2003 Mercedes-Benz C320 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mercedes-Benz's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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 load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C320’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my C320 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2003 C320’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
