One striking thing I have observed on here is that Nigeria seems to be the only Uber market where certain people believe that only deadbeat ugly-looking peugeot cars can survive. I have visited Kenya and Uganda several times, and 90% of the cars used over there for uber are decent-looking Toyota corollas. It seems there is such an obsessive push on here for people to dump their decent cars in favour of decaying peugeots on the premise that ''they are the best for Nigerian roads''. I have heard someone 'advice' a car owner to sell his decent looking car in favour of an ugly scrap peugeot. I don't think this is right.

I'm not even comparing Nigeria with other western countries, we are comparing it with fellow African countries. Plus, just because someone has been driving on Uber for a while simply doesn't give that person any sense of entitlement over a newbie. Uber doesn't need any experience, you simply start the app and drive the number of hours you feel obliged to. At the end of the week, you are paid in line with whatever bonus offers are available. The location you need to be is already highlighted on the app itself by its 'boost' feature, there is no rocket science about it.

I have been a silent reader on this page for a while and have been carefully observing the antics of some people, but let me just stop here. I think we should give kudos to Uber for taking a lot of people out of unemployment, these are the same people speaking with a false sense of entitlement just because they have managed to taste a few pennies in Naira. Drivers should consider themselves lucky to be in Nigeria where car owners give them there cars without an initial deposit, in most other countries, you pay a fixed weekly fee UPFRONT to lease the car.

You have spoken really well and I agree with what you said not until you mentioned Kenya and corolla.
There is a saying that goes this way : Experience is the best teacher. Its not about turning on the app, its about strategy, in everything you do in life, you must have a strategy and that's why the horse is always before the cart. In the game of chess, the white piece plays first and can either move a pawn or a knight, such goes in life.
Talking about corolla, we live in a society where people are looking for fast money and as such pushed into crime. Just few posts away, you saw where someone commented on how the brain box of 8 cars were stolen and I am sure you know the make, oh yes corolla. Some even wanna go as far as weilding it but that's really not the case.You are also at the mercy of these hoodlums when you drive a certain car at night. If there are 20 cars stolen, 15 will be Toyota and its rare for you to see a stolen KIA Rio, Peugeot or Hyundai.
Back to Kenya, the road network there can't be compared to what we have here.
Don't get me wrong, corolla is a good car but the vices surrounding it really gat to make one have a rethink unless you are comprehensively insured and sometimes you know how some insurance companies are when you go for claim.

In a nutshell, Experience they say is the best teacher that's why some newbies ask questions like "I have stayed at particular spot for so long without a request"
Which is the best phone to use, which is the best location to be on a Wednesday, etc.

Thanks for this great statement. I had been wondering why they chose Peugeot 406 & 407. In many other countries, better vehicles are used. I presume "ITS TO ENRICH THEIR POCKETS". Makes me wonder if the automobile sector is actually moving forward or backwards (a time when many other nations are implementing Electric Vehicle Policies)...

I honestly don't understand why you should have an axe to grind with someone if they choose to buy Peugeot 407 or 406 for their e-hailing business. Every businessman does what he feels is best for him, that is capitalism for you. As long as the cars live up to the hype and Uber/Taxify accepts it i don't see why the fuss.

On the "innovation" part I have just one thing to say: this is Nigeria. Why use a hammer to kill a fly?

The undertone of your writeup suggests that they profit from people buying those vehicles for partners. Either by a form of affiliate marketing or something else... If you know something, why not tell us what you know because from all the postings here Peugeot is a stable brand. Even GAZZUZZ has confirmed it.

All the shouting and arguing about which vehicle between Peugeot and Corolla works best boils down to

1. choice of the user
2. parts availability and cost
3. Resale value
4. Reliability over time.
And many many u can think of....

That parts are cheaper from one from to another boils down to DEMAND ...if demand for Peugeot parts increase, price will increase ....

But best way to shut down the argument is bring a 407 and a Corolla (both refurbished to 95% state), put them on the road and compare reliability, efficiency amongst others ... but also note all cars not built same way ....

Every one loves a Corolla....

Investment wise which will you go for considering all other factors

l have followed this thread for few months now and I am learning daily from everyone especially Ogunvic4 and Romeo3, I am discussing with my business partners in the West to see how l can invest in the business in Nigeria, from what I have read here, l think they are promoting the use of Peugeot 407 based on cheap maintenance, cheap parts, the ruggedness of the Peugeot and also some bit of luxury associated with the brand, Nigeria roads are terrible, I used an American Suv during my visit few years ago, l bought the vehicle myself in North America and shipped it to lagos with other cars, although it was a strong Suv but I know what I spent in changing the shock absorbers and several other wheel associated components due to bad roads, flood during raining season etc, I have not used Peugeot before but I think from what Ogunvic4 and Romero 3 are saying on here, it might be a good brand to use considering the terrible roads we have in Nigeria, l am already tilting towards using the Peugeot fleet once I am ready with my partners and I will meet Romeo 3 and his friend and see how l can do business with them, using a luxury car for Uber in Nigeria is not advisable because our roads are bad, I have seen Latest Suv and even a labroghini been used as a rental car in the Middle East when I visited several times during vacation but I am not surprised because they have fantastic roads unlike what we have in the jungle called Nigeria grin

You've definitely made some good points... ARE THE ROADS THAT UBER DRIVERS MOSTLY PLY (ISLAND/MAINLAND) THAT BAD?

In my opinion ITS MOSTLY ABOUT WHAT GIVES MOST PROFIT (CHEAP MAINTENANCE, CHEAP PARTS, CHEAP CARS).

Will these cars qualify for UberSelect, UberBlack, UberSUV etc... if ever Uber introduces this in Nigeria.

What happens to these cars if Uber Policies changes on Vehicle Acceptance... Riders complaining already that UBER CARS ARE MOSTLY 'KABUKABU'

Watching to see what happens to this Peugeot business model 6 months from now, by then, should be well tested.... By the way I'm also an investor...

God bless u sir, I have about 10 COROLLAS in the fleet, the Peugeots are strong and cheaper to maintain... Shocks can last for about 8 months or more...
BRAND NEW OEM 407 SHOCKS IS 20K
BRAND NEW OEM COROLLA SHOCKS IS 45K
the Peugeot shocks will do 8 to 10 months or more. Corolla will do less than 6 months
And lots more...
One of my drivers had an accident with a Peugeot 407 last week, I love this guy so much I told him to pick a corolla immediately while we repair the 407 he refused...
I have tested the two cars for about 8 months. The difference is clear...
Peugeot 406 and 407 won several awards in Europe
HAVE OWNED a Camry, a corolla, 406 and 407...
