Mercedes Benz named in class action over safety issues related to its M272 or M273 engines

Mercedes-Benz USA

Mercedes-Benz-logo

 

Plaintiffs brought a class action lawsuit against Mercedes Benz on behalf of themselves and all other similarly situated owners and lessees of Mercedes Benz branded automobiles equipped with Mercedes M272 or M273 engines in California.

As alleged in the complaint, the engines are equipped with defective gears in their balance shafts (in the event of the M272 engines) or with defective idle gears (in the case of the M273 engines). These defective gears wear out prematurely, excessively, and without warning, causing the vehicle to malfunction, the “check engine light” to remain illuminated, and the vehicle to misfire and/or stop driving. The only recourse is to have the balance shaft or idle gear replaced, which is a large scale repair job, taking numerous days and costing several thousand dollars. All the while, Defendant Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (“Defendant” or “Mercedes”) has known of the existence and manifestation of this defect, as is documented in its own internal documents, but has failed to take appropriate corrective or remedial action, and has concealed and affirmatively misrepresented the existence of this defect from unsuspecting owners and lessees. Plaintiffs are among the numerous owners of such vehicles that have had faulty balance shaft or idle gears, and have incurred thousands of dollars’ worth of repair bills as a result. Defendant’s conduct with regard to the sale, distribution, and repair (or lack thereof) of these vehicles amounts to a violation of Defendant’s common law and statutory duties

Mercedes’ M272 engine is a v-6 engine first introduced in 2004, and found in the following Mercedes model vehicles in the following model years: Mercedes C 230, SLK 280, SLK 350, and CLS 350 (2004 to present); E 230, CLS 280, CLK 280, C 280, E 280, SL 280, C 350, E 350, S 350, SL 350, and Viano (2005 to present); R 2801 R 350, :NIL 350, and Sprinter (2006 to present); S 280 (2007 to present); CLC 230, ana CLC 350 (2008 to present). Mercedes’ M213 engine is a V-8 engine first introduced in the model year 2006, and found in the following Mercedes model vehicles in the following model years: E 50DIE 550, CL 500/CL 550, CLS 500/CLS 550, and GL 500/GL 550 (2006)’ GL 450, S 450, and :NIL 450 (2007); :NIL 5001ML 550 (2008); and, CLK 500/CLK 550 (2006 and 2009). The class seeks to represent owners and lessees of the foregoing model vehicles.

I, too, have experienced this problem with my 2007 MB CLK 350. My independent mechanic has replaced the balance shaft in the vehicle's engine with an OEM balance shaft kit obtain from Mercedes Benz and according to Mercedes Benz Technical Repair Instructions. However, it has been discovered that the success rate for this repair is relatively low, due to the amount of metal particles distributed throughtout the engine from the initial failure of the defective gear, which in turn creates premature wear on other internal engine components and blockage of internal oil passages. The success failure rate of this repair is not widely known outside Mercedes Benz sources. While the repair and replacement of the balance shaft in my vehicle has been accomplished, serious issues continues to exist due to oil/metal contamination, even after several internal engine cleanings. It appears that the damage caused by the failure of the balance shaft gear, may have created irrepairable damage to the internal components of the engine.

I am having similar issues with my Mercedes Benz 2007 C230 just had the transmission rebuilt and now need an entire valve body replaced that only the mercedes dealer can repair. This should not be happening on a so called luxury vehicle that you pay a premium price for so that you can have better quality. I would like someone to contact me from the legal team immediately!

I was just notified by my Mercedes dealer that I have the same problem with my 2007 CLK 550. It has a defective gear in the balance shaft and the repair will be around $5000 dollars. The car has been babied and has only 35,000 miles. I bought a Mercedes because it was supposed to be a premium automobile. It seems the only thing that is premium is the cost. Mercedes obviously has known about the problem but elected to let their customers swing in the breeze. Great customer service and P.R.!

I also have the same problem with the balance shaft and misfire readings on my 2006 Mercedes ML350 at the Mercedes Dealerships. I've taken my vehicle to 3 different Mercedes dealerships and received diagnostics and they all seem baffled on exactly what is the plan of action other than saying it will cost $5000-8000.
Please contact me as soon as possible as the car is sitting and unable to use until this problem is resolved. It is currently sitting at the 3rd Mercedes Dealership in Atlanta Ga.

I have a 2006 C280 and spent close to $6000 having this problem repaired. Mercedes knew it was an issue and had a prepackaged kit. I demanded all the old parts, and the material used was not to the right specification to last as long as the engine. I still have the parts. It seems that Mercedes should be liable. How do I sign up for the class action

Have a 2007 GL450. Balance shaft problem diagnosed when dealership ran diagnostic on the check engine light. $6,000 repair bill & MB has directed me back to the dealership (who has maintained the car) for assistance. They offered $300. off bill. I have not noticed any problem when driving the car & so now am curious if it is just a scam because the dealership is pushing me to trade for a new car. Is there any indication that the part is failing or will my car just stop running? Would like to be included in any class action suit. MB purposely withheld information. Multiple times I asked the dealer about the check engine light & was told that I just needed to tighten the gas cap. Now that it is out of warranty I am told about this problem. I just put $3000 in new struts & hydraulic summer 2012 & never did they warn me of this potential problem when I debated putting the $3000 into the car. MB seems unconcerned that this may affect their reputation. Quite a sad surprise.

I am having the same problem. I've been told at least three time by my independent mechanic that when I fill my gas tank up, the left over fumes will vapor out, which is what smells inside my car for days as well in my garage. It's been so bad at times, I parked my car outside of my garage. The last time I took my 2005 E500 I was told the "rings" whatever those are were wearing out. I've been having this problem for over a year. Please contact me.

I would have never bought this car if I had known about the balance shaft problem or repair, especially if I had known that Mercedes wasn't standing behind their product. So unfortunate and surprising for what I thought Mercedes represented.

2007 ML350. CEL on and sensors 0016 and 0017. Went to MB cost of fixing is $6400. Know a bit about engines and for this problem to happen so soon on this car is a joke. 70k miles out of waranty. Cam shaft balancing and therm needs to be changed. Good to see that MB stands behind thier product. How can I join the class action law suit?

My checked engine light came on right after my warranty of 60,000 miles was met. So it came on between 60,000 and 70,000. I took it in and they told me it would cost $5,000 to fix the cam. I have not taken it in yet and the light is still on. I also followed all the maintenance proceedures. I have every bill I paid for every thing on this ML350. It is my first Mercedes and I have been disappointed with this check engine light/cam problem.

i just bought a 2007 Mercedes C230 with just at 100k im the second owner and the car is in great shape but the check engine light came on and the is giving a p0015 code which means crank shaft off. I was told by the Mercedes mechanic that the teeth on one to the pulleys that the timing chain goes around is falling apart and that causes the timing chain to throw off the crank shaft sensors. So now I have no car because I don't have 5k to put into this car.

2007 c350 with 55k miles - check engine light came on in May 2013 MB dealer diagnosed with error codes 1200, and 1208 for balance shaft issues, would cost about $7700 to repair. This appears to be an engine defect and why consumer would needs to pick up this bill. This is outrageous if MB doesn't take case of these issues ASAP.

Same issue with check engine lamp and Balance shaft failure diagnosis by mercedes dealer. 2006 R350 with 75626 miles on it. I have been told it is a defective designed part and replacement part was madified to avoid future failures. Mercedes offered to pay half of the 7k bill to repair. I don't think so, a DTB addressing this was sent out in 2009 while my vehicle was under warranty yet they didn't fix it. Mercedes needs to cover all of these costs and collect from their vendor who sold the crap part.

I have 2008 cls 550 was diagnosed with same issue. Check engine light been coming on for years, each time been told nothing is wrong, topped off fluids and sent me on my way.. All this occurred while under warrenty. Now out of warrenty storage memory has recorded the code for this problem over 200 times.. MB offered 50/50 spilt on $8000 bill as if its half my fault for buying a car with defective piece. Better business should be made aware of this. Its unprecedented to have so many cars with the same issue with a known defective piece.. Initial class action failed possibly because weren't enough cases to show it as wide spread problem.. I think now the courts will recognize this a wide spread problem that is related to this defective piece that wears out prematurely. MB should be held responsible. MB practice is to encourage owners to trade their cars in with incentives, as a result 2nd owners are left holding the bag for the entire cost. Im so disappointed with MB and way they conduct business, prior to this issue was going to buy the cl550 this year but I would never award a company for screwing me and so many others over. . I encourage eceryone to contact the better business bureau..

