Although the buyer didn't do his due diligence, I'm sure the dealership has to disclose the warranty information.
I would check your contract and see if there is anything on there that mentions the warranty issue and or new/used status of your car.
It sounds like they sold it as a new car and didn't disclose any information on the status of the warranty in which case they will have to honor the warranty from purchase date.
