It was our first time using the app and we came across this listing and it was a very good price for rent for a couple of days. When we first picked up the vehicle had a little issue but the owner was so helpful and friendly was able to work everything out for us. The whole process was a smooth process we appreciated the owner for being so helpful. We will definitely be renting again for our future vacations.

This car is impeccable, very clean, drive was great and looks brand new. The pick up was hassle free. Ljubomir was very nice, he had cold water for me in the car and he even offered me a ride back to my place when i return the car but i decline since my uber finally arrived. He was very attentive to my questions.The price was reasonable. I highly recommend him to all my friends and will for sure use him on my next trip to the desert. Excellent experience for being a first time user for Turo.

We rented from Thomas for purposes of having a large and comfortable, safe vehicle for a long trip. It was clean and sanitized, well kept and dependable. Thomas was quick to respond to any messages and was accommodating when we asked for a special request as to the third row of seats. I would rent from Thomas again!

It was a joy to rent Fred’s Model X. He has updated the Full Self Driving and entertainment Modules so they feel very similar to my 2021 Model X despite it being a 2016. He has multiple chargers, sun shades and other amenities in the Tesla to make the journey in sunny Palm Springs comfortable and easy. Fred was extremely responsive, proactive, and easy to work with from start to finish. I will definitely rent from Fred again when I’m the area.

Alfred made it very easy to make the exchange and even drove us to the airport on our way out after giving the car back! Great experience. The car is nice, does have 200k+ miles but runs well and is a smooth ride. Also note there is not way to connect your phone to play music but Bluetooth does work for calls. I wouldn’t hesistate to rent from him again.