I'm having the same problem with my 2006 clk 350. I got it in October on a Sat. and on my way to work that Mon. the check engine light came on. I immediately pulled into the service department of the MB dealership I got the car from since I happened to be passing it shortly after the cel came on. Since then, I have had my car serviced several times, sometimes having to take it back twice when the problem wasn't fixed the first time. I feel like I was sold a lemon. What bothers me is that most people know a car is a lemon when the lemon is sold. On Wed., 6/5, the check engine light came on again and I heard a noise like the engine was backfiring. Just prior to that the low voltage light came on. Go figure. I also have problems when I start the car. The engine turns over but nothing works. The entire instrument cluster doesn't come on, the seat belts don't operate (mine come forward when the car is started or when I close the door of the car), the radio doesn't work, the windows don't funtion, etc., etc. It's happening more frequently now always followed by a display reading 'ESP unavailable' when the systems start to function again. The first time this defect happened was when I was picking my car up the second time I brought it in to be serviced which was shortly after the first time. (Which was right after I bought the car and the cel came on.) I brought it to the attn of the service advisor however by the time he came outside to check it out, the problem wasn't happening anymore. This is my first MB and trust me, it will be my last. I have never had a car that's required so much service and attention in such a short amount of time and I'm deeply disappointed.

They just called and said that codes were coming up saying I have something wrong internally with my engine. I don't even want to know how much that cost! I do love my car but I have three kids too. I would love to be in on this lawsuit. Please keep me posted. I will report back when I get the actual results from the "engine specialist". :(

OMG, having same issue, 2007 c230 sport, out of warranty, I bought the car used from CarMax three years ago and the check engine light came on as I was driving out the driveway. was told that a fuse could trigger the engine light. well now the light doesn't go off at all and is declining in performance. took it to my local mechanic shop that works on BMW and Mercedes to get the news of the balance shaft, cam, timing chain issues with codes p0016 and p0017, and was told it would be thousands of dollars to get repaired. called Mercedes USA and was told that I had to take car into a dealership for diagnostic at the charge of $165.00 when I've already paid for this once, this is plain BS. So here we all pay good money for a so called luxury car that we think will last us and we all get pieces of crap, REALLY?? This is my first Mercedes and will definitely be my last. I do not have the money to pay for repair, the balance of the loan I have on car exceeds trade in value, and we can't get smog to pass with the check engine light on. Mercedes has really screwed thousands of consumers in this matter and most of us have our hands tied. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE HERE, As it is NO FAULT of ours but we are the one who are paying on their behalf?????? This is just totally wrong no matter how many miles are on ones car, this is something that should NEVER happen to our cars. please count me in and update me on the case.

My check engine light came on in my 2007 R350. The mechanic replaced the cam sensors only to discover the balance shaft needs to be replaced. It cost me $260 to get the sensors replaced and now an estimated $8000 to replace the shaft.

I am also having the same issue with my 2008 ML63 AMG. In Australia, we pay almost double the cost of USA residents for a prestige MB so the frustration in these continuous never ending repairs is becoming ridiculous. We buy these cars for the safety of ours families to have our engines cut out on us in the middle of the road and to be told to bring it in for diagnostics and then there is nothing wrong with the car. I never knew a vehicle that decided to just switch itself off whilst decelariting into a slow turn !! Our 2005 SL65 had exactly the same ESP warning light problems and balance issues so bad infact the car parked unlevel and would bounce up and down the road until it leveled . Can you imagine buying a car for half a million dollars that does that. We will never buy an MB again. They are only good for the first few years and then better off in the rubbish pile. What an absolute disgrace Mercedes Benz .

My valve body went out on my 2006 E350. Only 70,000 miles on it. No warning, just locked into 2nd gear (limp mode). I've been told by multiple mechanics that this should have been a recall. A luxury car should not have these problems. At least not with so few miles on it. I'd like to be included.

I have a 2006 CLK350 convertible with only 37,000 miles and just got the CEL on, therefore I took the car to my mechanic who told me that the codes were P0016 and P0017. I started to research about the problem to find out that what I thought was a respectful and responsible company is not being responsive to a problem they are aware of. I would have expected that a company of that caliber would take immediate action to not only correct the situation for future happening but proactively solve the situation to actual owners of cars with engines MB knows have a manufacturer defect. One of the reasons I bought this car is because I have a 1999 C280 with almost 200,000 miles and still running perfectly, therefore I thought I would be safe buying this one without knowing I was acquiring a problem. What is really bothersome here is not the fact that there is a problem with these cars, is the fact that Mercedes Benz knows about the situation and does nothing to resolve. It is like slapping your face and telling you too bad, so sad. I guess I will re-evaluate my project of buying an E class after this ungrateful experience and I would take any opportunity to put this company in evidence.

My 2007 E350 had the same problem in June 2013. Initially the dealer in Germantown MD said it would cost about $6,700 to fix. I then did some research and found out about this inherent defect. I contacted the dealer again and he brought the price down to $2,600. The offer was open for a few weeks. I ended up paying the $2,600 and fixing it. Firstly this is a case of "failure to notify", secondly they withheld information. If I had not done my due diligence they would have ended up charging me $6,700. If there is an ongoing class action I would like to join it. I feel I was financially harmed. I have a lengthy email record of all my communications with them and they refused to answer my questions.

2006 Mercedes E350, 59,000 miles, suffered balance shaft gear failure. No support given from Mercedes goodwill, despite purchasing the car new and having full dealer service history. Car is part of an agreed part exchange with dealer for an approved used E350 wagon. Dealer will not honour part exchange until balance shaft issue is repaired.
After many phone calls to Mercedes car is now being repaired by a specialist, and have pulled out of the part ex deal. While I understand Mercedes has quality problems, what is important is they way the company supports customers with know issues. Unfortunately in the case of Balance Shaft gear failures there is no support. Consequently this is my 3rd and last Mercedes Benz.

BMW 535i wagon will be its replacement.

I have a 2006 C280 Mercedes Benz and my timing chain is ready to go out close to 92,000 miles. I first found out about it when I took my car to get an emission test. My emission test failed due to engine problems. I have taken to a couple repair shops to get an engine diagnostic. They are telling me it will cost me $4,500 to $8,000.00 to get a timing chain replace and engine repair. My oil light comes on even though my oil level was good. When I was at the repair shop, my technician opened up the hood to show me the engine running with a slapping noise. When you turn on the engine the car will misfire when you turn on the engine or when you go reverse the car will cut off. My engine light stays on while the car is running. This is not good and this is crazy. Especially, when I am making my monthly car payment and pay the high cost of car repair even though Mercedes know about the defect issue. Before I make any decisions to get this car repair, what should I do? I need an advice from a legal professional and Mercedes Benz Car Repair Specialist who repair Mercedes Benz. Please add me to this list. Thank you.

Hi, I own a 2006 ML350 with 100k, as with many other MB owners, I constantly asked that the light be seen to and today was quoted by MB here in Sydney Australia $AU6000 to repair the same balance cam shaft problem as with MANY of you other MB owners, we purchased this vehicle for its supposedly superior engineering! However, our MB dealer looked dumbly into my faced and said that he can possibly give me a discount. WTF! The check engine light came on at approx 75,000km- this car is driven gently by a family woman- no hooning here!!!! How can a balance shaft problem happen on an engine that is still in its supposedly early life!! I have three friends with MB's and the same problem! Enough MB- stop hiding and man up to your problem. If possible, please open this class action up to Australian residents as well- as I'm sure there are thousands of us here withthe same problem.

The service advisor suggessted that they fix it for around 6,000 and I keep reciepts and if there ever was a recall they should reimburse me the money. This is not what i expected from a 57,000 car ,so i guess you really dont get what youy pay for with Mercedes!!!!!!!

When I stopped to purchase gas the car started misfiring and the CEL came on. I drove it to my office (1/8 of a mile away) called the dealership and although the car would still run I had it towed into the dealership. They called to say that after 6 hours of diagnostic work it was determined I needed a new engine to the tune of $13,000. I called Mercedes and was told they would contribute $1,650 to the repair of the vehicle. I want to join this class action suit.

