Problems with the 350 E and Mercedes Integrity

I have kept great care of my Mercedes 350 E for a number of years and it has only 62000 miles on the odometer. When I saw that there was a proposed settlement in the lawsuit Seifi et al v. Mercedes Benz to reimburse owners for a known defect in the balance shaft sprockets in the M272 engine which I have, I was optimistic. Unfortunately the limit for having the repair done is ten years. With low mileage, as in my case, the repair is not yet needed in the ten year period. My mechanic has told me that the $6000 repair will be needed later since the part has been a problem. I am very disappointed that Mercedes will not stand behind its brand if it seems clear that the vehicle has a major problem, probably from the time it was manufactured. The reimbursement should not have a time period, a reasonable mileage limit only.

First post and you complain that you can't get freebie on 10 years old car?
I understand your concern, but there is a limit to everything and how long would you expect? 20, 30, 40 years?
Quality of W211 is questionable and I would advice you to check wiring on your seat ventilation.
