1998 Mercedes-Benz CL600 Questions & Answers

  • 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. 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 CL600? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small.

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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
