2007 R320 w/power problems

Traveling on vacation and yellow engine light came on. When I stepped on gas, it gave me very little at a time, but would get up to speed eventually. Took it to dealer, and was advised my inlet port shut-off flap for the turbo charger was the culprit.
Of course the car is out of warranty...
Every year I go on vacation - driving about 800 miles in a day. I have the car serviced before I go. Had an A service this past December. Shortly thereafter had to spend another $350 for rear taillights - one kept going out, so I had to get the whole rear light cable system for both sides.
I've owned 2 E class wagons in the past, and they are still on the road (with little trouble) with relatives.
I'm losing trust in this car, but wondering if it's justified, or have I just lost patience?
This is a wonderful driving car, not so much fun to park in the city, but it's a workhorse.
I picked up some brochures for the GL (too much $), and another wagon.
What to do, what to do???
