Questions About 2000 Mercedes-Benz C230’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercedes-Benz tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C230’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C230 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C230's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mercedes-Benz C230’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
