Thatís the Mexican trash train back to Mexico, they buy those vehicles wrecked somewhere in northern Ohio or western New York and take em back to Mexico, I see em almost every week, Iíve seen some very shady towing scenarios outta them. Usually thereís 5 or more to a group, must get em really cheap to drive that far

Met one of those guys at the airport. He would buy a Chevy truck, and a few more cars at auction and haul them back. He claimed it was super cheap compared to buying in Texas.

Actual mold growing the seats and floor. Seats were moist from body sweat.

Paper floor mat and a plastic seat cover. We also have plastic covers for the steering wheel. I also typically wear rubber gloves when I'm working in cars, but I always wear them when inside customer cars whether they are gross or not. People be sneezing and picking their nose and shit on the steering wheel etc.



The trans shifter was hard to move. You could feel the stickiness of spilled pop and coffee etc in the mechanism.

Nope, not this time. I will say the "quality /cleanliness of the uber/lyft has improved. See more newer cars as of late then older cars. Still get a random nasty or serious pos now and then.

I don't now how they get away with their car being trashed and still drive for Uber or Lyft. When I get dinged for my car not being clean it is like the end of the world with Lyft and Uber. By the way I have only been dinged once and it was for a stain on the back seat from a kid that walked on my back seat with his dirty shoes.

That's what I was wondering. Either people aren't leaving feedback or the drivers don't give a shit.

I get the impression that majority aren't current drivers, but people thinking they are gonna become a driver. Seems the nasty ones don't have signage in the windows, where alot of the nicer ones have signage in them.

Same here, that said I have had a couple that you could tell had been pretty dirty, but they were older cars. One was a college kid.
