Vlad is a awsome dude! Just moved here for work and he helped make the transition so much easier! Great car as well! Will definitely be renting from him again! Fully recommended!

I rented this car expecting 2 main things: amazing gas mileage and parking basically anywhere. I was so happy with this car! I got 38 miles to the gallon and was able to park in even the tiniest spot. Now let's talk bonuses. This car is fun! It takes a little getting used to the pedals, the brake pivots from the floor, not from above. Also, this will obviously not be racing off the line from a red light, BUT the car will go 60 to 65 up the mountain and stays competitive on the freeway. It's also great for changing lanes because the car is so short. The turning radius on this car makes U turns super easy and actually enjoyable; every time I made a U'ee I felt like I was showing off. Vlad also delivered the car to me and dropped me off where I needed to go when I was finished with the car. He was also responsive through messaging on the app. I'm delighted with my experience with the smartcar overall. Cons were few: there was some minor debris throughout the car (dusty and a small amount of animal hair) but I was asked if I would like it cleaned more and I declined. Having a freshly vacuumed car isn't important to me and the car was clean already. The only other con was that the radio interface was a little much for me. However I am not very tech oriented so that probably wouldn't bother anyone else. The radio is also not the owner's fault so I thought inappropriate to factor it into the star rating. I will be happy to rent from Vlad again and look forward to being back in So Cal!

Great car rental experience with Turo. The car we rented for 1 month ( yes, one month) from this owner was almost brand new, spotlessly clean, easy pick up and return. Pleasant encounter and great communication with the own. Very pleasant experience. Would rent from Turo again, especially from this owner.

My airport car rental fell through at the airport because of a price quote issue (they were trying to rip me off) so I found Javier's Ford Focus and it was perfect for our trip! Javier and his wife are so nice and communicative, the car was immaculately clean, and pickup/dropoff was very easy. Very nice car with tons of space and good music system Really liked the backup camera too. HIGHLY recommend renting from Javier, I will definitely be renting from them again next time I'm in town. Thank you Javier and family!

This was my first time using this site to rent a car. John was extremely accommodating in my requests to allow me this awesome experience. The car was exactly as portrayed and then some. John was on time with delivery, car was clean inside and out, and fuel topped off. He took a few minutes to show me things about the car. He is a very personable guy. Car ran well and turned many heads. I was having so much fun in it, that I extended my rental time twice. John was quick to respond to all messages. I will definitely be renting from him again.

WORLD CLASS SERVICE!!! This is what to expect when using Vlad's fleet. It was almost TOO easy. Vehicle was in pristine condition and the service was top notch. Vlad is "Johnny on the Spot" with his communication and responds in a very timely manner. Definitely directly looking Vlad up next trip to Cali. Blessings~

Polaris Slingshot 2015
Johns Slingshot was such a blast to drive around San Diego! Everyone’s face lights up when they see this thing! It’s really easy to drive and handles well around the mountains. My buddy and I brought a little too much stuff and thought we were going to be in trouble but it’s actually pretty spacious if you know where to look (behind the seats and to the side of the seats). John was really flexible when we change the pickup location which really made the trip great. When I got home and got back in my normal old car I really missed the smooth ride and toyish feel of the Slingshot. Would definitely rent again!

What an awesome experience. The Acura TL was a blast to drive! Very sporty, fast, and fun!! Car is in PERFECT condition and was fresh and clean upon pick-up. We rented the car for 2 weeks and you can't beat the rental price. Rent this car TODAY before someone else grabs it. You will never want to return it :-)

This was my first time using Turo and the experience was very positive. John was punctual and the car was in great condition. Halfway through my rental time I asked if I could modify the drop off time and he was very flexible and met me earlier than initially planned. He even gave me a ride to my car down the street while it was raining when I dropped the car off so that I didn’t have to walk to where I parked.
Dakota B. - February 23, 2018

Extremely amazing experience, if you’re debating of renting this car, just do it. Extremely convenient, on time, head turner and a drivers car with the sound that makes you smile every time you push the pedal down. You wont be disappointed and the ease of return is what made me write this review and round out the whole rental experience. Don’t think twice on renting this car or from outside car ventures.

Don was the sweetest and kindest! I had to adjust the trip and he was quick to approve it but he also called me personally to make sure I wasn’t going to need to extend again before he confirmed another trip from someone else. Very thoughtful. The car was great since I just moved and needed a way to get around :) very spacious trunk too!

Had a great trip due to the ease of Turo and Javier. Pick up took 2 minutes and drop off was just as easy. Car was smooth and the focus picked up speed faster than I expected from it.

Norberto deserves his status of an all star. When he presented the car, it was immaculate. I wanted to take my shoes off because the car was so clean and I didn't want to track dirt inside. He responded immediately whenever I messaged him. Also need to note he was very accommodative to my somewhat open-ended return time as I couldn't say with certainty what time I would return it.
