New range 2012 B200 diesel manual shift has developed power

Resolved Question:

New range 2012 B200 diesel manual shift has developed power loss again after being fixed free of charge by Mercedes just out of warranty. Is this fault generic because it is dangerous when overtaking?

hello its not a generic fault but the B series model is pretty rare in the UK so dealers may not be that familar with themis the power loss intermittant, only occuring once the engine is warm? and do you get a check engine light when it occurs?

My B class is registered in France where I live. The fault turned
out to be the clutch which cost me 1000 Euros to fix last week, however there was no pre warning or unusual condition it just happened overnight.
Thanks

PS, the cost was a special
Reduction as a valued customer from an verbal norm of 3000 works as told to my wife. Can't help thinking its a generic issue though.
Thanks again for your response which closes my question.
