    I've been riding uber for 3 weeks, every driver i've had so far is good. I had no accident, not issues at all with any of the drivers, i tip them with 3$ up to 5$ or if i really liked the ride i give them 10$ + 5 stars, obviously. But i just don't get it how is my rating 4.42, i engage in conversations with them, almost all the time, i'm very polite and with a soft and calm voice. I buckle up when i'm seating front, sometimes i don't close the door properly because i don't want to slam it and i have never made my Uber driver wait for me, not even a single minute. What am i doing wrong? I've had a couple of short trips indeed but they are at late hours between 9-10PM and Bucharest,Romania is a very dangerous city at these specific hours so in order to arrive safely home i call an uber, i obviously compensate with the in-app tipping at the end of the ride. I just don't understand, it's completely beyond me. I try to be a decent human being in their car and i think i am + i tip all of them + 5 stars but now my rating just went from 4.80 to 4.42...

    Funny. My rating is 5.00. I ride mostly in the US, and don't ride often, tip maybe half the time, if that. Always sit in the back and don't engage in conversation much, although I am generally polite and say thank you and have a nice day, I'm just not much of a talker.

    Maybe Bucharest drivers are especially demanding :)

    Also I thought I read that tips are anonymous and they are not supposed to be able to rate you based on your tip, but i'm not 100% sure of this. Also Europeans don't generally expect a large tip (yours sound generous for Europe), although maybe Uber is changing that?