I have a 2006 E350 and it has 8,3000 miles. I spent $5,000 for replacement a transmission rebuilt one month ago. A week ago, the check engine lights on. MB said I need to replace the balance shaft and its cost is around $6,000. I was very disappointed with the MB car. I'm wondering if I just threw it into trash tank or not. Thousands of car have same problems, but MB has not took any action about this issue. The MB just have concealed it although they have known that 'balance shaft' has a defective. MB's reputation obviously will fall down and lose a lot of customers if they do not take any action to many of mercedes owner. I hope many MB customers to constitute a special organization against MB for this issue and USA customer affair to appeal to MB a recall for USA customers.

Where do I begin? I recently had the balance shaft replaced in my R350---$8000.00+ because that's what I was told was the issue because the check engine light kept coming on. That's the latest repair. A few other repairs-- leak through the front dash-- was told the the tray that usually traps the water was blocked-- $1500.00+ to repair a blockage. Please add me, that's not half of what I've paid.

I own the 2006 R350. May 2012 I had to bring the R350 into the MB Dealer for a check engine light. 5 weeks later the car was returned with a new balance shaft gear. The R350 had 102,000 miles when the problem was diagnosed. Thankfully, I had purchased an extended warrantee that terminated at 104,500. The repair would have cost $6,500. I still have and drive the vehicle each day. It has 125,000 miles currently. The only other repair ( fingers crossed) since then, has been the airtronic shocks in the rear of the car. Cost $1,100. Price of the extended warrantee 2,600. Costs of repairs under warrantee over $14,000.

I had a diagnostic check done on my 2007 C230 two day ago. The code read P0017. The mechanic told me that the balance shaft will need to be replaced and cost is about $4000. My car has less than 60k miles. I bought this car new and started having problems with the check engine light within the first three years of ownership. I've had other problems as well.

I have only owned the car for less than a year and this CEL pops up with this code. I would love to be included with fellow MB owners who are disappointed with their great luxury rides! Count me in!

I bought a 2007 GL 450 and have 69,900 miles on it. Check engine light came on and the dealer told me that the idler gear is worn out. it damaged other parts as well, like the intake manifold and camshaft magnets. Total quoted repair cost was $7,500. Warranty declined saying that the parts are defective and too early to wear out. Any solution?

Is this class action lawsuit still being pursued and how do I join the class action suit? Also, are there any other class action lawsuits? I am located in New York. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I went to the dealer and asked if it would be covered under a recall or warranty since I heard about the class action lawsuit and they said no.

Just starting to experience these issues on my 2007 C230. The balance shaft if failing at 60k and I also have that nagging "Gas oder" problem after fill-ups.
I will not pay 4-5k out of pocket for an issue they are aware of and trying to avoid because of the detrimental cost to their profit margins. :( Thought I was getting my first sweet ride :(

We just dumped our 2006 e350 near mint condition for 7500.00 because mechanics want 9000 to repair engine. 4 dealers offered us 7500.00 for the car, coincidental? I think not, the word on the street is these engines will eventually fail after 5-7 years. An absolutely horrible experience with German engineering.

In addition to already having to completely replace my engine a couple of years ago - my 2006 R350 has had a multitude of issues. The engine belt tensioner needs replacing after already recently replacing the "idler" was just replaced. The power steering pump replaced twice... now discovered it was this same issue that the steering gear SHAFT is the causative problem and needs to be replaced. Other issues are faulty sensors... headlights, taillights, coolant (need brake ware harness wiring update). Sway Bar links too & front suspension lower control arm bushings cracking. Brakes replaced 5 times almost once a year. The rear hydraulic shocks needed repair when I noticed about a 4 inch tilt from right to left one day! And this is just what I can remember off the top of my head!

I have just been informed that my 2006 C230 that was just in for service yesterday and broke down this morning due to the intake manifold flaps deteriorating and being sucked through the engine. I am unsure of the total damages at this point. I have been informed by the mechanics that it will be at least one week with no car, and an undetermined price tag as of yet for the repair. I stopped driving as soon as it misfired but the damage was done to all the cylinders but 1. I was informed that they have seen similar problems to this year, make and model but this is the first one they have seen with the pieces in the engine. What can I do my extended warranty recently expired 2,000 miles ago. This should not have happened and should not cost thousands to fix.

I paid $1,600 for that repair at my mechanic who also works on our Infiniti; During diagnostic, also had codes 1200 and 1208 come up indicating "failed balance shaft sprocket"...and he recommended seeing dealer because they 'would cover it up to 200K miles. Called dealer and was basically laughed off the phone when I asked/hinted that the factory might cover the costs. They said it'll cost me about 5K $$$. Not a happy camper right now. BTW, car runs great after the vacuum leak was fixed but light is still on.... Would love to get MBUSA to pay not only for the balance shaft issue, but also the faulty intake manifold as that seems to be a systemic issue also after reading about it on lots of forums.

I bought a E350 2 years ago it is a 2006 I just hit 101 thousand miles and now it is shifting weird its driving like it is in limp mode I had the code read today because the check engine light came on It is reading valve body solenoid. I was looking on the MB forums and a lot of people are having the same problem I press on the gas to do 45 miles an hour the car is reving at 5000 rpm's. I have a 5 yr old daughter in my car everyday this is a repair I can't afford. They should have a recall on it since there is so many problems with this part

2006 E350, codes 0016 & 0017, down on power 20%, dealer who I bought the car from wants $8000 mostly because according to their records I have not visited the dealer to be charged as often as they would like.
After half hour of heated discussion I was asked to leave.

I have the same problem with my 2006 Mercedes R350. The check engine light comes on, and the car stopped working right in the middle of the highway at a point. The dealership mechanic just diagnosed that a worn sprocket on the Balance Shaft is impairing the position of Camshaft of the right cylinder bank relative tho the Crankshaft.

They gave $14,000 in repair estimates, of which $8,000 is for the Balance shaft alone. Let me know if you know any aftermarket solutions - parts and reasonable mechanics are out there that you know.

Bought 2006 E350 ~4 years ago w/~45K miles. A couple of minor problems but otherwise has run well. Up to ~95K miles and about 1-2 weeks ago, engine "Check Engine" light came on (Car passed CA smog recently, tho). Sounds like it is part of this problem. Taking it to a mechanic in the next few days to check the code. I would like to be part of this class action suit. Thanks.

check engine light (CEL) came on with code P0015. 2007 C 280 and the engine number falls in the "bad" number range. 67,000 miles. Mercedes Benz replaced both solenoids on the front of the engine. check engine light has not come on again...that was 2 weeks ago mid December 2013. Hoping I don't have the balance shaft issue...but it doesn't make me feel good about driving a car that may have problems. I bought the car because I thought it was reliable. I may not have the problem, but now I'm worried. Do all M273 engines that have engine numbers that fall in the "bad" number range have the problem, at some point?

My 2006 E350 "died" this past Saturday and this morning they quoted me about $8200 to fix the balance shaft issue. The service rep said he could talk to the dealer about a discount. He came back with $7055 [which I don't have!]. I am reluctantly going ahead with the repair because I can't afford a replacement vehicle right now but I would like to opt in to any lawsuit.

I just had my 2006 E350 repaired at local mechanic. Had 70,000 miles, and local MB dealer confirmed P0016/P0017 codes requiring balance shaft replacement. Cost me about $4500. CEL had been on for 6 months before I got worried and had it diagnosed. With the volume of us that are having this problem, it baffles me how MB is not required to stand behind these cars. Do we need to put this on national TV to get attention?

I have a 2006 ML 350 with same issues. My check engine light came on two years ago and it was the Solenoid. it drove fine and i did not see any issue. however in the last few months i had a new problem with the gears and the car will sometimes not drive after i come to a stop or will go slowly but at very high RPM. to fix I have to find a place to pull over, turn it off and restart it. Turns out it is the intake valve. This issue I need to fix because of safety.

I took my ML350 in to my Mercedes-Benz agent in Monterey California in August 2013 and had my front propeller drive shaft replaced because of a heavy vibration and clicking sound. That cost me $735.80. My check engine light came on in December 2013. The car went into second gear and would not shift to a higher gear.The next day, Mercedes Monterey paid to put my ML350 on a truck and took it in to Monterey where according to the codes, the gears in the drive train were damaged. The tech said by looking at the color of the transmission fluid, I would need a new transmission or a transmission exchange of between $5500 and $7000. He said the transmission was not repairable based on these codes. I asked him to drop the pan and replace the transmission fluid which they charged me $405.28. They said this was not worth doing. They then reset the check engine light and I have been driving at up to 60 miles per hour with all gears being selected normally for the last 200 miles, with the check engine light off. Today the check engine light came on again and I have done another 40 miles with gear selections as normal, but worried about when the car might go back to safety default mode of second gear as I have been told, or no gear at all, which requires turning off the car and restarting it to get second gear. Mercedes has never recommended that the transmission fluid be changed in Sacramento,where I have had the car serviced since 2006 even though I asked them that while they performed many services over many years. Whether this is a driveshaft problem or a transmission fluid problem that has caused my transmission to fail or some other cause, I do not know, but I would like Mercedes to pay for my transmission. I have owned this ML 350 since it was new in 2004. I do not have plus minus $6000 to fix this car and there seem to be many people drive shaft and transmission failures on this site. I would like to join this class action lawsuit.

