Mattia was at the pick up right on time and we experienced no delays on our trip. The car was extremely fuel efficient and had no trouble going up a mountain either. Great price for a wonderful car! Would definitely rent again.

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.

Was my first experience with turo and with a Tesla. Ethan was extremely helpful answering my questions from how to operate the car to charging. Autopilot is like a look into the future or the automobile. Charge times vary depending on usage so there is that with any electric car but overall great experience!

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!

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.

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 :)

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.
