Even if there is no program, it couldn't hurt to pursue the possibilities. About eight years ago the timing chain failed in my dad's 1988 420SEL with only about 30,000 on it. The car was shipped to Isringhausen where Mercedes payed for a completely new engine and all labor involved.

I think it says a lot when a failure like this is so seldom (at least at this mileage) that the company will fix the problem even after the warranty expired.

Good luck
