This is my first slightly negative Turo experience. Jitesh was great to communicate with from the start and the options for add-on of blow up mattress and Banff park pass were very convenient and appreciated. However- The car was listed with snow tires. I specifically made sure I got a car with snow tires because I knew I would be taking it into the mountains. However I was sliding all over the place (in the city!) and definitely not feeling safe or secure. When I messaged Jitesh about this he said the tires were “M & S” tires which is the minimum required winter tire in Calgary. These tires are for mud and “light snow” definitely not Canadian winter snow conditions. This not considered a winter tire by most standards (and insurance companies) across Canada. Even if this meets the Calgary regulations I don’t think it’s fair that a vehicle can be listed with winter tires if that is not genuinely what it has. I think this is something Turo needs to clarify with its users. Secondly the windshield wipers really need to be replaced. They did not clear the window thoroughly in snowy conditions and I had to pull over several times off the highway. Obviously this did not feel very safe. When I told Jitesh about this he said to “use more windshield washer fluid”. Which of course I did (and entire container in fact). I live in Canada and I know the difference between when more windshield fluid is needed versus when blades are worn out. When worn a blade will not clear window no matter how much fluid you use. This was disappointing and dangerous. Jitesh’s airport pick up and drop off were appreciated.

Jitesh's response

Car is advertised as Mud+Snow rated all-season tires for you to explore as per actual. Renter’s expectations / interpretations were wrong for dry powder very low temperature conditions. Be ready to use lot of windshield wiper fluid too in dry severe mountain weather.

I had previously indicated that the return will be in the SE but wanted to charge me more for it was a bit frustrated. Overall ok

Jitesh was great! Very accommodating with easy pick up and return at the airport. His Equinox was the perfect car for our ski trip.