Dad owns 2006 R350, dealer knew about our balance shaft problem and did the lazy cheap fix because they were already charging $7500 for transmission R&R!(I have Proof they knew, the DTB for the oil leak is the SAME one that diagnoses the balance shaft) They just concealed the problem by replacing the camshaft seal to hide it and on "cause" they just wrote leak, DUH anyone can look at a leak and say it's leaking, that's not WHY it's leaking! 1.5 years later which is now, I can literally hear the chain grinding against the gear, I am very technically oriented and was doing full maintenance on my dad's car when I found the balance shaft problem this weekend(I found a gear tooth while draining oil too), this is an expensive and long job for any technician and they need to fix their crappy defective gear for their well paying customers.

I have an E350 - 2006 that has had the engine replace at around 65k miles. Recall information is not received. I've learned more about recalls by reading posted issues with these vehicles. I've had a previous oil leak, which was repaired. The same problem is back, however, that's not why I took the vehicle in. I took my car in to address what I thought to be transmission issues. My car was shifting gears on its on. I would have to pull over and turn off the car in order for the gears to reset. Diagnosis : replace transmission plate at 1750.00, when the part per my research is 350.00 and not manufactured by Mercedes Benz. Oil Leak. There were no signs of an oil leak, where did the oil go. What did it damage internally. How can I be sure I want have further issues with the transmission. I'm told by service rep, this will take care of everything . Before closing , no messages were displayed as it relates to the transmission issue or the oil leak. I have taken my car in several time, not one time was it recommended to change transmission fluid or service transmission. The check engine light came on for one day. I called dealership to tell them of problem. I had to wait a week to get it in because they had no loaner vehicles. I had other issues, not related to vehicle... Customer service.

The same set of engines will also exhibit a second similar problem associated with the valve guides which were also installed without adequate quality checks on their ID.

I purchased my Mercedes 2007 E350 in 2011 with 77k miles. I was driving on a 8 hour trip when the check engine light came on telling me to check the engine oil level-level may be low. Once I arrive to the nearest gas station with light and the engine cooled down. The engine oil level was slightly over the full line. I also had my transmission to fail at 117k miles. Dealership wanted to charge $7,000 to replace with their OEM transmission and labor. I haven't seem the oil light again yet, but I wonder if it is related to the defective balance shaft other have experienced. I do not think that this is fair for a vehicle that I intended on keeping for a while. I think Mercedes Benz USA should fix it for free. Please add me to this law suit.

Same issue!!! Bought my car with 28k miles- now has about 100k and had to have it towed into the dealership 4 days ago because it wouldn't start. Got the call yesterday that it's the balance shaft needing replaced... $4000 repair. I'm definitely nervousness about paying for this repair especially after reading the reviews and issues most people. had post repair from this forum! Someone please contact me!

I purchased my Mercedes 2007 CLK 350 in 2014 with 81k miles. I was driving when the check oil levels notice came on the notice board. Once I filled the oil level, the warning light was still there, and I called the dealership, they said the oil level was too much and drained it. A few days later, the CEL came on and now I am told I have CEL codes 1200/1208 and need a balance shaft repaired which will cost me $6500 at the dealership plus tax and labor! I think Mercedes Benz USA should fix it for free. Please add me to this law suit.

i have a 2006 r350 i recently purchased. after a week the CEL came on with the p0016 and p0017. after a few more weeks the cluster lights all came on and shut off while driving and the esp light came on. now i have p0335 p0016 p0017 p1208 p1200 p0703. Mercedes was one of the first car manufactures in the world. They really need to stand behind there products and fix these issues. there is no way all these people have the same problems with the same engines and it not be a manufactures defect. i really love my R but will let her go if I have too.

Have the same problem with my 2006 Mercedes E350 4matic. Just over 100K the check engine light came on. Several days later the car lost power and had to be towed to the Mercedes dealership. Diagnosed with balance shaft issue & needed a fuel pump. Replaced that for ~$1400 on their advise (said it might resolve the problem) but check engine light still on. Now needs the balance shaft replaced even though it is still running smoothly.

Bought a new E350 for cash. There was a defective assembly regarding the balance shaft sprocket. Dealers received a Service Bulletin, but kept it secret from the customers who would be affected. This was a negligent design and construction. The car was defective when I purchased it from Keyes Imports in Van Nuys. They sold me a defective vehicle and knowingly kept it a secret from me. Now they want more than $4,000 to repair it. They refuse to even look at the car without getting money from me first, just to tell me what I already know. I don't trust Keyes in any way, shape or form. My car can't pass a simple smog inspection and faces destructive damage if I drive it.

I had a 2006 E350 and had the exact same problem. My CEL came on around 90,000 miles, mechanic said he could not find any issues but reset the system and it turned the light off. It happned again at around 96,000 and again he was able to reset. He thought the cause might be a defective sensor. The light came on for good at 96,000, at 97,000 the mechanic found shards of metal in the oil pan, and told me that I was one of the "lucky" ones who had a defective sprocket. I contacted Mercedes directly, I was told on three separate occasions that this problem was unique to me and there was nothing that could be done because I had not serviced by car exclusively at Mercedes dealerships (although I had had it serviced by a technician who was certified by Mercedes) I sent letters and posted Facebook messages only to have them ignored and removed. My mechanic told me that it would cost $8,500 to fix, I had to junk the car.

I have a 2006 ML350 that has 100,000 miles that is showing timing codes that normally warrant engine replacement. (Cam timing TSB) this was diagnosis from first opinion of an import specialist. I took my car to McGeorge in Richmond and they said the test with SDS found codes of 1200 and 1208 and that it would cost 6,500.00 to repair. I am getting a third opinion from a family owned Mercedes repair garage that has been in business for 28 years. They tell me they see it on a very disturbing regular basis and can repair them blindfolded. (Will repair for about $1,500.00 less at least.) This is how I learned of the problem!

I took our ML350 to my mechanic and he looked at the gear on the balance bar and said it is damaged. After checking the internet he advised me it is a common problem and that MB is replacing the defective part with corrected parts. He refused repairing it because of his concern of more damage to the engine from pieces of the defective gear. I took it to the local MB repair department and they said it would cost me over $7000. Previously, the driver seat heating mechanism shorted and set the seat and my wife's sweater on fire was she was on the interstate. Never again will I buy a Mercedes.

I had the same issue. 2006 C230 sport. Check engine light was on at 89k miles, would go into limp mode intermittently, remedied by restarting engine. Finally it stayed in limp mode and the shop was getting codes for camshaft, solenoids, and other non-existent codes. Finally narrowed the issue down to conductor plate needed replacing which had to be ordered directly through Mercedes. Now the ABS malfunction/ESP malfunction messages come on intermittently especially when driving in the rain. I just bought the car used. Please include me in this lawsuit.

Estimated is between 7 and 10k. Depending on type of replace motor used (new or rebuilt). They are saying that the engine overheated which caused damage to the head. This despite the fact that my temperature gage never read hot. The vehicle has 135,000 miles on it but I took great care of it.

Michael F. said

Count me in in as well! I am very familiar with these type actions because I have over 20 years in manufacturing as a supplier quality engineer. We had a very similar issue when I worked at Yamaha with our golf car rear axle gear failing. The problem is they try to use softer gears so the sound does not resonate throughout the engine compartment. Problem is, when you have a set of gears (like a chain) that have different AGMA class ratings (how hard they are) the weakest one will always fail first. That’s just common sense. So, if the MB design engineers cannot figure that out what the Hell else is going to fail in the engine? The reason they did not immediately change the shaft design is because that would show fault. The court would ask: If there was nothing wrong with the design of the Cam Shaft then why did you change it? So, that is why they busted their ass to launch the new model mid-year; just in case they lose this one they limit their exposure in the market. By the way, Yamaha did the right thing and recalled all the Golf Cars and fixed them at their cost for millions of dollars. Maybe Yamaha needs to start making engines for Mercedes….

