Because I just recently bought one.

I just wanna know if there's ever any leeway on cars made before 2000 and this one is just a 1999 model GXE altima.

Doesn't even have any scratches or dents on it.

Is it a no go based on its year?

Uber goes strictly by the year, doesnt matter how many miles are on it. 10 years is the cutoff, so nothing older than 2005. I think its partially for safety purposes and to help them make money off of their vehicle financing program.

Nope! Has to be less than 10 years old.
Only exceptions ever made was on the super expensive cars like Rolls,Bentley or Mercedes.

And cuz it Mpls, the car will have little paint left on it, plenty of rust holes, and a muffler secured by a coat hanger. I know....I lived there. Got tired of replacing exhaust components and watching my cars deteriorate before they hit 200K miles.
I'm rolling a 2005 Malibu.. has one bubble on a dog leg. still under the paint.

but ya, I have seen some junk uber cars.. I have heard "thank god, a nice clean car" more than once. Also many mention I am one of the few native english speaking drivers they have had.

I am amazed some of the cars I have seen have passed the city inspection. They gave me all sorts of shit on mine over brake pads at 30%.. I knew it would be due sooner or later, but 30% is a far cry from worn out. They did pass me but threaten to fail me for "thin" brake pads. I did my brakes yesterday because I had some down time. Still had 5/32's of pad left. they where not even due yet.
