Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolutely amazing. I rented Tony’s 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata for a day trip in San Francisco. I drove it to Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Coit Tower and some other scenic areas. The car is so thrilling to drive and the perfect size for San Francisco streets. Tony has a great selection of cars and I will definitely rent from him if I need a car in the Bay Area. Thank you Tony!

Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
The car was great to drive and C.j. was very helpful and responsive. I'd very happily rent this car again. Just beware the San Francisco fog when you're driving with the top down!
Oliver K. - October 3, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
What can I say? This car was the perfect vehicle to get full experience of San Francisco with all its hills, the insane hairpins that lead to 60 degree inclines of Marin County, and the beauty and fun of the Panoramic Highway. Jeff was perfect with his communication and availability. If you can drive a stick, rent this car! I would leave six stars if I could.

Awesome car! Flexible pick up and timing. Tony was highly responsive. Would happily rent again.

Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
This was my first experience using Turo. CJ was very easy to work with. He made the whole process very simple and stress free. The Miata was a fun little car to drive around San Francisco, it was great to to cruise with the top down and be able to fit in just about every parking spot.
Nelson B. - March 16, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
Ke was very flexible And accommodating with our schedule and pickup and drop off curbside was excellent. Would definitely rent again.

Mazda MX-5 Miata RF 2017
Always wanted to drive a Miata RF and Juan’s car was perfect. Communication was prompt and he was flexible with pickup and drop off times. Great experience. Thank you Juan!
Anthony M. - November 4, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
The Miata was awesome! Check in and check out was as easy as I’ve had on this app or any car rental!
Will S. - August 12, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
This was my first turo rental and it was perfect. The car was clean and drove great. The communication was prompt and the pickup and drop off were very simple. Thanks to Jeff and his Mazda Miata for making my birthday weekend that much better!
Frank B. - September 18, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
Konstantin was a gracious car host who was easy to communicate with and overall a straightforward, amicable guy. As a first-time Turo user, I especially appreciated his patience with my fumbling on the app and flexibility with my chaotic travel schedule (getting a little lost as an out-of-stater). The Miata itself was a blast to drive through the hilly country roads (and even tolerable in the infamous San Francisco traffic+hills!), with no mechanical issues detracting from the experience (aside from very minor quirks, all which Konstantin was quite forthcoming about). Great overall highlight to my vacation I would be happy to repeat if the occasion ever arose :)
Jonathan S. - April 10, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Fantastic rental. Tony could not have been a better host. Car was in great condition. We had a blast lapping the bay area with the roof down and stopping at various attractions.
Simon M. - August 21, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
Car was great! Highly recommended. My second rental with Jeff- all smooth
Ryan A. - August 20, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Had a few hic-cups due to the previous renter oversleeping. Tony was communicative and delivered the car to me. The MX-5 was good.
William H. - August 19, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
Ke was extremely easy to work with and communicated easily and clearly. Super nice guy with a great car. He delivered the car to us personally at the terminal door and was trusting from the onset. I will definitely rent from him again.
Dessie M. - September 9, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2008
I was very nervous about making this work, because my flight time was changed five times in the 24 hours before my rental. First it was delayed, then they told me I'd be getting in EARLIER (should have known that wasn't going to happen), then it got delayed a couple of hours, then it got delayed three hours, then they changed their mind and told us it was only delayed 1.5 hours. So obviously I was texting Jason every so often and telling him my pickup time was going to change. He was really easy to deal with, the car was in great shape, Turo paid for my ride to the lot where he left it with the lockbox, everything was good.
James V. - September 26, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2012
Probably all around one of the best turos / getarounds I’ve used. Mario was very flexible and easy to work with (he let me adjust my times day of), the car was well cleaned, so much fun to drive and had great fuel efficiency. Will definitely rent again when I’m back in SF.
Yanping R. - September 16, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
Nice little car. Easy to pick up and park at end of rental.
Geoffrey G. - September 17, 2019

Tony is very easy to work with, and the car we rented worked perfectly and was really cool.
Elliott P. - September 3, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
First time user and C.J. was incredible. Amazing communications throughout, full details about the car, and great flexibility when I needed some extra time. The Miata was was clean, had Bluetooth adaptor that was simple, and who can complain about a convertible?! Pickup and return was easy. The bar is set crazy high for me foe future rentals! Will def be back in the future and will recommend!
Christian R. - August 29, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
I had a great time renting Jeff’s Miata. Every automotive enthusiast should drive a Miata at some point. Jeff was always super-responsive and flexible with some of my travel changes, so I’m very grateful for that. I hope to get another chance to rent a car from Jeff on a future trip.
Jimmy H. - April 1, 2019

Evan S. - August 25, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2012
Mario’s car was a lot of fun. We took it into wine country with the top down and had a blast. Be careful to not bring more then one carry on size luggage. It does not fit a regular suit case. Mario was quick to respond and very flexible with pickup. Thank you!
Samantha B. - August 19, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony is very pleasurable to work with! Obviously, owning a rental company is a lot of work, but, god forbid there are any hiccups tony is very accommodating! I would rent with Tony again!
Matthew N. - August 18, 2019

Excellent car, lots of fun and I cannot think of a better vehicle to explore the Bay Area!
Carlos L. - October 13, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2012
Mario was super easy to communicate with and very pleasant and flexible. Car is very small, but comfortable for two people, the trunk accommodated a couple of duffles plus a backpack and some other loose items. Car gave great gas mileage and was the perfect ride for a weekend trip down the coastal highway. The fact that the top was super easy to take down and put back up was a nice plus. Would definitely recommend for a coastal highway excursion.
John-Henry H. - October 14, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
The car was immaculate and fun to drive. Trunk fits a lot more than one would expect. Thanks!

