Transmission Problems Right After 4 Years
By itsats on


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


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.

Best 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.

Worst Features

Recall due to transmission problems.
