Thanks to the emergence of the gig economy, it’s easier than ever to make some extra money while mostly being your own boss. Platforms like Lyft and Uber allow anyone to become a local and private taxi service. If you’re looking to start driving for one of these rideshare platforms in the Roseville and Clinton Township, MI area, you need a reliable car.

While driving for a ridesharing platform can be an easy way to spend your free time making some money, you not only need a vehicle that will help you earn a high rating, but you need a car that complies with the platforms’ requirements. Here at Mike Riehl’s Roseville Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we have a great selection of new and pre-owned models that make an excellent option.

So, what kind of car do you need to start driving for Uber or Lyft? Any car made after the year 2000, seating and seat belts for at least four passengers, and four doors. While these requirements allow you to pick from almost any car at our Roseville, MI dealership, we recommend looking for one that checks off a few more boxes. After all, a great car can help you earn an excellent rating.

We recommend looking for models that earn a high safety rating like the 2019 Jeep Cherokee or the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. You should also look for models that offer features that will keep both you and your passengers comfortable like USB ports, smartphone integration, and easy-to-manage climate control settings.

While you’re allowed to drive any car after 2000, we recommend looking for a model that’s less than ten years old as most modern models offer much more in the way of driver safety aids as well as better fuel economy.

As your Roseville, MI ar dealership, we have plenty of new and used cars for sale that are perfect for driving for a ridesharing program. To find the best model for you, visit us today at 25800 Gratiot Ave.
