USed car broke after two weeks - what should I do?

I bought a used Ford Focus (2005) two weeks ago and the gearbox cable selector broke. The garage I bought it from fixed it, but now the car is difficult to drive and change gear. What can I do?

Take it back to whoever sold it to you and first it the first time and tell them to fix it properly or give you your money back.
