Aaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!! Stupid Cars

We have a 2011 Focus. It broke down Sunday, October 30. We had it towed to the dealer and its been there ever since; ten days now. They keep finding new problems every time they get one fixed. First it was the power control module (computer controlling the transmission). Then it was the valve body (brains of the transmission). Now, it is still giving error codes, but never the same ones, so there's something electrical. What the hell? This is a 7 month old car!!!! Ford or not, THAT is ridiculous.
Day 18 update: Yes, day 18. Crazy, huh? More things wrong. The electrical harness shorter out and the clutch and drum need to be replaced. Twelve more days and we can pursue it as a lemon.

Yes I do, but I didn't choose it. My Chevy is fine, and its 2 years old with 50,000 miles. And honestly, I don't care if is a Yugo. At 7 months old it should not be experiencing multiple catastrophic failures.

Quoting Wtshubbypst:
