Tesla Model 3 2018
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.

Tesla Model 3 2018
Amazing Car and James is very patient explaining everything about the car. Very nice experience I recommend it for everyone wanting to try Tesla or just drive around LA in a really nice car. I went all the way to San Diego and back on a Day. I had to supercharge in a Tesla station for 30 min and everything was perfect. Thanks James, great host and great car!

James’ car is amazing — very clean and beautiful — and he explained how everything worked clearly and patiently. Loved the experience of driving a Tesla, and it was super easy to arrange pick up and return.

My wife and I took Michael’s Tesla up the PCH to San Francisco and it could not have gone more smoothly. What a great car and easy rental experience!

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!

Had a fun couple of days with the car, but what made all the difference was the communication with the owner and his team. They were patient in person and responsive by text, making sure everything went smooth.

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
Tesla Model 3 2018
Honestly the best rental I’ve ever had. James’ assistant Eddie was so helpful and the whole process went so smooth. The Tesla was incredible - autopilot works flawlessly on the freeway. Definitely the most fun I’ve ever had driving a car around Los Angeles.
Paul S. - November 16, 2018
Tesla Model S 2015
Gabe is the most attentive, professional and kind owner I've ever rented from. His car was impeccable, delivery and return was a breeze. He took time to walk me through all the functions of the car and day to day communication was outstanding. I highly recommended renting from Gabe. He will easily be your go to Tesla guy on Turo.

An amazing car and hassle free rental experience. James is friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. Renting the model 3 and taking a drive along the Pacific Highway is an experience I’d highly recommended. The Tesla is easy to drive and feels like the future.
