I don't think you bought a lemon.

The hardest thing to diagnose is a randomly occurring problem, which you've got.

I really feel sorry for you. But, in a way, I'm sitting here thinking that I'm not the only one that these kind of things happen to. I had the famous check engine light that kept on illuminating, and after throwing about $4,000 in parts and labor at it over a 6 month period at two MB indpendents and the dealer, it turns out it was just a blocked egr tube, just like Stevebfl posted. If only I lived near Steve's shop, I'd be his best customer for life...
