Mercedes Balance shaft sprocket class action consequences?
New member here - so I apologize if this is a repost or a noob question. I had a worn balance shaft/timing belt (codes P0016 & 17), and got it fixed earlier at a shop earlier this year for the low proxe of $4K. I have a C-Class '06 with about 70K miles on it.
My mechanic recently sent me this link - Mercedes Defective Engine Class Action Settlement Gets Preliminary Approval
which looks like Mercedes is settling with Majeed, Deakin, Reyner et al for this problem. My question is - what does this mean for the rest of us who have spent $$ fixing this problem? Will Mercedes contact the owners, or do we lawyer up and contact them?
