After the rental car company ran out of cars and cancelled our reservation, Melanie rescued us with a last minute rental of her super clean, super nice Jeep. Easy pick up and return help us keep our dinner reservation in Napa.

Awesome SUV! I rented Janet’s car for a family (6 adults + 1 kid) road trip down HW-1, we all fit comfortably. The SUV drives super smooth and responsive. The inside of the car was clean and fresh. It was an absolute pleasure driving it. Janet and her fiancé were also super responsive and clear with the instructions. I will definitely rent Janet’s SUV again if I need to drive a larger group of people on a road trip next time.

Elizabeth was incredible and extremely easy going, very easy to communicate with and she also took me out when she delivered it to show me everything. I really recommend you do this if you're going to book with her so you can fully understand the mechanics of a Tesla, there's a lot of features I would have scratched my head about if I hadn't. The X drove like a dream, we were just blown away every day we drove it around. It's very well taken care of and very clean, the supercharging was super easy and it doesn't take long to do at all. Great host, great Tesla, great experience. A++

First time using Turo and it was great. I got a bigger and better car for less money than I would have renting elsewhere. We arrived so late at the airport that the rental car companies would’ve been closed but with Turo, the car was waiting for me in the parking lot, ready to go, so it worked out great for our timing! Populus was super easy to deal with and communicated quickly and thoroughly. Thanks, and I would rent from you again!

This was my maiden voyage with TURO and in Driving a Tesla. Both were exceptional experiences. Elizabeth was kind and reassuring. I rented the car to have an extended test drive and it was great. Elizabeth was patient with me and assisted as needed. I plan to have a few more test drives before I make my purchase. I will become a regular renter with Elizabeth. I'm still all smiles with the Model X and this rental experience. Will C.

We had an amazing trip and Bradley and his Tesla X made it that much better. Communication was great throughout the planning and duration of our trip. Bradley was there to meet us at our terminal at JetSuiteX in Oakland which was extremely convenient and he made sure he took us through the features of the car before we took off. The car is incredible. It's beautiful, fast, and fun to drive. The massive windshield made the scenic trip even more enjoyable and the transponder for toll roads was a nice convenience. We were lucky to have a Tesla charging station at our hotel which made it even easier to re-charge. I would absolutely rent from Bradley again.

Sonny's Jeep Cherokee was a beautiful car to drive in the Bay Area. It was a perfect fit for all our luggage, including a very large stroller. Sonny was great with communicating and he conveniently met us at the curb terminal for dropoff and pickup. My only complaint is that the gas tank was empty when I picked up the car and I had to find the nearest gas station in Oakland. Overall, very good trip.
