our luggage! Definitely recommend this to anybody in the San Diego area. Seth noticed our flight was coming in early and made the van available earlier.

Infiniti G Sedan 2013
Needed a rental for my 5 day stay at San Diego. There were some miscommunication in the beginning, but everything fell into place afterwards. The Infiniti G sedan ran perfectly. No complaints with the car. The only con I can mention is when they handed us the car with only 10miles of gas left in the tank to drive back to our destination. San Diego being a new city to me and not knowing where gas stations were, made it a little overwhelming. But besides that, I do recommend renting from them. The staff was very nice and understanding. Very easy going. This was my first time using Turo and they definitely made it easy.

Chevrolet Corvette 2018
Carlos and Matt are the classiest gentlemen on Turo. This was easily the best experience for our vacation in San Diego, pickup and return was a breeze, the car was EXACTLY how you see it in the pictures(they keep it in pristine condition), it's absolutely beautiful and RUMBLES when you drive it, just like a throaty 6.2L V-8 should! 10/10, A+++, we will be repeat customers for life, thank you guys for making our first vacation to San Diego one to never, ever be forgotten!

Dodge Journey 2013
Melissa was simply amazing! She made the process so easy for us. This is our first time using Turo and she definitely set the bar high for our future trips. She dropped off and picked up on time and made sure we were happy. Her car is clean and was able to tote us around all over San Diego while we visited all of our family. It fit the 5 of us perfectly and we even had room for two more people if we needed it. We would highly recommend Melissa and her ride to anyone looking to rent in San Diego. Thank you again!
Angela P. - January 30, 2018
Subaru Forester 2015
Great car for a week long trip around Southern California for surfing and Thanksgiving! Matt was an organized and communicative car host. Pick-up and drop-off from the San Diego airport was seamless. I’d definitely rent from Matt again next time I’m in San Diego.

Toyota RAV4 2010
Sam's RAV4 was the perfect vehicle for our stay in San Diego. After several previously booked Turo rentals were cancelled by their owners last minute, Sam had saved the day. Communication and instructions were clear and easy to follow. Will definitely rent again if we find ourselves visiting San Diego.
Nestor S. - May 25, 2017
Toyota Sienna 2007
We traveled to San Diego with our 10 month old and 2.5 year old and had a great trip. Nancie was great with meeting us curbside so that we could install car seats and load all of our stuff, along with also meeting us for our departure at the curb. Communication was also perfect. We will definitely rent from Nancie again for our family trips to San Diego!
Kandus J. - March 29, 2017
Chevrolet Corvette 2018
I have to say renting a normal car as opposed to renting a Target top before bed for a vacation in San Diego was well worth it. Absolutely fantastic car absolutely spotless from Carlos San Diego again I highly recommend Him!
Chuck B. - April 8, 2018
Tesla Model X 2016
This Model X MADE our trip. We came into San Diego with a small itinerary - which included an hour long ride from San Diego to Oceanside Pier. This car was a joy to drive (once we got used to the simplicity of driving a Tesla). We had a lot of fun in this car! Mike was super responsive even when we couldn't figure out simple things like locking the doors. 😉
Brandon C. - April 4, 2018
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Joe is the best, and his car is absolutely awesome. Driving around San Diego in a convertible Porsche should be on everyone’s bucket list. The wife and I only had one day to explore but it was so worth it. Joe made this Turo experience the best-next time I’m in San Diego I might just text him to see if he wants to hang out and watch some football—he’s that cool,
Chad T. - November 12, 2017
Saab 9-2X 2006
The SAAB was a great car to cruise around San Diego. Scott made the pick up and drop off very convenient. I would highly recommend Scott if you want to drive around San Diego with the top down at an affordable price.
Dustin T. - October 26, 2017
Toyota RAV4 2010
This was my first time using Turo and I couldn't have had a better experience. Sam is friendly , helpful and super accommodating. I had some last minute changes with my flight going into San Diego and he was very cooperative. The car itself was a dream, we started in Encinitas and went out to Salvation Mountain back to San Diego, to Palm Springs and all the way up to Malibu just meeting our 1,000 mile limit. The car is clean and well kept, he even supplies snacks and water, very thoughtful touches. Without this rental our trip wouldn't have been the same. Thanks Sam.
Maria C. - September 23, 2017
BMW 5 Series 2013
This was my first time using Turo rental service and I must say that the experience was by far the best experience renting a vehicle. Turo and Hoshang have my Business when I come back to visit California. Thank you for the great communication convenience and flexibility that was provided to me and my brother as we traveled to San Diego. If any person travels to the San Diego area or surrounding area Hoshang is the best person to contact Hoshang took care of me and he will do the same for you. Best, Josh

John made my first turo rental really easy. His a really cool guy and he even gave some places to check out in san diego! Next time we need a car in san diego we'll surely use his car.

