3. Blown intercooler
4. Tailight
5. Weird clicking sound behind dashboard (still not resolved)
6. Collapsed hydraulic lifter
7. Oil pump check valve

Well over $3000 in repairs...and I thought Mercedes were somewhat reliable.
I am assuming this is not an MB Certified vehicle. The rule of thumb is to spent more money on buying a certified car, less on repairing it, and if the car cannot be certified, it probably isn't worth it.
