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.

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.

We had an amazing experience in Edwin’s Hellcat Challenger. Every aspect of the experience was nothing short of perfect. Edwin was extremely responsive and informative.

Dodge Viper 1994
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.
Stephen D. - August 26, 2019

Mario’s car was a lot of fun. We took it into wine country with the top down and had a blast. Be careful to not bring more then one carry on size luggage. It does not fit a regular suit case. Mario was quick to respond and very flexible with pickup. Thank you!

Brent F. - August 23, 2019
Porsche Boxster 2013
Alan and his lovely Porsche was my first Turo experience and what a pleasure! Alan’s car performs flawlessly and is perfect for California and well suited to driving Wine country and the coast which I did. It’s a sports car with low ground clearing so for one not familiar with San Francisco use Uber around the city and save Alan’s car for a trip out of the city. Surprisingly the Boxter with its front and rear boots can hold medium size luggage for 2 providing they are not hard cases which could present problems. Soft luggage is a safe fit for 2 people. Alan is very attentive, accommodating and wonderful to deal with and I look forward to renting his Boxter in the near future.
Rupert G. - August 20, 2019

Had a few hic-cups due to the previous renter oversleeping. Tony was communicative and delivered the car to me. The MX-5 was good.

As a first time Turo user, this experience couldn’t have been better. The location is super close to the airport, making pickup and dropoff a breeze. The car itself was beautiful and truly a blast to drive. Dan was super friendly and accommodating, which really made this rental something special. I would recommend Dan’s Model S to anyone looking to make the best of their time in the area.

Volkswagen Golf R 2018
Car was in its designated spot and was clean, had convenient remote access, and delivered with full tank of gas. The Golf R is fast, handles surprisingly well due to AWD (no torque steer), has a sporty but not too firm suspension. I rented it to get to an offsite with two of my colleagues and the three of us plus our luggage fit comfortably in the car.

My partner and I had such a great experience with the GTI that we're renting it again when we return to SF. The air conditioning is weak, but it wasn't much of a problem since the weather's generally cool this time of year. The staff at populus were extremely helpful and quick to respond to queries too. I strongly recommend renting with them even if you prefer a different car. Looking forward to picking up the GTI in two weeks!!