Hyundai Sonata 2013
Car was beautiful, clean, and well-maintained. It made driving around San Diego a real pleasure. Rental went smoothly and Jean-Luc is a real gentleman. I give him my highest recommendation! I will look him up for future trips to San Diego.

Luso is the number one car rental dealer in San Diego!
Paul G. - January 17, 2018
Pontiac G6 2009
This was my first time using Turo, and thanks to my experience with Best Car For You, I'm now a huge fan and I've recommended Turo to anyone who will listen! Best Car4U is a dealership, so this had the feel of a professional car rental. We had to change both the pick-up and drop-off times, which they accommodated courteously. The driver picked us up seamlessly at SAN, and then we needed to drop him back off at the dealership 20 minutes away in El Cajon. The driver was a lot of fun and recommended the VERY inexpensive and fresh/authentic kabobs at the market across the street from Best Car4U-- It is worth the trip of dropping off the driver just to get the kabobs and fresh-baked naan! The car was very clean and just had some light scratches and dings on the body (barely noticeable). It's a classy car. Because I'd read the previous reviews, I knew the check engine light would be on, and not to worry about it. The only other issue was an ornery blinker (left-turn blinker doesn't like to stay on) and that was fine. A very well-maintained vehicle. I definitely recommend this car and owner, and I will definitely rent from them again the next time I'm in San Diego. I still can't believe I got such a nice car at this price!

Hyundai Veloster 2017
This was my first time using Turo and Mina has a system that is super convenient and super easy to rent through. She’ll be my go-to car rental when I’m in San Diego - 10 stars!

Car rental was super easy and the car was in great condition and drove well. Will be using Turo and Luso next time we’re in San Diego
Sumeet C. - June 19, 2018
GMC Terrain 2017
Our first Turo experience!!! We loved it! We will always try to use Turo in the future as opposed to corporate car rental companies. We embrace the sharing economy. The car was great. Clean as a whistle in every way. Very convenient to the airport. Carlos' communication was perfect. From the moment he instantly responded to our booking request to communicating when our plane landed. Meeting him was delightful. A competent respectful business owner with wonderful character. I cannot imagine a car rental experience better than the one we had with Carlos. Nothing could have gone better. I recommend any traveler to rent with Carlos, and I will darn sure rent with him again my next trip to San Diego. In fact, if we Turo in other places in the future, I am terribly afraid Carlos set the bar so high, that if we measure other vendors to his standard, we may be disappointed by comparison.

Scion tC 2012
Oscar made pick up and drop off at the airport easy. It's kind of like having a friend drop you off and pick you up and bring you a rental car to enjoy for less than any rental car agency. And you get a clean car that looks cool and has a wonderful stereo. I will rent this car again when in San Diego. :)
Shari M. - January 1, 2018
Ford Focus 2013
Scott made my first Turo experience great! He arrived at the airport on time to both drop off and pick up the car. The car itself was great too. Originally, I was very hesitant about using Turo to rent a car but because of Scott and his car, I was completely saisfied and would definitely rent a car through Turo again. Therefore, if you are looking for a car to rent in San Diego, I highly recommend Scott's Ford Focus!
Natalie J. - March 21, 2017
Saab 9-2X 2006
Scott was waiting to pick me up from SAN right as my flight arrived. The car itself is great! Most of my driving was on highways and the car keeps up with traffic no problem. The automatic folding roof is really easy to use. I averaged about 21 MPG over 450 miles of driving. When I come back to San Diego, I'll definitely look to rent Scott's Saab again.
Cameron A. - February 26, 2017
Toyota Tundra 2018
First time user of Turo and couldn't have had a more pleasant experience. Robert was great from the start with very quick responses. He was super flexible when we wanted to lengthen our rental and pick up the truck a day early. The truck itself was perfect, super clean with all the amenities. We will definitely be using the Turo app again and hopefully be able to rent Robert's truck again next time we are in the San Diego area.
Rob M. - July 16, 2018
Mitsubishi Mirage 2014
Not business but not leisure. We were there for the soccer academy showcase in San Diego. Everything was great, and when we come back next year, I will be happy to rent the car again. It was a good size, great fuel economy, and Rodolfo was easy to work with.

