  1. No update.....nothing else has transpired.... at this point just going on with life and if anything shall arise we will deal with it. However our neighbors are aware and are keeping their eyes open to any potential issues.

  3. Yes..thank you all so much for your responses....it has helped to hear from others that we shouldn't feel guilty or responsible. This has been so stressful for both DH and I. We are both very compassionate and caring people and it's difficult to be that way in a situation like this where you have to be "all business" I have to remind myself the law wouldn't be this way if there wasn't a good reason for it.... these used car deals need to be "as is" because there is too much that can go wrong unexpectedly with a car.
  4. we had a van once.... I left my house and not 2 minutes down the road I realized it was acting funny....turned around came back to the house.... dh came home and it wouldn't go anywhere. So yes it can happen suddenly. Will wait and see what happens though... he was pretty angry with the first couple phone calls to my husband and not very happy with our final texts to him. I was in the house with our children when they guy and his 2 sons came to look at the car.... I thought the man drove the car farther than he did when he test drove it..however DH said he drove literally 2 minutes do
  5. well as it stands now we have no idea what will transpire. I am preparing for him to take us to small claims court and if so we will deal with it then. This is just so stressful for DH and him trying to do his job. That is mainly why he blocked the guy... he just didn't want the constant interruption all day at work.
  6. yes normally we do transactions at a public location...with a car it's different. Our address was on the bill of sale and title so..
  7. well I said decent... can't remember his exact words but it was more like "I can send my son" which I didn't really consider a threat. BTW..anyone know what happens on other end when you block someone from texting and calling on an iPhone? I know the texts won't go through but I read the calls go instantly to voicemail?
  8. he was actually being decent and he hasn't technically threatened us.... but maybe that is so there is no proof via texts..kwim? The only reason he wanted to send the son to our house was to pick up what he thought of was our "half" or "our contribution" to the repairs. We live on a small cul de sac with only about 15 houses..my neighbor almost lives directly across the road from us and he is a deputy sheriff for our county. I don't know him super well but I can go over and talk to him today. We also have a friend on the police force of our town. I can have DH get in contact with him tod
  9. UPDATE*** He was quiet all day long til this evening...he texted DH a few times, then called.... we just ignored him because #1 we were busy and #2 we were trying to determine the best way to finalize it all. The man said he would send his son to our house tomorrow to pick up the cash if that was ok.... to text him back and let him know. He would appreciate us helping him with the repair. Dh finally texted him and pretty much said we never agreed to refund any money or help repair the car. Then he got a bit ugly. Said we sold him a junk car, he paid more than the value etc... we final
  10. update: no other communication has taken place...no $$ sent .. at this point it sounds like they are looking for cheaper way to fix this car. I do feel terrible that it happened. I do know for certain that I drove that car/DH drove that car and neither of us had any indication from the transmission it was having issues. Drove no differently than it ever had. I do believe he really took it to the dealership to have it looked at though because he knew about service that had been done to it. According to him ... they told him the transmission was shot and had been... I don't see how that is
  11. He paid in cash so no problems there...
  12. he has since texted my husband again and is searching for a remanufactured transmission..... says he wants things resolved tonight....
  13. he's wanting a NEW transmission...which isn't necessary.... I don't want to even begin to bargain with him though because he will assume we are taking responsibility and we are not.
  14. my fear on refunding the guys money and taking the car back is what has he potentially done to it in some way to damage it out of spite...kwim?
  15. "as is" is not written on the bill of sale but in our state it is my understanding all private auto sales are "as is"
