I had they exact same thing happen once to me. He has no ground. Lemon law only applies to dealers. When you sell a car private party you are giving up liability. If the car broke in half 3 miles down the road he would own both halfs. Thats why they call it release of liability. Now if you want to be nice to him and pay for some or something thats up to you. It sucks to be in his position, i have also been there, but you are not liable. Yes he can sue you but he most likely will not (anyone can sue anyone but as far as I know he has no ground pertaining to the law.) As a private party sale it is the buyers responsibility to have it inspected. It is the sellers responsibility to smog it. You are in the clear.
