I recently bought a 2007 C280. Within 3 weeks of driving it, it threw 7 codes relating to the cam adjustment and ESP/cruise control errors (codes 0064, 0060, 0703, C1161, C1707, C1025, C1700). The next day, while driving it to the service department it shut down and left me stranded! After being towed to the mechanic, they said they replaced all 4 of the sensors/magnets that were faulty related to the cam. They said that the other codes were just a result of the cam malfunctioning. I have read that the 2007 C280s have this common issue. The car has 50 K miles.
I am wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and if there was recurrent problems. I really hope that replacing these sensors will solve the issues.
Thanks in advance for your input.
