Guidelines

Toll pass is provide if available and requested. It's not a compulsion but a courtesy. Tolls- The plates are registered to ezpass so if you cross ezpass by mistake, you may be charged through Turo in future. Cleanliness- I rent spotless cars and expect the same in return. Please treat this as your own car but not a rental one. Absolutely no smoking- It is strictly against turo's policy to smoke in or around the car. Your account will be permanently deactivated if any odor is detected. There can be a charge to clean the car. If you smoke, I recommend not to smoke and enter the vehicle right away. Smoke sticks on clothes and then passes on to the leather and interior of the car. Fuel- Please fill premium gas and please upload the picture of the receipt on Turo. No pets allowed unless they are kept in the crate. A fee may be charged to clean pets hair. Have a great experience and hope to see you in future.

First the good: Karim’s communication and flexible pick up and drop off made our day just go that much smoother. We were running behind schedule but it wasn’t an issue at all. Karim always responded promptly and with the the information we needed. Himself as a car host, perfection. Sadly, the bad: The car was not in as good shape as we were expecting. The exterior front bumper was chipped with paint missing. The interior was unfortunately worse. Crumbs in all the crevices, with evidence of the last people’s meals as well as sticky spots of various soda pebbled the dash and Centre console. Added to this were dirty carpets, again crumb loaded and filthy. After a quick wipe down from ourselves we went to put our things in trunk to find a dirty worn t-shirt and garbage. In addition, the cabin had a foul stench of cigarette smoke throughout our whole trip and the tank was only half full when we picked it up, making it rather difficult to guesstimate topping the tank back up to half full. There is also the more concerning issue of the ‘service’ light being on, meaning the car is due for a check up. This isn’t itself a problem, however, when accelerating on the highway you can feel the gears slipping/missing with revs well into the 6000rpm range before switching gears. Hopefully this isn’t a mechanical issue and merely the on-board computer out of sync with the automatic gear mechanism. Either way, this can be a real issue on the road, not least for Centre.

Ahmed was extremely punctual, even though I ran a bit behind schedule when picking up. The car was superb and I will definitely be reaching out again.

I literally cannot recommend this person any higher. My flights were crazy, traffic was insane...and yet he worked around me and my schedule with a smile on his face. Literally one of the most amazing human beings I’ve ever met! 10/10, 100% perfect! Seriously, if you’re looking for a beautiful car and a great person that owns it...THIS IS YOUR GUY!!!