Great car, great trip. No problems. You can't go wrong with a Miata.
Peter E. - September 24, 2019
Mazda Mazdaspeed 3 2013
The Mazda was so much fun!! It handled windy California roads amazingly well and has an insane amount of torque for a car its size. You do need to feel comfortable with a stage three clutch system to enjoy the car so be aware of this if you’re unsure about renting. I absolutely loved listening to the supercharger spool up...such a beautiful sound. Richard was so great to rent from! He was always prompt on getting back to me and made the planning for my trip a total breeze. Thank you so much again for renting this awesome car out to me!
Nazneen A. - July 16, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
I have been comtemplating buying one of the new Mazda miatas for some time now but I wanted to more than the typical dealer test drive that just goes around the corner. Tony's car was very well priced, and had all the same options I would have spec'd if I were buying the same car. This was my first time renting on Turo, but the process was very smooth and easy. They were great in keeping me informed and responded to my messages very quickly! Thanks again for allowing me to drive your car for a day!!!
David S. - August 13, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Great MX-5. Mazda did a GREAT job with the car and Tony did a even better job providing the service! Happy to rent again soon.

C.J.’s a pro. Smooth, seamless, super easy to work with! Sidebar: should I choose to purchase + rent my own car, I’m totally taking pages from C.J.’s book. He gets it. 😎
Cady M. - May 22, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2012
It was a great car to drive. Clean and well maintained. And, yes, she loves the curves! Will rent it again.

Steven Dru
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
Everything was as described. I had some travel issues and cj worked with me to pick up the car when I was able. The car was great, even though it was too cold for me to use the convertible :) I would rent again without thinking twice.
Steven Dru B. - June 22, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
This car is the best! CJ was thorough with rental information and quick to respond.
Carissa Q. - May 29, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Rented an mx-5 last time I came to SF and did it again this time. Definitely recommend, great little car to cruise around town and rip up the mountain roads. Tony was a great host. He provided all the instructions about the vehicles pickup and return and made the whole process really easy. Would recommend!
Jerry L. - May 28, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
This is the second time I rented Tony’s Mazda MX-5 and amazing fun again. Very convenient pickup and return

Jeff was fantastic. Communication with him was fast and he was very understand after my flight had multiple delays. The Miata was well maintained and drove great.
Philip W. - August 27, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
Excellent first experience with Turo! Davy was so accommodating and easy to rent from. Great car, just as described and shown in photos. Easy pick up and returns and great communication. We had a great time!
Carlo T. - July 1, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
I would thoroughly recommend Jeff as a superb person to rent from. Communication was excellent and I had no issues whatsoever. The Miata was great to drive but at my height 6ft4 was not the most comfortable car for longer journeys. If your a bit shorter than me I highly recommend the car.
Jason C. - July 7, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
The Miata was wonderful! The trip was perfect and the convertible is great on the 1. Davy communicated well and was on the ball with everything. Would rent the car again
Mitchell C. - July 15, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
Jeff’s Miata was so much fun and way better to drive around in that a typical rental. The car was pristine and it handled wonderfully. The pick up and drop off was easy peasy. Would rent again for sure from Jeff.
Kathi L. - July 23, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony and the Oxford group were super quick to communicate. Car showed some light wear as you would expect from a rental but that didn’t detract one bit from the beautiful drive down to big sur. Would definitely rent again!
Benjamin H. - July 24, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
The Miata was great to drive, down the west coast. Pickup & return was effortless. Great Experience!
Constantin S. - October 2, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
Ke’s car made my trip! It was just as clean (I think cleaner) than a rental car from a company, the price was much more reasonable, his car was in beautiful condition, pickup and returns couldn’t have been more of a breeze! Thank you Ke for fulfilling my dream of driving down the one in a small fun convertible!
Hodol K. - July 12, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2018
Davy's Miata is an amazing car! He was a great host: very communicative and easy to work with for pick up drop off, and all the other details you'd need to know to have a great trip. The car is in excellent condition and is super fun to drive. Would definitely love to rent from Davy again!
Ed B. - July 15, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
Loved the car and even though it was my first time using Turo I really enjoyed it and will for sure rent with Nabil and Ramsey again.
Maya F. - June 11, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
This car is fun to drive — it’s not really a stick shift, more an automatic with options for the driver to manually change gears. CJ was VERY efficient and communicated all the details well. While the car is older and not cosmetically perfect, it drives like a charm. I’d rent it again if I were in California for a vacation!
Barbara G. - June 28, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Renting from Tony was a breeze. Everything from start to finish was simple and Tony had the car washed prior to my rental. The car runs great and was everything I expected out of a Miata. I would definitely rent from Tony again!
Danny S. - July 1, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony was professional and consistently quick to respond to messages. The car was clean and drove great. Returning the car was convenient. Would definitely rent from Tony again.
Adam S. - July 6, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
We had an awesome trip with this great looking and even better driving car (we nicknamed him Bruce). The owner communicated very well throughout the whole process and pickup/dropoff at SFO Turo valet made for a stress free trip. The car was spotless and so much fun to drive. We would definitely rent Bruce again!
Sean M. - July 10, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata RF 2017
Skylar's Mazda is one of the most exciting cars I have ever driven. If you like driving don't look for any other rides. Skylar is very approachable and pick ups and drop offs are super easy.
Balázs M. - July 13, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
Thanks for sharing the perfect car to escape the city for a quick weekend getaway to the beach! The car was immaculately new, and especially fun to drive with the top down, even on the freeway. Special thanks to Fangrong for a last minute confirmation on Friday night with an early Saturday delivery— it was the perfect Turo experience! (also, the car is so nice, it was an entertaining surprise to overhear random kids make awestruck comments not usually heard about a Miata— and they were so right— this is a sweet car!)
Kolya K. - July 16, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
CJ was so incredibly easy to work with and the Miata was way too much fun. Thinking of buying one now after such a great experience! Definitely one of the best Turo experiences I've had. Just know that the car rides very low to the ground, which means night driving with vehicle headlights behind you is a dramatically different experience that in a typical car.
Anthony D. - July 16, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2016
Edwin really helped us out in a pinch. I rented a car that was too small for our needs and he was able to provide another one from his fleet that was perfect. A pleasure to deal with!

