MB Transmission Class Action?

My 2012 e350 trans just died at 80K miles. $6K bill for rebuild. Dealer Service head, and separately local Benz repair shop told me that the 7 speed transmission has had a very high failure rate due to a design flaw that causes internal failure. Local shop has replaced 12 e 7 speed transmissions and dealer told me it was 'multiples of 10' from them and that MB will not give relief. Furthermore, they told me that MB has issued revisions to its service recommendations around this transmission so they are aware of the problem. I've checked the blogs and it appears that the failure is very common and costly. Was wondering if others have had this happen. Feels odd/infuriating that many have had to pay for something that should last >150Kmiles. I also own a e320 wagon I purchased new in 1999 with a 5 speed that has 180Kmiles on its original trans and have had no problem. Thoughts/experiences appreciated.
