We sold a very old used car for $1500 to someone 8 days ago. He knew at the time that the car was out of Virginia state inspection. He called today and said the bearings need to be fixed and he wants us to fix them. Are we obligated to fix them or do we have to take the car back? Or is the deal still good?

If this now disgruntled buyer knowingly bought "AS" your "very old used car for $1500", and you made no
misrepresentations in response to any questions he may have asked concerning this vehicle's bearings,
in my opinion he's probably stuck with this deal for which he apparently failed to exercise due diligence
and you are unlikely, legally speaking,, to be under any obligation to take the car back and refund his purchase price for the old clunker..
