What If Your Car’s Model Becomes to Old to Drive?

Uber updates their model year requirements once each year, so it’s possible for your car to age out of Uber’s system. You won’t be able to go online with that vehicle when it becomes too old for Uber. Uber calls the process ‘vehicle transitioning,’ a nice way of saying your car no longer qualifies.
