    Are you sure? After all, we are talking about the DR.
    I've never heard of anyone actually being responsible
    for anything that happens here... unless of course you
    happen to be a gringo

    My apologies, I assumed the OP is a Gringo.... in which case as you say, he is 100% responsible..
    and should consider himself lucky that no Lawyer is yet involved.. or a moto guy got hurt hitting the parked car , in which case his Parked Car would have been deemed "badly parked".

    Probably 100 over the years. Nothing offensive ever as far as I am concerned.

    So are you going to give him some sexual advise on his car problem?

    Obviously it is your fault! How anyone could think they should not pay for that is beyond me?!?!?! Dude come on!! Too bad you didn't get insurance...

    Huh, despite all the "legal" advice on DR1, the guy may not be responsible at all I believe he said there was no agreement or contract so who is to say what he could or could not do with the borrowed car (If I lend someone my car (It is fully insured so this is hypothetical) and she returns with a nice dent in side, sure she should offer to pay but I lack any means to force payment.

    Maybe he mentioned he wanted to use it in a demolition derby and the owner said OK or just smiled, not knowing (Hard to figure how he can place a "mechanics lien" on a car other than the one in question but it is the DR)

    In reality, pay the thing

    It took 10 days to fix my new car and meanwhile while parked on the street someone backed into the front of the car they loaned me and took off while I wasn't there to see who did it.

    When I went to the car dealer to pick up my car I showed him the damages to the front of the rental car that someone else had done and he told me it was my responsibility to pay for it.

    The bill came to about $350USD and he wont give me the title on my new car till I pay it.

    Who is supposed to pay for the damages? He says he only has minimal car insurance de Ley and I have to pay. I also have minimal car insurance de Ley. Thank you ahead of time for any of your expertise!!!
    Legal / shmegal opinion...

    here's the problem that needs fixing..

    In that light, arguing about the responsibility seems minor and insignificant.
