    I’m guessing it is just a list of vehicles known to be accepted. As for ages, it depends on the demand for drivers, if they feel that they can’t get more drivers for a city with modest pay increases they will permit older cars. Uber will keep the age requirement as strict as possible to meet demand. A city like SF is going to have a lot different demand than a city like Omaha.

    2016 Buick Enclave ? For Uber XL or Uber Select in Palm Springs, Ca? its a 7 seater…

  • Jim Cambron

    If it has 4 passenger doors, then yes.

  • Jim Cambron

    Yes, but as I understand it, if you accept an Uber X hail, you get Uber X pay.

  • Jim Cambron

    Uber has a hard time keeping up with the different car models.

    In my case, it was a Ford Transit Connect but only for picture identification. The above list is more of a way to differentiate between X and XL vehicle qualification.

    If you car has 4 doors and is newer than the approved age year in your city, you can use it in Uber service assuming it is in decent condition.

  • Jim Cambron

    I think the rule is applied based on the message the “wrap” delivers.

    Nature scenes would be okay, but “Eat at Joe’s Pizza” or “Al’s Limousine Service” would not.

    Check with your local Uber office for details.

  • Jim Cambron

    Visit your local Uber office for assistance or simply apply for permanant registration.

  • Jim Cambron

    Probably not. The age of a vehicle changes just as your age changes as time passes.

    Once your vehicle’s age exceeds the allowable age in your city, you will not be able to use it in Uber service.

    The permissable vehicle age difference from city to city is, most likely, determined by the local government agency.

  • TOMK777

    Uber in their infinite wisdom mis-classified the Ford Transit Connect wagon as a full size van, most likely confusing it with the Commercial Ford Transit 150 Van, sorry Uber, just because they both have the word Transit in their name, doesn’t make them the same vehicle. The Transit connect seats 6 or 7 depending on the center seating arrangement, and is the perfect XL vehicle getting up to 28 mpg. If you allow the Kia minivan, and the Dodge Caravan, and the Toyota Sienna, and the Honda minivan, all of which are larger, than why ban the Transit Connect?

  • Allison

    I have a Saturn Outlook which is not on the list. But a GMC Acadia is approved. They are the same car with a different name. Why?!?!

  • RB

    Duh.. the wagon is still the sedan. There is no Taurus coupe.

  • RB

    You might be able to drive for them but you sure have a bad taste in cars.

  • RB

    I have a 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood coupe; a very rare car of which 896 were made. It is in nice shape and I figured I’d be able to offer people rides in it at a higher rate than say someone offering a ride in a Toyota Corolla. Even if I only were requested once a month that would work out as I don’t really want to do it anyways but if someone is willing to pay for it then fine. Guess I’m wrong as it is “too old” by Uber’s rules and also not a four door. Ridiculous. Someone with a 1952 Rolls Royce that usually hires it out to weddings at $400 an hour can’t advertise their car on Uber to offer people rides in it if they wanted? Those working for Uber who think age equates junk in vehicles are obviously in the wrong business.

  • Liz M

    I don’t see the Kia Forte5 (hatch) on this list and yet they’re offering $1000 cashback for Uber drivers on it?? Same with the Hyundai Elantra GT (Touring went away a few years ago). Where does this list come from?

    I looked at the list, and it said Ford Taurus, is that only the sedan version or does it include the wagon version also, cause I have a 95 Taurus wagon with barely 100k on it. Would I be able to drive it?

  • elephant4life

    Seating five people in a sedan can be pretty cramped. Can the vehicle be a crossover, SUV, or van?

  • That car isn’t a sedan or larger. You need a sedan at least. At least 4 doors and 4 passengers

  • I’d say a wrap is the very definition of a marked car

    What if your vehicle has a wrap? Is that considered a “marked car?”

  • Walter White

    If you’ve not yet done so, see the reply from thomasah below since it also addresses your question.

  • Walter White

    I’ve never heard of any maximum permissible mileage in any city. I suspect that it just hasn’t yet been identified as an issue by Uber. It’s likely sufficient for now, as they aggressively court additional drivers, to use vehicle age as a proxy. However, I suspect that, as the TNC industry matures and the driver pool stabilizes, mileage will be added to the criteria used to assess vehicle suitability. But, who knows, they might have mastered driverless vehicles by then and it’ll be a moot point. 😉

  • reg barclay

    No, you could try anyway. I’ve had a car approved that isn’t on the list.

    Hello. I have a 2013 VW CC Sport Plus which my BF is considering driving for NYC Uber. Are there any restrictions on this car because of the sport package? For instance it is lower to the ground and has leatherette seats and privacy glass. Would this be okay for UberX or possibly UberXL?

  • thomasah

    I drive a 2015 Ford Transit Connect XLT, LWB, Wagon that seats 6 passengers. It is not on any list anywhere, but was approved by Lyft for Lyft Plus and after an office visit to Uber, was approved for X and XL.

  • Aimee

    I own a 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT, in mint condition! Was wondering why it’s not on the lux list? It’s surely a luxury suv!

  • Walter White

    So, what’s the deal with the stringent “2014 and newer” requirement on all the pedestrian economy models of each make (e.g. Cruze, Civic, Sentra, Corolla)?

  • Walter White

    Definitely, but it’s unlikely that any TNC platform would deem it acceptable. 😉 And that’s a shame.

    It’d be nice if the TNCs ultimately determine a cost-effective method to accurately evaluate the road-worthiness of any given vehicle above and beyond its model year. Case in point, there are more than a few 12-15 year old vehicles that are more roadworthy than some 2-5 year old vehicles. That’s because vehicle maintenance, and thus its condition and road-worthiness, varies significantly from one owner to another.

    However, it’s likely that government-mandated safety standards play a very large role in these determinations, so the above is probably moot. In other words, it’s not like anyone is retrofitting their ’66 Mustang with shoulder belts and driver and front passenger airbags!

  • Walter White

    Based solely on the above “Volvo S60 Sedan, 2014 and newer”, I’d say no.

  • Walter White

    OK, so between 2001 and 2008, inclusive. This means that currently the oldest permitted vehicle in one city is 15 years old and another city is 8 years old — that’s nearly double the age difference! I find it very strange to have as much as a 7-year difference in oldest allowed vehicle age in different cities. Are there any actual *practical* reasons for this, or is this purely dictated by local city ordinances that are themselves likely arbitrary?
