8 Easy Car Maintenance Tips for Uber and Lyft Drivers: Why a Treads Tire Subscription is a Game Changer and will make you Happier

Car Maintenance Tips for Uber and Lyft Drivers

Author Name


Attn: Rideshare Drivers!

As a rideshare driver for Uber or Lyft, your car is your business. Keeping your car in good condition is essential to ensuring that you can continue to make a living. Regular car maintenance can help you save money on repairs, improve gas mileage, and extend the lifespan of your vehicle.

In this post, we’ll cover some car maintenance tips for Uber and Lyft drivers. We’ll also highlight some of the most common car problems that rideshare drivers face and introduce a Treads Tire subscription as a game-changer for tire maintenance.

Regular oil changes 

Oil changes are one of the most important car maintenance tasks you can perform. Your car’s engine oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine, reducing friction and heat. Over time, the oil can become dirty and break down, leading to engine damage.

Most cars need an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but check your owner’s manual for your car’s specific recommendations. If you’re driving for Uber or Lyft full-time, you may need to change your oil more frequently.

Tire maintenance 

Your tires are the only point of contact between your car and the road, so it’s crucial to keep them in good condition. Check your tire pressure regularly and make sure your tires are inflated to the recommended PSI (pounds per square inch). Underinflated tires can decrease gas mileage and cause uneven wear and tear on your tires.

As a rideshare driver, you are putting more miles on your car and putting more wear and tear on your tires. That’s why it’s crucial to take tire maintenance seriously. A Treads Tire subscription can help you keep your tires in top condition without breaking the bank.

Treads Tire Subscription

A Treads Tire subscription is a tire maintenance service that delivers tires to your doorstep, installs them, and handles all aspects of tire maintenance for you. With a Treads Tire subscription, you’ll never have to worry about going to a tire shop or wasting your time on tire maintenance again. Instead, you can focus on what matters most: driving.

Here are some of the benefits of a Treads Tire subscription:

  • Tire delivery and installation

Treads will deliver your tires directly to your doorstep and install them on your car. You won’t have to spend time going to a tire shop or dealing with the hassle of tire maintenance.

  • Regular tire maintenance

With a Treads Tire subscription, you’ll receive regular tire maintenance, including tire rotations, and balancing. This can help prevent uneven wear and tear on your tires and extend their lifespan.

  • Flat tire repair

Treads also provides 24/7 on demand roadside assistance and flat tire repair services, so you won’t have to worry about finding a mechanic or tire shop in case of a flat tire.

  • Affordable pricing

Treads Tire subscriptions start at just $30 per month. This is a fraction of what you would pay for regular tire maintenance at a tire shop.

Signing up for a Treads Tire subscription is easy. Simply download the Treads app, enter your car’s make and model, and choose the subscription plan that works best for you.

Brake maintenance

Your brakes are another critical safety component of your car. If you hear squeaking or grinding when you brake, it’s time to get your brakes checked. Regular brake maintenance can prevent costly repairs down the road and keep you and your passengers safe.

Regular tune-ups

Regular tune-ups can help prevent car problems before they occur. During a tune-up, a mechanic will check your car’s fluids, spark plugs, and other components. This can help improve your car’s performance, gas mileage, and prevent breakdowns.

Clean your car regularly

As a rideshare driver, you want your car to look and smell clean for your passengers. Regular cleaning can also prevent dirt and debris from causing damage to your car’s interior. 

Keep a maintenance log

Keeping a maintenance log can help you stay on top of your car’s maintenance schedule. This can also be helpful if you ever need to show proof of regular maintenance to a potential buyer or a mechanic.

Address car problems immediately

If you notice any car problems, such as strange noises or warning lights on your dashboard, address them immediately. Ignoring car problems can lead to more significant issues and more expensive repairs down the road.
