Bad transmission for 2006 4matic
By eastsidejl on


2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


My 06 is currently under MB Manufactures warrantee and I have been fighting with MB to replace my faulty transmission.
At 28 mph, it skips.
MB tells me there is nothing wrong and this is normal performance!!!!
I am filing complaints with every agency.
I paid an extra $2k for my extended warrantee when I bought my certified used MB and MB will not fix this!!!!
I would NEVER buy this car!!!!!

Worst Features

Replace faulty transmission!!!!

Mercedes tells everyone they have never heard of the problem. Next time you hear that, ask them who published over 50 service bulletins about the 7-speed transmission problems with Mercedes-Benz name on them? Ask them to put it in writing on a Repair Order. "Nothing is wrong, it operates normal, and is safe to drive." They won't do it. There is your answer!
