I'm not big on Uber/Lift because I don't think it pays well enough after all expenses are factored in.

That said, I'd get a new Chevy Bolt if it were me. With incentives here, I could probably get one for the low $20k. No maintenance, and electricity is about 2 cents per mile where I live. Federal incentives reduce in April, so my guess is these used EVs will appreciate, or at least hold their value.

If it really needs to be below $10k, Prius is the right tool for the job. Diesel fuel prices will be increasing soon.

I wouldn't get a manual because some passengers will think it's weird, and it jerks them around a bit. Stick to an auto.
