Suncoast Automotive was my first experience using Turo and let me just say these gentlemen really set the bar high. From the moment I picked the car up (which they were at the airport near the baggage claim area waiting for me let me add) to the time I dropped the car off, these guys were on the top of their game. Communication was superb and the directions that they gave were crystal clear. The car itself was as if I drove it right off the lot and was completely detailed. It was quite impressive. I would highly recommend Suncoast Automotive for your car rental needs as they strived for 5 stars and hit 10 in my book!! Thank you again for everything!

Really great car. Great communication throughout the trip. Some of the interior trim was faulty, but that's not fault of their own.

Ian and the Nissan Altima, we rented, was fantastic! The car was clean and in great operating condition! My husband, who was very worried about the procedures even said this experience was awesome. He recommended Ian to everyone we passed on our vacation along with everyone we know planning to travel to Clearwater! Ian really goes the extra mile when dealing with his clients. We had a hiccup at the airport with the lot being closed. Ian answered the phone right away and was very helpful in guiding us where to go. I could not thank him enough for everything he did for us.

All around great experience! This was my first time using Turo and it was awesome. Edward is very friendly and enjoyable to work with. He was very accommodating and supportive. I rented his Porsche Boxster and it was wonderful. Such a sweet ride, and very well maintained and taken care of by him. Again, this was my first time using Turo, and Edward has set the bar very high for future rentals.

First of all, I need to mention that Marlon did a great job in every aspect when my son and I rented his Tesla Model 3. He is very fast in communication and just a super friendly guy doing his best to make your drive as easy as possible. Even though we delivered the car back half an hour to late due to traffic jam, he didn't charge us any extra. Concerning the car, it was clean and fresh when we picked it up. The only thing you need to pay attention to is that this particular version is a standard range and not a long-range or performance version. It's definitely not a problem, and you can easily find Tesla SuperChargers in the area of Tampa. I give my best recommendations to Marlon and are looking forward to doing business with him again. Next time he promised me that he will have a Tesla Model X in his fleet:)

Clear and timely communication. Car very clean. Roomy interior and huge trunk. Appreciated the umbrella and the USB plug. The car was waiting for us at the airport----walked out the baggage door and there was the car---no waiting at all. This is such a convenient way to rent a car. I love all the choices and so easy to arrange. Never a problem. Our car got really good gas mileage and it was a pleasure to drive. Thank you Ian. Hope to rent from you again.

It’s super clean and the ride was so smooth! It was my first time actually using this app and he was the one who told me about it! I was on a wedding anniversary here in Florida and driving his new fancy Tesla, he made our whole trip! It was an amazing experience getting to drive my dream car.

Kaitlyn was great with whom to rent! She was friendly as ndI prompt in communications. Her Chrysler 200 was a fun car to drive. FYI It has a spacious trunk, be aware if you want to have the top down that you will need the brace set to upright which will reduce the trunk space when in use. It is a great car! Do not hesitate to rent with Kaitlyn!

This was another example of why I love Turo. For less than I would have paid for a standard car through a rental company (and with far less lines/hassle), I got to enjoy John’s Mercedes for the week. Convenient, timely - I could not have asked for a better experience.

The BMW Alpina B7 I rented from Edward was absolutely awesome! It was years ahead of competitors in technology as a lot of it's features are just showing up in mainstream cars. Edward went out of his way to make arrangements for me to get the car which was greatly appreciated! I would definitely rent from him again! Five Stars for sure!!!

The car was amazing...a real head turner...my girlfriend now wants a convertible! At the end of our trip, we completely woke up late had and missed our early flight. Filip was very accommodating and adapted to our situation without skipping a beat. He called in an extension for us too. Also, he was always available if we ever needed anything at any point during the trip. He's the best. It helped make our trip and we'd use him in a heartbeat. Thanks!!
