Frustrated...

I have a 2016 jeep compass. This vehicle has 29k miles. I have had the brakes go out, rear ended, random lights show up on the dash at different times. I bring it to the dealership and they tell me they can not reproduce the issue. My vehicle throttles up when i turn the wheel, when on the brake and turning the wheel. Not just a little burst, but higher 3k rpm surges. Today on my way to work, i pulled of the highway after drivng 22 miles to work. I make a left hand turn, the cars stutters, the rpms race and fall down, no matter how much throttle was applied i couldnt get it above 15 mph. It was stuttering and surging the last 5 minutes of my drive. The panel lit up like a christmas tree, then three lights remained. A red lightning bolt was flashing, the traction control light was solid and check engine light was solid. I pulled into work, shut the vehicle off. All lights have gone out, except the check engine light. Any ideas as to what the heck is wrong with this car? I have never bought a brand new car before in my life, my first one, bought with 17 miles 2 years ago last week! It has been a ridiculous headache. What kind of devil vehicle have i gotten into?!?! Any ideas would help! I have to wait for a dealership until tomorrow at some point... Looking for some possibilities.
