Questions About 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SE’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
