Tesla Model 3 2018
I really enjoyed the Model 3. Dave did a great job walking through the features, explaining the charging and how long it takes. I definately will look for Nick's Tesla when back in San Jose. Rainbow road.....

Will was an amazing host! His friendliness and care as a host is 5/5. The Tesla Model S is also 5/5! Thank you for everything, Will! I’ll try to rent the other Tesla when I’m in San Jose again! :)

Always wanted to see what it was like to drive a Tesla and I definitely didn’t regret renting from Chris! Very clean, smooth ride.

Alberto was an excellent host. His P100D was amazing! So quiet and fast. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to drive a Tesla. Thanks!

Christopher was very nice and super flexible; I had several last minute changes, which were all approved. His responsiveness was very quick as well. Renting his Tesla Model 3 was an amazing first experience. Christopher was very patient with me and took the time to explain the pick up and delivery process since it was my first time ever using Turo. This was also my first time driving a Tesla and my date and I were both very surprised with how amazing the car is. The ride was smooth and very enjoyable. I planned a rather long trip from San Jose to Napa and Christopher’s vehicle offered me the most free miles which was very convenient for me. I will recommend Christopher’s Tesla to my friends once they sign up.

This was my first time using Turo and Fay made it a such wonderful alternative to car rental. I got a much nicer car(Tesla) from Fay at a great price. She had great communication through out my trip. I have no doubt about renting from Fay again. Thanks again Fay for the being a gracious host.

Tylor was great. He explained all details about his Tesla very well, especially when I never even sat in Tesla before. If somebody want to try Tesla just contact Taylor. (btw his Tesla convinced my friend to not buy Range Rover and start looking for Tesla).

Great owner & amazing, innovative car. My spouse and I wanted to test-drive a Tesla Model 3 under real-life conditions; we're sold on it :-) It helped that Chris responded promptly to my questions and enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the car. Thank you for making such a wonderful driving experience possible at a fair price.

I am from Germany and it was my first drive in a Tesla 3. I enjoyed it a lot and Leon's flexibility made it a perfect day. Thanks!

If you are in the San Jose area, and you need a car, look no further as this is hands down the best rental you can get. I spent 5 days on business and being a huge EV fan, as soon as I saw his sleek black Model 3, I knew I had to get it. Christopher was quick to confirm my reservation. I had selected the airport pickup option and Christopher was right on time for the pickup (on the dot!). Let’s talk about the car - I’m a huge gear head/petrol head, and as much as I will appreciate the pop and crackle of a F-type, there is no denying the great drive that is Christopher’s Model 3. It’s the perfect daily driver, and your legs for any business or leisure trip. The condition of the car was excellent, and you could tell the car was well taken care of. Extremely clean frunk to trunk :) You know it’s clean when any drop of scrap you leave stands out to the point where it bugs you as the renter! Don’t let size fool you! The Model 3 is Tesla’s smallest offering in its EV lineup, but you would not notice! There ample room for all your luggage. Working in the media field, I travel with Pelican cases and I was able to transport all I needed with no issue. In my opinion this is the car to give people buyers remorse, if you happen to have recently made a vehicle purchase. To those who are unfamiliar with EV driving dynamics, the drive compared to a combustion powered vehicle is quite different, in a good way. The fact you don’t have to be on the brake pedal as often is amazing. Power is delivered from input on the acceleration pedal, and corresponds with how much you apply. But unlike gas, when you let go, there is less momentum carrying you forward and instead the car comes to a near halt. Regenerative braking comes into play at this point. This makes stop and go traffic, as well as normal downtown navigating a more relaxed drive. My journey took the vehicle through the winding roads of Big Basin State Park and the driving dynamics really showed going around the bends. It is a quiet, smooth ride, and I even joke that with the windows down, you can hear the leaves crack beneath the tires. The range of Christopher’s Model 3 was perfect for my trip. Between the excursions and local errands, I never had any issues or concern with the range, and Christopher provided me with a full charge upon pickup. So in other words ready to start the adventure! San Jose is also a really friendly city to EVs, as is the rest of the Bay Area. It will put a smile on your face when you end your trip realizing you didn’t have to pay any California gas prices. The return process with Christopher was amazing, and once again the flexibility of the owner really shows! Due to constant changes with my agenda, the car ended up having to be returned from downtown instead of the airport. I communicated that to Christopher on relative short notice, but he was able to fulfill my request. There may be many Model 3s on Turo now, but if you want the level of courtesy and customer service to complement such an amazing car, Christopher is your go to! 10/10 would rent from again, and I set this experience as a benchmark from what I expect in a Turo rent. Thank you Christopher for an awesome time with your car, and for all your courtesy. ~ Don’t be shocked if you go out and want to buy a Model 3 after driving this one!

