    Ok so at the risk (and I suppose expectation) of getting completely annihilated for this... Has anyone ever bought a car from Carvana, either for delivery or out of their vending machine? Because I'm about to do it and this is my last chance to get talked off the ledge 😂

    I want to buy a car and do the insurance. I live in Voughan. I talked to the insurance company and told him I wanted to buy a Toyota Rav 4 Hybrid. They told me that I have to pay $ 500 a month, because I have less than a year to drive and when the car is new the insurance becomes full. My...

    Hey, so I want to finance a new car and transfer over my TLC plate to the new car. However, from previous experience, I know that TLC Inspection at woodside used to take months to schedule an inspection date. Given, no more new TLC cars can be registered in the city, does it have any impact on...

    If I add a different car to my FUber account and get it inspected, will I still get rematches even though the new car doesn't yet have a TNC windshield sticker? If so, does the Port require a TNC sticker for rematches regardless? Will FUber apply for the new car's TNC sticker on my behalf (as...

    Hi guys! I just traded my car for a brand new 2019 Niro Hybrid and I don't drive often, but like to just for a bit of extra money on the side of my real job. I'm confused about the inspection sticker, because since it's a new car, it doesn't need inspection for 2 years. Can I still drive...

    Hello guys, I am going to buy a new USED car to do Uber Full time in Seattle, my old car was an inexpensive 2012 Ford Fiesta that I got for like 7000$ earlier this year, but I got into an accident and James River Totalled it, so it's time to get a new car. Everybody I meet tells me to get a...

    That's about all of it. If I click on my photo I can update my personal info. Clicking on the car photo with license plates showing does nothing. Would some-one please walk me thru it?

    Hi Uber people. I am new in Uber. I have a question which most of you might know. I will rent for a few weeks. I am making the math how long should I consider to rent before I use my own car which I just bought. I have to wait for the registration as a temporary registration is given by the...

    I have read a million posts that say buying a new car for uber is stupid. I haven’t found a situation that is exaclty like mine though. I currently have a 2007 Camry with 181,000 miles on it. It has been well taken care of, and everything works minus a few details. It burns a little extra oil...

    Just curious how it's working out for drivers with premium cars; is there much of a market or are you doing mostly Lyft & Uber X runs?. Here's my context, I'm getting ready to buy a new vehicle (I need..ok ok I want... one anyway, NOT specifically for ride share). I'm debating between my...

    Has anyone ever bought a new car solely for Uber and earned enough to make the payment (and then some) working part time? I'm seriously considering this but not sure if it's a wise investment. I welcome any input.

    Hello uber people!! It's my first night starting uber driving and wanted to know when and where are good times to be in certain places. I won't be able to be in town till 5pm or so and figured that downtown around the river would be a good place to start. If anyone has any info about ubering...

    Yesterday i signed the papers for a new 2017 Nissan Versa S+. I have two questions. What can i use in place of the registration? I know the website says i may use the "temporary registration" however i am unsure what that is. The vehicle was sold to me brand new by a manufacturer endorsed...

    Had a pax last night who works for a Honda dealership. He told me I should buy a new CRX for Uber. I said, "why would I do that?" He said because then I could do Uber XL. Idk what XL rates are but it's hard to believe they would justify buying a brand new car. But according to this guy, he's...

    Hello everyone, I am looking to buy a new car to drive for Uber, preferably something that would fit both Uber Select and UberXL. There are a couple of SUVs with a pair of extra seats in the back that would fit both categories perfectly, but I would also like to get your opinion on this. Which...

    I do not have a car yet and so I am weighing my options. Should I rent the vehicles I see on the Uber affiliate sites? They can be almost 450 a week! That's $1800 a month! <<< freekin' nuts! My other option is to buy a vehicle that's less than 30k and use that for rideshare driving. The...

    See lots of drivers all over driving new Honda Accords, Highlanders etc. After financing these cars are very expensive (25 to 40k)... Just refuse to get stuck with some car I bought solely to Uber with. Saw a 2012 Impala with 80k for $4700, just seems more logical to keep overhead under 1k a...

    Afternoon All, I wanted to know if there are anu under 25's on here? Also if anyone can recommend an insurance provider? Best quote at the moment I have got is from Acorn Insurance for around £4000. I have got a 2011 Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 CDTI Aged 22.
