Balance Shaft on 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230

Has any one had issues with the Balance Shaft on their Mercedes? Filing a complaint with the NHTSA may help get this part recalled if you have.

Thanks, we only service the newer models. No issues yet.
Just looked to see if Mercedes posted a Service Bulletin on the balance shaft or any issues with it but nothing posted in my information.
I understand a service bulletin was posted on 2007. But they are wiggling out of repairs any way they can!
Yes! 2007 Mercedes C230 Balance shaft needs replacement. $5000!!!!!!
I have a 2006 c230 96,000 miles. I am having problems with the check engine light related to this issue. I cannot affort the cost at the dealership. What is the status on the recall possibly?
