    In my opinion AVOID leasing Mercedes METRIS at all costs. Reason number one. Through Via you will pay $450 a week. If you were driving in the five boroughs you will find it necessary to change the brake pads every seven months. It takes 10 quarts of special oil, So your oil change will be...

    I started hearing the weird brake noise this afternoon. I had to apologize for the rest of the night and assure folks that everything was fine. No warning, nothing. My car only has 25,000 miles!!! Toyota is really going downhill with their quality. Yes, yes, I can already hear the responses...

    Hello, I'm new to Uber (been out driving twice) so forgive me if I sound ignorant at anytime! And also forgive me because I'm sure this question has been answered 1000 times over but I just find it easier to just ask it again rather than search for it, call me lazy! Anyway, I know I'm supposed...

    Uber and Lyft drivers' median hourly wage is just $3.37, report finds https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/mar/01/uber-lyft-driver-wages-median-report Majority of drivers make less than minimum wage and many end up losing money, according to study published by MIT Uber and Lyft drivers...
  5. Los Angeles & Orange County
    I am just wondering if anyone has heard of, or experience with Metrowise. It is a new service offered to Uber/Lyft drivers for maintenance and repairs on their vehicles in the LA area. They just launched this month and it seems too good to be true especially since some of us have older cars...
  6. New York City
    So I been crunching numbers and thinking this over for a while now, and I've decided to come nearly to the decision that owning/financing is better than renting (leasing I'm sure is a monster all by itself and I won't bother with that). Here's what I've deduced thus far. Owning I don't have to...

    1800$ would get me 3-5 sets of tire. Safety rule if there pants does not cover there backside drive off, If there shoes have a hole in them drive off If you call and they answer yo.dawg cancel. If they say they have a medium sized dog that really means they a wild bear wolf dog mix named...

    I need 2 new tires and I was thinking about using the coupon for firestone, not too sure how much wholesale tires are though so I can't really figure out how much it will be to get 2 new tires. Dealer was trying to rip me off as usual. Anyone have any experience?
  9. San Francisco
    I recently decided to give the Uber support phone line a call in the Bay Area after reading several articles about how Uber was underpaying fares and over-charging riders. The first few rides I decided to look into all had issues, and Uber even changed 2 of them for me. However, after about 4-6...
  10. Baltimore
    It seems like a topic no one talks about on here. The roads in bmore are awful. Since I've started uber like 8 months ago. On average oil change once a month, brakes twice, 80% of my front end replaced tie rod ends, control arm, stabilizer bars, spark plugs, ignition coils, cleaned throttle...
  11. New York City
    im renting a new camry from american lease for 415. old cars are 350, if i remember correctly. i would do it, but i feel that newer cars need less maintenance. maintenance is a hassle. there are rumors that the rental companies make you pay for it. you lose your car while its at the garage...

    Where does everyone get their cars cleaned? Anywhere that has unlimited car washes? What about oil changes and general car maintenance? Share your thoughts please .

    I'm about a month in, and I presume most of the obvious stuff, like GPS error, has been well covered. I have some armchair analysis about this issue: the compulsive need of OSU area pax to slam the door. It's not about anger or dissatisfaction. Using the instant update to the star rating, I...
  14. Dallas
    It's time for UBERSelect drivers to refuse to take UBERXpassengers. We didn't buy our expensive cars, to take cheap fares. UBERBLACK had a strike in Dallas and won! We need to do the same, so all we get is SELECT fares. There aren't enough UBERX drivers in Dallas, that's why UBERSelect...

    Just curious if anyone has used the app Openbay to get service done? Seems like a clever idea and I have a promo code I was going to try.

    The real deal on background checks: The City of Houston, TX has mandatory background checks and fingerprinting for all TNC drivers. Uber and Lyft lost the battle in Austin, TX. Houston has held its ground. However, all cities should enforce all rules and do spot checks. I believe Uber wants...
  17. Raleigh-Durham
    All rideshare companies have zero interest in curbing the excessive deadhead miles. Since it isn't their vehicles getting destroyed and costing them money, they have no incentive to minimize deadhead miles for drivers. I suppose they just hope people are really bad at math or don't keep...
