My mother was financing a car through a used dealer when she got in an accident and wrote the car off, the dealer than charged her for over mileage, I thought that only leased vehicles could have charges for going over a set amount of kilometers

    Was she by chance making weekly payments to the dealer? Sounds like this may be a "buy here pay here" lot and the owner is not satisfied with the insurance payout. Look over the contract she signed. If there is no language in there about miles, then she should have nothing to worry about.

    Fairly steady: '08 Charger R/T Daytona; '67 Coronet R/T; '13 Fiat 500c, '21 WRX, '20 S90 T6, '22 MB Sprinter 2500 4x4 diesel, '97 Suzuki R Wagon; '96 Opel Astra; '08 Maser QP / Rotating stock, but currently: '92 325i, '97 Alto Works, '11 Mini Cooper S
