Buyers Guide Limited Warranty on a used car

Purchased a used Lexus from a Subaru Dealership. Buyers guide was marked with a limited warranty indicating the balance of the factory warranty - drive train 7 years 70,000 miles. Six weeks later, the engine blew. I was still within the 7/70 warranty and had the car towed to Lexus. Found out the origional warranty was 6 yrs/70,000 miles and was informed the car had its engine replaced previously and the new warranty was 12 months unlimited mileage. This warranty expired 2 weeks before I purchased the car. Subaru refused all claims by pointing to Lexus as the warrantor. Eventually, Lexus did fix the car under ''goodwill'', but I want Subaru to take responsibility. Where do I go from here? Does the Magnuson_moss Warranty Act apply to me?
