Unhappy C240 - Was I sold a lemon?

I amy a first time owner and purchased my C240 in 2002. Since the purchase, I've had nothing but issues 1) taillights, brakelights blown monthly 2) I have tha front/back breaks changeed yearly (is that normal) 3)Heater blows out cold air, part has been replaced 3 times, just to name 3 of the 100 things that are going wrong with this car. The fuel pump was replaced early on due to malfunction...NOW, I was driving, the car started to putter and then died. Tried to give it gas and it was not getting any. I started up but as soon as I stopped at a light..it died and didn't start. Now when I turn the key, it cranks and keeps cranking without my hand on the key. CAN ANYONE HELP???????
