I was putting my car to wrap, and I figure why not rent a Porsche Boxster for fun. Becuz I always wanted to drive one. And I search throught Turo and found Kent. This is actually my first time using this app, and it's surprisingly very easy. I really enjoy the ride!!!

ZOEB was super flexible and made renting his car very easy. Highly recommend him if you are in the Fremont/Santa Clara area
Amanda - August 12, 2018
Once again it was a pleasure doing business with Zoeb. He makes the process so easy. Especially when it's stressful trying to get out of town, to begin with. The first BMW I rented was a 2 door and I really loved it but this last one was even better. What a responsive, driving machine. His cars are mechanically sound, well-maintained, I feel safe and secure. His BMW's are fantastic, fun and equipped with fast track making it so convenient getting to and from your destination. Zoeb is really helpful, came through for me on a very last minute trip out of town, was flexible when plans changed and I asked for an extension. He is busy but handles everything in stride and makes it all look so easy. I recommend Zoeb and his fleet of cars. He is quick to respond, easy to do business with and reasonably priced.

This. Car. Is. Amazing. I’ve driven a lot of cars on Turo and this one is my new favorite dream car. The sounds. Oh, the sport mode sounds. It’s like a different car in sports mode with the magnetic suspension. The car is so much fun I used up all the miles that Faizal provided! It is a blast in all the roads that I took it to. If you are looking to rent a fun, fast, and sexy car on Turo, this is the one! Also, the renting experience with Faizal couldn’t have been easier. The accommodations for trip time changes were simple! I wanted to rent the car for one more day (I love this car!) and it was so easy to arrange a new drop off time. He was easy to communicate and work with and he keeps his beloved Maserati in excellent shape!!! Do yourself a favor and rent this car! It’s really a thing you need to drive to believe.

Pontiac Solstice 2007
This was our first time using Turo and it was flawless. Daniel was always quick to respond to our questions. The pickup was super easy. We took an Uber to his location and the car was waiting for us. Daniel checked in with us to make sure everything was going well and if we had any questions after we picked up the car. The car was amazing. We had perfect weather, not a cloud in the sky, and was able to drive with the top down for our entire weekend. We super enjoyed it on our days to Napa and Sonoma. The car is in great shape and runs smoothly. We got so many compliments from people on the car and we had to tell them it wasn't ours. Daniel was great in everyday and we would definitely book with him again in the future. Everyone is right though.....go with a duffle bag or backpack or you will have your suitcase in your lap on the ride to where you are staying. It was an amazing trip.

Overall, this trip was amazing. Will was one of the most flexible hosts I’ve seen on Turo in terms of pickup/drop off location. The car was super clean and very enjoyable as I took it through the Santa Cruz mountains. Will did a walk through on the car and shared with me everything I needed to know which was very helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend renting with Will. great price + quality car = amazing experience

Renting from Duk was awesome. His communication during the transaction was instantaneous. His Audi was very clean, and it came with some small essentials such as a phone holder. The pickup was very convenient. The car was left at the pickup site an entire day before my rental day began. I would rent from Duk again anytime i'm in his area, and I would most certainly recommend him to others. Thanks Duk for an awesome experience.

Rented this car for a long weekend/wedding in Santa Cruz, having a convertible to cruise around the beach and redwoods with made such a huge difference.

The car is an absolute beast, the perfect top down experience to drive in California. The unlimited mile option is what sealed the deal for me, as I took a road trip to LA and back on the Pacific Coast highway. Ramsey was a good host, pickup and dropoff were easy. I realised the car had some issues while driving, but I called Ramsey and we took care of it right away so it didn't cause much of a headache. Overall I would 100% recommend renting this car, there are few experiences like it.

The car was exactly what we needed to enjoy cruising through Monterey and Carmel by the sea. You'll definitely get some wanted attention, especially with the top down in this beautiful BMW.

Very cute and fun car for casual travel around the area! Convenient location near the airport is a big plus, it cost around $10 as an UberPool trip. One thing we didn't realize is that the car requires Premium fuel only which is a bit more expensive, however the gas tank is pretty small and the car gets great mileage, so it's still fairly cheap to fill up. Host is very nice and professional and made pickup and return extremely easy. Overall it was a fantastic experience!