James M
Tesla Model X 2017
Thanks to Ratchai, my first experience with Turo was outstanding. Ratchai was great to deal with - excellent communication, friendly and helpful. He picked me and my family up at the airport. The Tesla X was in pristine condition. We proceeded to his place to drop him off and he went over all of the car’s features and sent us on our way. The car itself was an absolute joy to drive. It handled great, had plenty of room, was super comfortable and was so, so fast (I can’t overstate this - FAST). During the rental period I had a couple of minor questions and Ratchai was quick to respond. Finally, the return was as seamless as the pickup. I will definitely rent from Ratchai again when I return to San Diego. Communication, Cleanliness, Punctuality, Cool factor - this rental has it all. Thanks!

Rent this car, you won’t be disappointed. I’m a car guy and I really loved this Italian car it pulls so hard. And I really think that is very good on gas. (8/10). Really nice car for San Diego.
Julian P. - June 20, 2018

Mike is an absolutely pro and a genuinely good dude. The Model X was perfect and completely ruined me for other cars. If you're in San Diego and want to rent a Tesla, I think it'd be hard to find someone better than Mike.

Edith made the experience so easy. If you are ever coming to San Diego I highly encourage you to rent with her. The car was pristine and served us well. Communication was easy and quick. Can’t say enough good things, she made our trip a delight!

Couldn’t have imagined a better way to cruise San Diego. Highly recommended, easy pickup and drop off! Can’t wait to rent it again.
Kaleigh W. - May 11, 2018

The car is stunning!! Great power, handeling, sound system and looks. It has a ‘head turning’ V8 sound which I loved. Kyle was very cool and easy with the pick up and drop off. The car was super clean which was nice. Will definitely rent the car again when I visit San Diego. Thanks Kyle!

Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2018
This is my 2nd time using Turo and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. Much better than traditional rental car companies. Renting with Luso was simple. The directions were easy to follow. Will definitely use them again next time I’m in San Diego. The Alfa Romeo was awesome!
Hasan C. - February 22, 2018
Alfa Romeo Giulia 2017
Everything about this experience was awesome. The car was great, the pick up location couldn't have been more convenient from the airport, and their flexibility and communication was awesome as well. Don't think we will ever go back to the 'traditional' car rental when we are in San Diego.

He was amazing ! The car was beautiful and reliable. I was able to go from San Diego to San Jose. It was also very good on gas.

Toyota Camry 2012
I knew in advance that I would have to travel 1.5 miles from the airport to get the car, and that was not a problem for me. Uber is everywhere in San Diego so it was a fast drive from the airport to the car pickup location. The car was exactly where Mina said it would be. The car was fine, and I enjoyed having a sunroof for the week in sunny San Deigo. The car is excellent on gas. Thanks Mina!

Bryan made our rental very easy. Curbside drop-off to the curbside pickup, the experience was great. He also has plenty of chargers available for any phone type. The car itself handles great, flawless inside and out. I travel to San Diego occasionally and I now have reliable transportation. Thanks again, Bryan.
Michael D. - July 16, 2018

Toyota Corolla 2010
Doing business with Mina was very simple and convenient. Responses came within a couple of minutes. Everything is ready to go in the parking lot near the airport, so you can pick it up whenever ready. Not the sexiest car, but did its job and got me from LA to San Diego a couple of times with no trouble.
Fritz B. - July 10, 2018

Such a great car for a sunny San Diego getaway! Mo was great, going above and beyond to help us with a more convenient pick up and drop off at the last min. Great experience. Fantastic, fun car. I highly recommend renting from Mo!

