Nevertheless, driving jobs like this do not require a lot of qualifications. Some do require a commercial driver’s license or Department of Transportation certifications and physical strength. Really, physical strength you have to be able to deliver that 70 lbs package to the door with a smile on your face. More on that on the application of course.
Subaru rarely makes mistakes, but in the case of the earlier EJ251 used engines there’s a high incidence of head gasket failure and coolant passage clogging. This is easily addressed during a reseal by replacing the stock single-layer head gaskets with multi-layer ones, having the heads machined, and putting it all back together. The later EJ253 engines didn’t have this problem.
That said, the Grand National is one of the best factory sleepers ever made and you should be able to find one of these crazy cheap cars for around $20k, even though the average asking price seems to be MUCH higher.
Of course, no good list of crazy cheap cars would be complete without some American muscle. Of course, the Ford Mustang is iconic as any of its counterparts, so we sprung for the 1996-98 SVT Cobra. Unfortunately for the purists, this is the first model Mustang that saw Ford retiring its 5.0L V8 in place of a new 4.6L Modular unit. The Crown Victoria actually shares the same engine, albeit in a slightly different configuration that makes about 100 fewer hp.
If you want to get on board with a driving job as soon as possible, registering with a ride-sharing agency may be your best bet. Uber and Lyft are the most popular options and they do offer a fine opportunity for drivers. Best part? You do not need any special training, license or experience. Sure, some requirements still exist:
If you haven’t seen this video before, prepare to want a Smart for the first time in your life. One of the oldest car videos on YouTube never ceases to entertain, and the fact that this beast probably gets better MPGs than a stock Smart only adds to the absurdity.
Depending on your location, driving someone’s pet around the city may pay a pretty penny. It seems that New York Pet Taxi service charges $90 to $190 for a pet trip to the vet and back. You should definitely try this out in your community. It may work. However, if you aren’t in New York or San Francisco, do not expect to be paid this much.
GM’s dedicated electric hatchback currently delivers up to 238 gasoline-free miles according to the EPA. The Bolt EV owes this impressive figure to its 60 kWh lithium-ion battery and a 200-hp permanent magnet electric motor combo. Its starting price currently reads $37,495, but the available $7,500 federal tax credit will cut it down to just under $30,000. The Chevrolet Bolt has obviously taken care of the range and economy, but there’s still one looming issue that makes it a niche vehicle of sorts: the dreaded state of current supercharging station infrastructure.
The subcompact hatchbacks might not offer best-in-class efficiency or the most powerful of engines; it neither wins the cargo room war nor does it sport a class-leading set of features. Yet, it does all of the above more than admirably and offers a well-rounded package of perks that simply can’t be overlooked. It especially excels in the cargo room department where its folding rear seat does wonders. When fully folded down, Honda’s Magic Seat increases the Fit’s starting 16.6 cubic feet of cargo space to a whopping 52.7 cubes. Magic seat indeed.
Setting that aside these are some of the most reliable used engines available today. Shit, you can build them to over 900 horsepower (turn your sound down). Problem is, they don’t easily fit in most other cars. But you can easily put one…
Road Maintenance is not something you would only see in a movie. Seeing a truck with a plow is a thing. See, after landing an agreement with the district you may be involved in road maintenance. Sure, the work is seasonal and in areas with a lot of snow, however, before starting, some investments have to be made.
See, some can earn $300+ by placing advertisements on the car. Will they look a bit cheesy? Well, probably, but that is what it takes for an additional $300+ per month. Actually, I am not sure this fits this category of driving jobs as it is actually a marketing job. However, it could be good for you if you need some additional funds in your account. Google companies that would pay for this kind of advertising; they are out there.
Most of the compact Kia Forte’s sales come from the sedan, but the favorite American body style isn’t all that the Forte has to offer. The Forte5 hatchback is also a major part of the lineup with the price tag $1,500 higher than that of the sedan.
