Today, my girlfriend's dad let me borrow his car for transportation to work because mine got totaled. This car is a complete dump and I've realized he's only letting me use it so it's my fault to fix the broken things on the car. So far, I've had to replace the battery and two popped tires. FML

Sounds like it might be worth getting a rental car instead of dealing with his manipulative BS. It sound like he's either trying to make you mad about it so he can play victim to try to make your GF mad with you or make it financially difficult for you to date her.

I'd immediately give him back his car and rent a 2017 car.

She better be able to suck a golf ball through a garden hose.

I sort of agree, rental car might not be cheaper though depending on location and car and if it is his only car should be happy no matter how trash it is he trots you of not only car wants free repairs

Replace your car and give his back. It might be that is the best he has. And watch out, daughters are often have the same values as their dad.

My dad is petty and does things like this, it makes me embarrassed of him and it most certainly doesn't make me want to do the same.

Send him a bill for the stuff you fixed/replaced. His car, his responsibility. Unless you actually broke something, you only have to pay for filling up the car with gas if you're borrowing one.

To be fair you are fucking the ass out of his daughter

Then take it back duh

Why are u paying??

You are choosing to replace these items. You could just return the car.

Don't pay for his car's repairs. That's his responsibility. You'd be better off renting a car temporarily or learning the bus/train schedule. Maybe ask your coworkers if they'd be willing to give you rides in exchange for gas money?

Soooooo when you're done with the car, I think it's totally your right to keep the items you supply during your time of use and then return it the way you got it, just with the gas-tank at the level you found it. Then sell the parts you had to buy if they won't be of any use to your own car. I mean, it might've been a kindness in a way, but if it's a dump, maybe you don't have any obligation to fix it, especially if you'll be needing to get a new car.
