Mercedes Transmission Repair
Because Mercedes are constructed for superior performance, most transmission problems are caused by a lack of proper maintenance. The inspection and maintenance schedules created by your manufacturer, and recommended by your mechanic exists to extend the life of your entire car. Of course, problems can arise if your mechanic or shop does not have Mercedes-specific experience or European auto repair expertise.
Transmission issues can be very dangerous and costly, but only if they’re not found and addressed early. Keeping up with auto maintenance is only part of good care. Knowing the signs of transmission issues is another part. It also helps to know more about where the parts of your transmission are so that you can take a look yourself.
Shifting delays are common. Perfect shifting from park to reverse, or to drive is excellent. A very slight delay when shifting is normal. A noticeable delay–about two or more seconds–means you probably need to have your transmission inspected. Rough shifting is also a problem; if shifting isn’t smooth, or the gears just won’t shift properly and it’s a struggle, then you probably have a transmission problem. It could be as simple as needing more fluid, or it could be a more serious situation.
