    I wouldn't think it's your responsibility as it's due to wear and tear on the car over a long period of time. Had you had an accident then yes it's your responsibility to pay for repairs.

    It's been a long time since I had to think about a bailment question, but from memory because you are borrowing it from him, without payment, for your benefit, then you have a strict duty to look after it.

    But it sounds like you had the car for a very short period, and the defect was present when you got it. It would be different if you had longer term use of the car and you weren't checking the water or you ignored some sign that led to a greater problem.

    Can't edit, but forgot to add, no, o.don't think you're responsible either legally or morally.

    if it was something that was going to break/was already breaking then no.

    but if it was an incident etc then yes or thrashing it hard on the hwy or something.

    I think if you borrowed it for a long period of time - then yes .. you should probably offer to pay at least PART of the costs .. but if the borrow was just for a few days I think its probably his responsibility

    If it was due to something you did - like not putting oil and water in - then it is your responsibility to pay for it.

    If it is simply a maintenance issue, then no, it is his.

    Based on your description, it sounds like the latter, so no not your responsibility.
