Continued Problems With Trane AC

I had a NEW Trane heating and cooling system installed in 2003. Within the first 6 months, I had to have 3 service calls on the central air conditioning units.
In 2005 the Start Capacitor broke and had to be replaced. In 2008 the central air units had to be recharged. In July of 2009 the Compressor and Variable Speed fan had to be replaced.
Although the compressor was still under warranty, labor was $700, and the variable speed fan was out of warranty so that was an additional $315. (The repair company felt sorry for us and didn't charge us labor for installing the fan.)
In October 2010, the central air conditioner quit running again. A couple of parts were replaced and the ac system was recharged. On May 28, 2011, the compressor quit running again - and tripped the circuit breakers.
What fun it was to go all holiday weekend with no central ac system and outside temps of 95+. The service man is coming today. If I could, I'd replace the Trane system with a more reliable one.
I expected more from a $9000 ac system installed 8 years ago. I am extremely disappointed in the quality of Trane. Take my advice - DON'T BUY A TRANE SYSTEM!
