"the worst car ever!!"

i purchased my grande punto (1.9 multi jet sporting) in Feb 2008. i have had so mny problems with this car that it is in th garage more than it is driven and sometimes for up 2 2 weeks. the electric windows go up and down only when they want to. when braking in reverse u hear an awful grinding noise. the car loses acceleration mainly in 2nd gear altho i had quite a scary experience in the fast lane of the motorway! or pulling out on2 a busymain road and it deciding it doesnt wan2 go anywhere! the car also decides not 2 start sometimes and when it does it often comes up that my car had 'excess temperature fluid' the needle goes al the way 2 hot and i av 2 turn the engine off and restart it. very embarrassing especially in a busy petrol station. the car has been in the garage at least 5 times and the only thing they have fixed is the bluetooth which took 2attempts as the first time they done it it didnt recognise the english language! everytime it was in 2 b fixed i had 2 pay 2 insure myself on a courtesy car due 2 my age and fuel it an expense i shud not av 2 incur 4 a brand new (should b) reliable car. it is going back in agen this saturday. it makes me so angry that they find this acceptable even though the problems never seem 2 get fixed. maybe bcoz i am a 19 yr old girl and not a stocky male! i dont know! i just wan2 get rid of the car now but wudnt want any1 2 buy it how it is. my advice is do not buy 1 they are unreliable, very poorly made and their customer service is shocking.
