Vlad is the man! Very polite and outgoing guy! Rented his Smart Car for two weeks because my car was in the shop. Two weeks came, called the shop and they said it was going to take another two days for my car to finish, so I asked for an extension on the rental and Vlad gladly accepted! Overall it was a great first time experience using Turo thanks to Vlad!

Tony's Corvette was an incredible experience to add to our holiday. Everything from planning with Tony to having that kind of power to enjoy on SoCal highways was top shelf and I would love to rent his white lightening again! Thanks Tony being able to rent your car for quite an affordable price really added to my family's enjoyment of the area.

This was one of my favorite rentals by far! Not only was it a fun and comfortable car, Zerbin was easy to deal with! I logged over 2500 miles on this car and I didn’t feel any discomfort. No gas, how do you beat that? Finally, the only drawback to the Tesla is the charging time. For me it was aight cause it forced us to slow down and chill a little. I saw more of California and meet some look people at every super charger! Thanks Zerbin. I will rent again.

The best experience I’ve had renting on Turo so far, Armando goes above and beyond to make sure everything is taken care of so you can focus on enjoying the car. I’ll be renting from him again next time I’m in San Diego.

Came back for round 2 of renting... car is in great shape still, the couple that owns the car are really cool and not up tight like you would expect or be afraid of. You cannot beat the investment compared to other cars that would have the same effect. Pretty outstanding. Stop thinking and go get the keys!

Absolutely perfect service, the Z06 is a blast to drive, turns heads EVERYWHERE you go, and is a hell of a bargain. David and Christy go above and beyond to accommodate your needs and even on short notice. They beat the hell out of Hertz Presidents Circle "service" any day. Would do business with again, thanks for a pleasant rental experience.

First and foremost Dave is a professional above all else. The pick up went off without a hitch, above and beyond so much so that there was a complimentary bottle of water waiting for me. He was able to answer any questions or concerns I had about the rental in am incredibly responsive and respectful manner! He was able to work with me in a flexible manner regarding the change of drop off time without even the tiniest of concern. Class act rental and EXCEPTIONAL car. I HIGHLY recommend not only renting this car, but doing so from Dave himself!

David was an absolute class act to deal with and was incredibly nice and down to earth. Sounds funny but he felt like my big brother letting me borrow his awesome car. “Have fun man, just be safe”. I highly recommend renting this beautiful machine from David. You will not be disappointed! 🏁

David makes it all so easy and his red Corvette is awesome. If you want to attract attention just rent David’s Corvette. Or if you are doing this because you want to experience the power of a genuine exotic car it will meet your needs too. Renting David’s Corvettte is highly recommended.

We had a great time! The Zo6 is a dream car and was in perfect condition. The car was available on time, was clean and ready to go. We toured down to Coronado and then up to Carlsbad enjoying the sunshine and the sound of the engine. The car is very powerful with 650HP so it has a lot of love to give and moves without any hesitation. It was nice meeting David when we returned the car and look forward to renting it again. I loved the color combination and look forward to having one of my own within a year. Thanks David!

I found myself in a tight crunch 2 days ago. I rented a corvette stingray off Turo and it was nothing but issues, returned the stingray and got my money back then had about 3 hours to find a new car I found David’s corvette on Turo and fell in love. The car was super clean inside & out and even came with a water. I had a quick problem with my pickup time being 10am, David had no problem with me dropping the car off at 9pm. Will definitely rent again
