I rented Ken's 2011 BMW z4 and I have to say I was impressed. The car was more then I expected from the ride quality to the performance. I would definitely rent again from Ken, the car was well above par and in immaculate shape.

First experience on Turo and couldn’t have been better. Aleksey made everything possible to make my rental as smooth as possible. Very responsive. Crystal clear instructions. The car was awesome. Very happy overall !

My first experience with this app-centric service. Well thought out in every way. I met Aleksey when picking up the car. Written instructions were easy to follow and, having had a Prius for a few years, no learning curve on its operation. Only 2 miles from my residence, I hope to do business with him and the Prius soon. He was a pleasure and so helpful guiding me through the pre-pickup steps. Thanks so much. Truly a fan of this app and its ease of operation vs. standard car rental agency (not that it's hard, but I like this better). Marti

Aleksey's car got the job done for our entire trip. It's not the most comfortable car in the world, but it was an economical choice and we had no problems.

First off , a host that fills the tank up for pick up is awesome ! It’s always annoying to have to Stop at the gas station immediately after renting so that’s at least 3 stars for him alone ! Also - the car was spotless outside and in when I picked it up ! The host is super sweet ! Came out and met me - spoke about the cool features in the car which included buttons for the gear shift - so cool ! The car is super nice and fun to drive ! I would definitely recommend this vehicle for anyone looking to rent ! - gas mileage was unmatched too ! Only about 30-35 bucks for fill up !

My husband and I along with our 8 month old daughter rented the Tesla model 3 for a weekend tie explore San Fran and the Yosemite area. Aleksey was very easy to communicate with prior to and throughout the rental! Pickup and drop off were a breeze with the digital key! We ended up dropping the car off a little late due to long lines at the charging station and Aleksey was very understanding and accommodating! The car is almost brand new and it was extremely clean! We thoroughly enjoyed our rental experience and would gladly rent from Aleksey again in the future!
Sheralee S. - October 15, 2019

Driving this car is a different type of experience when compared to a regular one, other drivers are in general extra-careful and polite. Many people smile and wave at you when they see you driving by. I used it for a daily commute to work and for a couple of road trips, didn't have any problems. Aleksey was easy to communicate with and I highly recommend doing business with him.
Rahim M. - September 15, 2019

Everything was great with our rental. The car was clean and worked perfectly, communications were straightforward and we were even able to be a little bit flexible on the timing when we were slightly early for our pickup. Would definitely recommend.

Ferrari F430 2007
Jeff is an incredible host! This was my very first Turo rental, and also a very high end Ferrari! This was for a very special day trip to take my 102 year old Grandfather out on a nice drive and some lunch in the North Bay off Highway 1, through the country side to Point Reyes. I had a TON of questions — Jeff was incredibly patient, responsive, accommodating, informative and just an overall really great person to deal with before, during and after this very memorable experience! I cannot thank Jeff enough. I selected the “pick up/drop off” to my home and the car was delivered and picked up right on time, as expected. The car was clean, gassed up and ready to ride! This Ferrari F430 is just a Dream, the Rosso Corsa Red is breathtakingly gorgeous, classic and timeless, what any Italian Racing HeritgFe enthusiast (like my grandfather) would enjoy. The motorized convertible top is breathtaking on a gorgeous day. For a 2007, this baby feels brand new! The leather still looks, feels and smells new. The paddle shifting is a plus to really feel the vehicle on a nice country road. What an excellent experience. I’m so happy I did this and so appreciative of Jeff for being such an excellent host — I could not have asked for more — except, I may have to get my hands on Jeff’s Porsche GT3 one day soon!!! Until next time...😎🏎🇮🇹🏁🏆🥇

Great car that was immaculate mechanically and aesthetically. Owners were easy to work with and gracious. Absolutely the best car I have rented on Turo and so fun and beautiful to drive during our trip through the Santa Cruz mountains and the expansive redwood forests. Truly amazing. Made me forget about the traveling and enjoy the driving.

My husband and I had an awesome experience renting Quincy's Tesla Model S. The car is in great condition, very fun to drive. We took it to a two day trip to Reno. Quincy was very helpful to guide us on where to charge it along the way and checking on us if we need any help. The charging part was not a hassle at all. We managed to have lunch or doing other activities while left the car at the free supercharge station. As we were thinking about purchasing a similar car, this is a great way to really engage with the car and get the best knowledge of it. Quincy delivered the car to our place right on time and gave us a thorough orientation on how to use all the cool features the car offers. I'd recommend renting this car with Quincy whenever you feel like driving a Tesla model S on day trip or weekend getaways!

This car was awesome to drive, I snagged it last minute and wasn’t expecting how nice it would be. It’s got a turbo charged engine so it was super fun to drive through the mountains. The stereo system was fantastic. I now want to buy one of these suckers. I even had a car full of cute girls flag me down to tell me how cool the car was. 10/10

Pick up and drop off from the Turo lot was easier than using a traditional rental company. The car was clean and ready to go upon our arrival. The fiat was the perfect car for exploring San Fransisco and the surrounding areas. Would definitely rent again if returning to the area. Communication with Aleksey was great!
Zac M. - July 12, 2018

Zim was communicative. I received responses to my questions before rental within an hour. He's a very friendly, relaxed and talkative guy. I feel we could have talked for hours. Due to my distance and complicated schedule, pickup/dropoff was going to be difficult. Zim was very accommodating and flexible, making it easier for me. The 300SEL was delivered very clean. Zim explained everything to me since it's a car from a different era. I love this generation of Mercedes and it was my first experience driving one. I've been looking to buy one for a long time, and this just cements it. Zim's 300SEL has a few malfunctioning parts, but i'm not holding that against a near 50 year old car. Thanks for fixing the A/C and letting me be the first to try it out! I WILL rent again and again...until I own my own. Thank you Zim and your 300SEL for making this a very pleasant experience!

Renting Jeff’s car went very smoothly. The auto lock/unlock feature enabled you a level of flexibility. I didn’t have to meet him in person while picking or dropping and thus didn’t have to coordinate ourselves. The car itself had a smooth ride. Communications with Jeff was smooth and he responded quickly to all the messages. I would rent from him again and would recommend him to everyone who’s looking for a small car for city driving.

Great little car for ripping around the city, as it’s nice and small to parks. Just beware if you’re over 6’3 like myself, it’s a bit of a squeeze. Aleksey was a solid host, communication was on point and he was flexible when we needed to drop off earlier. Highly recommend to rent from aleksey!
