Working and communication with Colleen was great and her car drove very nicely. Just an FYI that wasn’t mentioned in the description, the car was parked in the Hourly Rate parking lot which is across the street from baggage claim and you will have to pay for parking upon exiting

Davison

Gerald got back to me very quickly each time I reached out. Pickup and drop off required a Lyft due to flight delays, but he was flexible in getting me the keys. The Fiesta is great around Charlotte, but the transmission struggled in the mountains. Highly recommend if you will just be in the city!

Darold
Nissan Sentra 2015
My 1st time using this app. I went to pick up the car from the long term parking lot. Upon exiting there was a balance of $45 to exit the parking lot. Someone who booked with him earlier for the same auto had canceled. I called & text Brian. Although he was on a flight he was courteous and punctual via texting. He sent me the $45 via venmo to get the car out so I would not have to pay for it. The car was great and I appreciate Brian's help. I recommend him to others
Darold B. - July 4, 2019
Joshua
Tesla Model 3 2017
This was a flawless experience. From the beginning, the pickup was incredibly easy, the driving was immaculate in this vehicle through mountain roads where the Tesla truly excelled and the charging platform was incredibly convenient with charging stations at the Asheville Hyatt once I arrived. All in all, this was simpler, more fun, and super cool as a new renting platform without all of the complexities of a conventional renting business. The Tesla Model 3 was just a heck of a lot of fun and Parker was always easy to get a hold of to answer any questions that I had throughout my trip. I would recommend to everyone.

James is a class act. He appears to run a small fleet of very nice Turo cars, any one of which would be very nice to be seen in the next time you plan to fly to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport for a weekend of cruising Sonics, and tending to the wide variety of scholarly pursuits that will benefit your stature when you are pursued while driving one of James’ fine vehicles. If you want to discover why Downtown Charlotte is not called Downtown, it is called Uptown; Uptown Charlotte is called Uptown, but Downtown Charlotte doesn’t exist you need a James rentals. Because there are essentially no sidewalks in Mecklenburg County, if you want to explore you will need a car, and if you need a car, you need to rent one of James’ vehicles. Safe and well-maintained, every one of James’ fleet vehicles is nicer and cleaner than the rusting Chevy Chevette, still sitting in your driveway at home, straddling the razor thin line between qualifying as an antique classic that needs some work, while the Kidney Car folks are appraising it for organ donation in case the C’vette doesn’t start again the next time you attempt to restart it by rolling downhill and popping the clutch. James rents nice cars to nice people, and he is a great person to rent from. Checkout his 5-star reviews! Safe travels!

Ross was awesome. This was much easier than a rental company. I went to Charlotte for the Thanksgiving holiday and a wedding. The car was clean and dependable. Looks nice also. I had a great time and enjoyed the vehicle. This should be the first option if you travel to Charlotte. Thank you Ross.

First time I have ever used Turo and it was fantastic! Manuel was very flexible with my schedule and beyond gracious. I needed the car just for the day and he picked me up from the airport right as my flight arrived and met me in the city to drop off the car that evening. Zero hassles during the rental, the car was in pristine condition and extremely fun to drive. If you are considering renting Manuel’s Fiat, DO IT! I highly recommend it and will rent from him again in the future.

If you go to Charlotte or anywhere close and need a car-Brandon is your guy! This was my first experience using Turo and I was so impressed at how easy and effortless it was but mostly because of Brandon. My friends waiting in line for 20 min for their cars at rental places-had to take shuttles and pay tons of fees..we walked off our plane and straight into our car and off we went..Brandon met us at the airport-right outside the baggage claim and that was it..His car was clean-recently serviced-had phone chargers-waters for us etc...highly recommend!!!
