What's happening at Mercedes? First, their initial diesel engines didn't pass the emission standards in all the 50 states and now, they have just issued a major recall for 9004 cars.
The problem: apparently it lies in a crankshaft sensor that can fail, which causes the engine to lose power and causes your vehicle to stop running. Our suggestion: get it fixed ASAP.
The recall affects 2007 E320 Bluetec, ML320 CDI, and GL320 CDI models. I am really hoping that BMW will not have all these problems when they will launch the 335d and the X5d in the States, later this year.
