reliability issues

I am looking at purchasing any year of cl or clk coupes.

I was a mechanic for the last 10 years. I have moved on to custom metal fabrication. In my experience there were a lot of sensor issues on the benz cars i had worked on. In particular the v6 had oil sensor issues.

This is from my personal experience. Is this a pretty common thing? If i purchase one of the cars. I really don't feel like doing any major repairs. Ie transmission or engine. or trying to find an electrical daemon.

Any input would be great.

Be careful with the 272 engines from circa 2006, major defect other wise they are very nice cars.

The biggest problem was the balance shaft failure on some engines, here is a copy of the DTB and it is a very expensive job if you have no warranty;
