Had a fantastic time in this Miata. Car was in great condition, quick and smooth ride, but be wary of bumps - it’s a roadster. Went cruising with the top down through Napa and down to Monterey. Highly advise cruising to Big Sur if you rent this car. Plus it’s great for getting around the city. This car was practically made for the Bay Area. The top is really easy to put up and down for all of the changing microclimates. Didn’t want to give it up! ZOEB was great, gave quick and detailed instructions, made things easy for the pick up and drop off. Definitely gonna use his cars (hopefully this one) on future visits.

This was by far the easiest way to rent a car without the hassle of the lines, the run around etc. Rohit is very easy going and for this being my first rental through Turo, I will definitely use the service again. I flew into the Oakland airport, he was there on time and handed me the keys. He even offered to help me find cars that were available monthly. I had questions while renting the car and he was available by text and email which I really thought was great. It's always nice to be able to reach the person you are renting the car from instead of a business office that may be closed until the next day. I took a chance on Turo and I'm glad I did because now I will use them for future car rentals. Rohit is professional and very nice; I would recommend to go through him for anyone wanting to try Turo.

Ahmad was and is very professional, communication was great for me, being that this was my first time using Turo I’ve couldn’t have got a better experience and such a great impression, truly convenient and better than a car rental price for sure! I’d recommend Ahmad for sure to all! Much appreciations and gratitude for this experience as well!

This was my first time using TURO. Edward made pick up and return easy as we arrived into Oakland Airport for our Girl’s Trip to Napa. His brother dropped off the car for us outside Southwest baggage claim then the return was easy parking in the lot outside Southwest. The car was very clean! Edward felt bad that he couldn’t fix the superficial damage done by a bike that hit the front of his car while it was parked overnight the day before our rental begun. He tried to get a body shop to fix it in time, but the car ran perfectly. I just wished he would have informed me of this fact the day before our trip. I wasn’t informed of his superficial car damage until about midnight not receiving his message until the morning of our trip after I confirmed our rental about 24 hours before pick up. On the last day of our trip the Max A/C made a loud sound. When I informed Edward he appreciated it and told me it was probably debris. Edward thanked me for leaving his car very clean. Overall Edward receives 5-stars for making pick up and return so easy, plus $55 per day was affordable compared to other rates at a regular car rental place for an economy car. It was nice traveling in style with a BMW in the wine country that was affordable and clean along with pick up and return being so convenient right outside Southwest baggage claim. The only thing I wish his car had was a backup camera. Edward was a very nice person to communicate with especially for this being my first time renting through TURO.

This car is super easy to pick up and drop off. Solomon was flexible and perfectly responsive! The car runs like a regular car, I was a little nervous about the size, but it feels just like a regular car and it feels a lot bigger on the inside. It literally feels just like a full size car BUT the parking availability is amazing! This lil car can literally fit anywhere. It is super convenient for the Bay Area. Definitely worth it!