I have a 2006 C280, check engine light came on has been on and off for the last 3 weeks. Took the car to the Mercedes Benz dealer and was told I have the M272 engine and the repair will cost 6K to fix. I was told by the mechanic Mercedes knew the engine was defective, however due to my mileage there is nothing they can offer me to fix their defective part. I live in Kansas City, MO.

I have a 2006 E-350 with just over 110,000 miles and I too have been informed that I need a repairs to my Cam Shaft and Timing Chain. The estimates have ranged from $2,600 to $8,000 depending on the condition Cam Shaft and the length of time it would take to complete the repair. I would love to be a part of this quest to be made whole. Surely the number of complaints posted should prompt a positive response.

I bought an used 2006 CLK 350 cab. with 22000 miles on it. After driving about 1000 miles, the engine light is on and off, most of the time stays on. I brought to a mechanic who specializes in Mercedes has informed me that M272 engine has notoriously camshaft problem causing the engine light on. The cost to fix it runs about $4000-$5000. Now my car is sitting in my garage and I am afraid to drive it until it gets fixed. Mercedes should be responsible to this defective part and labor. Please contact me, I would like to be part of the lawsuit to against Mercedes to pay for the repair.

I just bought my r350 at 97000 miles. Now I have 107000 miles and got the p0016 and p0017 codes took it to mercedes of morristown and they diagnosed the problem and said that the balance shaft gear needed to be replaced with the cost of $5500. I have had cars with more mileage than this and never had this problem. This is due to poor workmanship and they will not even help pay for their problem. I thought by buying a mercedes that they would have superior products but I guess I was wrong!!!! Hope we can resolve this issue for us and everyone who may have this problem in the future.

Yes, I am having the same issue with my 2006 E350 I spent almost $3,000 so far on getting it fixed at MB Dealership. After speaking with my customer service rep he explained to me that the balance shaft if bad and to replace it; it will cost from $6,000 - $8,000 which I think is crazy. Please include me in class action law suit.

We have a 2006 ML350 with 101k miles. The Check engine light is on with P0016 and P0017 codes. It is the balance gear that we need to replace. These SUVs and Sedans suck big time and Mercedes Benz stealership does nothing to help its customers. People never buy Mercedes with M272 engines.

Same issues on my 2006 ML 350. CEL came on and then engine began to noticeably shake with a significant loss of loss of power. It shudders in both park and idle and the cause obviously involves an internal component of the engine. I am having it towed to my trusted repair station where they will check codes but based on all the reading on this that I've done, it is a VERY COMMON problem. This happened just one year after I had to have a complete (rebuilt) transmission replaced to the tune of over $7,000, also which has turned out to be a common problem. Mercedes refuses to stand behind their product and this has to stop. I'll follow up with the results but if they take the same position that they did on the transmission, I will definitely want to be included in a class action suit. MB needs to be held accountable for not standing behind such a serious defect on such an expensive automobile. It's a shame because it is a great driving car and I have faithfully and consistently followed recommended maintenance schedules.

I own a 2007 Mercedes GL450 equipped with an M272 engine that has about 130,000 miles on it. 2-3 weeks ago the “check engine” light went on. My mechanic told me that the censor needed to be replaced, but a few days ago the engine started to make noises and I took it to the dealer. After inspection I was told that balance shaft gear needed to be replaced at a cost of approximately $6,000. The car is not drivable anymore and I can’t afford this repair cost. I found that this is a common problem for this engine and a class action suit was filed. I’d like to know how I can join this suite and if it would be possible to join if the car is registered in Florida? I need to sell the car to scrap since it's unreasonable to repair it. Could i get the compensation from MB after that if we win the case?

We recently purchased a used (1 previous owner) 2007 GL450. Probably drove it only <100 miles prior to a longer trip we just now took from Bay Area, CA to Reno, NV. The car would not accelerate past 60 with the gas pedal pushed all the way down to the floor, the car appeared to have shifted gears or sounded like the engine was struggling once we exited off of the freeway (2nd time we encountered this). After putting the engine on park, and changed the gear again, the car went back to "normal." We hope this hasn't been the worse decisions we've made on a car purchase. PLEASE include us in this class action. Did I forget to mention the car, an SUV, seems to drop down and lower itself when parked after long periods of time. Is that supposed to be a hydrollic feature??!!

No warning sign comes up. I just went out againg to start the car and my gages still are not working and my radio didn't come on until I restarted the car again. My air doesn't work as well. I will take it to the mechanic today, however I am concerned do to the fact that I do not have any warning signs. If it is not to late to join this class action I would like to join as well.

2006 E350. Engine serial number per MB bulletin has car within range of the balance shaft issue. I read the 1st class action suit and the reason for dismissal. The reason for dismissal is flawed. MB issued their technical service bulletin acknowledging and addressing this design flaw while these cars were within warranty and it would seem, still in production using the under - spec'd gear. This is clearly negligence.

I am experiencing the exact same issue. 2007 S550, 7-speed automatic transmission, 57,000 miles. Started about 6-8 months ago. Check engine light now starting to come on. Requires turning off the car waiting a few seconds and restarting to reset the gears. Experiencing very rough jolting type shifting, most commonly occurs after being parked on a incline or decline. Occurs when driving up or down an incline. Also, occurs on the freeway or after using cruise control. Transmission shifts from first to second gear and stays there until it's restarted. Very dangerous when driving in heavy traffic or on the freeway. After researching this issue I cannot believe it simply hasn't been recalled. This is a very dangerous issue...I will not allow my wife to even drive the car unless I am with her.

Engine light turned on today. Took my C230 (2006) in for diagnostic and came up with P0025 and P0012. continuous camshaft adjustment right and left side. I was told by outside mechanic to call Mercedes. once I gave code, he said you should dump your car and buy another one. He said you are looking at a minimum of 4K. In two years I have had the camshaft actuator replaced and the solenoid. I want to join in this lawsuit.

My 2006 e350 constantly goes into limp mode. Mercedes should recall the car and do the right thing. Buy an OBD for $40 bucks and clear the codes yourself or just dissconnect the black negative cable on your battery overnight to clear codes. It does not fix the the problem but keeps the car driveable until Mercedes steps up to the plate and tries to retain its customers! I would like to join suit. Use to be you could count on Mercedes for quality but Asia has it scared. I can't believe they would even build the new c class front wheel drive korean designed piece of crap they put on the road.

My 2007 ML350 had a check engine light come on prior and then suddenly failed to allow operation of the car. It was the balance shaft issue described in the class action suit. I had it replaced by a local repair facility for several thousand dollars and now have other issues with this vehicle. Mercedes should be ashamed. The vehicle had 94K miles when it stopped operating altogether.

I own a 2007 Mercedes Benz, this car has been beautifully maintained, this is why I was surprised when my check engine light came on, and later I was given an almost $2000.00 bill by Leith Mercedes. What truly bothers me is they never hinted that this was a known concern or issue for owners, just gave me a bill and a smile, but something did not feel right, therefore I decided to fine out if there were other Mercedes owners like myself, who had done their part, rather to maintenance, care and service of their vehicle, but still found themselves facing defects and high repair cost. I have been personally responsible and exercised due diligence relative to my vehicles integrity and longevity, now I think it is time that Mercedes matches my level of responsibility relative to their "luxury" product. I did not buy this vehicle because I wanted to take short trips around town, I want the freedom to go where I need to, without having road side assistance and hotel.com on speed dial, just in case I do not make to my destination.

The check engine light came on 2 days after I bought the clk 350 and has been coming on and off ever since. Now it's on and stays on. I was told nothing could be done because the warranty was up even though the problem occurred pre-warranty expiring. The dealer said the intake manifold tumbler flap shaft is broken and that's what's causing the check engine light to be on. Please add me to the lawsuit.

I have a 2006 e350, just came from the shop and was told about this balance shaft issue. $4400 is the cost to repair where that can easily be a down payment towards a new car. Now im online and see that this is a serious matter. I understand cars eventually need repair from the wear and tears especially here in nyc, but not from the negligence from supposedly a reputable brand. Would also like to join in this class action lawsuit.

