This car was perfect for my needs, great on gas, spunky, large enough to grocery shop or transport items in, very clean, easy to park. Would definitely rent again.

This car is awesome. I had never driven one, but the compact size and easy driving is perfect when you're traveling to the Bay for a couple days. I visited Berkeley and zipped through SF streets like it was no problem. Would definitely book again!

Great easy rental. Super responsive to when we extended the trip. Smart cars are hilariously tiny but great to zip around town in and can’t be the miles per gallon. Really easy pick up and drop off - both people were lovely!!

This was my first experience with Turo, and I will absolutely do it again! I chose to rent from Amir because he had the perfect size car for my needs and his reviews were all wonderful. He made himself available for any questions I might have and he's so friendly. Next time I'm in the Bay Area I'll be checking to see if he has anything available!

We had a great trip with Amir's smart car. Amir was very friendly and we had no problems with communicating. We also appreciated his flexibility. The smart car took a little getting used to driving since I had never driven one before, but I really appreciated how convenient it was to park and also how long we could drive before having to fill up the tank! I'm sure we will use this car again.

Took Amir's chariot for a day to complete set errands. Not the biggest car ( as expected) but it was super easy to park and get around town. Highly recommended if you wanna get some stuff done in a car that's easy on gas and easy to drive. A+ would rent from Amir again.

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!

Rady was awesome! She taught us how to use the car and etc and it was super easy. Very kind and friendly.. and she even went out of her way to make a call to confirm where to go for the ferry to San Fran. We enjoyed the drive that we had and we also considered buying one when we get back home lol. Super efficient and gas friendly. We only paid $12 to refill a quarter of the tank that we used to drive to Napa. Farthest we drove was out to Oakville (: it fit our two carry ons and could have fit some more things. Book with Rady! (:
