This is a pretty common problem on the older Mercedes models, so much so there are detailed guides on how to replace the camshaft position sensors.

Example:
Pelican Technical Article: Mercedes Benz - Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement

I hope you haven't discovered a fault that will be more common. Fingers crossed it's a one off!

I can't believe! In the replacement CLA 200, with 920 km, the same problem occurs again.

Diagnosis: "Position sensor camshaft failure". Again?
Twice in a row in two new cars (CLA 200) does not seem to be a coincidence.

I hope the CLA250 uses a different part.

It is unacceptable and a shame that a new Mercedes would have this problem but given that the CLA is brand new at least it is a small problem. I am sure when you pick it up you can mention it the dealer and have them follow up with the issue and have it covered under warranty.

The story continues. I have decided, after meetings with dealer expert engineers and business executives, return CLA 200.
I try to switch to Mercedes-Benz E series with 274 engine.
This is becoming a nightmare. I note with concern that the repair to the affected client is not a priority.

Can't you get a full refund and buy an audi or BMW?
