Tesla Model 3 2018
I really enjoyed the Model 3. Dave did a great job walking through the features, explaining the charging and how long it takes. I definately will look for Nick's Tesla when back in San Jose. Rainbow road.....

Alberto was an excellent host. His P100D was amazing! So quiet and fast. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to drive a Tesla. Thanks!

Christopher was very nice and super flexible; I had several last minute changes, which were all approved. His responsiveness was very quick as well. Renting his Tesla Model 3 was an amazing first experience. Christopher was very patient with me and took the time to explain the pick up and delivery process since it was my first time ever using Turo. This was also my first time driving a Tesla and my date and I were both very surprised with how amazing the car is. The ride was smooth and very enjoyable. I planned a rather long trip from San Jose to Napa and Christopher’s vehicle offered me the most free miles which was very convenient for me. I will recommend Christopher’s Tesla to my friends once they sign up.

Tylor was great. He explained all details about his Tesla very well, especially when I never even sat in Tesla before. If somebody want to try Tesla just contact Taylor. (btw his Tesla convinced my friend to not buy Range Rover and start looking for Tesla).

Keo is a great person, he is a fantastic host, if you are looking to rent a tesla, Keo is the best, great price and great mileage. He responds quickly, he picked us and dropped back though we live about 50 miles away. His Car 2016 Model S 75 D is an amazing car, must try if you are first time renting a Tesla. Highly recommend, will rent again for sure.

Drive a model 3. You won’t forget it. Eng was very helpful in explaining everything since you need a quick crash course on how to drive a Tesla. Loved taking it on the highway or in traffic since it basically drove itself. Amazing car. Thanks again Eng.

Tesla Model 3 2018
Great owner & amazing, innovative car. My spouse and I wanted to test-drive a Tesla Model 3 under real-life conditions; we're sold on it :-) It helped that Chris responded promptly to my questions and enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the car. Thank you for making such a wonderful driving experience possible at a fair price.

Renting from Will was a seamless experience. He was very helpful and his car was excellent (as advertised). If you're looking to rent a Tesla in the Bay Area, I recommend you work with Will.

If you are in the San Jose area, and you need a car, look no further as this is hands down the best rental you can get. I spent 5 days on business and being a huge EV fan, as soon as I saw his sleek black Model 3, I knew I had to get it. Christopher was quick to confirm my reservation. I had selected the airport pickup option and Christopher was right on time for the pickup (on the dot!). Let’s talk about the car - I’m a huge gear head/petrol head, and as much as I will appreciate the pop and crackle of a F-type, there is no denying the great drive that is Christopher’s Model 3. It’s the perfect daily driver, and your legs for any business or leisure trip. The condition of the car was excellent, and you could tell the car was well taken care of. Extremely clean frunk to trunk :) You know it’s clean when any drop of scrap you leave stands out to the point where it bugs you as the renter! Don’t let size fool you! The Model 3 is Tesla’s smallest offering in its EV lineup, but you would not notice! There ample room for all your luggage. Working in the media field, I travel with Pelican cases and I was able to transport all I needed with no issue. In my opinion this is the car to give people buyers remorse, if you happen to have recently made a vehicle purchase. To those who are unfamiliar with EV driving dynamics, the drive compared to a combustion powered vehicle is quite different, in a good way. The fact you don’t have to be on the brake pedal as often is amazing. Power is delivered from input on the acceleration pedal, and corresponds with how much you apply. But unlike gas, when you let go, there is less momentum carrying you forward and instead the car comes to a near halt. Regenerative braking comes into play at this point. This makes stop and go traffic, as well as normal downtown navigating a more relaxed drive. My journey took the vehicle through the winding roads of Big Basin State Park and the driving dynamics really showed going around the bends. It is a quiet, smooth ride, and I even joke that with the windows down, you can hear the leaves crack beneath the tires. The range of Christopher’s Model 3 was perfect for my trip. Between the excursions and local errands, I never had any issues or concern with the range, and Christopher provided me with a full charge upon pickup. So in other words ready to start the adventure! San Jose is also a really friendly city to EVs, as is the rest of the Bay Area. It will put a smile on your face when you end your trip realizing you didn’t have to pay any California gas prices. The return process with Christopher was amazing, and once again the flexibility of the owner really shows! Due to constant changes with my agenda, the car ended up having to be returned from downtown instead of the airport. I communicated that to Christopher on relative short notice, but he was able to fulfill my request. There may be many Model 3s on Turo now, but if you want the level of courtesy and customer service to complement such an amazing car, Christopher is your go to! 10/10 would rent from again, and I set this experience as a benchmark from what I expect in a Turo rent. Thank you Christopher for an awesome time with your car, and for all your courtesy. ~ Don’t be shocked if you go out and want to buy a Model 3 after driving this one!
Jonathan F. - October 16, 2018
Tesla Model S 2014
Jonny and his Tesla are both highly recommended. I had never driven a Tesla before so I was a little nervous, but Jonny does a great job of explaining the features. If you know how to drive a regular car, you can drive a Tesla, and what a drive it is! Pickup and drop off were easy. If you're thinking about a Tesla, trust me when I say to try this one out!!
Daniel P. - July 16, 2018

First off if you have been thinking about renting a Tesla. RENT ONE. They are amazing. 2nd if your going to rent a Tesla rent from Keo. He is so easy to clearly communicate with and I could tell rite away he is a good guy. Don’t hesitate. This is a very well kept and clear Tesla.
Michael O. - September 6, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Nick made our day trip to San Jose worry free and enjoyable. He met us curbside at the airport, and walked us through the instructions we needed. He was always patient and available via phone when we didn't know how to start the car! Highly recommended!

