Defying your C280 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C280 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C280's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 C280’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
