Plan to rent cars only for defined local or regional itineraries(ie, driving around to see the sights) in areas with sparse public transport.
However, if you're going from Istanbul to Ankara, go there by public transport and also plan to get around in Ankara by public transport because driving in this big city is difficult and confusing, and parking is a big problem.
If your need for a car is limited to a day or so, consider hiring a taxi instead of driving yourself. Most cities, towns and resorts have taxi groups with set rates for such services as sightseeing tours and point-to-point trips. The cost may be similar to that for a rental car, but without the paperwork, insurance risk, or stress of driving in an unfamiliar car in an unfamiliar country.
