Great Cars for Rideshares

September 27th, 2018 by

Ridesharing has become a great hobby, par-time job, or even full-time income for many Americans. Most of us know someone who has taken advantage of this booming business, driving customers to and fro on evenings and weekends. If you’re considering joining Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare company, we have some food for thought that may help you with your decision.

There are several factors you’ll want to consider when it comes to ridesharing, and we’re happy to help break it down for you. The biggest requirements for driving for a rideshare company include being 21 years of age, licensed, fully insured, and owning a vehicle that is less than ten years old. Some states also require specific inspections. You will also likely need a four-door vehicle with seating and seat belts for at least four passengers.

You’ll also want to consider entertainment and comfort features for you and your passengers. If you think you’ll want to listen to music while you drive and earn some money, you’ll want to consider the sound system and speakers of your next new vehicle. Seat warmers are another great feature that both you and your customers will enjoy along the ride, especially as the temperatures continue to drop. You’ll also want to consider fuel efficiency so you can get the most out of your tank.

We have many models in stock that offer the features and versatility that works best for ridesharing. Our mid-size crossovers and SUVs like the 2018 Jeep® Compass, Jeep Cherokee, and Jeep Renegade are among our favorites for ridesharing. They’re spacious and packed with comfort tech features. Another great choice for ridesharing is the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica. This large minivan can seat up to six passengers and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you and your passengers can stay connected.
