The flying car that Harry and Ron borrowed from Mr. Weasley in order to get to Hogwarts at the start of their second year was in fact sent by none other than Professor Dumbledore himself. This was revealed in an interview with J.K. Rowling by journalist Melissa Anelli in which the author stated:

“Dumbledore sent the Weasleys the flying car because he knew that Arthur Weasley was not going to be able to take the family to school that year and he wanted to make sure that the Weasleys could get to school. So he sent the car. It was a little bit like a present from Dumbledore to the Weasleys to make sure they could get to school.”

This act of kindness on Dumbledore’s part is just one example of the many ways in which he looked out for Harry and his friends throughout their time at Hogwarts. It’s clear that he truly cared about their safety and wellbeing and went out of his way to ensure that they had everything they needed in order to succeed.
