Zoeb was able to pick me up on time, and in the car that I rented. Initial inspection was quick and easy. The car ran like a proper BMW for the entirety of my trip. I ended up having to request a later time to drop off the car and Zoeb responded quickly and obliged. Overall the car was great, and my interaction with Zoeb was hassle free; I would do business with him again. Highly recommended!
Angelo - July 15, 2019
The car was clean and a pleasure to drive. Zoeb helped us out with an extremely last min request and was always quick to respond. His team member who dropped off the car was also wonderful.

Got to say this is the best experience we have ever had with renting a car from someone! We fly in and out of San Francisco often and would never use anyone other than Mike! He’s a sweetheart and vehicles are clean and beautiful and accommodating! Mike thank you for making our trips
Scott - October 15, 2019
Best Turo experience!! Super friendly host. Very accommodating to my last minute extensions. The Acura was so much fun to drive. Kept in excellent condition. Could have charged more. I'm a loyal customer now!

Kevin and his wife were great! His wife picked up my group and I from SJC airport and as for returning the car, they were able to meet me at a more convenient location other than the original return location we had planned for. Very flexible and kind! As for the car, it was enjoyable to drive around! Smooth to drive and gas was soo good! We drove from san jose --> oakland --> SF --> napa --oakland --> back to san jose and only had to fill once before returning the car! Would definitely rent from them again :)

We loved renting Eidref’s Mazda! It drove like a champ, was clean and met all of our needs. Eidref was great to work with, communicating with us clearly and in advance. If we travel to the San Jose area again, we’ll definitely be renting his car again! Highly recommended!

We had a great time in Amy’s fx35! It was fun to drive and did great on some windy mountain roads. Amy was awesome about communicating with us before and during our trip. Would definitely recommend Amy and her Infiniti if you need a vehicle to explore around San Jose.

The car was just as promised and such a great ride! I didn’t have any issues and it made my trip such a breeze. From San Jose to Pleasanton and back and then taking a trip to Santa Cruz and taking the 1 to Oakland to visit with friends and back to Pleasanton and I have to say Sonny’s car was perfect! I drive a stick at home and it was great to have an automatic to cruise around in! Definitely would rent Sonny’s car again if I’m ever in the area! Pick up and drop of was smooth and he was extremely easy to communicate with!

Tayfun allowed me to drive his Jeep Renegade over the weekend in San Jose, at a very low rate. Completely worth it. It’s a very useful yet small SUV that I could both fit anything in and park in small spaces downtown. Very low on gas consumption too. Tayfun was great to work with, he responds to your messages promptly, and it flexible. I just wish I could’ve picked the car up at the airport, but it wasn’t too much of a drag since the pickup point was nearby. Five stars.

The Rav 4 was perfect for our trip down to Big Sur. It handled the curvy mountain roads with ease. It was very comfortable and easy to drive. I would definitely rent again.

Uwanah was a terrific host. He was super flexible when I need to change my drop off time and was very responsive any time I wrote him. I loved the car, too. Very, very roomy with comfortable leather seats and plenty of bells and whistles. Great for short or long trip. Fantastic turning radius for a larger car. Super handy in tight parking spaces. I would definitely rent this car and from uwanah again without hesitation.

It was my first time using Turo and Mohamad made everything simple and easy, even though it might not have been easy for his business. The original car I was going to rent was a Ford Escape but the night before, his vehicle was stolen. But Mohamad gave me a very nice upgrade to a BMW X5 for the same rate. Pick up and drop off was less than 2 minutes combined. I also needed to drop off the car 2 hours earlier than expected because of my flight time in San Francisco and he was very flexible. If I come back to San Jose, I will make sure to come back to him for business.

We had such a great time driving Kyan’s Wrangler. Nothing better than driving along the coast with the top down. Kyan was a great and easy host to coordinate with. Would totally rent his Wrangler again.
Alexander B. - October 3, 2019
Acura MDX 2007
Superb car and host. The MDX is the perfect road trip car - luxurious, comfortable, and practical, yet surprisingly athletic, fun, and economical (24 mpg back and forth to LA). Alex was accommodating and flexible and the ease of drop off and pick up couldn't be better. Was an excellent first Turo experience.
Jay D. - September 30, 2019

Tesla Model X 2017
Jason is an amazing host. His goal was to "ensure we had a trouble free and enjoyable trip". He made himself available via text, email or phone cal any time of the day. Without any prior experience with a Tesla with auto pilot, we were nervous and had several questions. He was truly interested in ensuring we felt comfortable with the vehicle. He never tried to push us to consummate the rental. He even gave us the cables and attachments to charge at non-Tesla chargers and what more, he gave us his ChargePoint to use in case we had to use a non-Tesla charger! I can go on and on signing Jason's praise but let me finish by saying I wish I could give him a 10-star but I am forced to give a max of 5 stars! Thank you Jason for "ensuring we had a trouble free and enjoyable trip". You checked all boxes!!

Very kind gentlemen and very respectful. Easy pick up and easy return. The google maps are a little funny so look for the USA flag flying high and it's right there under it in that lot. That is the fancy lettering and then the pick up and drop is off along the side of the building. U can see the flag still. There is a gas station under a minute away to do your final fill and clean. Very easy and very non stressful. Thank you🙏💓

Adam L. - August 26, 2019
Tesla Model X 2016
Seriously nice family and great fun car to discover California with our 3 children. Tesla X is a very versatile car with lots of boot space even when using 7 seats. Takes a day or so to get over the range anxiety and then you start to drive by using the destination chargers, essentially filling up whilst sleeping at a hotel in Saint Ynez or visiting Hearst castle. I would recommend and happily rent from Reza again.

First turo rental and an excellent experience. One of the best price in town for a high end SUV. Alex was very humble and kind and walked through all the details. Pick up and return was a breeze through. Will rent again with Alex as he has a wide variety of vehicles.

It was a wonderful trip and the car made it a big attraction for the group. There is no question I’m going to have a hard time going back to non-Tesla cars. As for Julie, she was friendly, helpful with explaining how to use the car(!), flexible when we ran into unforeseen delays with charging the car and great at responding to our messages. 10/10 would rent again :-)

This was my first time renting on turo and now I can not even fathom why someone would choose a regular rental company over this. Matt made my experience absolutely seamless and so simple. He was very friendly, helpful, and professional. The car was flawless... And so much fun. I've rented way more boring cars from Budget, Hertz, etc. for more per day than I paid for this beautiful Porsche. Luso has like 100 cars and they are all really nice, and in wonderful condition. Definitely want to rent from them again! That you Matt for the incredible car, the helpful tips, and impeccable customer service!
Christian F. - May 31, 2018

The car is nice and in good condition with the very cheap price in Bay Area. Besides, the communication went very well because Mohamad replied to messages very quickly. If you are looking for SUVs with feasible prices, I'd suggest renting from Mohamad on Turo :)

Mazda CX-9 2016
Shang and his wife were great to work with. Car worked well through our trip , and was much less expensive than traditional car rental. Pick up and drop off at the curb is a really nice benefit. There was a minor break issue with the car during the rental, and shang and I had a few discussions about the problem, which ended up being nothing big at all - break pads just needed to be replaced soon, so there was some squeaking. It was nice to talk to shang directly to clear things up - instead of dealing with a 1.800 rental car number. Everything ended up working out great un the end, and I would rent from him again.
William L. - August 1, 2018

Extremely easy rental. Location and pickup/dropoff process were amazing thanks to David planning ahead. The SUV was amazing and fun and comfortable, and had zero doubts as to its capabilities for my trip. Also David’s mile allotment was extremely generous. I will likely rent from David again.