Excellent car and Excellent owner! Would definitely recommend to anyone in the San Diego area!
Chameron C. - July 6, 2018
Tesla Model S 2017
It was a pleasure renting the 2017 Tesla Model S 75d from Zerbin. The vehicle arrived curbside at the airport baggage claim and I also met with Lewis who took the car back curbside at the Departures. The vehicle was clean both inside and out when I accepted it. The only "con" is if renting in San Diego, there are only 2 Supercharging stations with only 1 of them having access on the weekends. The 2nd one is downtown in parking lot that closes during the weekend. This is no fault of Zerbin however. I just wanted to note this in the review for future renters since we got downtown with pretty low juice left to find out it was closed. Thank goodness I made it back to the SC station in Sorrento Valley with 3% charge left.
Quoc P. - July 5, 2018

Had an awesome time in San Diego! Mo was great and picked us up from the airport which was great. The car was clean, and fun to drive, love the convertible!

Great experience renting through LUSO and great vehicle to use during a work trip in San Diego. Would recommend to anyone. Looking forward to the next time!

The BMW X2 was the perfect car for my quick trip in San Diego. Sporty and comfortable, and the service Nick provided couldn’t be beat. I highly recommend checking out the cars LUSO has available as their selection and price is great!
Matt C. - June 30, 2018

Jalal was wonderful and communicated with me professionally and respectfully. I would use his car again when I fly to San Diego.

Porsche Speedster 1600 Super 1957
Luso's Porsche is fantastic! It was extremely fun to drive around San Diego. I took it for a road trip along the coast. It was a big time head turner. The car is in perfect shape, it drives and runs great. Both the exterior and interior are in mint condition. This was the perfect rental experience!
Carlos A. B. - June 8, 2018
Porsche 911 2007
Steven was punctual and accurate on the car description so 5 stars for this, but the car deserves more than 5 stars. The 911 is fast but more importantly it is a LOT of fun to drive (even on the damaged southern Cali roads) so I will highly recommend the rental to improve your stay in San Diego.
Fabrice C. - June 4, 2018
Jeep Wrangler 2017
Everything was awesome! She was on time and SO easy to work with. We were skeptical of the whole Turo process, since it was our first time, but it turned out great! So much easier than renting from a company. Jacqueline’s Jeep is perfect and was the perfect vehicle for our family vacation in San Diego.
Whitney C. - June 3, 2018
Honda CR-V 2011
We had a great time in San Diego in Minas CRV! Pick up and drop off we’re super easy, car was clean, and Mina was great about communicating. Would highly recommend!

The car was great. This was our first rental through Turo. Being able to see the vehicle you're renting is pretty neat. We will use Luso next time we're traveling though San Diego. Thanks!
Seth M. - May 13, 2018
Toyota Camry 2015
Working with Carlos was great, he was very polite and courteous. The car was great, no issues, we had a great experience. Only thing I think would be a good improvement is if it says pickup at airport, then it will be at the actual airport, not a 10 min walk from the airport. It was our first time in San Diego I had no idea what was where so it was a bit tough to get to the car, but we found it and had a great time on it!
Pavel P. - May 10, 2018
Porsche Boxster 2015
Armando was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely communicative, easy to work with, and flexible. I am spoiled by the car and his care and attention. I’ll be renting this car from Armando every time I come back to San Diego. I highly recommend you do as well!
Nick A. - May 7, 2018

Will be renting with Toni every single time I come back to San Diego. The absolute best.

Jeremy’s ford couldn’t have been a better fit for my family. It was clean, had all the features we wanted, and Jeremy was extremely accommodating. We used the vehicle for 10 days and had zero complaints. We would use Jeremy on our next trip to San Diego.
Chris K. - May 1, 2018
Nissan Rogue 2017
First time using Turo, and it was an amazing experience with Temur! Right on time meeting us at the airport (he was actually there 15 minutes early), met us curbside, and off we went. Extremely friendly, car was clean, and he answered any questions we had in very short manner. We will definitely use him again as we frequent the San Diego area!
Chris Y. - April 28, 2018

The smoothest part of my vacation was the pick up and drop off. He even offered to drive us back to the airport. Amazing response time and communication. Will use this car again if I'm ever in San Diego.

Raquel is awesome! She picked us up and dropped us off curbside at San Diego airport, and was very flexible. Her Kia is a great car to drive: well-equipped, comfortable, quiet.

