Justin was awesome to work with and really helped me out when another Turo user cancelled my trip the day before our arrival into Lihue; let's be clear, Justin is a friendly, accommodating rockstar. The car itself was a blast to drive and quite an experience, I would highly recommend the BMW i3! The car was clean, fun to drive, and easy to park anywhere/ everywhere. The only issues we had were with the charging stations around the island and the actual navigation interface of the vehicle. There were not nearly as many charging stations as I was led to believe by multiple sources (not on Justin at all) so please keep that in mind when you decide to rent an EV - plus, the charging stations we could find required payment which kind of stinks when you think you won't have to pay for "fuel." Also, the interface of the navigation of the car is the most tedious process I have ever dealt with (again, not on Justin - this is a BMW issue). We ended up using our phones for navigation for 90% of the trip because the built-in navigation is not intuitive and a lengthy process to enter information into. The car and service was an excellent experience and I highly recommend it. Personally, I would rent this car again if I return to Lihue and just wanted others to be aware of the EV charging stations and frustrating navigation, but those things are not worth picking a different car because once again - this thing was FUN.

Despite a small hitch where a previous driver had damaged to i3 Justin dealt with everything very professionally and was excellent. Car was perfect. One small problem was that many of the local towns charge points were out of service. But nothing to do with Justin who was helpful and obliging

Justin’s rental process is very seamless, from pickup to drop off, he has precise directions to follow which made the whole experience stress free. Charging on the island is no problem at all, there were many convenient locations close to all the attractions as well.

Very fun car to drive. Justin was flawless with communication. Would definitely rent from him again if I ever return to Kauai.
