    Older Prius / Lower Miles vs Newer Prius / Higher Miles

    I'm considering purchasing a used Prius that's lower-down on the depreciation curve for ride share and deliveries as a side gig. I've been "experimenting" with my current car in order to get some numbers figured out, and see if I actually enjoy it. But I don't like the idea of using this car for...

    Road Rage 101

    I'm pretty sure as drivers we have all dealt with road rage. Question is, have you ever dealt with it with pax in the car? Quick story: I picked up 3 elderly women from the airport and we started heading into town. 15 minutes in, they all started napping. No biggie. I'm in the right lane, I...

    Prius lease required driving for Uber (up to 100,000 miles) ... what is "excessive wear/tear"

    Your thoughts, please. I was one of 100 drivers in a Toyota Financial pilot program who got a 2015 Prius after its first two-year lease to someone else in So/Cal. My lease allowed Toyota to accumulate rideshare data by wiring my Prius with devices that monitored my driving performance and the...

    Prius Love

    Especially in Urban markets, Prii seem to be the go-to econobox to haul pax. The driving experience is an acquired taste I've come to savor. I'd love to see how others have shown their Prius some love. Post your Prius! I'm rocking a Super Dirty 2012 Prius II in Winter Gray Metallic with 123k...

    Failed Uber Inspection for Orange Car

    My vehicle is 2012 Prius C with a standard factory color Habanero Orange. The local Uber inspection site failed my car only for being orange in color. They told me the vehicle looks too much like a taxi. I have no signage or emblems, and nobody has attempted to "hail" me for a ride in the 5+...

    Prius or Camry Hybrid?

    Hi, first time poster. Was curious to hear feedback on why/why not get either a Prius 2016 or 2017 Four Touring or a Camry Hybrid 2018. Figure the 2016 Prius would help with depreciation costs and is nicer looking than the 2017, but am thinking the Camry had more knowledge to work with given its...

    What car do you use?

    So what car do you guys use? Also, how many kms per week on average? Anyone use a Prius? I drove cabs for a while and imo it would be the ultimate uber car to use. Fuel economy (obviously) was second to none. (Between 4 and 5 litres per hundred). It was also very roomy. I could fit 4...
