Is there a market for a luxury car in Sacramento? Has anyone seen them around, taken any, or driven a luxury car? Is it worth it? Anyone know for sure which category the Is250 is under.. Uber black or uberselect? How are the rates between lyft and uber? Please answer any question. Thanks guys!

I don't find it worthwhile to drive my 2013 hybrid that gets 45 miles per gallon. I drove over 1000 miles last week, 49 hours, for $980 in pay. And, Uber screwed me out of my $750 bonus for first 100 trips. **** Uber, I quit! Chewed up my allotted cellular data plan, wearing out my car, dealing with drunk ********(90% of riders) that take $2.00 rides then lower your rating. It's all BS

I drive a 2013 BMw 328i and only drive in the evenings. As for data being used, BS. I tested the waters for a week and I haven't even reached 1 GB of used data. I'm sure whatever I did use was due to YouTube while waiting for a few minutes. It's what you make of the situation and when you get a ping, it'll tell you the location. If I see "club" or "bar" after 11 pm, I'll ignore it because I'm not dealing with some drunk person. Folks at the Thunder Valley casino tend to be folks in their 40's and are fairly responsible when it comes to drinking. Sacramento, K Street, I'll gladly drop off, won't pick up. That's the young crowd on the weekends and that's instant trouble.

Uber states that the app is expected to eat 2GB of data per month, Thats mYwhole data plan, yours may be different. I average 80 trips per week. my stats are higher than the top drivers for sac area in all cAtegoties

Sssoooo are you wanting validation for your stats? As for higher in "all categories", wrong! 4.6 vs 4.8 avg rating. You might need a costumer service class.

Yea, all but that one. I only have time to drive Friday and Saturday nights, some Sundays. I tend to get the drunk riders. I ahs them to STFU all the time, lol. STFU OR GET OUT THE CAR! Customer service is not s priority for me, dealing with the late night crowd.

Not sure about everyone else's cellular plans, but mine is unlimited data, for my phone and my GFs for $120 a month.
We also use it to Bluetooth to our tablets for internet service, to stream movies, watch you tube, or whatever.

For us, $120 seems like a good deal ...

Oh, its Metro....