First time Tesla user. Nick gave a great tutorial on everything. Would definitely rent his Tesla again.
Kevin G. - January 21, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Car’s performance was amazing. Nick was a great host and made my first Turo rental a breeze. If you’re new to electric cars (like myself) give yourself extra time for recharging as not all superchargers in San Jose area support fast charging (150KW/hr). All in all a great experience and if you plan to try out a model 3 Nick is the man.
Maz M. - November 27, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
Keo was a excellent host to work with. For starters Teslas to use for a small getaway was a great way to go. I recommend for anyone to try it. If you do try a Tesla out, Keo is the guy to go to. The car was clean and ready when we needed to be. The communication on the car policy was excellent and was there if we have questions. I recommend from him and will go through him again if needed
Christian R. - October 29, 2019

Karthik’s Tesla was amazing. Despite not being available at the time, Karthik still arranged for the car to be ready for renting.

I’ve rented with Rish before and it was just as great as the last time. Nice cars, great guy, brand new feeling every time, clean as always, and can never go wrong. I know where I can always return to get my Tesla fix. Thank you as always especially with the quick responses.
Sean A. - March 8, 2020

Renting from Will was a seamless experience. He was very helpful and his car was excellent (as advertised). If you're looking to rent a Tesla in the Bay Area, I recommend you work with Will.
Joel A. - September 3, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2019
Wow! Where to begin? The incredibly friendly and flexible host? Or the insanely cool car and experience? Honestly you couldn’t go wrong with either but I must say that together it was an amazing experience to rent Rishabh’s Tesla. This was my first experience with Turo and driving a Tesla. Rishabh made it so easy and worked with me every step of the way. He was an active communicator that made me comfortable the whole time I was with the car. He even provided startup web links to get ready for the experience that is “Tesla”. Thank you for everything and I can’t wait to do this again soon.
Sameer P. - January 25, 2020
Tesla Model 3 2018
Amazing experience with David and his electric vehicle! Super nice pick-up and drop-off! Tesla 3 was fully charged and clean when we arrived. David is extremely helpful and kind person! He did a car tour for us, explained every single feature and even demonstrated autopilot and auto parking modes. This was our best experience with car rental :)
Vasily I. - January 19, 2020

I actually think my experience with the owner was even better than my experience with the car. Great communication great on the pick up and helped me out with the portable charger. I would definitely rent again.

I did a last minute booking with Christopher around 10:30 PM and picked the car around 8:00 AM following morning. Tesla was clean and charged. We liked the car and our trip overall. I also requested to return it in the evening instead of next morning and Christopher accomodated our request. Highly recommended

Great experience with a great host and car. I recently had a tonsillectomy (as an adult, it’s brutal) and with this whole covid-19 hullabaloo, renting this awesome car, even in its short duration, was the little bit of sunshine I needed for my grey skies. ... and I promise I’ll get the lanyard back to you! I’m sorry again! ... I carry 4 different sets of keys with me, and I consolidate when I can. Can we blame the virus on my forgetfulness? Not that I have the virus or anything!! ... thank you so much.
Jamie T. - March 18, 2020
Tesla Model 3 2018
Everything was great! First of all, Tahsin is a really nice person and all the communication was great! And the car (Tesla Model 3) was awesome, autopilot is an interesting feature and I can see 5~10 years from now every car will have one, even more sophisticated than the Tesla currently offers as there are some (barely noticeable if the driving conditions are nice and easy) cons, work harder Elon! :) I enjoyed every mile I drove. No any issues or problems.
Arsenii T. - July 21, 2019

Nick made our day trip to San Jose worry free and enjoyable. He met us curbside at the airport, and walked us through the instructions we needed. He was always patient and available via phone when we didn't know how to start the car! Highly recommended!
Sumukh T. - June 3, 2019

Keo is a great person, he is a fantastic host, if you are looking to rent a tesla, Keo is the best, great price and great mileage. He responds quickly, he picked us and dropped back though we live about 50 miles away. His Car 2016 Model S 75 D is an amazing car, must try if you are first time renting a Tesla. Highly recommend, will rent again for sure.
Ramana R. - October 1, 2019
Tesla Model 3 2018
First time on Turo, had a brief trip to California and wanted to try a Tesla Model 3. Driving one was a truly incredible experience. Autopilot makes driving on the highway feels great (even crawling in a traffic jam was pleasant!), and automatic parking is a worry-free experience. Obviously, one needs to be always aware about the surroundings because even this amazing technology is not yet perfect. Thank you Mansoor, I've really enjoyed it!
Aleksei Z. - December 9, 2019

Taylor was the perfect host who was super chill and basically told us to have fun with his awesome P90D which was a blast! If u wanna try out this insane machine you should definitely rent from him!

