Replacement of Turbo???

Our R320 has been in the shop quite often in the last 2 months. Everything from a faulty harness throwing CEL to bad air bag in the rear suspension. The latest issue, was noxious fumes invading the cabin making driving EXTREMELY uncomfortable to the point we had to drive with the windows down. Not very comfortable when the outside temperature ranges from -12 to +2 degrees Celsius. Hence, we brought the car into the dealer Thursday evening.

Our technical advisor sent me an email advising us that the turbo needed to be replaced and that the parts would be in on Monday only. No CEL, no loss of power. I don't get it. Car has 123000km of which 40000 to 50000 km have been long hauls. All services have been followed to a tee.

Anyway, THANK GOD we bought the extended warranty! Otherwise, this car would have cost us a bundle over the last year.

Thank you for the information. I have been lurking here for a few days now trying to absorb information on the different model years and their issues. I am really interested in getting a MY10.

Did you buy your R at the MB dealership? Did you get the MB extended warranty? From what I see, MB wants a pretty penny for the extended warranty as well as the car. Here in Vancouver they are about $10K higher than other comparable cars. I have noticed a few for sale in PQ; are they very popular there? The prices seem to be lower than the west coast.
