    As a driver and passenger, I'll answer briefly, never get into a car that does not comply. Take care of yourself, be careful.

    Definitely do not get in the car if the car does not match the one in your profile! There have been a few instances of people pretending to be Uber drivers just to mug whoever gets in their car!

    This happened to me once! Someone tried to pick me up but their car didn't match the one in my app, they said they were using their wifes car but I didn't get in...

      When I was using 2 different cars for Uber/Lyft. One night I changed the car in the Uber app but forgot to change Lyft. My 1st 2 female riders never said a word. I assume because a. they just cared about getting ride or b. figured I was female had no worries. My 3rd rider who was a guy brought it to my attention by saying "I dont mind but your car doesnt match". I thanked him and showed him in the app after ride was completed that I was telling the truth. I felt like a total idiot and was embarrassed. Unfortunately I did it a 2nd time. Again 1st 2 female riders never said a word. It was another male that told me.  I only use one car now so no more issues. Thankfully no one reported me. Both cars were registered, legal, and active so I dont think it would've been a big issue had it been reported. Never ever get into a car that doesnt match what you have on your app.
