Nick was awesome to rent from! He dropped off the car and picked up right at our terminal, so much easier than an airport rental company! Nick is easy to work with, flexible, courteous, punctual, and his corvette was an amazing ride through Carmel and the 17 mile drive! Will make some cool Wedding photos too! Thanks for a great 1st time Turo experience, Nick!! We will rent from you again!!

This Toyota Prius was in great condition inside and out. Pick up was a breeze and Jose was very flexible when I ran into trouble with my airline connection to Monterey due to a delay with my outbound flight that caused me to miss my connection from San Francisco to Monterey. The car ran great and gave me no trouble at all. About half way through the rental I noticed that the right headlight was out one night and called Jose to let him know. He fixed it personally that evening by having me drive over to his house, although he had offered to come to my location. The entire experience was great from start to finish and I would not hesitate to rent this vehicle again!

What a pleasure renting Armand’s Porsche!Armand and his wife were incredibly nice, flexible and easy to work with! My flight was delayed so I had to pick up the car later than planned and they were extremely accommodating. I wanted the trip to Big Sur with my GF to be as special as possible and this car and the overall experience was a massive highlight! Thank you so much for making the trip so memorable!

Wesley was fantastic, as was his Nissan Altima. He was super flexible on the pick up even though we came in late the night before and the pick up was supposed to be at the airport, he came to our Airbnb to scoop us up in the morning instead which saved us an Uber trip. His car was super clean, and fantastic on gas mileage. Would love to rent from him again.

Chevrolet Spark EV 2016
Shang and his wife are so great! They made the rental process easy and pleasant. Car was in great condition, very clean. This car is so fun to drive. It has pickup, even though it's an EV! The biggest thing to be aware of is all the details of charging. I couldn't charge where I was staying, so I had to charge while out and about. It was confusing at first, but here's what you need to know: Different electric cars use different charging ports. This car can't use Tesla charging or the charging ports for Asian cars like Nissan Leaf. It used SAE combo (fast, 60 mi / 15 mins) or J1772 (slower, 14 mi / hr) or a regular plug connected to the converter (very slow, 4 mi / hr). Use the EVGo app to find fast chargers. It's 20 cents a minute when you have the pay as you go plan. Use the ChargePoint app to find slow chargers, particularly when you'll be parked for a long time. Costs vary for ChargePoint, and there are a few free ones (especially when you're already paying for parking, like in a parking garage), but typically they are $1/hr or less. Can you take this car longer distances, like from Monterey to SF? Yes! As long as there are fast EVGo chargers along your route. I made that trip twice, charging in Gilroy and somewhere in the South Bay, like Mountain View. This added about an hour to the trip. But, having a small car really made parking in SF easier! Plus, being able to park in EV charging only spots was a big advantage. There are fewer chargers in Monterey, PG, and Carmel, so make sure to be more careful there. I couldn't figure out a way to take the car to Big Sur. I love the car and would honestly consider owning an EV if I lived in urban CA. Last point-- the car can have blind spots if you don't adjust your mirrors properly, so just be extra careful about that. And people may take pictures of your car because it looks EXACTLY like the car emoji hahaha.

Oliver was great to work with and I had an amazing time on the miatia Mx5. The car at the moment only had 6xxx miles so it was like new. This car is definitely a highly recommended if you are exploring pacific coast highway from Monterey. Oliver was super flexible with the drop off and pickups. I will not hesitate to get this car again if given the chance.
