For new Turo users, get a $25 credit by signing up using this link: This fully loaded Tesla Model X 90D checks all the boxes: FAST (0-60 in 4.8 seconds), quiet, smooth, efficient, safe, spacious (front and rear trunks), and of course beautiful! Why pay more to rent a slower Tesla with less range? This vehicle has dual motors (all wheel drive) the large 90 kWh battery, 6-seats, and those beautiful 22" Onyx wheels! It also comes with (6) different charge adapters to give you the greatest flexibility in charging if you're staying at a home or Airbnb that might have a 220 volt outlet in the garage, where just about all the other Tesla's on Turo will have only (3) adapters. With Autopilot, you'll arrive at your destination much more refreshed, as the vehicle can do much of the work for you on the freeway, whether it is in stop and go traffic, or while zipping past all of the other vehicles while you're in the HOV lane (new red stickers are on the vehicle for solo occupant driving, make sure others don't still have the expired white ones). Think of Autopilot as cruise control on steroids, where the car keeps within the lane, and a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Please note, this is not autonomous driving, the driver is ultimately responsible for being in control of the vehicle. With approximately 200 to 250 miles on a full charge (range depends on driving style, speed, outside temperature and climate control), and free access to the more than 50 Supercharger locations in California, and hundreds of more outside of California, range anxiety is not an issue, and you may not have to spend a penny on fuel! The vehicle will arrive to you charged, detailed, and with phone charging cables (Apple Lightning, Micro-USB, and USB-C) for your convenience. Also, a complimentary adhesive metal disc that you can apply to the back of your phone is yours to keep, so you can utilize the magnetic phone dash mount. Other amenities: Navigation with real time Google Traffic information Ventilated Front Seats 6-seat configuration - The 2 rear seats can fold down for more storage Sub-Zero Package (all 6 seats are heated, as is the steering wheel) Premium Audio (17 speakers including the subwoofer) 22" Onyx Wheels Carbon Fiber Decor Smart Air Suspension All-Wheel Drive BioWeapon Defense Mode Cabin HEPA Filtration Internet Radio with voice commands ("Play Imagine Dragons") For a walkthrough of the Model X, please visit

Parking details

For pickup in North County, I can meet you at the Park and Ride at the La Costa exit on I-5 (710 La Costa Ave, Encinitas, CA), there is plenty of long term parking there.


The vehicle will come to you detailed on the inside and outside. As this is my personal vehicle, I do expect it to come back relatively tidy. For your convenience you can choose the prepaid Turo extra for post-trip cleaning so you don't need to worry about vacuuming and external cleanliness. Please no smoking or vaping in the vehicle - Any violation will result in a charge for professional detailing to remedy the odor. Lastly, please keep the vehicle in the US, Turo will not cover you if you cross into Mexico.


  • How do I charge a Tesla?
    The great thing about a Tesla is that there are many convenient ways to charge it. If you plan on road tripping in California, Arizona, or Nevada, the free Supercharger network has you covered, and can get you from empty to full in about an hour, with the navigation system routing you to the best charger(s) for your trip simply by entering your final destination:,-114.13121100000001,32.528832,-121.43817590000003?search=supercharger Please note that although this vehicle includes free Supercharging, Tesla does charge a fee of $1.00 per minute if your vehicle stays plugged in after charging is complete, so please be sure to move the vehicle once done. Any idle fees that I am charged for will need to be reimbursed. If you will be staying at a local hotel or resort, there is a good chance they already have a Tesla Destination Charger there, which can get you from empty to full in about 6-10 hours: (At most hotels there is no fee for their guests):,-116.90816000000001,32.534856,-117.30979689999998?search=destination%20charger, The vehicle comes with the J1772 adapter so you can plug into one of the 100's of public charging stations in town (typically about 12 hours to go from empty to full, and there may be charge): If you'll be staying at a house that perhaps has a common 240 volt outlet installed in the garage for a dryer or RV, I have included numerous adapters which may allow you to charge there. Even if you only have access to a standard 120V outlet, the vehicle can charge from it, though somewhat slowly. Please be sure to return the vehicle with at least 20% charge (about 50 miles of range)
  • What happens if I scrape a wheel on a curb?
    The 22" wheels are beautiful and roll on low profile tires. As a result, if you tap a curb while parking, there is little rubber to protect the wheel. Fortunately, this vehicle has auto tilting mirrors, so when you are parallel parking, the outside mirrors tilt down, allowing you to see exactly how close you are to the curb, which really helps minimize the chances of touching the curb. Should you get curb rash on one of the wheels, my cost to repair each wheel is $150, which I would need to be reimbursed for.
  • How does Autopilot work?
    The best demonstration I could find: Autopilot is powerful, but the driver is ultimately in control of the vehicle and needs to take over if necessary. Just as you would not use cruise control on surface streets, Autopilot should be reserved for freeway use only.

Mike met me on time and gave me a great 10 minute overview of the car and all I needed to know. The car itself was a blast to drive and made the road trip a breeze.
