First post, or not, good post.

OP--how can you possibly think it would be OK to not hold yourself responsible? Because you have other plans for the money? Come on! Be a man.

Re: Borrowed car responsibility

Whatever you do don't touch that car or anything of that owner's or his family. Get him to get a quote from a reputable repair person with an exact description of the area that is going to be repaired with photos and all and pay the body man, not the relative.

Yes, you are responsible but you don't have to be suckered into paying more than necessary.
