How do you feel about people borrowing your vehicle?

I personally don't like it, especially when it's quite valuable, taking good care of it. A far family member is coming to work nearby, and they asked if he could stay with me. I said, yes, of course. For a week. (I expected a few days, but we are really close, so whatever) Then they found out that I walk to my job, so he said that he won't rent a car, I will just pick him up at the airport, and he will just take my truck while he is here. I didn't know how to get out of that.

It depends on who the person is. What their track record is with borrowing things. And the SECOND they bring the car back on an empty tank is the LAST time they get to borrow it. But generally, I don't let people drive my car... More

So you are willing to open your home to a member of your family, but not your car? I think you should get your priorities straight. Family and friends > your "quite valuable" truck.

It used to not bother me until a (supposed) friend went and got tickets on my buggy while he used it and did not report such. I got several court summons from this episode. Lately though my vehicle has been borrowed by just about everyone in the family and really it doesn't bother me except when I need the car and it'... More

It depends on the situation. My garage is crowded because of contruction around my home and lent my good girlfriend my car because of hostile weather outside in Alaska. She paid for repairs and keeps it in an indoor garage. She doesn't drink nor smoke and I trust her to babysit the car. I don;t see well at night... More

It would never happen......A lot of people don't think of a vehicle as an important investment. Assuming that they could just use your vehicle tells me that they would not take care of it. It would get trashed. A simple no would suffice. He must be a real piece of work to assume your property is his property.

There are two things in life you do not lend, one is your significant other and the other one is your car.

My rule is: If I'm not driving my truck because of the price of gas, I'm not loaning it. The buses run every half hour, and the grid is laid out so the longest walk you have is quarter mile. (Two long blocks to the bus stop, two long blocks back. Transfers are free.)
