------ ABOUT THE JEEP ------
Hit the slopes or explore Utah's amazing landscapes in the perfect vacation/around town vehicle, a 4x4 jeep. This jeep is super reliable (never been in an accident), excellent road gripping four-wheel drive, fuel efficient, and immaculately clean.
Seating for 5 with a good amount of cargo space, or fold down a seat to easily fit skis/snowboards and still seat 4. Available for easy and convenient pickup at the Salt Lake International Airport, your location, or car's location.
------ JUST A FEW CONDITIONS ------
(1) Absolutely NO SMOKING (of anything), this includes marijuana. If the vehicles smells of any kind of smoke or marijuana, you will be fully responsible for all costs associated with having the vehicle decontaminated ($350+).
(2) Turo App Required. For all of our bookings, we do require that you have access to the Turo app on a smartphone during your rental. This will be needed for communication as well as Trip Photos. You will especially need this when picking the vehicle up and when returning it.
(3) Please spend just a few minutes at the end of your trip cleaning up the car inside and out. If the outside is dirty, please also run it through a car wash.
(4) Leave the tank full at the end of your rental.

Car was great! Pick up was easy and convenient. Would definitely book again.
This was my first experience renting a car on Turo. The pro's for Ryan are his communication, genuine helpfulness & drop off/pick up. I had several questions being a first timer that he thoroughly answered and provided me with links on Turo on how to do different things (like adding insurance coverage for another driver).
The pick-up/drop-off was extremely convenient with a clever lock for the keys.
The Jeep ran very well. The tires were in good condition and we never questioned the reliability of it. We made several trips in and out of Little Cottonwood Canyon confidently navigating the pass regardless of condition (snow, rain, sun...). It was also surprisingly fuel efficient. As a previous reviewer wrote, the dead petal was missing - but I didn't perceive this to be a problem.
The disappointing part of the rental experience was the cleanliness of the Jeep. As one previous user wrote, it stunk, bad. The smell was magnified when the heater was being used, but was clearly always present. The odor alone very much dampened the rental experience.
While the exterior was clean, the interior could a lot of help. In addition to some stains you would expect after 60+K miles, there were several items left in the Jeep from other users. A used chap stick tube, foreign coins & several bobby pins had been collected in the interior door handle recess - which grossed me out.
We rented the Jeep for 7 days and based on the price we paid and the condition of the Jeep (specifically odor and interior cleanliness) I would expect the listing to be 15-20% less expensive than what we paid.
All-in-all, I would rent from Ryan again - but I think the Jeep needs some interior TLC. Had the Jeep not smelled so bad, I would have rated 4/5 stars. The 2 Star rating is specifically due to the bad odor and interior cleanliness.
Super simple and straight forward! I was able to pick up the car from the airport and bring it back easily. The car was in great condition and I was able to communicate with Ryan the whole time. 10/10 would do again!
First thing we noticed was the car reeked of vomit as soon as we opened the doors. Tires were also bald, to the point of being seriously unsafe. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that until the last day or I never would have taken the car. Windshield has a large crack in it. And the dead pedal is missing, and the two large screws behind it stick out into the foot well, which could be a hazard in a car accident. This car needs serious maintenance before it should be rented again.
After making the initial reservation, Ryan provided incremental contact which I liked. It helped me to know everything was still good with the reservation. Before my flight departed Ryan provided clear instructions on where to find the vehicle. So when I arrived I knew the vehicle would be there waiting for me and where and how to find it. The vehicle was provided with a full tank of gas and in good mechanical condition.
This car was perfect for our visit to SLC. It is compact but provides lots of space. The 4WD was necessary given the snowy conditions in Park City. Ryan was super quick and thorough in his communications. I'll definitely look up Ryan on my next visit to SLC!
