Response
: None because the car was sold "as is." The Buyer purchased the car "as is" at his own risk. Unless, you materially misrepresented something during the transaction, the Buyer does not have any recourse against you. For instance, if the Buyer asked you about the condition of the car and you did not tell the Buyer the whole truth, then the Buyer may sue you for material misrepresentation, which resulted in him purchasing a car he would not have purchased but for the misrepresentation.
