      Hi Harry,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder. I hope all is well with you. 😃

      I’m afraid you can’t use any vehicle for Uber. The vehicle you want to use should be Uber-approved and must meet the requirements of Uber. The vehicles you can drive for Uber would depend on various factors such as which Uber type you want to use and which state you’ll be driving.

      To learn more, you might want to read our guide for each state or area:

      Hi Scott,

      Thanks for your inquiry

      30 days after the lease start, drivers are able to opt out of Leasing agreement as long as they provide two weeks notice.

      It would be best if you could speak directly with your lessor, to submit the necessary documents before opting out.

      Hope this information helps

      Cheers,
      Arnold
