Should my used car come with a warranty from the trader I bought it from?

I brought a car from a trader in November. It says on the paperwork that the car comes with the car manufacturers warranty only. Should I be getting a warranty from the trader too? Am I in my rights for a full refund within a certain time of purchasing the car?

Basically, the trader is liable for any significant fault that could have been present or developing with the car on date of sale for 6 months from date of sale, so if a manufacturer warranty claim is refused, the trader is liable:
