Renting out your Tesla on Turo is a bad idea, did the math..

For those reading about speeding stories, owners can set the max speed of the vehicle via the app. Now preventing drug dealers is a whole different story.

If you set the max speed in the app, it also limits the acceleration to something roughly equivalent to chill.

Renters may not be happy with that.

I think this depends who's renting.

I came from a Prius and I rented the SR+ through Turo just to try it out. I didn't know what "CHILL" on the display meant at the time (I do now!) but I thought it wasn't bad. The reality is that these cars are faster than 90% of vehicles on the road, even the SR+ on chill mode.

I'll never understand why some people care so much about what someone else does with their personal property.

I wont rent mine out on Turo for a myriad of reasons that have either already been covered here or will bore someone to death but I'm not about to tell someone else what they should or should not (in this case) do with their car.

Tell ppl what not to do is sth I hate every time people rent my car.
