Do I qualify for compensation regarding used car repairs?

Question Details: I purchased a used vehicle with a 30 day warranty on the transmission and engine only. The dealer promised all safety features would be repaired upon sale. On the day of the sale when he was showing me car, I noticed that I couldn't open the hood. He said it just needed some WD40 and pulled it open very harshly. I not knowing much about vehicles figured that was a common problem and drove off. bout 8 days later, my first time taking, the highway my hood flew open up and shattered my windshield while I was in the fast lane. A mechanic nearby said all the safety features in the hood failed because of how rotted they were. I tried to reach out to dealer but he won't respond to my calls or texts.
