    Someone lent me his car for a week while he is away. Within a few days, I noticed that one of the tires is leaking, probably due to regular wear and tear. Am i halachicly required to repair it?

    cmon. ask a shailah. i think its taluy in a few things. depending on your income its definitely a nice thing to do if the guy gave you his car for a week.

    Not that I don’t appreciate tremendously what he did for me. I mean, I would NEVER lend ME my car even for a day. I’m fixing it anyway. But I’m still curious what the halacha would be.

    I think this is called meisah machmas melacha and you would be patur, unless of course you used the car in some irregular way or in some irregular terrain that would kill the tires.

    I believe that when borrowing something, you are obligated to pay, even when it is not your fault.

    On the other hand, he would have to prove that the leak started on your premises, for all you know there was some tiny leak which started before he borrowed you the car.
