What kind of car would you drive if you could actually make money on Uber?

    Let the world know.

    Me I'd get a mid sized German car, 1-3 years old or perhaps brand new.

    I would really only need to average $20/ride (after gas and commission) and do 15 rides a day avg. But Uber sucks so much, I can't even come close to that. Yet most pax think we probably do that.

    Most pax think (because uber tells them so with their stupid ads) we could be driving Bugatti Vayrons if they had 4 doors.

    I'd be driving my 2015 4Runner if I could actually turn a decent buck doing this. It's much more comfortable for driver and passengers.

    But nah, she's staying in the garage. I'm not beating the **** out of a brand new car to make pennies. If I were going to continue driving Uber, which I probably won't, it'll continue to be with my Ford Focus ****box.

    In 5 weeks I could by that 3500 5k diamond bracelet.
    In 10 weeks I could own 5 acres of land in Colorado
    In 26 weeks I could own a house in Colorado
    In 52 weeks I could own all of that.

    In 2 days I will have my 18k white gold bracelet, (1.5 weeks Uber time)

    I'm happy with the Chevy Cruze really,
    Dream car is still unknown. Every American kid wanted a Corvette in the 70's and 80's. (1.5 years Uber time)

    Something similar to this -- but in dark blue w/ light grey interior, or forest green with tan interior.

    Audi a8 L W12. Transportation is a very precise business.

    Can't answer that since I'm making money, you would really have to be mentally challenged to not make money

    Then you are not doing Uberx or you are pretty poor at math. If doing Uberx I hope you figure it out before it is too later for you. A lot of people doing Uberx will not be able to absorb the loss when the unexpected car expense or accident occurs.

    First of all everyone's situation is different so making generalizations about not making money won't work. You're also assuming that there will be an unexpected expense or accident, what if that never happened? Makes your statement moot, right? What if my family owned a car dealership and unexpected expenses or depreciation of vehicle will never be an issue,once again this point does not apply to me. That's all everyone's situation is different that's all I'm saying

    Well, if you are so well off that you don't have to care about the risks then enjoy your driving hobby. Thank mommy and daddy for the car too. Seriously, I enjoyed driving a lot until I figured out the legal and economic risk I was taking and how little was actually earned in exchange for wearing out my car. If I could afford to do so without regard to the above I would probably selectively drive just for the enjoyment of meeting people. Good luck.
