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.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
