Is it mandatory that Uber cars have AC? Mine was so hot the other day and the driver said it was on but he must have been lying. Should I report him?

    Yes you are supposed to have working AC.  Should you report him?  Assuming he wasnt a crazy angry person would've mentioned it to him that it didnt feel very cool in the car during the ride. If you didnt feel comfortable mention as you are getting out in a nice way. If he got rude or cocky  I may give him less than 5 stars (4). Once you do that it should ask you why you are not giving 5 stars. Please answer it and say "AC wasnt cool enough". When riders rate drivers less than 5 stars 99.9% of the time we dont know why. We cant fix something if we dont know what we are doing wrong. Maybe he needs to charge his system. It is $30/$50 per can. Sometimes you need 2. Maybe he didnt have the money this week and needed to drive to get the $. Maybe he feels cool and doesnt realize it may not be for other people. In my car my riders think its too cold:) They are lucky I didnt add the 2nd can of refrigerant to my system:)

    I am pretty sure yes.  I think I saw it somewhere.  I think it's when they created a cheaper version of UberX in Vietnam or something, they required AC.

    What car that's less than 12 years old (or whatever the requirement is) not have an A/C?

      It could be broken and the driver not care to fix it (or cannot afford to).

      Over the summers, I would imagine that the low ratings and downvotes would naturally take them off the roads. haha

      Some cities are 10 yrs old some can be as old as 15 yr old.

    Such a driver would get bad ratings quick and disappear soon anyways.  Save your breaths.  No need to report him

    I just saw this article on this forum actually! Maybe this is what he was doing, saving fuel costs lol

    Hopefully it was just broken and he was on his way to fix it soon. Not only does that suck for passengers but I would assume he would want it fixed sitting in the heat all day.
