Unhappy Timing chain failure:2006 E200 Class Kompressor-Advantgarde

Hello Everybody,
I am new South African to Benzworld and pardon me if I ask same old questions,here it goes:
I own a 2006 model E200 Kompressor with 111 000 kilometres and took it for normal service @ MB and all was well until i drove the car for 600 kilometres and the car started to misfire,vibrate and loose power.Ultimately it couldnt move and was towed to the nearest dealership.
They did some tests,see attached report and quote and concluded that cylinder head need to be reconditioned,relapped,valves replaced and sealed.
Is this normal for a car of such mileage?
My research shows that the engine series has the same problems ans MB hasnt been doing nothing about it except when your car is still on warranty.
Thirdly why didnt they pick it pu during diagnostics when I took it in for service two days ago?
Who must take the cost responsibility?
Why didnt they recall this engines and do something on their single timing chains?
I want to negotiate with MB to get the car fixed at their cost based on the above.Please go through the reports and advice on way forward
Thank you and God Bless

A question such as this should be posted on the car specific forum, the forum for your car is;
