Ratings and Reviews
App works- like the ability to date rather than marry car
Most of the negative reviews are about the price for the car. Putting price aside, the app is pretty simple and did what it was supposed to do- let me reserve and pay for a car.
With respect to the pricing for the cars, it seems high... but when you if you buy a car for $25,000 then 36 months later decided to sell the car, you’d probably have lost $10,000 in value. So that’s $300/month right there. Add the other stuff they include like insurance probably another $100/month, regular maintenance and repairs, maybe another $50/month, no down payment or interest, probably worth at least another $150/month- you are up to $600+. It seems to make more sense if you don’t want to be married to a specific car. It’s still definitely more expensive than owning one car for 10 years. Guess it depends on what you want.
Cars not clean
The price is right from a short term rental perspective for example one or two weeks as an alternative to a rental car. I got a minivan for the same price as renting just a standard size car. However the first car stank so bad of smoke I could not use it I made arrangements to get a second car and it was pretty much the same thing. They did a fragrance bomb in the car to mask the smell of the smoke but now two days in the fragrance is worn off and the stench of smoke is clear. Overall the car was dirty. They need to do a much better job of keeping the car is clean and smelling good.
Developer Response ,
Hello - We appreciate you using flexdrive. We partner with many different local dealerships and unfortunately can not control what vehicles are being provided. However, most cars provided are used but all should be clean. Could you please email us with the dealership name and more information at email@example.com? Thank you.
F from an MBA
This is a whopping F for the consumer from a business school perspective. Prices are outrageously high for mediocre cars. A subscription offers an allusion of convenience and simplicity which does not exist if you read the liabilities in the fine print. My car payment for a traditional 5 year loan from lightstream offers competitive interest rates so I can *own* a car at a fraction of the cost of this service. Sure, it depreciates, but I will *own* something when I go to trade it in in a few years.
This service seems to be geared toward people with high discretionary incomes or plain idiots who cannot make wise economic choices. I see very little potential here other than a niche service. As a venture funded startup CEO I look for companies that are truly adding value for their customers and investors. This business model is mostly one-sided and stacked against consumers. As a result I don’t see this company’s valuation depreciating as quickly as a car’s. My advice is to “steer” clear of this service and stick to traditional and economically sensible options.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
