Just to be clear, there was a 30 day limited warranty on it?
Thank you. When buying a used car, the vehicle is typically sold "as is" unless it is still under a manufacturers warranty or unless the seller provides a warranty, as in this case, was a 30 day warranty. As such, their legal obligation is for only that 30 day time period and they do need to fix/correct and issues that occur during that time. This is why, when buying a used car, it is always best to have it inspected by an independent third party, to see if there is anything wrong with it. They do not have to take the car back. However, if you want to sue for damages, you need to show they misrepresented something when the car was sold or failed to perform under the warranty. If you want to get out from this car, it is better to sell it on your own, then allow him to buy it back, since you will get less from him, then if you did this on your own. The missed work, is not something you can recover for and your damages would be those related to the vehicle and getting it properly working.
No, they could not. Unless you provide them with a warranty ( which I am sure you will not) nor misrepresent anything, they could not come back and sue you. You can advise the buyer, to have the car checked out, if they wanted to and place the burden on them, to perform their due diligence.

You would only be obligated to pay what the agreed upon price was, which was $36, based upon what I can see.
That is something which customer service would have to answer. They can explain your options and assist. That is outside the scope of what I am able to answer.
