i could be in a situation

well i did have a blazer that was diesel and put it on craigs list and sold it to a guy in tenn.
he came and looked at it and talked me down 400 dollars and came 100 dollars off his orginal offer before he had even seen it. so he buys it knowing it needed a trans. rebuilt and he discovered that the front wheel bearing was out. i litterly told him everything i knew about it that was wrong with it. so this has been two or three weeks ago and he calls me yesterday and says the front pumpkin is broke in half completely and that i need to pay for it cause the way he talked it was "my fault" so i said well i never knew anything about it and he said that i needed to pay for it and if he had never knew bout it he would've never bought it. so he said to send him 150 bucks to his e-mail and i still havent sent him any money. to me i shouldnt be responsible for it b/c he came here and looked at it for an hour and drove it around before he bought it, and on top of that i didnt even know it was broken. i never advertised that the front end was in great cond. or in bad condition, i didnt know anything was wrong with it. so what do you all recomend i do?
i e-mailed him just now and asked him for some detailed pics to prove it. for all i know he could've done it when he was straping it down or got it home and drove it and that happened. personally i dont think i should be held acountable for any of it

This dosen't even deserve an answer, tell him to go pound sand. Used car, means used car. No warranty, implied or expressed. Simple, end of disussion.

when you wrote the bill of sale did you stipulate "AS IS" I learned that a long time ago, to always put that in writing so there is never any question, once it is bought that is it. Check your local laws regarding the issue, I do believe you are in the clear as you were clear about what you knew was bad, and as you said, he could have broken it himself especially since it had been a few weeks since you heard from him. For all you know he could have taken it out rock crawling or something like that. I think the thing that will keep you from having any issues is the time lapse.

Tell him to stick it in his.............ear! You don't get a warranty on a used vehicle from an idividual, usually. Stand your ground and don't give him a thin dime.

the only thing is would be that i am not positive that it wasnt cracked before i sold it to him
i had never seen it and he didnt see it wen he looked at the truck for an hour
now i did tell him that the 4wd did work. to the best of my knowledge it did work. when you put it in 4wd the light came on and i thought it seemed like it was in. i never really drove the dam thing hardly so i thought it worked i never tested it out or anything though
but he is saying that it isnt even engaging at all now

It still doesn't matter, bro. He bought it "AS IS". It just sounds like he's trying to pound you for free-bees.
