Guidelines

Please, no smoking, no pets, and please charge the car before returning. Please read all my FAQs before picking up the car.

Faqs

  • Do you have Tesla's equipped with toll tags?
    All of my cars are equipped with toll tags. My goal is to make your driving experience on toll road seamless. However, you will be sent a reimbursement through Turo for the toll service charges after the car is checked back in. It is a service and we pass through the toll cost.
  • Do I need to return the Tesla Charged or washed?
    Returning charge level; In most cases, no! Your "tank" is a bonus included in the price of the rental. However, please have it returned with at least 20 miles or else a $25 "refilling" fee will apply. Remember supercharging is free! A 70-80% charge would be much appreciated. You do not need to wash the Tesla but a cleaning fee will apply if the interior/exterior is returned dirty beyond reason. I hope this incentives’ you to rent this Tesla and alleviates the extra out of pocket costs vs a standard gas rental.
  • How and where do I charge?
    When you receive the Model S, it will be charged above 70% (unless requested to be charged more). It's recommended for daily driving to charge to 80% for battery conservation. If traveling longer distances it's ok to charge 100%. Keep in mind it takes longer to charge if you are above 80% at a supercharger. If you are traveling: You can charge basically anywhere there is a wall outlet. However, the Tesla Model S comes with FREE Supercharging at any of the Supercharger stations nationwide. Check out all the spots here: https://www.tesla.com/supercharger There are 1000's more available charging spots you can find here: https://www.plugshare.com/ Many hotels and Airbnb's offer free plug ups for guests. Plus, I include a 110V charger cable if needed. This is useful if you have access to a garage with an outlet.
  • What if I run the battery to 0% and get stranded?
    I hope this is a question you never have to ask but emergencies do happen. If you get stranded on the road, please call AAA roadside services at 800-222-4357. You will be requesting Tow truck with dollies to lift the car. If you have min 5 miles, and you are able to put the car into neutral, it is ok to pull the car onto the tow truck. Please make sure to activate tow mode from the main console screen under the services. The renter will be responsible for towing charges and if we assist you with the towing, we will request towing charges at the end of rent via Turo reimbursement.
  • What is Autopilot? How does it work?
    Autopilot is Tesla's name for it's driving assistance feature. It is not true "self driving"...yet. The car can steer itself between well marked lane lines, and can keep pace with traffic; i.e. you set the max speed and the car will speed up and slow down with traffic up to the max speed set. This system is awesome, but has limitations. Some of the limitations I've noticed: it doesn't do well in the left-most lane, or the right-most lane. The best location is one of the middle lanes of a highway. It also will slightly swerve back and forth within the lane when you crest a hill, as the vision system re-acquires the lane lines on the other side of the hill. The car does not do well when someone cuts you off / changes lanes in front of you & very close to you. This system can be activated on surface streets but it is NOT recommended. Autopilot does not (YET) recognize street signs, traffic lights/signals, pedestrians, cyclists, animals, or anything other than cars. If you engage AP on surface streets, it will drive straight through red lights, stop signs, hit pedestrians, etc. Finally, AP is not perfect, even on a highway in a middle lane; it will occasionally mess up and lose sight of the lane and steer out of your lane accidentally. So you really must still pay attention. The system requires you to keep your hands on the wheel, even when auto-steer is enabled. That said, it is still amazing to use and reduces driver fatigue greatly, and it has prevented many accidents since its release, so despite the limitations it is a safety feature! To enable autopilot, the system must be "ready." You will know it's ready when you see two icons on the dashboard display: first is the speed control icon (a circle with a speed number in it, e.g. "45") to the left of the speed indicator, and an autosteer icon (a steering wheel) to the right of the speed indicator. When both of these are displayed, you "double pull" the cruise control stalk on the left of the steering column. To disengage, push the stalk forward, or tap the brakes. When autosteer is enabled, manually steering the car will disengage auto-steer. If only the speed control icon is shown you may only engage traffic-adaptive-cruise-control (single pull of the cruise control stalk).
  • Is your vehicle equipped with Autopilot, Summon and Self-parking?
    Yes! These are currently the most exciting features of owning an AP Tesla and I will demonstrate them at the beginning of our rental period.

Amazing car and Andy was super accommodating

Andrew D.-Aug 21, 2019

Andy is a pro. He sent detailed instructions on everything I needed for a seamless pickup and driving experience. He also chimed in to help with any issues I was having (he knows all the charge spots and directed me to a Tesla Supercharger that made charging a breeze). And, the car was just as amazing. It was my first experience with an EV and the Tesla brand but it will certainly not be my last. The car was a blast to drive and made my trip to Houston a gas free walk in the park. Highly recommend the experience.

Abbas D.-Aug 8, 2019

Andy has been a great communicator, punctual and in the end this has been a great experience. Will definitely recommend Andy & TURO to anybody looking for an awesome way of the "boring" way of doing a car rental. The car is new and clean and just a fantastic all around experience for myself & the family! Thank you Andy and good luck on your future endeavors!

Hector M.-Jul 20, 2019

Really nice gentleman. Car was as expected and he made it real easy. Would highly recommend. Thanks Andy

Juan C.-Jun 2, 2019

Andy was real cool to deal with, very flexible and great communication....pick up & drop off was seamless. Would definitely book with him again.
