Check VIN for engine problems

Could someone please check the VIN WDBRF92H97F932118 on a 2007 C280 and let me know if the engine is in the category of engines that have potential balance shaft problems that are an expensive repair. I am considering buying the car this week and would appreciate any insight

I thought only 3.5L engines had that problem...

Any of the M272 based V6 engines fall into that category for 2006. A lot of 2007s are fine and by 2008 the problem had been fixed in production.
