In addition to meeting Turo’s vehicle eligibility, maintenance, and other hosting requirements, hosts whose vehicles are registered in the state of Maryland must comply with Maryland’s peer-to-peer car sharing law as follows.
You are prohibited from sharing a vehicle on Turo that is more than 10 years old unless you have first obtained a valid state inspection certificate within 90 days prior to listing your vehicle. You must obtain a valid state inspection certificate at least once for every 10,000 miles added to your odometer since the issuance of your prior state inspection certificate.
When you list a vehicle, you’ll be required to submit the car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). If our system finds that your vehicle has an open safety recall, you’ll be unable to list the car on our platform until you’ve made the necessary repairs. We recommend waiting at least 30 days after the repair before you try relisting the vehicle. That’s because it takes up to 30 days for the recall repair to register on databases countrywide. If you receive notice of a safety recall for a vehicle you already have listed on Turo, you must remove the vehicle as soon as practicably possible, but no later than 72 hours after receiving the safety recall. You must not relist your vehicle until the repair has been made. If you receive a safety recall notice while your vehicle is in possession of your guest, you must immediately notify Turo and your guest of the recall as soon as possible, but in no event later than 72 hours from receiving the notice. You must not relist your vehicle until the recall notice has been addressed.
