2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Problems

Rough Shifting of Automatic Transmission

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.

Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also

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).

Failed Gateway Module May Cause Lack of Audio/Cell Phone Functionality

Lack of audio or cell phone functionality may be related to the failure of the audio gateway module.
