Kent's car was perfect for the day trip to Napa/Sonoma, and the twisty roads to Big Basin. Very fun and cool car. Thanks!

Kent's 911 was wonderfully maintained and drove very well. A special car to enjoy for special trips. Would absolutely rent from again- the Turo Valet lot at SFO made it easy!

The interaction with Zach was great! The use of the keyless system worked perfectly. The car that I got seemed to not have been cleaned for awhile. I drove a Smart Car. And this car is perfect for the city, but no so much for a long ride. I felt every bump on the road on the highway. Overall great experience with Zach.

We absolutely loved Kevin's Mustang! Wish the weather in SF was a bit warmer so we could enjoy the car to the max. The car was super clean, the Turo go was super convenient, and the check in/out process was seamless. Kevin is excellent at communicating - also I really appreciated his being flexible with our schedule. One thing to note: this is a great car for two people. If you have more than three, go with a sedan. I will rent Kevin's car again if I go back to SF.
