    Huh, I'm at 82k now, no issues. I've noticed that it goes through cheap brake pads pretty quick, but nothing other than that. Thanks for the heads up though, I'll keep an eye out.

    I love my second generation Lexus IS.

    But I wish there was an Über option to allow coupes.

    Gotta love goober... They finally forced me to bring my Golf in for an "inspection"... It's a 05 and in this market it MUST have less than 150K on it. I had hoped I could talk the tech into fudging the numbers on the miles but nope.. anyways it passed, they even said "it's the best kept uber car we have seen!".. Never mind the 314K on the clock. deactivated and then bombed with info on how to lease a car (KMA) with in days...

    Lyft didn't seem to care, neither did several on demand/call courier companies locally. so I'll stay busy without the goober surges.

    Don't drive officially yet but plan on it so...

    2015 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ

    And I know a bunch of you are going to criticize it for being small, but it has four doors and has been enough room for 3 in the back in the past so here goes.

    LTZ trim on the tiniest most basic car in the lineup?


    Were you trying to pay double for the least car you could possibly get????

    It probably cost you more than a decent Select/XL Escalade or a uselessly flashy but oh-so-cool Select-only Maserati Quattroporte, amirite????

    Well at the time I was downgrading from a big bad truck that I shouldn't have bought to I could bring my payment down. I knew I wanted leather, good gas mileage, and I enjoy the backup camera so when I stumbled upon the car used at 12K miles for around 13K I thought I was getting a good deal. But yes I believe they were MSRPed at around 23k at the time...Still not horrible. I can't afford an escalade!

    Sure you can.

    Though 13k might be pushing it close....okay, fine, Navigator L then. Unless you a Craigslist wizard like me.

    From a business standpoint, Navigator L = Escalade ESV = Suburban LTZ = Yukon Denali XL (for UberSUV, TCP only)


    ....and when you drop down to select/xl years, Escalade = Navigator = Suburban = Yukon and MAY = Expedition and sometimes Explorer in leather trims

    They were offering 72 months 0% on the sonic and spark... Not that a car would last that long ubering, but that's around 100 a month.

    2009 Chevy Malibu, 150K miles, a bit of a rattle-trap now, perfectly serviceable. Most trouble-free car I've ever owned, and no complaints.