I contacted Mercedes Benz to report the problem they refused the claim, I paid a mechanic $1500. To tune up the car at less than 100k miles. Mercedes Benz refuses to acknowledge my claim unless I pay the dealership to diagnose and file a claim for me. The CEL will not go off the car is not drivable and it jerks sporadically. My issue remained unresolved. I cannot pass emissions kn the state of Georgia. I get the same readings p0016 and p0017. 20k dollars cash gor a car 3500 worth of repairs and the car is not drivable

I have been having this same issue. My 2007 Mercedes E350 will get stuck in gears and I have to turn the engine off and restart. Very scary trying to get on the interstate and you car is stuck in first. Please inform me more about this lawsuit.

I was told by a mechanic that worked in a mercedes dealership for 12years that they know about the problem and it is a fault in manufaction, because the intake camshaft and exhaust camshaft is constantly adjusting causing wear, this should not happen , it should only adjust occasionally for fuel or air intake. My ml350 2007 has only 70k cost $7000.

I am the original owner of a 2007 C230. I always took it to the dealership for my services. I only have 45,000 miles on my car and was just informed after my diagnostic test of $157 at the dealership that I need major repairs on my engine - mechanical fault in balance shaft sprocket/timing chain, etc. The generic codes that I got from 3 independent repair shops before I went to the dealership are P0016 and P0017 on the engine light which are crankshaft/camshaft related. The repair cost is $9,000 and could be higher after they take everything apart to check out the rest of the engine. I had been having an intermittent engine light problem that I had been complaining about for years, and the dealership told me everything was fine with my car and not to worry. Well, now that my 4 year warranty is over, but not my 50,000 mile warranty, they will not honor my 50,000 mile warranty for my engine, transmission, airbag light, electrical issue. The dealership wants $395 to diagnose my transmission, $160 to check my airbag light that has been going and off and $160 to check my on and off again outdoor mirror lights. The service department also confirmed that my right exhaust to be off - that is an emissions issue. The dealership and MBUSA will not help me. My car's performance has gone down hill, and I think that my transmission is going out also. The transmission is slipping. The car drove worse after having my diagnostic test at the dealership while driving it home. My car is literally falling apart. I'm afraid to drive it to get other estimates. The warranty for my repairs is good for only one year. A new engine is approx. $15,000. This whole scenario is ludicrous. I can't sell the car and I shouldn't be driving it. It is a major safety hazard. They should have had a recall. It turns out MBUSA, the dealerships and independent repair shops have been aware of these problems for years.

I was also told that the computer had a problem that is common and would cost another $5,000. I've replaced the rear air suspension already. and additionally have an issue with the tail gate latch that I'm told is also a common problem that cost upwards of $500 to fix.

Same issue, 2006 Mercedes-Benz E350 model. Shortly after I bought the car just a couple of months ago it seemed not to be shifting properly, or it felt like the engine was stalling.

I am having the same problems. I own a 2006 C280 with only 68k. The check engine light came on, I took the car to the dealership and I was told the crankshaft needed to be repaired, this repair cost me $6200. It has not been a year since the repair and my car is leaking oil, I took the car back to the shop to see why oil was leaking from the oil pan and found out the oil pan was not sealed properly after the crank shaft had been repaired. Two months later I realized the car was still leaking oil so I took the car back to the dealership. Mercedes kept my car for 14 days and I was informed the repair took longer because during the test, the check engine light came back on and the oxygen sensor had to be replaced. I picked my car up and less than a week the check engine light came back on. The car is currently back at the dealership. I'm really up set at this point. I am thousands of dollars out of cash and I still don't have a properly operated vehicle. I feel like I have been scammed by a reputable dealership MERCEDES-BENZ. This dealerships name and vehicle is suppose to stand behind its performance, I'm beginning to my doubts. Please add me to the law suit

Own a 2008 C300. Had the check engine light on for a while and was told by my mechanic at previous checkups that it was just the O2 sensor (not major), but at the latest diagnosis by my mechanic said there are now error codes (P0022, P0012, P0025) indicating issues with the left and right intake and exhaust camshafts, as well as timing chain. Apparently MB used faulty materials and they wear down prematurely in these engines and would require a rebuild. He spoke to the MB dealership and they said this is a known issue and that only they are the only ones authorized to repair these issues, and quoted me $9000.00 to fix it. California law says it must be fixed in order to pass smog, so I am forced to have the car fixed (or sell it to someone who will fix it themselves). Not sure what to do, but I would like to be included in the lawsuit. Thank you.

Hello,

Is anyone on this site willing to speak with me regarding their car issues? I've been on this site and many others over the past couple of months, and many of you have almost identical problems to what my Mercedes has gone through. I really want to take action and make lasting, positive results for all the victims. I am here for JUSTICE.

I unfortunately have not heard back from the attorney, or made any significant leaps and bounds with taking action against these fraudulents. Please, if you would like to further talk to me about how we can take this case off the ground, I think we could really make some headway, at least just by talking about it. But, we have to work together on this. If the attorney gets back to me, then fantastic! We can get going.

I actually have a lot of information that could be very useful in this case, for all involved. Once again, and I want to emphasize, we can all benefit if we work together on bringing down the culprits. Please email me, and I know it may sound like a strange email, but it happens to be the most secure email I have at the moment, and this is the only information I want out there. We can exchange numbers once you email me.

Ilovequinn397@hotmail.com

Please. Let's chat. Two heads are definitely better than one.

Thank you. I hope to speak with you!

Of course, if this attorney returns my email, that would be the best first course of action!!! Please, if this attorney that is reading this now emails me back, I would like you to represent me and my mother. We have MAJOR issues with Mercedes Benz right now and really need to get this going! Thank you!!!

I purchased a 2007 SLK 280 in 2013 that had 83,00 miles showing on the odometer. Vehicle VIN: WDBWK54F07F139695
Vehicle Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz
Vehicle Calibration ID: 00344676400200690054489110020002
At 90,000 miles I took it to my local MB dealer for the Service Pack D service which was completed to my satisfaction. Within 3 days of picking up the vehicle, it started running rough and showed a P2015: Intake Manf Runner Position Sensor/Switch Circuit Range/Performance bank1 fault code. This was on August 16, 2014. Upon returning the vehicle to the MB dealer, they replaced the Intake Manf Runner on Sept 12, 2014. Three days later, the engine started running rough again. Once again, I returned the vehicle to the MB dealer. After several days of testing, the dealer started a ticket with the Mercedes Benz technical team. Subsequently, they installed a new wiring harness (no change) and ultimately replaced the engine control module. This appeared to stop the engine misfire but caused the engine check light to come on showing P0016: Crank-Cam position correlation and
P0017: Unknown code fault codes.
As of Dec. 6, 2014 the engine intermittently runs rough and is showing P0016: Crank-Cam position correlation, P0017: Unknown code, P0305: Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected, P0128: Coolant Thermostat, P0300: Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected, P0304: Cylinder 4 Misfire Detected, P0354: Ignition Coil "D" Primary/Secondary Circuit, P0355: Ignition Coil "E" Primary/Secondary Circuit fault codes. Most of this appears to be from the Engine control module not being able to provide correct information to the engine due to its inability to determine the correct Crank-Cam position.
I did purchase an extended warranty when I purchased the car. However, they now want me to pay for an engine tear down ($4800) so that they can examine the parts to decide if a repair is warranted.
Through all of this, my dealer, Carlton Mercedes Benz, has gone above and beyond in their efforts to help me with this issue.

I believe that this is a failed design issue and that Mercedes Benz has a culpability here to fix this problem.

I have a 2006 R350. I have the same problem. My engine serial number falls within the range for the defective balance gear. I also have the front differential bearing failure problem. Additionally, my vehicle leans to the right (suspension defect).

I was actually yold because check engine light was off again it could not be read! It can be read up to 50 starts! My check engine light came on again last weekend and this week MB of Knoxville Tn from my emailing the Service Mgr in Oct with complaint on the guy that checked me in. I got the codes read and car looked at for free, what a joke! The same codes I had read at an autoparts store in Oct was there again that they had Ignored! Intake manifold flap broken, oil leaks, and they wanted $1950. I insisted to be told was my car in the list of engines made that were faulty, it is for the crankshafts that go bad. I paid for the thermostat to be replaced this past summer also. Service man upon my asking what if it goes, he said they would help on the cost for the crankshaft. However who wants to pay 225,350,1950 then help pay for a faulty crankshaft. Also I bought the car certified Oct 2008 when MB knew they were selling me and everyone else faculty crankshafts by then without a doubt.

Mercedes Benz should do a recall and FIX this problem. I consider this to be very poor customer service on their part. My husband and I would love to join the lawsuit.

