While stopped behind 3 vehicles at a stoplight I Florida a female who said she was unfamiliar with driving her husbands stick shift vehicle stalled out. Two vehicles in front of me pulled around her when the light changed, this left about twenty feet between my car and hers. She accidentally put the car in reverse and backed into mine at about 15 miles per hour. When I started to get out of the car she pulled forward fifteen to twenty feet before the engine of her car quit. As I watched to see what she was doing she got the car started and put it in reverse again hitting my car again. She did this three times before getting it in a forward gear and moving forward without the car engine stalling. At no time did during this did the airbags in the Seville deploy.
