1988 Mercedes-Benz 260E Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercedes-Benz? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem.

Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mercedes-Benz's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations.