2007 S550 was having shifting problems, got fluid andfilter change at recommended 80k miles.. Then after the change deiving along, went to deccelerate and the car start stuttering and just stopped and shut off!! It was a hard loud jolt like i was being hit from behind! Luckily a semi truck/18 wheeler or another vehicle period wasnt flying on my tail or i would have been hit because it just locked up before i could find a pulliver spot. End up being a trans contact plate $1400 i couldnt afford but had no choice since i didnt want to die or kill somebody else because this high class luxury vehicle has a piece of crap transmission. Also, the transmission performance in the winter is no where near the same as the summer and i ALWAYS let it warm up 1st. Sad, ppl invest in these vehicles only to be put in a dangerous situation that Benz has to be sued to correct. Just do the recall and honor your product.

I am having the same issue with my 2006 E350, concerning the cam shaft. Mercedes Benz dealership replaced the wire due to an active campaign, but that didn't turn off the check engine light. I took the car to my mechanic who took out the engine and informed me the cam shaft was shattered, and the repair will cost $4500. The car is still at the mechanic, as I am not able to afford the repair right now. I definitely feel that Mercedes Benz should cover all expenses of these faulty cam shafts.

ML350 Mercedes-Benz 2007 I started my car last Friday and the engine light came on, I called the Roadside Service they came to pick up the car and I received a call from the Representative 5 days later telling me that they could not find out what the problem was but the technician wants to get paid and that he will have to diagnose the car and call me another 4 days later to tell me that my engine was gone. when I asked him how can that happen, he told that it could be my driving habit, second the year of the car and third it could be the cylinder's head inside that is damaged. I requested from him a written diagnosis he then told me that he will not be there he had to go to a workshop for the week. Cost for the job $ 6575 and his boss will give me a discount of $500. off. I took a loss a few years back with a C230 that had the same problem but I had no idea that the company was selling this kind of product (lemon). I feel Mercedes Benz should be responsible for the replacement of the parts, this should actually be a Recall Issue on the part of Mercedes-Benz because all their series has the same problem. It obviously is a major problem that they need to be responsible for but instead they are digging in our pocket for more money when all they sold us is a LEMON.

Also I took it to the dealership last week, they quoted me $3600 dollars worth of work. Non of the work they want to do will solve the acceleration, ignition, nor the cutting off check engine light problems. They just want to fix the suspension, like the bushings, bearings and the seals to fix the oil leaks. They also claim they found contamination in the break fluid and transmission fluid needing a flush and replacement. I also replaced the right fog light, drove for two days and the now the left light is out. $70 dollars a bulb to replace..

I had the same issue with the s550 I purchased in Sarasota Florida. When I picked the car up at the dealer encore motors.I made it around 3 miles to the interstate then the check engine light came on and I called them as soon as it did.they gave me the big run a round.bring it in twice but they really knew what was wrong with it.so the 3rd time I took it back they said it was the cam shaft gear but I all ready knew that from reading post's on the web.the manager called me and told me that I would have to pay for the parts,$1000.00 and they would pay for the labor on the phone. Lol I drove the car for 3 miles and have to pay another grand bullshit. I went to see him in person and asked him if he would like to have a news crew here so I could tell the public my side of the story.he wanted to know if I was making a threat.I said no but let's the public know how they do bissiness. Then I left around a half hour later he called me to say they were going to fix it for free.I did some research on the company they do between 30 million and 40 million in sales every year. All you people hold your ground Mercedes knows what the problem is the company in England that made that cam shaft gear did not cool the steel property. Now they have to take the front part of the motor apart to get to that little gear.

I am having what sounds like a similar issue with a 2006 Mercedes C280 Luxury.
I've been driving on the freeway at speeds exceeding 55 mph and the car just dies, but then will restart after repeatedly hitting the gas pedal.
I just paid $3270 to have the transmission rebuilt in my car after being told that the car would not go into 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th gear and now the car is randomly dying on the freeway.

Please advise of any recourse known and what/how to fix this issue. Thank you

2006 C230 with 140k miles. I have P0016 & P0017 codes. I did the visual inspection of the position of the markings with the crank at 305 degrees and I definitely have the balance shaft issue.

Everyone needs to watch this video and do an inspection. It's only 2 bolts that need removed to confirm that your timing is off due to the balance shaft wear.

I am the original owner of a 2006 C280. I have approx 110k miles on my car. I am also having this issue with the cam shaft in need of repair. The dealer also refuses to assist with the repair costs.
My suggestion is to follow legal advice regarding this issue and to seek out a "mbusa master mechanic" that would like to make some extra side money. They can repair your vehicle for half the cost that the dealership will charge you as well as you will still be able to receive the expertise of an experienced individual. The parts can be found for this repair at www.genuinemercedesparts.com/
My estimated repair cost from the dealer was just under $7k.
If you live in Florida contact me for a referral to repair your vehicle.

I own a 2006 C230, and complained to the dealer re:the car doing a jerk when it's about to do a full stop. They said it's a transmission problem which they replaced but once replaced it's still doing the same. Told them also regarding the car shaking when it down shift to 1st gear and when in full stop, the car will shake and check engine light on. I was told it's the ignition coil so what they did for the meantime is switched 2 of the coils and told me to see it that fix the problem or not. But the problem happened again and I went to shopping around and one Independent shop told me that my intake manifold is broken and they need see if there's more damage in the engine which I'm sure the idle gear was damaged too that 's why the car is shaking once in a full stop. It's also possible that the balance shaft may be affected.

Please include me in his class action. I have a 2006 W350 which was bought under warranty in 2011. My dealer estimated over $4,000.00 to repair it. He also refused to consider a repair kit due to the low success rate. He said it just wasn't worth the trouble. So I had to decide if I would repair it or pay my house note and the car note . So since it was my only car I fell behind on both the house and the car while trying to pay for repairs and I am still catching from money spent on repairs that didn't work.

The car had 99,000 miles on it. Downtown LA Motors wanted $13,000 to replace the engine saying no guarantee it would not happen again. I wrote a letter to MBZ and requested they replace the engine. MBZ offered $1,900 for labor against the $13,000 but nothing more. No repairs were ever done and car has been in storage since March 2014.

Unfortunately, I bought a used 2006 MB in June, 2014. The engine light recently turned on, then disappeared. I guess this was the prelude to the dark result. When driving, the car suddenly would not shift out of second gear, and had to drive home at about 15 miles per hour. How scary and dangerous this was. It has now been sitting in front of my house for over a month not knowing what to do since quotes of the repair might exceed the price of the car! On Monday, May 18, 2015, I received a notice from a class action suit stating that I may be eligible for a reimbursement for the thousands of dollars it will take to repair the cost. My problem is that I do not have this kind of money to start the ball rolling! I will still apply to see if I am eligible, but I will also be writing to the BBB, MB headquarters, and the local TV stations. I know that the recent news involves faulty airbags in some cars (with my luck, the only other car in the family), but maybe with some exposure, this too, might make the news. This car has 87,000 miles. My old 1990 Ford truck held up better than this!

Hi,
Bought an used 2007 E350 couple of years back. CEL started to show and gears would not shift. Pull over (yes on the highway too) and turn off and turn back on and everything is backt onormal.
Took it to Halloway MB in Manchester, spoke to the tech, supervisor and then the Service Manager. All claimed that Vehicle is out of warranty. 8 yrs and 55k miles. My point is this is a computer control that failed. Dealer made me pay 2k and currently it seems ok - but I am not holding out my breath!

By the way, spoke to MB corporate (Anna) who called me twice and then even told me that she relies on what the Service director has told.

My question - Is this a wear and tear or manufacturing defect? I need an answer for the top Engineer at MB.

Guess this is my "first" and certainly the "last" MB ever.

I am even more upset after the courtesy call since they agitated me by even blaming me for misrepresnting the issue.

I don't care about the money...but the MB name has been tainted.

Suresh

I have a 1999 E20-4Matic with a 134,000 or so miles this must have been a blessing for me to end up on this page .I purchased the car used but oh my GOD all of this seem like my nightmear when we brought it had maybe 67000 miles things were going good for a while but when they went bad , they went bad.The service light came on and know it is a permanent feature. The only thing I can say is I thought I was losing my mind all these happen to us within a few months at a time and mind you we are on disability and just did not have the the money for all these different repairs 1st the blower system went then our old favorite check engine light still there they says front lower ball joint s loose, power steering rack assembly with tie rod toe set, customers had concerns about what causing check engine light to come on needed to replace left and right catalytic converters and left on sensor total $3355.40 also in June r&r belt pull $458.90 also half of the electrical parts don't work my car was paid off but it needed so much work I had to take a loan against my car that is just unreal is there anything that can be done for us.Disability in Alaska

P0016 and P017 along with the (some flap) am told the I need a whole new intake manifold. The originally told me I needed a fuel pump kit. Luckily I did my homework and found the lawsuit over the fuel pump and they had to replace it for free. They were not happy. However, that was not the problem. They then found all these other problems which will cost me almost $4,000 to fix and I have no idea how to get it fixed. Im a single woman, paying for my daughters college and cant afford to fix it. I truly believe MB is hiding so much information and misguiding people. I need to my car fixed ASAP.

