I must have got a lemon

I bought a 1998 XZ2 in the spring of
1997. I have had continual problems
with the brake system throughout the
life of the car. I've had it back to
the dealer at least 5 times for the
same intermittant clunking noise, that
the dealer can't seem to pin down.
I've gone through two sets of rotors in
40,000 miles. In April of this year,
the timing belt jumped off, for no
known reason, to the tune of $700
repair work (it is out of warranty).
That should not have happened at only
38,000 miles. The radio on-off switch
is malfunctioning, half the time the
radio won't shut off.
Put a CD player in the dash, not the
trunk, and improve the radio.
