Wow, that was quick.

I guess the good thing is they're catching the problems early on enough and finding solutions.

my 2010 C300 was in ten times to find a rattling, noisy dash.

they finally removed dash and fixed. And generated bulletin.

when I drove the demo, the "hood" over the screens was making the same noise. I hope my new e class doesn't have to through the same process

Any TSB's for a defective crankshaft? My car is being held in Germany waiting on the rework. I'm about to cancel the order on the vehicle as I'm not interesting in having a rebuilt engine in a new car that I've never even driven. Any idea how many VIN numbers are affected?

Are these recalls addressed in future production or does a new car arrive with recalls ?

In theory all vehicles delivered after bulletin, recall, and/or service campaign release date should be fine. But as we all found over the years with MB this is not always the case. If you have a particular concern and it is addressed in this thread, simply reference bulletin to SA.

My car was built just the other day and I'll be picking up from the factory on Friday. Is it safe to assume any of these potential issues would've been remedied already?

With the exception of 065822 you should be fine. For peace of mind request VMI (vehicle master inquiry) confirmation that there are no outstanding recalls or service campaigns. I should note this should automatically be done via PDI (pre-delivery inspection).
