Angry E350 3rd times sudden engine shutoff on the road

I am not sure that dealer can find fault and fix it.
this is 3 rd times and it was recorded.
Just it is 4 months old and 6100miles.

What am I supposed to do?

Don't underestimate dealer. They know. Car is still under warranty, why not take the car to them?
Older E-class had the problem with CPS (crankshaft position sensor). The symptom was the car started, ran fine then engine suddenly shut off while on road, car could not start again until engine cooled down. When car could not start when hot, the engine cranking is heard but it just would not run.
Your video stopped short, showed a little similar symptom but it did not show if you were able to start the car again after the engine shut off. Your car may have a different problem.

I once had a problem in my W210. Everytime I stop the car, the engine just cut off. Found out that it is there's a faulty air mask sensor which detects the gas and air mixture. Changed it and everything is ok after that. Cost about $50.
