Kent was so helpful throughout my entire rental of his unbelievably amazing Porsche 911 convertible. Everything was so effortless - he delivered my car on time AND even dropped me off at airport - what service!!
Shelby - July 25, 2019
Renting Kent's Porsche 911 was a dream come true. The car looks amazing and sounds even better. I hope Kent's 911 is available next time I'm in SF, hard to imagine a better experience at this price.

Fantastic rental. Tony could not have been a better host. Car was in great condition. We had a blast lapping the bay area with the roof down and stopping at various attractions.
Simon - August 21, 2019
Tony is very pleasurable to work with! Obviously, owning a rental company is a lot of work, but, god forbid there are any hiccups tony is very accommodating! I would rent with Tony again!

Mike
BMW Z4 2009
Janet's Z4 was a wonderful car. It has great handling and is a fun car to drive. The car is a little older but is in great condition, looks wonderful, and drives firm (like a sports car should). The convertible is wonderful for driving around California. The pickup at SFO was smooth and easy using valet service. The drop off was even more smooth since it happened that Janet's husband was at the airport when we were leaving so we drove up, greeted him, grabbed our bags and walked into departures terminal. This was our first experience using Turo and we will definitely do it again based on such a wonderful experience with Turo and flawless experience with Janet and her Z4.

Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Ali’s Boxster was a blast. It’s beautiful, new, and clean. Very good for leisurely drives down twisty mountain roads in the area. Just be conscious of your mileage, because it’s tempting to drive this car everywhere. Weekly rate was quite reasonable. Ali was also great to work with, and he has a number of other Porsche on Turo. Would definitely rent from him again!

Davy was very communicative, friendly, and accommodating...which made the logistics for picking up and dropping the car off completely painless. The car itself is a joy to drive...I loved putting the top down to soak in the California sun, listening to the turbo charged engine purr while driving on the winding route 1. 11/10, I’ll definitely rent from Davy again.

This was my first Turo rental. Adam was very patient with changes to pick up time and adding driver. The “Stang” was totally cool, lots of compliments on the car. Small problem with oil warning light, but all cool. Mostly I wanted to take care of this great car. Mother/daughter trip. . . Awesome. It has almost 130,000 miles but it was a blast to drive. Thanks Adam.

Marissa
Porsche 911 2000
Peter’s Porsche was a blast! Perfect car for taking a trip up to Northern California where the roads really beg for a car like this. The reservation went very smooth and Peter was incredibly accommodating and communicative. There are a couple small quirks with the car but Peter explained them all during the hand off so there were no surprises during my trip. As an added bonus Peter included an extensive CD collection of rocking oldies since there is no Bluetooth or aux port on the stereo. There was plenty of room for two adults, and for short jaunts the back seat is totally serviceable. We had carry on bags (no checked luggage) and there was no trouble fitting everything in the car. I would highly recommend this car to any one looking to add a little extra fun to their vacation- it kept a smile on my face for the whole drive!

Michael
Porsche 911 2013
Had a great experience renting Malcolm's car. I'm in the market for a 911 and since I was visiting family near SFO it was a perfect opportunity to get a multi-day test drive in. The Turo lot pick up and return is convenient. With other Turo rentals in the past it's been a bit of a finagling to figure out how to give the car back and there was none of that here.

Mazda MX-5 Miata 2012
Terrific experience with Mario and his Miata. Clear, responsive communicator and flexible in terms of reservation logistics. The car itself is a delight and mechanically sound, and so much fun to motor in! The power retracting hardtop provides the best of both top-down joyriding and security/protection.
Jonathan N. - August 12, 2019
Renee
Chevrolet Camaro 2014
I chose the airport pick-up/drop off but Jorge offered to drop it off at our hotel which was awesome. Since it was a physical key exchange, I was worried about the convenience of just dropping off the car. But Jorge made the drop off very smooth and easy. I sent him a message that I will be returning the car early and when I got back to the hotel, he was already there. He also pointed out the existing dents and scratches in the car and made sure we took pictures of it. The Camaro was amazing to use in our trip down to Big Sur. Jorge and his Camaro is highly recommended!
Renee C. - August 13, 2019
Tilton
Porsche 718 Boxster 2017
Rented the car for a trip down to Monterey for an engagement celebration. We took the 1 down and then took skyline back. The heated and cooled comfort seats were very much appreciated. Power top was awesome. Storage space was perfect for a short trip. I loved the bark that the car has upon start up (makes me wonder about the inline 6). Malcom was really responsive and pick up and return were effortless. My only gripe is really with Turo: I could only open the driver side door via the app so I always had to get in to open the other door (not to mention the boot/trunk). Full Keyfob functionality was missed at times. Not sue if I just needed to hold it or tap unlock multiple times. Otherwise, the car was a ton of fun and quite comfortable once on the road! Thanks for an awesome experience.

Trevor was extremely communicative and accommodating. He is a great host, and he has an awesome car. The Viper is a hoot to drive, and appreciate him for letting others experience a car unlike any other. Was surprised how solid these 1st generation Vipers are, and while it has quirks and qualms, it is a high performance car from the 90s and was nothing unexpected. If you are in the San Francisco area for a day or two, I highly recommend the Viper for some highway cruising or open country roads.