Robert J B. - July 23, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2008
I’m 6’6” tall and easily fit into the Miata even with the top up. Zoeb’s car is great and if you have big feet, the AT is a blessing. The car is quick but not fast and drives amazingly. Everything about pick up and delivery was easy. Next time I’m in town I’d happily rent this car again.
Chris Z. - June 5, 2018

It was nothing but a pleasure to deal with Tony and drive his beautiful car. Tony was professional, punctual, flexible, and helpful. I would rent from him again anytime.

Tony was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the car was exactly as pictured. Pickup and drop-off were a breeze. I would certainly rent from him again.
Zachary C. - August 10, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony was very accommodating on pick up and drop off. Miata has a stick shift which made for great fun. Try to find that at a rental car place. It was a great experience.
John D. - September 1, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2006
This was my first time using my Turo App, and CJ was super insightful and helpful throughout the experience. His car was also as described and very clean. It was super cute to rent to explore San Fran. Overall would recommend !
Amanda F. - September 1, 2018

C.J. was great! He arranged a delivery right at the airport and was super responsive for any questions I had along the way. I live in Toronto and C.J. helped make my trip to SF an incredible one. I would recommend renting from C.J. for some looking to get a cool car at a great price. 5 stars.

Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony was incredibly professional. He can unlock and lock the car remotely so it is ready for you whenever you are ready. The Miata was a blast, especially with the top down on all the beautiful drives around the Bay Area. Highly recommend and will be renting from tony again the next time I’m in the Bay Area. thank you!
Matthew H. - April 13, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
This was a straightforward process to rent Tony’s Miata. The car was ready on-time, was able to be remotely unlocked at pickup and re-locked upon return. The car was a delight to drive and added so much fun to our East Bay jaunt. Thank you, Tony!
Jonathan N. - April 16, 2019
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony was great and his car was awesome! I will definitely rent this one again sometime.

Mazda MX-5 Miata 2008
Renting Stephanie's car was great. Communication around pickup was very smooth (we arranged to pick it up a couple of hours early as Stephanie was heading out of town). She clearly explained a couple of things with the car and left us clear instructions for dropoff. Driving with the roof down was fun. The only very slight negative that I'd note is that the car was not super-clean, but it was perfectly fine for us.
Amar R. - December 1, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2008
Love this car! And Stephanie was very helpful and gave clear instructions on how to use the car. Awesome trip and will definitely rent it again!
Sander I. - November 27, 2018
Mazda MX-5 Miata 2017
Tony was awesome and very accommodating. The pick-up/return process was super easy. As for the car, well, the Mx-5 is a nonstop smile machine, especially with the super slick 6-speed manual transmission. I'll definitely rent from Tony again.

Local San Francisco favorites

Break free of the throngs at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. Hop in your car and try these local favorites during your visit to San Francisco.

  • The Mission

  • The super trendy Mission District is home to some of the city’s best bars and restaurants, from trendy hotspots to low-key, cult-favorite taquerias like El Farolito.

  • The Upper Haight

  • Vibrant with colorful shops, restaurants, and bars, the Haight boasts unique businesses from its 60s heyday and today. It’s also close to Golden Gate Park, the perfect picnic spot.

  • Sonoma

  • While still mildly under the radar compared its sister over the hills (Napa), Sonoma is a perfect day trip from San Francisco, with dozens of outstanding wineries, restaurants, and hikes.
