Default Sold car. breaks down. ur man wants me to pay for it

Hey all!!!!!
I recently sold a car privetly. The car passed the nct the day before i sold it. The person i sold it to has now said the timing belt snapped. ( a week or so after selling the car) This was tested as part of the NCT and passed. The person i sold it to is now looking for me to pay for the problem, even though when i sold the car there was no problem with it and i have an NCT cert to prove this. The timing belt was well within its milage limits and didnt need to be change for another 40K
Legally im not sure where i stand. I didnt offer any warrenty with the car, as it was a private sale. To my knowledge the car was in perfect working condition, as confirmed by the nct.


does anyone know anything about this?

Caveat emptor. You should tell him to fuck off, show him the nct results if you must, but it's his problem.

I think under "new"(ish) EU rules, you are liable for some of the costs, even in a private sale. That said, a timing belt has a warranty all of it's own. If it has failed well within the x number of miles, ye both should have some come back on the manufacturer.

thats what im thinking. He was at some rally in mallow when it broke down. One part of me is thinking he drove the shite out of it and somehow messed it up.
Im not sure where i stand legally though. I read some stuff about selling the car and it had to be in a good condition but the nct prooves this.
Iv heard stories about buyers taking sellers to the small claims court about similar cases
