Many MB models have problems with sending units, most common in the ML.

Perhaps the A-Class suffers the same?

The W202 definitely suffers from sending unit problems. Solution is to either try cleaning them or replacing them. Last I checked, they were a dealer only item in the US.

I'll vouch for that..
Just had both of mine replaced ( covered under warranty, thank goodness ).
Dealer told me it is largely caused by our north american fuel composition.
I can agree with that.
General Motors has had a ton of problems with theirs as well.
My understanding is, the replacement units are supposed to have gold contacts, to eliminate future problems.
