The car drives smooth, Junjian kept the car clean and was very responsive. Had no problems during my trip. The car is a bit old so there is no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, you can still use voice navigation via Bluetooth.

I 100% recommend renting this Tesla if you’re in the San Francisco area. Daniel had everything set up for us and was quick to respond to any questions we may have had. The car itself was clean and had plenty of space for the group of 4 of us.

Perfect Turo experience. John had the car parked/charging and ready for us at SFO early in the morning the day after Christmas. The car is super clean, everything in top shape. It was such a luxury to avoid the SFO rental center, and we saved a few bucks. Highly recommended.

Tesla Model Y 2021

Cory is very nice, accommodating and easy to work with. We communicated via TURO messaging, text messages and phone well, and Cory always replied promptly. Pick-up/drop-off at San Francisco airport is very convenient for travelers. The vehicle is a very new 2021 TESLA Model Y. I was told that it was delivered just three weeks ago before I rented it. It only had 16XX miles when I picked up the car. I rented it for five days on the Thanksgiving weekend mainly for a long trip from the Bay Area to L.A. and back. I always wanted to get extended driving experiences with a TESLA, and I enjoyed this trip and driving this Model Y tremendously. The Model Y is an E-car SUV but it drives and handles like a supercar, in particular with the 21-inch rims and very low-profile tires on this Model Y. The power and acceleration are always there whenever needed. It's also very easy and safe to drive with all the sensors/cameras and safety features. I hardly used the brakes on my entire trip because the car brakes automatically as soon as the acceleration pedal is released. The console screen looks a little complicated and intimidating at first glance, but actually it's pretty easy to operate after doing a little study and watching short tutorial videos. And voice commands are always there. I want to share my experience with charging this vehicle: First of all, you need to understand there are three types of TESLA superchargers: v1, v2 and V3. In general, V2 and V3 superchargers are 3-4 times faster than V1 chargers, so whenever possible use V2 and/or V3 superchargers. Although TESLA says basically all superchargers are billed for each kWh of electricity used, in reality V1 chargers in urban area cost more or a lot more than V3 chargers in rural area. A lot of superchargers in urban area are still V1 chargers, but there are also quite a few free V2/V3 chargers in rural area. Also, in general in CA, nighttime charging fees (7PM-10AM) are 50% off daytime (10AM-7PM) charging fees. And in some areas nighttime charging is completely free. TESLA navigation map has information on the type of superchargers as well as the charging fees for each supercharger station. Just click on the supercharger station location on the map to see the details. The charging cost for my 1129-mile trip is ~$75, which includes the $25 EV recharge fee I paid in advance. It's very close to the 100miles/gal equivalent gas mileage TESLA advertised. The charging range for this model Y is limited to 300 miles per full charge. But in reality, with a V2/V3 supercharger, it can add 160-180 miles in a 15-20 minutes' charge and that's usually all you need to continue your trip before another 15-20 minutes' charge is needed. If you're planning for a long trip, use TESLA's navigation map to plan for the trip and it will show where you need to stop for a supercharger along the way. Although it's convenient to use the TESLA on-board navigation map to plan for a trip and for supercharger locations, don't trust it entirely for supercharger locations--I learned this the hard way: On my way back from LA, Tesla brought me to a supercharger station that's not in operation in Santa Maria, and I couldn't find a nearby supercharger station from Tesla's navigation map for the < 30 miles left on the battery. It turned out that the supercharger station in Santa Maria was newly built but not yet open to the public. Luckily, I was able to find a destination charger in a hotel's parking lot 5 miles away and use Google Map to find a supercharger station ~25 miles away from there. (Also, Google Map did not show any supercharger in Santa Maria.) So, I drove to the hotel and used the destination charger to add ~15 miles for a total of ~43 miles on the battery, and then it's safe to drive to the supercharger 25 miles away. So, this lesson tells me that Google Map has more accurate info. on superchargers than Tesla itself. Better double-check with Google Map for insurance. One more thing to be aware of is if you're like me who likes to press the acceleration pedal hard, you should take 15-20% off the TESLA-estimated mileage left on battery. Again, it has been a very pleasant and enjoyable experience both driving this Tesla Model Y and doing business with Cory. For sure I will rent it again in the future when I need it (before getting a Tesla of my own).

This was my first Turo rental but will not be my last. The car was in great shape and was a lot of fun to drive. Daniel had everything arranged perfectly which made for a convenient pick up and return to valet lot near SFO. He also contacted me during the rental to help with with a problem that I inadvertently created with the car that caused it to limit the speed to 70. I highly recommend this car and Daniel if you are in the market for a nice Tesla in the San Francisco Bay area.

Sergei and his Model Y was the best car rental experience I have ever had. He was easy to contact, super efficient and helped during some unforeseen circumstances. The car was perfectly clean, super easy to pick up and drop off. I couldn't recommend renting from Sergei more. 10/10. Will rent from Sergei every time I am in SF.

Great ride! We rented for three days and had a great time with the car. First time riding a Tesla and loved it. Very smooth ride, falcon wings were cool although can get a little tricky at times when close to other objects. Ramit was a great host. Very friendly and helpful. Car was clean and in top condition. I would highly recommend!

Tesla Model Y 2020

Daniel was great and responsive to all my questions. I’ve had friends use Turo but it was my first time and a practically perfect experience thanks to him. Test driving a Tesla isn’t comparable to actually living with it for a few days. The opportunity gave me a greater understanding of my own driving style/habits and what I want & enjoy most in driving. It’s a weird little thing, but I appreciated most that there was a puffs tissue box in the front console and quick app access. It gave me time to be leisurely with the learning curve. The only thing (which has nothing to do with Daniel) is that I got rushed at pickup and drop off of the car. So doing the precheck sign in through the turo app with multiple pictures slipped my mind. I highly suggest you don’t let them make you feel rushed to leave until you finish doing the pre & post check. If you’ll be in San Francisco, the best charging stations were the ones in presidio and a quick top off in Serramonte before returning it to the park n fly and our flight from SFO. I can’t wait to come back and rent this again ^.^ it really made our trip more fun & completely worth finding better places to park around the city.

Jan is a terrific host. Car was clean. He was punctual. Had near real time response time. This was my first Turo rental. If I ever rent again I’d go straight to Jan Christian. Also super convenient for folks in San Francisco. Highly recommend this host if you’re looking for a model X and have family in town.

Due to inclement weather my family’s travel arrangements were put in flux and I was able to communicate with Ramit to return the car earlier in the am. We love the car. It was clean and in perfect working condition for our family. Such a cool experience for annual holiday trip.

Had a great winter trip to Yosemite in Sasha’s model Y. I love when hosts are readily accessible at pick-up time – in our case he answered our question in the Turo app immediately and got us on our way. The car is in great shape and the battery held 300 miles in Trip Mode. It’s in a convenient pick up location in a surface lot, so no garages or parking attendants to interface with. Will happily rent this great car again!

I had a few questions along the trip and Minh was very responsive. I will ABSOLUTELY rent again from Minh, either this one or another was on his fabulous cars.

I really enjoyed the overall experience. Ramit was on time for arrivals and departure at SFO which was worth the extra $80 since I was with a person with physical challenges. The car was clean and topped up. I found the car rental was better than a test drive since you can run it through the paces of an average day and also try out the charging challenges for longer trips. I can see how the more you use the car, the more features you'll discover and operationalize. The gull wings are a crowd pleaser and eye turner. I loved the experience so much that I am considering a purchase. Highly recommended!
