Sweet! :biggrin: Not to be the downer, but make sure you keep track of all expenses. Some can be difficult to quantify. Fuel is easy but consider wear on tires, depreciation on the car, wear on the interior, potential repairs, etc.
it's a bit easier for full-timers to keep track of expenses since they can attribute most we're on the car to driving Uber. For part-timers, can be more difficult because you're not putting as many miles on the car and some of those miles will be for personal use. But do your best to keep track of those you can make sure you're actually making money. I see some people driving around big SUVs, pickup trucks and BMWs/Mercs and honestly wonder how they're making any money. With the cost of running vehicles like that (fuel or very high cost of operation with German luxury vehicles) and knowing what the rates are, I can guarantee their net profit is going to be pretty darn low.
Chrysler vehicles aren't known for their reliability, though from what I understand parts are relatively inexpensive and they build the Ram, Challenger and Charger with a bit better quality than things like their minivans or entry-level vehicles. Regardless, keep track of all that to make sure you're actually making money.
I'm with you to a degree. I drive an Acura TL which is definitely not the most ideal vehicle for Uber. But it's a Honda product which means it's reliable, the parts are all cheap since it's essentially a glorified Honda, and it does at least get 25 miles to the gallon despite having to use premium. The kicker for me is that since I'm a part-timer, there's no way I could bring myself to drive a Prius. If I had to drive some dinky gutless car I could not bring myself to drive Uber at all. Half the reason I drive Uber is to give me an excuse to drive my car :wink: I also do all my own repairs and maintenance which brings down the overhead costs considerably. So if you find that even driving a "non-ideal" vehicle is still profitable then go for it. Just make sure to crunch the numbers first.
