Ratchai was a great host. He made the whole transaction as smooth and convenient as possible. His Model X was immaculate and a pleasure to drive. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I look forward to my next trip to San Diego when I get to rent this car again.
Thomas - October 24, 2019
I’ve rented previously from Ratchai so I knew what to expect. This time I had a visitor from out of state and wanted to show him San Diego in style. He’s a car enthusiast and has not experienced any of the Tesla models yet. This trip has changed his mind. The Model X is unbelievable, it’s a space ship. Super fun and easy rental! Highly recommended

Sonnys professionalism and his Fleet of Luxury Vehicles has earned my business. Will specifically look at his profile for renting vehicles before else where. He made this trip amazing. Knew so much about his vehicles and I appreciate that being a car salesman. Clean vehicle, quick to reply, super convenient, and is way better to pick up and return compared to the companies available before Turo. You won’t just enjoy the vehicle but the experience he provides is extremely valuable. He accepted my request within the hour. Which made date night even smoother. Couldn’t thank you enough and really enjoyed the conversation we had after the return. Thanks Sonny, see you in a couple weeks!

This was a great Tesla! Drove to L. A. and the Auto pilot really helped. I wasnt as tired with a little help. Very clean, Top of the line 100D and it was super easy to Supercharge at different malls so I can explore for 30 to 45 minutes and go back before its finished. (Tesla charges idle fees if charging is full but still connected) I would definitely rent this again. Very well maintained !!

Sonny responded quickly once I booked the car. We got in a little early and Sonny was able to show up early. He gave us a quick run through of the car and we were off. If you've never driven a Tesla S, you'll want to go through Sonny. This car has the looks and pulls like a f4eight

Rob
Tesla Model S 2015
Sonny was very easy to work with, flexible on the pickup time and location and explained everything about operating the car. The car is very clean and well maintained and drives like a dream! Over 350 miles and only about $27 in costs at the Tesla super charging station to recharge. Keep in mind there is a $25 cleaning fee and no way to avoid it since the custom wrap on the car can not be taken through a car wash. Would definitely rent from Sonny again!!

Wow, what a car! The i8 is unlike anything else I’ve ever driven before. Had such a blast driving through the city and the nearby canyon roads. To make it even better, Shia was the best host. He was early to deliver the car and even came to a different location to pick it up earlier since I had a slight change in plans. He was extremely accommodating and friendly. Honestly I felt like I was just borrowing the car from one of my buddies. Will definitely rent again next time I’m in San Diego!

This was my first Turo experience and John made it incredibly enjoyable and easy. I was flying in for the weekend with odd travel times and he was able to accommodate with a flexible pick up/drop off option. Overall great weekend using his vehicle.

Wow. Just wow. I don’t even know where to begin. Jason is outstanding; the Bentley is cherry and very well-cared for. You can tell he puts a lot of time effort and money into having a prestine fleet. I had some hiccups along the way that were all my fault and Jason went way, way out of his way to help me. Jason goes being being a Turo host- he treated me like family and he has my complete trust. I will absolutely rent again in a heartbeat, the kind of which elevate with a blip of the pedal. If you are on the fence about booking one of his cars, click away with absolute confidence. You’ll be happy Jason crossed paths with you, he is just a great person, period.

Lucy is an excellent host and maintains an impeccable vehicle. The Tesla is in perfect condition and it feels like you just drove it off the showroom floor. The delivery and pick up at my home was the deciding factor in selecting this vehicle over others that we’re available. You will love the car and the experience as Lucy shares not just her vehicle but her passion for Tesla as well.

Best San Diego driving roads

Palomar Mountain Loop

A scenic lookout with plenty of opportunities to stop for photos, start your drive at Lake Henshaw and continue on Highway 76 toward the Palomar Observatory for a side trip.

59 Mile Scenic Drive

Looping through San Diego’s captivating neighborhoods, carve out a day or two to take in the sweeping coastal views and the downtown skyline while making spontaneous stops along the way.

Rim of the World Scenic Byway

For a longer road trip, traverse along this 107-mile route into California’s wilderness toward Big Bear Lake. Remember to stretch your legs at the scenic lookouts along the way.
