Did you sell it with a clean title or a salvage certificate? Your insurance was required by California law to contact you within 10 days of the vehicle being declared a total loss to begin the process of getting a salvage certificate, so if they didn't do that and you unknowingly sold it with a clean title you may be okay there.

Based on what I've read on the California DMV site, it was/is still your responsibility to get the car smogged regardless of whether the buyer agreed to do this or not.

As far as the head gasket, don't give them a penny.

I sold it to them with the clean title, I personally asked someone at the DMV and they told me that I can sell the vehicle with the clean title, I just have to inform the buyer of the situation, which I did. So I'm fine there. It doesn't matter, I don't think they are going to file, they haven't responded for 2 days and I haven't heard anything from any other source. They were either trying to scam me, or they realized they can't get more than 250 so they gave up.

What's the big deal? YOU have no recourse from the purchase from a DEALERSHIP since you agreed to "as is". Why would any private party have a prayer of recourse from another private party. The ony way I coud see that happening would be if you wrote a specific warranty documnet and posteda bond to cover the potential warranty claims.

I don't remember see it here, adding as is to the bill of sale would have eliminated confusion. It is also a good idea to keep a signed copy for your records.

Cool

Next time he writes, just offer to give him the 250 back, but he needs to return the car in the condition you sold it to him.
