The law is, "Buyer beware!" If you are selling a vehicle to a person and you give them a receipt on that receipt you should write, "AS IS" which means this person is agreeing to buy this vehicle in the condition it is. Be sure to get the signature of the new buyer of the vehicle. If a person is on the ball and they are buying a vehicle they would usually take it to a mechanic to have it checked out first and they have that right to do so. Obviously this person didn't. If this person sues you in a court of law, and the law can prove you knew that the vehicle was not in decent shape (e.g. the brakes were starting to fail) and this caused the accident and possibly bodily injury or death, yes, you could well be sued.

How do you write an informing letter about your status in life?

Try writing it as though you are talking to someone, telling them about your status, how you got there, and where you plan to go from there. From that, you can then edit out the part(s) that you don't want in it, which will then leave you with the informative letter. By including how you got to the status in life where you are now, and where you plan to go with it, it will give you better insight to your current status in life, thus, helping you to write an informing letter about your status in life.
