This is maybe the 10th time I have rented on Turo and ALL HAVE BEEN WITH Elshan! He has such a great selection and I love being able to leave my car parked in the lot while I am renting. The gentleman helping with pickup and return are very good, accommodating, and top notch.

Elshan is simply the best! He goes out of his way to take care of you and I greatly appreciated the accommodation. I caught a flat tire driving on 295 on Saturday evening and within 40 min, Elshan came to me with another truck! If you’re looking for great service to accompany your rental, he’s it!

Porsche Cayenne 2011
Marin is the consummate Turo professional, and his amazing car is quite simply the best value for money on Turo!!! You'd never know it was a 2011 model year Porsche Cayenne because the interior is spotless and looks and smells brand new, despite the reasonable mileage on the car. The exterior looks great as well, and Marin took photos of the entire car and uploaded them to Turo just before I picked up the car. Despite my running late (by an hour), Marin waited and patiently took the time to explain some things about the car and the Turo app to me and my son, and the entire experience (my first rental on Turo after a different renter cancelled on me) was just perfect. The Porsche itself is a must for spirited drivers, and I'm seriously considering buying one after having driven it for 2 days. Marin had several different music CDs in the 6-disc changer, as well as several interesting magazines in the seat backs. The Porsche itself was amazing - the 8-speed auto transmission purred and we got over 20 mpg despite driving it quickly (in Sport mode) on several occasions (I mean, it is a Porsche after all!). Great legroom in the front and back seats, as well as good storage in the spacious back for luggage. Awesome AC, great navigation, fabulous comfy ride - I could go on - just rent it and you will be amazed. Finally, I opted to return the car late on a Sunday instead of at 2pm on Monday (so as to avoid lunch traffic), and although he wasn't there, Marin made arrangements quickly and efficiently to accommodate my request. The only slight drawback was the lack of overnight visitor parking in Marin's apartment complex, but I believe that there is free non-permit parking on Bren Mar Drive off Hershey Lane (although I drove down General Washington Drive and parked of the street, towards the back, near Busso Music, as there were numerous other cars left there and no tow warnings, so I figured I would not be towed - note: it's about a 10-min walk from where Marin was if you walk via the shortcut between Bren Mar Drive and Bismach Drive).

Great Turoist!! This rental had all the convenience of a rental car company. Great car even with a switch that was well communicated. Got a few bonuses for my swap which honestly came in handy as I would have paid out of pocket. I love the drop off and pickup with a little trust needed. Free parking for my car that I left behind. Thank you so much. Will be back ASAP! Highly recommended.

Mr. Wilmer Escobar was in my opinion, the BEST person to rent from-especially for first time Turo renters! Professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful are words that immediately come to mind. When the need arises, we will, without hesitation rent from Mr. Escobar!

Franklin L. - April 29, 2019
Jeep Wrangler 2017
First off, this is the best Jeep Wrangler on Turo in the DMV hands down. I booked the car to do my girlfriend’s graduation photoshoot it finally ended up to a lituation. The Jeep gets lots of attention so you should be ready for people taking pictures of you driving down the city or when the car is parked. Mr. Jonathan made the pickup and drop off very smooth since he took enough time to show/explain all the cool functions(custom) that had been done to the car. The photo shoot was beyond what my girlfriend and I expected because the car enhanced the full scope of the pictures. I will definitely rent this car again.
Emmanuel B. - May 6, 2019

Elshan made my car rental great. The truck was clean and had a great ride. Even though I got the truck with a half a tank of gas, I returned it full and Elshan promised to drop off the next vehicle I rent from him. I will definitely be renting vehicles from him and refer him to my friends.
Willie V. - June 26, 2018

Mohammad and his family were very nice! The truck was very clean in good condition. It rode very smoothly and the interior and exterior are in excellent condition! I would definitely rent from them again should I need a truck.

Car was great, as advertised, and fit our extended family for an out of town trip. Wilmer was a great host and would definitely recommend him to others.

Tesla Model X 2018
Jian's 2018 Tesla Model X 75D was the first Tesla I ever drove, and it was amazing! The interior was spotless, and the car had incredible pick-up and acceleration. Jian suggested that we pick-up and drop-off at his restaurant as I could park there for free over the weekend, which worked for me. Although it was raining cats and dogs during both pick-up and drop-off, both went smoothly, with Jian explaining how to engage cruise control and autopilot. The rear falcon wing doors never ceased to amaze anyone that saw them, and the frunk (front truck) gave extra storage space. The rear seats were easy to fold down and we loaded up the car with lots of stuff. The giant navigation screen was awesome to use, although it took some time to figure out all of the options. We set out on our ~600 mile round-trip and, truly, the only downside was having to constantly re-charge the car at a Tesla Supercharger. This was due to two factors - the lower battery storage capacity of the 75D and my highly spirited driving style. :-) But that aside, the autopilot is amazing; the car really can drive itself, even at high speed, and only during roadwork should you disengage it as it will follow the lines into a barrier if you let it. (It also has a self park feature.) My son discovered a whole bunch of Easter eggs (including the epic "Holiday Show" that will blow you and anyone else away!!!); you can actually look these up while driving the car on the massive navigation screen that doubles up as an Internet browser, car controls, etc. Although I would personally never buy a Tesla because I don't think I could put up with the constant Supercharging stops when driving long distances, be warned that you will need to stop every 100-150 miles for 15-40 mins depending on your driving style and level of charge. Follow the recommended stops as the car will optimize charging to ensure that it happens quickly, and only charge it up to full if you're about to go on a long trip or are having a long meal as it takes a while. In closing, I cannot recommend Jian enough - he was the consummate professional, his daily rate is very reasonable (cheapest on Turo in the D.C. area plus he offers unlimited miles), and I also recommend that you eat at his Chinese restaurant afterwards. Thank you, Jian, for the excellent experience!

Maunak was a pleasure to work with. He responded to my questions quickly and thoroughly. He is friendly and professional. Maunak took the time to put together a thumb drive of beach music for our trip to the Outer Banks. What a nice surprise! The car was a pleasure to drive as well. I highly recommend renting from Maunak!

Wilmer was a great person to work with, and his staff are professional too. He was completely flexible, and highly communicative. And I was one of the early renters of his new flagship vehicle, the Audi Q8, and it was an incredible, sporty, state-of-the-art SUV. An excellent vehicle to rent to shuttle 4 people around comfortably, and in amazement of the advanced technology. I loved it! I'll definitely rent from Wilmer again in the future when I need a local vehicle.
