Used E220 CDI owner from Bangalore, India
I picked up my 2003 E220 CDI from a friend of mine last year in Feb. It had 36,000 km on the clock and I have been very happy with it since I bought it. Regularly do long drives on a weekly basis so I thought it was a good buy! The only problem that I have is with the Turbo charger which has a problem with the electronic actuator is what I was told. The car goes into limp home mode especially if I try to push it hard or while climbing a hilly section. I need to pull over and switch off the engine, wait for a couple of seconds and crank her up again and she is back to normal. Would anyone know if the company had recalled this model of cars for a faulty actuator or turbo problem?
It would be of great assistance to users of this model if anyone had any information on this problem. I have read a lot about the possible options of removing the cat, spraying WD 40 and stuff but if the company could resolve this issue it would be a permanent solution to the problem.
