    Let's see how do we stack against each other when it comes to mileage on the odometers.

    Please update yours and share a few helpful tips about your car choice...

    What make and model do you drive?

    I drive a Prius and it is at 190K now. Been a good car for me so far. If I can manage to run it till it is no longer aceptable in the platform, probably I will be able to buy another used Prius at around 7 year old to avoid fast depreciation.

    the 1st option in your poll seems flawed ... I have less than 25K ... but "my pax do not deserve better"

    I tried to be humorous about it. 2-rate cuts ago they deserved it I believe.

    It is a 2006 Dodge Gran Caravan....Nice vehicle / power everything...Not super stellar for MPGs BUT great for its ability to haul stuff and / or people...it has the stow and go seating so I can fold up certain seats to alter where Pax can sit (I don't have them sit directly behind me so that seat is typically folded away until I get a big XL run then I'll fold it back up if needed).

    Parts are fairly cheap for it and I typically do my own maintenance to save shop fees.

    Well at least Tampa hasn't turned all X with leather into Selects. We now have Prius & Mini Selects .... blah. Nothing against Prius or Mini ... but it's pissing off pax cause they were expecting a more luxury car ... now those pax are upgrading to Lux

    This will cause a ratings massacre. Pax will react low-rating and causing these folks to lose their jobs. Official symbol of UberX is Prius yet some people having problem accepting a Prius as a ride. some pax admitted in twitter that they were low-rating all prii out of spite instead of simply looking for a different car.

    I have been canceled by pax because my vehicle is VW stationwagen but it happens to have a panoramic sunroof and leather interior plus I have cell phone chargers.

    Of course in DFW Prius drivers are disliked for Uber and Lyft by pax from my experiences with my own pax. The fact my car is a diesel does seem to improve the perception of my car though, at least the diesel pickup fanboys.

    I am a step below, I know how to take care of what's working but can't fix what's broken, either on a mechanic level or paint condition level.

    80,000 miles on camry and it looks like this:

    That's with no wax or polish, just maintenance washes (chemical guys soap with wax in it) for 2 years. It doesn't pop like new but it's the best I can do.

    This was at about 60k miles in the sunlight:
