The seller in Spain has to give waranty ( even a private seller ) for 6 months or even 1 year if the buyer could prove that you have scamed him with the sell
If you have an adress or resides here in Spain he could demand you in court and you will have to pay him
If you do not have an adress or you do not resides here in Spain, he will have a lot of problems to get his money back
If you see that you could get problems with him, may be better if you make an arregment to fix tha car with an used spare ( Its legal) and give him the car fixed
But the law its pretty clear, the seller has to give 6 months waranty at least
It is the article 1485 of the spanish civil code
If you want it I can send you a link with the law in english
I will be here if needed
You can write if you have some doubts
If you do not have them I gently ask for a good rate of my service
Thank you. have a good day
The problem is what we can probe. The buyer only has to probe the fact of the bought, and what the car is broken now and the fact that the broken has been for his negligency its for you
So, if you can no probe he has been negligenty you must repair it. To probe the negligency its a matter of you. And it will be very hard for you
Actually I am the leader of the legal deparment of a company here in Spain and we have 20 years experience in the automotive second hand market. I know what i am telling about. Be carefull because in court you could get problems
The best you could do in order to save problems its to meke the arregment to fix the car with an used spare, you will have to pay spare and work but it will be the best for you. Or try to probe the negligency of him, but in court you will assum a very highy risk
Or give him the money back, obiusly.
Its the best you could do, to save problems
Please do not forget to rate positively my service
have a good day
