About 45 minutes ago Uber Xchange Leasing is available in Seattle. Already got email and applied. Much better than Breeze.
Did you ever get into your car w/ Xchange? I've heard it's quite a hassle...and at Breeze I've heard it takes much less time and you get to deal with real people. For me, that's worth a lot.
Do you know any Seattle area dealers that have the XChange program? I've already created my account but there's no way to contact Uber by phone to ask car questions. Actually, listening to their voice mail message stating why they don't accept calls leaves a bad taste in my mouth from square one. I'm pretty clear on what cars fit in each class as written by a third party. Again though, it's like Uber holds the black box of definitive rules. Hence the reason I'd like to talk to a dealer and get a car squared away before the hard hit on my credit report for something I may not do unless I get the car I want. If there is a way to private message people here, that response is fine too... by anyone who knows of a Seattle area Xchange dealer. Thanks!I've actually checked. So the disposition fee if you want to return the XChange Lease after giving two weeks notice (similar to Breeze) is the $250 that you paid initially as the deposit to get the car. So you're paying the disposition fee up front. However with Breeze you pay them $250 to join the program. So it's a wash there. However with XChange you pick the car to lease which will not be a Prius. And it can be used. Also they include all basic maintenance (oil changes, tire rotations, air filters, etc) the entire time. And no mileage restriction. And payment for a $20,000 car is only about $130-$140 a week. Can be closer to $100 a week if you more around the $14,000 range. Much cheaper than Breeze. Also with XChange you can own or buy the car at end of lease for not much whereas with the Breeze really not getting any equity it is more like a rental.
