Most cabs are not fleet sales at all actually. Cab companies will typically purchase lease return or repoed cars at Auction and then turn them into a cab. They destroy vehicles and never purchase new. They have their own garages so warranty is not of concern to them either...

Oh interesting, never knew that. I knew they also used to buy decommissioned police crown victoria's, but i think there is some regulation on age and mileage of vehicle that must be met when buying used vehicles to be used as a cab.

That's probably true but I guess it does make sense that cabs aren't all brand new vehicles. In New York they look new, but everywhere else cabs seem like they have been around for a few years. I rarely get into a cab that is a brand new model.

I guess it's a mix of it because I too have seen cabs that were old and in such a bad conditiion you wouldn't want to get in. and some really new

I bet the regulations vary greatly. It could be city regulation, state regulation, or national. That's probably why there is a observable difference in the quality of cabs depending where you live.

regulations are what it comes down to
i guess some places are more strict that others.
