Questions About 2009 Mercedes-Benz CL550’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your CL550’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my CL550's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2009 CL550’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.
