Anyone else see this guy? I noticed him picking up some people behind me on state by illinois. Me and the pax had a good laugh. I have a picture but cant figure out how to upload from gallery.

Never by brand new. I bought 2016 civic with 18,000 miles on it according to kbb it's supposed to have 22,000 miles

'98? I don't think so. 2002 is the cut-off for uber & 2004 is the cut-0ff for Lyft. Unless the driver photo-shopped the registration & insurance cards. o_O

early 2000's X-type or S-type or XJ Jaguar as a Uber = lmfao. Cuz supposedly those cars are reliability nightmares and probably wouldn't handle the punishment of Ubering.

why worry about him
because I care about the mentally handicapped and want one less homeless person living under Wacker.

Dumb bastard doesn't realize when a gasket blows or transmission fails on his XJ, the repair will eat up all of his Uber profits for the last few months and probably cost more than the value of the car.

Have you ever sat in one of those? The fine leather, OMG it's luxurious. They'll be super comfortable waiting for their tow truck.

Seriously, I know not all Jaguars have issues. But the three people I know who owned one didn't keep them very long.

It's an 02/03 XJ...pre aluminum XJ engine (04). They are mechanically bullet-proof and built like tanks. Less than 5k cost makes for extremely small capital investment vs. comfort and cool factor for PAX. His depreciation cost vs. earnings would be less than most. A decent couple months has it paid for and the rest is gravy. Good on him.
