By my education, I'm a mechanical engineer and I used to sell the cars from some California dealerships, so I've tried a lot of different cars in my life. In my middle 50-th, I know a lot about people and cars, so I decided to give people ability to drive only the cars that I'm counting the best on the USA market for everyday commute by efficiency, durability, and longevity.
Last year I started Turo business which I like to do and it helps me to earn some extra money in order to pay off my cars - it works for me.
Turo is a great way to try the car before you are going to buy one. I can give you advice from an engineering point of view, don't hesitate to ask. Actually, I 've written a book about how to buy a car at the dealership and earn a couple grants for yourself. http://www.coolfeature4home.com/ibooks-from-our-ceo/english-edition/
