 Description of the problemOn march 12, 2011, during an "a" service, i was informed by my mechanic, the check engine light was illuminated due to the left intake cam sensor was defective but it was not a big concern. On september 17, 2011, during a "b" service, my mechanic stated the check engine light was illuminated again for the left intake cam and the right exhuast cam adjuster magnets were defective or the balance shaft was worn. At this point the car was running ok but he said if he runs a diagnostic test on the engine again in the near future and it reads a second problem on the right side cam side, there is a strong possibility teeth on the cam spocket due to the usage of an inferior product. He explained it would be approximately $4,000. 00 to repair, he was repairing a vehicle with the same problem and showed me the wear on the teeth which cause the inbalance of the shaft and the cams come off line. In my mechanics opinion, mercedes benz knows about their defective part byt they do not want to have a "campaign" to resolve the issue and my type/year engine was made with this inferior part. I travel 80 miles to and from work and cannot afford to spend this money for a repair on a vehicle that is suppose to last me forever. *tt