I had a great experience renting from Rish. I am a Model 3 owner and cannot go back driving a gas engine car! This was cheaper altogether than Hertz so I’m able to justify renting this for my business trip. Rish is a delight to deal with. Would most definitely rent from him again. Thank you!

Rish was really easy to reach and willing to help and give detail information about the car. I tested his car for a couple of days to decide if Model 3 was useful for me. Overall it's a pretty reliable car. Rish take care of his car in detail and I treat it the same way. The car was super clean. What I'll not get for sure is the white interior, haha. Looks fantastic, but I will be so scared to dirt it.

Tesla Model 3 2018
Love the Model 3! Best car rental I’ve ever had. Chris made pick up and drop off a breeze by unlocking and locking the car remotely. It comes with the card key, which works perfectly — although you don’t get all the functionality of the app (since you’d need the owners login to use the app). I did have to pay a cleaning fee, after cleaning it for an hour, but I also understand that some of the interior wasn’t spotless.
Jens M. - September 5, 2019

Excellent first experience with Turo and with an EC. Car was in mint condition with full Tesla app access. The car made the journey an adventure in itself.

Rish is a very gentle and patient host. Since I never drove any Tesla before, he gave me a tutorial that covers every detail I need to know while using the car. And the car itself is worth every penny I spent. Fast and safe, convenience and eye-grabbing. I would definitely like to rent it again and also consider to choose Rish's other listing on Turo.
Mengxiao L. - September 2, 2019

Kingsten was fantastic with the entire process. I was able to book the car the same day and he communicated very quickly with me. He was very open and even wanted me to download the Tesla app and login with his account to have the entire Tesla experience. I would definitely recommend him and his car and I would also personally rent from him in the future. It was a lot of fun driving his Model 3!
Akshay G. - August 21, 2019

Oh man. This was the most fantastic car rental experience I have had. I opted for the airport pickup/dropoff and it was super worth it. The car was spectacular for all the Tesla reasons. Nicole was kind throughout and made it way easy. She gave a quick tutorial and was so good to share her car. Thanks again!

This was my first time driving a Tesla and Christopher provided very good instructions. It was easy to recharge at a Tesla super recharging station which took about 20 minutes to go from 30 miles range to 180. The 150 miles of driving cost me under $9 in electric. Very nice car, fun to drive and inexpensive to power up vs. the cost of California gasoline.
Rick B. - July 26, 2019

Awesome car! Communication was easy and fast, the car was amazing and clean. I’m convinced my next car is a Tesla after this trip.

Fenil was very helpful during drop off at the airport explaining how to use the Tesla. We had never driven one before and he was able to show us within a few minutes so that we felt comfortable driving it. He let us know he would be available for questions which I appreciated. He was very flexible with us as timing, drop off details changed and upfront about any charges. The car was great!

Thanks to Chris, the entire experience exceeded our expectations. We wanted to rent a model 3 before taking delivery on a new model 3 on order. Renting first, helped reassure us that we loved the car and are now looking forward to buying one for ourselves. The car was like new when we picked it up — excellent communication through the process. Chris has managed to streamline the process, making everything convenient and easy. We were very impressed, thanks to Chris and his fantastic car!

Michael’s Tesla P85D was a revelation. I have had an all-Electric car (a Ford Focus Electric) in my family for nearly 4 years, certain qualities are common to both cars, including the instant, all-in power, the silence of the drivetrain and the all-around fun factor. The P85D, however, cranks up the sensation and leaves you looking at gas-powered cars as the (dinosaur juice-swilling) dinosaurs that they are. First is the obvious: the incredible, rocket ship acceleration. You can whip past any car at any time or simply experience an eyeball-compressing take-off. You think it and the car does it. But the real revelation is the handling. This large, 2 1/2 ton vehicle’s board-flat cornering reminds me more of those sweet-handling, lightweight early ‘90s Hondas than anything I’ve driven since, and that is meant as the highest of praise. And the ride is very respectable over the Bay Area’s comme ci, comme çà roads. Another cool aspect of the experience was that for two days I was inducted into the Tesla fraternity, complete with the free charges at the superchargers. It was a rarified world for a guy who flew home after returning the Tesla and got into his workaday Ford. Michael is responsive and is smart enough to understand that allowing you to return the car with as little as 30 miles of range erases much stress on a busy weekend. Until next time, Michael!
