Volvo C70 2011

Johan has made our weekend. We rented his car for our anniversary and it was our first time using Turo. We, therefore, weren’t too comfortable with the process, but Johan made it an ease for us. He made sure that we were comfortable with the car prior to departing, explaining everything necessary in great detail. The vehicle itself is a slightly older Volvo, but it doesn’t feel like one. Everything was exactly how we needed it. There was an audio cable provided, which we used to play our own music from our phones, as well as navigating through the country. The sound system of the car is solid and the base comes through really great. On the motorway, I had no issues to accelerate quickly which surprised me a little bit. The roof comes off really smoothly which gave us great flexibility. Overall, this is the perfect car for a couple’s weekend trip. I usually hate reviews that are only positive, but I can’t find anything negative about this car and owner. The only thing I can recommend is that the car might feel uncomfortable if you are very tall (taller than 6”4’), but I myself being 6”1’ was perfectly fine.

It was our first experience with Turo and whenever we decide to use the app again we’ll definitely be returning to James and his Peugeot.
