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.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and Ryde Shopper are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
