Kent was great. I’ve used Turo a few times and this was one of the best experiences. The drop off and pick up at a location of my choice was wonderful. Car was clean and comfy! Will definitely do it again if we need an AWD.

We used this car to go from Palo Alto to Sonoma for a long weekend. The car is beautiful (and very cool) and drove wonderfully. Baiqiao was flexible about pickup/dropoff times and responded quickly to our questions. We had a great experience!

The Tesla Model 3 Performance is an amazing car. I did a long road trip to Tahoe and enjoyed every minute of it! Supercharging was fast and convenient. I’d love to do this again!

Michael was absolutely amazing! We are so lucky to have been able to use his car for our trip. The car was super clean and his overview of operating a Tesla was better than anyone I’ve ever met (including people who work for the company). Absolutely awesome and excited to use Michael’s Tesla again soon!

Ali was super helpful and communicative throughout the booking process and the trip. The car was in great shape. While it's not the newest or the sportiest thing you can rent, it certainly did not disappoint. The turbos made it peppy from a standstill or while cruising on the highway. Thanks for making my weekend so much more fun!

Absolutely the best host I've had so far. The pick up & return was easy, the car was clean & a blast to drive. I would definitely rent from Alison again.

Firstly. Allen was a pleasure to coordinate with. The vehicle was immaculately clean, in perfect condition and drove like a dream. This whole experience was simple and quickly came together for our last minute trip. I look forward to Booking with Allen the next time I’m in town! Thank you so much!

I rented car from Turo for the first time, so had lot of apprenhnsion, but I was pleasantly surprised, the overall experience was amazing. It was great to rent car from Alison, she was very helpful and responsive. She made sure that I receive all the information swiftly, which made everything so easy. The car was great and was clean. I would highly recommend to rent this car and I am sure that I will rent it again in future.

Brian made the trip a piece of cake. Although I never got to meet him his communication and flexibility enabled me to pickup and dropoff the car seamlessly using the Tesla app despite my last-minute booking. The Model 3 Performance was amazing and brand new, the autopilot and the acceleration are out of this world. Thank you for everything!

This was my first rental ever using Turo and I have to say, it went better than expected. I met with YZ at their pick up location and found it with ease. They were a lovely couple and were very friendly. We exchanged greetings and looked over the vehicle. The Jeep wasn’t spotless but it wasn’t an issue as we had plans to hit the beach anyway. The Cherokee was basically new and it felt nice driving a brand new car. Thanks you again for the great experience. :)

Yinzi was very responsive coordinating this reservation. The car was nice, clean, it ran smoothly and we had a great 4 day trip. I'd rent it again.
Steve Z. - February 26, 2019

Alex was incredibly accommodating for us. Our flight was cancelled and we had to fly in the next day at a time when he was not available, so he parked the car and left the key in a lockbox for us. After having a nightmarish travel experience, it was much appreciated to not have the car rental be a headache.
David L. - November 30, 2018

Liliana was amazing! Really fast communication! Thanks car is awesome to do a road trip! Since it is hybrid the gas consumption is really low! If I want to rent a car again definitely would consider it.

Shuba and her husband are really friendly and accommodating hosts. I had to change my rental plans a couple times, but it wasn't a problem for them. Shuba is incredibly fast to respond to SMS messages, which in my case was really helpful. Aside from that, their early-model CR-V is simply a lot of fun to drive. It's a simple car, and the process of renting it is simple. I would absolutely, completely, 100% rent this car again from Shuba in the future!

Taylor was really easy to work with. The pick up and drop off were super easy. I did have the challenge of a getting unrepairable tire damage during the trip, and because the Model 3 doesn't have a spare, I had to deal with a tire repair shop directly so I could get back on the road.

Peter's Porsche obviously isn't brand new, so don't expect the latest infotainment, but honestly a car like this isn't about Spotify integration. It's about getting the roof down, rowing through the gears and feeling the wind in your hair, and at that it excels. Very fun, and a great vehicle for a weekend away in Sonoma.

Driving a Tesla Model 3 is an amazing experience and renting from Michael made it easy and fun. The car is in immaculate condition and pickup and return was a breeze. It was fully charged and very clean. The car itself is absolutely amazing and super fun to drive. Charging it is easy there are lots of supercharging stations in the Bay Area. Overall it was amazing and I’d highly recommend renting Michaels Tesla to anyone looking to have a fun and luxurious experience! Five stars.

This was my first time using Turo and, thus, my first time renting from Liliana. Right away, Liliana was responsive, clear, and timely with her communication to me. She was very professional and friendly, which I appreciated! The remote pick-up and drop-off were fairly easy, and I think that is a good option to have. The car was also incredible, in tip-top shape! My boyfriend commented that I looked very “executive” in a shiny black car, which made me laugh. I rented this car for a few days to drive my sister, visiting me from out of state, around a bit and it was perfect for the occasion. I highly recommend renting this car from Liliana; I know I will be doing so again!

Taylor's Tesla 3 was phenomenal. Pickup had a little hiccup and a bit of learning curve of the car, but once that was covered, we were off. Taylor was very reasonable and super responsive with working with our unexpected schedule which we really appreciated. Will defintelly be renting again!

I had never driven a Tesla or an electric vehicle before, and I wanted to see what it feels like. This car has been PERFECT for that. It has great range, is in excellent condition, and has all the bells and whistles that you hear about in Tesla cars. It’s a dream to drive, especially on the highway. Autopilot is available too, and it works well. It’s been an amazing ride... I think gas vehicles are forever ruined for me now. :)
