Am I Liable for the Lawn Mower Expenses?

Thank you for your time in addressing my situation. I was recently served a civil paper in regard to a riding lawn mower I sold. The mower was sold with no warranty even though we never put that into writing. The sale was made several months ago. I delivered the mower and showed how it operates and runs to the buyer before they made the purchase. Two months later they send me information stating the mower is not running and wish a refund. I let them know the mower was sold with no warranty and was theirs but I was willing to come by and assist them if possible to get it running. I was able to meet them only once and they left the key on so the battery was dead when I got there. I do not believe I am liable for the return of monies because they now can not get the mower to start. Can you advise me if I am incorrect in this belief. Thank You. Read more [...]

She proceeded to drive onto the interstate highway and when she got 2 miles down the road, she skidded off the road and spun around stopping in a ditch. Fortunately she is fine and except for her car rim (wheel) and an expensive tire. The dealer had the car towed there last Read more [...]
