ABOUT ME: I play by Turo's rules and I only rent in accord with their policies. Don't try to negotiate gas refilling, reduced mileage rate for miles over 200, book for one day but want to use it on another, book for a specific time, then want to take the vehicle 5 hours earlier. Change your plans? Then change your reservation. . . . just sayin' ABOUT RESERVATIONS OR EXTENSIONS: Sad but true, I do not check my phone or computer between the hours of 8pm and 8am. SO what this means for you is don't send me a rental request or an extension request at 2am. I won't be seeing it. And FYI - I do require 24 hours notice for a rental and for an extension. My advice is that you plan ahead. READ CAREFULLY: TRUCK MAY NOT BE USED FOR: 1. ANY off-road driving in any terrain. To be clear: car may only be driven on paved surfaces. 2. HAULING ANY off-road vehicle. 3. TOWING ANYTHING; towing is prohibited by Turo rules. 4. CARRYING ANY load exceeding vehicle limitations. IF YOU GET A PARKING TICKET OR MOVING VIOLATION YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for a) telling me, and b) PAYING THE FINE, and any PENALTIES accrued because you did not pay the fine timely. CAR RULES: 1. Bring back the truck clean inside and out, trash-free, and . . . fill the tank, or leave $25 cash in the glove box if you didn't have time to fill it. If you don't do either, I will request, via Turo, the cost of filling the tank, and my time to do it. 2. This is a manual transmission with a new clutch. You must have experience driving a manual transmission vehicle. 3. Vehicle is a NO-SMOKING venue. ABOUT THE TRUCK: If you need a workhorse of a car for medium load moving, want a functional-not-fancy car for San Diego sight-seeing, or when your car's in the shop, this vehicle is perfect. Car has an after-market AM/FM radio with 1-CD player, cup holders, working heater and A/C, bench seating with fabric upholstery in the front, and a space behind the front seat where another person can sit with their legs crunched up. The truck bed is longer than most Tacomas, so you've got lots of hauling space. There is not a liner in the truck bed; if you're planning on moving furniture, you might want to bring old blankets or tarps to protect your furniture. We have bungie cords in the truck to secure your load. Vehicle is regularly maintained and in good running order. We give it to you clean inside and out. Turo's Insurance Coverage card is in the glove compartment.

Highly recommend renting this truck. Performed beautifully. Pickup and dropoff was incredibly easy. The process worked exactly how Christ describes ! I would definitely use this vehicle again ✨

I was stressing over where I could find a truck for a reasonable price and found Turo. It got even better, I didn't need a huge truck so I found Chris's Tacoma which was just what I needed. Booked a day before and within 10 minutes or so it was confirmed for the next day. The truck ran great and was a blast to drive stick again. Small truck but it's a v6 so had more punch than my car (turbo). I laugh at how much easier my trip ended up because of how smooth this all went. Thank you.

Chris was AWESOME!!!!!!! That little Tacoma runs like a champ (with 218K+ miles on it). This was a very pleasant experience. Thanks Chris. O-;-)
