Best Cars for Uber and Lyft Drivers
This week, Consumer Reports created a list of the best used cars for Uber and Lyft drivers. You don't have to drive for these services to get value out of this list. If you tend to put a lot of miles on your vehicle, and you're looking for something very reliable, this is the list to use.
Consumer Reports doesn't recommend getting a brand new vehicle since they depreciate too quickly and wouldn't make financial sense for ride-share drivers.
