    Should 4matic change gears at much higher revs?

    Hi all, I'm not a petrol head so apologies if I get my terminology wrong. We recently bought a 2014 GLA 220 4matic, It was raining heavily the other day and I thought it was an opportunity to try the 4matic mode for the first time. I found it changed gears ( at least 1 to 4) at pretty high...

    Hi guys Sorry for the very long post but I'm hoping someone can help me out with gearbox issues I am having. This all started a few months ago when I sent my w212 e250 into a Mercedes specialist for a service and automatic gearbox fluid change. I had previously done some research into the...

    Automatic gears failing?

    Hi, My auto A170 was doing something quite odd today, I was driving along fine for 30 odd mins until I slowed down at a junction and pulled away, the gears started juddering and loosing power, it's as though the thing was in neutral. Pressing down on the accelerator only sent the revs high but...

    C63s W205 Cluncky Manual Gears

    When it's cold and in manual gears either in comfort or sports+ the gear changes are smooth. After a while when the engine warms up the third to forth gear is really clunky. Feels like it's being slammed in and the car jolts forward slightly. Switch back to auto and it's smoothly through all the...

    C63 manual shift down 2 gears

    So although there are a few c63 gearbox threads around this is a specific question as I'm a little confused and wondering if I'm missing something so, When in sports plus driving at say 50-60 and the gearbox is in 6th or 7th with a slight press of the accelerator pedal and it will drop to...

    C63 (2012) Gearbox dropped to neutral whilst driving and wouldn't engage gears

    Hi Folks, Driving home late last night in my (new to me) C63, when coming down to a roundabout (at normal speeds, not spirited at all) i double tapped the down paddle to drop down a gear or two, i think i was in 3rd or 4th at the time - the gearbox then seemed to (whilst showing D for drive...

    E55 won't shift gears

    This is on behalf of a friend who has recently purchased a 1998 E55 with 156k miles. Sometimes the box simply refuses to shift and despite a recent fluid and filter change it continues to play up. Initially I suspected the electro plate but switching off and restarting doesn't cure it. Also no...

    I've spoke to a few Mercedes owners who when telling me about the features their car has, tell me in a rather excited voice/face - It's got Flappy Paddle Gears ! I then say have you ever used them or do you use them ? Their replay has always been - oh no :confused: To be honest it's not...

    600 SEL 722.4 gearbox flaring between 2nd and 3rd gears

    Hi everyone, Another little niggle for which I hope your collective wisdom will have an answer: When cold, the gearbox in my 600 has started flaring on the 2/3 shift. By flaring, I mean that instead of revs tracking as follows: 0-2500/shift point-1000 I witness 0-2500/shift...

    Hi people, When I place the car from startup in to D from P it shudders, and I drive it remains in the lower gear an won't change up. I have stopped the car the issue remains when I start the car up. Only when the car shudders (gear movement) does the issue occur. Has anyone come...

    W211 sticking gears auto

    Hi This happens more on first start up when engine/gearbox oil is cold. When put in D it's not a smooth change and the car gives a jerky type reaction if that makes sense, happens less once car is warm. My aim is at some point to change the gearbox oil, currently is there any way of...

    Hi guys I've had my W211 E220 (2008) for a few weeks now and have noticed first thing in the morning when cold the car stays in lower gears longer before shifting, once it's warmed up it upshifts quicker and also feels a bit smoother, is this normal? My first automatic car so have nothing to...

    Do you manually change gears with your auto transmission?

    A lot of us on here have auto transmission and also can manually change up/down but I rarely find a use for it, or is this just me? Maybe some boy-racers use it to hold on to the lowest gear until the revs reach their limit which could have a use for rapid overtaking maybe.
