Want a car, but have bad credit? No worries!

Last Update: March 19, 2020

Unfortunately, the Uber Exchange program has been discontinued, see if the Lyft Express option could be right for you.

Uber has grown exponentially in popularity and is now looking for as many drivers as possible. But the thing is, many of these potential drivers that want to work, have pretty bad credit and are in need of an actual car to drive. Why not buy a car or get a lease? You may ask, well the reason being is quite simple. The man in charge of the program, Andrew Chapin, says “Many Americans don’t have enough cash on hand to buy a car. Many others could be denied leases or charged high rates due to their credit quality”, there are many people who want to drive but have bad credit. In consequence, they unfortunately are unable to get a lease. But thankfully, Chapin has put this worry aside and has created the Uber Xchange program. Uber Xchange is a leasing program that can get you a high-quality car for very cheap.

To apply, you simply have to log into your Uber account(if you are not currently driving for Uber, sign up and create an account) and sign in directly at partners.uber.com

Kinds of cars Xchange offers

Xchange is a very safe and easy way to get a high-quality car even if you have bad credit. Chapin states that “Xchange provides access to high-quality cars with no restrictions on mileage (unlike most leases) and the ability to break the lease early with minimal fees”.

This makes Xchange unique in comparison to many leasing companies, as according to an Uber spokesman, “the program isn’t meant to generate a profit, but to get more drivers in cars.”. This means that they are dedicated to helping you and aren’t focused on making a profit. The kind of cars that Uber offers are listed on the official website and has a pdf showing the full list. Vehicles requirements for Xchange Leasing program: 2009 or newer No salvage title 4 full-sized doors Minimum of 5 seat belts (driver and 4 passengers)
