Will my 2003 Rover 75's failed head gasket be covered by consumer legislation?

I bought a used 2003 Rover 75 two months ago from a car sales showroom. The head gasket blew last week and subsequently at the garage the block was found to be cracked on my car. If my warranty does not cover me for this work, (there seems to be a bit of a dispute at the moment), I want to make sure that the car sales showroom is liable for the repair of the car instead. Could you tell me if I'm covered by the Sale & Supply of Goods Regulations in this case?

Consumer legislation takes into account the age of the car, the mileage and the amount you paid for it. You may get a contribution. Find out what they are offering (if anything) and come back to me.
