Renting from Tony was fantastic. The car was clean and well maintained. Tony was also able to give us great tips on purchasing one of our own. Will definitely recommend renting from Tony!

Great experience renting from Jesse and the Oxford Collection team - awesome vehicle and super convenient/flexible, not to mention ultra fast response times on any inquiries/change requests - I will certainly rent again from Oxford Collection and recommend you do too.

Baiqiao is a awesome guy and the whole car rental experience is flawless. We had great communication from the moment I booked the car. The car itself looks clean, well-maintained, and luxury, adding a great value to my business trip. I will definitely rent his car again for the future trips in this area.

Ali was super helpful and communicative throughout the booking process and the trip. The car was in great shape. While it's not the newest or the sportiest thing you can rent, it certainly did not disappoint. The turbos made it peppy from a standstill or while cruising on the highway. Thanks for making my weekend so much more fun!

This was my first time using Turo and, thus, my first time renting from Liliana. Right away, Liliana was responsive, clear, and timely with her communication to me. She was very professional and friendly, which I appreciated! The remote pick-up and drop-off were fairly easy, and I think that is a good option to have. The car was also incredible, in tip-top shape! My boyfriend commented that I looked very “executive” in a shiny black car, which made me laugh. I rented this car for a few days to drive my sister, visiting me from out of state, around a bit and it was perfect for the occasion. I highly recommend renting this car from Liliana; I know I will be doing so again!

Taylor was really easy to work with. The pick up and drop off were super easy. I did have the challenge of a getting unrepairable tire damage during the trip, and because the Model 3 doesn't have a spare, I had to deal with a tire repair shop directly so I could get back on the road.
