Had a really great Turo experience renting Kent’s cool 2013 Porsche Boxster S. The car was in great shape and super fun to drive. Kent provided solid communication and made it convenient to revive and drop off the car. I would definitely recommend checking out Kent’s stable of cars if you’re in the SFO or SJC area.

GREAT first time Turo experience !!! I see why Kent and his fleet get great reviews. I "rented" Kent's 2013 911 2S cab (991.1) (the brown over grey 911). We had a little bit of communication prior to the rental. I checked with him a few days out to make sure everything was set because I also had a Boxster rented with Hertz. When he said everything was good to go (and there no scheduled rentals between then and when I was to pick up my car on Saturday May 25th) I canceled the Hertz rental. Kent met us at San Jose curbside pickup we loaded our bags and we're on our way to Carmel for a long Memorial weekend. the car had just over 99,000 miles when I pick it up. It is in excellent shape, especially considering the miles and the fact that they had been put on by many different people. There are really no marks in the body and the interior shows only a few minor "scars", probably from people with studded jeans, but overall the car is in super condition. The convertible top shows a few rub marks, which is typical if the roof is put down before it's completely dry. I put just under 800 miles on it in 5 days ... American Airlines canceled my flight on Wednesday so I extended the rental one day (returned today), which fortunately was no problem. The car is a dream to drive ... the majority of mileage that I put on the car (more than 400) was put driving on driving the fun part of Highway 1 ... between Carmel and Cambria. Again, it was a super great experience and a wonderful car and I thank Kent, and would highly recommend renting from him.

Great experience from start to finish. The car was waiting for me in a convenient airport parking lot. It was quickly opened remotely when I notified Tony that I was at the car. It was full of gas and operated flawlessly throughout my use. At the end of the trip, the process was reversed. As a Miata owner, I was pleased to see that Tony added some options like CarPlay that made my rental even more convenient. The next time I’m in the area I’ll make it a point to contact Tony for a car rental.
Paul - October 15, 2019
Tony and team were super-accommodating to flight changes when our airline delayed. The car was there and ready for us when we arrived and full of gas exactly as expected. The car was definitely a rental, with some signs of previous renters’ “boo boos” around, but looked perfect if you weren’t specifically looking for flaws. The tires were much better than expected for a Turo car, and Tony’s team clearly pays attention to the proper maintenance as they kept with good Michelins even though they cost more. It looked ok but maybe like it wasn’t washed before we got it. The interior was very clean and smelled good inside. We got in, started the car, and the fun week began for us. I will definitely try to book this little BMW anytime I come to the Bay Area. It was surprisingly peppy and small enough to navigate some of the narrow spaces in city locations. Space inside was good enough that we took 4 adults to one of the events we were going to and it was perfect. Don’t hesitate to rent from Tony. Communication was superb and instructions were always clear too. This car and rental from Tony became a big part of the good memories we created this week!

Max was wonderful to rent from. He showed up right on time and communication was easy. The car was clean and full of gas and was also charged up (prius)! Max was also accommodating when I showed up to drop the car off an hour earlier than scheduled. This was a way better experience than last time dealing with a rental agency at SJC airport! I will definitely go this route again in the future. Thanks Max!

Oh man. This was the most fantastic car rental experience I have had. I opted for the airport pickup/dropoff and it was super worth it. The car was spectacular for all the Tesla reasons. Nicole was kind throughout and made it way easy. She gave a quick tutorial and was so good to share her car. Thanks again!

Porsche 911 2014
Karthik’s 911 is hands down the best Porsche value in SJC. I’ve rented others for 2-3x the cost that weren’t nearly as tight, fun, and well optioned as this car is. Sport Chrono, 18-way hardback sport seats, fresh rubber – the car is well maintained and was a absolute blast to drive for a few days in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Karthik is a pro, awesome and timely communications, super easy pick up and drop off.

Quang was amazing to deal with. Never been to CA before and my flight was bit of a mess and delayed me by 7 hours. He came to pick me up when told him I finally arrived, drove me to another parking lot to do the handover. This is good as don't know the roads around the airport, and accepted I can drop car there upon return he he drive me back to airport. Return we communicated night before and in morning, he was there earlier than needed and we met up and he took me back to the airport in front of the 'Air Canada' doors. Again I wouldn't know my way around the airport road system, but Quang took so much stress off me and was punctual. Awesome host, awesome guy, runs his business professionally. He's my lifetime Turo host for my CA trips.

From the start of this trip communication was immediate and thorough. The convenience of curbside pick up from airport was excellent. It really took a load off from my usual experience with renting cars. Dac is an excellent host to his car. I will definitely not only use this app again but also use the services of Dac next go around. 5 star service all around 🏆

Jeff’s M4 was amazing and so was the whole rental process. If I had one complaint, it was how I felt when I went back home and got in my Volvo S60R. While I rented Jeff’s M4 for a special occasion, I might rent it again next time I’m in the area!

Unfortunately the car had a coolant leak and I had to return it 1 day early. But Michael and his team were very responsive and got me another car quickly. Overall a great experience.

I don't know exactly where to start. Anshul is an AMAZING host. My son (13 years old) and I flew in from Florida for a day to see Metallica and wanted to surprise him with a cool ride. We needed the car at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning (8am) and Anshul was there to drop it off like clockwork. We were taking an early flight home the next day and Anshul was there to pick up the car when we returned to the hotel at 1:30 am. Now that is service! Now on to the car. His Boxster is the real deal. He maintains the car perfectly and it was the ultimate ride across the Golden Gate Bridge. It made my son's day for a very special trip. I can't thank Anshul enough. If you are in the area, he is the one to go to!

Raymond was easy to work with and always quick to respond. Loved the Bolt. As someone interested in buying one, it was great to be able to take it on a long-weekend trip with an almost 200 drive to the destination. Used the cord that comes with the car to trickle charge at the destination, so only had to quick-charge at a public charger once on the return trip. Would happily book again!

Jules answered pretty much all communications within ~5 minutes. Very happy. Car was fun and easily recharged at my hotel. I was surprised to find out that this is a i3s model with a bit more power. This thing is LOADED with tech. Jules made sure I knew the ins and outs of an electric car. Don't be worried about renting this if you haven't driven an electric before. It's the perfect first electric car to drive since it has a gas generator in case you run out of power. It's comfy and quick. Great little car. Thanks Jules!
