Any uber or lyft drivers that use Yaris?

I was thinking about doing Uber and or Lyft part time, while I am in school. Anyone else here use a Yaris for this? An do's, don'ts, or customer complaints? Any reason I shouldn't use a Yaris for this job? Seems like it would be great because it would save you a lot of money when it comes to gas.

I have no experience with this but keep in mind that the yaris has a low weight capacity. It was never designed to fit 4, let alone 5 adults inside. It saying it cannot do it, but it isn't designed for it.

There are a couple of Lyft drivers on here. Can't remember off hand who they are.

I'm sure member Dodge Aries K is one of them.

I think they have to select a different driver, one who is "Uber X" or "Uber XL" if they have 4 or 5 people.

I can't say I'm happy with Uber's performance. I don't know why, but every time I ordered an Uber, I constantly had some problems. The worst case was when I was late for my flight because of Uber. The reason I was late was because the driver thought he had enough gas to get to the airport (the gas ran out after 20 minutes of driving, we had to drive another 30 minutes). Since then, I have stopped ordering a taxi, and when I need to get to the airport, I order a car at https://www.twelvetransfers.com/dest...rdale-airport/. I like that I don't have to tell the driver what time he should pick me up, since his database has this information.
