2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercedes-Benz? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Mercedes-Benz C300? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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 C300 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my C300 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mercedes-Benz C300 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
