Everything with Ethan was amazing! He communicated amazing as soon as the trip was booked. Super flexible with times! Had a flat tire occur & Ethan was so understanding! The car didn’t have a spare so we had to get towed to a tire location. Ethan was so great about communicating! He was very helpful & covered the costs. Would absolutely recommend him and his car to anyone!

Mark is amazing. His car is superb. He told me all kinds of cool places to hit up while I was on the island, which was a huge help. No question, the next time I come back to the island I will be hoping that I get the chance to use his car again. Thank you so much Mark.

I have rented many cars in the past but I have to say this was the best experience I have had. He was very friendly knowledgeable of the island and the vehicle was in great shape drove well and was very clean. I have zero complaints five stars all day long.

We greatly enjoyed discovering the island with Crystals Ford Mustang. The car was clean and the pickup and dropoff at the airport was really easy. Highly recommended.

We had a great experience renting the Ford Mustang for a 1-day trip to the Volcanos. Mark was very helpful with tips and insights and very flexible regarding pick-up and return. Would recommend and rent with Mark again.

Mark was awesome! We came in on a cruise during Ironman Triathlon chaos and he made our pick up and drop off very convenient and easy. The car was very clean and had all the bells and whistles to make the car comfortable and fun to drive... air conditioned seats are a blessing in the hot Hawaiian sun. Can’t wait to come back to The Big Island and rent from him again.

We rented from Josh when coming off the cruise ship in Kona. His level of communication leading up to, during, and after the trip was perfect. We greatly appreciated the fact that he met us at the pier rather than leaving the car at a lot within walking distance. The pick up was a perfect no hassle experience. We then drove to drop Josh off at his work a short distance up the road. He pointed out a free parking lot which was walking distance from the shops along the main drag in Kona. We drove to an attraction near the Kona airport and then made a stop at the store for some essentials before returning the car. It drove great but unfortunately, the weather was too hot for us to put the top down and really enjoy having a convertible in Hawaii. The drop off experience was no hassle as well. We parked the mustang at the free lot and locked the keys in a lockbox which was provided by Josh and walked back to the cruise ship. Josh made renting off the cruise ship a perfect experience. Having never been to Kona, we did not know exactly how long we wanted to spend exploring. Josh meeting us and the drop off experience let us make the most of our time in Kona. I would highly recommend renting from Josh if you are planning on a trip to Kona.

John is a friendly, easy-going person who made it super easy to pick-up and drop-off the Mustang. We were even able to drop off the car earlier than planned to accommodate our schedule. The car was a blast to drive and got us everywhere we needed on our trip. We highly recommend renting this beautiful Mustang from John.

We had the chance to rent Bryan's sparkling little orange Miata for a short stay around Kailua-Kona, and everything was super smooth and convenient. Bryan was very easy to communicate with and very accommodating with everything from getting us kitted with snorkeling gear to being very understanding when we ended up having to change our travel plans and modifying our return dates. As a host and owner, I would rent from Bryan any other time and any other car. As a sporty little convertible, the Miata was a fun companion to explore the coastline.

Great host! My first time trying Turo and jay made the experience very convenient. He sends you a list of recommendations around the island upon check-in which is very useful. Would rent again.

John Mark was an incredible renter. Extremely responsive and just an overall cool guy. The Mustang is in great condition, allowed me to live out a few days in my midlife crisis. Rent from this guy, it’ll make your trip worth it.

Eugene was great. I was new to Turo, so I was able to use the $25 link he had posted, and he also talked me through the whole process on the day I came to pick up the car. He was friendly & knowledgeable and made it a great experience. The car was clean, handled beautifully, and I would definitely book with Eugene again.
Pat H. - July 30, 2019
Ford Mustang 2015
I was happy with mostly everything. It’s my first time using turo. I didn’t expect the car to have some minor scratches or dents, but really minor so not noticeable right when you are looking at the car, you have to look for them. Gladly Josh was aware of them so that’s good. Drive was smooth. I didn’t realize how big the island really is. I drove above 200miles and the limit was a 100. The pick up and drop off was very convenient, because the car was parked for us at the airport parking lot, there is a convenient lock with a code so the car is safely parked, the minus is that you gotta pay parking fee. It’s a fun car to drive around. Thank you Josh for renting us your car :)

Bryan was the perfect person to rent from. He was flexible when some timing changed and an easy guy to work with. The car was fun to drive and we didn’t look like typical tourists. I would definitely recommend this over your typical rental car.

This was the easiest way to get around the island without waiting in line and filling out a ton of paperwork like you would at a rental company. John was super easy going and very communicative. The Mustang was clean and had no problems. Showed up got the keys and left. EZ PZ. Thanks John.

Pretty sure his solstice was the only one on the island as many people approached us while on vacation. Brent was great! He allowed us to pick the car up a day earlier than we had originally planned. Available for any travel questions, suggestions or help if we needed anything. It was a great opportunity for us to rent & experience the car that we’ve had our eye on & wanted to drive for many years. The car drive great, clean & comfortable for long drives around the island.

Great service and great car. Unfortunate that they make you wash on your own or charge $30 cleaning fee. Recommend John to just build the cost of washing into the price and not require wash on return.

Man! Finally a reasonable alternative to the oppressive Rental Companies! I, like many in my circle, have bad to no credit, nor do we have Credit Cards. Rental companies no longer accept Debit cards, if, Ur credit sucks. So, when Ur stuck at the airport & there is no available Uber or Lyft, Ur only choice is a Taxi! With limited funds, what alternative do we have? The answer is TURO & my newest friend (I like him more as a Brother because John is super cool & super chill!!!), John Mark Wheeler. John has a great collection of really cool cars that U can rent at a competitive price! I got a MUSTANG!!! I couldn’t get such a beautiful car from the rental companies. For the same price that I would pay for small-mid sized cars with the rental companies, I got a Mustang from John. We need to make TURO & John Mark Wheeler’s ability to rent vehicles WITHOUT hassle, to go VIRAL!!! Spread The Word!!!
Demont C. - February 22, 2019

John was very accommodating to us and also drove us to the airport so we didn't have to get a taxi.

Josh was great to work with and a very honest, down-to-earth guy. We rented his Mustang for just two days, but that was enough to cover a lot of miles on the Big Island with the top down – felt very exotic 🏝Highly recommend.
Daniel R. - January 29, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
Bryan was easy to work with and more importantly, honest. Those two things are worth their weight in gold. This was my first rental with Turo and Bryan was patient and explained the process. Picking up the car was substantially easier than the hassle of a standard rental outfit, and the return was even easier. Couldn't ask for a better experience. I would definitely rent from Bryan again. And who doesn't love zipping around the island in a Miata with the top down!
Dave A. - February 1, 2019

John was very accommodating. I believe I was the first driver in the black stang. It was a very smooth and comfortable ride. Best way to see the area and plus the cost is very reasonable considering the uber and taxi prices. If I ever came back, I would rent with him again.
