Questions About 1999 Mercedes-Benz CL500’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. 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 CL500? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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 CL500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my CL500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 CL500’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
