2006 Mercedes-Benz C350 Problems

Engine -- Verified

The camshaft adjuster solenoid (which is related to the variable valve timing system) may fail or timing chain/balance shaft components may wear, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various drivability issues. Mercedes-Benz has released a service bulletin outlining specific repair instructions depending on fault codes stored.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The CD changer may suffer from an internal mechanical problem. Replacement of the faulty unit is generally required to correct this issue.

Drive Train -- Verified

Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

A knocking noise from the upper front strut area can be caused by the hold down nut for the strut coming loose and can be repaired without removing the strut assembly.

Brakes -- Verified

Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
