    The 40,000 miles per year is not prorated, if you return car at 23 months the mileage limit is 40,000,
    if you return car at 24 months the mileage limit is 80,000 (2 years X 40k per year = 80k),

    I may be wrong about the no prorated mileage, just call and ask for yourself and have your uber id ready.

    well like i said. im not sure if it was because of "lower rates/more rides equals more money" or because im getting smarter at working as i just started 7 weeks ago. i haven't been out as much since that good weekend so i'm still not sure. im thinking it might be a combination of both honestly.

    Sorry. Can't help ya. I give you credit for having the balls to admit how monumentally bereft of intelligence you were to have done a "double ****" deal like this.

    i read those parts of my contract and while it does mention overage fees for going over 40000 miles being taken into account it is with other factors being involved. the car being turned in with unacceptable wear and tear, etc

    also the part of the contract that deals with an early return make no mention whatsoever of the 40000 cap or an exact per mile number like you indicated in an earlier post.

    i will give santander a call later in the week just to double check but all of this was explained to me pretty clearly though their rep at the car dealership where i got the car. i think it would have been illegal for the rep to clearly say there are only 2 fees involved and make no mention of a mileage charge for ending the lease early.

    i entertained your advice and none of those complaints relate to uber that i can see.

    this thread asked a question. i answered.

    even went through my contract a couple of times to do so when i didn't have to. take it or leave it.

    im doing quite well with the arrangement, so im good.

    Cool...
    I didn't re-read the thread from the start...I just assumed that you hadn't signed the lease yet. I'm glad it's working out for you.

    Santander in banking and Raisier in insurance are bottom of the barrel in their industries. Uber chooses the companies it uses to provide "services" to its drivers only based on being the ones that will create the biggest profits and lower costs for Uber.

    that may be but i dont see how that relates to specific questions i've been asked in regards to the contract or whether im actually making money from the whole deal. which i've already answered. i dont know why people keep quoting me for and about anything beyond that.

    i don't care about anyone's opinions on santander, raisier, etc.

    i am doing good with the deal. if you guys don't like it or can't understand the info that im being kind enough to provide, not my problem.

    Please let us know how it went after you sign the deal.
    I have heard the lease is not a good deal, but if you have Bad Credit or No Credit, then you pay Extra amount per month to lease the ties of cars they offer.
    Uber is trying to supply more drivers in able to have full service all over and wants anyone to join Uber. This is the reason they offer the lease deal.
    Best is to buy your own car and put milage on it and if you leave Uber, it will be your car anyway.

    I say this without any mean spirit....but one is doomed if they lease or buy a vehicle to do Uber or Lyft....DOOMED.
