Justin was easy to communicate with and his car did great in the snow(!), getting us to Tahoe and back safely. The brake rotor does need to be fixed, as the car shakes when pressing on the brake pedal. My leg got a little tired from that during the long drive, and it made the ride less comfortable for my passengers than it would have been otherwise. Justin warned me about the issue before the trip and said he is planning to fix it in the near future. I will rent the car again after the fix is made. It's the perfect vehicle for ski trips and reasonably priced.
This car is okay, but car's engine was suddenly stopped on the freeway when we got a traffic. It's not a safety for us because we had kids inside a car. One head light from a driver side did not working too. I think owner must be fixed this problem for the next time to let other travelers to rent this car again.
The cheapest 4WD SUV I could find. 3rd row seating is very convenient. Justin is very easy going and helpful. The only concern was the brake system, that I can feel shaking when trying to slow down, and it forced me to keep some distance from cars ahead, just to feel more comfortable.
* Seats 8, just what we needed.
* Car seems to be working great mechanically despite 195K miles.
* Car not given with full gas tank, which meant that towards the end of the rental period, whenever we filled up the gas, we kept agonizing over how much gas to add (because if we add too much and don't use enough, then we waste money on gas) and ended up going to the gas station more times than necessary.
Great service and great owner. Car was waiting for us, and Justin is super nice and easy to work with. No complaints about the service or car. Honda Pilot is the best vehicle, seats 8 and lots of power!
Justin's Honda Pilot was waiting for me with a full tank of gas when I arrived. It got my son and I to Mitchell Park in Palo Alto every day and ran fine even in the heat. It has lots of room for passengers and cargo.
Justin is amazing. No issues while dealing with rental from Justin. We rented 2003 Honda Pilot which ran 188K miles. Really Cool guy. He is always in contact with you when ever needed. I would give his customer service 5 stars.
This car seats 8 adults. Nice pick up. Gives around 19-20 mpg. It doesn't have slot for aux (for music listeners). Radio works though. The trunk space is very small. So 7 adults or more traveling long distance with luggage in this car is not practical. We were 6 and so we folded a seat and put our luggage (2 suitcases, 3 duffle bags) on it. This car has rustic old car smell (but that was expected being 13Yr old) That said I dont think this car might be completely safe to travel. We drove this car for 750 miles to and fro Long Beach. Few issues we observed with this car during our trip was rough braking system and strange sound underneath the car when taking turns and rough roads. I am sure he needs to take this car on service to check on these 2 issues. Brakes work good; but when you press them they are very rough (keeps bumping a little when you press them). The other issue is we heard concerning 'Thud' sounds underneath the car (I am assuming somewhere from axle) while taking turns, changing lane from complete stop, rough roads; Few times we were concerned if that was not a tire coming off! It happened atleast 15 times during our trip but at the end we drove safely. I have notified Justin by texting about it (he had no comments after that text) as a feedback so that he might fix it before next rental. If he has fixed it, then it might be very safe to rent this car.
Overall I would say I would rent from Justin again for sure given he being so nice and reasonable rates. He just has to fix this Honda Pilot if he wants to rent this car out.
Nice experience, great drive in the Pilot for the road trip with my family. Justin was very nice, especially when he approved my request to extend to one more day. I would definitely rent from him again as long as it stays under 45.
Justin was very responsive and airport pickup and drop-off went well. However, I would discourage renting his Pilot until the front rotors are either replaced or at least re-surfaced. There was a large vibration when braking and that was disconcerting during winding steep drives to Big Sur and Yosemite.
This vehicle was very reliable for our whole 10 day trip and was able to seat our family of 7 very comfortably. Justin was very accommodating when our travel plans went slightly off course and was flexible in making it easy for us to pick up his vehicle. Highly recommended for a large family or lots of gear!
