2010 Focus - Brake and Engine Trouble

Purchased last Thursday. I'm a sucker.

I can feel some shaking in the brake pedal, and there's a hollow sound when driving and when breaking. After purchase, the dealer service dept. said the brakes had residue from sitting in the lot. They sanded the brakes to remove the residue.

Now, only the second day driving the car, every time I come to a stop the engine sputters and all the electronic devices (radio, turn signals) blank out for a second.

The dealer keeps saying he will fix these issues, but claims to not be able to find any issues.

It turned out the check I had written was written from the wrong account, so I told the dealer to take back the car. But the dealer threatened to cal the police, so I re-wrote a check.

Am I stuck with a lemon? Is it usual for brakes to make a hollow sound, and to feel the wheels shake/ the road through the brake and gas pedals?
