My car has over 120k miles, but I kept the car in really good shape. It's a 2010, I'm the only owner, and it's paid off. I still get compliments on it and people think it's new. Anyway, I was telling a pax how many miles I have on it, and this is the first time someone said it doesn't matter. Well, I've seen a lot of beaters on the road with the Uber "U" badge in the window and wondering "How the Hell...??"
Just wondering how many out there are driving cars with high mileage.

166k miles on a 2006 Acura TL. Retired it from Uber but still running good, eats a lot of gas...overhauled my own ****** late last year, being an ASE certified Master tech and got me a 2013 Prius.

You could probably make more $$$ being a mechanic for UPnet members. Cash only of course

Annual mileage is right at 20k/year with a pretty even 50:50 mix of personal and uber driving.

At 90k total miles now. I started too new at around 30k miles. I wish Id've had the foresight to start ubering in something with 50-80k miles already on the odometer....would've been way farther ahead by this point.
