I get a ton of emails about how much insurance costs. Insurance is available from Turo. Turo Provides liability insurance in your rental fee but does offer additional coverage for an extra fee. This is between you and Turo and is handled at checkout. Please do not contact me with insurance questions. Contact Turo.
1) The City and County of Denver impose a tax of 7.25% on short-term car rentals. This tax rate will be added to your total at trip end and charged to you via the Turo reimbursement tool. This tool adds a 3% processing fee to any amounts charged. If you wish to avoid the 3% processing fee you may pay the owner directly. This applies to any rentals after 10/26/2016
2) The car is equipped with an eco stop/start function and the engine will turn off when the car is stopped. the engine will resume as soon as you lift your foot off the brake. This is normal operation for this vehicle. You can disable this feature by pressing the "A" button on the dash.
3) This is a turbocharged vehicle and requires premium gasoline. You must fill the car with premium or you could harm the engine.
Robert was very nice, and went out of his way to pick us up early when our plane arrived early. The car was easy to drive and handled well in the snow. The only improvement I would make is to have it deodorized because it smelled like someone had been smoking cigarettes in it.
An awesome set up with picking up the car and dropping it off near DEN Airport. This car did very well in the storm and white out conditions. Robert was very nice to work with. Would highly recommend and hope to work with again the next time I go to Denver!
I appreciated communicating with owner. He was accommodating as I asked to pick car at airport and dropped off downtown. It would have been 5/5 stars if vehicle had been washed in and out but overall good experience.
Great trip. Robert provided clear instructions on the local airport valet services. Easy to follow which was great given my late arrival and departure times car was in great condition, and a pleasure to drive. Several nice driver assist features. Basically only had to fill up one time over the 4 days and did quite a bit of driving around the great state of CO.
Having read all the horrendous reviews of car rental companies in Denver I decided to use Turo for the first time and hopefully this experience will be the norm. Smooth and easy. Picked up at the airport, walked through the car with Robert who was friendly and easy going, and then I was off! Dropped off the car at his place (30 min from airport) and then he drove me and dropped me at my terminal and I was off! So easy!!! Car drove well and was comfortable in every way.
Excellent experience with Turo and Robert. He responds very quickly to all messages and was a pleasure to work with. The SUV was exactly as described and the perfect way for us to get up to the mountains to go skiing.
The GLA was great, sporty feel, decent gas mileage and comfortable. I do recommend switching the auto start/stop feature off and putting it in sport mode. It can be a little strange/sluggish taking off from a stop with them on. The sport mode helped a ton in the mountains by holding gears coming down some fairly steep grades and downshifting quicker when you hit the hills.
This was a great car and I look forward to using it again next time I'm in the Denver area. Robert was absolutely great to work with and was responsive from start to finish!
We set up both of our phones via Bluetooth easily, and enjoyed running our map directions through the radio. The car got great gas mileage and handled well both on the highway and on national park roads.
Robert was very easy to work with, but I had some real problems with the car. He explained to me later that it is the nature of supercharged engines that they need a few moments to mobilize power when starting out, then they take off. For me, when driving the car, that translated into a dead spot when wishing to begin accelerating and then a rather sudden lurch forward, necessitating extreme care not to lurch into something in front of me. I did not feel safe driving the car. I rented if for 3 weeks and never got the hang of it.
--Another big minus was the music system. There was no CD player and no input for my iPod--only the option of using bluetooth technology to connect storage devices--if you can get them to pair with the car. My iPod wouldn't pair.
I loved the car when cruising along on the Interstate. The cruise control works beautifully. I especially liked the feature of receiving a warning when another vehicle is in my blind spot.
I would not rent the car again, although I appreciated the way Robert responded to my situation.
Rob and his Wife were both awesome and very helpful. Pickup and dropoff at the airport were a breeze. The pictures do not do this car justice, you need to rent it and see for yourself. We would definitely rent from Rob again.
