UberX & UberXL Car Requirements

Uber Car Year Requirements and Accepted Vehicle Models for UberX and UberXL 2019

What are the Uber Car Year Requirements in 2019? Every year, Uber updates their list of vehicle standards and requirements. For drivers, this policy mainly affects one thing: how old your car is allowed to be. 

On March 1st, 2018, Uber began transitioning away from its old X and XL policies, which often mandated that vehicles be no older than Year 2003 models.

Why does Uber keep changing the model date requirements for X and XL vehicles? 2019

Local regulations change with time, and Uber wants to avoid violating commercial vehicle regulations in the cities where it operates. The company also wants to make sure their drivers’ vehicles aren’t too old —  keeping assembly/manufacturing dates within 15 years helps avoid mechanical and safety issues.
