Great car! It was nice being able to drive a BMW while on vacation given that I drive one at home each day. Aleksandar was great - on time and communicated well when needed. The car is quite nice and well taken care of. Looking forward to working with Aleksandar again!

Communication was very clear, and the car has been super reliable over a trip of 4000 miles! I haven't had a single problem. I would definitely recommend hiring from Stuart!
Daan - October 19, 2019
Stuart was communicative, punctual, friendly and really cared about making sure I had a reliable car and good rental experience. He drove hours out of his way to resolve a maintenance issue (warning light on in car; nothing was wrong with its operation) without inconveniencing me. Highly recommend!

Charles went the extra mile. After the trip he drove us home, and we had a great chat. His cars are very clean and well serviced. Overall he runs his little Turo operation like a real business; if you’re looking for a rock solid experience renting a car without all the hassle and with better service than an actual car rental company, look no further.

Robert was timely and communicative, and since it was an electric car rental, he was thorough with instructions on how the vehicle performs and how to use charging to its potential. He is the type of Turo car owner that you want to rent from. Conveniently located near Washington Dulles airport, too.

It was an absolute pleasure renting Jeff’s GT350. Jeff was flexible and accommodating throughout the entirety of the rental. Furthermore, Jeff is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about his GT350, and he’ll make you want to go straight to the dealer to pick up your own Shelby. I highly recommend Jeff and his fantastic GT350!

We flew in on Christmas Eve. Our flight was delayed twice and Nexuz was super flexible and nice about it! The car was clean and smelled good on the inside. The amount of miles he offered for the amount of time we were here was fabulous! We were able to drive from DCA up to Pennsylvania to visit family and come back. The car ran well. The price of this car was about half of the cost of the rental cars we were finding online (about a week before our flight) for the same time and area. It was a great experience overall.

This trip I had the vehicle for an extended amount of time. Mariano was very communicative. He even asked for the car to be brought in before my extended road trip to be certain all fluids were at an optimal level, plenty of air in the tires and to be sure I had no challenges with the vehicle. Yes for safety first! Thank you for everything!

Logan is awesome and very responsive. This Toyota Corolla is basically a self driving car that has steering assist which was so helpful to my drive on the highway. Cruise control features allow you to move in stop and go traffic without having your foot on the gas so it’s a smooth ride for everyone. Make sure you take advantage of all the great features. The car was in like new condition. You can use Bluetooth to connect your phone to the music. Also has SiriusXM. Also great price. Will def rent again 10/10.

I really enjoyed my Turo rental and look forward to my next rental experience. Check him out!!!

Sandwiched between my two business days in Washington D.C. area were several days off just before the Labor Day weekend that I wanted to spend with my wife and in-laws who were on a family reunion in Vermont. Since I had already placed an order for a Tesla Model 3 Performance car, this trip was a perfect opportunity to rent a similar Model 3 and see how it feels on a long trip to and from Vermont. Shane's car performed marvelously and I was happy beyond compare. My family members were equally impressed by it, asking questions and looking forward to my own car's delivery back in LA. Having seen, read and followed Model 3 reviews and articles over the last couple of years, I was already familiar with its features when I rented the car, so it was a natural transition for me. The long trip (>500 miles one way) was truly enjoyable in both rain and shine. The car was equipped with the E-ZPass device which helped a great deal on numerous toll roads. Tesla Supercharger stops were opportunities to rest or explore new places and meet new people, especially other Tesla owners and enthusiasts. Shane also provided an extension cord and an adapter so I could charge the car's battery from a regular AC outlet at the remote Vermont farm. He was a very thoughtful host and committed to me having the best experience possible with his incredible car.

Kimberly
Ford Fusion 2014
I absolutely love this car! The best part was it being a hybrid it was my first time driving one and I absolutely love it. The car itself is really nice the huge plus was the fact I had it for 8 days and I did a lot of driving but the gas held so well I literally only put gas the day before I took it back to have it on full! That’s impressive especially because the amount to fill it up was little to nothing compared to most cars. I will definitely be renting again!
