This is my first rental in Miami. Juan is an amazing guy very understanding and met me on time for pick up having just serviced the car before a 1 month rental.
I don't know about other renters, but the top was very easy to take off to ride in style in Miami. There's two modes for going without top. The easy way is just a hatch that when unlocked makes the top swing back and it's a "half convertible" I should say. Most of the driving I did was this way. The other mode where the whole thing comes off needs some time, around 5 minutes to get done but otherwise is very straightforward if you follow a tutorial on YouTube. Juan was nice enough to show me the easy way, and I looked up the way to remove the the full top on YouTube. Just note: never drive with the top down and latches for the top are not locked down otherwise it'll snap back with the wind and might risk the whole top coming off or breaking but that's common sense.
The car drives smoothly, doesn't take up a lot of gas. I think it was around 12mpg which is pretty good for a SUV and a full tank cost around 40-50 depending on prices.
The only issue I have is with the wrangler as a car itself is that most of them are plagued with the death wobble. This is one of them. The wobble shows up above 65mph, but you'll rarely reach that stage while driving. And it's not horrible l, definitely drivable, and it fades a bit after a while. I drove up to west palm beach with the top off and enjoyed every bit of it
I highly recommend renting from Juan, and I do recommend renting the wrangler, beautiful to ride around town with the top off and music blasting. Just make sure you don't keep the top off when parked, I've noticed Miami weather can be unpredictable sometimes!
The vehicle worked great for our Miami trip. Juan was quick to respond and gave clear information regarding pickup/drop off. I ran 25 mins late for pickup, and he was willing to wait on me even though he had somewhere to be.
Him and I were short on time due to myself running late, so I was unable to get direction on closing the roof properly after folding the top open. I would advise any future renter to have Juan demonstrate folding the roof open and closing it back - if you do not latch it while driving in the closed position (in Miami it rains quite a bit), it could possibly catch the wind and open up on you. Latching the roof upon close after opening it isn't as easy as you would think so this is why I advise you to do so.
All in all, great experience with the Jeep. It was awesome driving around Miami with the roof off, especially at night when the weather was much cooler.
Great first experience with Turo. Juan was really nice and very helpful. Pickup & drop off with him was quick & easy. His Jeep drove really well & was exactly as advertised in the photos. Highly recommended. Thanks Juan!
This was my first experience with Turo and renting this Jeep from Juan. He was great and made the experience very pleasant. He was accommodating, fair and honest. We drove the Jeep down to the keys for a nice weekend lunch. Great car, and very nice owner. If you're considering renting, do it! You'll have a great time. Thanks for everything!
Juan was great he went above and beyond for me. accommodating me so that i would be able to receive the car early even though he had class. He gave me a free hour because i had a late active that afternoon. I had a all around great experience with juan. The jeep is beautiful with the top off. Me and my girls was playing are music while the wind was blowing are hair just having a good time. Thanks juan i will be renting from you again.
Let me start by saying Juan is a great guy to deal with . He made it very easy to rent. Me & my wife enjoyed ourselves on our special occasion with this particular vehicle . I highly recommend renting from Juan or Turo in general . I know I will from now on !
Juan and his Jeep are great!! I very much hope to rent his ride again. Jeep was in excellent condition and drove/handled well. Gas economy was actually quite decent. But I'm considering that on my being used to UK fuel costs.
Car was handed over clean and all dealings with Juan were smooth and he responded promptly.
The location is in easy reach of MIA and was $16 set rate in a yellow cab from the terminal and took under 10 mins.
I'd strongly recommend this to a family with decent luggage space and plenty of leg room for all passengers. The rare 5door convertible is not to be missed. Stereo linked to iPhone with ease.
Juan is cheery and polite and a happy face to be greeted by after a long flight. Turo and people like Juan are a much better option than big firms that have you standing about with endless paperwork etc.
