Okay, Uber sent out an email that for just $20 you can get your vehicle inspected. So I know that is the cost. I showed up at recommended location. Requested testing, 10mins after I got a bill for $45, The guy showed me the website and said Uber said for up to $40. I ask him, why didnt I just go to my Auto mechanic buddy to fill out the form for me? This is CRAZY, I wasnt yet ready to dish out $45 bucks.

Vehicle Inspection: was I just ripped off?
Yes, you were. Regardless of how much you paid. With current fare rates and ridiculous 1.5$ SRF Uber should be cover any extra expenses, such as vehicle inspections, primary vehicle insurance, etc, etc.

That is a weird question to ask, especially after the fact. First of all, why didn't you really go to your mechanic for this? Secondly, why didn't you ask about the cost before committing to the inspection?

Finally, I always advise to anyone about this: don't go and pay extra for inspection. Instead, include your inspection into your regular service, like I did at my Acura dealership where I service my car. The service code included all of the inspections required by Uber, so I did not pay one more extra dollar for it.

In Minneapolis we have a short list of "approved" sites we can take our cars to.
Wow, sounds fishy. When I hear "approved list only", I immediately arrive to "kickbacks".

My mechanic completed mine when he did some work.

People were. Saying Glenn Carine and Dufferin Midas was 20 dollars but they clearly were against the inspection and would only book weeks in advance. I guess they don't think there is any money for checking out safety inspections.

They know what uber drivers make. They know what ever they find the driver won't have money to repair.

The thing is why are we suppose to pay this inspection fee?
Because it's a requirement to provide one to Uber and Uber sets it your responsibility to arrange one. As it was discussed here, it's not necessary to pay. You can get your mechanic or dealer sign the inspection form when they make a routine inspection during one of the services. That way you don't have to pay extra. That's what I and many others did.

Is not UBER should pay ???
Yes, they should. But they won't.

We as drivers are already been so exploited and pissed off and practically getting not as much as they show
Yes. This is a universal truth. You just reiterated it. Or, perhaps, you had another point?
