Punto 1.3 multi jet 2012, engine cuts after getting speed up and then slowling down

Morning all,

I am a complete car novice! Brought the car 3 months back from a dealer and had issues after a month.

The car starts fine but when I take it on the motorway or an A road get it upto 60/70mph and have to slow the car down queue or roundabout the engine will cut out, even before Iíve stopped.
It starts again fine, however when I turn it back on the headlights dim and go normal like itís got a heart beat. Revs change from 8/10 every few second rather than ticking over solidly.
I have to keep reving hard to stop it cutting.
Took the car back and he looked on the computer for faults but found nothing.
Any ideas?!? Thanks in advance

Hi, Just a sales garage.
Iím getting 60+ mpg.
When the engine cuts out and I turn the car back the engine isnít ticking over smoothly. The engine gets normal ticking over then sound goes lower like itís going to cuts out. With the engine sound the headlights are fine then they dim like the engine has lost power.

Yes that works fine... and when Iím driving around normally 30/40mph itís fine. Itís only when I get a bit of speed up for 10/15 mins then the car wants to die. As I said the mechanic didnít find any faults on the computer but itís just excuses from them.
