It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mercedes-Benz C350 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 2008 Mercedes-Benz C350’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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 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 C350 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C350's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 C350’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Mercedes-Benz, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
