I was putting my car to wrap, and I figure why not rent a Porsche Boxster for fun. Becuz I always wanted to drive one. And I search throught Turo and found Kent. This is actually my first time using this app, and it's surprisingly very easy. I really enjoy the ride!!!

Once again it was a pleasure doing business with Zoeb. He makes the process so easy. Especially when it's stressful trying to get out of town, to begin with. The first BMW I rented was a 2 door and I really loved it but this last one was even better. What a responsive, driving machine. His cars are mechanically sound, well-maintained, I feel safe and secure. His BMW's are fantastic, fun and equipped with fast track making it so convenient getting to and from your destination. Zoeb is really helpful, came through for me on a very last minute trip out of town, was flexible when plans changed and I asked for an extension. He is busy but handles everything in stride and makes it all look so easy. I recommend Zoeb and his fleet of cars. He is quick to respond, easy to do business with and reasonably priced.

My husband and I have rented from Ramsey multiple times, and every time is a great experience. The M6 was especially fun and luxurious for a weekend on the coast, and we would highly recommend the car — and any Turo car rental experience working with Ramsey.

The car was clean ! I love how there were a kid booster & phone charger which not all car provide! Drop off & pick up was fast and easy ! Very understanding and accommodate with your schedule if you want to extend your trip! Car works great also ! Will looking forward working with them again if I need a rental again!

One of the best rentals I've had with turo. The contact was prompt and very responsive, super flexible and easy to work with. The car itself is just fantastic! It drives really well, there's tons of room and it's in mint condition. Plus there's a sunroof! :-) I will definitely consider renting this car again.

Thanks for so much Ramsey! From the beginning Ramsey was very helpful and courteous. I was planning a trip to Yosemite with my friend, and his Mercedes Slk looked perfect for our road trip. As a first-time Turo renter, I had a few questions about the service, and how it worked. Ramsey started off the trip with great communication of where to pickup the car, and how Turo worked. It is really similar to any car rental agency, just a lot simpler and faster. When I pickup up the car, I was surprised how new it seem, like it just came off the showroom. Ramsey showed me around the car and explained all the features, and we were off for an adventure. I will definitely look for this car for my next rental/road trip. Finally we headed back, and the car drop off couldn't have been easier. Ramsey sent me the directions, and I basically just locked up the car and was done. Overall a great experience, Turo is definitely on to something with great cars like these at good prices, especially compared to Hertz. Furthermore, Ramsey is an excellent host that answered all my questions and made this the best rental. I definitely recommend renting from him!

Michael was absolutely amazing to work with and in regards to communication. Definitely recommend any type of rental with him!! Now for the car, amazing! Not much more to say to that. If you want to live the fantasy of having more money in your bank account than you do, definitely rent his Porsche Boxster
Melissa M. - January 7, 2020

Great guy! Had to make a change in the pickup time and despite a small hiccup with the check-in process Nitesh was able to accommodate me. As someone mentioned, there is more than 150k mikes and it shows; however, I didn’t give me any issues traveling from San Jose to SF to Sonoma and then back. Averaged a little over 30mpg so that was a plus. At the end of the day, it’s no EVO so for those saying there’s no torque.. duh? All in all, it was great for a quick trip on a budget. Would rent again!
Jason T. - February 14, 2020

This has been by far the best renting experience i’ve had. Joshua was very helpful and provided great detailed information. The car was a blast, convenient to rent, and very well maintained. It even comes with a very generous 300 miles! I highly recommend renting from Joshua.

We had an amazing experience driving Faizal's Maseratti. Took it to Monterey, Big Sur and back. It was a trip to remember, we had so much fun driving the car along the coast. The car was a really good choice, it sounds awesome, has lots of power and very luxury ride. Communication was very easy with Faizal, he would replay within minutes answering any questions we would have. Great service, would definitely rent this car from Faizal again.

Maserati Quattroporte 2015
This. Car. Is. Amazing. I’ve driven a lot of cars on Turo and this one is my new favorite dream car. The sounds. Oh, the sport mode sounds. It’s like a different car in sports mode with the magnetic suspension. The car is so much fun I used up all the miles that Faizal provided! It is a blast in all the roads that I took it to. If you are looking to rent a fun, fast, and sexy car on Turo, this is the one! Also, the renting experience with Faizal couldn’t have been easier. The accommodations for trip time changes were simple! I wanted to rent the car for one more day (I love this car!) and it was so easy to arrange a new drop off time. He was easy to communicate and work with and he keeps his beloved Maserati in excellent shape!!! Do yourself a favor and rent this car! It’s really a thing you need to drive to believe.
Romulus M. - October 14, 2019

So this was my first Turo and boy will I say never will I ever rent from any on there rental company again. If they have people like Joshua J helping those seeking to make a trip or just try out a car before they buy or just want to drive something different, I’ll say my experience was awesome. Joshua Scion FRS was amazing! Great car and well maintained. Not only was the car also a low mileage vehicle it also gave me a good amount of mileage for a amazing price. Also the vehicle was super good on gas and was still able to give me a sporty feel. Will say that Joshua is a hero! Long story short he was basically the key to making my trip possible and also helped me out towards the end which was crucial in me making it on time to my flight. Will definitely look to renting in the future from him and I will 100% recommend him to anyone.

Kieran’s Model S is well taken care of and was a great way to visit our grandparents who are out of town. We’d definitely consider renting from Kieran again but would make sure the pick up and drop off are in the same location (our mistake!)

It was a clean car. I saw the owner carefully managing it in the garage. Although there was a screen pause error on Model 3, Autopilot made driving convenient throughout the trip. It was good that the owner tried to help me in the situation of the problem.

The car is an absolute beast, the perfect top down experience to drive in California. The unlimited mile option is what sealed the deal for me, as I took a road trip to LA and back on the Pacific Coast highway. Ramsey was a good host, pickup and dropoff were easy. I realised the car had some issues while driving, but I called Ramsey and we took care of it right away so it didn't cause much of a headache. Overall I would 100% recommend renting this car, there are few experiences like it.

This car was such a pleasure to drive for the week! Loved everything about it. Got so many compliments and my friends loved the convertible feature (Especially the neck warmers!) Loved the fact that you could see the song selection and speed on the screen projection feature I thought that was the icing on the cake. Not to mention a quick response rate and great communication from Ramsey’s end. Pickup and drop off was a breeze. It literally made my trip so special and I would definitely rent it again no questions :) LOVED IT.

Ramsey's M6 convertible was the perfect way to enjoy my birthday! I grabbed some friends and we spent the day cruising down highway 1 with the top down. I recommend keeping all the windows up if you are driving over 35~ mph, it keeps the wind on your head and out of your face. Also, the heated seats, amazing sound system, and other BMW tech just made the trip that much better.

Highly recommend this car and owner.

Renting from Duk was awesome. His communication during the transaction was instantaneous. His Audi was very clean, and it came with some small essentials such as a phone holder. The pickup was very convenient. The car was left at the pickup site an entire day before my rental day began. I would rent from Duk again anytime i'm in his area, and I would most certainly recommend him to others. Thanks Duk for an awesome experience.
