Turo Scams And Auto Buyer Struggles: An Automotive YouTuber’s Busy Life

Tyler Hoover’s Apology, Sale, Warning to Turo Renters

Hoovie’s Garage may be the most foolish car channel out of all the ones on YouTube according to Tyler Hoover himself. Nevertheless, Hoovie demonstrates that he runs an accountable channel, even when confronted with rental rip-offs and his own shortcomings.

Formerly employed as a dealer of second-hand motor vehicles, Hoovie capitalised on his expertise by procuring a Mercedes-Benz SL500 Silver Arrow, a red Cadillac CTS-V Wagon for one of his returning customers and YouTuber collaborator LegitStreetCars and making amends concerning an agreement he had recently brokered involving a 1969 Citroen ID19.

Tyler’s most recent experience with a vehicle rental may give others an insight into how to steer clear of any potential Turo deceptions in the future. Not exclusively that, yet his episode can also be seen as a wisdom from which all can gain.

In the Car Wizard’s workshop, Hoovie encountered his fellow car-enthusiast YouTuber, LegitStreetCars. The ordeal of the earlier bought CL65 AMG from Hoover had yet to be processed, however LegitStreetCars was still optimistic that the CTS-V’s LS6 powerplant would perform optimally. The Car Wizard indicated other probable issues but they were considered minor in nature.

Hoovie’s objective of providing cars for sale in an optimum state of working order persisted after the buyer who purchased the Silver Arrow returned from a run. He re-emphasized the necessity of verifying that the roof operated accordingly. Possessing the honours of being the lucky customer’s first car, Hoovie could not help but feel a certain amount of personal satisfaction with the fact it was the SL500.

Likewise, Hoovie’s grandmother’s SL was the very first car he had ever owned. More than a sentimentally-valued item, it remained essential for Hoovie to honor his current consumers’ decisions just how he does those of his past providers.

Hoovie issued an apology to the previous Citroën ID19 vendor from a previous episode. As had been made evident, the ID19’s peculiar Parisian craftsmanship produced leakages of all sorts of liquids. Hoovie did not contact the car seller in advance of investigating issues with the Car Wizard. But, the seller desired to do something to make amends, and perhaps disclose particulars that the Car Wizard and Hoovie had no knowledge of.

The mechanic at the Car Wizard was not expected to interfere with the liquid-filled well, since this component serves the purpose of preserving fluid. As these components are being substituted in any case, Hoovie’s expression of remorse to the prior Citroën proprietor hopefully helps improve understanding between the two.

By way of divergence, Hoovie’s recent excursion to Las Vegas with a Turo host presented him with a different set of circumstances. The visit was to shoot footage with Shelby American and as part of the arrangement he sourced a manual Dodge Challenger Hellcat through Turo, a platform accustomed to renting cars that would satisfy even the most discerning auto enthusiast.

The Hellcat cost an astounding $240 for a two-day period, with an extra pickup fee of $100 as well as a $96 protection charge. There were a variety of other expenses such as a tour fee of $34.16 and additional driving charges of $127.20; however, the final damage expense of $48 escalated the entire sum to an outrageous $751.34.

The owner of the Hellcat asserted that the scratches on the door handle opening and the front fender had been inflicted by Hoovie, whose account insisted that it was due to a crash. Curiously, however, the front splitter stayed intact. Turo subsequently retracted Hoovie’s negative review for the proprietor and supported the payout for the inflicted damage.

Luckily, the price was only set at $48, but there certainly is an underlying problem with the fraudulent claims being presented through Turo. As numerous other people have fallen victim to this swindle, one can only hope that Turo will soon deal with this issue. Thankfully, Hoovie – the ultimate motoring platform – is potentially bringing understanding and ensuring future renters make sensible decisions.
