    Just compiled my numbers earlier today, 18269 miles in 2018....and I only drive weekends and an occasional night here or there.

    Unfortunately for you OP, you use a decent car for this....put on a helmet, youve got incoming.

  7. You are going to burn up that luxury SUV in a year. Actually you probably aren't going to be driving it much. I'll bet you'll be bored to death..

    I’m driving a Ford Explorer. It had 70000 miles on it when I put it into rideshare. I’ve already done one year of rideshare and now it hah 140000. I expect to get another year out of it and then sometime in 2020 either buy a new engine or another car. I hope to buy a luxury SUV when I replace the ford

    And yes I hope to drive less miles at a higher rate if I do the Luxury SUV. The best advice I found when I started driving was “don’t drive”. Ie manage dead miles.

  15. 5718 miles with my honey Lexus LS =) only drive on Saturdays and surge.

    70k miles... That translates to 191 miles/day!! You are truly a VIP of your dealer! I mean it. (Not those @@@ in uber)

    Basically you need a car every 2-3 years!!
