Transmission Problems Right After 4 Years
By itsats on

Vehicle

2006 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)

Review

This was the first time that I purchased a brand new car. It has been nothing but problems since owning it. In addition to costly regular maintenance, I have had to replace brakes, rotors twice, tires need to be replaced often, the power steering pump went out, and shortly after 52,000 miles I began having transmission problems. It continues to start in a higher gear creating lag when I push on the gas. Other times, it will not automatically upshift and stays in first gear. In ordet to override the problem, I pull over, turn off the car, and then restart again. I will NEVER purchase a MB again.

Favorite Features

I originally was interested in this vehicle because of the exterior design. Although a little small, I love the design of the interior. It does get good gas mileage, but needs premium fuel.

Suggested Improvements

Recall due to transmission problems.