Hi everyone. I bought a 2007 c230 sport a few months back. It's been throwing codes p0015 and p2006 intermittently. After learning of the balancing shaft issue I'm a bit concerned. When I asked the dealer to run the vin all he told me was his computer shows no red flags for my vin but didn't and couldn't tell me my car definitely is or is not included in the issue. Is there a database of affected vin numbers somewhere that I can search for a definitive answer?

PLEASE file a complaint to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration online http://www.nhtsa.gov/ . Its really the only way to try to get some justice. A RECALL is the only way to go in this situation. The settlement that was offered means very little in the grand scheme and is worthless to the person that owns the car that has the issue. Getting a few hundred people to file a complaint with the NHTSA is the only hope. Shame on Mercedes, your brand is junk! I do not care how nice it looks, how much it cost or the way it drives. BMW and especially Audi is taking you to town and rightfully so.

Please notify NHTSA at http://www.safercar.gov. Numbers count! Your action will help prevent injury and or death!! Here is the text of my complaint: Exited onto freeway offramp and car engine shut off (there was a little shaking prior and check engine light went on). Was able to start the car (SLK 350 with 51K miles) again and drive 1/2 mile to look for parking spot. When backing into parking spot, car engine shut off again. We were able to drive the car back home - on freeway - and drop at repair shop - but, we were scared to death. After researching what could have happened, we learned our choice to drive was not wise as people have been killed due to this type of defect - 13 deaths. See http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2014/03/what-to-do-if-your-engine-dies-when-you-re-driving/index.htm. I located a final approval of a class action lawsuit related to this defect - for which our vehicle qualifies - HOWEVER - many people do no know about it and/or cannot afford the high cost of the repair as the settlement covers nothing for older cars and the repair can be as much as $9,000. Other coverage amounts are limited to 70% or 37.5%. This is a very serious defect that could easily cause injury and/or loss of life. A recall is needed. Here is a quote from another owner: "For approximately a year now, my car has not been operating correctly. I have taken it in to the dealership and they have done some repair work that seems to correct the issue for awhile only to have it reoccur. Recently, the issues are manifesting themselves more often. Gears shift on their own while the car is in operation. I have lost complete power while on the freeway and major surface streets. My car is a 2006 SLK 350 with 65,000 miles. Someone is going to lose their life because of this problem" Other quotes can be found here: http://gotaclassaction.com/mercedes-benz-named-in-class-action-over-safety-issues-related-to-its-m272-or-m273-engines/

Please add my name to the lawsuit as well! 2005 CLK500 with 96k miles cannot clear the check engine light. This morning it started to go into limp mode in a right turn at highway speed, I have had the entire front suspension replaced and all wheel alignment done... now it creeps left (tries to keep going straight in a right-hand turn). I have had multiple mechanics inspect and they say that everything is correct with the suspension and alignment. I thought it was going to shut off this morning in moderately heavy traffic going highway speeds and it goes limp.

I have 2010 S550 and the problem just started at 50,000 miles, just as the factory warranty ran out. The dealer is trying to bail out since the factory warranty ran out, and even my extended warranty company which is affiliated with Mercedes, is trying to shove the problem to the owner as an "usual wear & tear problem" since my car has 50,000 miles on it. I believe that this is a serious safety issue that MB is trying to avoid addressing, since it would involve a colossal recall of so many cars out there with the major engine safety defects. Before anyone gets seriously injured or killed due to unexpected engine failures and fires, MB owners must come forward and file a class action suit! The previous settlement only applied to 2005-2007 models but much newer models are having the same problem, which implies that MB has failed to eradicate this serious safety compromise in the later models.

I just bought a 2006 Clk350 from a Car lot. I was not aware of these issues, but purchased a warranty upon purchasing Mercedes just to be safe. What can I do my check engine light is going on and off no other symptoms except slight rattle. I will change the oil and have it inspected this saturday. I will be disappointed with Metecrdes supposed to be the best automobile if something major is wrong. I will probably sue or ask for money to be returned, I have only had vehecile a week!

Hi, I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan to pay the duty tax of my bank draft and to start up a new business. I was at the verge of loosing all my belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested. Although I was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and then I began to look online and ran into their email at: (r_nelsonfinanceltd@yahoo.com ) where I was given a loan within 72hrs without knowing what it feels like to be scammed. So I promised myself that I was going to make this known to as many that are in financial stress to contact them and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan.,

I own a 2006 C350 Mercedes Benz, and I have the same problem with the balance shaft, needing to be replaced. Went to the Mercedes Benz dealer and they essentially quoted me $11,700 for the job, broken down into (3) distinct sections all leading back to the balance shaft gear. A ray of hope, they offered a certified rebuilt replacement engine would only be $15,000 + labor to install. Please put me on any list currently seeking a recall or class action remedy. It’s unusual for a consumer to have to absorb this because of substandard materials used by anyone, esp. with such a verified fault/defect . . . pointedly at Mercedes Benz

So sickened by my 2006 mercedes E350. Already spent over $4,000 a few years ago, and now it won't pass smog test. Got ticketed for not having a dmv sticker, even though I paid for registration. When I went to dealership, they said it would cost $9,500 to fix. This is outrageous! It only has 120,000 miles on it, and I can't pay for fixing it. What a dilemma. This model should have been recalled long ago!

My 2007 CLK350 has been nothing but a problem after spending $3500.00 in repairs now I have an Intake Manifold that has to be replaced due to the faulty and broken plastic arms Mercedes used as part of the actuator. That is $1300.00 to replace, and now I see my engine number is a match with this balance shaft issue? My God when will it end I have had my car for almost 2 years, 4 months of that the car was semi drivable. I have owned Mercedes my whole life since I was 18 im now 53. I have never had such a horrible problematic car. This is my only car and I cannot keep putting money into it to find out I have to spend more money! I need help!!!

I am having the same issue with my 2006 ML350. The dealer was aware of the issue when I purchased this vehicle. When I took the vehicle back when I was experiencing issues they never noted it on the service invoice so my visits to the Mercedes Dealership where not documented. When the lawsuit class action lawsuit was mailed to me I submitted the info along with the original receipts with an explanation of the issue and it appeared it was rejected. I still have a vehicle that can't pass smog with over $8,000 repairs needed for the balance shaft. Mercedes is not going to hold their dealership responsible. I took my vehicle to two private mechanics and received information that supports the balance shift issue, however, Mercedes said I need to go to their dealership (pay more money) and maybe ( yes MAYBE) they will see what they can do. Again no one is holding Mercedes accountable for this. The dealership knew the car had these issues and allowed me to purchase without disclosing. Can I sue them?

I have a 2007 GL450 with the same issue. I’ve hope it wasn’t this issue and replaced a few possible parts that didn’t change anything. So after farther research I’ve found that too many of these particular models are having the same issue. I took it to the dealership hoping that it was a recall of some sort to to learn that there was no recall and that the engine would have to be pulled out in order to fully diagnose the car. I am extremely upset about this and feel cheated. I’ve personally owned over 10 Mercedes in my life and still own 2. It’s by far, my brand of choice and I’m used to a certain quality that I’m not getting with my GL. What can I do?

Girlfriend purchased an 06 ML350 that was within the class action suite when purchased but the dealer did not notify her of this problem. The car has been a piece of junk since day one, I've already done the intake manifold and now it seems as if the balance shaft is now worn as it will not run no matter what parts we replace.

Just spent $3500 to have the balance shaft and gear replaced on my 2006 E350, which I purchased new. Problem manifested itself at about 70K miles (just out of warranty), and the dealer, who 8had purchased two new MBs from previouslydeclined to offer any assistance other than a 6K$ repair. I’ve been driving MBs for 25 years, but On principal, I will not purchase another vehicle from a supposedly premium manufacturer that treats its customers in this way. Shame on MB.
