Krystian
Hyundai Santa Fe 2011
Had a wonderful time exploring Maui with the car. The 4 wheel drive really saved me when I almost got stuck in sand on a beach. The car preformed really well in the tight roads of Hana with the steep inclines. The glad mileage is one of the biggest pluses of renting this car, the car gets amazing MPG on all the roads and highways. Rafael was an amazing host that picked us up perfectly on time watching the schedule of our landing time. He really made it easy for me as someone who never used Turo. I would recommend getting this car and exploring every road you can on the island of Maui. Thank you Rafael for this amazing experience!

I rented Sabah's jeep to head up north for the week and needed a vehicle that could manage the conditions. It was perfect.

Sabah and Ben were great with their communication, super friendly and quick to reply.

Tesla Model 3 2018
Had to make a trip to Abilene, TX, from Dallas, TX. My customer paid for renta, so I tried a Tesla for a test drive. Happened to be under foul weather, cold and no Supercharger handy conditions. What a great way to wring one out! Discovered nifty tricks re charging and power management. Mischa brought me a really nice clean car in perfect condition. I gave it back to them minus all the road grime and weather related stuff in good condition. Too bad for Turo - I am so very pleased with the Tesla that I am ordering one. But I have passed on Turo info to several friends and the Prius driving LYFT driver who took me home about Turo. Very pleasant experience,
