Wonderful car in pristine condition. Drove from Santa Monica to Newport Beach and back and it was efficient, comfortable and fun. The car is very affordably priced for such an awesome ride. Kairi was very easy to communicate with, punctual and the pickup & drop-off took less than five minutes each. I will definitely be renting this vehicle again. Best luxury vehicle deal off of Montana!

Great car but note the pickup and drop off are in Santa Monica so be weary of traffic if you’re on the east side.

I had the absolute best time renting the Mclaren! David made the trip COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY HASSLE FREE. He dropped off and picked up the car in Santa Monica to make things easier on me and was a super friendly host. His only concern was that I enjoyed the car as much as he hoped! I hope to find more hosts like David in the future!

The car we opted for was perfect for our travels around Santa Monica, the car was basic and simple to use. The pick up location was very accessible to us. The guys were extremely helpful with any questions and queries I had. 100% would recommend to a friend for the future

I had a collection of appointments with clients throughout downtown Santa Monica and instead of ubering everywhere I decided to try Turo. I was late to pick up the car but Joyce was very accommodating. I got in, got out, and dropped off the car. It was all easy.

5⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ everything about this trip and car was flawless Pick up and drop off was an ease. It’s close to Santa Monica and the PCH. Also a plus was I was able to leave my car parked at the pick up location Easy communication and flexibility when it came down to pick up and drop off The car is phenomenal. A monster of the road I opened her up on the freeway and PCH, she didn’t disappoint. The engine just screaming behind you when you’re at full throttle. Car just drops and goes!! Handling like no other. Zipped in an out of laggers Hands down amazing car and I’d rent again

Perfect Mustang to take up the PCH with the top down and into the Santa Monica mountains for the day! Car was clean and fun to drive. I bought this very last minute (an hour beforehand) and not only was Rozina so flexible she was nice enough to offer suggestions and recommendations. First time Turo user here and Rozina set the bar high. I will definitely use Rozina again when I'm in need of a car and will refer all my friends. Don't think twice...book your trip today!

Where do I start... Shy is a great host! He is very kind, helpful, and caring. He truly wants you to have the best experience possible when renting a vehicle from him. He has a great selection of cars from your basic car rental to your fast weekend car. I rented the BMW M3 CS and it was unbelievable! The car drives amazing with perfect amount of power to keep you grinning to keep on going. I am so happy with my experience with Shy and this car that I have already planned on renting the car again! Thank you so much Shy!! You’re amazing

Worth it. Car drives like it is on rails. Super responsive and light weight with enough power for the torque to impress. Attention grabbing with looks and exhaust note. Chris does an excellent job explaining the Italian idiosyncrasies the car is famous for. This car made our trip and would book again. Fun, fast, unique.

I came to LA for a business trip with a few personal days added on. This M3 was flawless and an absolute thrill to ride. Shy was great with communication, the car was picked up freshly cleaned and was a dream to drive around LA. Makes me want to upgrade my M3 to one of these! Thanks Shy for connecting and making sure my experience was a great one.

Porsche 911 2014
I own a 991.2 Targa 4 S. And this car blew my mind. This Porsche Turbo S cab is the best Porsche on Turo hands down. Not sure why they have it on here for so cheap. They are great guys and easy to deal with. No hassle rental. Can’t wait to check out their other cars as well. Highly recommend you rent this for the price - don’t waste time with a 911 C2 / 4S.

Wow! What an amazing car! First time driving a Vette and it was an incredible experience. I’ve driven a GTR and Gallardo before, and this was its own category. The sound coming from the N/A V8 is just beautiful! Best part of the trip was actually the host, Mike. He was extremely flexible and professional. He arranged to have the car picked up/dropped off with the valet at my hotel which was super convenient. Car was in great condition and I definitely recommend renting from Mike!

Ford Mustang 1965
Jeremy and his Mustang were both a great intro to Turo. We took the car on a scenic tour of LA’s history restaurants, canyons, and vistas - venturing as far as the desert outside of Lancaster and the beaches of Malibu. It’s an old vehicle no doubt so you need to drive it as such, but from 7,900 ft to sea level the car was consistent in its performance and an awesome specimen of a stock 1965. You’ll get all the stares and compliments you’d expect. Awesome valet vehicle to feel old school cool and cruise the city. Thanks again!

Both Fadi and the car were amazing. The ZL1 is something else! You simply cannot get a meaner looking car than this, and that engine is a beast!

James’ Tesla was awesome! He explained everything I needed to know with the car and also answered all my questions. This was my first time using Turo and it all went according to plan. He also included 750 miles on the trip so it was a great deal! I would definitely rent from him again. I had no problems learning how to drive the Tesla and charging it was a breeze. Thanks, James!

Might I add Shy’s cars are always in new condition, always a pleasure

This car is a BEAST! I’ve driven M3’s and M4’s before but this car is at a whole new level. I was expecting it to be just a little better than an M3 Competition Package vehicle but I was wrong. Everything from the suspension to the brakes, BMW nailed it on this one. Thank you for putting this on Turo for others to experience. The whole process of renting this was probably the best I’ve ever had since first using Turo! If you love M Cars, you have to experience this.

This was the best experience I could ever imagine having with renting a convertible for Malibu! I had never heard of Turo until the night I actually tried to rent a car, and someone mentioned this app. I booked it and picked the car up the next day. Let me tell you.... this convertible looks beautiful in the pictures, but it’s EVEN BETTER in person!! This convertible was clean, pristine, and GORGEOUS!!! It was extremely easy to drive and it made my Mom and best friend’s birthday’s the absolute best! I highly recommend using this app! Eddie, James’s assistant, is wonderful and very easy to talk to. He made everything so simple and fun! Definitely go with James and Eddie!!! :)
