  1. You are going to rent your car to a total stranger for $25.00/ day, GOOD LUCK with that!!
    Also what if they get a $167.00 Multi Nova speeding ticket, or a $388.00 going thru a StopSign Ticket while they a “Renting your Auto” you have to pay those tickets” I can not think of a better way to set yourself up for failure.


  2. The article should have been named “How to make money from your car IF YOU ARE UTTERLY DESPERATE”.


  3. I don’t see anything on the communauto site about renting your own care to the service.


  4. I tried it a year ago. Not a good idea, because after the second time, my car came to repair, which cost me 1,200 pounds…
