    Добрый день, Елена Викторовна! Скажите пожалуйста не будет ли более правильным в предложении: My car was stolen a few weeks ago. — He said that his car had been stolen a few weeks ago. в косвенной речи оставить форму was stolen ( He said that his car was stolen a few weeks ago) , ведь явно указано , когда это произошло.

      Будет отличие по смыслу
      He said that his car was stolen — говорит о состоянии — его машина украдена (тогда уже нелогично использовать a few weeks ago)
      He said that his car had been stolen a few weeks ago, had been указывает, что «украли» машину ранее момента, когда он об этом говорил, и в тему указатель времени a few weeks ago
