Philkotse.com team recommends 6 best used vehicles for Grab/Uber drivers.
If you are:
  • Thinking of becoming a driver for Grab or Uber;
  • Unable to afford or not planning to buy a brand-new car;
  • Not sure which pre-owned vehicles will the best and most efficient choice.
Philkotse team will help you understand some best used cars that you could work with and each one’s potential benefits.

We do not recommend purchasing a brand-new car just to drive for Grab or Uber. If you happen to buy an all-new car and you want to make some extra cash ubering, that’s fine. But purchasing a new vehicle for the solely purpose of ubering is plainly wasteful. We mean it’s not worth purchasing a new vehicle to be putting mileage on it for P5.70 per km with UberX or P13.75 per km with UberBlack in Manila.

For a Grab or Uber driver, the most crucial and substantial investment is a car. And to make sure this investment is cost-effective and productive, the car you’re buying for Grab or Uber must be fuel efficient along with being roomy, safe and comfortable, and as well nice to maintain a good Uber/Grab rating.
