    I had my car repaired./ I had repaired mu car.

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to revise the following two sentences?

    1.1. I had my car repaired.

    1.2. I had repaired my car.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    V.

    Re: I had my car repaired./ I had repaired mu car.

    Causative
    1.1. I had my car repaired. <Someone else did the repairing>

    See http://web2.uvcs.uvic.ca/elc/studyzo...ammar/caus.htm

    Perfect
    1.2. (I left for work as soon as) I had repaired my car. <I did the repairing.>
