2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your AMG GT C is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my AMG GT C's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mercedes-Benz. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
