Jittery Transmission/ so-so performance
By carlmk on
Vehicle2003 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewThe transmission/power is not as smooth
as any of my previous four E series MBX(
or my wife's Volvo S80).
Complained to dealer many times and
finally one of the service persons told
me they had complaints that the 2003 is
not as smooth as 1997-2002 series. The
problem seems to be in the torque
converter. In the 2003 it has a lock-up
for all gears. Previous models locked
up only in high gear. The dealer
upgraded the software. This improved the
performance... cut down on herky jerky
xmission. Still not as good as my 2001.
The dealer told me the lockup does not
drop out instantly causing the poor
effect. They are going to check if there
are any other factory suggestions.
Best FeaturesBody style. The should have just dropped it on the 2001 vehicle.
Worst FeaturesMust improve the smoothness of xmission/power. Dissapointing in MBX. Dealer should automatically inform owners of upgrades instead of reacting only to repeated complaints.
