Maybe buying a CLK for my girlfriend.

Is there anyone that can decode the VIN for me?

Moderator Note:

We are using this thread as a central location for VIN decode requests, particularly with respect to Balance-Shaft issues on the CLK350 'M272' V6 engine (and timing chain idler gear issues for the CLK550 'M273' V8).

Until late 2007 / early 2008 Model Year (depending on the market) these two engines were equipped with certain flawed components as noted above. Note that these are the only two engines thus affected, and the vast majority are from late 2005 through 2007. The rate of actual failure is difficult to confirm--many 'affected' engines have gone 100K miles without incident--but, all other things equal, purchasers are nonetheless advised to steer clear of affected models (indicated by engine number as elaborated in this thread) unless the relevant repairs are documented. Read on!

there is not much to "decode".

all it tell you is the model year, what engine the car has and the sequential number off the assempbly line.

FYI, I'll relay to you that I once bought my fiance a used 7 series BMW. When we broke up, she kept the ring and I signed over the title to her so that she could trade for something newer. I was several thousands of dollars lighter, but I'm a nice guy. I'm not so nice anymore.

I don't understand your post about your fiance, does it mean you know how to fight mercedes on this balance shaft fiasco? I'd like your help if you are successful.

Another decode requested for a CPO I am looking at purchasing. If it has the balance shaft issue I would like them to repair it first before I even drive it off the lot.

Thanks for the quick reply. When you said I was safe were you going by the engine number not falling between the range on technical service bulletin?
