I sold my used car to a private party, can he contest the sale after title has been transferred and ask for refund?

Mountain View, CA |

The car was running, they did a test drive, they did all the checks they wanted but did not brought it to a mechanic. They signed the title transfer, agreed on the price ( on the higher end of the blue book value) and made the payment and drove the car away. 1,5 day later they call back to claim that the direction has a problem, and a mechanic estimated the cost of repair to 800$. The say that we have to pay for the repairs because the price they paid for the car was higher than the car's value on the market.
