Renting Maxwell's Tesla Model 3 was a fantastic experience. The Model 3 is a blast to drive, among my favorite driving experiences ever. When you drive a Tesla, it's hard to go back to 'legacy' combustion engine vehicles. Maxwell was easy to communicate with, his car was flawlessly clean, and drop off couldn't have been more seamless. I would note that Maxwell's Tesla does not have Enhanced Autopilot enabled.

Had a wonderful Turo experience renting from Mark. His car is an absolute dream to drive - it was my first 100% electric car and he walked me through how to use it and charge it. Please note that it does need to have enough time to charge (I didn’t realize that, and he was able to accommodate my travel plans so that I could catch a train). Easy pickup and fast communication, highly recommend this rental!! Thank you Mark and Aloha :)

Such a fun car! If you’ve never driven a Tesla or are interested in a Tesla, definitely rent one. A tip: When you use a Supercharger, Tesla will charge you for idle time. I found that out the hard way. Still, driving the car around made up for it!

Vlad made my rental process very easy. For an extra $40 he dropped the car off and picked it up, which was my main concern because I didn't have anyone to give me a ride to the car. Vlad was very kind and responded quickly to any of my messages. The car was very clean and worked great. I would recommend renting from Vlad!
