 Description of the problemMy car engine light came on in june of 2014. I took it to an independent repair company. They explained at that time that i may be dealing with a balance shaft issue. As the months progress, my engine light would come on and go off intermittently. The engine light eventually would not go off. I took it back to the repair shop and they confirm that it was a balance shaft issue and that it was a manufacturers problem. I called and emailed mercedes benz for assistance since it was not negligent on my part that this issue occurred. After making several phones and e-mailing the ceo, they told me that i would have to get it checked by a mercedes benz dealer to confirm the issue. I made the appointment with the mercedes benz dealer in december 2014 and they confirmed that it was a balance shaft issue and that it would cost around $5,000 to repair. I called mercedes benz back to request assistance and they explained that since the car had no recalls and that it was not a new car, they would pay 10% of the repair cost. I explained that i did not have the money to pay for the repairs and that i should not have to pay for the repairs since it is a manufacturers problem. To date , i am without a car to drive because i do not have the money to pay for the repairs. Any assistance that you can give in this matter is greatly appreciated.