Christian is a great communicator and his Model 3 was fun to drive as well as a great experience for me to get to know the technology before making a purchase! Desmond his ride share manager was a very positive, energetic person who took the time to educate me on the Tesla's functions. They acommodated my needs for the pick up and drop off locations which made it even better. Whenever I'm back in this area, I'll not hesitate to reach out to Christian again!

Rish's Model 3 was amazing. The blue paint really is eye catching, and the black and white interior looked sleek and was very comfortable for three of us on our road trip. After you get used to the gear control and the center screen it begins to feel like driving any other car, besides it being much faster. We did end up having a problem with the range dropping below 30 miles due to us not being able to access the charger that we had planned to use. Rish was understanding of the situation and worked with us. If you're not used to electric cars, you should know that you do have to be extremely mindful of the range if you're not in an area where there are superchargers everywhere. Give yourself at least 30 extra miles on top of the 30 that you shouldnt go below just to be safe. Driving at higher speeds an any elevation gain will reduce your range (even going 65 seemed to do so).

Alberto is an amazing car guy who truly has fallen in love with his product. If you’re trying to have a Tesla experience because you might consider buying one, then I would recommend renting from Alberto. He used to work at Tesla. He can answer a lot of your questions. He has 2 cars (At the moment) S-P100 D and the 3 performance. I have rented both of his cars. We will probably buy one next time it’s new car time at our house. Thanks Alberto.

Zhengjun J. - January 4, 2020

If you’re considering getting a Tesla for yourself, or are just intrigued by them, do yourself a favor and rent from Will. He’s clearly a Tesla enthusiast and takes the time to go over various features and aspects of the car before you go off on your own.
Tonmoy G. - February 7, 2020

Oh man. This was the most fantastic car rental experience I have had. I opted for the airport pickup/dropoff and it was super worth it. The car was spectacular for all the Tesla reasons. Nicole was kind throughout and made it way easy. She gave a quick tutorial and was so good to share her car. Thanks again!
Patrick L. - February 28, 2019

It’s literally my 3rd time renting from Jules. The pricing of his cars is the best deal you will ever find! He is easy to communicate with and work. I had a problem picking up the car and he was able to accommodate my request with no questions asked.
Sophal K. - December 30, 2019

Will and his car were a great experience. Will took his time explaining all the features of the Tesla (if needed) and was thorough helping to document the car damage before and after. Will is friendly and was flexible on pick up and delivery, as were we. The car was awesome, and is the lynchpin in my decision to purchase one in the future. Travel to the area quite a bit, I would not hesitate to pick Will and his vehicle again, and will have him marked as a favorite. Thanks Will!!!
Jeff H. - January 24, 2020

Nick’s Tesla was everything we could ask for and more. We set the pickup time to 12:00 a.m at a short notice and Nick accepted our request and allowed us to pick the car on time. The car was sparkling clean and well maintained. I’d definitely book it again in the future.

My first Turo rental. I was a bit anxious, but Michael was very helpful and brought a lot of positive energy that made me much more comfortable. The acceleration on the Tesla is amazing. It was a great experience. The only thing I would do differently would be to get the higher standard insurance from Turo for peace of mind. Though this has nothing to do with Michael or the Tesla, which was amazing. thanks!

highly recommended to rent Keo’s car for all Turo potential borrowers!! he came to my place to drop the car off, and he gave me a ride on the way back to home, very easy communication + 1000 miles (2 days) that is the BEST offers among all of Tesla car in Turo. I couldn’t be more satisfied!! Thanks so much for all ur flexibility & kindness, Keo!!!

Nick is an exceptional host. He responds quickly, is on time, very friendly, and flexible with the plans. His car is modified so you can tell which car is yours (very important in the Bay Area which is flooded with Teslas). Some Teslas on Turo are beaten up, but Nick’s cars (plural) are well taken care of. Thank you so much Nick!

David was patient with us as Tesla newbies. The rental process was flawless. The car was a great ride. We wanted to try before we buy Tesla as this was a realistic way to assess the learning curve for my 80 year old husband and I.
