The car is in showroom condition. Weather delays caused changes to my pickup day/time, but Darrell was there when I ultimately arrived. Darrell and his brother were both friendly and courteous.

If there were 6 stars... I would give it a 6. I would highly recommend anyone in the Bay Area who is a fan of EVs and needs a car for any occasion to rent from Daniel! Let’s start with the car! This was a new model 3, with all the bells and whistles anyone could possibly need. It is in pristine condition and extremely clean. It does not feel like you are renting someone else’s car. Daniel was on time and in fact early to hand to car to me, and was very flexible on the return. As long as you inform him of your itinerary, you can be sure he will accommodate you! Perfect for my business trip! He was also really informative to anyone not familiar with his car. I’ve rented a bunch of model 3s now but no one else on turo has ever introduced me to the car as he has. What this means is that you don’t have to be familiar to EVs to rent his car. Daniel supplies all the necessary charging adapters and helps you get acquainted with the car! All in all, I would rent from him anytime! And as for the cool factor... you really can’t beat having a model 3 in the Bay Area!

Eidref was good to text and update app communication. Car was as expected. Easy to park tiny car, everything works. It’s not new but knew that going in, I would recommend. I’m 6’-3” and had enough room to operate. Only thing was key lock box location was non stop issue for wife in passenger seat, need to find a better spot for it. Thanks for the use of your car. Have a good one

First time using Turo and it was a great experience! Phi’s BMW 5 series was very clean and had great handling. I rented the car for our family trip, so we got two car seats for our infant and toddler. They were both super clean and brand new! I would definitely rent from Phi again. He was also easy to communicate with and pick up and return was a breeze!

Raymond was easy to work with and always quick to respond. Loved the Bolt. As someone interested in buying one, it was great to be able to take it on a long-weekend trip with an almost 200 drive to the destination. Used the cord that comes with the car to trickle charge at the destination, so only had to quick-charge at a public charger once on the return trip. Would happily book again!

Porsche 911 2013
GREAT first time Turo experience !!! I see why Kent and his fleet get great reviews. I "rented" Kent's 2013 911 2S cab (991.1) (the brown over grey 911). We had a little bit of communication prior to the rental. I checked with him a few days out to make sure everything was set because I also had a Boxster rented with Hertz. When he said everything was good to go (and there no scheduled rentals between then and when I was to pick up my car on Saturday May 25th) I canceled the Hertz rental. Kent met us at San Jose curbside pickup we loaded our bags and we're on our way to Carmel for a long Memorial weekend. the car had just over 99,000 miles when I pick it up. It is in excellent shape, especially considering the miles and the fact that they had been put on by many different people. There are really no marks in the body and the interior shows only a few minor "scars", probably from people with studded jeans, but overall the car is in super condition. The convertible top shows a few rub marks, which is typical if the roof is put down before it's completely dry. I put just under 800 miles on it in 5 days ... American Airlines canceled my flight on Wednesday so I extended the rental one day (returned today), which fortunately was no problem. The car is a dream to drive ... the majority of mileage that I put on the car (more than 400) was put driving on driving the fun part of Highway 1 ... between Carmel and Cambria. Again, it was a super great experience and a wonderful car and I thank Kent, and would highly recommend renting from him.

Quang was amazing to deal with. Never been to CA before and my flight was bit of a mess and delayed me by 7 hours. He came to pick me up when told him I finally arrived, drove me to another parking lot to do the handover. This is good as don't know the roads around the airport, and accepted I can drop car there upon return he he drive me back to airport. Return we communicated night before and in morning, he was there earlier than needed and we met up and he took me back to the airport in front of the 'Air Canada' doors. Again I wouldn't know my way around the airport road system, but Quang took so much stress off me and was punctual. Awesome host, awesome guy, runs his business professionally. He's my lifetime Turo host for my CA trips.
