Exclamation Hello from a new MB owner. Some questions.

Hello! I live in Sweden and just bought my first Mercedes. Because I live in Sweden (9million) it's hard to find a nice car with a lot of options, so I imported mine from Germany. It's a MB C 350 CGI saloon and honestly I'm very happy with it ( my previous car was a BMW) Got 2 years warranty and everything.

Then I found this place and started reading and found out that this model has a camshaft problem. So I was wondering, how do I know if my car is one of those whom will get this problem? And how do I prevent this from happening with my car?

Thanx for any answer!

Hello! I don't think I have this problem (yet) but I'm concerned when I saw that it could cost like 8000 dollars.
The car is manufactured in late 2008. How can a owner check if the car could be bad?
