As I was reading your story, the very first thing that was evident to me is that the timing was not set correctly. And after you were told to drive the vehicle to "let the belt break in" I knew that the shop you were at had no bussiness doing this type of work if they are that mis-informed about how an engine is to properly operate. And after driving it like this for any period of time the best advice I can give you is to take the car to the dealer and have a competant tech. fix the errors. I myself have GM and Mercedes-Benz backround, and wish I was there to help..

I totally sympathize with your current situation, but in their eyes - it's 6 years old and they're trying to "run it in and out - for the $$$". (I know I used to work at "Stealershop") To them it's an "ECO-BOX" and they put a fraction of attention to your car vs a new 300 or Charger - they make more in labor $$ in warranty work w/reimbursements/shop labor that actually doing diagnostics. In short, if you really plan on keeping car for any length of time, find yourself a good "small time" mechanic that you can trust. If not, get the car running "decent" and sell it and wash your hands of the entire scenario. It'll help keep your sanity. Just from the detail of your description you're very detail oriented - maybe should take some auto classes and start doing many of your own maintenance and work - it's self satisfying when you do it yourself and you can $ave a ton of $$$
