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.

The Prius is a dream to drive and the Santa Monica location makes it great to rent when flying into LAX.

Samuele’s car was perfect for us! We used it to drive from Santa Monica to Malibu for a wedding. Easy drop off and return!

Rozina was wonderful and extremely helpful throughout the trip with pickup, extensions, etc. The car was perfect, too! I’ll rent from her again if I need a car in West LA/Santa Monica!

Loved the ease of drop off and pick up. Couldn’t have been easier. The car itself is super cute! Sunroof was the best driving out to Malibu from Santa Monica!!

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!

Wow, the car was perfect, and a pleasure to drive. Robert was a great host and made everything so easy. Pickup in Santa Monica actually worked out perfect for our trip from Texas. The beach view was awesome and we grabbed breakfast close to the pier.

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
Johnny J. - April 9, 2019

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!

This was the perfect car to drive around in for my California trip and Sam has been super helpful even remotely during pickup and drop off. I ran into a little trouble towards the end but that had little do with the car or Sam but just unfortunate events on my end. I would absolutely rent this car again should I return to LA and I think anyone looking to truly enjoy their trip there with no need for a huge car should too!

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

James was very accommodating would rent from him again. Car was easy to pick up and drop off. No problems with the car. I took it on a rather long ride to see how comfortable it is because I order a model "Y" and assume the ride comfort will be the same or better.

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!

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.

Thanks Shy for connecting and making sure my experience was a great one.

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.

This was my first Turo experience and I will definitely be doing it again - most likely with this same car! To be honest, my first choice of vehicle was from another renter closer to my home, but it was cancelled before our trip due to transmission problems. I was hesitant to have this happen to me again but Turo costumer service was very helpful and I was hellbent on having a convertible for my trip so I quickly booked Troy’s gem of a car and let me tell you - IT WAS MEANT TO BE! Troy SUPER friendly and easy to communicate with and the car was SO fun! Easy to drive, in excellent condition and best of all - easy to put the top down 😎 Thank you Troy for making my first Turo experience a 💯! Will definitely be seeing you again!

Jeremy
Tesla Model 3 2018
Such a fun weekend road trip in this beautiful Tesla Model 3. This was my first time using Turo, and it was an extremely positive experience. For those thinking of buying a Tesla or just curious about the cars features, this is the car you need to rent. It has the current Autopilot 2 (as of writing this), which worked flawlessly during the trip (and most importantly in traffic). The car is extremely comfortable from the seats down to the customizable vent arrangement for the AC. The car still was glistening from the fresh car wash when I arrived, and is immaculate inside and out. The host’s assistant took the time to go over the car’s many features, and answered all the questions I had prior to leaving. Was well worth the cost, and was priced very competitively against similar models on Turo. Stop your search and just book this already.
Jeremy H. - August 27, 2018

Shy and his partner were easy to deal with, professional and friendly. The car was everything we thought it would be plus more! I would recommend these guys to the most fastidious person looking for a rental. The green GT-R (the hulk) is a powerhouse and turns head wherever you go. If you’re not wanting all eyes on you, then this car probably isn’t the one for you. Will definitely be back in the near future. Thanks guys! Legends.

James was an excellent communicator the whole trip. Car was clean and just as expected in the photos and it rides great! First time I ever drove a Lexus and it was an awesome experience. I also left something in the rental and he was great about communicating with me in order for me to get it back. I would definitely recommend this car if you ever want to drive around LA with the top up or down! But definitely TOP DOWN!

What a car was so much fun to drive. This was my first time using the app and coming from another country I didn’t know what to expect, but the whole experience was excellent paid extra to get the car dropped off at the hotel was a great option. Sarven’s commutation was excellent he let me know he would be running a few minutes late due to traffic and kept communicating throughout the day. Excellent host and I would highly recommended.
