Is it worth buying a luxury car? Are you staying busy? It looks like you can make a lot better money but is there a real market here in Portland, OR for it? If you are an Uberselect driver, I'd really like your opinion.
I was auto-enrolled in Select and didn't even realize it until I checked my trip history. My car is a 2010, the oldest acceptable year.
14 reviews, all five stars. 52% requests accepted. 3% trips canceled (I was in another app and then Uber popped up and I accidently accepted).
Total trips: 32- 1 canceled (surging) because rider put in wrong pickup address. 1 canceled because rider got in car and asked to be taken to canceled Blazers game. 28 (5 surge 23 non-) UberX completed. 2 SELECT completed. Select is pretty sweet when there's a request because it's like getting paid a 2.3x surge even when the area is not surging. The riders are also less likely to be rambunctious.
IF the car you were going to buy is a premium UX vehicle (Subaru Outback Limited, Buick Regal, VW Passat) then I would pay the extra $3K to get the SELECT car (Buick Lacrosse, Volkswagen CC). If you weren't planning on replacing your car or if you were planning on buying something economical like a Kia or Ford Fusion then it definitely is not worth it for SELECT alone.
