Get your credit back on track because you'll need it someday, if only to get a home mortgage.

I almost drove for Uber myself in my Acura, but it failed inspection due to tire tread depth, and I didn't pursue it again because the pay isn't great. Driving and meeting people are enjoyable to me though, so it definitely appeals to me.

It's hard to imagine a van paying off. I'd do some research to see what percentage of rides to expect. Lugging the extra size around for all the 1 and 2 passenger trips doesn't make sense. Not only that, but minivans are notorious for needing more repairs, and those repairs cost more. A brake caliper for a van is going to cost more than for a Prius, for instance. Heck, the Prius will probably never need brakes in the first place.
