Defective gears in the balance shaft is a known problem with the M272/3 engines prior to 2009 yet Mercedes refuses to issue a recall (they have issued Technical Service Bulletins internally). So much for customer friendly, quality product, doing the right thing and corporate integrity - MB is "not so much". Cost to fix is $5,500 and up depending on where you live. It is my understanding that a national class action complaint is currently being prepared, I only hope that I can add my name to the list of Plaintiffs. This is certainly not what I expected from a company with the reputation of Mercedes-Benz.