We were nervous to rent but we are SO glad we did! Luso made it so simple and easy. He was easy to get ahold of and answered all my questions very quickly. The car was incredible and very clean. Thank you for making this so easy!! We will rent from Luso any time we are in San Diego.

Classy operation - A+ service. Wouldn't rent a car from anyone else in the San Diego area.
Andrew D. - March 7, 2018
BMW i3 2016
HERE’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHARGING THE i3 BEFORE YOU RENT! First off I’d just like to note that if you are planning on renting the BMW i3 you will most likely receive it with half charge, this is completely fine though as it has a gas powered range extender which will kick in at 6% battery and charge your car on the go giving you an extra 30-40 miles of range. There are TONS of EV chargers scattered around San Diego as well so you will have more flexibility than you think. So, for charging methods you have 3 different options with drastically different results.(it would be best if you look at a photo of the i3s charging port connector before or while reading this so you know what im talking about) LEVEL 1 CHARGING: the adapter that is stored in the frunk (front trunk or hood) which plugs the 7 pin connector on the car directly into a 120v wall outlet (MUST BE 3 PIN OUTLET WITH GROUND!!) this is the slowest but most available method of charging and will fully charge the car in 13-16 hours (basically over night). LEVEL 2 CHARGING: a 240v EV charging station again using the 7 pin connector on the car. This will fully charge in 4-5 hours. LEVEL 3 CHARGING: a 480v DC Quickcharge station which uses the cars 7 pin connector PLUS the 2 pin connector just underneath. This is the absolute fastest charging option which is capable of charging the car to 80% in 20-30 minutes. Many people are unaware that you don’t need a special card to activate charging stations but can instead download the app associated with whatever company you’re trying to charge through and activate charging through the app. Here are my top 4 apps that I highly recommend for you to download and make accounts on to get started. (Note that I use an iPhone so if you’re running android these apps and app features may not even be available for you) 1. PlugShare Plugshare is the app you will use to find charging stations around you. It tells you The type of connector on each charging station, the company that is operating the charging station, and whether or not the charging station is currently occupied. (Also when you download the app the orange colored charging stations are DC Quickcharge stations just so you know) 2. Blink Blink is one of 3 main charging station companies that you will be using. You can make a guest account in the app and it will give you a code to type in to their charging stations to start charging. 3. ChargePoint ChargePoint is another company that provides charging stations and when you sign up in the app it adds the charge card to your apple wallet which you then scan at the station to activate charging. (basically the same as apple pay) 4. EVgo EVgo is one of the few that offer DC Quickcharging. You have to sign up for an account then find the charging station you are at and activate charging through the app. (It can be finicky sometimes and you need to make absolute sure that you’re activating the right charger) There are more apps out there to download but those are just the top 4 for me and if you ever run into a charging station that you don’t have an account for it will most likely be found on the app store. I hope this charging explanation has helped, I tried to keep it as simple as possible so it wasn’t too confusing! Overall my experience with LUSO was excellent and I would rent from them again. The BMW i3 is extremely fun to drive around in and is basically like an electric Go-Kart with a shell around it! I highly recommend you give it a go!

This was my first Turo rental. I was a little hesitant and didn't know what to expect. All I can say is: I will never use a commercial car rental agency again. Full stop. And when you travel to San Diego, look no further. Rodolfo is your guy. Personable, courteous, helpful, flexible all balled into one. I had a great experience.

Wow, this is the best rental we have ever had. A beautiful new Jeep delivered curb side at the airport. within 5 minutes of obtaining our bags at the airport carousel, we were in our rental and headed for our destination. It literally could not have been easier or more convenient. This will be the only way I rent a car going forward. There is no question that the next time we visit San Diego, we will rent from Carlos. I very nice young man that was easy to communicate with. Go Turo!

Cara is everything you’re looking for in a car owner. She’s kind, reliable, and very helpful with pick up and drop off. In addition, l believe this is the best deal on Turo! It is one of the safest, cleanest, and nicest cars you’ll drive. My trip was much more pleasant having a car like this one. l am certainly going to rent this Lexus on my next trip to San Diego. l strongly recommend renting this Lexus from Cara for anyone looking for a great vehicle to rent.
