Balance Shaft

in Danville, CA on January 18, 2011
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.

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!
