Default 2007 convertable .... Problems.... HELP

Hi every one, I,m hoping there,s someone who can help me. I bought my 2007 convertable 3 weeks ago, and I have to say she's the love of my life. BUUUUT i have a few worries. First of all on the day i picked her up she sat on my drive for a few hours ( my drive is quite steep) then on starting she kicked off big time! bunny jumping down road and no power she wouldn,t get above 2000 rev,s. this stopped but i would say that during the 3 weeks i've owned her the engine light stays on for 90% of the time and i continually have the bunny hopping episodes. should I take her back or is this something simple that I could be doing. I put nice petrol in her, because I thought it could be dirty petrol.Also She goes through more petrol than the garage can supply ,Any ideas I,m seriously worried.

Bring it back to where you bought it and have them fix it?

You did bring it to a mechanic to check it before you bought it???

Sounds like the Camshaft Position Sensor.

Thanks every one, just to add a little more there's a blast of very hot air coming out of the exhaust when you put your foot on the eccelarater, could this still be to do with the cam shaft ????
