Ethan provided excellent communication and a great vehicle for my trip. He was quick to respond to messages, the car was clean, and he went out of the way to make it an overall pleasant and easy experience for my first rental. Highly recommended.

An excellent car for great value! The car was clean and well maintained. Dylan was also a huge help and went out of his way to accommodate us. I would highly recommend to anyway looking to rent a car, I certainly will be using Dylan again if I'm back in the bay area!

The car was amazing for a spur of the moment trip to Yosemite and all its twist and turns. What was just as amazing was Ethans flexibility in pick up and drop off! A friendly soul with an above and beyond approach to satisfaction. I definitely plan on renting from Ethan again on my next clear-your-mind day!

It was Amazing. I would highly recommended this car for anyone who is traveling with one or two people. It’s something different but worth the drive. Ethan is also a great guy. The car made our trip complete by allowing us to get to the places we wanted to go.

This was my first time renting a Tesla- and was a bit nervous about it. After meeting with Desmond, he was very thorough and made it super easy to navigate this vehicle. He was available 24/7 with any questions I needed answered! I wouldn’t think twice about booking this car again. I loved it:) And he made sure the car was cleaned out before renting it- something that has never been don’t with my other rentals.

I’ve never driven a smart for two prior to this trip! I loved the car! Great on gas! Huge thanks to Ethan for allowing me to rent his vehicle and making my pick up and drop off process an easy one! I will definitely look to Ethan for my future trips!

This was my first time using Turo, I was very nervous with a lot of doubt about the service. Let’s face it, the traditional car rental companies are a bunch of rip-off. 1. I wanted a good llable vehicle that I could afford. ( I had a tight budget for my trip I didn’t want to spend half of my money on vehicle rental) 2 I wanted to rent from someone that was a good communicator, someone that would not cancel on me at the last minute. My advices: Take lots of pictures of vehicle before driving vehicle of the lots. I took over 20 pictures of every bumps, scratch, usual marking and dents. I made sure the vehicle lights, wipers and horn were in working. I also check the vehicle registration to make sure it’s up to date. And I made sure to report all my findings to the owner. Like I said I took a lot of pictures and text them to the vehicle owner. Overall it has been an absolute pleasure to have worked with Suenja. I highly recommend her for your next Trip.

We had a great 10-day trip with Juwan’s Mustang! We really enjoyed driving it with the roof down and even got some compliments! The car was very reliable and had some extra power when needed! Juwan was very communicative and flexible on some minor timing changes. Had a blast!

It was our first time using Turo. My girlfriend and I took a day getaway to Napa and Mattia’s red Mustang is a beauty and made the cruise super fun with the top down. Mattia is very professional, accommodating and was quick to respond to our questions. The car is really well maintained, very responsive and was the cherry on top to our trip. Thank you again Mattia! You rock! 🙌🏽🚘🔥

Ethan's car is great! It carried me and my sister around the Bay area and all the way to Santa Cruz as well - unlimited mileages was the real deal, we couldn't have seen all these wonderful places otherwise! Ethan was super nice, very punctual on the pick-up day and so kind to offer an extension to our rent for a few ours on the last day! Would definitely keep this car in mind for future trips :)

After 3 failed attempts to rent a car on Turo due to hosts changing their minds on availability, I was able to finally get connected with James who helped me fulfill a last minute convertible rental request. James was communicative and reliable. Pick up and drop off was seamless and I was able to easily park my own car overnight near his location. Would rent again!

My trip was part business and part leisure but Kevin made it a breeze for me. I have a big ground in the automotive business and was unsure about EV’s & self-driving cars on Monday by Friday I didn’t want to drop the car back off. Great car and great people! Definitely will recommend to others

Wow what can I say. Diego made this effortless for a first time Turo user like myself. This was hands down the smoothest experiences I’ve ever had with acquiring a quality anything to use in my life. OUTSTANDING is probably the best fitting word to use. As for his 2019 Black Corvette, it was perfect for our weekend trip to a wedding in Scott’s Valley. We headed south on Hwy 1 dipping in at Half Moon Bay and returned using the winding roads through the coastal mountains making our way back to Hwy 1 at San Gregorio then on up north to the bay. There’s nothing that compares to driving a new, fresh, tight and powerful Corvette in NorCal. Then add in solid black to top it have to just drop the mic and walk away.

Great car. Made chauffeuring around gf and mom around the city and napa very comfortable. Great highway cruiser, quiet and absorbs the bumps of the 101 and 80 and has radar cruise control. Is a big car but still nimble enough that highway 1 along the coast with all its turns was enjoyable as well. 👍👍👍👍 Also, the tan leather/vinyl interior is much nicer than the base model cloth passats on getaround in the area. 👌

We had a great experience renting from Mattia! Second trip with his cars. Easy pickup/drop off, seamless communication and fun, clean car to drive. Grazie!

Toyota Yaris 2008
This car was great. It got us up to Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and back. Sueja was super nice and let us extend our trip when plans went awry. Pros: Great on gas. Perfect for two people, I don’t know if I’d put any more than that in it for a road trip. Small size allows for easy parking and navigation of tight roads. Cons: My only complaint was that the doors on Yaris’s are really wide and easy to swing into other parked cars if you aren’t careful. Loved this car, affectionately named it Yari Gagarin, would rent again.
Mark C. - May 17, 2018
Toyota Prius 2008
Este’s Prius drives like a dream! We took it on a trip from Berkeley to Mammoth and back. The car rides smooth and had plenty of horsepower for the hilly winding highway. There’s a few scratches on the exterior but it’d recommend for anyone looking for a practical car that wants to keep their cost of gas low.
Austin M. - May 29, 2018
Honda Insight 2013
A group of us headed over to Lake Tahoe for July 4th and the trip went really, really well. The car was very clean and everything was as described. It was very easy to drive especially considering I come from Ireland where we have manual cars and drive on the left. I would definitely rent from Mattia again if I could, he answered any queries we had and picking up and returning the car was very simple.
Ailsa M. - July 6, 2018

Car is reliable and cheap with gas. Highly recommend this car for your next trip. Slightly dusty inside but that doesn’t hinder the vehicle’s performance at all. Will definitely rent from Theodore again.
