#693 of 697 2007 R320 CDI recall
Jan 19, 2008 (10:07 am)
I read that there is a recall for the 2007 R320cdi as well as the other 2007 diesels. It's about a crankshaft sensor. Any feelings as to how fast one must get this fixed?
I also read that MB has admitted they didn't think the R through enough - really?

i leased a 2007 r-350 in may of 07 i have had brakes done 3x and the light is on again so this would make 4x. i had to have sunroof repaired which was never done to my complete satisfaction. my radio has gone completely out as well as my a.c. not to mention both the head and tail lights have been replaced numerous times. once my warranty ran out all these repair expenses came out of my own pocket. this car has been one issue after the next since i bought it and the longer i keep it the worse my HEADACHE gets i've been wishing i could have given it back a whole year now. one thing for sure i don't think i would ever buy another benz again.

It appears that they have not gotten much better on the quality. I am on month 20 of a 32 month lease on a 2009 R350 and it has been in the shop at least a dozen times and on the back of a flatbed twice. Fortunately all of the repairs have been under warranty and the dealership has been pretty accommodating, although they should be considering how often I am there. There have been several times where they have had the car for 5+ days while the figure out what was causing the problem "du jour". I must admit that when it is working it is hands down the best car I've owned as far as comfort, convenience, performance, etc., but the reliability has been very disappointing.

I know this is an old post but was hoping you can tell me what the outcome was of this issue.
My 2006 R Class is stuck in park now and after three days in the shop, no fix.
#697 of 697 Inlet port shut-off valve
Feb 15, 2012 (2:14 pm)
My 2007 320cdi's engine light came on a few days ago. At the same time I was not able to step on the gas and get any kind of power. It would, however, let me speed up gradually, and hold the speed.
Took it to a dealer and I have to get an INLET PORT SHUT-OFF VALVE FOR THE TURBO CHARGER. Has any one else had this problem?
